Re: Cool and Interesting News & Such.

More The penultimate picture is very close to where I live, the one of Quinta da Regaleira. I once went there at night, after climbing over the wall with my friends and we got inside an underground gallery not open to the public which was very beautiful and I remember you could feel the bats flappi...

Re: Cool and Interesting News & Such.

I found this in the middle of nowhere while running in the woods! Very beautiful, too bad I didn't have a decent camera with me!

I wonder how it got there and where it came from!

Re: Pics from GK2 which I never saw in the game.

Nice finds! Pretty building! The thing about JTR's stolen evidence is you're going to need additional proof of the provenance of the item, like the michaelmas scarf that was instrumental in that weird DNA testing that popped up in 2014. Yeah, there's a lot of sensationalism and made up evidence jus...

On the same subject, google street view of Hashima island, one of my favourites! Too bad it became a tourist attraction!

More abandoned places http://www.architecturendesign.net/the-40-most-breathtaking-abandoned-places-in-the-world/ That's spectacular, collector! I love abandoned and bucolic places and I take photos of some of the places that I visit. Me and my friend sometimes go on trips around the country just to...

Re: Pics from GK2 which I never saw in the game.

Hey, a fellow Ripperologist! Great! :D The entire case is dumbfounding - what struck me most is that a lot of evidence was stolen by people working on the case, as souvenir. Unbelievable! :D We have to create a JTR thread here on the sierra forums! I wouldn't be surprised it there's more Ripperolog...

Re: Pics from GK2 which I never saw in the game.

Especially the story of King Ludwig II is amazing. It really is, isn't it? ;) Some years ago, I tried writing a short biography of Ludwig II. The more research I did into his life and death, the more amazed I became. It's very strange that even 100 years after his death, the Bavarian State archives...

Re: Adventure Gamers Top 100 Adventures of All Time

Just finished Fate of Atlantis! As always, Indy showed a total disregard for the well being of animals by hunting a crab using a human rib cage - then again, he shows a total disregard for humans too, at least he's a democratic man, everyone's equally worthless for him! I really liked the game, the ...

omg... Indy showed literally no emotion when they found the frozen body of Heimdal, he seemed amused and even joked about it! The man is a complete sadistic sociopath!!

Re: Adventure Gamers Top 100 Adventures of All Time

I started playing fate of Atlantis just now, it seems to be a great game, but I really didn't like the part where you have to bring the poor rodent to be murdered by the snake and then they both fall into a cliff! What did the rodent (or the snake) ever do to Indy? What an unscrupulous thing to do!!!
