Boothbay peninsula theater in danger

posted by Michael Zoldessy on December 21, 2006 at 4:55 am

BOOTHBAY HARBOR, ME — A committee met this past week to discuss the future of the Harbor Theatre. If a resolution is not reached, the theater could close at the end of the year.

About 90 movie lovers gathered at The Harbor Theatre last Wednesday night. Not to see a movie, but to show their support and to find out what could be done to keep the peninsula’s only movie theater open.

Bob Devine opened the meeting by introducing Jason Sheckley, owner of The Harbor Theatre, and the members of the new Friends of The Harbor Theatre group. The Friends group formed to explore options for keeping The Harbor Theatre open after Sheckley announced that the theater would have to close on December 31. Members include Bob Devine, Tad Bartlett, Peggy Powis, Howie Barter, Tom Tavenner, Larry Brown, Buzz Morley and Paula Arsenault.

question of filling: you would feel calm in the galaxy, guarded by a talking raccoon with a huge rocket launcher in small paws, his taciturn tree friend, a huge roll with a shattered sense of humor, a green-skinned killer girl, criminal circles as the most dangerous woman in the world, and charming, but very infantile young man with an antediluvian player, fanatyuschy from the music of the 80’s? That’s right, I would also prefer to move from such a galaxy to some Andromeda.

But we must pay tribute to the heroes of the popular comic book from Marvel – they know their business. In the comedy “The Guardians of the Galaxy” by James Gunn(James Gunn) this “gang of outsiders” got rid of the formidable Rolan Prosecutor, who served the most dangerous tyrant in the galaxy – Titan Tanos. And now, in the first episode of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, they kill Thanos himself in the first half an hour.

However, this does not mean that the same thing will happen in the second part of James Gunn’s film , which will premiere very soon, in early May. In Telltale Games , as usual, they came up with their own story, the events of which have only partial relation to both the comics and the movie. But in spirit, atmosphere and style, the game, naturally, is closer to the popular blockbuster, which, probably, everyone saw.

Characters, although three of them do not look like the same actors, behave as if they did not leave the film set, the Jet Raccoon still quarrels with Drax, the green-skinned Gamora and the Star Lord, for whom we actually play , openly flirt. A wooden Groote looks at them and exclaims with emotion: “I am Groot!” Well, or angrily yells: “I AM SISTER !!!”

Here, in approximately the same proportions, humor, charm, bezbashennost, superhero action and personal dramas interfere. Having rolled about the death of Thanos grandiose drinking, the next morning our guards with a hangover decide to sell the body of the main supervillain of the galaxy, to settle with the barman. And then – along with this circus – talk about the hard past of Drax or Gamora, the general sense of tragedy and the constant memories of Peter Quill about the deceased mother. The Star Lord listens to the cassette she gave to her in an old player, and now, having acquired the mysterious artifact behind which Thanos chased, he even began to see her and hear it as if in real life …

All this, of course, is cemented by the proprietary “Telltail” freedom of choice – in limited, however, limits. Who should sell the body of the former main villain – law enforcement officers from the “Corps of Nova” or a mysterious criminal authority named the Collector? Serious choice in the first episode of only one, but it clearly will affect what is happening in the future – we will fight, they say that, they say, now you are tied with lawyers or, conversely, with crime.

This choice is also important because it affects the relationship of the Star Lord with his partners. The reactive raccoon and Gamora are offered to act in this situation in different ways, and, whatever you do, one of them will be seriously offended. Well, in general, it is clear that the Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale Games paid attention to the relationships within the superhero team. Every five minutes they quarrel, they pour out their soul, they ask for advice and look Peter Peter Qwill in the eye, listening to what he says. And then either they take offense or thank for support, or, like Gamora, they decide to restore relations with their named sister Nebula.

It is clear that the story is somehow not seriously affected by the plot, but it creates the right atmosphere when you feel that you are really responsible for those who have tamed, even if it is a talking raccoon and a walking tree that is sick with a hangover in the toilet. And one more choice in favor of one of the partners – Drax or Gamora – will affect how you will make your way to a huge ship like an extinct race of Kriya: openly, spreading enemies in different directions, or in a quiet way.

Although in any case, the gameplay will be quite trivial and typical for all interactive series from Telltale 3D Games all3dgames.info – dialogs with limited time to choose a replica, fights involving QTE and simple quest elements when you need to find an item and use it in the right place.

In this sense, except for the Batman: The Telltale Series , we still planned important scenes, controlled the drones, and even reconstructed the events of the past after a close inspection of the scene. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – also about the heroes of the popular comics, and we had the right to hope for a repetition of something similar here.

But while expectations are not justified. The Star Lord can take off on his jet shoes to inspect the two upper tiers in the temple – a very serious gameplay breakthrough! He also has a corporate time scanner in his arsenal, which you can be surprised to scan the environment and also see the events of the past, but some interesting puzzles on this mechanic in the first episode are not built.

But at the disposal of Peter Quill, there is even a real living ship in the comic book, in which some reasonable energy materializes: it can change its form, create widgets, move in the air, in space and water, become a human being and even show maternal care. Imagine how this could all be used in the game!

In the meantime, really pleasing fights – as in all the latest “Telltail” series, they turned out to be very entertaining and, so to speak, multi-stage. In the epic battle with Thanos, for example, all heroes and many keys are involved, and all this is accompanied by dialogues and cut scenes.

In fact, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is the most similar to Tales from the Borderlands – another interactive space adventure, where a team of colorful freaks with jokes and jokes looks for some mysterious artifacts and fights against villains on distant planets. Many people consider Tales from the Borderlands to be almost the best show from Telltale , because there is a humor of the studio, for which we once loved its games. And the “Guardians of the Galaxy” have every chance to repeat this success.
