Stories I Loved – November 2015

Since I already posted about two awesome books I read this month…

Since I already posted about two awesome books I read this month that you should be reading – Firebird and Other Stories and The Ghost Dragon’s Daughter – this month’s Stories are mostly non-books.

I have four for you this month… and hope you like them as much as I did!

Video Game – Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (Steam)

brokenswodI grew up playing King’s Quest and other such point-and-click adventure games. Back in the 90s, my family would spin the couch around to face my Dad’s computer and me and my brother would take turns sitting in my Dad’s lap and getting to “drive” the game, or we’d sit on the couch shouting out the answers to puzzles and munching popcorn while my mom worked on various craft projects.

Broken Sword is a game from that era, and I’m amazed I’d never played it before. Steam has the Director’s Cut – an up-to-date version with better graphics that’s compatible with modern computers.
