But honestly, this game is so crazily packed with jokes, it’s almost difficult to find a moment when it’s not hilarious 😀September 14, 2018 at 7:56 pm in reply to: Favourite Gags and Jokes? Heavy spoilers, potentially :-p #1894
The little cutscene when Stan hands you the ship is really great.
I recorded a video of it:
It would be cool to have an RPG in an upcoming month (January?)!
I’ve played *loads* of Dark Sun by the way. It’s a really cool game. I haven’t played so much other RPGs. I’d love to dive into Krondor or Ultima, but also maybe one of the Might & Magic games would be interesting? Or Dune 1 possibly? Fallout is also a big one of course, but maybe too mainstream (we’ve covered a lot of big games recently).
If anyone has anymore suggestions, that would be great!
Wow, so you played all the… let me count… 10 Monkey Island games? That’s counting each chapter of the “Tales” games as a separate game.
I’ve never really played Curse or Escape myself, nor the Tales. It’s interesting to hear you enjoyed the Telltale series, I might check those out myself.
I’m currently playing through the sequel and I must admit… I’m enjoying it less than the original. The original is so fully packed with jokes and silliness, it’s just great. The sequel feels more tedious, where you constantly have to move between places to get a little further with the intricate puzzles. It’s not unfunny though, definitely still very good.
I think they felt maybe Secret was too easy and they wanted to offer the player more of a challenge? I don’t know, but for me the original is still absolutely fantastic. It all works so well and is so unbelievably goofy, it’s really great.
Wow, that’s amazing. I suppose the sound isn’t vital for beating the game, but the music is really great though and provides tons of atmosphere.
Playing the game some more this morning, I realised how cinematic it actually is. Most point & click adventure games are quite static, but there are quite a few dramatic scenes and even some interesting camera angles and such things going on in this game. I don’t think I had realised that before.
Oooooh, I think I actually tried playing this game a bit relatively recently. I don’t remember a whole lot about it, but I think I found it a bit too unintuitive to play it for longer.
But I’d love to dive in properly and check this game out for real. I mean, it does seem intriguing!
