I love the movie as well. Incredible movie.

Did you know the guy who played Vizzini, Wallace Shawn? In the new King's Quest, he's doing the voice of "Manny", the intelligent knight.

Each installment is $10. What what I've heard they're quite long chapters so that's a good price point.

all i know is i preordered that sucker on steam, but ive seen no retail boxes
anyone know about those?

if they are even making retail or went the telltale route of only digi.
idk love a real box, vs just steam or such,
aww what to pick. gog .. steam.. hmm
retail. grrs want hard copies of my stuff.

cant wait though looks nicer and nicer as i look at it.
still looks somewhat platformish on the trailers though but whoop looks awesome,
does it use the consequence subs? like most telltale games or life is strange dreamfall chapters kinda thing that carry over? this leads to loads of extra plays as you might get diff endings etc.

I dunno if they're going to do a box; they're not profitable at all for companies, and a lot of hassle!  We only do 'em cause we find them cool ourselves!  The shareholders of Activision are not amused!!

hehe bt

well I saw some pics of boxed console versions but wasn't sure if it was just a demo or something

as for pc well i know thats pure digi
but as for this game i can see if it does well a box coming out or later a ce issue with behind scenes stuff like gog would have

hmm to gog or to steam this sucker mmm

and as much as I understand the box's = non profit, its not always the case
take witcher 3 CE for example
I got my CE box and CE guide 179.99 + 39.99

well worth it, its huge, soo that made bank
the ps4 ver got a cloth map and GWENT cards (which upset me) as they sell for 100$ per deck and 20-40$ for the cloth map.
ughh

I wanna play real gwent with some real mead   oi!

so yea sometimes boxes make bank, sometimes they kill companies
i dont wanna even mention the batman on pc debacle ugh
lucky i didnt preoder that box

http://www.pcgamer.com/broken-bat-finding-the-good-and-bad-in-the-arkham-knight-debacle/

originally wb/rocksteady was supposed to do a batmobile edition, but it flopped hard much like the pc version being pulled off shelves and off steam!
ooops

lol

refunds galore there  gulp

also borderlands  another great series for boxes selling
pre sequel sucked but had a really rare claptrap box for xbox one, that you could control with your phone ! huge
bl2 had chests etc

assassins creeds always do boxes CE x10 per game  3 per region more in uk usually 
ac rev has 11 versions alone!

sooo sometimes they boxes make baaaank
most times they dont,

in the case of this kq its a safe bet to test the waters first Id suppose, esp as acti.. shudder vision.
but im soo sold on this game, when i was NOT before cheers!

here is hoping they do make swag at least
shirts pins stickas would be nice seeing a sierra logo again (miss my old sierra stickers)

bombastic post over n out
end of line-

lol

If they do boxes I would think it would be the same way TT do boxes, the whole series boxed up and sold at retail.

I don't really follow the TT games so I really have no idea if they'd stopped making boxes or not. I do see them in a local retailer every so often - I couldn't tell you how recent the games are or not.

yea I used to also be one to pack up and get the merch n swag ready to ship
it was... mind numbing
seriously

im sure you  cats know
it was about.. right around back to the future was the last retail box and sold with diff plates for the diff car eras
after that they stopped selling anything, when they used to sell sooo much, loads n loads

not just the boxes
but yea most of the older titles have boxes , and some of the newer ones for console do, but NOT pc, and again not avail via TTG site (its TTG not TT) but its ok as long as i know what ya mean  and I do:)

and yea we have had the convo of ttg's before
but its interesting seeing how with the new interviews from odd gentlemen, HOW OFTEN they praise telltale and give credit for creating that choice system back in jurassic park era, which spawned well every pick this and this will effect you in a later episode,
even dreamfall followed suit, and seems KQ will too, to some lvl, but yet be standalone eps + some choices

again another great game which i mentioned that praised ttg's for making this system work is Life is strange oddly a square enix game
:)

replubique etc
all great fargin games too
(no not the ttgs) the others lol
life is strange is friggen  insanely awesome.

So, I'm playing The new King's Quest.

So far, it's a QTE extravaganza coupled with a lot of cut-scenes.  Seriously, it's like watching a cartoon more than a game.  Obviously aimed at a different demo than most adventure gamers.  Well, old-school adventure gamers, not these new school adventure gamers who think Tell Tale Games are the pinnacle of AGs!

It's funny, had this game not had the King's Quest Brand on it, I'd think it was a charming game for kids - but as a King's Quest, it's so so.  Picks up after the intro at the cave - opens up to the town and tourney.  I'll be interested to see what others think - so far, I don't think it's great but I also know it's not FOR me.  So, outside of that, I can say it's a decent game.

I'll happily buy it when it goes on a serious sale.  I refuse to pay full price for the dumbing down of adventure games on principle.  Glad people are enjoying it though.  Some of the professional reviews I've read have acknowledged the easiness of the game, but others, like the Polygon review, are utter facepalms lamenting the lack of fast travel and other modern "conveniences."  Fuck that noise.  Overall, I'm pleased that it seems to be a step in the right direction away from Telltale style, but it also seems to be very Telltale influenced in other ways, so...bleh.
