I have so many games, and yet no time. I keep buying games, and they keep piling up. I need to clone myself...

It's fun so far, just outwitted a guard dog. And got to use some Japanese!

In BS2 I'm on my way to find the other two stones and I noticed that Hubert played Invention 13 by Bach on his organ. Used to play that one myself.

Neat! :) It sounded familiar, but I couldn't quite place it. *heads over to YouToob to find it and listen again* ;)

Finished it... whew...
Think I would've liked it better if the graphics didn't glitch on me the way they did, that was a bit of a mood killer. Otherwise it's pretty fun! 8-)

True about the graphics glitch - I wanted to play more Broken Sword, but those glitches turned me off. :| Do you know if they happen in other BS games?

(Broken Sword, of course, not "the other" BS)... :P :twisted:

Broken Sword 3 ran well with no problems. I understand it's best to run the first two games through ScummVM.

Checked it out and found that the voice actor for George Stobbart, Rolf Saxon, also narrates the Teletubbies. 8-)

My replay of the game was kinda fun. At some point I found a pair of underpants towards the end, as Nico - played through everything after getting the undies, twice, but I still couldn't find where to use them.
The game's subtitle files can be read in NotePad, there turns out to be quite some unused material in it that's very interesting: the underpants turn out to appear at a point where I couldn't use them in game.
Also had a lot of, well, interest at trying to find out whether Emily's really a ghost or not - found a message of one of the writers on a messageboard: apparently she is.

What's the point of finding underpants in a game if you can't use them? *curious*

Is it simply a "just for the lolz/just for the evulz" moment?

There is text for it in the subtitle files, but it doesn't look like it was programmed in.

I recently replayed Evil Genius. What an incredibly fun game this is.
