Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition

3 posts in this topic

 

I loved this game when I was a teenager. Kings Quest, Hero's Quest, Space Quest, the old Leisure Suit Larry games.. Sierra made some great adventure games back in the day. This remake made by the original creator looks great. :D I don't think I'll be pre-ordering it myself tho. I still have the classic original somewhere that is unplayable on modern computers, but I'll definitely pick this up on a steam sale. I even have the novelization of this game in softback.

I remember playing a copy of Hero's Quest that was before it was renamed Quest For Glory. I never got far into the game because I didn't know what to do.

 

I usually went with Thief hoping I'd learn the other 2 classes along the way. At best I'd steal from houses, learn a little magic, & see which cat puns I'd be able to get away with, with the innkeeper's wife.

 

Then later I'd get myself killed by going into the cave or purposely getting stabbed in the back. That & I think I remember sleeping outside or falling asleep outside was a way to get robbed.

 

I was hoping when the Sierra logo was news a month or so ago there'd be news for a new Quest For Glory. Someone outside of Bethesda, & various MMOs ought to know the importance of Actual Beast Races.

 

Damn Kemonomimi / Sexy Cosplay /  Generic Almost Human Races.... My buzz kill to almost every other Fantasy Game....

Sorry I have never played Gabriel Knight before. But it does look like an interesting Horror Game.

Hero's quest / quest for glory were great. I used to watch my brother play those games for hours. He went to sleep out in the woods and got robbed and / or attacked quite a few times. I think he upgraded his awareness or something so he could wake up and defend himself. If I remember right he used to sleep right next to a goblin base so he could farm goblins by waking up and murdering them. After 13 or so corpses were on the screen they stopped showing up. XD

Gabriel knight was a good series but it didn't take off as week as the other Sierra games. I blame Gabriel knight 2 for being a mostly fmv based game. It was enjoyable at the time but the old sherlock homes fmv games blew it away.

      Nvidia is launching an online game streaming service called GeForce NOW.
      I'm going to quote myself here from another topic:
      With Playstation having it's own streaming service and now Nvidia making it's own service, having to own physical consoles and PCs specifically for gaming might come to an end within our lifetimes.
      The downside to the Nvidia service is the cost. I've been seeing the numbers "$25 per 20 hours of gaming" floating around alot. If so, thats a hell of an expense for now.

      I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before. Does anyone know if this is a good price for all these games considering I'd have to use Uplay (my pc can play them fine)? Or would I be better off picking these up on console during a PSN sale?

      Am I the only one suffering from steam sale fatigue? Maybe its just me but ever since they changed the store to the design it is now nothing in the store appeals to me anymore. Its probably because of the massive influx of every game from every independent developer. Theres so many games on there that I never look at what new games came out anymore because in any given week 40+ new games were released and 250+ games are listed in their weekly sales. I stopped looking and only pay attention to humble bundle sales now. Even with the steam sale going on now I don't see any huge sale thats leaping out at me to take my money anymore. Sure I still have a backlog of games but there seems to be less and less new AAA or indie games that I'm interested in for PC. Unless its a game I want for console I hardly look at the steam store anymore even though I use steam on a daily basis.

      If you haven't played season 1 or 2, the trailer seems to be spoiler free and doesn't reference any of those events. WTF.. Jesus is in this!?
