Kristi (sp?), Kate's fiance was Dan, and yeah, I though he was a jerk too. I was thinking, "what a WHINER!"..Also, Zack from The Longest Journey was an idiot. He thought he was all that...PAH!

Oh thanx, Tsavorite! Dan, that's right...yeah, he was pretty annoying. Kate's much better off without him. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Winslow in Black Dailia was smug and annoying, but we do get to see him get his later, but YES! Kate's fiance Dan! I yelled at the screen more than once "Would you please throw that d*** cellphone down a hole somewhere!" He obviously gets free long distance

AGREED! For one, I got tired of going around with a flashlight, but the precipitating annoyance was that, after trying for quite a while, I still hadn't solved that Knights problem on the truncated chess board. That plus the fact that I had quite enough of Stauf in 7th GUEST caused me to put it aside. Who knows, if I get desperate I might take it up again, but I'm going to have to get pretty desperate. laugh

My thoughts exactly.

That suggests an idea. Adventure games don't have the same expansions as do RPGs (I can only think of realMyst with its Rime Age.)

How about Adventure expansions where you can choose the game character of your choice and have them dunked in a vat of baked beans, or sent to a Trappist monastery, or given rocket powered roller skates as a reward for finishing the game? There's not enough imagination around nowadays.

Mir Yannick, the Grand Inquisitor"Iam the boss of you!" got so sick of hearing that I could have screamed. (probably has to do with my dislike of authority figures) rolleyes
I also liked Arthur in Journeyman 2&3. He added great humor to the game IMO. thumbsup
This isn't an AG, but Winston, the butler in Tombraider 2 that pops up sometimes just about drove me crazy with his rattling glasses and tray. I shut him in the bathroom in Nightmare in Vegas. laugh

ooMiFoo,
I didn't hate Stauf, except when I was lost in the maze the first time. Feeling looooooooonly? Once would have been enough, but not every time I came to a dead end. eek

Having finished The Black Mirror I have to go even more strongly with Samuel Gordon. Could elaborate my reasons but would amount to spoilers. All of you who who completed the game know where I'm coming from. I think dispicable could be added to just obnoxious. Fantastic ending !!! You agree

I'm in Chapter 5 in Black Mirror and starting to form some theories of my own about Samuel. I am so curious as to whether my theories are correct that I'm finding it hard to be patient enough to deal with the puzzles. Who wants to mess about with the plumbing when you're starting to have serious questions as to whether the game's hero is...um, well, never mind.

At least the puzzles continue and forward the game to new plot links Becky and not just puzzles for the sake of having puzzles. Keep on with some real surprises and questions await you.
