    It's definitely worth checking out Black Swan Dream and number9dream, as well. I don't have much to say, but -- uh -- yeah, I really enjoyed both. Ghostwritten had a few decent ideas, but at this point I'd consider it more of a curiosity than required-reading.
  2. So, how is everyone?

    yeah that was weird
  3. Tales of Monkey Island

    in hindsight, 3 was my favourite episode. it had some of the coolest little touches. not only did it have some awesome puzzle design, settings and gameplay mechnics, it also had some neat presentation quirks -- stuff like the episode title card flying in as Guybrush and Morgan fell down the beast's gut. it doesn't seem like much, but it really makes the whole thing just feel like a really classy production. Ep 5 and 4 are on the same tier for me, with 1 & 2 a tier lower. my one significant complaint on the series as a whole was that the writers fell back on typical

    I just finished the game. I don't want to say anything other than, even if you hated DMC or NG, you owe it to yourself to play this game. it does SO MUCH right, it's absolutely absurd. I don't want to spoil it, just go buy this game and enjoy it, I don't think there's been a game more deserving of my $99AU in quite some time. It's hard to say because it's so early, but this might make my favourite games of all time list in the future. It's certainty one of the highlights of this current generation.

    I'd sell Bart's soul for an Idle Thumbs 2.0 -- er, 3.0
  6. Tales of Monkey Island

    there was a cool moment where Guybrush said to Morgan "my wife just etc etc (spoilers)" following a dramatic moment mid-way through the game, and it actually caught me off-guard. It's the sort of consideration for character video games usually don't have. So props to TT!

    loved Season 1 and 2. 'Reality 2.0' and the two parter 'Chariot of the Dogs' and 'What's New, Beelzebub' are must plays.
  8. train levels are usually the best levels in video games, so mm.

    yep, the game looks like it is going to be absolutely fantastic. I understand why some dismiss it outright based its presentation and trailers, but the game is just so much fun to play.
  10. 2009?

    I got stuck there, too. You have to use the back door facing the lake.
  11. 2009?

    I know it's going to make me sound like an unbelievably huge ass-kisser -- in this case the mouth-to-ass shenanigans are purely coincidental -- but The Tales of Monkey Island 3: Lair of the Leviathon deserves a mention. The best ep in the series, with the series in general all but definitely in my top three games of the year.
  12. Assassin's Creed II

    This game has sections in it called 'Assassin's Tombs' that are basically rooms that would have fit right in Sands of Time. They're the old-school "here's a room, figure out how to get to the exit" type platform/lite-puzzle rooms that made me love SoT so much. I highly recommend checking this game out, if you haven't already. After a disastrously slow opening hour or two, the game really opens up and becomes kind of great.
  13. Tales of Monkey Island

    I'd say The Rock of Gelato seems like the more likely place for the series to end rather than Monkey Island itself.
  14. Tales of Monkey Island

    I really liked the 'dramatic moments' and where Telltale took the story. I've already posted about it at length on another forum and cbf'd doing it again, but yeah, I'm just throwing that out there.
