Pirates are the new Monkeys

Pirates of the Caribbean has finally been released in Germany on Tuesday (Tuesday? Why Tuesday?). Of course we went to see it on the first day. I liked it a lot. It is funny, action-packed and just very enjoyable to watch. And Johnny Depp is unbelievably great. And Orlando Bloom... *sigh*.

*clears throat* Anyway. It was cool to recognize a couple of scenes from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland. I _liked_ the shifting between skeleton and meat-pirate when the cursed ones moves from light to shadow and vice versa. That was very neat. Even though the skeletons themselves weren't all that great. Especially the movement looked wooden. Reminded me of Army of Darkness.

I'll go watch it again next week or so. I found my Pirate slang to be a bit rusty and didn't understand everything that was said. I might have to play Secret of Monkey Island or Pirates! again. In fact I would very much like to play a pirate game right now. Good thing Sid Meier is currently developing a new Pirates!

Pirates? Games?

Check out Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates.

It’s in a free beta right now.

Oooh. It’s a fun game, but the puzzles get rather boring after the umpteenth time.

I remember reading about it but then forgot about it again. I played it for a while yesterday evening. It is pretty interesting. But as Skeeve said I found the puzzles to get boring after a while. Plus many of the puzzles are just slightly different versions of existing puzzle games. It is a great idea though and I hope it’ll get more interesting over the next months…
