Re: "Keeping Time" Discussion

Never in band so here's my response: I like how this comic makes it appear like every department/grocery store has a godlike alter on which a dj masterfully spins the muzak that plays inconspicuously while you shop and that he has the ultimate power of turning that muzak on and off at will just to m...

Good Adventure Games

I think my favorite genre of pc games is adventure. Games like Myst, Scratches, Dreamfall, Indigo Prophecy are awesome. I've never played it, but I hear really good things about Grim Fandango. Anybody else have any good suggestions or contributions to this genre?
