Women’s Week - Special


FBI agent Victoria McPherson is a good detective, loyal to her coworkers, with a lot more personality than for instance agent Nicole Bonnet in Art of Murder. She doesn’t bat an eye when investigating the most gruesome murders which have me screaming for my mother. Young, cool, independent, with a boyfriend hovering in the background and a nice father to bake cookies for.  Cool

Such a strong powerful woman, I think that there`s no other genre were women are represented in a better way than adventure games.

I’m surprised this game has never received much traction in the Community Playthrough voting.

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY!! Uh, what? Uhh… well HAPPY WOMEN’S WEEK! (I’m not late for that!)

Good game that dragged a bit, but still the atmosphere was thrilling. I only hoped for a more of a detective work. Victoria is a strong character. Gotta hand it to Microids - they know how to make good female protagonists.*

So much in the background I don’t even remember she had a boyfriend! (but to be honest I don’t think I ever finished the game…)

I was hoping you’d post this. I still remember the first few scenes of Still Life where Victoria walks into a grotty looking crime scene and the first thing out of her mouth was “LUCY, YOU GOT SOME ‘SPLAINING TO DO.”.

What is with French devs writing sassy white American women?

I’ll tell you what though, this is the last game you’d want to post during black history month. I counted at least two characters shucking and jiving.

I love Stil life, and Victoria McPherson <3. A character with a very powerful and straightforward personality, and with an appeal that goes beyond her beautiful appearance (that short hair with a kind of gothic style). A pity that Stil life 2 out so bad compared to the first game. But even so, I always want more of her.

I also would love more of her. But not if it is in the same way SL2 presented her. Which is saying the same thing in a different way. Unfortunately, I think we will have to wait in line. If Sokol is going to resurrect any game, the first will be Syberia. And that is fein by me.

I must confess that I always mix up the Still Life and Art of Murder series. I know that they are not completely the same, but they are still so similar that I have a hard time remembering what is from what, and which it was that I actually liked.

whenever you see more wall spilled with blood, corpses and cookies go for Still Life(s)
