You never know when I'll appear in a cloud of smoke, though...
Hahaha!! :D I just clicked the link in a quiet classroom and everyone surrounding me got to hear the joy of 8-bit King's Quest. Thanks Jafar!  ;D

You know, with all this talk of some of the old Sierra folks returning to the gaming spotlight, kinda reminds me of a dream I had recently.

In the dream, Graham was sitting in a big secret room of Castle Daventry where there was a gigantic computer monitor- with pretty much EVERY Sierra game on it! Including King's Quest! and it came with a phone too, where he could contact various Sierra employees (Roberta Williams, Jane Jensen, the Two Guys enc), and the various heroes of their games (like Roger Wilco, Laura Bow, Gabriel Knight enc), and also other companies like the folks at Infamous Adventures and Pheonix Online Studios- a desk, a keyboard, a device that opened up portals to the other Sierra game universes, and a dramatic swivel chair.

Of course, he can no longer hang out with most of these people after what they call "The Hub" (aka the Sierra offices) was shut down and now is owned by Activision. Thusly, leaving most heroes of Sierra (that weren't picked up for remakes or fangames) wondering what to do with their lives now that their adventures are over and they're basically unemployed. So, to keep on adventurin', Graham bands everyone together he can still find, and they dtart hatching a plan to storm the offices of Activision and get back Sierra! Roger, Gabriel and the QFG Heroes were to stage a distraction, while Graham was leading the charge against the leader of Activision (whose name I can't remember. The one who said "I want to take the fun out of games.")...

And then I woke up.

Wow. Just...wow. That's instense! :o Perhaps you were thinking about the days of yore where in the Companion it says that Manannan has a computer screen in his study to contact our world? When you play KQ3 you see something like one sitting on one of the shelves. Fact. :yes: I haven't dreamed about King's Quest in a long time, though I have had dreams about it before. I'm actually surprised, since I've been on such a Sierra kick! As I stated in another thread, I recently played through both Laura Bow games, and right now I'm working through KQ7 (for like the 3,592,745th time).

Okay, when I was a little girl, I never finished The Dagger of Amon Ra, but I just beat it over the summer and I gotta say, I am MAD at myself. Not because I never finished it as a kid, but because I had SUCH A HARD TIME WITH IT. And when I beat it, Laura ended up getting shot to death in her bed because I she didn't solve the mystery corrcetly. I was like, "Double you tee eff?!" It was a long and arduous journey, and I was not satisfied with the ending at all! I Googled a walkthrough afterwards to see what I missed, and it turns out I missed a LOT. And here I was, thinking I was kicking murder mystery butt, but no, I sucked. >:( Grr.

Plus, like I said, the murderer chasing me around scared the mess outta me.  :dead:

See, I used to play that game when I was really little. :P And I never even made it into the museum. :P But one day last summer I replayed it with Jamie and we were infuriated by how utterly unfair the game was and how impossible it was not to miss things on the first playthrough. XD And the fact that it was so needlessly punishing with such random and senseless deaths and that people kept interrupting our investigations just made it much, much worse. :P We weren't even aware that it was possible to overhear conversations at the beginning of the night. XD Anyway, we made it through and survived, but we then decided that Sierra games were fundamentally unfair, especially Laura Bow. :P And her voice is infuriating. :P And she is the worst feminist ever. :P

If it wasn't for hercrabiness I wouldn't have known who Laura Bow was. Through her, I ot introduced to Lateblt as well.

Speaking of which... *goes to Youtube, to subscribe to him... and she gets lines of squares and codes for her troubles?*

Uhhh...

Are American Pancakes really all that special? XD I mean, when my father made pancakes, they were incredible, but other than that, they never were that high on my list of favorite breakfast foods. :P

Roger Wilco (Space Guy!)! I do wish I managed to keep in contact with more people though...that'd make reunions sooooooooo much easier to arrange!

OH MY GOD, I totally agree with you, Deloria! Some of the stuff I found out I missed I was totally, completely pissed about. I was like, "Really? Oh, I'm sorry, it should have been totally obvious that I was to listen behind the tapestry!" **Grumbles explicits under my breath**

Pancakes. I'm with you, Jafar. They're nice, but not my favorite. Truth be told, I could live without them if I was forced. They're homey and American and smell good, but they kind of make me feel sick after I eat them.
