An ancient Arab shipwreck discovered off an Indonesian island is revealing new details about 9th century trade.

The notebook written by Nehemiah Wallington, an English Puritan, recounts the fate of women accused of having relationships with the devil at a time when England was embroiled in a bitter civil war.

The document reveals the details of a witchcraft trial held in Chelmsford in July 1645, when more than a hundred suspected witches were serving time in Essex and Suffolk according to his account.

Divers (many) of them voluntarily and without any forcing or compulsion freely declare that they have made a covenant with the Devill,” he wrote.

    dai ora nn facciamo paograni assurdi la grafica si semplice ma, mi sembra evidente, per questioni di scelte stilistiche (naturalmente condizionate dai limiti del wii, ma comunque scelte). E’ tutta l’impronta grafica da considerare: naturale che se non fai un’ambientazione iper-realistica da next gen, devi semplificare e puntare sul “fumettoso”. L’ importante l’omogeneit della scena, e anche lo stesso de Blob un classico esempio del gioco che contrasta gli altrimenti evidenti limiti tecnici con scelte stilistiche azzeccatissime, capaci, nella maggior parte dei casi, di far dimenticare la pochezza dei poligoni utilizzati.Poi, com’ naturale e trattandosi di gusti, ognuno lo pensa come vuole, l’unica cosa che non gradirei e che non sarebbe giusta marchiare come scarso e graficamente pessimo un gioco solo perch inizia per “Need for Speed” NB: preferite la grafica di Undercover?!?!?
