Re: Sierra Game Challenge.

I'd certainly be willing to give it a go. Heaven help me if it's one of the AGI games. Those suckers are TOUGH!

Re: Other Gaming Companies You're Obsessed With (Past or Present or Both)?

Part of it, for me, is visual style. All LucasArts games had incredible production values, but I'm particular about how character sprites are drawn. I prefer realistic proportions, and some LA games had characters with oversized heads and such (Looking at you, Maniac Mansion ). It doesn't matter the...

Re: Other Gaming Companies You're Obsessed With (Past or Present or Both)?

I used to work at a company called "Advanced Access" (long since now gone under), where we did all of their shipping. So we had all of their games and stuff in our warehouse downstairs....

Re: Other Gaming Companies You're Obsessed With (Past or Present or Both)?

Re: Sierra Game Challenge.

Sounds kind of fun. Do you record the game to share or just tell people about it?

Re: Other Gaming Companies You're Obsessed With (Past or Present or Both)?

Westwood Studios. I'm not much into strategy and haven't tried CnC, but I do like Dune II (even if I'm not very good at it yet). Obviously, I love Kyrandia and Lands of Lore. Never tire of those games, ever. Plus, Westwood's Monopoly CD from 1995 is my favorite computerized version of that game. Ano...

Re: Kyrandia Book 1 (Complete), II (In Progress), III (Pending)

To round things off, here is a set of saved games for Book 3: Malcolm's Revenge.
