When it is time to go out into the field and be the artsy crafty person that is hiding deep down inside of you what do you do? How do you release the inner you? Personally, I grab my trusty digital camera and just head out into the wild blue yonder and start snapping away. That is all well and good but there are a few things you should do before you go.
Most people can take pretty good pictures. They see what they want to capture, point the camera and click the little button. Done and done, right? Well, maybe not. If you’re hoping to capture everything you see as realistically as it can be done perhaps you should (and this is going to hurt most people) read the instruction manual, read a book on taking pictures or even take class in photography. But you say “I don’t want to spend all of the time and money to do all that.
I just want to take pictures.” Okay, you can do that. But I won’t soon be coming to your house to watch the little video presentation you’ve created that clearly illustrates how much you really need to learn more about photography, settings, lighting etc. It’s just not going to happen. I can be as kind as the next person with all of the oohs and aahs as the presentation plays. But, know this which will happen only once. Would it not be better to get just a little bit of training?
Don’t you want your friends and family to look forward to your next photo presentation with great anticipation? Of course you do. So, get some training either by book, video or in a local class at your community college or photography shop. It will be worth your time and the little bit of money you’ll have to spend. And then get out there and release the inner you that is so desperate to get out.
Remember Asteroids? If you’re old enough, you probably spent more than a few quarters dodging rocks and discovering the joys of velocity vectors with this classic arcade game. Remember shooting at those irritating little UFOs that would occasionally appear? Well, now Virgin gives you the chance to zoom about in space once more, shooting not at rocks and flying saucers but at spaceships just like yours, flown by other humans. Welcome to SubSpace, Virgin’s Internet game that takes the Asteroids idea and whomps it with a dose of steroids.
A simple game with a simple price ($29.95 retail), SubSpace manages to deliver more than expected. There is a jewel-box manual, and a full-size strategy guide as well. Internet play is free (though Virgin does provide numerous disclaimers disavowing any obligation to keep SubSpace servers up and running). There’s an offline practice mode, but the only real gaming is online. The graphics are simple yet colorful, with funky smoke trails from rocket engines and nifty explosions as well as nicely designed space ships. Designed for keyboard play, controls are simple and effective. And it will run on just any Pentium (though a 90MHz Pentium is recommended).
The strengths of SubSpace, though, are also its weaknesses. On the upside, it’s a great Asteroids clone. On the downside, it’s still just an Asteroids clone, albeit with lots of people and friendlier rocks. What’s great about this game, though, is its ability to combine simple mechanics with fairly complex strategies and tactics. While it won’t give chess a run for its money, SubSpace can be much more than a mere twitch game. With six different ships, the ability to attach oneself onto other ships as a turret, and numerous game styles (capture the flag, deathmatch, teams), there is a surprising amount of depth to the game.
