Old and new Armitage audio

I’m not sure what this means in terms of availability, but Arden’s Wake: Tides Fall is now more broadly available.

And Richard Armitage has a new audio project, Brink, that again sounds like a full radio play rather than a single author recording.

  1. These are so not my cup of tea. Ah well.

    • Our public library has a few of the 2000 AD titles, so I’m going to look at it. I really liked the “War of the Worlds” adaptation, so I am open to this because audioplays have interested me more than the straight one narrator audiobook read.

      • I liked War of the Worlds, too. It’s just the story doesn’t sound appealing. I should keep an open mind I guess. I’d be interested to see what you think of the 2000 AD titles.

        • i got the Doctor Who download and CDs, and I’m not a total initiate into that universe (although I know the outlines). The reviews of Armitage that I have seen have been really strong, along the lines of “why isn’t there more of him?”

          So who knows, maybe SF is really his genre.

          • I might watch the Korean movie soon. My husband says he wouldn’t mind seeing it too.

                • I guess. I hate watching things on my laptop. We have a Smart TV, but I don’t know if I want to risk trying to get it to cooperate with the computer. If I mess it up and can’t straighten it out afterwards, I’ll be in for a lot of hassle as dad is actively addicted to TV at the moment. Frankly part of the reason I haven’t watched much of Armitage’s recent oeuvre is that small screen is the only practical option under the constraints of lockdown.

                  • Our Netflix is now through our cable package, which is really handy. And then I can watch YouTube through the smart TV now. The only thing now is when I want to watch a Region 2 DVD, then I have to hook up my old laptop that is set to that to the TV. I really hate watching on the computer myself. My husband watches stuff on his iPad, but I’d rather watch on the TV. Maybe you need a second TV just for you.

                    • I can theoretically set up our TV to do that, but see above — if I get it wrong I’m toast. I do have my own TV set up with all my preferences, but unfortunately it’s in the downstairs bedroom that dad blocked off when he moved all our furniture around the last time. It would take several hours of work for me to get back in that room, and I just haven’t had the energy to fight with dad about it.

  2. More audio fantasy – yawn.
    I’m trying to find out how to view/play? Arden’s Wake and had no luck so far.

    • As I understand it, you have to have an Oculus Rift VR device (either the Rift, or the Rift S). In order to use it, you need to have a gaming console or PC with sufficient processor speed / graphics card. After you’ve invested in that, you can pay $8 to stream it.

  3. Wait a while some gamer on youtube might do a gameplay walk though of the Arden’s Wake. There are some channels that focus totally on indie games and such. So there is a chance of seeing it at some point for free. I’ll keep an eye out.
