    But Olivia Munn is a dumb brunette who used her body to advance in her career. She knows nothing of video games, it's all a charade, she has an annoying voice, and to be honest, not that pretty. One of the reasons why G4 sucks now is because of her. I'm glad she's off that network, she shouldn't even be on TV, she's not that funny either.

    Olivia Munn = Hack/Fake.

    I can't help but to find her attractive with an incredible body. I have to admit, most of the allure is the body. She is not hard to look at though.

    On topic: So this game is very hit or miss? If so, I probably won't enjoy it, as those types of games are always very "miss" with me.

    @Nathan Drake: Thanks! But how?

    @Maz7006: How comes it doesn't work for you? Machine too slow or....missing the LaserDisc...?

    I just read that SpaceAce & Dragon's Lair II are coming along for DS, too?! SpaceAce should have been released on 12/31/10...

    I'm excited.

    It's less of a game and more one long cheat code you have to discover by trial and error, while watching a cartoon.

    I've beaten E.T. on the Atari 2600 multiple times, as a kid and as an adult. I've never found it to be "horrible."

    Seriously, what did/does everyone expect? It was the 2600, ffs.

    It's basically like a DVD menu. You watch a little bit of a cartoon until it gets to the bit where you need to do an action and you guess what to press (up, down, left, right, fire) based on what happens. If you press the right button you choose the scene which shows the next bit of the story, pick the wrong one and you watch the death scene. Basically it's stupidly difficult while you're going through the trial and error of working out the moves and stupidly easy once you've learned the sequence or use a guide, which is why the arcade game had a rather short active lifespan.

    Please, for the love of all that's holy, can all quotes of my modified post include what i originally wrote....it's embarrassing as much as anything to have an edited comment attributed to me.

    For those of you who do not already know what Dragon's Lair is all about:




    Review of DSi version, but it looks identical to this release.



    I rem reading around the net that the full-on DS version was to have a "book mode" where the video was spread across both screens. I see no such feature in this release though. From what I saw of the second video above, it's just the DSi version put on cart.

    ...just to add to this, there are DVD games out there that plays exactly like this, i.e., like a Visual Novel of sorts. the narrative may be told through text, animation, pictures or live action, but they all get to a point where you'll get a chance to interact with the story and influence how the story unfolds.


    mostly are japanese though. i think i saw them off of j-list or something like that.


    now as for Dragon's Lair, i guess i could say i'm old enough to be familiar with it, but i've never really played it yet, so this would be the perfect time for me to try this. i hope this feels as fulfilling as the Broken Sword port. [​IMG]

    as u may see in the videos posted by rayder (i saw the second one), its more looking at a movie than playing a game esp since it has a disney theme
    NOTE: this line on wikipedia caught my attention
    Code:
    It featured animation created by Ex-Disney animator Don Bluth
    No wonder we have such a boxart... makes u feel tht the aim of the game is to get the girl, how desperate

    It's essentially one of the forefathers of Quick Time Events. This entire game is one big Quick Time Event.

    I only liked this game because I love Don Bluth animation and will watch anything he is involved in, but I hate QTE. It relies on reaction and memory which is a fair challenge, but can be pretty demotivating when you get far and they up the reaction time.

    I just want to complete this once for watch mode.

    Go in the options and turn on the move guide. You won't really get to see the game play that way since you'll be watching for the moves, but you can follow the prompts and beat the game to unlock "Watch Mode". Then you can watch the whole thing all the way through......except for the death animations.

    The PC version WILL show the death animations in "watch mode" if you set it to.
