Fun section:


  • Venn:
    • It was 1995, I still had a DOS partition… and most importantly a copy of Full Throttle.
    • It was not my first adventure game, that honour belonged to Phantasmagoria.
    • However it featured animation in place of cringe inducing FMV.
    • It was also quite simple (even for the time) and hella linear.
    • I don’t remember much from my initial playthrough but recall it being entertaining.
    • FF 25 years and here we are again, 8 core CPU, 3D graphics and more RAM than my PC had HDD space at the time.
    • Out of the box it’s your standard Double Fine remaster.
    • New graphics, restored sound and sometimes a commentary track.
    • Full Throttle Remastered sports all three and best I can tell they didn’t dick with the gameplay, as is tradition.
    • So what am I looking for, entertainment, fun, nostalgia?
    • Let’s go with entertainment since that’s what it delivered and I’m immune to nostalgia.
    • Hey, it delivered, even with the hella obtuse puzzles and the ass eating combat segments.
    • I cocked around for almost two hours and only had to ask the internet how to puzzle twice.
    • Now was that trip worth $14.99?
    • Yes and no.
    • Yes for being able to revisit a classic and switch between the original and new hotness.
    • Yes for including commentary so I learned about design decisions.
    • No for not fixing the FSM damn awful combat because that’s where I tapped out.
  • Jordan
    • I never played full throttle back in the 90’s
    • I had a friend who was obsessed with it and told me all about it
    • Now that I’ve got a chance to play it, it’s just another point and click adventure to me
    • Sure, I dig the soundtrack, and the remastered FMVs look good, although a little south parky at times
    • My one issue with the game is that while it’s not hard to figure out what you need to do given the tools you have, it can be hard to find the exact thing to click on
    • 2 examples stand out
      • Siphoning gas. I knew I had to do it, but for the life of me couldn’t seem to click on the area that was the gas cap. IT would just show as the hover car
      • Finding whasserface in the dumpster. I knew that area existed, but for whatever reason the game wouldn’t give me the area transition arrow until I fullscreened and moused over the precise pixel
    • But yeah, I’m with Venn. The bike combat in this can eat shit. That too is where I noped out after about 8 tries
  • Empty
    • Probably my favorite adventure game of all time (sorry Space Quest)
    • It suffers from being a 90s adventure game, despite the pretty new coat of paint
    • If you don’t like adventure puzzles, this game is easier than most, but sometimes it still requires that “adventure game logic”
    • The voice acting and music are 100% on point
    • Gravelly voiced Ben
    • Mark “Cocknocker” Hamill as the deliciously evil Ripburger
