Yep, that's from Grim Fandango. Quite possibly the greatest adventure game of all time, and you'd be remiss to not play it and Full Throttle. There's a snowball's chance in hell your local game store'll have it, but Amazon does (at a ridiculous 66-odd bucks).

Here's a couple of tidbits to whet your appetite.



Glottis sings "Rusty Anchor"!



Mr. Frustration Man off the stellar soundtrack.



Long live the Cavefish!

Just finished Uncharted 2 this weekend! Man, that was pure awesomeness ^^

Now my girlfriend can claim the PS3 to play Brutal Legend

And yeah, Grim Fandango kicks butt! It's a very fun game to play, and the characters are simply brilliant ^^

^ A buddy of mine is addicted to it. Personally I'm not into those type of games.

I've been playing the original Wolfenstein a lot lately.

And I've been screwing around in GTA 4 out of boredom.

Went on a date with a lawyer named KiKi (No relation, Lonsome ) and got lucky. Gotta love GTA.

I have the demo of Left 4 Dead 2 in heavy rotation. In fact, it's practically the only thing I've played for the past couple of days. Two days and 10,000 zombies later, I need a break.




In my PS3 line-up: FIFA 10, Brutal Legend, Among Thieves, Arkham Asylum, and Ratchet & Clank. I won a copy of Madden 10 yesterday in that KFC contest, and that'll be here in 6-8 weeks.

I got Dragon Age: Origins today. I seen that Vance said he has been playing it in another thread. So, Vance; if you happen to see this. What is your opinion on the game so far? I have yet to play it.
(I did not ask you about this in the Lego Indy 2 thread, because I did not want to take it off topic.)

Dragon Age is sick! I've been playing for the last week or so and all I want to do is play it more. It's the kind of game you could take a day off of work and sit down and play for 12 straight hours and play. If you played the KOTOR Star Wars games for Xbox this is similar in style.

I've also had Dragon Age for about a week (for PC) and I can heartily recommend it to everyone who's liked the past BioWare products (bar Mass Effect, which is more a RPG lite, but a good game nevertheless). It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, simply offers us more of the same old in a quality package.

The start was a little slow and bland, at least with the human noble origin story, but it definitely picked up once the full map opened up. While I'm still not very deep into it, I can already say that the amount of content here seems to be nothing worth of impressive.

I can't say if it's a game for everyone, but any RPG fan should certainly get their money's worth out of it.

So you're one of those who helped it sell fifty-billion copies in 24-hours?


Finn: It certainly looks like it could be interesting, but I haven't played any sort of RPG since... oh, Morrowind. Not that I need another game. My zombie apocalypse is more than enough to keep me occupied in between everything else.

That reminds me: I should've taken a screen shot; we had a pile of bodies three feet high on three sides of our strong point in the finale of the 1st Chapter. It's a good point of reference: If you're going to strong point a location, an automatic shotgun will even the odds.

I sat down to play Dragon Age last night. I started with a male, human noble. I loved the origin story for it. I got caught up in the game (reading every codex i found, etc) and before I knew it I had played for about four hours.

Arab Swordsman and Finn are both right. This is a great game. I have not been immersed in a game like this for awhile.

my number 1 this season is left 4 dead 2, which i played and is awesome! I played a few levels of modern warfare 2, which is an amazing game and certainly matches up to the hype.

seriously considering getting assassins creed 2, loved the first one! played the demos of brutal legend and fifa 10, which were alot of fun but i don't think i would buy them. i might buy the fifa world cup game when it comes out though
