I really like this game, but will never buy a CE again without some idea of how long it is. No walkthrough so it is impossible to tell. I don't want wall paper and art either. Not ever.

sigh.

To BFG!!!
I have not read that one person is interested in the wallpaper and and art.
What are we supposed to do with it??? Unless you are an art expert and get a thrill out of looking at the art, it just sits there having no use whatsoever.

How about giving us something we want, like one or more extra levels of 'the game'.

Maybe this should be a 'new discussion created'

What do we want besides the wallpaper and the art?

obrien, you can check the Strategy guide under Extras: 8 chapters plus the Bonus game. Depending on how far you got during the demo, it should give you an idea about your playtime.

sinshack wrote:When someone who purchased finishes, could you let us know how much time the bonus sceens take? An extra 5 HOG sceens and interactive play sounds great, but not if they only take 30 minutes. I'm hoping for at least an extra hour of play to help justify the extra bucks.
sinshack, will answer that outside the Reviews thread.

well.. i have just DL'd and am seriously wondering if i should jump in... wondering if the same thing will happen here that happened with puppetshow...

see, i really enjoyed the first and thought i would try the CE just to get a peek at the game... then wait and buy the regular if i liked it... but i got really into it and the artwork was amazing, so i just said - gotta have it!!

so now i'm sitting here wondering if i will fall down that well again... i enjoyed 'house of stone' and did go black and play it again... i often do with games i have enjoyed... i know i don't need the CE but i really want to see what this game has to offer, and it sounds like it's going to be better than the first from all the reviews... hmmm...

for all the comments about extras... i love extras... i'm the person that watches the film with the commentary ON, watches every behind the scenes feature, and will also probably change the language option at some time during the film... are these options necessary? no, but they're a whole lot of fun and interesting and even downright educational... will everyone use them? no, but for those of us who sink our teeth into every extra bite we can get from something...

yeah, i'm getting the CE... i can already tell...

Hi stapyhar and welcome! The name of the first game is Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone. You can find it here and it's not a CE .

Trying to decide to buy now or wait for the SE.

Decisions...decisions.

Really loved the first one but I'm going to wait until the standard edition comes out. I, like many other fishies, refuse to buy Collector's Editions. It is just not worth it to me for the "so called" extras. With so many good games out right now (just finishing up Elixir of Immortality) and a list of others I want to try, I think I will have enough to play and enjoy until the regular (and much less expensive) version comes out.

ok... i'm back... and slightly disappointed....

after spending 45 minutes with the game, i'm halfway through and have encountered some weird glitchy things...

got stuck in the tavern when the barman said he was going to give me a piece of the amulet, he just stood there - game freeze! backed out, went back in, had the piece in inventory, but really dislike the interruption in game play...

gave the monk the prayer beads... was able to retrieve amulet piece without a hitch, but the monk came back - ???

was able to knock over the bicycle, though... to what use, i have no idea, but i thought it was funny... who would've thought that random acts of vandalism in a game could make me happier than the progress of the game itself?

anyway... i am simply finding no challenge with this game... just not feeling it... in fact, the biggest thing i'm looking forward to right now is seeing how many mirrors i can collect... i'm up to almost twenty, so with my last 15 minutes... i think i can break that...

to echoes and shadows

I am going to DEMO

For when I beta tested the game..MY CURSOR would not work. The game would OPEN then it would freeze and disappear .

That was weeks ago that I tested it. Some fishie said that the company made the OP for the CURSOR GREAT
for I told them in my review the problem that i had to play it.

I really enjoyed this demo, but as with most others, will wait for the standard edition. I found this game a bit difficult, just had to use some brain cells to figure it out. I had no computer glitches. I was sorry my time was up. Looking forward to reg. edition coming out. Thanks to all who write reviews. I not only find it useful for the game I'm playing, but have found many other games mentioned to try out.

Really enjoyed the demo and I am sure I will be buying the regular edition.
I have no issues with CEs other than I have a very limited budget for
games and a wish list a mile long. The regular edition of this will
be way at the top.

The original Echoes of the Past came out while I still had my
old computer and was one of the very, very many that
couldn't be played on it. Now, I will go and try it on this
'puter.

Hmmmm, first they frustrate us to desperation with a week of hopelessly bad games, and then they present the CE edition of a very good game? Of course a lot more people will throw themselves head over heels at it now, after a week of starvation - without bothering to wait for the regular edition - than would have happened otherwise.
Just like when starving lions in the Colosseum were finally let loose on gladiators.

I smell marketing tactics behind this... hmmm

So - the next time they give us a dry spell week, we'll know what to expect by the end of it....
