Hey everyone, Sorry for the delay in posts on 8-Bit Girl. It's been a very busy month or so for me. However, I'm posting an unboxing video later, so they'll be a post going up at some point tonight. I also have some blogs I need to get lined up, so stay tuned. Thanks for waiting. :) 8-Bit Girl x
Ah...The Walking Dead. Those of you who've followed my blog for a while would know just how much I love this Telltale Games series. I've played it through several times now, on the Xbox 360, Steam and PS4, and I can't wait for Season 3. New screens were shown off at the San Diego Comic Con via a live-stream, and colour me impressed. I knew that they'll be a new graphics engine in play here, but I didn't expect it to look this gorgeous! Hopefully, this will be ironing out the glitchy moments that Telltale Games previous efforts have been known for in the past. First off, here's the new poster:
Don't freak out...I'm changing in a good way, I promise!
I've been asking for comments from everyone over on Twitter and Facebook, and it appears that the vast majority of you guys want me to go ahead with this, so...8-Bit Girl is going down a slightly different direction from now on.
I picked up Zoo Tycoon on the Xbox One this week. I loved the PC games when I was younger, and I'm actually pleasantly surprised by this console edition. It might not be the traditional Zoo Tycoon many of us know and love from the past, but they've done something good here. It's been modernised, and the ability to walk around the park rather than stay in the top-down view really works. The graphics are pretty too. So whilst I'm still working through the end of the tutorial stages (I highly recommend doing those first, even if you're familiar with this series, as things have changed here), I thought I'd share some of the "easter eggs" I remember unlocking in the originals. Check them out below.
So, 8-Bit Girl has a new design! My friend Mark Pearce kindly created this image of me to pop up as the banner image on the blog. You'll also see it over on my Facebook and Twitter pages too. I love that he added my kitty in, and that tongue expression? I'm totally guilty of pulling that when I'm concentrating. :P Thanks buddy! I really appreciate it. Here's the artwork in more detail:
