Mood: 't is the season to be jelly

[*] posted on 25-3-2006 at 12:40


I've had a lot of different systems over the years, it all started with an Apple II we had as a kid. Later on we had a Commodore 64, MSX1, Commodore Amiga, Apple Mac and various PCs of course. Also had a couple of consoles, a NES, SNES and a PS1.

I still think the C64 and the MSX were great gaming machines in their day. Except for the tape loading, that did suck, but a separate disc drive for the C64 cost about 500 euros or something back then.




Hey kids! Do you hear that sound? . . . Freaks will be coming from miles around!

There's two Fort Boyard games, one is the PC version of the show. There's a French version of it, but we have the Dutch version with the voice of original host Bas Westerweel. The Dutch shows only ran in 1988 and 1989, and the game was released in 1997. It's fun, has live footage of the game, beautiful music, but pretty much all control is by mouse and some games really get you RSI.

There's also Fort Boyard, la legende. That's an adventure game where you are a guy trying to find the treasure Napoleon buried in the Fort. It runs on 3 CDs and is pretty much unsolvable. And at occasions really very creepy.

I loved the TV-shows when they aired in Holland, but I discovered them very late so I saw 2 or 3 shows. Later, when TV5 showed them, I watched the French shows every Friday even though I didn't understand much of it. Still have plenty of videos of it.

What did the presenter look like ? Was it Patrice Laffont or Jean pierre Castaldi ? I liked that show too when I was younger, I still like it but don't watch it as often as I did then. I preferred when the candidates were unknown people, for a few years the candidates have been sportsman, singers etc... I would have really wanted to participate in that show when I was younger.

There were 2 hosts, a guy (Bas Westerweel) who ran along with the players like Cendrine used to do (was it Cendrine?) and a lady whose name I don't know who was the Patrice Lafont. Dutch version had no actors besides the old guy in the tower, who looked just like French Père Fouras, and Passe-Partout and Horloge which are the same little guys you know as Passe Partout and Passe-Pas.
Instead of the word-guessing, one of the Dutch team members had to swim through a swimming maze where they had to find a code, memorize it, then enter it on the letter board.
Some of the key-games were: the tilted climbling wall, a room with a balance beam on the side (that one was scary), something in a type of haunted room with a lot of chests with disgusting things in it, one of them had a key, and a dark maze.

Bas Westerweel

Patrice Laffont was kind of the Fort Master, an old guy looking like that:
.
I asked you that cause I wanted to know what version of the show you watched on TV5.

Watched the French shows from 1996 to 2000. After that TV5 stopped showing them.

Yeah, pretty bad....It didnt last long on terrestrial TV, and is now resigned to re-runs on Challenge TV, which specialises in old quiz shows....I guess it was no worse than The Crystal Maze.......

I can imagine. It was also running for a short period on the Dutch tv. The Format is OK but it is very French. Shouting and running from one place to another. That's ok but in Dutch that results in a clamorous situation. The French production was much better. Brings me to give them a compliment in working with sound and light. (Son et Lumiere). If you have visted futuroscope or walibi Stroumpfghr (??) (smurfs) or Crazy Horse in Paris you learn to value their insights. But transforming one of their shows into another language is quite impossible though.

Boyard


Nahhhhhhhh the root cause is that its often thought that a good show can be totally translated 1 to 1 in another language... It could have been great it just needed more time, and nicer candidates. :umm:
I guess those shows are really made by the teams that participate. And they on the Dutch version at least had that very type of people whom you'd neither see nor want to see, and that accidentally end up standing next to you at camp sites...

Back to the original topic:

Anyone plays Cluedo? It's my favorite board game, unfortunately the recent version is very sensitive to bugs. Also, the rules are American, and not Dutch, even if you play the Dutch version.


Plus this sick little adaptation (has been beautifully animated though). It's the first of a trilogy, but Hasbro won't release the other two, leaving the unfortunate players in the middle of a weird story.

I've never even played the real board game. We didn't play that kinds of games when I was young.

Yeah I know, I was so mistreated when I was a kid.:D My father's idea of a good sunday afternoon ? Watching the 4 hours long television adaptation of Gunter Grass's "The flounder". When you're 7 year old it quickly gets boring, even if there's a talking fish in this story.:D

But you can play games now. There is no age limit.
They even have "adult games" :grin:
You can start with Mahjong or a more or less complicated pinballgame. Also The Elk Moon Murder is very nice even as death trap dungeon. :freak:
