Hey L4L,

Yes, it is the first Collector's Edition and the first time we have a strategy guide built into the game. You do not have to leave the game if you get stuck and want to know the answer.

Hugs,

Margie

Hi Margie,

Thanks for all the info. Been browsing all the “stuff” posted since I first saw the 1st post on the new MCF game an hour or so ago. “Very interesting…” but I am afraid that it may be taking too big a bite ($20 bucks, almost our entire budget for the month) out of our entertainment budget for a single game. Judy and I LOVE the MCF games, and have been looking forward to this release, but for the added benefit of having a built-in Strategy Guide (something that we never buy anyway…we always use the free T&T’s if we need them) and the other “extras” mentioned don’t really seem to add to the game itself. As of right now, we are probably going to have to wait the extra few weeks for the regular release.

I must say, though I understand the “marketing” reasons for doing this, am a bit disappointed in your boss (Picman) for promising one thing (a new MCF game by Thanksgiving) and then delivering another. No, I am not angry about it…just disappointed. The Gaming Industry has been using this same tactic/technique for many years and you can be sure that if Big Fish does it all of the other casual game developers will start doing the same thing and we will end up back at the $20 buck price point (or higher) for decent games. As usual, just one “old” man’s opinion.


Happy Gamming All,
OldMan44

It is a bit strange that it was delayed until December, and it is still claimed the $6.99 version is not ready-
however there is a version ready with bells and whistles for next week.

If the basic version is still being worked on I don't know what to think- how can this enhanced version be ready?
Confused indeed.

Well, I"m sure that both versions will be great when they are released and it is nice to have a choice of which version to get puppy

I know I'll be waiting with bells on for this one. It's a long weekend and I'm also off the following week as well and from what I hear about the game being loooooong, I'm so glad that I am. WOO HOO! YEAH!!! Can't wait for the 25th....

:)Whoo Hoo ! I am playing casebook snake in the grass, and worried because I don't have anything else like it to play and I am toward the end of the game. Dire sounds like it may be more like Casebook and oh I love the video format of the game. I will also be standing in line to buy Dire and hope it will be this week!

However many of credits it takes I am with Ana, and agree it is worth it from what I have viewed in the video.

Can anyone tell me if this will have Interactive Hidden objects when we find them we use them? I hope there is more interactive than just find the hidden object that doesn't even apply to the storyline. For instance finding plungers! lol

The gamezebo newsletter states that 2 versions will be available on BFG.


"We can finally share with you the release dates for Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove, the hotly anticipated sixth game in the Mystery Case Files hidden object/adventure series from Big Fish Games Studios. For the first time in the series' history, Big Fish Games will be releasing two different versions of the game: the Collector's Edition will launch on Nov. 25 for $19.99, followed by the standard version in early December which will sell for the usual $6.99."


So my question is What is the Collector's version?

Oh! I didn't see it. Will the Collector's Edition be a large file? I hope not as I only have a very slow dial up ISP and cannot download them on Big Fish.Large file games will not complete for some reason and anyway some may take up to 30 hours. I cannot tie up my phone line . My only hope is that the games in which I cannot download on BF will be available at Spintop where I can use my download manager(GetRight) and can pause a lot.

Penny, I think you can pause with the BFG game manager too. But in any case, I don't think it's a "large file" as in the large file adventure games. But, I certainly don't know that for sure wave

The game has quite a bit of FMV so I will guess it's a fairly large download. You can, as L4L stated, pause with the BFG Game/Download Manager.

I'm pretty sure I read BFG-Guy stating on the Big Fish forums that the MCF download would be approximately the size of Hidden Expedition Devil's Triangle and that the download is about 350 MB. But don't quote me on that. smile

Yes the game manager has a pause but in any large file game which I try to download whenever I pause it it goes back to the beginning of the download.Or it will get to 99% and then stop. Small file games load just fine. You see, my dial up ISP knocks me offline after about 8 hours so any large file game progress is lost.I have tried everything that customer service has suggested but to no avail. So what I usually do is buy the game with a back up disk. Then the game installs just fine.

I guess this question is in addition to Old Man's delving into what is added to the real game by the Collector's Edition. I guess I am asking if there will be more games, or more involvement, or more objects or more places to visit. OR is it the extras of stategy guide, screensaver pictures, etc.

Just asking, not judging. Thanks to anyone who can answer...

Jody, according to the BFG website, the in game extras will be
Quote:
The Collector's Edition launches several weeks early and includes secret bonus levels, additional puzzles, and other intriguing "extras".


In addition, the strategy guide will be accessible while still in the game.

There will be other extras also, but the in-game extra's are bonus levels, puzzles, and some surprises. wave
