I'm going hardcore.

I'm playing Treasure in the Royal Tower. Just started last night. Like the setting. I got the Nancy Drew 75th anniversary pack of 5 games (and a book ) so it basically comes to $5.00 a game. If they aren't splendiferous, I'm not out a lot. I've already played Message in a Haunted Mansion. It was pretty good. It would not be everyone's cup of tea obviously.

The only thing that ever kept me from buying these games is that I keep hearing how easy they are, and that they're formulaic to a fault. Although that multipack you bought DOES sound like a bargain!

I think they are formulaic. After this one, I'll hold off on playing the others for a while. I think they would get old quickly if you played them one after another. The 5 pack has some of the earlier games in it.

I got it at WalMart for $19.95. I saw the same price at Target.

I won a couple of the Nancy Drew games in a competition once, but still haven't actually played them .

Maybe I should at some point.

Broken Sword The shadow of the templars. I've just arrived in Ireland.
I enjoy this game a lot, but George Stobbart isn't as handsome as he is in B.S The sleeping Dragon.

No, but that makes him more realistic. And ofcourse it's a completly other style of graphics.

The last time a Broken Sword game got release, I played through the preceding games in preparation (I'm not quite sure why).

This time I'm too lazy, so I'm continuing to try my hand a Charles Cecil-imagined puzzles from The Da Vinci Code. I'm negotiating a maze. A maze full of policemen.

Where did all these enemies come from?

Mario Kart DS - just beaten the 50cc races, the 100cc races are frustrating.

OH MAN! DosBox has gained support for the original Theme Park since the last time I tried it.

See you in a year.

Last night I completed StarFox: Command for the first time.
Now I'm going for the remaining six times...

Currently playing Voyage and really enjoying it so far. Don't think I've gotten very far though. I've just retrieved all my lost objects I threw out of the shuttle during landing on the moon. Up next is to figure out how to open that gate on top of the mountain.

I´m playing Call Of Juarez at the moment, visually impressing game, but the story is quite shallow.

Hooray! I've just finished Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of Flesh. The reviews were right, the ending is something of a letdown, but still I'm glad I stuck with it. A hell of a story, in every sense of the word.

I am trying to keep to a new philosophy of sticking with a game until I finish it, instead of picking up and dropping things all the time.

Looking around my enormous collection of unfinished stuff to figure out what to focus on next, and in the meantime getting killed in Falcon's Eye (NetHack) several times a night as light relief.

VERY weird game, the organic-objects puzzle was the biggest WTF moment, to me at least. lol. But kudos to Sierra for trying to go in a different direction with the plot. Just wish there had been a Phantasmagoria 3!!

I'm trying to get hold of Phant 1 on eBay even as we speak.

Funny, a lot of people complain about the alien circuit box puzzle, but I thought it was one of the best things in the game! I guess it just happens to fit my strange mind.

The point where I had to resort to a walkthrough was where you're in Warner's office and have to log in as yourself on his computer. I kept saying "I wish there was some way to get to my computer and get my e-mails", and never thought of logging in on somebody else's system. Very embarrassing to be told that.

SPOILERS
I actually really liked Phantasmagoria 2! Cheesy acting & special effects, very good general design, loved the plot and the gameplay was ok compared to some of the other Sierra FMV games (Urban Runner anyone? ). Where the first Phantasmagoria was drowning in horror clichés, Phantasmagoria 2 was rather original. The end section was just surreal and totally crazy, which I loved! Also, the ending was great! I did prefer the 'human' ending to the alien one though. Good idea to give a choice there to the player.


Anyway, back on topic!

I've finished Voyage about a week ago. I'm still relatively new to Windows XP, so I've been tinkering around with which older games I can get to work on my XP computer. I'll see which one of those catches my attention most and focus on playing that one first. Right now I have Simon the Sorcerer 1, The Last Express, The Space Bar, Bioscopia, Byzantine: The Betrayal and Gobliiins 1 up and running.
