You know, I can't believe I didn't even THINK of Modern Times! I was so hung up on the Edward Gorey look and narration!

Re: Gamer on a Budget Review - Organ Trail by William LJ Gal

Joseph, everytime you put one up I'll have another in the email for you by day's end.

Actually, I'm not including sales prices. The games have to exit the gate at $9.99 or less. I want to make sure I'm not reviewing games that were once AAA and had hit the review circut as such already.

Re: Gamer on a Budget Review - Dear Esther by William LJ Gal

The interesting difference between Riven/Myst and Dear Esther is that in the Cyan games you could click/interact overtly with the world. You could move an object, or toy with a puzzle... Dear Esther has NONE of that. You have a flashlight that clicks on and off automatically, and that is it. You sim...

Re: Non-Trek Sci-Fi Thread

Gotta say that Twilight Zone really had an impact on me. My TV exposure was fairly limited, but that and Perry Mason were the two shows I watched most growing up.

Twilight Zone had a unique combination of terror and wonder that taught me life lessons constantly.

There will be one every week. I won't review a game over ten bucks!

Re: What are you playing right now?

Finished Shadowrun Returns. VERY well written, but too easy for me. I can't wait to see the mod community get into this toolset.

Onto DLC for Dishonored.

Sucking eight dicks in a row at the underpass to get someone to click a link to my novel on amazon has been TAXING. I'd much rather just suck one!

Re: Winterwind Ad Policy - Discussion

Honestly... I have no idea how to market my novel. Think advertising on this site may not be a bad idea, when I have the money. How would I swing that?

Re: The Usefulness of a Three-Legged Dog by William LJ Galai

Thank you, lads!

I'm going to produce another short story soon about a woman who works in a concentration camp during WWII. More thematically based than plot. I'm still getting a feel for it. I had finished the novel last year, and it isn't selling much so any exposure as a writer I'll take!

Re: Borderlands 2

The DLC for Borderlands was WAAAY better than the main game. So part 2 could be fun, but I just don't have the time for it.

I actually got my nephew Torchlight 2 and he and I along with my wife and brother-in-law play four person co-op and it is a ton of fun.

Re: Bioshock Infinte

I found the combat weaker than in Bioshock 1, but I REALLY loved the atmosphere and characters.

Ending clicked perfectly and I saw where they were going with it. Brilliantly executed and thematic.
