  1. Tales From The Borderlands felt like Telltale getting back to funny adventures. It was great.

     

    Broken Age isn't really fair as only half came out this year. Game of Thrones felt a bit off to me, like Telltale were missing a few points (like decent character interactions) that makes GOT so compelling. Massive Chalice was great but needed a bit more zing.

  2. I've recently played through and enjoyed Alice: Madness Returns. It's a crazily insane platformer with more than a hint of Psychonauts about it. It was therefore with coincidence that I found this character hidden away in a secret area of Queensland:

    (Excuse the poor image quality as I have the 360 version)

     

    Now doesn't that character look extremely like Razputin? Even down to pulling this pose? I was still willing to write it off as a coincidence as I didn't think there was any connection between Alice, the Spicy Horse team, American McGee and Double Fine... but then at the very end, dug in the credits:

     

    "Special Thanks: Tim Schafer"

     

    Did Tim help them out with some parts of the game or something? Or did they just love Psychonauts so much they stuck a skeleton Raz in there and thanked Tim anyway? Either way, yay!

  3. Which one do you mean Dominus?

     

    Last Crusade, Fate of Atlantis, and Infernal Machine were all PC-focused and Emperor's Tomb and both Lego Indy games were released on PC... but I presume you mean Staff of Kings, the most recent non-Lego one?

     

    Unfortunately no, it's not. It was supposed to be released for all systems, but after the main version got cancelled only the Wii/PS2/PSP/DS versions got released. The main version was supposed to be for 360/PS3, but Force Unleashed got a PC release so I'm sure Indy would've too.

     

    Don't worry too much about missing out on it - all the versions released are pretty terrible. They were only supposed to be the rushed-out "side-versions" to go alongside the main current-gen one.

  4. It has to be EA. I don't know for sure, I just want it to be. No offence to LucasArts, I want their classics re-released, but I've played all of their classics to death. EA have dozens of superb classics that are itching for a digital release, that I'll gladly snap up.

     

    What game made monsters fear you? Potentially Dungeon Keeper.

  5. Just posted this on the main page (although I noticed it before I saw your post here), the whole album's excellent.

     

    The TMNT games are Japanese-made, incidentally. And isn't God of War Japanese made? It's Sony certainly.

     

    It is true that many Western games don't have a straight villain, and if they do he probably doesn't have a cool theme tune. Even in the LucasArts pantheon, apart from LeChuck, what single evildoer has a catchy theme? Darth Vader doesn't count.
