Parallels Fic Exchange [Jun. 15th, 2012|08:51 pm]
The Hotel Dusk LJ Community

Hello again, sleepy fandom. I come once more to promote a fic exchange. This time I've nominated Hotel Dusk for parallelsfic. Nominations are closing soon but there's still time. Sign-ups haven't started yet, so you have plenty of time regardless.

It is a fic exchange for fandoms of Asian origin, so if you're interested, please check it out.

Hello small fandom! I've just nominated Hotel Dusk for yuletide if anyone is interested in joining in this year. Nominations will be going on for a few more days, so you have time to nominate more characters and fandoms. :D
I've nominated Kyle, Bradley, Rachel and Melissa.

"Frannie and D"Collapse )

Hey there! First time poster! Well, kind of....My sister is wyverngirl and she's posted some of my work on this community before--now I can! :D
I drew this Frannie and D from Trace Memory a long time ago during the school year, and I really like it~ :D There's not a lot of fan art for Frannie or D in their time period, so I thought it'd be nice to post. :) It's not done, of course, but it's something!
D wasn't originally going to be in it, it just seemed to happen that way!

Of course, it's one of my favorite games and I wish CiNG hadn't gone bankrupt. D:

Hello! [Dec. 30th, 2010|10:05 pm]
The Hotel Dusk LJ Community

 Hey all! I'm a big fan of mystery games for the Nintendo DS, it started with Professor Layton, but two Christmases ago, I got Hotel Dusk as a gift. Sadly, I didn't play much, and I was turned off by the lack of a big mystery within the first chapter. One year later, I decided to play the game again, and started a new file, and within a day or two, I beat the entire game! Haha! I loved the game, and thought it was great! So, when I didn't hear anything about Last Window being released in the States, I got it as a Christmas gift this year! Naturally, I completed that game instantly, and I loved it! Though it was much shorter than Hotel Dusk, I thought the game itself was still excellent. So Im here to join this community, as I know the games stopped, I hope to continue my Kyle Hyde experience here! 

Also, since it was a year since I played Hotel Dusk. Was it determined that Ben. Bradley died, or that he is still missing? It would be nice if some ex-Cing guys could join Nintendo and make just one last game, since Nintendo owns the IP.

Sprites? [Dec. 16th, 2010|11:07 pm]
The Hotel Dusk LJ Community

Hiya! So, I finished playing Last Window last night and as with Hotel Dusk, fell in love with the beautiful artwork. I'd like to make some icons and I was wondering if there are any game sprites of either game floating around the interwebs somewhere or if I'll have to rip my own? I've done it before, but only with stationary sprites and the thought of capturing and cleaning moving ones is a little daunting! I've seen the ones at Court Records, but was hoping for a wider selection. Thanks!

flash music video WIP [Dec. 4th, 2010|12:02 am]

[Tags|, , ]

Ah, I feel kind of bad for posting a WIP, but it's been pretty quiet around here and I figure it'll be a while before I finish this anyways...

I am making a Hyde & Bradley themed music video/animation in Flash! (it will eventually be overtly shippy, but the WIP so far is more just general Kyle angsting XD)

Thanks for viewing! :)

BlahDVD -- Good news! [Nov. 1st, 2010|06:41 pm]
The Hotel Dusk LJ Community

[mood |impressedimpressed]

So awhile back, I left a reply on this post in the community re: pre-ordering Last Window. At the time, due to region/export restrictions, most believed Play Asia to be the one and only option.

HOWEVER, I am happy to report that BlahDVD came through for me, and for a good 20USD cheaper than Play Asia.
NOTE: I must mention that I cancelled my pre-order initially due to personal financial reasons, but just on October the 21st I gave it a go, and just about 10 days later, it was sitting in my mailbox! I only mention this so that you don't think it took them more than a month to get the game to me - not the issue at all!

As they bill in £ (pound sterling) as opposed to your local currency, you may wish to check the exchange rate via xe.com or the like, but using a Capital One* card (they don't charge any currency conversion fees, and their bank rate is always fair, imo) as of October the 23rd, I paid only $37.99 for this game!! $37.99!! I paid no VAT, and the shipping was a mere £1.98!

*ETA - For cards that charge a conversion/foreign transaction fee, I've never seen or heard of a more than 5% fee. All in all, while inconvenient, and a misfortune if you're travelling overseas where you'll be using your card a lot, for one small-ish transaction, it shouldn't be a deal-breaker. As for exchange rates tend to ironically be best through the banks.

In case some of you might be thinking it's too good to be true, I've taken a few shots of the packaging/unwrapping.

It's a little image-heavy, so I'll tuck it under here...Collapse )

Another thing worth noting is whether your country charges customs/tariffs on imports. The full value of the game is listed on the customs form, so if this would be an issue for you, this may not be the most viable option. Luckily, here in the US (for now...) we're not burdened with these sorts of things.

I've yet to play, but I did fire up the game just to make sure everything seemed to be working right -- VERY EXCITED! With the holidays coming up, please consider picking this up! If you can't spring the less than $40, pass the link on to someone who might be stumped where you're concerned for gift-giving. ;)

Hope everyone's enjoying the game!!
