Re: Game: "Let's NOT write a Sierra related kickstarter!"

Oh dear. :lol: So "The Phantom Menace" has nothing to do with Star Wars, in this case. And why is Gabriel Knight in Lost Wages anyway? What's he doing so far from Louisiana? =\ I'm no expert on US geography, but I'm pretty sure that N'Orleans and Los Vegas are on opposite sides of the country (almos...

Re: You Know You Played Too Much..... (Sierra)

... you start writing knock-offs, like Torin's Massage. :P You know you've played way too much Police Quest 4 when ... (... when you start referring to it as Rodney King's Quest? :? Apparently that's what the half-joke-half-serious-jibe at Sierra was at the time, at least according to Josh Mandel). :(

Re: You Know You've Played Too Much (General)

... you know what it's about. Which I don't. :( So a google later ... um. When you start quoting it in real life, and in situations which have nothing to do with a space-opera action adventure? (And the phrase "space opera action-adventure" sounds like three games to me, but whatever). ;) You know y...

Rath is literally 2 for 2 of "Oh, drat. Police Quest. Never played it. Is it __________?"
"Yes!"

LOL! :) It's only PQ3 and PQ4 I haven't yet finished.

The Google-fu is strong with that one.

PQ4 question ...

... all right, so I've done the alley scene, the first scene at the Parker Centre, and the scene at the County Morgue. At the Morgue, I: - showed my badge to Sherry; - entered - talked to Russ - got Bobby Washington's personal belongings, - talked to Sam, and - clicked the notebook on Sam and on Hic...

PQ3 question...

... so I've done the beginning bit, i.e. given the briefing, interviewed Morales, got my computer card. I went down to level 2 again, but nothing happens ... and I can't leave the building otherwise. I got my stuff from the locker, and I got the batteries and flares. What am I doing wrong? Any idea?...

Re: So ... what's the deal between dwarves and elves?

That's all right. I actually managed to find the answers with my google-fu. ;) The elves of Lothlorien were known as Galadhrim (or tree-people), elves of mixed descent. They were further divided into three groups: 1. Silvan Elves (also called Woodland Elves,"Wood-elves", or East-elves); 2. The Ñoldo...

Yeah, I got the same error. Oh, and guess what -- I'm still getting logged off from this board every two seconds. :x Bloody hell.

Re: Medusa to stand before the courts. (Warning: Nude Female Statue Image)

Prolific, perhaps -- but in some cases, extremely silly. :P I've seen so-called "alt-history" that involves the Aztec Emperor Montezuma stopping the Spanish Conquistadors by giving his Aztec warriors nukes and missile launchers. I've seen "alt-history" that gives the Anglo-Saxons tanks, or gives th...

Re: So ... what's the deal between dwarves and elves?

Hmm, interesting. So there are precedents for why the wood elves of Mirkwood are unfriendly to dwarves, and why the elves of Rivendell are not. :) Thanks, Tawm. Now I'm curious: if Thranduil's people are the wood elves, what kind of elves are Elrond's people? For that matter, what about the elves of...

Re: So ... what's the deal between dwarves and elves?

Hmm - you mean the Nazis? Not the whole world, surely. :) Hitler's Axis had plenty of allies, willing or unwilling. The Western Allies (led by China, the UK, Russia, and the USA) also had lots of allied countries, former Axis allies that were freed, and undercover agents (like the French Resistance)...
