So, am I the only one...
« on: September 19, 2010, 01:42:25 AM »
...who, during cutscenes, moves the crown around to put it on people's heads?

It was something I did a lot during KQVI and VII, and I was so happy to see the crown return so I can continue to crown anybody and everybody!

That is so funny you should say that MangoMercury  :)
I've been playing King's Quest games since I was little girl, and I would always "crown" the characters.

And now, while playing Episode 2: Two Households, I started "crowning" the characters again without even thinking about it  :D

I think everybody does it. I did it since I started playing the series, starting with KQ6. I never even thought to bring it up. It was just one of those things that I did, but I never questioned it.  :-\

I can just imagine Alexander holding that skull in front of his face and making a silly monster voice...if only he had a cowardly sidekick like Cedric. ::)

Glad to know I'm not the only one!

Also, seeing big-head Graham totally gives me the incentive to play KQV that I needed - it's the only one of the first seven that I am yet to complete (just finished IV yesterday), and being able to give Graham a big bobblehead will make it worth it. 

As will being able to give Alexander a creepy skullface, Jafar!

I always do that, too (in TSL, as well)! ;D

My favourite one on TSL is putting it on top of the Arch Druid's leopard hood.  KING LEOPARD.

Oh my gosh! Yes I've always done that too! I also used to get mesmerised by the way that in KQ6, when the dialog portraits are showing up, the crown icon sits perfectly in the little gold triangle thing. Did anybody else do that?

YES.

What's this little gold triangle you're referring to?

LOL! I would ALWAYS do that with the crown! Haha, never thought of it with the talk icon though. I think I might've unintentionally done the skull thing in KQ6 though :)

I believe this is the one Duke is referring to, but when the character portraits come up for dialogue on KQ6, the picture frames have gold triangles about halfway along each of the four sides.  I always balance it on the top one.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7m4ZrXGfG8 - for example.

Also, I LOVE the NBA Jam reference; that was one of my favourite games as a kid!
