Just a bit off topic for a sec: I noticed your Quake avater... you had a chance to play Q4 yet?... I recently bought a copy for a friend's birthday and was considering buying it myself... if you have had a chance to play it how would you rate it?

Not yet. Doesn't look to me like there's much there except a nice pretty tech demo to me (like Doom 3 was). Maybe I'm being picky but FPSs haven't made me excited enough to buy them since...1996? Nothing new to do, sub-par storylines and unappealing characters mean there isn't much in the way of immersion (especially if you don't have a surround sound setup). Not even the Half-Life series has stirred my interest. There has to be more you can do as a character from a first person perspective than blast things with guns. Trespasser tried and failed, and the latest id Software and Valve releases have been used mainly for benchmarking and gfx hardware bundling. Go figure.

Meantime, my tastes have swayed to RPGs and other adventure game titles. Since the Tex hiatus my hunger for stories, challenges and characters has overshadowed all else. Well, except maybe Pacific Fighters. :wink:

Don't rein it back in yet!!! Leave it alone to roam free over hill and dale before captivity does horr....

I have a question for those of you who own the novels and it is: who published them? The thing is that I found one on eBay that was published by Prima but have they published both "real" literature and guides? I don't want to buy the wrong thing.

Oh, I'm new here by the way. Hello everybody.

Welcome...

Yes the books were published by Prima Lifestyles whereas the strategy guides for games are published by Prima Games. Different divisions of the same parent company. Although I believe only Prima Games exists now.

Just be sure to double check what you are buying. There were strategy guides for UAKM & Pandora published by Prima Games....

Thanks for the welcome.

Well, I've found a few Pandora paperbacks on eBay and with my luck the sellers only ship within the US. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

What about this option.....

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/ ... oding=UTF8

The listing for bankofbooks (third one on the list) and thebookhivedotnet (fifth on the list) state they will ship internationally....

First and foremost, a hearty welcome to sponny and theclarkster!! We are very happy to have two more members of the Tex family.

PDFs are on the way clarkster! What about you, sponny? If you wish to have both books in PDF, just leave your email address here or send me an email: texmurphy2@juno.com

Thanks for the welcome! I got those books and will be delving into reading them shortly... Once I finish with the other books on my list. Anyways, I was introduced to Tex Murphy by my uncle, Jon Clark (the same who was sound designer for the company), who gave me copies of both UAKM and TPD when Access Software became Microsoft Games. He was my info line up until the bitter end when he told me that the company was sold. Perhaps he can shed a little light as to what the current status is on the rights to the games. Anywho, i'll try to jump in here more often to join in on the excitement. Thanks again!
