    My dh got me the REbel EAO XTI 2 Christmas’ ago and I absolutely love it!! I was shooting with the same olympus 35 mm since 1985 and didn’t think I would ever go digital. this camera did it for me!

    I’ve played the revamped KQI and KQII, and I didn’t really like them as much. I know the story is the same, but I think part of the charm (and challenge of the game) was trying to figure out exactly which way to phrase “look at the book” to make Graham actually look at the book. Gander? Glance? Open? Novel? Novella? Paperback?
    Aww, the good old days.

    Andi – I completely agree. I think I learned how to type correctly from KQ3 when you have to enter the spells just. so. or you die. I miss the feeling you’d get when you would enter into the process of casting a spell and knowing there was no turning back.
