Well, mum and dad brought everything they owned in a container when we emigrated nearly 30 years ago, so there was a looot of stuff. And everything belonged to some dead relly! We've gotten rid of about a 1/3 and since we are downsizing to a smaller place, we're going to have to get rid of about another 1/3, but everything is packed now so that'll be after we move. Now to sell this one and find a new place!

Right now I'm replaying the Drawn trilogy. It's such a beautiful set of games, and I love the music.

It's been a long time since I've played the Drawn games - I thought they were the best "adventure-lite" games I've ever played.

Must have another look at the "Drawn" games, they were really good. A little rant here - anyone else fed up with "morphing" objects, collectibles, etc.? What's wrong with a straightforward HOG/puzzle game?

I'm just tired in general of the monotony of Casual Games. It's always the same thing with maybe a little twist here and there. It feels to good to play a good old adventure game like BOUT 2 or one of my RPGs. The Drawn games were such a breath of fresh air. I wish there were more of them.

I agree Drac, in general. But sometimes, when life is getting overwhelming, a casual game passes the time while I de-stress. Although... I usually just play Diablo II Lord of Destruction and hack & slash my stress away! ;)

Now and then, I'm with you, Jude. Sometimes a casual game is just the thing - I don't even mind one that is straight HO scenes. But I have a hard time with a steady diet of them.

BOUT 2 on the other hand is just rip-roaring fun!

I haven't played BOUT 2, but pinball can be rip-roaring fun. :D

I play Astro Bugz Revenge and Zuma when I want to let off steam.

I loved Astro Bugs Revenge, but was never able to get past a certain level!

I've made it through all levels and difficulties in the regular mode (like space invaders), but didn't make it very far in the alternative modes.

I too am a bit tired of casual games, but I'm sure to be back to them soon enough. But loving Bout 2 at the moment!

I'm playing and enjoying the second Cadenza game by Mad Head. I like the variety of hops and the story.
