    I just played the biggest turd sandwich of a beta I have seen in a long time. Ladies and gentlemen, may I humbly suggest you avoid "Rite of Passage: Bloodlines" at all costs.

    Here is the feedback I left on the post-beta survey:
    This game is so dumb. I've already mentioned the magic conch... that I had no idea I had to use in place of oh, I don't know, actual science? And gee, there's a woman bleeding to death, but let me carve up a wooden bear first. That's a great idea. And a fisherman who just lets me take all the junk I want from the yard as long as I leave him alone?

    There's a dumpster fire in this game, and somehow that seems apropos for this dumpster fire of a game.

    Dumpster Fire.

    Oh, and Genki, my security program apparently won't let me open your spoiler... nor can I post emotiocons and gifs.... HOWEVER....

    Knowing that it's from a Puppetshow game, I know it's stupid without even reading it. The Puppetshow games started off interesting and quickly descended into stupidity. :(

    RE: PuppetShow 2: Souls of the Innocent

    Aw man, it's no fun if you can't see my rant!  Let me UN-spoiler that for you!

    SPOILER INCOMING!

    I have to say that I was super-irritated by a couple of tasks in the game.  My biggest gripe is with the bonus.


    We have a street light with a lit candle inside, and a file nestled behind the candle.  We need that file, but we can't just blow out the candle.  Ohhh, no!  Of course not!  So what do we have to do?

    You're going to love this...

    Find a bottle, find a cork, find a wine tap, fill up the bottle, cork it... and use FRICKIN' ALCOHOL to put out the candle!! Dark & Eerie Games Thread - Page 12 1339004300  Are you freaking kidding me??  Sure, no one specified that it was wine - and it WAS green - but c'mon!

    I expect nothing more from Puppetshow games. They are second only to the Grey/Gray family nonsense IMO.

    Well, only because the Twisted Lands series died a painful (I hope) death. That series is my barometer of stupidity!

    I just finished Mystery Trackers: Black Isle, and OH. MY. GAWD.

    The devs made a token attempt at reality early on:  Oomph, too heavy, I'll need a wheelbarrow. *lugs wheelbarrow up a ladder* *manages to lift incredibly-heavy, large item into wheelbarrow* *takes the whole thing DOWN A LADDER*  At this point I just threw my hands up in the air and gave in, knowing that this would be an adventure in "game logic".

    It got worse from there, especially in the bonus chapter.  Let's wake up this sleeping polar bear so that we can gain its trust and get to the puzzle behind it.

    Wake up a sleeping, heaping pile of fur and fangs.  Right.  But wait, setting off fireworks twenty feet away won't do it.  Oh no no, it slept right through that.  A tiny barking dog will do the trick, though! Overreaction  Good lord.

    LOL That is the one I called "Soggy Mystery Trackers" and I hated it. In fact, I never finished it.

    Right now I've finished the main game of the "Iron Rock" MT game and it's not amazing, but not horrible either. Not sure if I'll go and do the bonus chapter or not. Meh.
    I'm currently downloading Fatal Evidence: Cursed Island because I remember liking the beta. We shall see if it lives up to the hype!
