Re: RIP Gary Owens...

I didn't know until a few days ago. RIP Gary you will not be forgotten. Also I have been reading some posts about SpaceVenture where one person he will play the game because of Gary being in the game but the sad news of it is that he passed away before he got to record any lines.

Re: King's Quest by the Odd Gentlemen (Trailer inside!)

Episodic starts smelling like a self-fulfilling prophecy. You don't develop a full game because you are risking a larger investment, so you minimize the risk by releasing in episodic, but in doing so, increase the likelihood of failure. Also to me that Episodic style games remind me of some console...

Re: King's Quest by the Odd Gentlemen (Trailer inside!)

Which is why I think episodic is potentially not as good of a strategy as some marketing people think. I wonder if this is a strategy formed for a younger demographic than what this game will have. I think that the bulk of the audience will be the adults that grew up with the King's Quest games and...

Re: King's Quest by the Odd Gentlemen (Trailer inside!)

Episodic format is the main game broken up into several segments, so if you don't buy all of them, you don't get the full story. Which is why I won't be buying until it is finished. There is also the possibility that the game could go belly up before it is finished, whether Activision pulls funding...

Re: Curious blog post on adventure gaming seven deadly "sins"

The author does make some good points but about the 1st Sin is that some games now a days have alot of cinematics adventure or other genres of game either at the beginning or the end. I also agree that But thou must situations are not that bad. In some cases they can be funny in such as in Rambo or ...

Re: Cool and Interesting News & Such.

Well, I saw someone post this in the mamedev forums.

Re: XP Mode

Well I know this that I got alot of legacy software to work under XP mode such as my digital recorders that I used for school purposes due to no drivers for Windows 7. Also Xp mode is powerful enough to run all of the old CSI based adventure games. I also installed the Windows version of GK1 and 2 u...
