Yeah, I have that kind of humor whenever I'm messing around.
I have no mouth, and I must scream.

This level had been frustrating for me.  I played through from my Chapter 1 completed game and lost many of the prisoners since I wasn't sure what I was doing.  I should have copied my Chapter 1 completed game first.  :P

You can try Chapter 2 from the start, though it picks a path you may not have done in Chapter 1.  I may do that again because I think I finally figured out the order of operations to keep mostly everyone alive.

But the auto save feature here really is awful.  For Chapter 1, sure, it was a pain that you couldn't go back and see certain paths.  But I think if you lose certain people,, you're just stuck.

Not necessarily.  There is at least one point in which you can still make it to the end.

That's good to know, thanks Jack!

Still... I just would feel terrible about not getting everyone out. They're counting on me as their King, after all.

Well, like I said...

This episode seems to have gotten slightly lower scores than the first one did. That doesn't bode well for me, as I was already not a fan of the first episode. I can only imagine what Rock Knight's reaction to this one will be.

Well, I finished it today!

I actually really liked it! I was worried that I wouldn't, but good to see that I was wrong. :)

You like a lot of things, though. Even...

*drum roll*

...KQ7.

Heyo!

That said, it's not like I think you're brainless or anything. You have your reasons for liking KQ7, which was more divisive amongst the fanbase than an outright disappointment the way MoE was, and you also have your reasons for hating Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail, which a lot of people enjoyed. I think you're just more easy-to-please than some of the more rabid Sierra fans, who will not be mentioned in this post.

It helps that I never grew up with Sierra, I suppose. I don't really have nostalgic standards for them, other than "Tell me a good story" and "Make me give a damn about the characters by making have personalities and emotions and development" which so far, the new KQ has succeeded.

Thanks for not thinking that I'm brainless. I appreciate that, really! :) Especially when I admit that I don't consider myself all that smart in terms of gaming anyway. You know that puzzle way back in the beginning of chapter one where you're using the feeding contraption to reach the Magic Mirror? Took me 20 minutes to solve that. Toegoff, a guy who's almost always blind as an LPer, is playing that game and he solved it within like 2 minutes.

I did like the ending scene for this chapter though.

(And putting my thoughts on that under spoiler tags.)

I liked the ending too!

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Heck, the only thing I wasn't fond of was the "Dialogue skip" feature. Not because it (apparently as I never actually used it in-game) skipped the entire cutscene instead of line by line, but because I was taking pictures as I played, and when it was a cutscene that popped up everytime I went FN+F12. Kinda distracting!

I didn't mind the skip option for some things.  I think it made sense to not allow you to skip if it was the first time.  But any other time afterwards, then have the skip option.

Also... I've been thinking back to chapter one recently and I've been thinking something about Graham.
