Lemmings PSP Review Imminent

My wonderful (f poorly written) review of Lemmings PSP will be up on the site later this evening, as the game launches today. Whoo, eh?

Lemmings in the media
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 16/02/06 4:41pm CET

Sony have started advertising Lemmings PSP, with ads popping up in various gaming industry magazines such as Edge Magazine.

Edge have also reviewed the game, giving it a rather harsh 6/10 score. Their main concern is the D-Pad cursor control (which I myself have had reservations with since I received my review copy), and I quote, "...it's the trawl of the cursor between one lemming and the next that does this interpretation the most damage." I think this point can be mooted rather easily by one of the other controls within the game, but more on my thoughts and feelings on the game later this month when my review goes online on February 24th...

More Lemmings Stuff
Posted in Archived by Pooka at 15/02/06 7:51pm CET

Here. It's a mini-site which was set up specifically for Japan, so it's... err... well, it's in Japanese.

But there are new screenshots and some kooky animations which can't be seen on the official Lemmings site, so it's worth a look.

Server move... again?!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 14/02/06 12:16pm CET

Our esteemed hosts have arranged for a new server for us to move to, considering all of the problems we've had with this one. Expect the move to happen later this week, as we need to re-upload all of the files to the new new server. Fun, eh?

Alien Breed Remake on hold
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 13/02/06 3:25pm CET

Mental Illusions's Alien Breed psuedo-3D remake project has been put on ice for the time being due to the project lead's "real life". The page for the site has been removed, however you can still get the Demo at Mental Illusions' downloads page.

For those of you still hankerin' for some Alien Breed remakey goodness, Alien Breed: Obliteration is a very good remake/continuation of the original game in the series.

Expected Downtime
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 12/02/06 8:08pm CET

Dream17 has, again, been at the receiving end of some webhost-related server issues which have, again, been resolved. Again. But I am assured by our esteemed webhosts, CycHost, that the site will be moving to a new server. So we can expect some more downtime during the week while the server switch occurs.

Sorry about the mess.

Unscheduled Downtime

Apologies for the downtime over the past couple of days, but it appears to be sorted now.

...And it's down again
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 08/02/06 10:02pm CET

After all of the effort we put into the server move, the Forum is down. Fortunately (at least, from our perspective) this is due to a server error and not a balls-up that we have any control over.



Cyclaws' Edit: Sorry about that, MySQL was playing up. All sorted now.

Have Your Say
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 08/02/06 12:10pm CET

The Dream17 website will be undergoing some Behind-The-Scenes fiddling and tweaking in the future, which will hopefulyl optimise the running of the site and make things a damned sight easier for us to maintain. No this seems as good a time as any to ask you - what do you want out of Dream17? What, if anything, would you change or improve about the site? Let us know what you think.

Forum Down
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 05/02/06 7:24pm CET

The forum is, of course, down. Ho hum. We'll get it sorted out momentarily.

Working... sort of
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 05/02/06 6:48pm CET

Most of the files have now been transferred, and the site seems to be working fine. We're still transferring a lot of the CAPS Disk Images, and most of the Forum information (I have no idea if the forum will be working by tonight). Otherwise, we have ourselves a server move!

Not quite
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 03/02/06 9:41am CET

The server move isn't going as smoothly as we'd hoped. The new server is up and running, and the domain name has, in theory, transferred over (some of you who have gone to Dream17.info have been taken to a little message redirecting you here, to the old Fried-Comic.com server). Hopefully it'll all get sorted out today.

Server move!
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 02/02/06 7:17pm CET

The new server move is happening NOW. The Dream17.info domain won't work for a while, but you can still use fried-comic.com/dream17 for the time being.

SuperBlog down
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 02/02/06 1:29pm CET

Some delightful fellow has seen fit to hack the SuperBlog, so it's down for the time being. Lovely.

There are also a couple of new wallpapers available to thems what want 'em.

Planned Server Move
Posted in Archived by Squirminator2k at 01/02/06 2:35pm CET

Dream17 will be moving to a buwahnd spanking new server within the next week, which means you may have some trouble calling up fried-comic.com/dream17/ files once this happens. There will be plenty of pros to the move - including an impending site resdesign of sorts. Keep an eye out for when the server-shift occurs.

If you have ANY links going to http://www.fried-comic.com/dream17/ (or any files contained therein) on your website, I suggest you temporarily change this to the www.dream17.info address (with nothing after the .info, as it's a redirect URL). A new URL will be available soon.
