Stranglehold Revisted, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC

Hello readers! You may remember recently (ish) that I mentioned the game Stranglehold in the pages of this here blog. Since then I have had a chance to visit the museum proper and boy o they have a lot of stuff on display! Here's a guided tour (ish). Apologies for the broken objects but at the time of the tour I was under some pretty heavy fire you know?

Welcome to the Chicago Field Museum a museum in Chicago! I'll be your tour guide Tequila Yuen! It's a name!

Exciting dinosaurs!
The museum has at least four taxidermy specimens of Thylacinus on open display! You won't see these in the wild unfortunately!

Thylacinus and bullets
A nice Parasaurlophus skull!

That was close!

What a surprise! On your right you'll see a Tyrannosaurs skeleton :(

And wow what a treat! A taxidermy Dodo. You won't see many of these around.

Didus ineptus
You uncultured bastards!

Dead as a Raphus cucullatus

A GIANT Rhamphorynhcus!


Here you will see a Camarasaurid sauropod just past the goons!

This was a tail.

Price of buying new ones 50,000 USD
This was some vertebrae with ribs but...


It's just tommy K

And that brings us to the end of our tour. Please wait here for the tour of the Archaeology section and apologies to those visitors who lost limbs and relatives.

Beat that BM!

Dinosauriness: Countless of prehistoric creatures in these galleries and some nice recent examples of extinct animals including: Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, Camarasaurus, a couple of pterosaurs, a sabre toothed cat, Einosaurus, Parasaurlophus, Triceratops, Mosasaurus, Rhamphorhynchus, an Ichthyosaur, various dinosaur eggs and footprints, Velociraptor, Thylacinus, Raphus cucullatus and a selection of flightless birds!

Scientific Accuracy: Museum conservation issues aside (the taxidermy specimens of the dodo and thylacine shouldn't be on open display) they are striking representations of real specimens with the rare exception of a few enlarged specimens.

Buzz Bonus: If you shoot all of the bones off of the large sauropod skeleton you can run up the back of you get the achievment "Palaeontologist".
