Well, it's finally here!! The wait is over (at long last) so what does everyone think?

Post your impressions and any tips or cheats in this thread. I'll start by saying I had NO IDEA how to kill the Nazi general at the end of level 9. By that point you've already been tortured and stripped naked, leaving you with the broken pistol as your only weapon.

You can't get near enough to the general to pistol whip him the way you did the hellhound that was guarding the Sacred Undergarments, so how are you supposed to beat this guy?

Here's a hint...in the SW corner of the room there's a suspiciously out-of-place Persian carpet. Lure the general there by impersonating his mistress (you meet her in the "milk" bar where she's dancing in a cage), and then pull the rope hanging from the ceiling. It's a trap door. ;)

Anyway I've now gotten the grenade launcher and I decapitated the mayor's cat (just for fun), so I'm off to the time machine again. I hear there's a later chapter in the game that takes place at Caligula's 21st Birthday Party, so I really need to arm up before then.

How far is everyone else? And (spoiler alert) I just realized that Mick Jagger is the voice of Jack the Ripper. :-O That explains why the Saucy Jack song break was so good!!

This game looks great! Realistic! Scary! I even heard Austin Powers and the Frankenstein monster and even Tingle make a cameo!

Oh and to kill the nazi general in lvl 9, buy a Old Nokia phone from Agent Smith in level 6, and throw it at the general's head.

Guys, you need to buy this game now! We need a sequel so support the Devs with the money they rightfully deserve. I mean, look at how much hard work they have put into it.

It was the inclusion of recordings off speech made by Sidney Poitier taken from various movies and being edited to fit the game that first caught my interest in the game, the fact that many top ex rare staff where involved including a few ex freeradical members responsible for timesplitters was the icing on the cake, apparently Chuck Norris gives it 3!!! thumbs up(the one under the chin watch family guy :/)

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

Just beat Sasquatch. :-O Now THERE was a boss battle. And who expected the twist where Sasquatch turns out to be YOU from the future, and THAT's who you were tracking the whole time!?

Of course it causes a little bit of confusion over the realization that you're actually the illegitimate son of Mohammed, but I expect that all to be explained in the next level, which I see takes place aboard the Russian starship Leviathan in the year 6078!

SPOILERS, MAN! >:[ I'm still stuck on that damn fight where you're pitted against your sow of a mother-in-law, thank you very much. i usually get to that fight with low HP anyway thanks to her rabid feline minions (freakin' hoarders and their freakin' animals), and then she just guilt-trips you up and sits on you, draining you of the rest of your will to live. sigh.

What is this discussion? Topic is Lola's Alphabet Train Impressions and comments have nothing to do with that game!? If you are seriously interested about kids ABC game it can be found from here:

Level 63 was a big disappointment. It's just a full-length ebook of the novel Ulysses plopped into the middle of the game, which you have to click through page by page before you answer a series of essay questions at the end.

The worst part? You have to wait to have your essay graded by the developer. What kind of turnaround time can I expect? I hear level 64 features a complete reunion of the cast of Arrested Development (playing the voices of that team of evil raccoons I've been hearing about since level 3!) and I'd really like to experience it.

Dude, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING! The Mayors cat was actually the guardian of the sacred emeralds (comes up in level 74, sorry for the spoilers) By decapitating it then you miss out on 12 bonus rooms, 4 additional power gems, and infinite incendiary rounds for your Pimp-cane shotgun!!!

I swear... am I the ONLY one that knows how to play Lola's Alphabet Train?

Anyone pick up Lola's Math Train yet? I just want to know if it carries over your stats from the first game. I'd hate to have to build up my Orc army again from scratch, and I've done so much grinding to max out my Vibrating Palm attack that I'm not sure I'd want to start all over again. :/

Are we allowed to nominate this for Hall of Fame status?

Anyways, I can't wait for Chicken's review of the game. It sounds like a wild time ;)

i am gobsmacked that my mother was an inspiration for a video game...the proof is in that last sentence.
