    I'm up for most of them. I don't really care about the dancing games or a board game. I don't really like the fact that Persona 5:Definitive Edition is on there. I know it's too much to ask nowadays, but I'd much prefer that the Persona 5 coming out this year was the "definitive edition." I admit that I loved Persona 4 Golden, but that was at least a few years later and was really just enhancing a port.

    @SatelliteOfLove I hadn't really thought about it prior to reading this comment, but I think I have to agree with Zero Time Dilemma. I loved the previous two games, and while I still enjoyed much of this one it was an overall disappointment. I'm not sure if it was my fault (maybe I had become bored and wasn't paying close attention), or just poor storytelling, but I remember being completed surprised when I beat it. When I got the final ending I didn't even suspect that it was the 'real' ending and was expecting another story branch because as far as I can remember the ending was pretty 'meh.' When I realized that it was over it was a huge letdown. It didn't have near the same impact as the first two.

    I've been a big fan of your writing since I discovered you on 1up a few years before it was shut down. Like many others, you're the reason I started reading this site when it first started. Good luck on whatever you decide to do next. I'm glad you are doing what you want to do.

    @hectique The gamepad has 2 major functions (at least so far). It can display a real-time map as you are running around the city or dungeons, and is also used as a display for text messages sent between members of your team (which basically just gives hints on what to do next or small story-based updates)

    Very interesting. I'll keep my expectations in check, but I'm very curious.

    Even if it turns out well, I doubt they'll have all the games I would want. I'd give almost anything to play well-emulated, portable versions of Space Taxi, Archon, Jumpman, M.U.L.E, Impossible Mission, Boulder Dash, Beach-Head, Summer Games, California Games, Winter Games, Commando, Ghostbusters, and the several dozen of other games that we used to have.

    Nice review. I was a big fan of the game when it first came out and have been eagerly looking forward to replaying it again.

    I still remember how excited I was when I first read about the game in The Adventurer, which was basically an internal fan-zine published by LucasArts. I was already a fan of Maniac Mansion, so I could hardly wait to get my hands on DOTT, and it was everything I hoped for.

    This is kind of embarrassing, but I've always wondered if anyone had as hard a time as I did with one of the very first "puzzles" in the game. I can't remember what exactly it was (a key, a piece of paper..) but right after the time travel cut-scene there is something next to the generator you need to pick up in order to progress that I overlooked before leaving the room. It took me probably a couple hours of looking to finally find what I needed.Edited March 2016 by Unknown

    I just played the entire game in one sitting (yay for snow days!). I have seen the critical acclaim but have not really read any details, so I was completely taken by surprise (I was kind of expecting some horror elements). I loved every second of it. The story completely pulled me in and left me feeling both very happy and sad as it concluded. Great game. Was perfect for a snow day and with a couple bottles of wine.

    This is great news. I had no idea it was coming to PSN and just assumed I would never get to play it. I had overlooked it way back when it first came out, but after reading all the praise that Jeremy has given it over they years I've been wanting to try it out for awhile now.

    @Captain-Gonru I just beat the first chapter, and while I can't comment on the game as a whole, the ending of part 1 was the completion of its particular story. Of course there was something that happened at the very end that will pick up in the next chapter, but it occurred in the interconnecting storyline, so it didn't hurt the sense of closure that came with beating the chapter.Edited August 2015 by Unknown

    I started this game a couple nights ago and have mixed feelings about it. As a modern-day console adventure game, I like it well enough. As much as I enjoy the newer Telltale games, it's disappointing that they seem to have completely abandoned the more classic, LucasArts style of game that they started with. It's nice to see that this King's Quest reboot isn't a complete copy of TellTales's new style.

    On the other hand, I have to agree with brionfoulke91 in that, compared to the classics, it feels watered down and stale. I understand that modern day adventure games can't be like they once were. I can't just blame it on newer generations having no patience. Things have changed. As obsessed as I was with all of the classic Sierra games when I was a kid, I'm sure that if a similar game came out nowadays it wouldn't be long before I gave up on it. But I wish they found a happy medium. I haven't finished the chapter yet, but so far it just seems way too simple and straightforward.

    It's far from everything I hoped it would be, but I'm still having fun with it. And to be honest my expectations were a little too high. I first starting playing (graphic) adventure games at around 8 or 9. My very first one was King's Quest IV (followed quickly by Space Quest 2&3, Leisure Suit Larry 1&3, Maniac Mansion, and Zac McKraken). The game blew me away and the series has had a special place in my heart ever since.Edited August 2015 by Unknown
