    The good news is that you can get the owls you missed in the Extra Bonus Gameplay.

    You might want to check in the forums about those fairies we missed.   I know I also collected
    1 pumpkin.  I thought there would be more,   but guess I thought wrong.
    I did collect all the characters,  so that is something.
    Not to give too much away,   but I really had fun at the end of the Bonus game
    beating the  soul stealer dude. 

    esme--I agree with you.   As much as I like these games,  sometimes the level of
    silliness makes you scratch your head.
    Or hear Hercule Poirot's  "Mon Dieu!!  Do you not use your little grey cells?"   Snicker

    Don't worry esme---its a different game.   Besides,  it will develop your muscles and give
    you super powers  Belly laugh .


    I am now playing Dark Realm-Queen of the Flame---a title that seems rather contradictory
    to me.
    Anyway,   I just came to a part where the guards are about as good as the Secret

    I shouldn't go snooping.       Hmm...

    We have to collect pumpkins in Wicked Harvest?? OH!

    I thought I checked the forum this morning and read something about silver, gold and bronze flowers? I was kind of confused about that. Is it in the bonus?

    Gosh, how many collectibles are there in this game?

    Well,   what was curious was that I clicked on 1--I think it was in the Gypsy's house--
    and it came up as some type of collection--then I never saw another one.    Dunno

    I have not been collecting MO in the HO's in this Dark Flame Queen game I am playing.
    I forgot!!  Oops!

    Maybe I should start picking a bone with some of the devs instead of picking up pumpkins, apples, and other detritus they make us collect . I am getting sick of collectibles. Never thought I'd say it, but I am. They overdid it. 

    Time to stop beating the dead horse already. (Which is an absolutely terrible idiom. I like my horses alive and unbeaten, thanks!)

    For me,  if there are no  collectables-  then I will not buy a CE.

    You know they will still make us do silly stuff even w/o the collectables.   Rolling Eyes

    So,   is that horse going to be added to the emoticons?   I hope so!!

    I'm still a sucker for morphing objects, so I totally understand. 

    I love finding quirky emoticons and sticking them in here. I have issues.

    Laugh  esme! You must be reading my mind everyone in Dragon Cave is desperately in search of chickens, eggs and hens. Because if we find enough, we'll find the rooster!! But I see you already have it! 

    Happy bounce

    I love emoticons! I just never seem to find the time to search for them - so thank you so much for the ones that you put here.

    Okay now ladies on to more serious stuff. I am in a dilemma. Have two free pcc slots for this month's card. Have the 2 necessary pcc codes to fill them.

    But what games? I have a small  Rolling Eyes list of 25 must have's in the se form lol. I have narrowed it down to between:

    Forgotten Kingdoms:: Dreams of Ruin

    Gizmos 1 and 

    Gizmo Spooky - for the celebration I have never before celebrated lol

    Grim Facade: Artist and Pretender

    Grim Legend 2: Dark Swan

    Queens Quest: Dark Tower

    It's time to pay the piper Singing   Belly laugh 

    Now the reviewer needs to consult the players, she has lost all will to write them since she has taken up dragon breeding for a hobby (obsession) for herself! 
    coffee

    I await with bated coffee!

    I see Gizmo is  TGT on BF and is $4.99.

    Grim Facade:  Artist and Pretender.   The CE is what I just played and really enjoyed
    it.  Not sure what the SE will have,   but the info on Leonardo Di Vinci was interesting.
    The Bonus was not necessary for the storyline.   The things that were collected went into
    a story book that,  well,  told you a short story.
    So,  as much as I enjoyed all that,  you could wait for the SE and get a good game..

    Oh nuts.   Once again....need to get ready to go to work!!!

    Have a good day,  everyone.

    Thanks luvtoread for the info on Grim Facade: The Artist and the Pretender.  I am Suspect on getting the SE for the Grim Facade series in case the story finishes up in the bonus chapter.

    I am playing a hard game right now called Evil Pumpkin: The Lost Halloween.  I got it at Gamehouse, but I think it is coming to Big Fish this week.  Casual setting has HOs, but the harder setting is straight adventure.  I am playing casual setting and it's still pretty hard. It's also weird and long and a great game for Halloween.

    Esme...I love your donkey or is it a horse emoticon that you found. It's super cute.

    Love your quirky emoticons, Esme! Jack-o-Squee

    Justie, the only game I have on your list is Grim Legends 2 and I haven't played it yet. So I'm basically useless in your quest to fill your PC. Embarrassed

    Thanks for your review, luvtoread. It's good to know I can wait for the SE and still get a completed game.

    I've been enjoying our summer-like weather! Sunny Because I know winter is just around the corner. In fact, I think we may get snow showers later this week. Huh?

    And what is up with the new Weird Park? I'm beginning to think something dreadful happened between Alawar and BFG. Cry  
    Anyways, the 2 CEs due out this week are um...not Weird Park! Meh
    Vampire Legends: The Untold Story of Elizabeth Bathory (most likely a buy for me!)
    Silent Night: Children's Orchestra

    Can't wait to see the next Vampire Legends. Really loved the first!  Vampire Lamp

    I ended up with, predictably, the SEs of popular series (ie. played it safe) and bought Grim Facade and Grim Legends. 

    Well, our dearest most looked for Evil Pumpkin has arrived in time to save Halloween! - honestly I feel like an expectant father finally given the good news!  Belly laugh 

    And wow! Here's something new! A "easy HOP" setting and a "hard pure adventure" setting. Didn't see that coming!

    I have kept quiet about a beta I did at the developer's invitation, because I was specifically asked to do so, but it is okay to say this much I think - Frankenstein is due out before the end of the year and it is awesomely dark and eerie!!

    The HD graphics are unbelievable! Cut scenes that don't actually cut into anything - they are such a smooth transition to such a high quality on the animations, you don't even know they're there! It all just flows.

    But without a doubt, the most amazing thing about this game is the monster... Frankie-walk He is GORGEOUS!!!! I mean, he's creepy and scary and ugly as hell, but so well rendered I just sat there watching him!

    And best of all, the advertising worked! Free game for me!

    Oh, Justie, how you tease us! Wink

    I'm eager to see what this new Frankenstein game is all about!

    Can you (at least) tell us if this particular developer released any other games? Enquiring minds need to know. Laugh

    Off to try Evil Pumpkin!   Jack-o-Squee

    Snicker  LOVE teasing people - it's an Australian National Passtime. We call it "Shit stirring"  Snicker

    The developer is JetDogs, and yes, they have a few games at Big Fish already. From memory, more TM than HOPA I think. Anyway, they have 4 in production now.

    The Frankenstein game is the familiar story. At least, it's the one where the Monster is looking for a wife... Nice non-save the relative story!

    The game is a bit too easy, and you'll not hear that from me very often! That was on the Easy mode. I went back into the game on Hard, and it had sparkles where the HOP scenes were. Ditching that and similar sorts of things is where I hope my advice was heeded. They specifically said that they were. 

    It'll be a stand alone SE, and as such, might well be the best of the year. Not just because HD art is mesmerizing, it also branches out into new fields in the interface and inventory placement, and a bunch of other things that make you feel like you're playing a significantly different sort of HOPA. 

    Can't wait to see more of that monster and his mayhem! And a few other not-too-friendly other creatures.  Snicker

    JetDogs tell me they're looking for votes at Steam Greenlight! I've almost completely forgotten what that meant, but I know it's something we do for deserving developers/games. Genki?

    Thanks genki! 

    I see the other games they have made include the 12 Labors of Hercules as well as Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Secrets and Sinister City, djrum. Both of these two HOPAs I had a great dislike for the graphics, as I recall... ironic! hee hee hee..

    What did you think of the D&E worthiness of the game genki?  Shock

    LMAO, Justie! Belly laugh About the "teaser" thing!

    Wow, that Frankenstein game looks awesome! Sadly, I don't have a Steam account. I vote for BFG to get it!!!!
    I'm sure there will be plenty of people bitching about it, too. "Too violent", "Too graphic", "Too scary". Geesh, no wonder we never get any good D&E games! Meh

    I've played Alchemy Mysteries. I'm not sure, but I think I played Sinister City as well. I'll have to check my Purchase History on that one.

    OK....I have come here to confess my   sins....

    Forgive me gamers....for I have  had mixed games sins.... Embarrassed


    Remember when I posted about the 1 pumpkin I had clicked on in the Grim Facade...
    or was it Legends...and I never found another..well......

    I just was playing MOTW:  Black Rose......I clicked on a pumkin.....you guessed it.
    That was pumpkin #2.    pumpk cart

    I had started to play it.....found one pumpkin....stopped to buy....then went back
    to Grim Whatever.

    Rolling Eyes 

    Well,    I cannot complain about lack of games to play.     I just need to get them
    straight in my confused head!!

    Aw heck, luvtoread, I'm always getting my games mixed up! Stars

    But wait a minute...so, are you saying we have to find pumpkins in MOTW: Black Rose, which is a vampire-themed game? LMAO....somehow, pumpkins and vampires just don't go together well.
    I did get it, haven't started it.

    I'm playing Royal Detective: Queen of Something. (I'm behind in my games!)

    I was going to start MT: Blackrow's Secret, then discovered I hadn't purchased it yet. Snicker
