Hi all (and especially Mark),

This is Patrick Gann. I write for RPGFan.com

It only took a little bit of coaxing, but Josh sold me on the games through his beautiful soundtrack. So I thought I'd play both games. And I did.

And I wrote about it here:

http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2008/1539.html

Mark, I want you to know that I was floored by the awesomeness of this game. The plot especially drew me in. It's not so much the moral ambiguity, but rather the emphasis on compromise that I found so appealing. No one can live by standing on this or that ideal; it all falls apart, and then you find spies bringing down whole airships in an attempt to serve the "greater good" by preventing what is essentially a nuclear war.

So um...yeah. Awesome work.

Something you may be interested in seeing...and I know this is a little self-indulgent...

I keep a list of every RPG (including graphic adventures) I've completed. You know, start to finish, saw the end credits, lalala. I'm now at 141. Want to see where you rank?

Thanks Patrick! It was great to read your review. I know that Josh was thrilled with the soundtrack reviews too.
That's not a bad ranking at all! I only hope Mr. Wright doesn't put in an appeal. Surprised
