The game I had alluded to is of course, Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident!
This isn't the type of game I usually go for, but something about this one just appealed to me. Maybe it is just the fact it is so different than most Wii games, or those that I have a penchant for playing.
Mystery Case Files is a series put out by Big Fish Games. It is pretty popular with the PC crowd, but this is the first ever installment on the Wii. You can think of it as an "I Spy" game with an adventurous twist. I have actually picked up and played a few of the I Spy games and they are fun, especially with family and younger kids.
The Malgrave Incident incorporates the "hidden object scenes" to help you collect the mysterious powder Malgrave needs to save his "beloved Sarah," and to accumulate inventory items to help you solve puzzles or perform necessary actions.
I got the game yestrday, (Thursday, July 7th, 2011) and put it in later that night (well, technically early Friday morning, but you get the drift). Before I knew it I was 20 minutes into the game!
I wound up playing and recording 2 parts with commentary. I have already edited, converted, and uploaded the first. The second will get processed tonight while I will be recording Part 3.
I have to say it is fun so far. I have limited myself to trailers and text reviews, so I haven't blown anything...I will be making a genuinely blind walkthru of the game. I'm not sure what all it has to offer, but I will do my best ot achieve 100% completion. I am also uploading the entire" hidden object scenes" for the simple fact I want viewers to be able to watch the videos (if they get stuck), and find what they are missing. It will no doubt be tedious and I'm sure there are times you will be yelling at me to pick up the item right in front of me, but hey, it is live and we will take what we can get.
Once complete, I will archive the playthrough here and give a final review. I picked the game up at Target for $29.99 (got the last copy too, haha!) and I am sure I will get my money's worth in entertainment time. The Multiplayer Mode is supposed to be fun as well. For now, I am focusing on the Single Player Adventure!
Here is Part 1:
And just fyi...to SAVE YOUR GAME, simply exit to the main menu...this was not mentioned in the instructions and being a rookie to the series, it was unknown to me...I thought you must have to hit a save point or something, not the case...just back out and you are golden.
I should be uploading this one regularly to go along with the Wii Fit Plus Playthrough.
I hope you enjoy it, if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to help you out.
