I'm replaying Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time. I forgot how fun this game is. I love Arthur and his colorful commentary, and I love all the interesting historical information. happydance

Yesterday I started my replay of Ankh 2: Heart of Osiris and tonight I started a replay of Sentinel: Descendants in Time in my XP machine. I have to get used to the movement in the game as it makes me a little nauseous but I remember really liking this game. I only played a very short time, just long enough to get me to my first location. (Probably 5 minutes of play time that took me 45 minutes.) Whoo Hoo!

TJL, hope you are enjoying your replay of Testament of Sherlock Holmes

flotsam, I hope you're enjoying Riven (another game I need to replay).

Tristy, I hope you're enjoying Journeyman Project 2

Mad, are you back playing yet at all?

Thanks oldbroad, yes I really do! It is totally different experience with smooth graphics on 27" screen. As I played I began to remember the main part of the story but there are also lots of little things I have forgotton in 4+ years. So it feels like half new.

Maybe I just start re-playing all my 200+ games from start again. No need for any new ones, ever. Just kidding! But certainly I will re-play some of them, now having started.

Enjoy your plays and re-plays, everyone! smile

Timo

Testament of Sherlock Holmes is a fine game dance
I played it a couple of months ago and had a great time wave

I seem to be in the mood for sequels now. I have a new game I have to focus on, but if/when I have time in between, I think I'm going to replay Runaway 2: Dream of the Turtle and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. The latter is probably going to take me forever to get through, as it's roughly a 25 hour game. grin

TJL, I go through a long list of games that I like to replay, too, going all the way back to King's Quest I. lol That sounds like a great plan to me. grin

venus,

I finished my The Testament of Sherlock Holmes re-play today. Liked it very much and the end scene with Beethoven's 7th playing on background almost brought tears in my eyes.

Now I'm thinking of re-playing Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened which introduced me to the motion sickness! Until I realised what was going on I became so sick that I threw up and had to play rest of the game in short periods. The remastered version has option to switch between first and third person gameplay which I hope to solve the problem.

I also bought whole Black Mirror trilogy from GOG summer sale for re-play. I think my originals are DVD versions and wanted to make it sure they run on Windows 10.

Does any of you know if there is a non-disk version of Scratches that runs of Windows 10? I liked the atmosphere of the game very much when playing it years ago but I was never able to finish it on Windows XP because of crash to desktop every time I entered one room near the end of the game.

I seem to spend more than half the time I allow for playing games, re-playing those I very much like.
Simply because I like them so much !! happydance

So when I'll ever get to the bottom of my stack of "not yet played's" (which will no doubt hold even more goodies to treasure) who the heck knows ????

But what a great way to "carry on regardless" lol

TJL - The Awakened gave me motion sickness also and to top it off the whole game was distorted because of some Nvidia something or other (can't remember quite what it was) that I should have downloaded or updated or something. At first I thought the game was supposed to look that way but eventually figured out that it shouldn't. I played it anyway and wondered why everybody liked it so much. I have the remastered version now but still haven't felt like a replay of it. I never made it through Nemesis which was also giving me motion sickness, but also because the computer I was playing in broke down and I never had it fixed. Have not felt like attempting it again. The Sherlock Holmes game I SHOULD play but haven't is Jack the Ripper. It is a story line I really like but for some reason still never played the game. I hope you enjoy other future replays just as much. For me, some are better and some not as good. I don't find that remembered "atmosphere" really holds up on the replays.

venus - I liked the Runaway games but 7 years after playing the 2nd game it still TICKS me off that it ended on a cliffhanger. Had I known that (which maybe I would have if I had read any reviews) I would not have chosen to play it at the time I did. And then the 3rd game didn't even close the cliffhanger up as far as I can remember. That kind of ruined the series for me but someday I will probably replay it all.

TJL, wow, sorry about your motion sickness! I've only played The Awakened in 3rd person, as the remastered version was already out by the time I got it. I have no idea if I'd have the same experience, but it sounds terrible. Hope your replay is much better! I agree, Testament was great; I think it was the best of the series. Enjoy the Black Mirror trilogy! It's a great series as well. smile

Mad, I know what you mean. lol At least you'll never run out of games to play. grin

Oldbroad, I can understand that. I really enjoyed the 2nd Runaway, as it was the longest, and I didn't mind that it ended on a cliffhanger that much at the time, as I was pretty sure they would continue. The 3rd game was good, but it was my least favorite of the series, as it was much shorter, and Sushi wasn't featured at all. Part of me really wanted Brian to end up with her, as I thought they were a better match. lol I did end up finally liking Gina as a character in the 3rd game, though, so it had that going for it. smile At least Runaway concluded its story. The Book of Unwritten Tales may never get a 3rd part, and it really needs one. I don't regret playing the game, as it's really good, but it's a shame that it ended the way it did. I definitely recommend Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper. Personally, it's my second favorite of the series after Testament.

I got motion sickness with the 1st person version of The Awakened. After the 3rd person version was released, I replayed it and the 3rd person view fixed the motion sickness problem. There are however a few points in the game where you may want to briefly switch to 1st person to orient yourself or examine something.
