You, yourself have proved to be an enthusiastic & expressive playthrough leader so can understand your complete frustration at someone completely opposite with a very laid-back approach.

Hey! Thanks for the kind words, but I’m not “frustrated”! Grin Like I said, MikeKelly is doing the leader job which isn’t easy at all “by default”, and doing the favor to me, you and anyone else who wants to join. It’s probably rude to criticize someone who is doing a “favor” to you, but let’s be clear - I’m not frustrated. Wink

I apologise for the word diego but what word would you use instead?

I would have lead Memoria anytime with my eyes closed, but it all just happened so fast here.

If Memoria had had a leader I would have voted for it.
I didn’t think I should try to lead it myself because I don’t remember it very well.

I think it definitely helps the Community Playthrough if the leader likes the game.

I was just thinking loud - I said I might join the playthrough but I wished for some more info, apart from the official synopsis Smile

We have lots more information now, both from me and others - some good opinions have already been posted.

To keep the first post generic has its pros and cons. If we make the leader job easy, more people would become leaders and that would be wonderful. Too many see it as a task that takes far too much work.

Also, it allows people to express their opinions about the game without upsetting the apple cart, which is a good thing.

Anyway, I’m starting to warm up to the game on this playthrough, so I will gladly post my honest opinions on the game - good or bad.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

And as I watch the progress of the current playthrough, I see no excitement.

I think the least the leader can do, when saying “this” is where we will stop, is to post a screenshot of the stopping point. No criticism intended. If you’ve lead a few games using the same formula, and nobody complained, I would continue with the status quo as well.

     

For whom the games toll,
they toll for thee.
