I think we can guess what the interface will be.  They have gone as far as to saying it isn't a point and click game, and then they backtracked a little from there.  The game is being made for consoles.  That much is easy to tell.  I am guessing because of the controller, you will  move easily with analog stick (translated to a keyboard/mouse could be telltale style or traditional keyboard movement) and then each button will dictate some kind of action.  I am guessing there will be one primary action but no way to know for sure.  I think it will feel a lot like grim fandango.  The issue becomes when they translate the console controls to keyboards, they don't tend to work as well.  The new grim fandango suffered quite a bit when they added the point and click interface as you missed quite a bit of things due to the game mechanics having been designed for something else.  The subtle head turns in grim fandango worked extremely well with tank controls but were completely lost in point and click which led to many puzzles being difficult to solve (burning the beavers, moving the ashtray, to name a couple).  I experienced this first hand as I never played the original version of the game.  I had to consult a walkthrough even though I knew the solution, and in the case of the beavers, I still had difficulty completing the puzzle even after seeing it done on a youtube video.  Long story short, I will buy it for my xbox as I would rather play it as it was designed to be played.

Quest for Infamy / Re: Character disscusion QFI 1.

The only bad review I read about the narrator was where the reviewer complained he sounded forced and trying too hard to be English when he said bollocks. This of course made me laugh because that is pretty much Jame's natural voice.

Perhaps the reviewer was commenting more on the use of the word and not his voice.  As if the writing was trying to sound too English.  But yes, James was awesome as the narrator, and all his other work on the game as well.

What he does in that situation is based on your infamy prior to that interaction.  You then need to use that infamy to your advantage, not mess it up by killing the man.  He has no reason to help you at that point

The solution he gives you is dependent on your infamy points not what you do to him.

Infamy points impact how some NPCs react to you.  It may not be best to kill the man, but doing so would make you more infamous...etc.

NOTHING.  Sleep is wonderful and those nights are the worst.  Sorry about the lack of sleep Steve.  Feel better buddy.

To be honest, I don't like the look of that at all.  I just went back and played the original with my son.  There is little need for a remake.  If anything, to remake it as Point and click while keeping the original art (like was done with The Black Cauldron) would be cool.

Is there a use for roehm.dat?

It gets created to import your character and stats into a possible sequel if we are able to make one.  :)

There are a couple other places to get extra blys that I don't think anyone has found
  Little Easter eggs with some bonus coins.

My most recent are grim fandango, granted it was for the point and click interface that I bought it.  The other most recent was kq8 because I didn't want to screw around with getting it to work in my machine

I agree with this in theory, and that's a lovely sentiment

You did notice I said earlier that this is just an ideal and that I agree it can't happen.  You did read my posts right, or did you just stop when you read that I identify as a republican?

I find it impossible to separate your words from the party you associate yourself with

That's too bad.  You tend to just lump all republicans into a box instead of actually listening to what an individual says.  I guess you are choosing to be part of the problem.

How can you say that with a straight face and then identify as a Republican in this country?

I explained how and why I identify as a republican earlier.  Perhaps you should have actually read my entire post.

Like I said before, the real issue I have with US politics is the fact that there exist two extremes and no middle ground.  To continue to lump all liberals or conservatives into a single category only makes this issue more prominent.  I don't believe we will ever make any real headway to becoming a unified nation because of it.  I honestly have taken less and less interest in politics and elections as a result.  But Lamb, my issue with you (and I shouldn't have an issue because you are like this everywhere) is that you take your opinion and don't listen to anything anyone else says.  You are always right and you will continue to poke until people just get pissed off.  And you then say that they are the problem.  Not a good look my friend.

Lamb, you once again miss the point entirely.  I am more interested in finding ways to unify the country as opposed to dividing it.  I am all about finding middle ground that everyone can be happy with.  There are times for standing your ground and waiting for the other side, but for the most part, middle ground does exist.  We would be much better off trying to find that middle ground than trying to force an extreme on half the people that do not support it.

I agree that there are some real idiots in the republican party.  But it goes both ways.  That's all I am saying.

The biggest problem that I have with the current US government is that with all the redistricting, it is impossible for a middle of the road candidate to win their own primary.  If you aren't extreme to one side or the other, you wont win a primary.  Then in the general elections, there are no candidates that could actually make any bipartisan efforts.  We are left with 2 extremes that say that passing bills that are mostly split down party lines as bipartisan.  To me, a bipartisan effort would be one where e found the middle ground that no one is 100% happy with, but everyone can live with it, and it could be supported by all.  But the way things are now, that will never happen because those who would have that approach cannot win a primary let alone be elected.

Nope.  Not at all.

but it certainly seems to be in the case of the 200 or so people to whom I am connected via Facebook.  ;)

That's one of your problems right there.  Anyone who uses social media as a political forum...I'll leave it at that.  :)

I just hate getting lumped into a group when it comes to politics.  I am a registered republican, but see my self more as a fiscal conservative and social liberal.  At the end of the day, the fiscal side wins.

I hear a lot of the "greatest country on earth" shit from some of my more under-informed conservative relatives, and it makes my head spin.  Realism, that's all I ask from people.

Don't make this into a conservative thing.  It may be that more conservatives are vocal, but there are liberals in the same camp.  It is like you said, an "under-informed" thing, but not a conservative one.
