    Thanks for the information. I forgot all about it!
    So, the majority of new releases are NOT going to be for PC. What a surprise...

    I don't have a FB account, won't get one either. But, you can see it without an account. I just am not going to bother! It's a pretty stupid way to do it, photos and clicking on them.

    Do you know who the developers are for these latest two you've listed? This Dark Cases: The Blood Ruby and Flights of Fancy: Two Doves? I may be wrong but the Flights of Fancy one looks like an ERS game. If so that's a definite pass for me.

    I highly recommend Teetat's Upcoming Games page -- it's completely awesome! Heart  From there, I got these:

    Dark Cases: The Blood Ruby Collector's Edition - HOG [Boolat Games]

    Flights of Fancy: Two Doves Collector's Edition - HOG [ERS Game Studios]

    So yes, Flights of Fancy is ERS.

    OK! Thank you! This Teetat's this is also for games coming to Big Fish as well I take it?  I'll definitely check out this site. Wow I haven't even demoed one of ERS games for about a year now and I can still recognize their games without even having to download it!Belly laugh

    Teetat's upcoming games are pretty much all for Big Fish, though they will be out at other portals, too Smile  Everything that's linked leads to a preview page with plenty of beautiful screens!

    Surface: The Pantheon Collector's Edition

    and

    Web of Deceit: Deadly Sands Collector's Edition

    While I have face book I think I'll just get the upcoming games from here. I can tell that Hondo is back to doing this again because it's always late afternoon early evening my time before he post it. When Seine took over for awhile well he (I think Seine is a he) really spoiled us as he posted it early.

    Another Surface?? Soo... is this series any good, or has it fallen prey to run-off-the-mill sequelitis? I'm playing first Surface now, and liking it, but in no hurry to finish it.

    Thanks so much for reposting the highlights here, genki. I have FB account, but I try to use it as little as possible. Basically it only serves as my visit card and something to confirm attendance in events.

    I don't have a Facebook account.  I don't trust FB, so I refuse to make an account Silly face  Luckily, I don't have to have one to check for the highlights.  Hondo HAS been slow in posting them, but as long as I remember, I'll get these posted as soon as he gets them up Sunny

    Not only has the highlights been slow posting but I've also noticed since the chat closed that at least about 3 times the new TGT hasn't been released on time, setting up the forums like the Cobi Treasures game that is now today's new game didn't get set up until after 11 a.m. and the TGT didn't get set up until after 2 p.m. today Big Fish time. Suspect

    I hope this Otherworld is as good as the first one.  I really enjoyed # 1.  #2  just didn't
    inspire me to buy.   After # 1,  it just seemed  average to me.
    I also hope the Beanstalk is as good as it sounds.

    Hondo wrote:★★ Hondo's Highlights: Oct 21-25 ★★

    Hi everyone! It's been an incredible journey, but I wanted to let you know that this is my final week in the pond, thus, my *final* post. Don't worry, the highlights will continue, but they may look a little different from here on out.

    So without any further ado, here's a glimpse at a few of this week's upcoming releases! (Sorry, no pictures this week.)

    -------------------

    Nevertales: The Beauty Within - Just when you were done with work for the day, a stranger comes knocking at your door. When you answer, all you find is a helpless, abandoned baby on your doorstep. Who does the baby belong to? Why were you chosen? The answers may surprise you in this page-turning Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game! #PC #Mac

    Dark Canvas: Blood and Stone - Who used the encasing device in the grisly murder of the sculptor and his bride? Explore a beautiful and romantic Greek village by the sea, as you use your investigative reporting skills to track down a desperate, haunted killer... before they kill again! #PC #Mac
    The rest of the post is about games coming out on other devices.

    Hondo is bidding us farewell -- not surprising at this point.

    It's not a pond, that's too friendly-sounding. It's a shark-infested corporate ocean. Gah!

    I agree! I must say I'm not surprised nor sadden by Hondo no longer posting the high lights. He was rarely timely with it. From what I read on face book the highlights are still going to be done and if so I think Seine should do it. He was always so timely with it. Yesterday was the first I'd bought anything in about a month. I haven't been able to find anything that interest me until the Nevertales game got released. I'll probably play that tomorrow. I had 2 game club credits sitting in my account which is a rarity I also won't be posting in the Big Fish forums any more. Way too weird and strict for me. alien2 The so called "forum rules" don't apply to everyone. I've been hanging out on face book playing farmville 2.

    I agree with you, Sportygal. Seine always posted the highlights early & I really appreciated that.

    I noticed you haven't been posting reviews over at BFG's forums and I wondered what was going on. There isn't hardly any long-time members posting reviews now, but I still read them.
    I didn't know BFG was being picky with their Reviewers, too.

    I'm really glad you stopped by, Sportygal.  I'm such a worrywart Silly face

    At this point, I'm only doing business with Big Fish when I have codes to use, or if they have a great deal.  They've done a great job ostracizing their customer base, that's for sure!

    This is also my only business with Big Fish as well. Just when I have codes to use and unless they run a sale the only way I'm buying any more games is on Monday when they have the bonus punch as long as that is still offered of course.
