I can't decide whether to wait or jump on it!

There is a great long thread about it on GB which I have not yet had time to read through - Have you had a look at it first, Drac?

Edit: OMG - I have now read all the postings at GB and I can just feel the excitement coming at me through my monitor from the people who have already "experienced" this game. It is a humongous 1.2 GB and the minimum specs are so high that obviously some people are having problems on older PCs, but it does sound like a wonderful wonderful game.

Could this be the moment when I buy my first CE, Stella??

Hey, that's a thought......... Where is Stella these days?

I am waiting with fingers and toes crossed to see if the new Ravenhurst will be made for Macs. I'm not getting my hope up until then, but I loved the previous games.

I went straight off to find out more. I am getting it but I am a bit worried about the warnings. I'm not too squeamish but I don't like horror movies - maybe I am faint hearted?

I've just finished Escape from Ravenhearst. Some of the content is yucky Skeeter but as for scarey - it's so OTT it's funny! but the game is great! I've just tried the demo for Resurrection New Mexico - I found that scarier & lots of bargains to be had on BF today so look soon! :D

I am playing the new Ravenhearst. It's long (a good thing) and weird (also a good thing) and challenging in comparison to most of these games. There is a twist on the usual find-it scenes which I'm not sure I like any better--they still are not fun, but at least there are not very many of them.

I have a newish boffo gaming laptop, and I had to update my video card drivers to get the game to work, but now it plays like a dream. You should definitely try the demo first to see if it'll run on your computer.

I'm having a blast with it overall. I have gotten my money's worth out of it, timewise, even at the CE price.

They were hard in comparison to most of the BFG offerings but not hard in comparison to regular adventure games. I never had to look at the walkthrough for the puzzles, just for where to find some items when I got sick of tromping all over the place. Some of the puzzles were unique, which is always nice, and I don't remember doing any stupid puzzles, like putting together torn-up papers, that are in so many other games.

I have since learned that you really don't get much in the way of extras with the collector's edition. Mostly more find-its, blech. It's probably worth waiting for the regular edition.

That's exactly what I am going to do - Wait for the SE, Jen, but so glad that you enjoyed it! :cheers:

Because of those two BFG sales last weekend, I filled up 4 punch cards for November!! :roll: :roll:

I'm playing Ravenhearst, love it, and agree with Jen about the game being a little tougher than the usual Big Fish games. The maternity ward puzzles really worked my little brain over! :queen:
