Aw, man! great review, OD! The only question I have now is how does this compare to the previous two games? I'm bummed you didn't play them, because based on this one, if they are similar, I'd like to play the whole series. But if they are completely different, or not as involved with good design, I may not be as interested.

The first two are more like point and click adventure games with RPG battles. This one is a big departure.

From looking things up on Wiki (had to remember how to spell a few names and stuff), I got the impression of what Jerec said. The first two are Live Arcade games that are $10 or so, I think. Since I never got into the comic or other PA stuff, I ignored them and only bought this one because Zeboyd made it and, from what I read, they completely adjusted things to fit their style.

So it's kind of on this island where I loved the game, but still have no desire to play the first two due to the whole "different company" thing. Although, I do want to play the DeathSpank games at some time, but that's more because I've read some good reviews of them that make them look like the kind of thing I'd like. Point-n-click adventures have never been my thing, for whatever reason.

Ah, yeah. I was a big fan of point and click back in my childhood, when Lucas Arts was breaking new ground with them, and Longest Journey is still one of my favorite games ever (also the predecessor to one of the most disappointing sequels ever), but I can't get into them lately. It's like playing a book, and that just feels all wrong to me. And in this case it would be like playing a webcomic.
