Just finished with Monkey Island 2. Fantastic game! I can definitely see why many people put it in this top 10 adventure games. The game just had such an open world, the locations were so diverse I never got bored with them, and there were so many puzzles laid around in the second part that I really felt that I could just play any of them in the order I felt like playing them at my own leisure. Fun!

Good work! I watched through the end (Shout Out! :highfive:). I left an explanation about the elevator for you in the comments for the video on YT. :yes:


If you're looking for freeware games, check out Toegoff's Free March.  They're good stuff, all legit.

I wish you well, Dru. I've tried watching LPs of GK, but that drunken Madame, or whatever she is, just drives me insane with her narration. It's not like I expect that awesome Bastion narrator, but I'd much prefer one who can speak coherently. :P

My new life goal is to hire the Bastion narrator to re-narrate every single game I ever played.

I think he could've done great with KQV

"Listen, all this takes a lot of getting used to, and you do get used to it, after awhile.  Theres three things I'll always miss though.

1. Not having a talking owl follow me all the time

2. Wellll forget about 2.

And three, I miss the text parsers, folks in Daventry knew how to type a command.  Sure we have some convenience with the ol point and click interface, but imagine hundreds of different commands, and only about ten of them actually worked.  Those were the days."

There isn't a thumbsup emote big enough for this comment :thumbsup:

No need for praise, anything sounds cool if you read it in the narrator's voice.  In fact if he had voiced Cedric he'd probably be everyones' favorite KQ character.

Sorry, but that reminds me of a phrase: "You can't polish a turd; You can only roll it in glitter." Cedric is a turd of a character no matter how you try to sugarcoat it.

Beginning a blind Quest for Glory 1 game! I'll be playing as a thief hybrid and do my best to troll and grief if possible. Should be fun! I'll have new parts loaded on the 1st page where I have my other video links

I saw the first video. I'm glad that time recorded. :highfive: I know Toegoff has had his fair share of difficult recordings, so it seems to go with the territory (since screen capture programs have never been great).

QfG / HQ EGA. Now there's a purest. I'm sure you'll make plenty of fans here by playing that version.
