04:50 am: This thing has gotta run out of fuel sometime...
ARRRRRGH!! I have had enough of this. I'm playing Indiana Jones & the Fate of Atlantis this week & for the past HOUR I've been sailing back & forth in this German submarine trying to find the airlock entrance to Atlantis. All of the FAQs I can find say something like "Once you've found all of the submarine's controls, you can navigate itand have it enter the airlock entrance." None of them make any mention of where the airlock is or what the bloody thing looks like. Anything that appears to be even remotely airlock-ish is either too far in the foreground or background & I can only move the sub up, down, left or right. I have been across the same five screens scores of times now. I know it's very late but I'm too riled up to sleep. I think it's time to find something silly to laugh at & then relax.

Current Mood: Not quite hysterical, but working on it.

Nope. It's nuclear. Or it runs on Orichalcum like those goddam statues.

That game consumed more of my elementary school summers than I would care to admit. Hell its predecessor, the point-and-click version of Holy Grail, was integral in my learning how to read. But then, come to think of it, so was the original Legend of Zelda game.

Anyway, I think the airlock is in one of three different place depending on what you did in the rest of the game. The real pain in the ass was finding the right Holy Grail at the end of the aforementioned predecessor. I think poor Indy had to be swept up by that nice Knight more than a dozen times...

This sucker's electrical, but it needs Orichalcum to generate the 1.20 jigawatts to operate the . .

Sometimes we find it necessary to sublimate ourselves into a psuedo-reality, but when we get there, we realize that it's gooey, dull and kind of smelly. Maybe we should stick to the fantisies in our minds rather than getting stuck in airlocked submarines...
