I don’t know, that guy seems a bit too smart.


#63

He only thinks he´s smart, alcohol makes you self-concious.


#64

I wish I could do the same. The closest I got in my recent playthrough of Fate of Atlantis was the realization that I’d either never played all the way through the Fists path, or forgot the puzzles unique to that particular path.

It should be nice to gather all these parallel images in a permament thread. There are several of this kind, scattered here and there.

What I remember him saying is that he usually sees pictures that are altered in a way so they clook more similiar to each other than they actually are. I agree that it is a heavy stretch since almost none of the details match.

It was a concert so of course it was dark when I left. :slight_smile:

Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, the rather less satisfying second SCUMM game.”

That’s blasphemy!

I thought Zak was more satisfying, even though Maniac Mansion felt more like you were in a living world.

But above all, even though they are pre-Monkey Island there aren’t that many 30-year-old games that hold up that well.
