Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Saturday 11 August 2012
Today, Charles Cecil turns 50. Happy birthday! To celebrate, here are two Charles Cecil games for the price of one.
I played through little bits of the game yesterday looking for interesting scenes (I originally wanted to use another Easter egg — no, not that one, you pervert; the one with the lucky piece of coal), and I realised I only have vague memories of it. I guess I’ll have to replay it at some point. Is the remake any good, or is it inferior to the original (like the BS1 remake)?
Recently finished: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse (R) (4/5) | Detective Di (3.5/5) | Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations (R) (4.5/5) | Heaven’s Vault (3/5) | Ace Attorney: Justice For All (R) (3.5/5) | Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (R) (4.5/5) | Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (R) (4.5/5) | The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker (abandoned) (2/5) | Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (3.5/5) | The Sexy Brutale (R) (4/5)
The coal easter egg happened where you first arrive to South America and give the piece of coal to the goat in order to speak with it.
I liked the first two BS games, much less the sequel as they were of lower quality in my view, weren’t pure point and click games and had atrocious interface. I really looking forward to the fifth game as it suppose to return to the original concept of the series.
I also thought that BaSS had an excellent story with great art by Dave Gibbons (the artist responsible to Watchmen and V for Vendetta).
Don’t go near that Hole!!
An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.
The original two BS games are my all-time favorite adventure games. I was so sad when I bought the third game as a kid and it was completely different. And let’s not mention the fourth…
i’m considering BASS to be the next game I play and I am also wondering whether to play the remake or the original. Can someone say his opinion about the remake. I know about the comic style cutscenes. Are there any more differences?
Me too, after the Monkey Island 2 SE… I’ll be playing the Remastered version on my phone. ^_^
Apart from the cutscenes, they’ve (presumably) updated the main menu, added a notebook, and added a hint system.
