I distinctly remember being one of those people. And I distinctly remember you defending the design.

I don't remember you saying that, actually. Unless we unexpectedly met on a Facebook thread, I don't remember bringing it up THAT much. Especially not here.

Star Wars Battlefront 3 is just called "Star Wars: Battlefront.

I was real excited about that game, until I found this:

Graham's design is already slowly changing:
KQ0 era (Ch1) design:
No definition to body, no muscles on stomach or frame, walks a little slouched.

KQ1.2 (Ch2) design:
Bracers, lean arm muscles, solid chest frame.

To be fair, the titles of the chapters have puns in them (so far). A Knight to Remember, Rubble Without a Cause...I assume the other 3 will as well.

Anybody else hoping for some of the original characters to appear in later episodes?

I've never once joined a Sierra Facebook group of any kind, so we've definitely never talked outside of this forum.

As long as their personalities are changed for the better. I wouldn't be happy seeing Alexander and Rosella young again, and would like for them to have matured. The second chapter allegedly is part of young Graham's romance with young Valanice, so we might see Alexander and Rosella as children or something. Hopefully it won't turn into King's Quest 2 1/2: Breast Intentions.

Matured characters are always good.

If that were the case it would probably only show Rosella as a child... otherwise the creators will have really flubbed with their lore

While the new series is called a "reboot" by many, the original games are canon to this one and thus this game, though it retcons some bits, is a continuation of the old ones. Gwendolyn was named such because Alexander is proud of having overcome his slavery, so, Alexander being kidnapped and being a slave is not something they forgot.

Let's hope. They might change how he gets kidnapped or when, but it's important that Alexander is young enough that he doesn't know who his parents are when Manannan captures him.

I do hope they do go into that. It's got potential to make a really good story, especially if the chapters are about conflucts throughout Graham's life.

And in episode 5, Graham will go in for a colonoscopy.

"All right, Graham," Crispin whispered reassuringly, "Bite down on this branch, and whatever you do, don't spit it out. This will only take a minute."

It's kind of weird that the hype surrounding the new game has died down so much. Flashforward to two months ago and almost the entire adventure game community was abuzz about it, either hyped or cynical. Now the release announcement for the second Chapter barely got any attention and there's no real buzz. It's strange. The game's rated in the 80s on Metacritic so it's not as if it did poorly in terms of reception.

Aw, no need to feel down about it, man. I think we're just waiting the next chapter patiently and have exhausted pretty much everything there is to talk about in the first chapter.
