I am still waiting for MaG's walkthrough on life itself but I am not in a hurry to get to the end of that game!

Hi smile

Although I do use walkthroughs if I get really stuck, I try to leave them inconvenient to get at ....

Firstly I don't print one out grin

Then I keep it so that if I DO need to access a walkthrough I must "quit the game" to go look at it eek

So obviously, I never allow myself to use that "oh so tempting" Game/Desktop Tab ....

It all helps lol

Cheers.

Mad wave

Sometimes a UHS type guide is quite useful. I like the concept, just that sometimes, I feel like using them is a brand new pixel hunt for answers. And if the game has a lot of optional gameplay, alternate path -- endings or is non-linear, a detailed save points list is brilliant. Save here! is one of the most useful tips I have gotten for more than a few games. laugh Doesn't tell you what to do - just here are the places where things branch off is the point.

Most of the time, I lurk my way over to a busy hints forum. Since most posters are aware of the need to shield outright spoilers, it's a great way to get the nudge I need and no more.

Then of course for more complete stuckness, I always look for..

all the rest are mere walkthroughs. laugh

I love--walkthroughs, especially MaG's.
If I can't find one to fit the game I want to play, I won't buy the game.
I usually try to find two different ones for each game, if I can.
I love following the directions & still have to ask for help sometimes!
I also read the GameBoomers help forum alot, usually if others are having to ask for help, I will have trouble in the same place & it saves me from asking for help.
So MaG as time consuming & troubling it is to do, please, please never stop writing them. I need you!!
Thanks,
Jtiffin

Good Questions, I like walkthroughs that are good at explaining the setting, and making observations, so that, I can stop get a hint from it, before going through a step by step to do list,
I have also had the same experience as you, and left even more
frustrated when I still couldnt understand, how they come to the conclusion to do the steps...
would love to see more walkthroughs that set the stage, and give the inside workings of the mind that take you to the solution, I think I have seen alot of them like that at the game boomers site,
I love that most the walk throughs I only need a sentance or part of one, just to get me over the slump, sometimes its just pointing out how to look at what is there,and that gets me thinking, and solving the problem myself....

I appreciate the walkthroughs, they make games possible for me, I am not always understanding the way to go.. wink

I alway's look for Mag's walkthrough's also,I print it out before I start the game.I try to play as much as I can before I have to look at it grinI also like TLC walkthroughs they both do a great job of explaining what to do,not just pointing it out! wave

I play the game on one computer and pull up the W/T on the other computer when I need it. (like most of the time LOL) I've really messed up a lot of games early on by doing things out of order. I love to play games, not go crazy when I'm stuck for hours or days. At this point, I wait to see that there is a W/T before I even buy a game.
