09/13/06 Edit - In an effort to make as many people as happy as possible without resorting to blowjobs, I've gone through and added italicized text captions for all of the animations for all of the old updates. I had some complaints that some people "wanted" to read the thread, but couldn't because they hated trying to read my animated conversations.

So no more excuses to miss out on the hillarity. Enjoy it... Whiners.

.

Inspired by the kick-rear end Let's play Quest for Glory thread, I bring unto you...










Vanity, thy name is Son of Bug Jug.




I'm not cleaning that up.




After only a few steps he slumps to the floor.

Give that man an Emmy!




Cleaning up space puke for a living tends to make you hate life.




Title : Astral Body
Searching...
Title Found... Retrieving.


My Mom always told me to do whatever strange old men tell me to - might as well type that into the computer.


In the future, ladders are a lost technology.


Open the pod bay doors, Hal.


They let anybody at all open and close the bay doors, but you need a keycard to take this elevator.


You turn the dial to the right. The light begins to glow.

Space schwag! This stuff's going on Ebay. But for now, we'll settle for turning on the Universal translator.


A baffling number of the initial "puzzles" can be solved with "look panel" and "push button".


close door
wear seatbelt
push power button
push autonav
pull throttle


Flyin' ain't easy but it's necessary.




Phew! Flying away from the danger, now I can relax.


drat IT!

I hope you're aiming for a perfect score. I don't think I ever managed to get 202/202 in Space Quest, and I'd be interested to find out what optional actions I skipped.

The unique deaths (at least the ones that I'm aware of) will certainly be included.

But don't get too excited, compared to QFG1 they are few and far between. For the most part you just get a generic, "Well you sure did suck" message.

Sometimes I get lost.

Not to disturb your nice thread, but you could maybe use the SpaceQuest 1 VGA version, unless there is something I'm overlooking here - besides added nostalgia. (Yes I only played the EGA one, too.)


Added screenshot for clarification.

I never liked the point-n-click Sierra games. Spending hours trying to figure out the EXACT phrase that they're looking for is half the fun.

Wow, 160x200 pixel EGA graphics! I think the first Space Quest I ever played was 2, I think my best friend and I made our first contact with complex sentences in the English language with that game, it was way more fun than English class.

the animated gif would be bigger than the original game.
sq 3 was the best of the type adventures anyway, and 4 was probably the best of the series

I can get HBO on that screen, right?... Right?




Sounds nice.


What's the worst that could happen?








The take-away for this Let's Play thread is that if you're ever in a crash, make sure to grab some broken glass.


This is the point where the developers stopped worrying about making the game fun, and started worrying about making the game long.


OMFG QUICKSAND!!!!!!

I only ever really got into Space Quest 6, which I liked tons. It was the first adventure game I played, really. After that I played QFG 3. I played SQ 5 years later and enjoyed it somewhat. I'll be checking back with you when you get to 4, I can't stand EGA pooperdudes graphics.

Alright, let's make some progress - Forward MARCH!


You've been snatched from existence by a tentacled beast lurking beneath the grate. You feel the painful sting of digestive fluids.

Oh Anime - is there no childhood memory you can't pervert?


Okay, we can survive some light tickling.


The door opens when we put the rock on the geyser. High Security meets Rube Goldberg.




You lean over to drink from the tempting pool of liquid. As your lips touch the liquid you feel a pain that could be likened to kissing a lit rocket nozzle. Now you know what they say by "Don't drink the water."
That's right. You have no head. That darn pool must be filled with acid. You obviously can't go on living that way.


It's still better than Diet Pepsi.

At least beams of light can't hurt me.

You are now lying on the floor in many pieces. Guess those beams meant business, Son of Bug Jug.


You quite cleverly turn the beam upon itself, frying it to inoperability.


As soon as you enter the room, you find yourself surrounded by darkness. Suddenly you become aware of the fact that you cannot move or speak. A strange, unknown force has taken over.
A massive holographic image appears before you. You sense that you are the only life form in the area.











No problemo!




Does the Orat count as an organic life form?






Now the long trek back to the cave in the desert heat.


Time to whip out the survival kit.




That's better than Diet Pepsi too.












Once more unto the breach.

Man, old-school SQ1 really shafts you in that regard. The prettified version, besides having totally redone graphics, made the deaths so much better. The acid pool's is particularly awesome, as the designers pop in and openly mock you for the obvious suicide.

EDIT: With 'Instant Replay' and everything. Also: 'Taste' and 'Smell'.

EGA > VGA for remakes.

I swear SQ1 is the most brutual game to introduce someone to text-based games ever. I think I cried after being killed 10000 times trying to just leave the loving ship.

Having never played a * Quest game in my life, ever, I really want to know what taste and smell do with the acid pool now.

I didn't think I'd like this thread when I clicked it but it's strangely addicting...I'm looking forward to more updates (and deaths) too.

SQ4 came out around the time I got my first real computer and I loved that and 5. I borrowed the first 3 from a friend and couldn't get into them, especially this one. It's just not that funny. Glad you're playing through it for me.

SQ6 was pretty assy compared to SQ4 and 5. The one I bought also had a bug that made the game unbeatable.
