Banter and Chit-Chat! / Life and what's Living for
« on: December 11, 2018, 05:49:58 AM »
Ok, this topic is kind of sappy I guess, About ten years ago I ran into a few folk, who had a web site called Infamous Adventures. It evolved to Infamous Quests.  I met some folks who liked, old sierra,or Lucas Arts games. Just old classic games that I enjoyed playing. Just a bunch of nerds/geeks who like me enjoyed the former... Now some years gone, These cool folks made a couple I enjoy..for almost free. QFI/Order of the Thorne. Sure, they were not free, and cost all who gave time,some dollars,who put time and effort into them to make money. But they brought me back to my childhood, to a sense of adventure. One that I was happy to support and pay for. Maybe I am a old guy, for That one Moment I had my childhood back, it's not like today's shit games, with violence/kill everyone. With the games I speak of, there is a goal, with humor and fun that is sorely lacking in games today.  TO all that still loves adventure games I salute you, and I will support you, monetary or however i can.   Sorry for the Rant, but Thank-you, Steve, Shawn,Jason. Jen, everyone who made an effort to surprise and revive life, to a genre that will will never die.  Thanks guys and gals.... Chadly.....

Banter and Chit-Chat! / What's your favorite fast food joint?
« on: December 04, 2018, 12:21:21 PM »
As the topic line suggests, I am hungry for good 'ol American unhealthy fast food. So what's your favorite? I am torn between three: Chick Fil A (Don't care about their religion or politics, they make the best chicken), Burger King, and lastly Wendys. BK whoppers are the best. Wendy's chili and the Baconator, plus frostys! Damn now I;m really hungry. Also Taco Bell is a favorite. (However they should call it taco hell sometimes. Lol.

  Five Guys Burgers and Fries in also Awesome.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Old Sierra game nostalgia
« on: December 01, 2018, 09:42:27 AM »
As the header lists, I recently got a hankering to play old Sierra games from my youth. So I bought them all on GOG.com, and played them in a marathon. Kings Quests, Space Quests, Police Quests, Hero's Quests (oops I mean Quest for Glory), and a few obscure classics like Codename Iceman (frustrating), Gold Rush, Conquest of the Longbow and Finally Conquest if Camelot. It took awhile, but was fun. The 80's/90's was the golden era of adventure games. Today;s game son't even come close. Yes they are graphically superior, better sound, etc, but are limited to FPS or third person. I truly enjoy games like QFI/Order of the Thorne for their homage to the former games snd wisg=h more were made. But that;s just wishful thinking as games have evolved.  Chadly. 8)

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Survival or Things we Take for Granted
« on: November 30, 2018, 01:04:19 PM »
   Hi all. 

    Here is a little essay on things we take for granted. Every day i get up, I turn on my coffee maker, then i get in the shower.  What if one day I got up and there was so electricity? No running water? No natural gas to heat my house. I could'nt go to the store to buy groceries, gasoline for the car, etc.  Think about it. All we take for granted. No power means no fresh clean water, no sewage removal, no heat, no food, no medicine for illness. In a NY minute we would revert to a Agriculture society over-night as it was 200 years ago.  Suddenly people would deforest the woods to burn for heat and light. Clean water that's something we really take for granted, yet 2,000,000,000 today don't have it. Basic social norms disappear. It would be law of the jungle. People would kill for a loaf of bread, a gallon of gasoline, medicine, or just about anything. Yes there have been many books, tv shows, about movies about what i'm talking about.
   My question is this: Are you prepared for the above? Myself, I know how to hunt, fish, start a fire without the use of a lighter or matches. I can build a structure to keep me out if the elements. I know basic first-aid. I can Survive for awhile at least.  I used to laugh at the shows on tv about "Dooms-Day preppers." However I know some folks that have years of supplies put-away, that have self-contained bunkers, stocked with supplies/guns.  In a minute like in the movies we could be hit with a virus that kills off 99.9% of the human race. or plants, animals, or some kind of eco-disaster.
    Now I;m not trying to frighten anyone, but it makes me wonder why in this country (USA) we spend billions on weight-loss supplements, entertainment, military, and not on infrastructure, Space Exploration, renewable energy etc. What happends when the last drop of Oil is pumped from the ground, or coal dug from the earth?  I'm pretty sure that the Earth will survive us as humans, as it's been around for 4.5 billion years. Is it human arrogance to think that we can actually end all life on this planet? We have only been here for a fraction of time. Yeah, im sure the Earth will be here long after we go the way of the Dinosaurs....Chadly. 8)

   The point is that I am happy for the small things I have: my health, the health of my family, that I have food, a place to reside, etc.  I used to get pissed that I couldn't go on vacation to the beach, buy a sports car, buy some trivial things. The older I get the more Thankful I am for simple things.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / SpaceVenture a Two Guys Game
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:50:23 PM »
Hey all.

   Anybody else wondering when and if this game is coming out. This game is nearly 7 years in the making, and im wondering if it will be all that was promised.  I loved the Space Quest games by Sierra and Scott Murphy/Mark Crowe a.k.a. The Two guys from Andromeda.  While this game isn't Space Quest 7, it is I feel the Spiritual Successor.  Over on their Kickstarter page comments from backers have gotten REally Nasty. Here are some of my thoughts: 1) What was Scott Murphy's involvement? Did he write the story and dialog? He has been absent from any updates for years. Apparently the poor guy has major health issues. 2)Updates are few and don't say much. 3) some backers are so frustrated that they are now rooting for this game to fail, sadly. Me I just want the game to be released.  Any thoughts??                       Chadly. :) 8)

Hi all. Hey if anyone is interested i have a bunch old old sierra games. (including boxes, manuals and disks.) I am house cleaning and figured if anyone was interested I Will Give them to You.

                                                                                                                         Yes I could attempt to sell them on
                                                                                                                      ebay, but don't feel like it.

Quest for Infamy / Bt (Steve's) Kidney Failure
« on: October 17, 2018, 02:56:01 AM »
New Post here folk,

   Well in the last few days Steven Alexander aka BT has took a turned for the worst.   I could tell you ALL VERBATIM BUT THAT IS REDUNDANT. Steve is Dying of Kidney Failure. No cure, and he won't take his wife's kidney for backup. Now I am a nobody, but healthy I could give him one of mine, I just don't think he take it, being the guy he is. Which makes me mad. (I am healthy, have no kids, or wife, shit i can live lots with only one kidney~) Less beer which makes my mother happy??  Friends, please for the love of Christ, God, Allah, or whatever you believe, in help Steve and Jordan, @ www.gofundme.com/steves-kidney-journey. These are wonderful and great people. Please help!  Thank-You!

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Game Creation, or world building?
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:41:45 AM »
 
Hi all.

 I  as a unexperienced game creator, wonder at the process?  You guys have created games for years now.
i.E. ( SQ2 remake, KQ3 remake, QFI, and Order of the Thorne. All have been a success,
in my eyes if not a money/profit wise. You have all worked hard to create something unique an special. Will Roehm to Ruin to be released soon, (I hope) will this be the last hurrah for IQ? Fortress of fire??  It's bums me out that QFI and others didn't make you all any cash.  QFI is and will be the Spiritual continuation to Quest fo Glory....Only better and more snarky......Chadly

« on: July 15, 2018, 05:32:48 PM »
Hey all.

     The Coles, who designed the Quest for Glory series have a new game out called Hero U:Rogue to Redemption.  It is in my opionion succesor to Quest for Glory. It's fantastic. You can get it for 30 dollars from Steam or Gog.com.  If you like Role playing games/adventure give this one a try.  You won't be disappointed.

Hey guys, in the header i've indicated my point.  Sometimes we all fall from grace and act like teenagers. (like right now)  I myself enjoy a vigorous (ms) and lively debate.  I like all folks have come upon some hard times, persoanally and professionally. Now, nowhere near as the creators of this site (BT i am praying for you and yours, and im sadly not a very God Fearing man, alto i should be according to my Mom.)  I miss the comeraderie if you will of those who once debated here.  As a supporter of Infamous Quests, and the like i"m sad that few folks talk if you will here.  Has Social Media destroyed a great thing? I say yes.  Fuckbook and Twitter have there place, but man we used to have some great debates here.....ans elsewhere i Guess.... Let's get it started again.....Its getting hot in here....SO.......    Chadly

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Star Wars: What do think of the New Movies?
« on: May 29, 2018, 01:48:09 PM »
    HI all,


       So what's everyone's opinion of the New Star Wars Movies?  I Liked the Force Awakens.  I thought Rogue One was bad.  The Last Jedi was a major disappointment for me, as the way Rian Johnson treated Luke. Ok I will say it TLJ just plain Sucked!  I recently saw SOLO and thought it was meh, or ok.  It seems to me that the producers/Disney/Kathleen  Kennnedy are trying to make political/Social statements with these films. For instance, I watched an interview with Don Glover, who played Lando in Solo. He stated that Lando was a Pansexual. I actually had to look up the definition.  Weird is all I can say. 

      When i watched for Instance the Phantom Menace I was super excited after waiting 20 years for a new movie.  I liked it, but was a bit disappointed.  This also was the case with the Last Jedi.  I thought to myself this is going to as great AS Empire Strikes Back. It wasn't :-[ :P  I guess I set my expectations too High.  So for episode IX, the last Star Wars i will keep an open mind, but given that the director is J.J. Abrams I expect a remake of Return of the Jedi.           Whats your take?
