By PC 98 are you referring to the original release of Kyrandia, the talkie version (i have both the talkie and the non talkie disks) or something else? i was just curious as the Kyrandia series is one of my all time favorites and I was just playing the start of Kyrandia I last night.

It ...

Sam and Max are part of a special niche genre and do just fine however Telltale does them in my humble opinion. I always enjoy them..and other games in a similar vein. The episode approach is necessary for the bottom line of development for some even larger companies, the 13 episodes to continue The...

I am sorry to say that this game is in the junk can with The Abbey, both terrible examples of oversimlifed animation and terrible voice acting. Murder by bad game design. Waste of time and effort.
