Topic change! Anyone else watch the "inside look" thing for the new King's Quest game? It makes me want to cry....and not in a good way....

I haven't seen that, but I keep hearing voice cast announcements which makes it seem like they're trying to be serious about it. The trailer didn't fill you with confidence then?

I'm with Flare. It's one of those things where if it was a brand-new license it could be cool, but to me it just doesn't seem "King's Quest-y."

The voice cast looked amazing. They've got Christopher Lloyd voicing an older version of Graham and the dude who played the Inconceivable! guy in Princess Bride (can't think of his name) as a knight. However, they've taken the silly to an all new extreme (the unicorns are goats with horns strapped on) and the animation is terrible. It's a huge disappointment for me, especially since KQ was such a large part of my childhood.

Konami are going to focus on mobile gaming. Everyone is butthurt.

I find it kind of funny that because mobile gaming is such a big deal in Japan, we're going back to the early 90s in that there'll be a bunch of Japanese games we can't play easily/at all and likely won't be localised.

Not a huge shock considering their trajectory over the last year or more. I figured they'd just get out of games entirely but I guess making games for Japanese mobiles is the next step up from that.

Damn straight! KQII, KQVI, and KQ: MoE are my favorite ones. KQVI was my first ever video game. I remember playing it as a small child and I still get as much enjoyment out of it now as I did then. Who didn't like putting the speed setting on high and watching Alexander's legs be a blur? Or the snarkiness of the narrator?

I'd played a bunch of video games already thanks to my older brothers, but Alexander was one of the first game protagonists who felt like an actual character, almost a real person. It was a combination of excellent writing, graphics/design and voice acting.

Unfortunately, my oldest brother wasn't as keen on Space Quest so I sort of missed that boat. I was all-in on KQ, decently so on HQ and only had a passing knowledge of SQ.

I tried to get into them back when they were popular and could never get into either. To date I've never played an adventure game in that style I actually found enjoyable.

There's a Space Quest collection on Steam that goes on sale fairly often. Probably on GOG, too. The first three probably haven't aged very well but SQ4 and SQ5 still hold up nicely. Worth it just for those two I'd say.
