Re: The DOSBox Thread

DOSBox is a godsend. Slows down the games to run right, and allows me to run them on my Macbook without having to resort to VMware to do it.

WOOT WOOT DOSBox!!!

Re: Best Sierra's Musical Score

The soundtracks I listen the most (therefore my favs and what I think are best) are SQ4, LSL3, PQ3 and LSL5. The opening movie/track of KQ5 is really good too - they made up for the bad voices with excellent music. Jones in the Fast Lane isn't bad either, but they're most snippets because the tracks...

Re: Your favorite Leisure Suit Larry Game and Why?

Haven't played 7 yet ... have it, just haven't played it. another thing to add to my need-to-play when I get into DOS mode. I'd have to say my favorite is LSL3 ... nice long story without being bogged down, the flip to Patti in the second half was original, the soundtrack is great. I liked 5 too, bu...

Because it's a forum (and I apparently like to hear myself type) - I am going to probe you (ewww, not like that! That kind of humor is for the Space Quest forum!) - and ask what you disliked about KQ7! Well, a lot of people complained about the graphics, but i didn't think they were bad. Just unexp...

Re: Blue Force.

i started playing it but nuked my Windows box and never reinstalled it. For what I did play, i thought it did have that classic PQ feel to it and was well done. I almost wish it was a parser game tho, that shield control for the icons was a little hokey to me. would have been better with the icons a...

KQ5. I loved Cedric! <ducks, runs> This ones a little harder to nail down a favorite. KQ3 was the first one I played (the only sierra quest series I didn't start at the beginning) so it has a special place. KQ4 was cool because of the length and complexity of it all and the new graphics and sounds. ...

Re: Favorite Police Quest Game and Why?

id have to go with PQ3 as well (altho the last two times ive played it that stupid map puzzle never works and i get fed up). I liked PQ1 (both) and PQ2 as well very much. Hated PQ4 -- because it was Gates and not Walls writing it, the whole dynamic of the game changed and I never got into it. I coul...
