    Oh heck no I'm not retyping them! Belly laugh  I'm copying/pasting them from Big Fish. I'm just pretty picky. I have to have things just so that's why it's taking me awhile. Big smile

    Hi Genki & everyone.  Smile  My name over at BigFish is sunshinej, so now I like to keep it simple and use it everywhere.  I was most active in the Adventurous Fish thread there.   I did quite a few of the group plays over there and when I saw that there was a group play for The Longest Journey here, I signed up right away.  I had this game for quite awhile and would love to play it.

    I am married and with 2 grown children and 1 granddaughter 15 months old.  I first started with pc games in 2010 and haven't quit since.

    Hi Sunshine! Welcome to the forum!! I'm sorta new too. Been here 4 months now. My big thing is reviews, mostly for HOPAs. I also have some adventure games that have been sitting around in desktop, but I always get the jitters trying to play them! lol So the last group play, Shiver, was my first, and I am supposed to be getting my act together for Fallout! group play, but again, freaked out about it. lol

    I'm not much of a forum person, so I like it here because there are not so many people as there is elsewhere (and they're nicer flutter eyelashes) (genki, why don't we have a wink smilie? Or am I just missing it?)

    I'm from Australia, which means I'm on around this time every day, and if I'm lucky, I'm still up when the Americans and Brits get up  Big smile 

    Really glad to meet you and welcome!!!! Welcome!

    Yepsa, you just missed it~  It's right next to the EEK!  smilie, but you can always just type : wink: (without the space) Wink

    Sunshinej, I remember seeing your nick, and a most hearty Welcome!  to GGG!  I'm so glad to have someone else joining in on the TLJ group play!  The thread is here: The Longest Journey - Group Play, and I hope you enjoy playing along with us!!  I'll likely lag behind, as I've never played it before, and am still somewhat new to playing TRUE adventures! Sunny

    Thanks for the welcome JustTheFacts,  Sable  & Genki 

    JustTheFacts Love your reviews at BigFish.  I just played Shiver for the first time last summer and thought it was excellent and loved it.

    Sable Yes, Thank you.  I have been enjoying poking around in here.  Many interesting things to read.

    Genki  Thanks for the links, I will check them out.

    Welcome Sunshine!! I do love saying that!  I am just getting more into adventure games.  Normally play HOPA's.  I don't have the Longest Journey but plan to check it out.  We are so glad you are here.  I do love all of the reviews here.

    JustTheFacts...I have the biggest crush on Keanu Reeves and I love him in the Matrix.  So when picking my avatar I found this one and thought it was just perfect.


    Hi volnole,  Nice to meet you too.  HOPA's and adventures are my favorite type of games to play.  Smile   I just can't get enough of them.

    I adore him too sunshinej, but he is lower on my list than Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Spike lol. I love the Matrix even if I didn't care about Keanu (think Trinity is seriously cool too), because the story is so good, and the special effects floored me when I first saw it.

    What kind of HOPA's are you into? What are your favourites?

    JustTheFacts...If I was Buffy I would have picked Spike over Angel any day of the week.  lol  Spike has such a gorgeous accent.

    I am into all kinds of HOPA's.  I recently just did a marathon of the Dark Tales series.  On Saturday I just finished Fall of the New Age which I thought was a excellent game.  It is very hard to pick my favorites as I am rarely dissatisfied with a game I play.  On the whole I like ERS games.  Oh, Nearwood by MagicIndie is one of my favorites.

    I'm a big fan of the Dark Tales series too. That's how I first started buying from big fish. I just did the beta for Dark Tales 6 (you can check out my review here)

    Dark Tales 6: The Fall Of The House Of Usher (Beta)

    And I like almost everything made by ERS, although these days I'm also very impressed with Eipix, and of course, Elephant.

    My favourite at the moment would have to be Hope Diamond, but I'm also into Haunted Hotel as well.
    And I love Spike mostly because, unlike Angel, even before he got his soul, ie. when he was still evil, he tried to be good for love. And he's such a smart arse!  Belly laugh

    I have to duck out, but will be back in 10.

    I have everything linked and cross-linked... which is good, 'cause sometimes the search function doesn't find obvious hits! Laugh



    Justie, I think it's been quiet because at least four of us are caught up in playing The Longest Journey!  I've barely been able to drag myself away from it all day!  (Snow day, home from work again~)

    Yes, genki, you do all seem heavily into it. Pity I couldn't join you for this one. But we'll get there. Keep enjoying  Big smile 

    A whole bunch of people are doing a group play of an adventure game called The Longest Journey, Tesa. I'd never heard about such an idea. It's great. We all played Shiver together the other day. Was wonderful to talk about the game while playing it with others who were too.

    One more link, and that is to the Dark & Eerie Games Thread.  You may have seen it at Big Fish when CCC was still around.  It started out as a thread for those who enjoy the D&E games, but it's turned into our "chatting" thread, where we talk about anything and everything. 

    Our Bright & Cheery area is woefully unloved, as (it seems) that all of our posting members prefer the scary games! Laugh
