Coming Around - Parallax Project - I Hate Girls (CD)

It would not be the album that I'd recommend for a first time listener though That would probably be either Horse Rotovator or Love's Secret Domain, which are more accessible and structured. Elph is not a real group, but rather the name Coil gave themselves for the project. The tracks are atmospheric sound "auditions," rather than actual songs. There's something simultaneously frail and Horse Rotorvator. This was Coil's second full-length release, and it is perhaps one of the most genuinely dark albums ever recorded.

Most of the songs have a menacing sexual feel to them, and the subject matter is death and perversion. There is an Eastern feel to some of the music, and "Penetralia" demonstrates how much of an influence this band was for artists like NIN and Ministry. The cover of Leonard Cohen's "Who By Fire" is outstanding, remarkably faithful to the original while still sounding like Coil. Comalies [Vinyl]. Lauderdale, FL United States.

Let me start by letting you, the reader, know what kind of music I enjoy. I dig good rock and roll, and those hair bands know how to rock I must say I was very sceptical when I first purchaced this because I absolutely hate the "Nu Metal" bands that are coming around these days.

I was afraid this was going to be one of those kinds of bands. Meanwhile, in keeping with their aggressive peace campaign, a network of prison facilities dubbed New Australia are built on Mars. All "undesirables" are sent there — criminals, enemies of the state, and those who oppose the new movement.

Eventually there is a revolt on Mars, and the "inmates" form their own government and military. The people of Earth are enjoying their utopian peace, and assume that the Mars colonies will die out without supplies from Earth. They are sadly mistaken. Soon, Earth is served notice that the Mars warships and tankers are on their way to rob earth of most of its water, then destroy the dried husk of the planet.

They have six months until the Armada arrives. Earth has few defenses, but musters up a paltry effort by pulling antique fighters out of retirement. But the President knows there is no hope, they cannot repel the marauders and the Earth is doomed. So a secret mission is put into motion. The Westwick is one of the four ships, and it is captained by John O'Neil. But the mission goes all wrong — the other three ships are overtaken and destroyed, and eventually, the Armada catches up with the Westwick long before they can reach Darkstar.

And that's where the story begins. How long is the game? There is an opening sequence and intro credits with Peter Graves commenting on the state of things. A three decade passage of time is eluded to, all the while flashbacks and glimpses into the tragic past flicker before you as you sleep in a cryogenic coma.

Then you suddenly emerge from the sleep chamber and the intro movie into the interactive world. There is no shift in quality of graphics. My customers have choked down 13GB of data onto their hard drive, now for the benefits of that. Everything is pre-rendered at the same quality throughout.

The player may now explore the ship real time. You O'Neil have no memory; the excessive time in cryo has robbed you of that. There are three cryo-chambers near yours. The next lies open and empty, the inhabitant Trace Beaulieu is missing — and so is one of the Starship's two Shuttles. And in the last compartment lies a mummified corpse Frank Conniff , his left hand severed and missing, the glass of the chamber shattered. You may now go anywhere in the ship you like at any time, but you must fix things along the way, power up the ship a layer at a time, and figure out what has happened, both in the big picture destruction of Earth and in the small, immediate one the mystery of the mission and what has gone so terribly wrong.

As you unlock parts of the ship, your are rewarded with the back-story chapters one at a time that slowly paint a dark picture of the apocalypse and end of humanity. You become aware there is a traitor to the mission, and you know it is imperative you discover who it is. Along the way you are both assisted and irritated by a robot named SIMON voiced by Frank Conniff who has slowly gone insane while the crew slept.

I've heard different reports of gameplay time, but a common report is at least 20 hours. Most of it is spent aboard the Westwick uncovering her mysteries, but a trip down to the planet is required to acquire water for the starships' damaged and bone-dry cooling tanks.

While there you'll encounter an Alien Temple, an enemy space ship, and your nemesis. There is a lot of real estate to cover, and it's all fun to explore.

After surviving over two-dozen forks in the plot ending in your death, you return to the Westwick and face the mastermind behind the mutinous plot. Hopefully the decisions you've made up to this point are all good ones, or you will be ill-equipped to defeat this enemy.

And even if you are prepared, your intelligence, wits, and resourcefulness will dictate whether or not you live or die, and if the mission will be finally fulfilled. To what extent had it been a challenge to maintain press and community interests on the Darkstar project over the years? Indeed we fought a few internet rumors that the game was simply an elaborate hoax, vaporware.

The exact opposite has turned out to be true. We shocked the unfaithful by actually accomplishing the impossible — finishing the thing and doing it outside the system during a recession. I have learned that the adventure gaming community consists of a load of really tolerant folks who have been longing for some of the old-school sensibilities to come back, they are sick of the re-skinning of worn out game engines, and want more story, mystery, and eye candy, not just another sequel.

I have received thousands of emails through the years asking questions, cheering us on, and letting us know they'd be there when we were ready to release. And I replied to every single one. Indeed, in the first month during phase one of our layered release schedule we've sold games to nearly all 50 states in the US and to over 20 countries overseas solely out of our online store.

Our demographic includes a surprising amount of female players which tells me our appeal is wider than that of a lot of video games out there.

Once the game was released, how difficult was the marketing effort? What are the future plans, if any, for the Darkstar project? Band Alternative Rock. Thanks for previewing Band Search.
