So, re: Manhunter, is it like police quest or Iceman where there’s a ridiculous focus on procedure, or is it more interesting/forgiving?

thanks for the bubbles added over the photo we haven’t seen Roberta’s Nipples.

I think the bigger picture is that the couple is liberal enough, not being narrow minded and gave full to the project.
I mean they could have hired models and such , but no , lets shoot in our house and do it ourselves. Thats inspiring couple.

The order is going to be semi-random, son’t want to play all the best ones first. I’ll get to Woodruff (I hope…)

Never played Iceman and barely remember Police Quest, from what I’ve played from Manhunter so far there isn’t much focus on procedure. The adventure part is not very hard, just the arcade sequences.

I recall reading an interview with Al Lowe, who said that the waiter got the job pretty much because he was gay and the only man around the hubbies were comfortable enough hanging around the ladies during the shoot.

Lol! It keeps getting better (but you have to wonder if that’s not just Al Lowe messing around…)

Found this big article about the game release and controversy surround it.

Which are the stand outs for you?

i ve made a list before which/where i was trying to *very objective, but if you ask about my standouts, it could easily be those 9 ags but with no particular order really.

Space Quest IV
Police Quest II
Woodruff and the Schnibble
King’s Quest IV
Conquests of the Longbow
Leisure Suit Larry III
The Dagger of Amon Ra
QfG: So You Want to Be a Hero
LSL7: Love for Sail!

Thanks for that, what did you think of KQ7.

Out of interest did you play them when they first came out or retrospectively?

Finished Manhunter: New York

It gets better as it goes along.
Day 3 is the best one, lots of investigation puzzles and it’s when the story the expected twist. Some gruesome images and not many annoying arcade sequences.

Day 4 is comprised has some of those but remembering that it’s possible to save in the middle on any sequence and it’s doable. Kind of surprised the last sequence involves bombing New York monuments.

And it ends on a cliffhanger, so on to San Francisco!

it has some great hotspots; some chapters are magnificent esp Not Chapter one! , but anywys the game has some ridiculous dead ends that can make one curse upon, not mention the heroes slow movement that with the must-always-done backtracking can get very boring esp near the end.. but generally i liked it, the graphics themselves were a break thru.. comes 3-4th of the best KQ(s)

i remember there are two versions of of KQ7, the 1.4 earlier had two practically parts were you have to start the chapters all over again, the version 2.0. which released 1998 omits those parts.

Oh man, that’s quite surprising, considering all those obscure games you’ve played. Generally, a lot of the early Sierra games look like “fuck you"s to the player, and Iceman is one of the worst of the bunch. I’ll be eagerly waiting for you to reach it (though there are several other games I’m interested in your opinion about, too).

There’s the Dr Brain series too. I loved Castle of Dr Brain as a kid. It’s more of an educational games with a bunch of puzzle but for completion sake… (plus it’s better than iceman)

I didn’t have the patience to play those games growing up, just couldn’t handle lack of mouse and multiple deaths/dead ends so I just ignored a lot of them.
Now it’s different and I’ve been meaning to play some for some time, so nothing like a new year resolution…

I think I played oen of them but though they were more about edutainment with not much story, but sure, I’ll add them.
