In a tried and tested manner of rushing a recording while sleep deprived and ending up babbling through, we finally bring you the proper version of Tembo: The Badass Elephant. It took Sega 24 hours to get the right version released on Steam, and so here is the follow-up video which now features the fully working version which means that you can see properly what the game was to be like.
So come with me to see if the wait is worth it as we become the badass elephant while talking b*llocks and making err noises*;
* Terms and conditions apply, see pack for details, man, I really need sleep….
DISCLAIMER:The video you will see will show how Tembo The Badass Elephant got released on PC day one. As and when it’s patched / re-released or god knows what, there will be a follow up if I repurchase the game that is….
I am disappointment in human form.
Having been looking forward to this from when I played at Rezzed back in March 2015, and thus remarked as follows;
To be fair, who hasn’t already thought about an army elephant saving people while collecting peanuts and ramming walls, enemies and putting out fire with their trunk? I did 23 times today alone. So did the chaps who had taken a lot of cocaine over at Game Freak, who did that Pokemon thing ages ago it appears as they teamed up with Sega to bring this to the gaming dining table, slated for later this summer.
Just have to say, this is an instant purchase if the final product holds up to what was demoed here, which apparently was a very early build and slightly suffering from stuttering but nothing which would really put you off playing.
Just the fact it’s an insane idea alone, let alone a very very enjoyable platform game, with a large amount of charm, people to save / ride on your back to freedom, and the double jump brings with it a cute attempt at flapping his legs to stay in the air longer, yeah, I can easily see it’s appeal.
And then…..we get something broken, which possibly was the same very demo that I played back in March.
Another one bites the dust…..
Just like Warner Bros who suspended any further PC sales on Steam and Retail, Sega has now done the same with Tembo on PC, probably to avoid anyone else picking this up in the broken state it’s in. When asked on Twitter why this happened, the response was;
Later, they fully acknowledged the fault and are working on it….
We’re also looking into the Tembo problems on Steam. Sorry about the inconvenience! — SEGA (@SEGA) July 21, 2015
The worst part is, it appears that the demo they added to Steam is the fully working version which means that you can see properly what the game was to be like, well when you don’t attempt to change resolutions too much…..
Hell, at least Batman ran and saved settings and your game progress despite bad performance! This is actually the first game under the new Steam Refund system that I’ve refunded and basically it could not be a more open and shut case for qualifying for a refund.
Steam actually refunded within minutes and the game was quickly removed from my account. It therefore seems to work as intended.
However….that doesn’t mean you don’t get to see what happened….oh no, just see for yourself how Sega let the game out the door on Steam in the first place and perhaps when they’ve fixed the issue, we shall enjoy properly being a badass elephant;

Good day to you all dear campers once again, It’s time for another one of those posts after a few weeks of nothing again to catch up with what’s been going on and what’s to come in the near future again on this lovely little digital tome or beyond.
Hot days make me even more lazy than usual….bring back the cold dark damp nights of misery!
First of all, got to be honest, I’ve been a completely lazy b******d. Being the Lord of Leisure, that shouldn’t be a shock to anyone, but lately during the past few weeks, the day job has been slightly more taxing and therefore the last thing I’ve ever been wanting to do is sit in front of the PC and type away on more gibberish when the real thing has been just sleeping on the sofa to then wake up past midnight and then retire to the bedroom.

You may have been noticing that recently here on Ooh Sometimes, that the blog posts here have been more about attempts of gaming videos which have been somewhat hit and miss in terms of quality and entertainment value, instead of the more usual content remarking on various things in film, gaming and the news.
This is due to wanting to do a little more than just static content on here, in the same way what the “Ooh Sometimes Podcast” was some time ago. But again given the time and effort for that, life overtook everything else, including anything being posted here for periods of time and thus it was consigned to history (at least for the time being.)
Since then, the media landscape has changed massively for media with YouTube and Twitch taking over and providing access to audiences and content that before you could never really see via conventional means. To be honest, given some of the videos on YouTube, it became a case of seeing “How hard could it be?” Continue reading →
DISCLAIMER:The video you will see will show how Batman: Arkham Knight works on PC from the day one release. As and when it’s patched / re-released or god knows what, there will be a follow up.
And so finally after much waiting, the Batman game we all wanted to play next from the lovely people at Rocksteady has arrived on all next-gen platforms and of course PC. I am the Bane of Leisure and I will guide through the night, to fight foes and drive that new shiny tank / car Batman seems to have now….But this game release is not without a huge amount of outcry from the internet given what state it’s arrived in and what has happened since it’s arrival.
So you are aware, this was played without altering any INI files or any other fixes that have been suggested by the community, it was taken purely n it’s own merits playing on the Evilbeast which will be more in keeping with how many others on PC will have been installing and running it.
At the time this video is going up, TotalBiscuit has already released a Port Report video and there are various others now posting how it runs on their systems, no-one having a good time really. Rocksteady are slowly working on something to try and fix the issues after Warner Bros suspended any further PC sales on Steam and Retail, but how long that will be, is up to everyone to guess;
Totally supported decision to suspend PC version. We have our best engineers at Rocksteady working like crazy to help fix the issues ASAP.
But when all is said and done, is the game fun to play despite the performance issues, or has the batmobile lost all it’s wheels with the Joker having the last laugh with everyone after all? Go watch the YouTube video and see for yourself what has happened*;

DISCLAIMER: I’m not at my best during this, given that I was just getting over being meh. But what the hell!
A brief video again in the same fashion as the recent Brutal Doom video that was put on after the livestream of the game to show it off in it’s proper glory, this time I end up showing you happy campers what’s new within Hearthstone this week as Blizzard released a couple of new nice things to the card game which has everyone crying over how much they’ve spent on a game that’s free-to-play….
So go watch the YouTube video placed below for your card playing pleasure;
* Terms and conditions apply, see pack for details, self-esteem can go only go down as you lose time and time and time again at this bloody game….
Hello there campers, this is just a brief post to state that I would have been doing another livestream tonight and release some mutterings on things but….
I am rundown to the point of being almost completely buggered. For some reason, at the end of today, as I reached the end of the work day, I was just feeling weak and perhaps, it’s a sign I’ve been overdoing it out and about and need some time to meh out.
Going to the gym at 6am is supposed to be a good way to start the day but in reality, it’s a sure fire way to drain your lifeforce. The past couple of weeks at the day job which goes to pay for everything here at Ooh Sometimes and the software to create video content has been ridiculously over the top and thus perhaps it’s something which shows you can only do so much.

We begin this post about a simple statement of fact.
No-one could have had much faith in this film in the UK given the sheer volume of tickets being given away by pretty much every single outlet going judging from the offers seen over the past week from Hello Magazine to Tastecard. Hell, you probably even a ticket given away with every happy meal seemingly in an attempt to ensure that enough people go in, sit down and then tell everyone else how amazing it is.
So will this blog post on some fat dude’s web space be a good result of that grand experiment or ill, in that it made me feel ill and lose faith in humanity?
Well there’s only one way to find that out, so join me now dear ladies and gentleman on a journey to blow the cover off the newest undercover agent film; Spy
Given this is the first time I’ve seen the lead actress in anything longer than a trailer that I had instantly dismissed, I actually had to look on the internet to see what Melissa McCarthy had done in the past and why the director’s name was banded around so much by various outlets. Turns out they had worked together on films like Bridesmaids and The Heat, which apparently was very successful. Continue reading →
When coming to write about the latest entry in the Marvel Universe’s magic box of tricks, known of course as Avengers: Age of Ultron, I got a bit stuck. Rather than bounding out of the box with utterings of an entertaining, thoughtful post about the one billion plus money making film with the lovable cast we last saw all together in the first Avengers, I actually sat down at the keyboard and drew a massive blank. In fact, it was more akin to dribbling a little bit and making an errrrrr noise.
Which in itself may also perhaps be one way to describe the film. Another is; it fills the time with an episode before we see the much bigger saga unfold.
Now given this is the internet where people are destroyed by the masses by daring to do something different or well, anything really, let me get a small chance to explain what I’m talking about before you kill me anyway.
First of all, what happens? Well, in the country of insert eastern European sounding name here, we begin with the lovely heroes raiding a Hydra outpost led by Baron “Bloke from the end of Captain America: The Winter Solder”, who we know had been experimenting on humans using the sceptre that Loki had before he was defeated all that time ago.

DISCLAIMER: We drink during this a lot. And also we nicked a video from ITV’s past….Please bring back Knightmare….
With the spirit destroyed after loosing far too many games at Hearthstone, and well seeing as time after time, the recording software also goes wrong over and over again, this time we go back to doing what we do best. Shoot things while drinking vodka when we see the money shot.
Though this time, we will not be using Sniper Elite 3 but instead Zombie Army Trilogy, in which Hitler basically decides to try one last naughty trick against the world and unleashes zombies for the allies to kill. What better way of showing our sniping skills against humans, than showing our sniping skills against zombies….while drinking too! Then possibly dirty fun sexy time…no…wait…getting ahead of myself…
So as we did before with Sniper Elite 3, I once again invite you dear campers to gather your shot glasses and drinks of choice, with perhaps some of those weird flavoured crisps from the ye poshe pub and possibly have a good old time* where we will be featuring the lack of skills that only can come from playing while drunk!
Will I spill a drink all over the keyboard? Will the video go up the wall halfway through again thus requiring a hastily put together explanation which leaves you just bloody annoyed?
Who honestly knows other than to watch the YouTube video placed below for your drinking and dancing pleasure;
