Re: Happy Advent! And...

Chicken or squid? :? Wow. Was that to make sure that everyone got the chicken? ;)

But yes, undercooking chicken is a major health hazard. It's much too easy to get very sick from undercooked chicken ... yikes. :( Did the caterer get sued for poisoning you all, BBP?

Re: Happy Advent! And...

*snerk* ;) Well, I'm pretty sure I'm in the clear. I don't have a head for drinks, so I might have one slightly alcoholic drink, but that's it. I know my limits. ;)

Re: Space Quest III Box Comes Alive!

Could SQ3 be remade in 3D? :?

(Well, yes, I know the obvious answer: yes, it could, given enough time, interest, developers, artists, money, etc. etc. ;) Perhaps I should change the question, then: could SQ3 plausibly be remade in 3D?) ;)

Re: Happy Advent! And...

Well. These are all fairly obvious too. I'd hope. They seem to be, I'm sure - but there are always people who break them, otherwise they wouldn't need to be pointed out, right? ;) Take, for instance, the guy I'm sitting next to at work. I'd say he'd be in his mid-to-late 50s, so he should know, but...

Happy Advent! And...

Happy season-leading-up-to-Christmas! :) Many of us here have a working life, and I'm aware we try to keep that separate from this forum (devoted as it is to Sierra's games etc.) I only wished to share this (from seek.com.au), which I thought was interesting: The Five Things NOT to do at a Work Chri...

Re: Space Quest III Box Comes Alive!

It doesn't load? :(

*******EDIT*******
Well, it does now. ;) Not sure what happened there.

Anyway, neat! Perhaps the game itself should have been in 3D. Or, given what happened to GK3, perhaps not.

Re: Steam and GOG sales

It's time to play GK1 again! :D For a limited time, you can get 70% of Gabriel knight 1 (the new one) on GOG.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and snap it up! Unless you already have it, of course. (Darn). ;)

Re: GK2, first impressions ... and ***SPOILERS***

GK1 wasn't that difficult for me, except for the snake and (as BBP mentions) those darn zombies. ;) GK2 took me a loooooooooooooooooong ... tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime ... tooooooooooo ... finish. :P This was mostly due to that darned museum, which I could never work out - until now. (Thanks, BBP!) Oddly...

In this case it happens before you roll past the free period. You're charged right away.
Our Disney Overlords know you're going to stick with it. :lol:

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

No one can restore a BRAIN! "Spock's Brain" distilled down to four minutes I am surprised any of the cast could deliver these lines with a straight face. I'm struck by the stupid dialogue and cheesy action. :| The whole point of the episode seems to be that women cannot think for themselves, and mu...
