Now playing: Syberia II

Continuing right where the first Syberia game ended, Syberia II brings the story to a more or less satisfying end. Still having some of the issues of the first part (lengthy walk sequences, no interactions with non-game-relevant things at all, mediocre voice acting) the story is engaging and interesting enough to keep going.

Now I'm curious in what direction Syberia III which will be launching in a few days will head, and I'm hoping they improved upon the game-play-issues.

Now playing: Syberia

With Syberia 3 just a few days away, I though it was about time to revisit the classic. And since I'm currently trying to learn Spanish, I thought it would be a good idea to just play the game with Spanish text and audio.

Yes, the game has it's flaw, with an extreme amount of walking involved to get from A to B (and then back and forth between A and B several times because you forgot something) and mediocre acting in many parts, but it does have an intriguing and unique story, a (challenging but not frustrating) mixture of problems and riddles to solve, and a very nice soundtrack.

Also... Mammoths!

I'm probably going to spend my 10 hours of preview time customizing my character... ;)

Polymer in Production

When I was tasked with including new functionality into an existing, rather big internal web application, I found myself in a bit of a dilemma.

For my own personal projects and several other internal projects I did at work, I have grown to love web-components using Polymer because of the ease of development and the natural way to structure applications into (re-usable) parts.

The existing web application in question had been mainly developed with a once (and still) very popular library that shall not be named.

A full rewrite of the application was out of question due to time and budget restraints, but using Polymer would have a lot of benefits for the future as far as testability, maintainability and extensibility are concerned.

In this blog post I will go over some of the things I did and had to consider to make this work.
