Ever since there are regular flights from the Netherlands (Eindhoven) to Carcassonne I go to the area of Limoux almost every year for a week or so / high mountain climbing; top of the Bugarach, top of the Cardou, and Blanchefort which is only reachab...

Re: New "Sierra" intro at Sierra.com...

The difference is the Mario and Mickey Mouse were actively used as mascots for their respective brands for many years (up until the present). Mario has appeared in around 200 games. If you watched children's entertainment or played Nintendo games, it's basically inevitable that you'd become familia...

Re: GK3 on Windows 8

Do we have any results in just yet on the Windows 8 thing? Otherwise, I can maybe hijack a friend her laptop to try.

Took me a while to figure out (as you can imagine), but hey, it's another Gabriel Knight mystery solved.

Re: Gabriel Knight - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

Superb! Well like I said, it wasn't so much the overhearing that blocked the refreshment-revolution, it was the going over to the table and the smalltalk at that point that made it impossible.

Re: Gabriel Knight - Where Am I From? Screen Capture Game.

Are they by any chance the stones above the fireplace from GK2?

[offtopic]Great! was it fruitful? Did Grace say that line about Mosely? Were you able to block the revolution conversation? Oh, and the Asmodeus / lightbulb quote, did that pop up if you didn't look at the chessboard? :) [/offtopic]

Re: Gabriel Knight 1 Remake (MGX)

You are correct. I don't mind the interface / controls right now probably because I overplayed the game, but a few weeks back I let a newbie play it, and man was THAT frustrating and tiresome to see. I was like "isn't it obvious how it works", but of course it isn't. Being an invisible character you...

Re: Gabriel Knight 1 Remake (MGX)

Even at the time GK3 was released, the graphics were outdated and given the false perception that "3D equals FPS" that many Adventure gamers had back then, it's little wonder why they disliked it. KQ8 pretty much confirmed the "3D equals FPS" illusion, what more proof does anyone need than a badly ...
