Re: Ten Favorite Non-Adventure Games

Are you guys talking about this particular The Lion King ? The one where you had to jump over the rocks in the stampede? If so, I'll have to add that one to my list! My favorite level was Willow Cascade(??), although the log hopping up the waterfall was a little tricky. Aladdin and Pocahontas were ...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

I nearly jumped a hole through the wall with happiness today... found a Sierra Originals Gabriel Knight 2 for E2,50!
Box is in good condition, but I can't find any graphic novel.

...so if I become silent, you know what I'm doing...

Re: Ten Favorite Non-Adventure Games

1 MineSweeper. Ahhh... the days... I used to spend hours on that, just pop in your favourite CD and play! 2 Bicycle Card Games. Lets you choose your own music. Unfortunately AIs on card games aren't usually very good (depends on the game of course), but this one has a very strong Cribbage, and it ha...

Re: Ridiculous Life Lessons From New Girl Games

It's weird that toy companies have been re-releasing all the old 80s toys. I can understand Transformers and G.I. JOE given the recently released and upcoming movies. But the others? I've seen My Little Pony and even some sort of re-release of He-Man from a "new-and-improved" cartoon. Adam still lo...

Quick Question

For my website I'm looking for the origins of this pic.

It's on the Gabriel Knight 1 CD but I don't recall it being used in the game. Anyone seen it elsewhere?

Re: Ridiculous Life Lessons From New Girl Games

Never have been too much into make-up, looking-good-for-boys, pink, horses, ballet etc either... not enough feminine influence in the house I suppose. But I wouldn't say it's a modern thing. Women have been stereotyped as that, and marketed as that, since, well... when did marketing start? It's actu...

Re: What are you playing now?

Re-living my childhood, thoroughly enjoying DOSBox and setting up for conjuring with my name: Clyde's Adventure. Cute little platform puzzler, but the later levels are real tough!

Re: TV Series

I'm not all that much of a TV person anymore, but my house is crammed with VCRs and DVDs. I'm a huge fan of Duckman, Count Duckula, Blackadder, The Simpsons, Are You Being Served?, Not The Nine O'Clock News, and Jonathan Creek. But I didn't like the last Creek special from last Christmas, that had t...

Re: Geeks everywhere!

You're a comic book geek also BBP? Oh yeah! I'm a terrible collector of a lot of things, but as comic books started from an early age I'd definitely say that that is taking over the house most. (well, along with my collection of CD-Is, VHSs, games, dictionaries, language courses, musical instrument...

Re: Employers looking at Facebook

Not sure if FaceBook would be the first site to point fingers at for possible privacy breech: the security cameras can do a lot of work too, and it's a lot easier to avoid putting sensitive information on FB than it is to avoid the cameras without getting noticed. As far as I know, most security ca...
