I only tried it once, and haven't played since Saturday. That's what I was planning on doing, but was hoping I could maybe manage it running and gunning. We'll see. They've done a good job making you feel secure through sections, and suddenly having all hell break loose without any warning.

I'm really enjoying The Walking Dead (the Telltale one). Amazing immersion and good story. It's taking me back to the point and click games I used to play in the 1990s. There's not much playing to be done, if you want action and shooting, but it's very well done.

I got the collection at Christmas, but still haven't played it. Hopefully will start it after finishing Last of Us. Looking forward to it, it's supposed to be great.


Rockstar is supposed to be releasing a video of actual gameplay from GTA 5 tomorrow. Hopefully it's one of those featurette things like they released every few weeks leading up to Red Dead Redemption.

Hopefully it somehow features me flying a plane into a blimp piloted by a certain office of the law from Texas.

And me running away from terrifying circumstances near a cabin, leaving my friends to die.

That's still such a classic moment, cracks me up every time I think about it. I was so stunned at the time, that's what makes it even better.

Should be a good companion to Last of Us (which I want to play soon). It's much more faithful to the graphic novel than the TV series, I think, and I like that they used comic book-inspired graphics.

I really miss point and click games, by the way. I don't think I've ever had as much fun as when I played Day of the Tentacle, all the Monkey Islands, the Gabriel Knight series... so much fun.

I've shied away from the Walking Dead games because I was worried they were too much like quick time events I just moved forward with button clicks. Do they really compare with the Maniac Mansion games as far as gameplay goes?
I really wish they'd bring back Maniac Mansion

It doesn't really compare, unfortunately. Most of the game is about dialogue and quick decisions. But part of it is about point and click "puzzles" - finding the right object, etc - but they are pretty basic and not something like Maniac Mansion. It's as close to point and click as new games go, which is not to say much.

Character development is pretty good, though.
