Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Wednesday 7 November 2012

As part of the rewards for giving money to Broken Sword 5, I got a free copy of something called In Cold Blood. I’ve never heard of that game (nor, it seems, has AGs), despite its having been made by Revolution.

Has anyone played it? Any opinions? Why does it seem to have flown under everyone’s radar?

It’s not a real adventure, that’s why. I got it for free at GOG.

Hehe, I love it how most gamers think adventure games are boring because there is not enough action, but we adventure gamers are bored by the action bits in games Smile

Just one aspect out of many which makes us unquestionably superior to “them”.

Unadventurey.

me too, and thanks to kuru i guess reviews from later on would consider this word/term as at their review’s verdicts maybe with the good/pros and bad/cons
as it had been an obvious feature (even if would not pass 1%) at most of all modern games…

Well, it’s an absolute rule of the English language that any noun or verb can be turned into an adjective by adding the suffix -y. And then you add un- to get the opposite. It makes a lot of sense, really.

“Unadventury” or “Unadventurey”? Never on my watch, Joss Whedon or no! Wink

Unadventurous” for all your gramatically correct lack-of-adventure needs! Laughing

Last time I looked horribly wasn’t an adjective. Tongue
And both spiky and spikey are correct. Tongue

I find this discussion rather unhorribley! Tongue

     

Duckman: Can you believe it? Five hundred bucks for a parking ticket?
Cornfed Pig: You parked in a handicapped zone.
Duckman: Who cares? Nobody parks there anyway, except for the people who are supposed to park there and, hell, I can outrun them anytime.
