    There's a New Space Quest Coming...

    in PC Discussion on 24 May 2012

    Well, not exactly. But the two guys from Andromeda are back together and making a new game, a "SpaceVenture". You remember the Space Quest series, right? Arguably the best of the Sierra adventure game series, it was not only funny, but had a rad storyline that continued and became more complex through each sequel (up until the 5th one anyway). This is probably the closest thing we'll get to a...

    So Blonde: Back to the Island

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 April 2011

    The English version of this game was apparently released late last year, but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I might pick the Wii version up? I thought Mamba Games were publishing it, but their website makes no mention of the game. Can anyone confirm that it is actually out? All of the online retailers I've seen are out of stock and comments for the DS version on Amazon suggest...

    Some wii games should buy

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 May 2010

    Super Paper Mario is awesome and I've heard great things about The Godfather. Legend of Zelda had this awesome "Twilight Hack" bug feature built in, but it's been superceded by BannerBomb. Speaking of superceded, I can see Madden '07 too. Um... these are all pretty old games. It's like you're a time traveller who can't make polls or something.As for your "upcoming" games... it might be worth...

    I need an easy Wii game that my Mom can play. Ideas?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 May 2010

    Hidden object games (Escape the Museum, The Vanishing Files) might be the go. They use just one button and pointing. Along those lines, an adventure like Broken Sword: The Director's Cut might fit the bill too.All of the hidden object games are really cheap, and while the titles are 'easy' to control, the puzzles in them can be challenging. I've also heard that the hidden object genre is a big...

    Monster Hunter Tri: Wii Remote Pointer?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 April 2010

    I'm using the Wii remote + Nunchuck control scheme for Monster Hunter Tri, and while the gestures are good, I've found support for the Wii remote pointer somewhat lacking. For instance, in the inventory screen and most menus, you can hold Z to bring up an on-screen pointer. However, to manage inventory items, you still need to use the D-pad on the Wii remote. You can't just drag+drop or even...

    PC advice for an Aussie

    in PC Discussion on 17 February 2010

    Instead of going to specific suppliers like ScorpTec and MSY, I suggest going to http://www.staticice.com.au/ and searching for the product you're after. You'll automatically get the best deal(s) listed from suppliers in Australia.The Whirlpool forums have guides that specialise in this sort of thing http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/?tag=rmp_sg_whirlpoolpcs . If you choose a category, you can see...

    Broken sword: Shadow of the Templars kicks arse!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 January 2010

    Like you, I missed Broken Sword on the PC the first time 'round. I just finished it on the Wii recently, and yes it's a fantastic game.As you mentioned, the Wii is especially conducive to the adventure genre, not only because it has a "mouse", but also because adventure games naturally lend themselves to more social settings. Sierra used to advise bringing a friend to help in their game manuals,...

    What persisted you to buy your first console?

    in Gaming Discussion on 31 December 2009

    Do you mean persuaded? Wii. Nostalgia and the Wii remote. Its popularity meant it would surely be a hit and not end up like the GameCube or Nintendo 64. There was also a bit of brand loyalty -- I don't own a non-Nintendo console. The VC and Wii remote are two of the special features that lured me back to Nintendo....
