Currently puzzling my way through KEEPSAKE although i feel like an absolute dumb ass cause im still having trouble with about 3 of the puzzles in it.. namely the JIGSAW puzzle where u have to put the cogs together, the SECRET DOOR puzzle but i think im kind of on the right track and the MACHINE ROOM puzzle where theres 8 pedastools and each has 3 possible selections...

errghh..


i have never really played an adventure before where theres only one NPC to talk to and about 6 hard core puzzles going at once, this is new to me.. if you read my favourite games lists and such you'll see thta i mainly played LucasArts games which never had puzzles as SUCH.

Either way, im enjoying the challenge and the Castle is beautiful if not a little empty

I think I remember hearing somewhere that you cant finishe the cog puzzle untill you find out why you need to solve it or something, solving it just does nothing and it resets once you leave it. I might be wrong though

Half Life 2 Episode 1.

I just started the second chapter but then crashed violently to desktop. Ah, how I love thee, Valve.

Seriously though, I'm enjoying it so far (crash notwithstanding). Whether or not it's worth the US$20 still remains to be seen.

DREAMFALL! Finally found it at Target yesterday while scoping out any possible DS Lites. I'm in Chapter Five, fiddiling around with the WATICorp building. Fun.

Just to be safe:

Spoiler:
Holy shit, it was great to play as April again, and to see Emma, Newport, Charlie.

Baldur's Gate I + Tales of the Swordcoast, Baldur's Gate II + Throne of Bhaal, all together as Baldur's Gate Tutu.


And with modules. Can you believe it? I'm running around the Northern Swordcoast and Baldur's Gate, and my party members are actually talking to each other! They also talk to *me*! It's so awesome. Now Baldur's Gate I is perfect. Oh, and I downloaded alternate romance options for Baldur's Gate II. Mr Anomen "Annoy-me" Delryn is nice (though his over formalness in German was...irritating.), but I won't play through all that again.

Somebody has stolen my Baldur's Gate II Collection.
And before I even got the chance to play it!

I just had to share this. See? Banter! Woohoo!

The Kobold, Xvart, and Tasloi were called Larry, Darryl and Darrly respectively, by the way.

Grim Fandango
I've just started and I guess the beginning is fairly easy to get the player into the game. I'm now trying to open up a door to some communication machine on the bottom floor.
I like everything I've seen and experienced so far.

Just one more screenshot:



He smiled!

The End must truly be nigh.


(On a side note, "Noriko" is supposed to mean "doctrine", "Child of Ceremony", "Law" and "Order". I thought it was a nice touch to name her that, considering the premise of the games. )

(On another side note, Xan [I don't know, but his gloomyness makes him very loveable. I'm torn between wanting to cheer him up, or agreeing with him if only to be friends with him.]is one of my characters. I'm going to get rid of Minsc and Dynaheir at one point, and instead pick up Alora [another one of my favourite characters. I love her happy nature.], and later Ajantis. With Garrick [and to some extent also Imoen] in my group as well, I wonder how Alora's bubby happiness, Garrick's cheerful nature, Imoen's...Imoen-ness, and Xan's general pessimism [which isn't really the right word] will work together.)

Dreamfall, Chapter 5 (or 6).

Love the game, art, dialogs.
Hate some (not all) stealth and action sequences, especially those at the DreamCore.

Sudeki on the XBOX. It's a pretty good RPG, but it has its shortcomings. I recently obtained a brand new copy of it for 10 bucks, and I'm currently around 3/4 through the game. I'm currently at the Aklorian Stronghold if that means anything to anyone.

Just Finished the first 2 Bone episodes, it was better than I had expected in some aspects but I was dissapointed in others....


Like the transition from the comic to the game isnt that great. The game doesn't deliver them aswell as the comic did IMO...

That was one of the main problems I had with them (well, the demo of the second one as that's all I've played), they're much more childish than the comics and the voice acting just doesn't fit in. I wonder how they'll make the transition to more serious themes that start developing with the third installment. Bone has deserved more, but hey, who am I to argue Jeff Smith.

I'm currently replaying Dune (the first/old one, from Cryo), and enjoying every minute.

And I plan on replaying Commander Blood soon after.
