apple-tab out of it, move the mouse where you want, apple-tab back into
Game kinda sucks with a trackpad :rofl
Mon May 16 2011 16:49:46 EDT from Ford II @ UncensoredI'm inept with the mouse that's exactly the kind of game I will never be good at. too much shaking.
I used to be okay with a mouse, but I can't do it anymore.
I've been finding them and other low-budget indie games to be extremely addicting.

A better review than mine: http://playthisthing.com/king-shreds-and-patches
As long as it isn't one of these paper versions of interactive novel, I'd call it video game. I once tried to play one, since I wanted something non-realime and non-cpu hogging for gaming on the train. I tried http://www.lacunastory.com/ for a while, but although it is nice, it somehow reminded me of unfinished business on Monkey Island 2, so I switched to scummvm (which seems to be able to play the Myst/Riven stuff now, too.)
Atm, I am addicted to SDLHana, a foss version of the Hanafuda variant Koi-koi. Does anyone know of any good windows or webbased versions?
I think a lot of people pooh-pooh cheatbooks because it's not noble or something like that, but jeez, get off your high fucking horse, that's like saying "You're not enjoying the entertainment the way you're supposed to." It's fucking entertainment, If you enjoy a book by drawing in it with crayon, then you've gotten something out of it.
Anyway, it just seems to me that instead of it being a game, it's a novel way to read or watch a story.
Agreed, I rather look into a cheatbook than being stuck for month because the programmer chose to hide something important in a 3 pixel space where noone would expect it. The enterntainment value is in the playing, not in the frustration. Hell, I tried almost everything my english dictionary came up with, but Leisure Suite Larry would only remove his cloths on the command "undress".
Last cheat book I bought was MadWorld's guide to Ultimate Violence and it is a lovely made hardcover with really valuable hints. You can beat the game without it, but you'll miss some fun.
I wanted to try King of Shreds and Patches, but my gargoyle version (2010093) is in some perpetual loop after it tells me the key setup and I am asked to press space to continue. After that, it starts over again... :(
And might be a proper cooking game for the Wii, slashing around with the wiimote
I was surprised to find a DOS game from around 1989 that had been ported over to linux. (and Windows) I don't know if any of you remember Blockout by California Dreams, a 3D Tetris like game. I believe it is available in Fedora, I know it is in the debian/ubuntu repositories.
Or you can get it online http://www.blockout.net/
coolio! had been playing that over and over.
There are lots of retro games where at least the engine is ported to support recent version of M$ operating systems or linux:
Ranotherworld -> Another World, Reminiscence -> Flashback (kind of a sequel to Another World), free clients for Dune 2 and Syndicate, Privateer Gemini Gold Openc2e for the Creatures series (although not yet fully functional). For most of them you need the original game files.
Then there are genuine gems like Cultivation (http://cultivation.sourceforge.net/), a really neat but small game.
PS: I got King of Shredded Potatoes running, the trick is to press Space directly on the first screen, where you can also scroll down by pressing arrow keys... I found Gargoyle to be a nice looking IF interpreter.
