King's Quest 2016

Well, well, well! Will you look at that? King's Quest chapter 3 is coming out in April!

And looks like we're going into territory that I really like as well: Romance between Graham and Valanice is something the canon seriously needs more of!

Awesome!  Yeah, I was hoping they'd get into that too. 

Hmm... I just realized... they call this episode "Once Upon a Climb", Graham rescued Valanice from a tower, and she's wearing a purple dress



Why am I suddenly thinking yet again, about a certain Disney film?

Will you shut up about Tangled? For god's sake, the idiotic things you fixate on...

Look, man... I didn't design Valanice's dress, nor did I come up with the episode's title or plot, and you're the one who bashed the game's use of modern speak in the first place; which prompted me to bring up the movie the first time, so don't blame me!

And it's a good movie, so screw you!

Hey, hey, both of you, quit! Could always be worse- could be Frozen.  ;)

Anyway, I'm fixating on Graham and Val. I don't care if this chapter retcons stuff from KQ2, just that they do that relationship well.

Also, in the Destructoid article, I like the fifth picture. (I would show it but I embarassingly can't seem to figure out how to post pictures on here. Can't paste into Insert Image.) Nice of you to drop in, Graham!

He certainly look more masculine now too, though I would've thought he'd have that appearance in episode 2; since it takes place after he's become king.

Well, judging from his reactions to the guards demands in the intro, he's not been on the throne very long.

Plus, he's an archer and besides for your arms and back iirc, you don't need much muscle for that. And even then, Graham doesn't seem like much of a guy who would want to fight unless he has to, relying more on negotiating or being sneaky (which you would need less bulk for because you're able to slip into smaller areas and you'd be quieter and faster on your feet). Though just because he didn't have bulk, didn't mean he wasn't strong given he uppercutted a being made out of rock with no trouble.

No complaints about that here.  :)

I will say though Valanice's dress sorta looks like a cross between Rapunzel's and Jane Porter's.

Also, is it just me or is Valanice a little... too close to Graham? I know he's handsome and sweet, Val, but PERSONAL SPACE!

Oh boy, it's sexy time. Eat your heart out Leisure Suit Larry, cause King's Quest is coming to town!

On a more serious note, however the romance is handled, it can't possibly be less sexy than Box Office Bust.

Well if it plays out as sleazy as Box Office Bust did, then Graham will have to [CENSORED] with Valanice's [CENSORED] and, using the magic mirror, do some [STILL CENSORED], possibly use the magic shield to [I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH CENSORING THIS POST NEEDS] and maybe get Pillare and Olfie involved for a little group [THIS IS NOWHERE NEAR CENSORED ENOUGH].

After 31 years maybe Valanice will finally get a personality.

Knowing TOG, she'll probably be energetic, bubbly and insufferably adorable.

Hey, no complaints there.

Better insufferably adorable than stuffing the series full of toilet and sexual humor. The former I've really started to grow out of as I've gotten older (and thusly I cringe whenever I see it in movie trailers because it's not really all that funny to me anymore and just makes me think, "Really? You're really being that immature for your jokes? Even if you argue it's for kids, kids aren't that dumb."), whereas the latter I've never been a fan of (as Numbers has seen with my stance against LSL5-7).

Hey I'd be energetic too after being cooped up in a tower forever.
