Everybody can play it, but with friends around its hilarious. 9/10.

@#42 Dazza-Have you played Myst, any Adventure Company products, Sierra, Lucas Arts, Dynamix or any free adventure games before?
Myst is the biggest trial and error adventure game. It suffers (yea I said it, its true) from the biggest vague game play ever that you can find in any adventure title, also item finding plague its beautiful graphics.
That being said it looks like a lot of you have not played adventure games before.

I do not agree with this review.

It doesn't explain in detail the lows of this game, heck, I find Kotaku's short reviews more detailed because they go literally straight to the highs and lows of the game.

I have been playing this game with no hints and I have been doing fine and liking it while solving puzzles. I really love its humor and have not seen the comics prior playing this game. Its humor is like a take on Laurel & Hardy, mind you not the genius of it, but the relationship between them. Strong Bad (your main character) could be the fat one but evil and brute, Homestar could be the thin one who is dumb but in this case talks a lot.

The shower puzzle is no trial and error. You have to listen to the audio clues given by the characters. The costume puzzle also, the main character (Strong Bad) gives you clues as to how to solve it.

You gotta thank Tell Tales Games for not including vague puzzles or complete randomness like for example
King's Quest V time puzzles and strange devices in the castle, in one of them you have no idea on what to do next and the answer was to wait?

A very funny game, too bad fanboyism had to surface. Giving gameplay score being compared to a non playable media even though the game in itself its really funny is sad. People really, this game comes from the good folks who remade Sam & Max. If you did not like that you will not like the game, otherwise its really good.



Smash_Eggs_Garlic commented on Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels:

I call it Super Mario Bros Remix.
The new elements (Red Piranha Plant,Green Trampoline, Wind ) look like cosmetic changes,the Red Piranha may be the new thing that will give you those bad headaches again plus those new jumps of faith.
How to distinguish Jumps of Faith:
Super Mario Bros The Lost Levels isn't that IMPOSSIBLE once you know whats coming,just like the original,but every time you play it,
it will STILL require precise controls. Playing as either Mario Bros will give you a different gameplay experience, and yes the game can be beat with Mario or Luigi. If you really liked Super Mario Bros , buy this one.



Smash_Eggs_Garlic commented on F-Zero X:

Anyone races on the Silence High Speed track multiple times in a row in multiplayer?
The best track for multiplayer is Silence High Speed.
Every player gets tense and to lean the vehicle everyone is not moving their arms, legs asthey are steering with zen patience transfered to their thumbs so as to not cause sliding. The losers and winners want to race again and tweak their vehicle's settings believing that their prefered vehicle (or driver sometimes) can beat the other vehicles. It seems everyone I've played against wants to be able to place first in Silence High Speed in 4 persons multiplayer.
(Hums Mute City theme song).



Smash_Eggs_Garlic commented on EU VC Releases - 5th October - Fatal Fury and ...:

Europeans must be jumping and breaking roofs in joy.
Even though here in America we already had a few of them, Europe got too much awesome games at once(yes I'm even counting Fatal Fury as one of them,cool game, give it a try if you DON'T REALLY MIND. in comparison to other games at the same price).
I suggest Fatal Fury Battle Archives Vol. 1 instead if you are going to spend 900 Wii points in FF1.
Still playing Mario Bros. Lost Levels & Breath of Fire II.
