What did the rodent (or the snake) ever do to Indy? What an unscrupulous thing to do!!!
Well we all know how Indie feels about snakes.

Oh.

Disney canceled the next sequel to Tron, I'm still digesting that!

omg... Indy showed literally no emotion when they found the frozen body of Heimdal, he seemed amused and even joked about it! The man is a complete sadistic sociopath!!

Just finished Fate of Atlantis! As always, Indy showed a total disregard for the well being of animals by hunting a crab using a human rib cage - then again, he shows a total disregard for humans too, at least he's a democratic man, everyone's equally worthless for him! I really liked the game, the first time I finished it I didn't bring Sophia because she got on my nerves with that whole "not if you're going to yell" business while Indy was holding the cage door - makes me think that these games are sometimes a bit stereotypical towards women... but they're stereotypical towards men too, so, whatever!

But anyway a great game and I enjoyed every moment of it! Most puzzles were well designed and challenging and the story was very appealing, I through I would take much longer to finish it, because I never use walkthroughs with adventure games, but it all went quite well. Should definitely be in the top 10 of adventure gaming!

Sounds like a pretty glowing review!

I only finished this game once, and I asked Sophia to come along, because she seemed like a pretty useful ally. ;)

I think that the game is tougher if Indy goes it alone, which may be why he comes across as a sociopath. In the "Sophia" route, he is much more genteel. ;)

Team Route is considered "easy mode," Fists Route is considered "action mode" (which replaces most puzzles with action sequences instead), and Wits Route is considered "difficult mode."

Hmm, just wondering... is it Indy or Indie? I always thought it was Indy, because Indie would be the non-commercial game studios... right? ;)

Then again, Indy sounds a little like the car race... :P
