Title: What's your favourite...
Post by: Yonkey on May 04, 2004, 10:44:37 PM
Mine's gotta be the hero fix-up station!  That was so cute seeing the Graham cameo as a robot or something, in dire need of repair!  ;P

Mine is the King Graham fly by.

Mostly because it's the only one I've seen/remember. :D

I've only seen the batmobile ; \ ..so i have to vote for that one... ugh, I have too little time to explore all eastereggs  :'(

My fave is the cameo of Cedric in Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist. He doesn't say anything, but when you try to talk to him the game says "You can almost hear him saying "That's ok Graham, I'll wait out HERE!"" or something like that. XD

Cedric shows up on the west part of the bridge after the snail stampede in that game.

Well, I chose the batmobile...but I wish I'd seen the king in the desert!  (makes a mental note to go back and look!)

I chose the Batmobile too!  Rob, how did you miss the SQ plug in KQ2?? :P
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: B'rrr on May 05, 2004, 08:33:18 AM
I don't know... I just can't recall it ; \ where was it? i think kq2 was the only game i played from all the options above... but still... can't recall sq plug in ...i'm going senile ; (

Rob -
KQ2 SPOILER ALERT!!


That KQ2 easter eggs happens when you look in the hole in the rock near the cave on the mountaintop you fly to using on the carpet. IIRC, it shows the intro screen of SQ (with the music).


Amazingly enough, I've seen all those easter eggs except for the SQ4 one. But I think my favorite would have to be the Laurel & Hardy easter egg from QFG3. The King's Quest series wasn't the best of them when it comes to easter eggs, not visual ones anyways. I hope that would be rectified in KQ9 ;)

2 other easter eggs I'd like to mention just for the heck of it - Rosella in the LSL2 barbershop, and on the QFG1 hieroglyphics at Erasmus's house. Anyone notice those?

I'd have to say Batmobile! Now was CÚsar driving?  
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Questing Character on May 05, 2004, 10:59:53 AM
I know the one you mean in QfG1, Storm, but I never played any LSLs...
Uhm, okay...it just posted this without me telling it to...O_o So, anyhow...EDIT:
I had forgotten about the Laurel and Hardy in QfG3....which then reminded me of the Awful Waffle Walker, which I think is up there on the visual easter eggs...
And then, of course, there's the x-ray glasses from QfG2.  There's two easter eggs from those, iirc.  First, wearing them in front of Ali Chica...and then, wearing them in Rasier when helping Zayishah.

Post by: Pwincess on May 05, 2004, 04:28:44 PM
My vote goes to the x-ray glasses in QFG2 (http://www.hero6.com/current/forum/icons/pic9.gif)
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Questing Character on May 05, 2004, 04:54:11 PM
That's what would have had my vote if I'd remembered it at the time!  I wish I could revote!
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: racx_00 on May 06, 2004, 04:59:49 AM

Thanks ;), ill remember to look out for that ;D
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Storm on May 08, 2004, 04:23:04 AM
I never saw the QFG2 x-ray glasses easter egg... haven't explored that game well enough yet :P

About the Awful Waffle Walker, I wasn't sure that's cosidered an easter egg... it was hilarious though, I could have chosen that as well. I'll just vote for "other" then - there are many easter eggs funnier than those specified in the poll, even if I can't remember them all :-\
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Questing Character on May 08, 2004, 06:26:25 AM
YOU NEVER SAW THE QFG2 X-RAY GLASSES EGG??  That was like *the* Easter Egg of the whole game!!  You must go and find it immediately!
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Storm on May 08, 2004, 07:32:32 AM
I will... when I have the time. I always hear people talk about QFG2 and say "WHAT? where was THAT in the game?" so I think I missed about half of it :P The whole paladin thing completely escaped me, for example :S
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Questing Character on May 08, 2004, 09:59:50 AM
That was in KQ2+, by AGDI.  I'm assuming that the eggs from that weren't included in the poll because the game wasn't made by Sierra...

FP had some pretty good easter eggs. The Cedric one was great, as was the note from "Kay Graham" :suffer:

Post by: InvertedSilence on May 09, 2004, 05:59:00 PM
I always used to read about one in kq5 where you throw Graham's cloak onto his sled after he crashes. Unfortunately I never got it to work.
Maybe it didn't exist ???
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Jael on May 10, 2004, 02:41:38 AM
The KQ5 egg only works on the disk version. Do you have the CD version maybe? There's a shot of it here, though:http://www.sierraplanet.com/kingsquest5/goodies.html (http://www.sierraplanet.com/kingsquest5/goodies.html)

On a largely unrelated note, can someone explain to me how to give a URL a title? I can't work it out ???. Curse my technological illiteracy >:(

Just wondering, since Kq5 came up before...is there a SAFE place where i can just download KQ5 for free, full version. If so, please tell me! KQ6 is my fav. one, so i minas well play 5  

...altohugh I'd much rather be Alex than Grahm...hm w.e.
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Storm on May 10, 2004, 05:49:52 PM
I could find a full KQ5 download, but without voices. However, I'm not sure the voices are something I'll miss playing KQ5. They're just bloody awful :-X
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: The Fat Emu on May 10, 2004, 06:54:22 PM
Gotta be the "Hero fix-up station" in LSL1.
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: James Thunderland on May 10, 2004, 07:36:32 PM
Gotta be honest, Storm, sound, no matter how bad, isn't much of a factor for me.  But, seriosuly, what i want is that i know its virus free...if i cant get a sound patch, well then w.e. It would realy stink though if i download it, no sound, and i get a virus lol.

Anyway, if you could, Storm, just give me a site or two of where i could find it, i know nothing of this stuff i never downlaod anything, i just buy it. This being so old, though, my luck on that is very low. But if you could, thanks alot.

Definately the best Easter Egg in the original KQs was THE EGG in KQ5 with the sled. However, the best easter egg is the KQ1 Tierra remake when you knock on the mountain door. KQ2 remake was also great for easter eggs.
Title: Re:What's your favourite...
Post by: Storm on May 12, 2004, 07:25:18 PM
But the KQ5 sled easter egg wasn't funny... it was mostly weird :-\

KQ2+ had great easter eggs! the madness of king Graham and the different realms were the best :D

BTW, I think the "knock on the mountain door" easter egg from KQ1 VGA remake was also in the original version... at least on the Sierra SCI remake :S

What about Sanford & Son in (I think) Quest for Glory4? It probably wouldn't be considered an easter egg, but I like it more than the rest.

Welcome Louisiana Night  ;D

I hope you enjoy your time here and post muchly!

EDIT: Lol forgot to say which is my fave! I liked the batmobile the most, manily because I only ever saw it once when I was 6 and spent years trying to see it again but never did :( The unobtainable is always cooler.

The unobtainable is always cooler.

I completely and totally agree, Alex.  Sorry, dear, you just walked right into that one!  :-*
