Thanks, Mad. Glad you're enjoying Blade Runner. I've never played it before, so I'm sure I'd struggle through that part you're referring to. lol It looks like an excellent game, from what I've seen. Good luck with that section when you get there. grin

Oldbroad, Dreamfall and Dreamfall Chapters are two different games. Chapters is actually my favorite of the series because I think it has the most in depth characters and world building as a whole. Just exploring and talking to the characters was so much fun for me, as there were so many little touches that made the world(s) feel alive. There were some plot points I didn't like in the end, but those were (relatively) minor when compared the things I especially enjoyed.

I think the second game, Dreamfall, actually has the best plot in the series, but since characters matter to me more, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the other two, although I still think it's a fantastic entry in my favorite series. The only reason I can breeze through the action sequences now is because I've played the game so many times, I have them memorized. lol Plus, I skip the combat whenever I have the option. evil In general, I'm terrible at action sequences and prefer they not be included. I'll put up with them if I have to, in order play a game that interests me, though.

April will always remain my favorite protagonist of the series, though Zoe came a lot closer after Chapters, and Kian is way up there for me as well now. smile

Have fun with Return to Mysterious Island 2, even if it isn't a replay! grin Have you played the originals?

Hi venus. I know that Dreamfall and Chapters are two different games. I didn't make a mistake when I said I didn't like Chapters too much, although, I didn't actually like Dreamfall as much the second time I played it as the first time. So far I've only played Chapters one time.

Thanks regarding RMI2 but what do you mean by "Have you played the originals?" Plural? I just recently played the first game. I don't know of any other ones.

Honestly, I'm surprised that people like Dreamfall more than Chapters, but to each their own. yes Chapters seemed much more "adventure gamer" friendly than Dreamfall to me, due to the (somewhat) more challenging puzzles and the lack of action sequences. Also, as I said, I just found it more in depth character wise. They wrote Zoe and Kian the way I'd wished they'd written them in Dreamfall. I felt they were finally as fleshed out as April had been in the first game.

Sorry, I wondered if I'd made a mistake. lol I don't really play first person games, so I'm not familiar with the series. I thought maybe there was a Mysterious Island, a Return to Mysterious Island, and then a Return to Mysterious Island 2. Looks like I was wrong. grin Enjoy the sequel, regardless. thumbsup

Well, that's part of why I plan to one day replay Chapters even though I didn't care for it too much. I may have been frustrated by some things and maybe in a replay I will like it better. Some day, maybe, I'll find out. wink

I thought maybe I was the one who was missing something (regarding Mysterious Island).

Now I finally did it! Started re-playing a game first time in my gaming history covering over 200 games. Today I started re-playing The Testament of Sherlock Holmes.

The main motivation for doing so is that when I played it the first time in January 2014 I had less powerful PC with GTX 260 graphics card and running Windows XP. I often experienced black screen, screen stuttering or crash to desktop which took away great part of the fun while fearing some hiccup to happen all the time.

Now I have a more capable PC which already is 2.5 years old though but it runs the game smooth with max graphics on WQHD (2560x1440) screen. Only vague memories of the opening and tutorial scene returned to my mind when I started playing it but I believe I'll have much more fun with the game that I had back then.

TJL, we're both re-playing Sherlock Holmes games. thumbsup I'm replaying Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, as I've only played it once. It's a lot of fun, although I still think the one you are playing, Testament, is the best of the series. thumbsup Glad you're able to enjoy it properly now. woot

Excellent reason to replay the game TJL. Have fun with it!

I'm currently replaying the Ankh series, close to the end of the first game.

Thanks Sheriff

At least there is hope. I am a bit confused with the article...Is The Room: Old Sins actually Room 4 since they say they are still working on that?

The Room: Old Sins is the 4th in the series. It was released shortly after that update on Room 3 going to PC.

They released the Amazon/Kindle version of 4 at the end of May so I believe 4 is all released now on various mobile devices. I hope that means they can focus on the porting of the PC versions.
