LBA Mention on a Retro Gaming site!

Just thought I'd inform you all that LBA has been mentioned at a retro gaming site. The site features a nice review about LBA which compares it to some modern day games (2nd to last paragraph). It has some good images most of which I recognise from the MBN so who ever it is (Bisse I believe they are called) must have visited here at some point (couldn't find name in the member list).

Oh yeah the link: here

EDIT: Turns out bisse was the same person who I mentioned in this thread.

A pretty nicely written review and nice to hear any enthusiasm about LBA.

I can relate to the first paragraph alot. It's hard to believe that such a game could of easilly gone right over the top of my head and i would know nothing of it, just like nearly everyone i know would of. The review is very good. I am convinced that LBA is a very good game and it's not just my abnormal taste for games because when you think about it; every review that has been made about this game has been very positive.
And i guess it's great for it to be remebered.

Nice review. The only bad thing in it is, when the person mentions the scene with the last runic stone. It's a spoiler. It shouldn't be in a review. However, it's really nice to see enthusiasm about this game all these years after. Who would have ever said that someone would remember the game these days... It's absolutely wonderful.

An active LBA community? I'm in shock!
Someone (Alex Ford) sent me a link to this place, so now i've joined, AND, there's a link to here in the bottom of the review. Unfortunely I couldn't add it in the "Official site" field, and I can't make it an actual link due to the so-far shitty review submission system, but it's there.

Nice to see people actually like the review. 8) I was just about to rewrite it because, quite frankly, it burns my eyes... also about the spoiler thing, I reasoned as such: It's not actually spoiling anything since it reveals nothing from the storyline. At all. It is also the one and only thing I never liked about LBA1 and, as such, I figured i'd help people not have to experience it now that's ive got the chance to do so. Because really; I was young and no doubt missed something important; but not even Sam 'n Max had that illogical and irrelevand puzzles.

Speaking of which, I thought the exact same thing, until I mentioned LBA2 as a quick sidenote in a random conversation about unreal thing, and everyone around me said "LBA2? That game is awesome!". Turns out that exactly everyone I know in school has great childhood memories from that game. So, it's not just you
