October 29, 2017: Broken Sword 2

DuoLingo Streak: 57 Days

Sunday. Today I decided that I was going to camp out in the living room today and play some Broken Sword 2.  The original Broken Sword was great, but it has been years since I played it.  I have been putting off playing the sequel for a long time, but the time has finally come.  The original is from 1996 and the sequel is from 1999, but I have never played it at all.

It took basically the entire day but I played the game, essentially from beginning to end, all today, which is pretty much the best way to play a point and click adventure of this nature.  Broken Sword 2 is stylistically identical to the first game, which is basically just like playing a cartoon, which is great.  It is great artwork and style, I really enjoy it.

Broken Sword 2 is not as long as the first title, which would be very hard to play through in a single day.  The story was not nearly as good either, but it was not bad.  A worthy sequel, at least, and definitely a classic.

So it was an enjoyable day for me, I liked the game and it was a very relaxing way to spend the day.  And I have been enjoying my Bota Box Nighthawk Black wine.

Before going to bed I also watched a couple more episodes of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is pretty good.
