Re: "Lady Detective" game... is it... Laura Bow?

No comment on the graphics/cartoons business. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. :)

Personally, I'm very excited about this. :D Perhaps I should play the original LB now. I never finished them to start with.

Re: Summer Daze at Hero-U Kickstarter.

Congratulations, MusicallyInspired! :D That just gives me even more of an excuse to download the game and try it now. Ay-yi-yi ... so many games, so little time ... ;)

Re: Summer Daze at Hero-U Kickstarter.

Oh, no ... more puns!!! :lol: That's all right. I like Corey and Lori's games, even with (or especially because of) the dreadful puns. ;)

Pun for all and all for pun! :P I'll give it a try. Thanks, Tawm. :)

Re: D&D Character Background Challenge (It's Own Thread Now)

Yikes. :shock: Moderators delete your posts at random? That shouldn't happen. The background stories you write are fine - I don't see any reason for anyone to delete them, unless they're being jerks. :x Well, they will lock threads that they feel veer off, even slightly. They will delete threads if...

Re: Question re: SQ series

Tawmis is right, there are tips and tricks to the joust, and you can adjust the difficulty of the arcade sequences. The Knight also gives you the option to skip the joust entirely. He does??? :shock: Well, I never ... I never got the option to skip the joust. :( Or maybe ... I really can't remember...

I post them here for anyone to read; but also for archiving purposes; because the Moderators at the OotS forums can be... picky . So a thread may be alive and well, then the next day vanish. So I'd hate for my efforts to randomly be lost because of some moderator... Yikes. :shock: Moderators delete...

Re: Question re: SQ series

Well, I won't get into the KQ7/MOE controversy, since I never played either. ;) But I went ahead and got SQ4, 5 and 6, as well as Conquests of the Longbow (yay Christy Marx! :D) and GK2. :) I've never completed any of these games (except for SQ4), and I haven't played SQ6 before. So I'm curious. :) ...

Re: D&D Character Background Challenge (It's Own Thread Now)

Sorry, Tawm - how much feedback would you like? I do weekly critiquing with a group, so I'm used to giving detailed feedback. If you want me to do detailed analyses (e.g. sentence construction, punctuation, craft - stuff like that), I can do it, but it would be easier (and faster) if I only did one ...

Re: Question re: SQ series

Err, BBP - why do you say that SQ6 turns sickening? (Ugh). I don't mind educational, but why sickening?

Datadog, what do you mean by "those last two" - do you mean "Vohaul Strikes Back" and "SQ: Incinerations"? (Yep, I know you created SQ:I. It looks good, from what I can see). :)

Question re: SQ series

I just noticed that over at GOG, loads of Activision (aka Sierra after the notorious take-over) games are on sale again, including the KQ series and the SQ series. (Probably others too). I've never played SQ6, or KQ7 or KQ8. From what I've seen, SQ6 seems to be the least recommended of the series, K...

Re: Hmm ... a question re: Glenn Beck

*shrug* Well, I finished reading the book. Frankly, I wouldn't recommend it; it's very partisan, especially when it comes to recent history. Then again, I only have myself to blame. I didn't look up who Mr Beck was before I bought it; I just dipped casually here and there and thought it might be int...

Some very cool news: A call-centre scammer faces hot, juicy, $9m justice.
