Bought "The Longest Journey" And Dreamfall. It's been a while since I played an adventure like game and I am enjoying TLJ.

Yeah it was like 7.2gb but well worth it. I am a little bit into TLJ and I am really liking the game, but I wish there was a way to make more than 640x480. I edited the prefs file to make it windowed so it would look better but with a 1920x1200 screen it's a pretty small window.

If you want Darwinia cheaper, get the Introversion Anthology which includes it.

I enjoyed the game a lot as well. It was probably one of the few games since Monkey Island to follow that same style of gameplay/adventure that i loved ages ago, and i still loved it. Great story too. Its a good long and enjoyable game.

Dreamfall on the other hand..was a bit of a disappointment. The story is good as always, but i really didn't see the point in adding a combat feature to it. It is pointless, and the whole 3rd person view was not bad..but..again..why change something that is/was a great gameplay system. All they needed to do was add some graphics improvement to the game, a story and you got your self a great game ><...

Just spent 2 1\2 hours playing Psychonauts. This game is a lot of fun!

The graphics are pretty chunky for 2005 due to it being an original XBox game, but it has a nice feel to it, it supports OpenAL, it runs good, the controls work well, the characters are great and the gameplay feels pretty fresh to me (I've never been a fan of platformers so I've only played a few in the past 10 years). There is just so much to find and explore.

Glad I picked it up!
