          Best Air Fryer      Cache   Translate Page      

There will never be a real substitute for deep-frying. It simply can’t be done. If you’re willing to make a small compromise on taste though, you can make deliciously crispy food with a small fraction of the calories you consume when you eat deep-fried foods. Air fryers cook up crispy food without all the oil and grease you get from deep-frying. A good air fryer is absolutely a must-have, and you’ll find all of your best options right here.

Best medium-sized option

People with small or medium-sized families will find that the GoWISE USA GW22639 3.7-Quart Programmable Air Fryer is a fantastic option. It’s a wonderfully consistent air fryer that crisps thoroughly, and it also has eight different presets for common foods like chicken, steak, and fries, so it’s easy to get a perfect fry every time.

Best XL option

If you have a larger family — or if you’re just REALLY hungry — the GoWISE USA 5.8-Quarts 8-in-1 Electric Air Fryer XL is a terrific upgrade from out medium-sized recommendation. It’s just as consistent as the smaller model and it also has simple presets for things like chicken and fries, but it has an extra 2 quarts of capacity as well.

Best all-around option

Those looking for the best possible air fryer experience will find it in the Oster Dura Ceramic Air Fryer, a higher-end model that’s packed with unique features. A special tilting mechanism combines with multi-source heating to crisp perfectly and evenly every time, and this model has titanium-infused nonstick coating that is 8 times more durable than other nonstick surfaces. What’s more, it has several cooking modes in addition to air frying such as baking, grilling, and roasting. That’s right, it’s the Instant Pot of air fryers!

More options:

  • DASH Compact Electric Air Fryer. DASH is known best for its rapid egg cooker that cooks perfect eggs with the push of a button, but its compact air fryer is just as impressive and easy to use.
  • Chefman 3.5 Liter/3.6 Quart Air Fryer. This is another good option for anyone in search of a medium-sized model at an affordable price point.
  • BLACK+DECKER Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer. With just two dials used to operate it, things don’t get much simpler than the Purify air fryer.
  • Ninja Air Fryer. Ninja has become a top brand when it comes to kitchen gadgets and this multi-function 4-quart air fryer is a great reminder of why.
  • COSORI Air Fryer. This model has a large 5.8-quart capacity, 11 different cooking modes, and it even comes with a free cookbook packed with 100 different recipes.

          All About Me And What's To Come~ Felice Stevens       Cache   Translate Page      

Another Saturday is here and another All About Me And What's To Come feature! Today we are excited to have author Felice Stevens here talking about her books. Grab some coffee, tea, whatever makes you happy and enjoy.

When A Series Isn’t Quite A Series.

A few years ago my friend Kade Boehme and I sat in our favorite Mexican place having a margarita or three and in the middle of talking books and publishing we thought, what if we wrote a series that isn’t really a series? 

No we weren’t drunk.
Well maybe a little tipsy.

ANYWAY, we came up with the idea of writing a series not based on the characters in the books but using New York City Landmarks as the backdrop. Every book would be about a different couple but the NYC landmark would play an integral part of the book—almost like a third character.

Kade went first and his book, Ferry Tales came out, focused on a romance involving the Staten Island Ferry. My book, Under the Boardwalk came next and I had such fun writing it. I love the beach and it brought back memories of my childhood at Brighton Beach and Coney Island. The smells of the food, the sound of the waves all played a part in the creation of Alexi and Cam’s story. I had the song by The Drifters on repeat and it put me in a happy place.

The next book in the Landmarks series is my most recent release, His Uptown Guy and takes place in the landmarked Dakota apartment building on Central Park West. While the movie Rosemary’s Baby was filmed there, the Dakota is probably best known for the place where John Lennon was murdered. He was shot right outside the iron gates.

When I set out to write a story I knew I wanted it to be an opposites attract romance. Many of my books focus on that couple dynamic. While I like reading about two big alpha guys, I’m more comfortable writing couples that don’t naturally fit together and, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, I have to figure out how they manage to complete each other and fall in love.

On the outside no two people seem more opposite than blue-blood Jesse Grace-Martin and the son of Albanian immigrants, Bronx-born Dashamir Sadiko. But as always, people tend to see only with their eyes and never look past what is on the surface. Jesse seems to have everything but he’s a prisoner of his mind. He may live in a multi-million dollar apartment but he’d give everything to be able to walk down the block and go shopping, or see a movie. Dash is a porter and spends his days hauling trash and sweeping the floor but he will be the first in his family to graduate college and has dreams of being a CPA and making enough money so he and his mother and sister don’t have to live in poverty.

See? You wouldn’t think these two had anything in common. But trust me they do. Against the backdrop of the beautiful Dakota, they meet, become friends and eventually fall in love. Now when I decided to set this story in the Dakota I had no idea there are no interior photographs of the courtyard —except from afar—and none of the inside hallways and lobbies. Even when Rosemary’s Baby was filmed and Mia Farrow ran through the halls to escape the coven of witches she feared were after her baby, the building refused to let Roman Polanski film in the hallway, so he used other buildings in the city. I used a little poetic license to build the tension and drama for Jesse and Dash.

What’s next in the Landmarks series? Well Kade has some ideas for his books so you’ll have to keep an eye out for his posts. As for me, I’m thinking of using one of the Hop On, Hop Off Tour Buses you find in Times Square (I hate Times Square. Most New Yorkers do) I don’t have anything else to tell but when it gets closer, I’ll have more info.

My next release is The Coincidence and you can join my Reader Group, Felice’s Fun-House to find out more about that book. Just saying, it is the absolute, hands down favorite of all my books I’ve written. A book of the heart.

Happy Reading!!!

His Uptown Guy is on Kindle Unlimited for the first ninety day of release.

          写稿佬讲古:动作天尊四十年 卡普空简史上篇      Cache   Translate Page      


  正所谓“人红是非多”,游戏史上具有争议性的大型企业不在少数,诸如“在 BUG 里面加游戏”的育碧、“IP 杀手” EA,好吧,这些都是我写过的企业。对于前后有着近四十年历史的卡普空,人们的评价大抵离不开“动作天尊”、“米其林冷饭大厨”和“卡婊”这些词汇。

  然而,这些词汇更多是对进入 21 世纪以来的卡普空表现的总结。在卡普空成立最初的二十年时光里,从周边加工到摸索入门、从街机巅峰、再到盛世“危机”,这段由游戏人和游戏组成的历史,我们又应该用怎样的词汇来描述呢?在本期“讲古”中,我们或许能找到答案。



  1978 年,街机游戏《太空侵略者》引发了人们涌进游戏厅消费的热潮,以此作为标志,日本街机行业进入了一个黄金年代,越来越多厂商开始以各种形式投身其中。

  常言道“莫道君行早,更有早来人。”IREM 的老板辻本宪三早就看到了这个商机。在他操持下,这个原名 IPM,目标群体是为夫妻小店(日剧和影片中常见的那种门口放着几台小型游戏机的杂货铺)安装游戏机的公司,在 1977 年开始从事街机台及周边配件的生产和销售。


  1979 年,辻本宪三又在大阪松原市成立了游戏相关企业 I.R.M. Corporation,这是卡普空官网上记录的公司起点,但并不是他们游戏设计的原点,此时 I.R.M. 的主要业务同样是制作和销售街机的相关硬件。

  两年之后,辻本宪三在 I.R.M. 旗下成立了子公司 CAPSULE COMPUTER(胶囊电脑),那时“Entertainment(娱乐)”这个概念尚未在日本普及,“电脑”则是时髦的玩意,所以当时很多企业都想蹭上这个热点;至于“胶囊”的含义,卡普空官网解释为“一个欢乐的容器”和“通过制作规格安全的游戏,减少盗版游戏的扩张”。随后,辻本宪三又将 I.R.M. 名称改为 SANBI,这些都不是闲笔。

  SANBI 的成长,让辻本宪三在工作上难免分心,也难免和 IREM 其他高层产生利益矛盾。最终他只能以不太体面的方式离开了 IREM,转而全力推动“CAPSULE COMPUTER”的发展。

  此后,辻本宪三做出的第一个重要决定,是从公司名字“CAPSULE COMPUTER”中两个英文单词里分别取前三个字母“CAP”和“COM”,组成了新公司的名称 —— CAPCOM,也就是今天大家熟悉的卡普空前身。在卡普空的中文官网上,也将这一事件列为了公司时间的起点。官方对于这个名字的注解是“创造一种新的、超越个人电脑的游戏体验”。

  不过,卡普空的第一个容器还不是我们熟悉的电子游戏。卡普空自行研发的第一台游戏设备,投币式游戏机《Little League》,并非我们如今常见的使用电子显示屏的街机,而是通过闪烁的指示灯来反馈信息的传统街机游戏。同年,他们又推出了另一部玩法类似水果机的机台《Fever Chance》。这些产品没能为公司带来长足的发展。


  对于大洋彼岸的日本游戏产业而言,这是一场危机也是一次机遇:人们对于游戏的评价和积极性有所减退,一些和北美市场有着深入联系的日本厂商深受其害,比如 70 年代末就已经开始向美国出口投币游戏机的科乐美就是其中受害者。大崩溃的危机之下,这些日本企业也不得不大量裁员,许多有才华的员工失去了工作,这些员工随后被许多以日本游戏市场为根据地、受大崩溃牵连不那么明显的厂商所吸纳,或者说是被淘宝捡漏。




  上世纪 80 年代初期,由《太空侵略者》和《小蜜蜂》系列引发的热潮已经过去,南梦宫的《铁板阵》以其灵活的四向移动、沉浸感倍增的纵向卷轴、丰富且带有“层次感”的背景,引领了当时射击游戏的新风潮,游戏的流行甚至上升到了日本文化层面。这种现象自然吸引了不少当时的厂商跟风仿效。对于在游戏市场尚无建树的卡普空而言,模仿也是一个行之有效的选择。

  1984 年,藤原得郎设计的卡普空第一部街机游戏《Vulgus》面世。“Vulgus”是拉丁文,意思是“权利低下的普通人”。游戏有着浓厚的《铁板阵》风格,玩家需要驾驶宇宙飞船在行星和太空中穿梭并击退外星敌人,可惜游戏缺乏《铁板阵》那样的空对地打击的层次感,未能一鸣惊人。


《little League》《Vulgus》是卡普空两个“第一次”,后者在北美由卡普空的老对手SNK发行



  《1942》将游戏背景设定在第二次世界大战的中途岛战役,玩家驾驶美军空军“皇牌” —— 洛克·希德 P-38“闪电”战斗机,从太平洋一路杀到东京,将日本军迷心目中拥有极高地位的“零式战机”、“飞燕战机”和“连山重轰炸机”通通打爆。结果,开“美帝”飞机打日本人,这个设定在当时的日本社会引起了强烈反响,争议之声反而吸引了不少年轻人,他们很快开始沉迷于游戏优良的射击体验中无法自拔。




  《魔界村》获得了当年街机“金摇杆奖”的亚军,后来推出的 FC 移植版更是获得了 126 万份的惊人销量,奠定了这款游戏在历史上的地位。


  《魔界村》和《1942》让卡普空在日本游戏市场上站稳了脚跟,此后,冈本吉起和藤原得郎开始更加积极地开拓卷轴清版游戏的各种可行性,“RUN & GUN”游戏《荒野大镖客(Gun Smoke)》和《战场之狼(Commando)》,便是他们两人在这一游戏类型中各自交出的答卷。

  《荒野大镖客》原本是指 1964 年的美国西部片《A Fistful of Dollars》,在传入中国时,“西部牛仔”这一形象被与中国古代的“镖客”划上了约等号,故而有了后来“荒野大镖客”这个颇具东方韵味的译名。多年以后的《Gun Smoke》再次将狂野西部的神韵呈现在玩家面前:漫漫黄沙中的小镇、道路两旁林立的酒馆、不时探头的西部枪手、伴随着金钱和欲望的战斗……

  在信息不发达的年代,这样的游戏很容易会被与电影联系起来。顺便一提,这两部作品都和 R 星去年获奖无数的“《荒野大镖客》系列”无甚直接关系。至于《Commando》,由施瓦辛格主演的同名电影在游戏发售后五个月上映,银幕硬汉单枪匹马杀入敌人阵地,各种枪战场景和游戏内核异曲同工,也相得益彰。


  不难发现,无论是《1942》还是《荒野大镖客》,卡普空早期的游戏都带有一些美国英雄主义倾向,这种向“美国爸爸”示好的行为其实不难理解。1985 年,北美游戏市场开始从低谷中慢慢复苏,市场的空虚让卡普空看到机会,他们在美国加州成立了卡普空美国分公司,主营 PC 游戏的发行业务。


  上世纪 80 年代,任天堂在家用游戏机市场迅速冒起,使得卡普空开始将目光投向这个努力追赶街机的“新兴”(对于日本市场而言)产业。《1942》、《魔界村》和《战场之狼》在 1985 年末开始先后移植到 FC 平台,FC 也成为了之后卡普空家用机游戏的一个重要阵地,也是当时很多厂商的选择。



  在藤原得郎和冈本吉起崛起之后,卡普空还在 1985 年收获了两位重要的人才:西山隆志和稻船敬二。

  西山隆志在 1982 年就进入 IREM 成为游戏设计师,在 1984 年发售的《Kung-Fu Master 》(国内译作“成龙踢馆”)中,就已经展露出不错的实力。尽管西山隆志在 1985 年加入卡普空后只待了两三年,又被 SNK 高薪挖走,但在这短短的两三年间,他就开创了两个至今仍让卡普空受益匪浅的游戏系列。


  彼时,当卡普空将目光投向家用机市场,西山隆志成为了公司第三个开发室的负责人,他和北村玲领导着这个只有六个人的团队开始了《洛克人》的开发工作。万能小子(Mighty Kid)、拳击小子(Knuckle Kid)、彩虹人(Rainbow Man)都曾经是制作团队备选的方案,尤其是“彩虹人”,他可以根据所选择的武器变换成七种颜色,一度是热门的人选,但这个方案最终因为种种原因而被抛弃。

  设计团队决定为游戏配上一个音乐主题并且加入动画化元素,“Rock and Roll”兄妹由此而生 —— 哥哥“洛克人(Rock Man)”是一个可以从手腕中伸出光枪的机器人,这个灵感是从“铁臂阿童木”以及“石头剪刀布”而来,他的名字也很有美漫风格,由此也影响了整个系列的命名方式。

  不过,有传闻说由于“Rock”在美国是一种毒品的名称,据说卡普空为了避嫌,在美版游戏中将主角的名字改成了“Mega Man”。洛克人的妹妹“萝尔(Roll)”是个心地善良的小女孩,她实际出场的频率并不高,设计团队也曾经想过做出“英雄救妹”的老套情节,或是在游戏最后来一场“你妹变 BOSS”的战斗,最终都没有实现。

  在制作团队中,北村玲既是监督又是美工,但主要的美术设计定稿和收尾都是当时只有二十岁出头的稻船敬二担任,连主角洛克人的最终定稿也是出自他的手笔。在完成主要角色设计之后,稻船敬二还得给游戏制作像素形象,由于 FC 的机能限制,他只能以调色板中色度最广的蓝色来作为洛克人的主题色调,以此来展现出更多的细节变化。

  稻船敬二经常被坊间误传为是“洛克人之父”,这种说法在某种意义上也不是全错,但稻船敬二坚称自己只是做了一半的工作,因为在他加入项目之初,北村玲和西山隆志已经设计出许多基本角色,圣诞老人和爱因斯坦已经成为了两位博士的原型,Cut Man, Ice Man, Fire Man 和 Guts Man的设计也在进行中。当时稻船敬二的工作包括设计“Elec Man”在内的其他角色,将角色最终定稿并处理后续工作。


  这款被玩家们习惯称为“元祖洛克人”的游戏,因为将平台跳跃和射击元素很好地结合,当时获得了不错的口碑和销量,使得原本对其销量预计相当保守的卡普空决定迅速推出美版。但是仓促的改编使得游戏从封面到内容未能让人满意,封面上那个“Bad Box Art Mega Man”甚至成了卡普空日常自黑的形象。

  无论如何,《元祖洛克人》在卡普空原创家用机游戏的早期取得了不错的成绩,促使卡普空继续开发续作,也成就了后来的稻船敬二。“《洛克人》系列”成为了 2D 横版射击游戏的代表,在此之后除了 1989 年外,卡普空每年都会推出相关作品,并衍生出不同的系列,这一传统一直延续到 2010 年,至于结果则见仁见智。



  在“Beat’em up”类游戏《必杀!无赖拳》中有过合作的西山隆志和松本博司,在他们的新作中讲述了一个武道家“隆”环游世界不断挑战各地高手,证明自己武功的故事。这款游戏便是名震江湖的《街头霸王》,主角的名字“隆”也恰好就是“西山隆志”名字中的“隆”。


  此外,受到《宇宙战舰大和号》中“大和号”所发出的“波动炮”的启发,西山隆志给隆配上了一种标志性的“飞行道具” —— 波动拳,再加上旋风腿和对空技升龙拳,大家最熟悉的绝技也具备了雏形。





  前面我们说到《洛克人》中的“摇滚”和音乐元素,事实上,摇滚对于卡普空游戏的影响远不止于此。在《洛克人2》中,根据场景的变化,8 位的电子音效被卡普空的作曲家们推到了一个新高度。对于正在开发新作的冈本吉起的团队而言,摇滚的意义同样重要,团队中不少开发人员是 1984 年的好莱坞电影《狠将奇兵》的影迷,这部爆米花电影讲述的是摇滚女歌手被飞车党绑架,她的前男友科迪英雄救美的故事。故事虽然老套,但在强劲的摇滚乐烘托下,一场场火爆而激情的街头战斗不断上映,让平庸的故事有了不同的观看体验。

  在冈本吉起的操持下,这款游戏的剧情变成了黑帮组织“Mad Gear Gang”在罪恶之都 Metro 中横行霸道,甚至绑架了市长麦克的女儿,麦克请来了本领高强的凯以及女儿的男友科迪(和电影主角同名),一同穿梭在城市的各个地区,为了救回爱女与敌人展开殊死战斗。

  许多当年的摇滚明星和组合,比如 Axl Rose,Slash,Gene Simmons,Sid Vicious,Billy Idol,“Abigail” King Diamond,Roxy Music 和 Poison(毒药)纷纷在这款游戏中化身成反派,挡在了三人组的面前。不过制作团队认为在游戏中打女人是一件十分糟糕的事情,所以他们特意在游戏说明书上强调“女性角色”毒药其实是一个变性人,也成为了当时让人津津乐道的花絮之一。


  1987 年《双截龙II:复仇》采用的街头格斗风格,与《狠将奇兵》电影中的各个火拼之地相互结合,是冈本吉起开发这款游戏时灵感的重要来源,可以说是名副其实的“街头霸王”风格。实际上这款游戏最初确实是以《街头霸王89》的名义出现在各种展览上,之后卡普空收到不少反馈声音,认为游戏与“街头霸王”截然不同,最后冈本吉起只好将游戏更名为《Final Fight》,也就是老一代玩家熟悉的《快打旋风》。


  也是在 1989 年,之前一直开发街机游戏的藤原得郎首次涉足家用机游戏开发,他的首部作品《糖果屋》改编自当年同名的恐怖电影。从销量和口碑上来看,《糖果屋》游戏比电影更好,但也不至于能够发展成一个大 IP,不过之后的一段阴差阳错,反而成就了一个传奇系列的诞生,或许才是这个 1989 年的作品对卡普空的最大贡献。

  当然,对于卡普空而言,1989 年最大的事件莫过于年初的时候,辻本宪三将 SANBI 和卡普空正式合拼,组成如今我们所认知的这个卡普空,这件事距今正好三十年。而此前的故事,我们不妨将这十年定义为“前”卡普空时代。


  1990-1999,巅峰与危机。此阶段初登场的代表作或系列包括:《名将》、《吞食天地II 赤壁之战》、《圆桌骑士》、《恐龙快打》、《街头霸王II》、《生化危机》。

  经过十年的发展,辻本宪三操持下的卡普空已经成功跻身一流游戏企业行列。在新一个十年中,他们进入了迅猛发展的阶段。1990 年卡普空在东京联交所登记为“场外交易股票”,“动作天尊”在商业领域迈出了一只脚,而代表着游戏艺术领域的另一只脚很快就跟了上来。


  《街头霸王2》中玩家可操控的角色不再局限于“隆”和“肯”,春丽、古烈、桑吉夫、本田等多位风格迥异的经典角色也在游戏中登场,每个角色不仅有着当时看来相当华丽的必杀技,还有着极具个人和地域风情的主场场景设计,游戏的副标题“天下斗士”(World Warrior)可谓名副其实。


  当玩家完成一定的关数的挑战后,“影罗四天王” —— “将军”、“拳王”、“独眼龙”和“假面” —— 就会轮番上阵,成为玩家的最终对手。在这里之所以不用如今他们的官方名字,维加、拜森、沙加特和巴洛克来称呼,是因为当时“拜森”的形象和美国拳王泰森十分相像,为了避免引起法律纠纷,卡普空在《街头霸王2》国际版中将四大天王的名字来了个“乱点鸳鸯”。

  1991 年 3 月,《街头霸王2》正式面世,掀起了一场席卷全球的格斗风暴。这使得卡普空必须采用不断修补的方式来维持游戏的热度并应对层出不穷的盗版。

  从 1992 年开始,卡普空一共推出了数个版本的更新,在《街头霸王2:四大天王》中,玩家终于可以使用那四个曾经给他们带来极大麻烦的 BOSS 角色,而当两个玩家在选择相同角色时,还会有两套不同颜色皮肤。在此之后的“究极格斗”版本中,在提升游戏速度之余,角色还追加了各种新的必杀技。

  随着卡普空新一代机板“CPS-II”在 1993 年面世,带来了更好的硬件性能,《街头霸王2》也迎来了新版本《超级街头霸王2:新挑战者》,新增四位新角色,在在画面和声效上迎来完整的大修,体验更上一层楼。

  到了 1994 年的《超级街头霸王2:Turbo》,超必杀和连招的设计已经变得十分纯熟,超强隐藏 BOSS“豪鬼”也在本作中登场。本作也成为了首届“Battle by the Bay”(EVO 大赛前身)的官方比赛游戏,而早在 1993 年,卡普空就在东京两国国技馆举办了《街头霸王2 Turbo Championship》,更是成为了格斗游戏进军电子竞技领域的其中一个先驱。


  伴随版本的更新和各种衍生品的兴起,“《街头霸王2》系列”形成的游戏文化,开始在全球范围内凝聚成庞大游戏玩家群体。据某项调查所说,到 1994 年,单是在美国本土已经有超过 2500 万人次玩过了《街头霸王2》,而在国内的街头巷尾,“哈多肯”、“阿力古”、“达啲”的声音也借助小机房里高亢的音响传入无数人的脑海里,再从口中、打闹中,以及动画和真人电影中,编织出我们的童年。“《街头霸王》系列”还在 90 年代发展出“Alpha”和“EX”,在新兴的“《拳皇》系列”的冲击下依旧屹立于 2D 格斗游戏的巅峰。

  巅峰的地位自然也有巅峰的收入。《街头霸王2》登陆任天堂 SFC 平台后,最初两周就已经在日本卖出了 200 万份,经历了数个版本的更新,最终全球销量超过 1400 万份。尽管这已经是相当惊人的成绩,但与游戏街机部分的收入相比也还是相形见绌。

  根据 GameRevolution 统计的数字,将通胀计算在内后,直到 2019 年一月,《街头霸王2》所创造的总收入已经超过 106 亿美元,其中五分之三的收入来自街机。这个成绩让《街头霸王2》成为了继《太空侵略者》和《吃豆人》之后,电子游戏史上最卖座的三款作品之一。“《街头霸王2》系列”也因此成为了卡普空当仁不让的“门面”,让卡普空在动作游戏领域名声越来越响亮。


  当马力欧作为吉祥物为任天堂注入文化元素的时候,卡普空也在试图打造自己的形象代言。老玩家或许还记得,在 80 年代后期卡普空的诸多家用机游戏作品中,附带的说明手册里面都会有一个手持激光枪,领口上有个明显“C”字徽章的近未来科幻风格英雄形象,留言祝贺玩家买到了一款“好游戏”。这个角色名叫“Captain Commando”,这些游戏也被称为“Captain Commando 挑战计划”的一部分。

  虽然这个角色和早年的《战场之狼》没有关系,但只要将“Captain Commando”两个单词各自的前三个英文字母组合,同样会形成“Capcom”这个名字,这足以证明他在卡普空的地位。

  到了 1991 年,“Captain Commando”也终于有了以自己名字命名的街机游戏,这款游戏有一个在国内流传甚广的名字 —— 《名将》。这款游戏延续了卡普空《快打旋风》的玩法和模式,八方向摇杆和跳跃、攻击键组合成多种攻击方式让战斗颇为好看,坐骑系统的引入进一步提升了游戏的可玩性,在特制的街机台上甚至能支持四名玩家并排联机闯关。

  尽管“Captain Commando”未能如马力欧或是索尼克那样大红大紫,但是在卡普空的一些游戏中,他还是会作为形象代表出现。更重要的是,以《名将》为开端,卡普空著名的“街机四天王”也在此后相继登场。


  在《名将》面世的两个月后,卡普空推出了《圆桌骑士》,游戏在国内也被称作《圆桌武士》或简称《圆桌》。《圆桌骑士》用游戏的方式讲述了英国最著名的亚瑟王传说:亚瑟王拔出石中剑,与他的两个最亲密的伙伴 —— 兰斯洛特和珀西瓦尔,联手推翻邪恶的加里波第国王并统一英国的故事。


  1992 年,卡普空推出了 CP System Dash 的过渡性机板,在 CPS-1 的基础上加以强化,又添加了一年后面世的 CPS-II 机板的部分功能。尽管是过渡性机板,但并不妨碍经典街机游戏在这款产品上面世。

  1989 年卡普空曾推出过一款名为《吞食天地》的游戏,以中国古典名著《三国演义》中“黄巾之乱”作为故事背景,但因为各种原因游戏未能获得成功。在 CP System Dash 上,续作《吞食天地2 赤壁之战》有了长足的突破,热爱三国文化的日本人在 90 年代初期对这段富有传奇色彩的历史进行过大量游戏改编。在本作中,蜀国的五员大将拥有各自的招式和风格,敌人的类别和数量都有所增加,游戏的打击感和音效也可圈可点。由于改编自中国古典作品,这款游戏当年在国内街机厅也有着相当高的流行度。

  同样以 CP System Dash 为载体,卡普空还制作了改编自美国漫画《Xenozoic Tales》的《恐龙新世纪》(国内译为《恐龙快打》),由漫威经典“反英雄”漫画《惩罚者》改编的同名游戏。两者都大大深化了弹药概念和道具元素,除了武器,各种箱子都可以变成投掷物;相较之下,《恐龙新世纪》由于各种 BUG 玩法而颇受玩家追捧,《惩罚者》则是以良好的打击感和精细的画面被,曾被誉为“有史以来最伟大的侧滚屏格斗游戏”和“自《真人快打》以来最血腥的动作游戏”。

  一系列街机动作游戏的成功,不仅让卡普空在日本游戏行业的声望达到了顶峰,也在经济上带来了巨大的效益。1993 年卡普空股票在大阪证券交易所顺利挂牌,更多资金的涌入,让卡普空得以在实业方面大战拳脚。

  在 1993 到 1995 年间,卡普空大兴土木,在日本新泻县开设了全县最大型的街机游乐场“CapcoCircus Nigata East”。1994 年又在大阪中央区建起了如今我们见到的卡普空总部大楼,并在东京上野建立了分公司。也是在这个时期,卡普空开始在香港设立分公司,向中国以及东南亚地区发行游戏。为了加强和最大限度地发挥对美国的管理、分销和研发等职能,卡普空又在美国分部之下建立了卡普空娱乐和卡普空数字工作室(也就是如今的卡普空第 8 开发室)。公司的经营重心,也在悄悄发生转移。


  还记得我们最初提到的《糖果屋》吗?经历了四年的沉淀之后,当次世代主机和游戏 3D 时代到来,《糖果屋》的制作人藤原得郎希望以新的方式来实现当初未尽的心愿。



  在项目开发之初,三上真司从大量西方恐怖电影中获得了不小的启发:《闪灵》中的“ The Overlook Hotel”给予了他许多正面的灵感;而负面的感觉如对卢西奥·富尔奇(Lucio Fulci)执导的血腥电影《僵尸》带来的失望之情,让他决心要创造一款没有任何该电影所存在缺陷的游戏。

  由于项目还没完全定型,三上真司在开发之初几乎是独自耕耘着这款游戏的雏形:画概念草图,设计角色,编写了超过 40 页的脚本。其中最重要的一点是,“希望能够让玩家根据自己的选择玩到属于自己的线性”。在这个过程里,藤原得郎不时提出相应指导并做出最后决定。

  随着项目开始成型,一些技术人员也开始加入团队,对于新主机性能的不熟悉让他们走了不少弯路。最初,他们打算在游戏中使用灵活的视角,当中的射击场景更接近 FPS 游戏的感觉。但是经历近一年的尝试之后,开发团队不得不放弃这个计划,而就在这个取舍过程之中,却意外形成了一种特别的风格 —— 电影化的固定镜头。游戏也因此逐渐有了雏形。


  但当卡普空美国分部的市场人员将游戏带到北美的时候,却发现有一款 DOS 游戏已经抢注了《糖果屋》的商标。迫不得已,在美国分部的建议下团队选择了“Resident Evil”这个名字。但卡普空的“危机”还远不止于此。


  在经历了 1993 到 1994 年的疯狂发展后,卡普空迎来了前所未有的挑战:世嘉引领的街机游戏 3D 化时代到来,以 SNK 为代表的格斗游戏兴起,卡普空在街机市场的份额被大大压缩。另一方面,尽管任天堂因为和雅达利的版权官司而放松了对权利金的控制,但并不意味着他们会放弃这块保证利润的“肥肉”。

  对于那些像卡普空这样和任天堂紧密联系的企业,一旦出现滞销,损失的便是高昂的卡带权利金以及连绵不断的仓储费用。1995年的卡普空面临的正是这样的窘况,这促使卡普空向新的游戏载体和平台转型。面向 PS 平台的《生化危机》逐渐受到了大家的重视。然而,随着卡普空的危机加剧,藤原得郎因为种种原因而离开了卡普空,这使得《生化危机》项目陷入风雨飘摇。


  充裕的时间和上级的信任,令三上真司得以将自己平时积累的创意慢慢融入项目之中,最终形成了在预渲染背景的电影视角下、带有乔治·罗梅罗丧尸电影风格的视觉效果。《生化危机》拥有丰富的收集、解谜、射击和冒险元素,玩家不仅要揭开浣熊市危机背后的真相,更重要的是 —— 活下去!

  不少玩家通过《生化危机》认识到一个新的游戏类型 ——“生存恐怖游戏”,可以说正是《生化危机》将这一游戏类型引领至黄金时代。不过,1992 年发售的《鬼屋魔影》依然被普遍认为是“生存恐怖游戏”的始祖,三上真司也承认他们在看到《鬼屋魔影》之后就发现前者的元素正是自己想要的,而这也成为了《生化危机》重要参考素材。


  1996 年 3 月,《生化危机》面世,有《鬼屋魔影》这样的珠玉在前,加上当时已经有不少恐怖题材游戏活跃于市场,以至于包括三上真司在内的整个开发团队都认为《生化危机》很难成为一个系列产品,游戏在日本开卖之初也呈现这一趋势。

  然而随着游戏登陆北美和英国,局势开始发生变化,游戏销量很快突破百万大关。卡普空趁热打铁,推出了名为“导演剪辑版”的更新版本,使得《生化危机》初代的总销量超过 500 万份,不仅成为了当时 PS 销量最高游戏,更成为了惨淡经营的卡普空在 1996 年到 1997 年的重要利润来源。

  从“《街头霸王》系列”中熟谙“乘势之道”的卡普空抓住了《生化危机》这棵救命稻草,自然不会放过扩大IP影响力的机会。经历了《生化危机1.5》的蹉跎,《生化危机2》终于在 1998 年面世,不仅登陆三大平台,还刷新了北美地区首发销量最快游戏的纪录,延续了“生化危机热潮”。

  此后,从 1998 年到 2005 年的八年间,每年都有一到两款“《生化危机》系列”作品问世,这个系列从最初的“救命稻草”茁壮成长为卡普空的“摇钱树”,但卡普空一些日后为人所诟病的“陋习”,也由此开始逐渐浮出水面。

I am cooking a pot right now. I made some variations due to my cupboards and tastes (dislike cumin). I didn't have any jalapeños, so I used about a quarter cup of chili paste with garlic (my family LOVES spicy foods), a half bulb of garlic, a large minced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, a dash of liquid smoke, a can of tomatoes and green chilies, and a couple tablespoons of red wine vinegar to breakdown the enzymes that cause gas. :-) As this is essentially the same ingredients I use to "Doctor" canned beans when in a pinch, I am excited to see how slow cooking them will be. Once they have been cooking for an hour, I'll add salt to taste. Now for the long wait!

          Stop that train: R.I.P Albert Finney by Dennis Hartley @denofcinema5      Cache   Translate Page      
Saturday Night at the Movies ... and Sunday Morning

Stop that train: R.I.P. Albert Finney

By Dennis Hartley

Albert Finney died yesterday, and more people should have cared. I almost missed it myself, which is odd considering how much time I fritter and waste in an offhand way online these days. It didn’t even trend on Twitter, for fuck’s sake. No, I learned of his passing the old-fashioned way: a perfunctory mention on a nightly network TV newscast.

A file photo of Finney popped up (rarely a good sign), and the blow-dried anchor mustered all the teleprompter-fed solemnity extant in his soul to sadly inform me that “the actor who played Daddy Warbucks in the movie version of Annie has died” before moving on to “a video you have got to see”. The actor who played Daddy Warbucks in the film version of Annie? Really? That’s all you got? I wouldn’t call that his most memorable performance; I wouldn’t even consider Annie to be a particularly good movie.

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre-trained Finney’s film career spanned over 50 years, and in the course of that time he proved over and over that he had chops to spare for both drama and comedy. Innately charismatic onscreen, he could effortlessly hold your attention as the dashing leading man, or just as easily embed himself into a character role.

Finney never strayed too far from his working-class roots in his off-screen demeanor. He shunned interviews and the trappings of stardom; he was all about the work. He declined the offer of a CBE (as well as a knighthood) and once compared an actor’s job to that of a bricklayer. So let’s get to work here, shall we? My picks for Finney’s top 10 film roles…

The Dresser- Peter Yates directed this tale of a fiercely devoted “dresser” (Tom Courtenay) who tends to the mercurial lead player (Finney) of a traveling company’s production of King Lear. The story is set against the backdrop of London during the blitz, but it’s a tossup as to who is producing more Sturm and Drang…the German bombers, the raging king, or the backstage terror who portrays him and is to be addressed by all as “Sir”. Courtenay and Finney deliver brilliant performances. Ronald Harwood adapted the script from his own play. In the most memorable scene, Sir literally halts a locomotive in its tracks at a noisy railway station with his commanding bellow to “STOP. That. Train!”

Gumshoe- This relatively obscure U.K. gem from 1971 was produced by Finney and marked the feature film directing debut for Stephen Frears (My Beautiful Laundrette, Prick Up Your Ears, The Grifters, High Fidelity, et. al.). Finney is wonderful as an emcee who works in a seedy Liverpool nightclub and models himself after Philip Marlowe. He decides to indulge his long-time fantasy of becoming a private detective by placing a newspaper ad offering his services-and gets more than he bargains for with his first “case. Screenwriter Neville Smith’s clever dialog is infused with just enough shadings of Chandler and Hammet to deflect suspicion of plagiarism (and Finney thankfully doesn’t overdo his Bogey impression-which isn’t half-bad). Nice supporting turn from Billie Whitelaw, and Frears’ use of the gritty Liverpool milieu lends an appropriate “noir” vibe.

Miller’s Crossing- This 1990 gangster flick could only come from the unique mind-meld of Joel and Ethan Coen. Finney is excellent as an Irish mob boss engaging in a power struggle with the local Italian mob during the Prohibition era. Gabriel Byrne (who is the central character of the film) portrays his advisor, who attempts to broker peace by playing both sides against the middle. This form of diplomacy does carry a certain degree of personal risk (don’t try this at home). You do have to pay attention in order to keep up with the constantly shifting alliances and betrayals and such; but as with most Coen Brothers movies, if you lose track of the narrative you always have plenty of twisty performances, stylish flourishes, and mordant humor to chew on until you catch up again.

Orphans- There is sometimes a fine line between “intense drama” and “overcooked ham”, and while I will admit that this 1987 Alan J. Pakula adaptation of Lyle Kessler’s stage play toddles dangerously close to that line, it is still well worth your time. Matthew Modine and Kevin Anderson are two fringe-dwelling brothers who live on their own in a decrepit house. Finney is a low-rent Chicago gangster who gets blotto at a New Jersey bar, and upon waking up discovers he’s been “kidnapped” by Modine, who has a hold over his brother reminiscent of the dynamic between the sisters in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? The story becomes even stranger when Finney decides then and there to move in with and impose himself as a father figure. It’s “stagey”, but the acting is superb.

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning- This 1960 Karel Reisz drama gave the 24-year-old Finney his first major starring role and is one of the seminal entries of the “British New Wave” film movement. Finney delivers an explosive Brando-esque performance as a womanizing young man stuck in a dreary factory job. Allen Sillitoe adapted the screenplay from his own novel. A gritty slice of life steeped in “kitchen sink” realism.

Shoot the Moon- Be forewarned: Alan Parker’s 1982 drama about the deterioration of a marriage pulls no punches (it is right out as a “date night” movie). Finney co-stars with Diane Keaton as a couple with four kids whose marriage is about to go kaput. As in Kramer vs. Kramer, the film essentially opens with the split, and then focuses on the immediate emotional aftershocks and its profound impact on all family members. Absolutely heartbreaking, but beautifully acted by a skilled cast that includes Karen Allen, Peter Weller, and Dana Hill. Bo Goldman scripted, and Michael Seresin’s cinematography is lovely (the Marin County environs almost becomes a character itself).

Tom Jones- The film that made Finney an international star, Tony Richardson’s 1963 romantic comedy-drama is based on the Henry Fielding novel about the eponymous character’s amorous exploits in 18th-Century England. Tom (Finney) is raised as the bastard son of a prosperous squire. He is a bit on the rakish side, but wholly lovable and possesses a good heart. It’s the “lovable” part that gets him in trouble time and again, and fate and circumstance put young Tom on the road, where various duplicitous parties await to prey upon his naivety. Will he triumph? Of course, he will…the entertainment lies in how he gets there. John Osborne adapted the Oscar-winning script; the film also won for Best Picture, Director, and Music Score (Finney was nominated for Best Actor).

Two For the Road- Director Stanley Donen’s 1967 romantic comedy is a cinematic soufflé; folding in a sophisticated script by Frederick Raphael, a generous helping of Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn, a dash of colorful European locales, and topping it with a cherry of a score by Henry Mancini. Donen follows the travails of a married couple over the years of their relationship, by constructing a series of non-linear flashbacks and flash-forwards (a structural device that has been utilized since by other filmmakers, but rarely as effectively). While there are a lot of laughs, Two For the Road is, at its heart, a thoughtful meditation on the nature of love and true commitment. Finney and Hepburn (both at the peak of their sex appeal) exude an electric on-screen chemistry.

Under the Volcano- John Huston’s masterful 1984 adaptation of Michael Lowry’s novel stars Finney as a self-destructive British consul stationed in Mexico on the eve of WW2. The story tracks the consul on the last day of his life, as it unfolds during Dia de los Muertas celebrations (the irony is strong in this tale). Very dark and steeped in dread. Superb performances all round from a cast that includes Jacqueline Bisset, Anthony Andrews and Katy Jurado. Guy Gallo wrote the script. My favorite Finney performance.

Wolfen- This 1981 supernatural thriller from director Michael Wadleigh generated mixed reviews, but I think it has held up rather well. Sort of a thinking person’s horror film, it follows a NYPD homicide detective (Finney) and his partner (Gregory Hines) as they investigate a series of grisly murders. The victim’s wounds are disturbingly reminiscent of some sort of wild animal attack. Add elements of ancient Native American legends regarding “shapeshifters” and things get…interesting. Granted, some of the early 80s visual effects haven’t aged well, but this is a smart, absorbing, genuinely creepy chiller.

Stephjones, I was thinking about your script that you provided a link for on Saturday, and I think I came up with a way you can improve your script and bring the readers into your story and identify better with your two leads: Isadadore and Elsa. Going off inspiration I think I'll just lay it out for you: Open with the your leads driving in the convertible. Have Elsa nab the water moccasin, then have Isadore and Elsa look at each other and laugh. A "<b>Thelma and Louise"</b> moment. Next have a jaunt back through time as both girls take turns describing how they got to this place. Start with their kindergarten years where they were catching frogs screaming and giggling. Then have one of the girls getting her first kiss in grade school -- only to get that moment broken up by the other girl, which results in a shaking of the head and more giggling. Now in junior high or high school, while in chemistry class with bunson burners and shit, the two girls coax a boy who has a "thing" for them to drink the contents in a veil, which turns the boys teeth black or something like that. Finally, at a school dance one of the girls is about to get kissed by a teenage boy, only to have the Caddallac roll up and the other girl hold up a snake and waver her over. That girl chooses adventure over the boy, and joins her sister in the car. What something like this would do is set-up a key dynamic: these two girls prefer science and the outdoors over boys, and have history behind them screwing with guys who are interested in them sexually. It also sets up the question: will these two girls always be this way choosing their own camaraderie over love. So that's that. E.C.'s NEW TAKE on what you've got: A cajun <b>"Thelma and Louise"</b> mixed in with a dash of <b>"Weird Science"</b> and <b>"Porky's"</b>.

I show and tell my husband each and every day how much I love him and value him, and I certainly don't relish occasions that make people feel compelled to dash off to the store to purchase things that aren't really needed, such as overpriced roses and treats, or spend an excess of money at expensive and crowded restaurants. My husband is very fortunate to get special meals and treats on a regular basis as part of my food blogging project and just because I like to provide good nourishing meals.

          Review: A Spoiled Victory: Dunkirk 1940:: Some thoughts about what the game is, and what it sometimes seems it is      Cache   Translate Page      


This is an excellent game. It is both an accurate simulation and a very much a puzzle for the player, especially if one casts it alongside 'State of Siege' games—very fine products in their own right, but quite different (many are about campaigns not a single confined battle)—and tries to compose an optimal strategy. At Dunkirk, as memoirs and many analyses make clear, everything had to fall into place for the miracle to be made. A good deal of the brilliance of the design is that there is likely no ideal approach so much as a flexible response to events that one hopes will work at the end of the day.

If there is a glitch, it’s in the lack of clarity about which side one is really playing. If this as much an escape game as a war-game, as the designer concedes, it is not always apparent if one is the prisoner trying to dash across the water or the warden trying to prevent the getaway. Despite the fact that the system demands you to make decisions as the British, much of what occurs in the game is aimed at the Germans. The game assumes that the decision has already been made to evacuate; that the Battle for France is over (and as Winston Churchill intoned, “the Battle for Britain is about to begin”); and that victory or defeat is driven by how many people you can get to the shoreline and then off the beaches. There is no allowance for the possibility of making a stand and then a breakout against German forces bearing down: the battle is lost, and continuing the war rests on fleeing instead of fighting. It’s a Management Evacuation game as much as a military simulation.

Because of that focus, the game is a set of decisions that are tradeoffs, and very much dependent on the choices made and reacting to the card draw and distribution. It’s very impressive that the designer provided a set of interesting optional rules; that is, the ability to stiff-arm or even subvert the cards one draws, to make sure that the player, not the cards, bear the vast bulk of responsibility for what happens—something that seems to be rare in many recent solitaire games, where one fastens the seat-belt and rides along instead of being belted across the mouth for roads chosen or not taken. Decisions in this design matter. This is a simulation that feels very much like a scramble, making choices and then making do when events overtake.

At the same time, because so much is about what the Germans do and how you as the Allied player react, there is a curious mix of waiting to see where the German pressure is going to come, and then responding to it. But many memoirs and various analyses depict the British as hell-bent on preparing to get out many days ahead of the actual evacuation. Those accounts make it seem that by the time the simulation starts, it’s the German side that’s reacting, not the Allies. Wermacht commanders and the Luftwaffe are wondering what Hitler is going to do, if the main battle is yet to be fought once the British leave, and what to do about logistical lines that are getting rather long and supplies that are starting to get short. So at points one is really playing both sides--the Germans, waiting for cards, and the Allies, wondering what sort of a situation that the turn produces. It's not at all clear whether that's what was transpiring during the actual campaign. The designer does not claim to depict that level of fidelity, but because so much of the game is constructed to replicate what transpired (and does so well at it), it's uncertain where that leaves players trying to understand the campaign as a whole.

The map, as handsome as it is, is not much help in this larger regard either. If one is truly playing the British, why is the map oriented as if one is the German High Command looking for an opening? Might it have been better to have the map positioned with the player sitting in London, or offshore somewhere, surveying the situation as British commanders would have done?

Then there’s the title, which is also very much from the German perspective—the result of Wermacht commanders after the war endeavoring to show their strategic genius (and lack of culpability) by blaming Hitler and his whims for “spoiling the victory”. The name of the game (as it were) seems to put the onus on the player not to spoil the victory—but for whom? Perhaps the designer’s intent here is to be at least somewhat ironic: that Hitler did not spoil it, the British did—and that’s your objective as the player. There would be brilliance in that, and should not surprise those of us who have played what is very much a brilliant game.

It’s good to see that "A Spoiled Victory" is going to be renamed and offer a two-player option (which if the comments above are accurate may be more straightforward than it might first appear) in the long-promised updated edition to be published by Legion Games. Kudos too to White Dog Games for reprinting the game in the interim, and providing others with the opportunity to see outstanding and detailed design at work. There are some issues, but there is also an enormous amount to be admired in this game—one of the few in solitaire form that works as both an intellectual puzzle and a historical simulation, giving the player ample opportunities to make decisions and celebrate and suffer for them. "A Spoiled Victory" is a simulation to be savoured.

          Amazon, DoorDash will keep the controversial tipping policy Instacart just ditched      Cache   Translate Page      

Instacart heard the cries of an angered internet and took action. Amazon and DoorDash, on the other hand, seem content to dig in.

It was online anger that led Instacart to change its policy on tips, which were previously used to pay the base wages of the company's gig-economy delivery workers. As anyone who has ever worked in a service industry will tell you, tips are additive; it's money you're paid on top of your base wage.

          Love Sugar Magic: A Sprinkle of Spirits, by Anna Meriano      Cache   Translate Page      
It's such a lovely thing to enjoy the first book of a series lots (here's my review of Love Sugar Magic: A Dash of Trouble) and then to read the second book and not just enjoy it but love it!  A Sprinkle of Sprits (Walden Pond, Feb. 5 2019) continues the story of Leo, a girl whose family runs a magical bakery in a small Texas town, who longs to learn all she can about magic, even though her family thinks she's too young.  The oldest two of her four big sisters are also unencouraging about her friend Caroline; they don't think that magical folk should share too much with ordinary people.  Leo feels pressured to chose between friendship and magic, and she's knows she has responsibilities to the bakery...and now Caroline's feelings are badly hurt.

When Leo wakes up to find her abuela, dead for years, visiting her in very corporal form, she's sure that this time it isn't her fault.  Other spirits are popping up around town as well, and if it isn't Leo's magic at work, whose is it, and how can it be reversed?  The answer is unexpected, and a lovely surprise!

The six spirits all have their own agendas and unfinished business, and thought it becomes clear that they need to be sent back before they fade into nothingness, they aren't easily corralled.   Leo gets her family's permission to call on her friends to help, and a wild ghost chase ensues.  And finally, in the end, peace returns for both the living and the dead, and Leo finds out what her own particular magical gift is.

A Dash of Trouble is primarily about things going awfully wrong, so it was fun, but not desperately relaxing.  Things go wrong here too, but the point of the book is not magical mistakes, but family, communication, trust, and obligations, so it was a much warmer read!  I loved the spirits, each with their own concerns (they were sweetly mundane concerns--checking on family, garden, piano, and town...), and loved how Leo and Caroline's friendship survives its test to become stronger.  Leo becomes more empathetic, as well as more magical; she's much more likeable in this one!

And there are still all the warm, delicious treats being baked in the family business, sweeting the story even further.
