I recently played a Halloween themed Casual game and it got me in the mood for Dracula, so I started a replay of Dracula Resurrection tonight. Love this game!

I am also attempting to play Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders for the first time ever.

I started Amber: Journeys Beyond yesterday. So far, so good!

Ob, I was also thinking of replaying Dracula: Resurrection this month.

Hey Candice and welcome!

Don't know if you have been watching and decided to comment or just found GB but you are in the right place. GB covers it all just look around

Mission Critical and Pegasus Prime are two of my most favorite games. Have played both over a few times

Dracula Resurrection was my favorite of the five. I loved walking around this scene. Can feel the cold, the wind and the erie vibes. Great Game!


It's never too late!

Marian, I've had Amber: Journeys Beyond installed for a good while now, with the shortcut icon on my desktop waiting to be clicked on. It was one of the games I planned to get to this year. I got it as an add-on from All Video many years ago and had it installed on a different computer back then but never played it.

Orion, those outdoor scenes have a lot of atmosphere. It doesn't hit me as strongly now, but I can still feel myself sitting in front of my computer absorbing that atmosphere, feeling like I was in those scenes the first time I played the game. I also love the second game Dracula The Last Sanctuary and will be replaying that one also, but probably not the others this time.

You are right oldbroad....... The Last Sanctuary was also very good. It had that same atmosphere as "Resurrection". Like you say you can have the rest of them. We did NOT like them. Never finished 3, The Path of the Dragon.

I am in the middle of Excavation of Hob's Barrow. What a great game. Can't wait to see how it unfolds. I purchased the Art Book and went through it before playing. Like you OB I usually won't get DLC's unless it adds to the gameplay. This was a good purchase. All the thought over the years that went into, character design, structures design, scenes themselves and even inventory items getting all to the final designs. It went from scatches on paper, more detailed scrathes on paper to first computer designs and finally to the finished product all along the way describing how and why these final designs got there. Absolutely amazing. When I got into the game I felt like I had already met the characters and have visited these sites and structures already. It was very cool. On with the game............

Orion, you are similar to me regarding The Path of the Dragon. It seems like a lot of people favored that game over the others but I didn't like it much. I did play it twice, hoping to like it better the second time but I didn't. The fourth and fifth games were good the first time I played them but not so much the second time.

I'm looking forward to Hob's Barrow but I know I'm not ready to play it just yet and didn't buy it, though I should have so it would be here if I decide I'm ready. Not very hard to click the buy button though if I get the itch smile. I'm glad you're enjoying the game and the art book!

My son and I just finished a game that we played together - Amazon: Guardians of Eden. Without his help, I would have had quite a difficult time getting through it - especially the canoe rides, which were quite tricky. We did enjoy the game overall, though. smile

I finished the two Dracula games. I forgot how hard the second game is and had to use a walkthrough quite a bit.

I've since started a replay of Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster which I've been wanting to replay for quite some time now. Haven't gotten very far at all yet. I also started a replay of the puzzle game Safecracker.

Just finished Quest for Glory 1 again. I have played this game several games and it never gets old. It's one of my favorites.

Oldbroad, we had played the game for about an hour or so and then while loading up the game in the emulator, the game would freeze. We attempted loading up the game several times after that, with the same results. We have put it aside for the time being until we feel like troubleshooting it. The part that we did play, we enjoyed. We did not get far enough, though, for me to offer a real opinion about it.

Thanks Marian. Hopefully, you can get it working and finish it at some point. As I mentioned, I have the game from All Video. I hope it works. I'll have to try it out soon.

I've recently finished Cleo - a pirate's tale and enjoyed it a lot. It's a beautiful charming story and I could feel the inspiration (and love) of classic p&c adventures while playing it. It's astonishing that this was created by a single person!
(If you want to enjoy the game as well, head over to the current GOG Halloween Sale.)

Last year after finishing Frankenstein and Safecracker, I played The Kite, Little Kite, Repentant, and Watch Over Christmas. I never did get around to re-starting Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders yet. This year I have played The Game Maker, Goodbye Deponia, and Kentucky Route Zero.

For a very long time I have wanted to replay the first three Atlantis games, mostly the second one which I loved. I only played it once and it must have been around fifteen years ago. I had all three games installed on my Windows 7 computer and in October I tried to start the first game Atlantis The Lost Tales, but didn't think it was working right. I think it was user error but my Win 7 sound doesn't always work properly so I installed the games on my Win 10. It took until tonight to finally try the game again. Thirty minutes later, my head was spinning around like crazy and I had to get out of the game. I can fairly clearly remember parts of the game but I don't remember getting seasick or the fact that it is auto save. thumbsdown I often play two adventures at a time so I hope whatever I click on to play along with this one won't disappoint me too. I'm starting to think I should give up gaming. (Kidding!)

Anyway, what are the rest of you playing?

I am really enjoying Atlantis: The Lost Tales despite the stupid auto save and some head spinning. I am a little better at gaming now than I was back when I first played the game so I am actually enjoying it more this time.

I may be stuck now though. I saw a clue to a puzzle but didn't realize it was a clue so didn't look at it properly, and can not see it again. I thought it was a puzzle going to pop up (not a clue). hardwall

I eventually figured out that there wasn't just one save in the Atlantis game and I was able to see that puzzle clue again. I thoroughly enjoyed my replay of the game. Then I moved on to an enjoyable second replay of Syberia. I will replay the second and third games before playing the fourth game.

The other game I played is Deponia Doomsday, the fourth and final game of a horrible series. I was so disappointed with it (the whole series). There were some good and different puzzles but the characters and dialog were awful, long, and boring. My Opinion only! Glad that's over with.

Next up is a replay of Beyond Atlantis (Atlantis 2) which I expect I will enjoy as much as I did the first time I played it. yes

Thanks for sharing, Ana and Mad! Those are both in my libraries.

No adventure going on Marian?
