Today we're looking at a classy choose-your-own adventure game from the BBC. Sounds like it's got good sound-effects. However, until about 4mins in, it's a bit disconcerting that DAVE the computer is most definitely not a bloke...
Today we're looking at a brilliant daily meditation skill that talks you through an initial relaxation routine and then concentrates on dealing with sadness, gratitude and many other topics that affect our daily lives. Love this skill.. We also remind ourselves that we can ask the A-lady; "What skills do I have?"
True or False is a nice trivia quiz that will pit your wits or possibly wisdom against facts fresh from the A-lady. Play against friends or solo and find out how many other players around the Echo-system (sorry about that pun) also got it right... or wrong. We also find out that we can ask the A-lady; "What are the most popular games skills?"
Though today there's only a very modest number of actions from which to choose, this new built-in ability to chain together tasks and fire them off with a single command (or at a certain time) promises to be a game-changer. Hmmm... I wonder if one day you could use it to change the game you're playing? One thing you can do today is set a scheduled routine to wake you up with the news, say, rather than simply one of the stock sounds. Very cool.
Ask the A-lady to give you a maths quiz and she'll enable this skill. Don't like maths? Then play yesterday's skill again, choosing a character who does like maths, and then it might put you in the mood for this one. Cunning.
Is today's skill at all similar to the famous video game Minecraft? I've no idea but from the little I've gleaned of the game from my kids it probably isn't a million miles off the mark (after you've taken away all the graphics of course). And it has (cheesy) sound-effects.
Woo, woo! (Just adding in some sadly absent sound effects) Two groovy skills to keep you on the right track when it comes to knowing your UK train trivia. We then finish off with some bonus soothing train sounds to send us to sleep. Don't listen to this episode when operating heavy machinery.
