Yeesha's a baby in Myst 3: Exile, she's a little girl in Myst 4: Revelation, she's a young woman in Uru, and she's an old woman in Myst 5: End of Ages. That's it as far as timeline.

Re: "Worried about dying in Spire"?

Exactly. I spent the longest time trying to open that hatch from above until I realized you had to jump into that hole with a vertical drop way up from above. I thought, "I'm not going down there, that's suicide!" Well, it is a near-vertical slide at first, but it tapers into something less steep.

(I like how in Uru, with your "pocket linking book", you can do stupid things like jump into a fissure of lava and you'll automatically warp out at the last second; like Gaming Steve said, it's nice to not be "glued" to the world.)

One of the most thrilling sequences in Myst 4: Revelation in my opinion is when you're in Spire and you drop way, way down over the edge of the age to calibrate the music machine.

There's the website:

The people who maintain that site did a neat fan contribution to Riven and Exile.

I don't deny that Riven was hard, but one thing that perhaps made me biased toward it was how I saw deep parts of the game before I got to play it properly myself.

But Riven was the game in the series that had the most effort put into it, after 4 years of careful, intense work. In fact, Riven's graphics are even better than Exile's, so they'd make "Real Exile" before "Real Riven."

I also think Catherine's journal in Riven was the best of all journals in the Myst series. (People have complained about the messy handwriting, but that's necessary to indicate how she is under intense stress while writing it and is writing it in the gloom of a dark cavern with no desk.)


Oh, yes. Let's not overlook how good the music is in the whole series.

I'd say the tunes from Myst are among the most haunting.


Also, Brad Durif (who played Wormtongue in LotR) did an homage to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in Exile when he shouts "NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!..." (He also showed off his ability to cosciously shed tears in Exile as well.)

Spore: General / Re: Spore Mods

The idea of modding Spore seems pretty moot.

If I had to guess, I'd say the editors, etc. could be continuously elaborated on by Maxis, and the depth of creature, etc. variety could continuously grow with the game's existence.

Does anyone here have a picture of the blue Noki character from Super Maio Baseball?

I'm sure it's good, but I haven't seen it yet.

However, here's something fans of the movie (or fans of the current oldest player in the NHL [Chris Chelios is 44 {he might have already announced retirement, but I would've missed it}]) will appreciate:
