: Any comments?
Well, it seems Indy just doesn't translate to action arcade as well. The computer games were intelligent and required problem solving. I guess it's because we require this from Indy that straight action games just don't work with Indy.
If that makes sense, congratulate me. I was up till 1:30 last night filming an 8mm movie with a cast memeber who excells at irritating me, and I just got up.
