    My point being that document handlers of various kinds sometimes have splash screens.

    I mean it can not hurt at all, it's during the time it takes to load the program up. Unless you just hate splash screens for whatever reasons, which is totally fine but not something I would understand.

    I tend to draw the line when the application is done loading, but the splash screen stays up or must be clicked off.

    Also, on a slight tangent, non-skippable developer / publisher / video card / sound system / introductions in games.

    Yeah I can agree on that, once the app is loaded I would like to use it for what I was doing.

    Adobe's is (or was, I haven't used it in ages except for at work) particularly obnoxious because it takes so long to load that frequently you'll be looking at the splash screen for longer than you'll actually need the document, and it sticks itself in front of whatever else you're trying to get done in the meantime.

    3 saves sounds like plenty

    1 autosave, in a 'beginning of chapter / scene' sense

    1 save for "ok, the path is branching. Which way should I go?"

    1 save for "this seems like the 'correct' path; I should save and go the other way to see if I'm missing items".

    Maybe you're not familiar with the term "hardcore."

    If you'd like more saves, you can continue to play in "I'm a complete wuss" mode.

    So you can buy 150ml bottles of Heineken in Paris. This helps with the illusion of being hardcore no doubt, as soon I will be able to say I drank four bottles, which is equivalent to a pint

    I've not seen those. I like the 250ml ones. Frankly, I think half a pint is just a better base unit of alcobooze.

    Did I say anything about "hardcore mode" allowing you to have a life?

    Until I acquire immortality, I'm never gonna play a game on a hardcore mode like that. However, that does not negate the "hardcoreness" of it. :P

    And to be fair on the having a life aspect of it, it's not like you can't pause and alt-tab out of it. Just gotta not turn your system off until you're ready to save.

    I'm glad I gave it a few months between Sands of Time and Warrior Within. All this Smouldering Generic Rage would have contrast so harshly with Sands of Time it would have spoiled my memories of it.

    Still good Gameplay though.
