Petkovic on in Hamburg – 4 DTB

Jan-Lennard Struff missed 6: 3, 3: 6, 6: 7 (2: 7) against the world rankings-26. This implies that just 5 of eleven German specialists began in the primary area at the clay court events of the ATP and WTA before the very first round finished on Tuesday are there.

Andrea Petkovic was the only DTB expert to get to the round of 16 at the European Open in Hamburg to day. The 34-year-old last year’s finalist beat the seven years younger Tamara Korpatsch in the preliminary in 80 minutes with 6: 3, 6: 3. In the round of the top 16, Petkovic, which is established to number 8, is now managing the Japanese Misaki Doi.

lys loses competitive suit

Lys had to surrender the Argentinian Maria Carle 5: 7, 6: 3, 2: 6 on Monday in 2:28 hours. The Hamburg lady was as well inconsistent to get to the round of 16 on the Rothenbaum for the very first time. Schunk lost 1: 6, 4: 6 against the Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus.

Qualified Topo formerly lost 5: 7, 3: 6 in his opening game. The Munich team has started for Serbia in the past and also has been playing for Germany once more this summer season. After a great beginning, the precisely the same age Rehberg shed 6: 3, 5: 7, 1: 6 against Jozef Kovalik from Slovakia.


The English translation of Aconcagua, one of the last PSX first parties, is now available

Aconcagua was one of the last big blockbusters to come out on the first PlayStation. Developed by Sony itself, the game was published in June 2000, a few months after the launch of the PlayStation 2 in Japan and about to launch its successor worldwide. It was never published outside of Japan.

Today an unofficial translation has been released that brings the game to English, which tells the story of the survivors of a plane that crashes on top of Aconcagua, the highest mountain in Argentina. Hilltop, which recently also translated Racing Lagoon, Square Enix’s eccentric car RPG; can be found on his Patreon.

The game stands out for its cinematographic ambitions: the story of Kato, your avatar, and his descent down the mountain accompanying the activist Pachamama, is told without skimping on cinematic scenes, with up to 80 minutes of videos scattered throughout the game, an amount nothing negligible for the time. Playably, his approach to the catastrophic (an entire subgenre, perhaps not the most prestigious but one that remains active to this day, with Disaster Report as a great veteran) ends up being closer to the traditional graphic adventure, with a little more presence of action scenes.

If something defines Aconcagua, it is precisely the ambitions of all kinds: technically it is more than remarkable, especially with a new console already on the market, and voices were even recorded in English and Spanish, and although in the end it did not reach going out of Japan it seems that there were plans to release it. Hence, in the video above these lines, the patch launch trailer, there is so much dubbing; that part of the work was already done.

Although games continued to come out for the first PlayStation until 2004, Aconcagua was one of the last big first party productions that Sony worked on. It’s not the company’s most well-known project, of course, but surely a translation of this kind can help this interesting piece of PSX history reach more people.
