Quest for Infamy / Re: DLC/FUTURE UPDATES

This game is already pretty massive on it's own. It's the biggest adventure game I've played in a long time. I think it might even be bigger than any of the QFG games

I have failed at being infamous already; by not calling in to work sick today.

Enjoy it folks, and I will catch up in 8 hours.

Again, thank you to the IQ team for your efforts, I am so proud of you all, just to have watched this grow from a distance has been a form of entertainment in its own right.

I want to echo this sentiment. I am so immensely proud of you guys and can't wait to start playing. Thanks so much, especially to BT and Klytos for over 10 years of dedication :o ! I'm sure it was worth the wait

I had no idea how realized Hero 6 ever became. Frequenting AGDI in wait for QFG2 the impression I got was that Hero 6 was disaster after disaster and never really had a chance. Seeing this much material for it though is just wow.

I'll just drift follow around documenting the parties and accidents.

I guess I'm just a fan. I have a real hard time with net handles. I go by Calik on my steam account and other media because that's what my WoW character was called but I haven't played in years. Every few months I go through a crisis of self as to what I should use for my online identity and as such I've been Quest For Glory Fan for almost 10 years.

Just saw Lamb's sketch video. Love that he pops up that picture from Raiders for reference about midway through.

I prefer the first links art style to the 3d remake attempt. I'd love to play the series through with cohesive remakes. The other one just doesn't seem to fit. Imagine if AGDI made QFG2 in the style of QFG5 instead of VGA like they did. Playing through the series would be so weird.

I've been reading A Game of Thrones and it's a great little companion piece to the show. the advice I seem to get from most readers is to watch and then read it. The show is extremely close to the books, though getting further all the time. You can watch the show and absorb it at face value and when you read it you get into the minds of all the characters and the motivations become so much more clear. They also have room to delve into their enormous backstories in a way that the show doesn't really allow for.

Other than that though I've recently gotten into novels that are very graphic. No not like American Psycho but literally graphic novels. There's so much cool stuff going on over at Marvel these days it's a new age. I sat down and read the entirety of Ultimate Spider-man (Still going) and it's so cool how all 4 of the Spider-man movies have borrowed or referenced from it. It also ties in nicely to the Ultimate X-men books.

If costumes and nobles aren't your bag I highly reccomend Brian K. Vaughn's Y: The Last Man. it's a 60 issue series about a plague that kills every male of every species on earth simultaneously except one man and his pet monkey. It can get a bit "Lost" at times with it's multiple mysteries but it's hugely evocative and funny and just plain fun to read.

Bt, if you like Dick in the eyes, as in reading the works of Phillip K. Dick, you should pick up a copy of "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" It's one of the best done comics I've ever seen. It has the entire text of the novel in it as well and in my opinion is better than Blade Runner.

I found dreamfall to be wordier than GK but that's just me. I recently tried playing Sam and Max hit the road. Is it just me or was that game particularly difficult?

Hey there Quest For GLory Fan (or anyone who knows)!  May I ask, how did you get ahold of the old Sam & Max game?  If it's not on GoG then I'm pretty much crap outta luck getting those really old games to work on my computer (even with SCUMM or DosBox, etc...)  But I was just curious if there was a way (or place) to play or download it that I wasn't thinking of...

Sam & Max is one of the FEW old classic adventure games that I never got around to playing and I'd LOVE to be able to try it out!


I had a copy of the Lucas Arts Archives for most of my old games but i prefer to do a lot of my pointing and my clicking on the mac these days. I found a really cool way to do it too. KLYTOS IS GREAT Anyways if one were to type in BUY QUEST FOR INFAMY TWICE, they'd see some scoundrel has actually wine wrapped a TON (and I mean atleast 200) 90s games of all genres from Day of the Tentacle to Simcity2000 to work on OSX. There's more LA than Sierra in there which is great because GoG is mostly sierra and not so much Lucas Arts.

I actually click the banner whenever I buy anything from GoG. Does it matter if I click this one or the one on IA?

There's also a modding guide that puts Baldur's Gate 1 into 2 and makes it one massive game using the engine of the second one. It is a very complex system but the more you play with it the easier it seems to get. It's more of a tactical battler than anything I've played.

edit: here, dug it up.
