Game or not... it's good to be here at our worldwide GameBoomers Halloween party (as I sit here at the kitchen table listening to Art Bell's Spooky Matter Halloween Ghost Stories Show on SiriusXM). And we still have the Days of the Dead (Dias de los Muertos) to keep the spooky feeling going for a couple of days more.
Hi. I got an ophthalmic migraine shortly after downloading the game so I still haven't checked it out. I do see that I have an icon "A Halloween Haunting" on my desktop. I'll give it a try in a bit. Terri
When you live in the past, it costs you the present.
The announcement of the Halloween Haunting and delay again to the release of The Last Crown affected me in a different way to that which it seems to have affected most people here. I fully appreciate Jonathan and the team may have no choice and I don't feel anything against them, only admiration and thanks for the splendid games they have produced. However, that announcement for me was a tipping point. I no longer look forward to the game with the thrilled anticipation I had. I've sort of written it off. Yes, I'll probably buy it if it comes out but I'm not looking out for it. I feel very much the same way if I delay a meal for too long. I "get past it" and no longer feel hungry.
You have to pay for everything you get - and it isn't money alone you have to pay. If i need to pay with waiting, sobbing, wailing for a wonderfull game like Lost Crown and the Dark Fall games, it's ok with me. I'm ready to give my best sighs.
Waiting without a schedule or a given release date isn't that bad. But giving empty promises is. We loyal Jonathan Boakes fans have patiently waited for years for the Crown trilogy to complete. Last spring finally gave us a schedule and the release date for the second act. Then it was taken from us but for good reasons we could understand and accept especially when we were promised to get something to comfort us - The Halloween Haunting. But then the Halloween came - and went. We got tricked - all we got was lousy 3 minutes ending the same way every time no matter what we choose to ask. I wonder if we will ever see that Halloween Haunting now when the time went by already. It could have been a big hit and boost for the Crown Trilogy. Now the full potential is lost forever. I advertised this Halloween Haunting to my two friends who have never been playing serious adventure games before. I did that because The Lost Crown is without any doubt the best adventure game I have ever played and I have played tons of them. Now my friends also got disappointed and unfortunately I came part of that due to listening empty promises. I could never believe to this kind of scam we see now.
