... the whole Klacks challenge was great! (He was surprisingly good at hopscotch)


I wonder if they Rotascoped that ? Next time someone meets Ragnar for drinks, perhaps they could persuade him to demo the moves and compare ;)

Aside from Bak'baar and the first Shift which were both already mentioned my favourite moments of TLJ are when April shows how caring and kind she is and how attached she's become to the people she met on her journey. The last time she goes to visit Brian for example, and says that she thinks he does care about Marcuria and to leave the last bottle of real whiskey for celebration after the fight is done. Or how reassuring she is when explaining her plan to Adrian, or with Ben Bandu, or when she tells the little Alatien girl about cows and horses. And gosh, I suppose my favourite tlj moment is not a moment per se but an element: April's kindness. 

*breaks into sobs* i just love April so much

Since this thread has been dug out, i'll add mine quickly.

I always love the part where Stick man Wick explains about how much it sucks to be a stick man :) I always find it amusing.

April stepping out of the temple, and the cutscene revealing Marcuria for the first time. A big part of TLJ for me is that sense of wonder at experiencing a new world for the first time.

Really really hard to pick just one favorite moment, they're really so many (every single scene with Crow in it, for example). Tobia's monologue before the Mural of the Balance (that someone else already mentioned) is one that could easily qualify for my all-time favorite moment, but I just thought of one other scene that hasn't been mentioneed yet:


April : Thanks for taking me on board.
The Dark People's Emissary : Who are you?
April : Uh, well, I thought you...I mean, didn't the old dragon...? Well, I'm April Ryan. From Stark. And I guess you're a, uh, Dark Person?
The Dark People's Emissary : But who are you?
April : I...I'm just a student. Not anybody special.
The Dark People's Emissary : You are special. Who are you?
April : I'm not...I'm just... (deep breath) I'm the Windbringer. I'm the Waterstiller. I'm April Bandu-embata of the Banda, and the Venar Kan-ang-la. I'm a Shifter. I will some day become the Thirteenth Guardian, protector of the Balance. And I'm April Ryan. This is who I am.
The Dark People's Emissary : Yes, that is who you are. And you are a Wave.
April : Why am I a...a wave?
The Dark People's Emissary : You have a purpose. You play an important part in the cosmos. A Wave is someone who propels people and events towards change, towards the future.
April : And...that's what I do?
The Dark People's Emissary : You are a Wave. There are ripples from your passing, and they spread far and wide. Those ripples will never die down. The worlds will be changed by your journey.
April : You're telling me that everything I do affects the universe?
The Dark People's Emissary : You can not escape it. You are a Wave.


I'll return (hopefully tomorrow) to post my favorite Dreamfall moment as well.

You could probably make a drinking game out of the long list of things April is.

 

"Today I went to the market and bought an apple, a cauliflower and a jar of black olive tapenade, but then they asked me who I was I said I'm a wave, a shifter, a waterbringer..."

 

NO! It's waterstiller. Glug, glug, glug! B)

My favourite TLJ quote .... and hence my name :)   Pity it's just my waistline spreading far and wide!  Favourite goose bumps spine tingly moment already mentioned (that's the first shift behind the cinema).  Conversation with the Teller's one of a few runner ups.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,

I hear it in the deep heart's core.   (from The Lake Isle of Innisfree, William Butler Yeats, 1888)

I must say I really did like that quote!

However, my absolute favorite moment of the game was when April was among the Alatiens learning about their lore. I really enjoyed hearing every single story.

In many games I play, I try to "capture the essence" of the universe by discovering its lore. TLJ has massive lore, but that specific moment, though short, seemed very strong for that.

 

I hope we'll see more of the Alatiens and the Maerums in the next games!

It may seem...I dunno, small compared to things - but for some reason when you guys mentioned this I thought of April Ryan in that maintenance mech launching herself into a nebula with the Guardian in order to reach his home.  At this point it just seemed so much like drastic measures and made her go beyond the realm of brave as that *definitely was not safe.* lol

My best moment in TLJ....was mentioned above already  :)

It´s the epilogue when we meet Lady Alvane and old Crow (she is April, right? I don´t believe it´s not her  :P )

How they talk and remember their adventures....it´s just...you know....tears-bringing  :wub:

 

And I save my best Dreamfall moment for later time  :)

Obviously I loved the whole thing, but the one moment that has stayed with me after so many years is the moment when April realizes that she's not "the one." It was heartbreaking, like all of a sudden she and her journey meant nothing,  but at the same time, no, they meant something. The whole thing meant soooo much, and it was all very profound and beautiful, even if she wasn't "the one."

True. Without her journey there wouldn't be a new guardian, even though she wasn't the new one.

But my favorite moment was when April challenged Roper Klacks. The challenges were amusing.

For some reason.... (In TLJ)

The scene where you have to get into the control room where the guard sits (at the end of the game when you have to get to the robot-costume-space-thingies) And you put viagra/instant heat (OF ALL THINGS) in his coffie and heruns away becouse he gets so horny.

I wasnt expecting that at all when I played it the first time xD
