Is this a Japanese release game?
Does sound Scottish...
I just randomly found this review online. I have no clue who it is reviewing the game.I have NEVER heard about this game before. Which calls in questions my dreamcast creds! A game that I didn't know existed! Just when you think you have a handle on the dreamcast thing...this happens!
I can tell you two things about this... The TV programme it was featured on is called Videogaiden, which is aired on BBC Scotland late on a Sunday night. (Other UK viewers can acess the show via satellite.) It's a good show which should be broadcast at an earlier time throughout the UK. The two hosts ran a feature about campaigning for Shenmue 3... One pro, one against. It meant that the game was brought to a new audience in 2006. Their web address is :http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/tv/videogaiden/The other thing I can tell you is that Ryuchi Sakomoto, who did the music for the game is a member of Avant Garde Jap-pop collective, 'The Yellow Magic Orchestra' who I believe worked with David Bowie in the eighties.David Bowie in turn did the musical score for the surreal sci-fi Dreamcast release Omikron (released in the UK as The Nomad Soul). He also makes an appearance in the game...Now I knew all that without even looking anything up... Do I score highly on the Dreamcast obsessometer?BTW... I'd never heard of L.O.L either!(LOL!)
Wow, father, that was quite an impressive comment!
Father Krishna: Actually, Rab and Ryan reviewed L.O.L. on their Web-only show, Consolevania, which is a slightly different animal. Both programs, however, are worth a look, as the crew involved are articulate, funny and spot-on in most every important way. For my part, I'd heard of L.O.L., but didn't track it down til they talked it up. The game's a quirky gem so far.
