Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Don't forget the 5th one. I like them all but I think the 3rd is the worst. 1st is definitely the best. At least that one should be watched by anybody at least once. Wait a sec... there's a fifth PotC movie? :shock: Okay, well, there is (not that I doubted you, MI, but it's possible you were pullin...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Yeah, it's all but accepted by the community that the first PotC movie started as a Monkey Island movie script.

Re: Steam and GOG sales

Things like missing certain scenes in LB1 or even outright missing points in any Sierra adventure game doesn't really line up well with the modern OCD trend of having to "achieve all the achievements" or not miss a single thing. Back then it didn't matter. Even for me, however, it's hard to adapt ba...

Re: Medusa to stand before the courts. (Warning: Nude Female Statue Image)

Yeah, that makes for an interesting story for "what if". I agree. I like what if scenarios. But in this instance, outside of the story, where this statue is using it and intentionally replacing the old one to send a message, it's the wrong message. And I think it's a very dangerous one. The average ...

Re: TV Series

I didn't start hearing app until smartphones were a thing. "There's an app for that" and all. I'm sure it must have been used like that at some point earlier on, but yeah definitely not the norm.

Re: Medusa to stand before the courts. (Warning: Nude Female Statue Image)

Yeah. But to get the point across properly it should have been the head of Poseidon, as you said. Of course, if it were then the layperson wouldn't get it. So they just opted to swap the characters of the pre-existing statue as a "turn the tables" sort of image. But the message that also sends as a ...

Re: LucasArts made their games easier than Sierra by making them more difficult?

Usually inventory items will change images to show that something changed (like opening the lantern). In that specific case I don't think it did, but if you hover over it the hotspot text would indicate a change. Either that or if you looked at it it would note the change. I seem to remember some ki...

Re: Medusa to stand before the courts. (Warning: Nude Female Statue Image)

I don't see the logic in this. The point it's trying to make seems to be lost in the light of the actual mythology, isn't it? Is Perseus really the enemy? Is that what this is trying to say? Perhaps she should be carrying Athena's head instead? But then that probably wouldn't line up with the messag...

Re: TV Series

I'm going through The Sopranos for the first time. See what the fuss is all about. I'm reasonably intrigued. I must be since I'm almost done the second season.

Re: Game: The Witcher 1 Enhanced Edition.

Apparently the original Witcher 1 was even WORSE and the Enhanced Edition was meant to make it more playable. I don't know what it looked like but I thought I read somewhere that it was more of an overhead top-down game than 3rd person.

Re: Return to Myst... in VR

This is the third remake. I don't consider Myst Masterpiece to be a remake any more than the CD version of Space Quest 4. It just uses 16-bit graphics over 8-bit and higher fidelity sound. realMyst is, however. And I also consider realMyst Masterpiece to be a remake considering the changes and the e...

Re: The "MS Paint Your Favourite Games" Game

Not me. :( I can't draw worth a hill of beans. That's why I created those Sierra screenshots (like what Dr. Cranium really means when he says "This time, for sure!!") :D When I first started this thread way back my original condition was that it was SUPPOSED to look terrible. People just started th...
