Actually. despite the bugs, I think Episode 3 is my favorite so far :P  Mainly because the puzzle difficulty has gone up!  And believe me, I love me some hard puzzles.  But the puzzles in the first 2 were just too easy for me.  This time I'm taking my time, and I'm enjoying it a lot more, I've actually gotten a little stumped here and there.  I know I fussed about the bugs, but I still like the game, I was just surprised.  I've been following TSL when it first started as KQ9: Ever Cloak has a Silver Lining, and it's been a long wait, but I don't mind waiting an extra month for an episode to get bug fixes :p  I have a lot of games to play through >.<  And I just got Jane Jensen's new game too >.<  so... take your time with Episode 4 :D

Trust me, we'll be taking our time with episode 4. We're pretty intent on that right now. Speaking of Gray Matter, I have to get a copy of it somewhere... It's just that my local best buy and targets don't carry it apparently... The demo, in my opinion, was absolutely amazing.

I loved the demo too, just got my copy today.  I actually pre-ordered it from Amazon.com because I could not find it anywhere.  It's a shame, they really should have marketed the game more.  I didn't even hear about it until it was mentioned on some of the TSL news :)

Well, I didn't get too far in epi-bug-sode 3... right now I am stuck with Graham and Edgar in a non-topic conversation (the box says: Select Topic, and there are no topics to select) and will have to shut down the game via the task manager....

All of them? How many are there? I felt a bit dizzy and like reading something as in "a rose is a rose is a rose.... "

I believe the Buffer patch covers the majority of the problems that have come up so far, but you'd be better off asking Weldon to be certain.

Yeah, I agree that we should have held off just a few more days or even a week on the release date.  There are a still a few bugs in the tower sequence that annoy me.  What can I say- bugs just annoy me.  I just hope they get fixed come Episode 4 or the Director's cut.

The game was indeed tested but we were on a bit of a time constraint and we had to focus on getting a lot of major bugs out of the way.

Actually, it was Every Cloak has a Silver Lining. I miss that name, but The Silver Lining works too.
