Adventure Game Goodness

They are mine! ALL MINE! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! Its a Lucasarts "entertainment pack" 4 classic adventure/point and click game goodness in one box for.. wait for it... £9.99!

Game have a sale on atm for loyalty card customers, turns out that I have one! This pack that I've been lusting over for the past month is in the sale! whoohoo! The only way it could get any better is to swap out the rather poor "Steven Speilburg's The Dig" for Monkey Island 3, then you'd have a pretty much unbeatable combo. As it is... whoo!

Must.. write... twilight.. not play games.

I also picked up the PC version of the Spiderman 2 game, as that was on sale as well (yet its new, go figure). Well.. it blows rancid donkey balls. I'm taking it back today, its THAT BAD. "But Greg!" I hear those of you who played the console version cry "Wait! aren't you enjoying the free roaming kick ass gameplay?" To this I answer... no. Why not? Because its not there.

Its like they took everything that was so goddamn rocking about the console title, and replaced it with a 4 year old edutainment title. Its so bad I feel my very soul has been tarnished just by playing it. With this game Activision and Fizz Factor have taken a sticky rancid dump upon, not only a great licence, but upon the keyboards of all PC gamers. Not even Bruce Campbell's voice over can raise this game up from the pit it belongs in.

At least I can comfort myself with four.. well three.. games from way back when PC games were good... *sigh*
