This video introduces the player to the basic mechanics of a Face to face roll, the most common action resolution in the Infinity game. Face to Face rolls using the Ballistic Skill Value are the most usual.
Do I prefer a Yank telling me how to play a Spanish Game?
So much as a grew up with Cosby, Different Stokes and the Muppets… I’m an Irish Man… telling you how to play a Spanish game… while sipping scotch whiskey and smoking Cuban cigars, in my Italian silk underpants
I like your voice. Not sucking up, just like that I know for sure what’s being said. No offense to the chap with the thick spanish accent before hand. I was real challenge before to fallow him.
I won’t presume to tell you what you prefer…
Maybe you already speak spanish, or have the time and inclination to learn it. It is indeed a beautiful language, and it opens the door to a plethora of rich cultures around the world. And they do say that translation is treason…
Is it doing a disservice to this brilliant game, though, to help its spread in the anglo-saxon world with quality videos boasting clear explanations by a native english-speaker, even though he doesn’t belong to the minority that speaks the Queen’s English ?
Granted, I would have liked for Kenneth Williams to narrate the rules, but he sadly passed away a while ago. It would certainly have been… different… don’t you think ?
Perhaps, instead of watching those videos, you’ll have to make do with reading the downloadable quick-start rules we’ve provided.
You can do it in the accent you like best, I’m sure.
+1 for the sensible and enlightened viewpoint with the added gravitas of it coming from a Frenchman, so neither disputed language is native.
(Also for the sake of clarity I’m not being snarky, but I know you are and I approve.)
On a happier note – loving the firing animations! They look new, or at least I don’t remember them with the previous voiceover. Nice work either way.
Hang on now a second- Our english over here is much better than the queens english!
Cheers for the vids gents! the new voice overs will be easier to understand for those not familiar with the Spanish accents.
This is excellent!
Holy Recoil batman! loved the shooting bit at the start. Nice animation of the stills!
Lloyd’s clever meter must be about ready to burst. Great job on the vid. Felt really professional. Really high quality editing (pan / zoom on static shots, and supporting graphics were awesome.) Keep this up and mini companies might actually pay you guts to do video introductions to their games! That would be awesome. My only criticism is that its a bit short, but the quality is top notch.
Slainte (sips some Glenlivit with ya)
Oh and that bit about the Italian drawers, TMI brother, TMI.
Hey @ubiquanon it’s Carlos from Corvus Belli that’s creating the visuals on these so if you see him about the site give him some karma points
Just so everyone knows, look for @bostria when you want to give a thumbs up…
Please make a Malifaux week next, please.
