What game have you just finished?
Untold Stories. I was put off buying it earlier in the year by the apparent horror theme, but it’s really not a horror game (well, it is in some ways but it’s never horror for the sake of horror). Nor is it a collection of 4 disconnected stories. It is, in fact, a really good and highly inventive adventure game.

I am starting Syberia3 finally
Wish me good luck
I never asked for this
Embarrassed to say, after 20 years of playing adventure games, I just finished “Beneath a Steel Sky” which I was only aware of for about a year. Probably because it was a European game. Maybe because it was so recent, but one of my favorites now.

Been playing quite a few adv games lately. Last one i finished was the Gabriel Knight 20th anniversary remake. They’ve done a pretty good job i think, but it doesn’t come close to the original. Didn’t really like most of the new voices and the music and cutscenes are all terrible.
Took me long enough but I finally managed to finish Syberia 3 recently. Didn’t mind the game at first, but damn I’m happy it’s finally over. Overall the game was just super boring and tedious and it ran like crap on my pc. Wasn’t a fan of trying to explore the huge, totally uninteresting environments, the dodgy camera, and the long loading times (which there were a lot of).
Also I had absolutely no idea who the bad guys were or why the hell they were chasing after Kate. Don’t know what she did to piss them off so much. Maybe I missed something somewhere but by the end I didn’t really care.
Anyway, ran into one major bug which prevented me from continuing the game for a while as none of the solutions online worked for me, but I managed to solve the problem myself.
Probably won’t ever play this game again. Looks like there might be a 4th game in another decade or two if the ending is anything to go by, but they should’ve just left the series alone after 2.
In the last month I finished JULIA, Stasis, and Cayne. All good.
The Dream Machine - I highly recommend it.
