Chit-chat, Rants and other Comments

[Post New]by shadowfax44 on Apr 25, 11 12:26 AM
At the request of Powder Monkey and others in CCC thread entitled "A suggestion to BF regarding reviews thread" I am creating this thread for members to post various comments that are not related to the topic game, anything you care to rant about (this may be unnecessary since todays offering is not a CE!) and any other chit-chat that you want.

If you just can't help yourself and need to post spoilers, I imagine this would be good place for that although as a courtesy to other members, you may still want to mark spoilers as such.

I hope this is what you had in mind Powder Monkey!!

Cheerio...

ETA: I thought I should include a link to the thread I am referring to in case you want to check to see if I am making this up! http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/156275.page

Knock! Knock! Hello, anybody in? Is this the right place to rant about how long this game is taking to download with my ISP!! It's only at 65% and it's been going since 8.08am (UK).

Now all we need is a 'But' or a 'stevie says' and we'll be right on the money!

The dev - Maximize g. developed lots of games in the past e.g. 2Tasty (which i liked), Burger Battle (haven't try), Seawise Chronicles (which i don't like), Pet Playground (i also don't like)and this latest game. It seems to be the best game they've develop, not a bad game but not that good!

Big Big Spoiler:
I Played about 45 min of the demo. It started off nice with widescreen and nice voice overs. The story line is very adult, but the play is childish, that just my opinion, dont take it to heart. The first 2 puzzles were my least liked, strings which was easy for a change and comparison pairs. Items were easy enough to find in the lists. Lots of things strewn around that you would probably need later but cant pick up now, in the other scenes. if someone gets along farther in the game i will read their reviews and see if it gets better. Im afraid after a while I wont know what is to be combined to use.

Well, I'm stuck on the hook thingy. Whatever I do, the items just won't 'merge'!

Why do devs insist on trying to re-invent the wheel? Grr.

Do you have all three items?? You have to have them all for it to work. I think you have to combine in the correct order also.

When you've got everything required in the 'top' part of the merge box, you have to drag them into the bottom bit to 'merge' them. Quite frustrating till you work this out

Hi shadowfax, kelvarda and all.
Is this the right place to rant about having to go to work today, Easter Monday, (Bank Holiday in England)?

OMG... too funny peglegann.

I hope he comes in - I always love to hear what he has to say about a game. Whenever Stevie likes a game I just HAVE to try it out... I am serious.
