I haven't played Jake Hunter, but as far as the other three are concerned, I'd say: Again < Another Code <<<< Time Hollow.

Is Time Hollow that good, or am I misinterpreting that post?

It's very very good, at least in terms of story (there's very little gameplay), and also the other two are pretty mediocre.

After reading in the forums of how "Time Hollow" was worth purchasing...headed to Gamestop and they had Time Hollow (DS for $7.99) and Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (DS for $4.99). I struggled if I wanted to get the DS or Wii version of "Broken Sword"...but I like the portability, so I went for the DS version.

Headed to Target as they often have adventure games PC on clearance and purchased the "Nancy Drew Ultimate Dare" set for $5.06 and "Secret Legacy: A Kate Brooks Adventure" for $5.06 and they also had a sale on "The Treasures of Mystery Island" set for $6.98.

Won this on eBay this morning for £7!



Granted, I don't like it like I do the original, but at that price (in 'like-new condition' as well) and with the DS's touch-screen interface, what the hell...

And who knows, I may even prefer the DC on DS compared to the PC version...

I still haven't purchased this one...looks like the majority are selling for around $59. Were you able to win it for much cheaper?

Oh, definitely! I won it for around £10.50! The cheapest copies on eBay UK are around £14+.

Just bought Dear Esther off Steam. 50% off on "midweek madness", so only $5.

Really curious as to what this will be like. Looks beautiful, sounds intriguing, if somewhat minimal in the gameplay department.

I bought D3 (2 copies) and Max Payne at full price. Then went to GOG and bought Myst masterpiece for $5 and then went to Amazon and bought Aura, Nibiru and Grey Matter all for less than $10 in total. Some good game shopping.
