Even money is virtual. Our lives are virtual too!
I don't even exist! I'm actually a program that copies and pastes paragraphs from Hardcore Gaming 101, Luther's catechism, auto-translated essays about foreign art, and the 1st 30 search results for "pretentious garbage!"
So, as I was saying, even though it's not quite as funny, Space Quest V almost makes up for it in other areas. The narrative as a whole is much more focused, and it feels less like Roger is simply stumbling through various situations until the game decides to end. Speaking of which, Roger is a much more fleshed out character. In the previous games, Roger only spoke a few lines, with much of the humor coming from the narrator, but here, our hero comes off as clumsy, yet well meaning and likable hero. The secondary characters - sarcastic pilot Droole, man-hating Flo, and cranky engineer Cliffy, and even nemesis Captain Quirk - all have more personality than is typical of the series. The art style has changed from the other VGA games too, with more of a retro comic book feel, which fits in with the cheesy sci-fi theme. So even though it's not nearly as off-the-wall as some of the other games in the series, Space Quest V is still another fine adventure.
But, really, I'm still shocked that they aren't simply restricting accounts so that people can play the games that they thought they purchased.
