MacGyver Style Bomb - 2010-04-01 In case you forgot how much of a hack and a bitch Roberta Williams was.
poorwill - 2010-04-01 King's Quest III is the game that really started the preposterously stupid puzzles and unfair bullshit that apexed with V, but it's also probably the best game in the series. There's a decent VGA-style fan remake that ditches the text input for point and click which improves the game a lot.
Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2010-04-02 If you read her Wikipedia entry it says she's most proud of Phantasmagoria out of all the games she created. How fucked up is that!
Harveyjames - 2010-04-01 I like how his 'wizard death' animation is reused from Space Quest, and his character is just a pallette-swapped Leisure suit Larry
glasseye - 2010-04-02 Darn those bandits and their treehouses.
KnowFuture - 2010-04-02 Main way to lose: have the sound turned on. Jesus.
Played at least the first 2 KQ games on the Apple //e and all it had was that crappy little built-in tweeter speaker and I don't think it was even an option to change the volume or turn the sound off and I still don't remember it being this annoying.
duck&cover - 2010-04-02 The game seems to dwell lovingly on your falling and cracking your skull.
Nikon - 2010-04-02 Some of those, like self-pwing due to drinking nightshade juice, didn't seem entirely unfair.
Desidiosus - 2010-04-02 Same with the cat on the stairs. I work with someone who constantly trips over her cat, though she tells me the sound effects are nothing like the game.
Harveyjames - 2010-04-02 At 1:35 he trips over the cat on an occasion where the cat didn't even appear.
jangbones - 2010-04-02 we're all too busy dying, kid
