[Insert the usual Tuesday blurb here] Just joking. I’ve got several games piling up on my computer desk (The Last Story, UFC Undisputed 3, Tekken 3D: Prime Edition, Twisted Metal, Street Fighter X Tekken), I haven’t touched any of them: I’ve been playing 1995 point-and-click adventure Full Throttle.
I’ve always wanted to buy the game but was never able to find a copy until I found one on an online store’s Marketplace for the huge price of – get this – $5. It actually cost more to courier it to me!. I’m loving it, so far: it’s humour is infectious and the puzzles actually involve you having to use a little common sense rather than be signposted right in front of you.
Today, I talked about it with Glenn “Wammo” Williams on Kiwi FM.
Oh, and it’s Mass Effect week this week. The game is released in New Zealand on Friday. I thought I might have a review copy by now but I don’t so we’ll see how things go. I’ll just be avoiding the internet until I get it for, oh, I don’t know, the next week so I don’t see reviews that will spoil it for me!
