Alright everyone, busy day today so not much time for my usual long blurb.
It's nice to be halfway through the week, though. I have to say. I'm definitely ready for the weekend.
You know, it would probably be a good idea if I actually addressed the subject matter of the above image, which is the Adventure genre. Today's unofficial topic: what is your favorite adventure game (Zelda doesn't count. I'm talking old-school Lucasarts or Sierra type stuff)?
Mine had to be The Legend of Robin Hood: Conquest of the Longbow by Sierra. Shoot, that's a long name...
Look at those awesome graphics.
Anyway, it was a really good game. You'd go all around Sherwood and interact with all the major characters of the Robin Hood stories. You'd infiltrate a castle, escape a dungeon, talk to willow-the-wisps, actual willows, and partake in the archer contest. Unfortunately, I never beat the damn game. I always got caught on the day Maid Marian was being burned at the stake. I had a puzzle box I had to open to get out a magic ring of fire resist, but I could never figure out how to open it.
Oh well, that's life for you. Go on a crusade, come home to find everything you know has been turned topsy-turvy by a greedy government official, rebel against said government, meet a girl, fall in love, girl burns at a stake because you can't open a stupid puzzle box. Amirite?
Thanks to Mr Marsu for the image! If you'd like to enter the contest, please submit all your entries to this link for a chance to be the featured image for the Open Forum. We're always looking for new header images.
Also, don't forget that the Kickstarter for our very own Habboi's A Hat in Time is still going strong. If you haven't already contributed, I strongly urge you to do so! The game looks amazing, and we want to make sure he has so much work to do that he can't post here anymore!
Keep the conversation going over at TAYCLASSIC, where you can escape from the daily grind or gush about how much you love what you're doing! Or, you know, post about whatever. I'm not the boss of you. I'm not the boss of anybody...
