actually wait, presumably the telltale store is no longer up, so do i even still own a digital copy of wallace & gromit?

i have the disc version so it’s not a huge deal, but a bit more annoying if I want to play on tiny computer

OK, the telltale store is still up

it looks like I have another digital copy of everything I owned on there other than W&G and TOMI, but redownloading the installers for those just in case I ever lose the discs

ah, now i'm remembering the issues with this

it's fine to use an impersonator when the original VA is too ill to play the role, but Wallace's VA here is very noticeably different - there are some moments where he nails it but it gives an odd feeling even from the start.

the bigger problem is the controls - this was one of telltale's first games with controller support, and it shows - even when using mouse, the hotspots overlap more than you'd think

so sometimes the one you need can be so covered that you don't actually figure out it was clickable

also, some of the logic seems... off, or unrewarding. the more grounded nature means that you have to jump through more hoops than it feels like you should for the most mundane items like "toast" or "a teabag"
(i know this is a common problem with the genre/worse in others, but still)
