10. Dirty secret: I never beat MI2 until this year. I always got off Scab island, but ran out of steam up when you had the other two added in. I did not see that ending coming and now I am super curious to what they were planning for MI3, instead of Curse.

The Special Edition of Monkey Island 2 does provide a talkie built in, so I just ran with that and had a ball. I swapped between the two modes frequently, which was handy for one specific puzzle. The audio commentary was awesome, especially when Tim was apologizing for certain puzzles and design choices. I am still not a huge fan of the new artstyle, but the game was thoroughly enjoyable (even if the entire last act I just wanted to quit and go play Fate of Atlantis again since the backgrounds are similar).

11. Bought it Saturday, finished all cups last night (on lowest difficulty). It is a step between Wipeout and Fzero and is an incredible title. I know Nintendo does not believe there is anything they can do with the franchise, but why fix what is not broken? New maps, new ships, exquisite gameplay. I know that I will get destroyed if I play online, but just playing against bots I more than got my moneys worth. Though my enjoyment of it is nothing compared to my four year old nephew who played the base maps on VS and thinks it is the coolest thing in the world. He spent yesterday drawing "hover racers" with my mother and insisted on video chatting to show me.

Now back to Kings Quest 7...


Woohoo! Monkey Island Love!!! What did you think of that ending and how it gets entirely disregarded in the third installment? I think it is an awesome ending that should have been the real end of it personally.

Also how is kings quest 7 treating you?

I really enjoyed it, though there were a few sections that felt harder than they should have been. I think I beat it last year, so you can check out my thoughts in that games beaten thread.

I read some of the theories on this yesterday, I really dont know. I would love to see where Tim and Ron wanted to take the story, but Ron is like a vault and keeps secrets close to his chest.

Poorly. It plays far differently than 1-6 and I am having a hard time adjusting. When I did my marathon of the others last year it was easy (cracked the code kind of gaming), but I have had more trouble in 7 then I did in any of the others. It is a beautiful title but the music goes from awesome to grating pretty quickly (much like the Parrot in MI2). Ill beat it, even if I have to use a guide. The bigger issue is that the update to Galaxy somehow erased my save, so I had to restart it yesterday. I was only one Act in so its not the end of the world.

Yeah Kings Quest 7 isn't bad, but it is in that late Sierra era of adventure games like Torin's Passage that just feels a little too different and needs some adjustment. It isn't bad by any means, but just a little weird. After that you gotta do 8!!! It is......... interesting.

8 is on the docket, but it will be played with a guide. I love ARPGS, but when I last tried to play 8 it was painful.

I will not judge you for that, especially later in the levels. I get a weird Ultima IX vibe from it.

Ultima series is next in my play through of every title in a classic pc gaming series I never finished. Well Ultima or Quest for Glory. Luckily I beat U0 and U1 last year. And I have made headway in U2 and U7 in the near past.

New to me laptop is getting all the couch gaming that the Switch was getting...well until Mario Kart buggers everything up.

I have been playing this some the past week or two. When you say you beat all cups on lowest difficulty, do you mean the first set of cups that open up (I think there are 10 of them) or all 30 of them across the three categories of difficulty available? Does some kind of extra difficulty open up at the end that makes all 30 of them tougher? If the former, I suppose I will list this one as beaten too 8)

All 10 cups on lowest difficulty. I plan on beating them on the harder ones, but I consider it beaten.
