I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Sekhmet Is Here!

I got my new laptop (HP Omen), which I named Sekhmet, last Thursday and spent nearly the whole day setting her up.  My favorite part was being able to download and begin re-playing Obduction -- but this time I am able to play the most-recently updated Obduction!  The difference is absolutely astonishing.  I can't believe it.  Even the loading screen has seen a change: now there's a purple seed surrounded by a circle whereas in the initial beta release it was an enormous circle.

Now that my graphics are beyond amazing and I can play the most epic graphics version of the game, I decided I need to retake a lot of screenshots for my little walkthrough I made.  You won't believe the difference.  If I ever get to get moving on it people are going to see some amazing images.  I got other games from the Explorer's Bundle sale and I tested them all as well.  The Witness is having problems for some reason, but the others seem to be operating just fine.

I played through Kaptar and Hunrath again so that I could get started on re-doing the cover of my walkthrough -- oh wait till you seeeeeee!  But I also decided to take screenshots of the old school graffiti in the train yard.  I have always loved old school graffiti.  Only rarely nowadays is gang tagging an art.  How far we have fallen!  Anyway, take a look at my images below (they have been cropped)!  Also, I used Afterburner instead of Fraps this time around.  That may have something to do with the improved quality, but I'm not sure.  Great program in any case.
