    Well,   this thread is getting neglected.  I miss dj


    I have been playing the new GT: Crimson Hollow game.   Rather enjoying it.  It took
    a twist I was not expecting,  I love we get to carry dear old Dad around, and there
    is even a laugh out loud moment when Dorian takes a crack at Dad.

    This family and its associates are never boring.

    I hope everyone is doing well and will be back here soon.

    Exciting news from the skinny dragon breeder here - I played a bunch of trials and a beta yesterday, and today I played a HOPA from start to finish!! Took 4444ever! OH!


    I played Subliminal Realms The Masterpiece, and it's not (a masterpiece), but it was fine for me, I like painting games. I'm not going to get back into reviewing though, I am enjoying the more mindless timeless fantasy world where I can hide away. Don't want to 'go back to work'. Snicker

    I've been ignoring the pc now for weeks. Just too damn cold here. Worst winter in my memory. Cold cold cold with icy winds, and it has literally rained every 24 hours for the entire year so far, except for 4 days' heatwave of 40+C, and 2 days last week, with only the clouds. Still cold of course. Hardly ever hear Aussies complain about rain! SingingRain \'s windy  c-cold

    Glad your internet is back though!

    So. I'm playing HOPAs again now. Have played Marie Roget last night, where I had a terrible time keeping track of who's who. Maybe I'm just out of practice.

    Then, His Lordship Tobie jumped up on my desk without considering obstacles, and knocked over a bottle of water onto the mouse and pad and speakers and wiring! Arrghh! But, no harm done. Except that today, I go to play the DD, and find I have no sound!!! pullhair I could scream! I don't need sound to play with dragons, do I? But I'm not playing much with that, am I? I am playing, for only the 3rd day in a row, HOPAs! Anyone want an overweight, thoroughly spoiled, arrogant Bengal? I'll send him by post!

    Okay... I'm out of practice... but I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND A BLOODY THING IN DARK TALES: TELL-TALE HEART!!




    Totally confused and bamboozled! 




    I do see ERS (it's still them, right?) are making an all out battle to be different now. All the recent games have been substantially different from the norm - particularly their norm. Which is kinda a shame, because I liked the old familiar style of ERS games. Of course, Dupin is there as gorgeous as ever (although aging I think! When did he get those bags under the eyes?).

    You too Frodo!!  Hug Offering

    Am dividing my time now between dragons, HOPAs and books. Yay! Finally some balance. Laugh

    Now we just gotta rope the rest of the gang back in!

    @esme, I played 6 Grim Tales (Gray family adventures) in a row!! Glutton for punishment, but it's all your fault, you made them sound so funny!

    I LOVE the Grim Tales games.  Elk grin

    Have you played Bloody Mary yet?  That's my favourite in the series, and the spookiest, I think. EEK!

    Very confused by the family tree, but still love the games anyway. Silly face

    I played Bloody Mary a couple of times before there were dragons, so this time I started with the one immediately after. But I agree, it was the best and the scariest.

    Are you still playing BFG games? I am in love all over again with Eipix. Amaranthine Voyage was only their 2nd game (Final Cut was first), yet even by today's standards they were clearly breathtakingly talented. The originality! The artwork! The marvellous sense of FUN they project. Love it all. Will need a two-for to get the rest of all their series CEs. What's your prediction @Frodo?

    Yup yup yup! Playing lots of games!!

    Have played all 6 Amaranthine Voyages, and the last 6 Grim Tales. Have been trialing games/series I don't know as well. Big smile

    Still play with my dragons, but not so much these days, and not every day. I am also reading most days as well. I like to think I am achieving some balance.  Big smile

    Not sure if anyone hear knows that True Fear came out on Steam.  I myself bought it
    from BF,  but may rebuy it down the road on Steam. 
    They put in a little more than was on the BF version.
    Hopefully a prelude to the long awaited True Fear 2.

    I saw that True Fear made it to Steam, and added it to my wishlist.  I own it on Big Fish, but it glitched out on me Overreaction

    I, too, am hoping that this means True Fear 2 will finally come out!  I sure wish that the devs hadn't cut the final product... The original trailer was actually scary! Spooky bats
