Still collecting lots of screenshots from Dreamfall. Concerns about the plot abound, but visually this thing is just relentlessly good.
I will say this: Dreamfall is big, scenery-wise. How big? I would liken it to Final Fantasy X. It’s hard to judge, though. I’m sure I’ll beat this game in under 20 hours, and even a “quick” run through FFX is going to cost you about 60. However, if you removed all of the combat from FFX and reduced the game to travel time and cutscenes, I think you would be left with something the size of Dreamfall.
I’m not saying one is better than the other. A game which offers 100+ hours of game time is pretty great, but there is also a lot to love about a game which strips everything out except the essential parts: Character, story, and exploration. It offers these juicy morsels without distractions or filler. It’s like a box of Lucky Charms with all marshmellows and none of the cereal.

Let's do some scripting to make the Starcraft AI fight itself, and see how smart it is. Or isn't.
