so our mega-session is over, it was great fun.
We started our session Friday night at 11pm and played
Stanley Parable for two hours - just to warm up for the days to come
On Saturday we started playing Sentinel - Descendants of Time.
We played the game the whole day until midnight and continued on Sunday.
Jochen had a great run and finished the game on Sunday 1pm,
while I got stuck on 2 locations because i did not pay close attention
and needed almost the whole Sunday to finish it.
Because Jochen finished it earlier, he played The Witness until i was also finished with
Sentinel (Jochen had only played The Witness 1,5 hours before, so he basically started
playing The Witness on Sunday 1pm)
Sunday night, when i had finished Sentinel, Jochen stopped playing The Witness and
we both had a look at Zork, Grand Inquisitor (Jochen stopped The Witness because
we prefer to play the same game simultaneously, even though
each of us plays at his own NB, so we don't play a game on one NB as a team) It looked nice,
but somehow we were not in the mood for such kind of a game, so we switched to Xing.
Xing looked really beautiful, we played it for 2 hours i think and then i went to bed.
On monday morning, our last gaming day, for some reason i got motion sick by playing Xing
(i think i was too tired after two days of gaming so i was more prone to it),
so we stopped playing it. As there was not enough time to start a complete new game
and finish it on the one remaining day (it was 10:30 am or so), we decided as an exception that Jochen would
continue with The Witness and i would play Monkey Island 3, which is basically
the only remaining game of the popular classical point' and click games i never played.
I liked MI 3, but not enough to not resort to a walkthrough when i got stuck
(When i really like a game very much, i almost never use a walkthrough, but with MI 3, i was
not willing to spent several hours of my life figuring out to use object x with object y
by just trying every combination because there is no logical clue what to do)
Jochen was very impressive again and finished The Witness at 1:30am
(on monday he played it 14 hours in a row, with no break except eating, drinking and peeing ;-)
and i finished MI 3 a couple of minutes later.
We had a great time, we liked Sentinel very much, but definitely think its
a level below Schizm 1, Rhem-series and Myst-series. And of course, just as i did,
Jochen liked The Witness very much, we think its a very special game
(i played and solved it a couple of weeks ago alone)
Thanks again for your recommendations!
