RPG sale gong on at GOG, for those who are interested. :) I have a few RPGs, but I thought I'd pick up this one:

The Age of Decadence

...and its companion...

Dungeon Rats

...because I like RPGs and I like ancient Rome. ;) Plus, they're both on sale. Win-win! :)

Take a look. They look pretty decent. :D

GOG sale of Sierra/LucasArts games ... what's your view?

Post by Rath Darkblade » Fri Oct 16, 2020 8:59 am

... well, there's GOG a sale Sierra/LucasArts games again. ;) Some that caught my eye are:

1. The Dig
2. The Police Quest series
3. The Colonel's Bequest
4. The Last Express

Of these, I've played only PQ1 and 2 to completion. I don't think I ever got started with PQ3, and never seen PQ4. Are they "worth" seeing? All I know about them is that they are divisive -- i.e. some fans thought they were fantastic, others thought they were horrible. What's your view? :)

I haven't played "The Dig", but I'm a big fan of Michael Land's music. :) He wrote the music for most of the games in the LucasArts "Golden Age" period - Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max Hit the Road, Full Throttle. Grim Fandango. Most of the Star Wars games of the 90s and 2000s. Plus, dialogue by Orson Scott Card. :D What's your view of this game?

I haven't yet played "The Last Express" either, but I like the pre-WW1 era depicted in the game. I don't often see an indie game I like, but I'm definitely onto this one. Have you played it? What did you think? :)

Lastly, "The Colonel's Bequest" ... hum. I know that it uses the same "time slot" mechanics that were used in GK2, GK3 and Laura Bow 2 (and LSL2, to a lesser extent -- i.e. on the ship). Personally, I'm not a big fan of the "time slot" mechanic because, if I don't know what I'm doing (and I probably won't without a hintbook or a walk through), I'll just blunder through, get to a late stage of the game (perhaps), and then find out that I'm stuck. :( Was this your experience?

Just wondering ...
