Quixker Update

All righty, time for another quixk update. The plan was for me to take my flight back home tonight, so I could get back to my computer, watch the "Days of Our Lives" episodes that I missed, play Nancy Drew, etc., etc..

Let me explain what happened in the good news/bad news style.

Good News: Michael is preparing for playing Nancy Drew: Trail of the Twister, with all its adventures and midwest storms.

Bad News: He's doing it by being the victim of a midwest storm himself.

Yes, my flight was cancelled due to thunderstorms or something like that, so now I won't be able to get back home to my computer until the weekend or so. Unless something else weird happens, like O'Hare Airport cancelling more flights.

And now I return to the land of Cool Hats, But No Internet. AKA Grandma's House.

aww...poor Michael. I had to beat the game before you, and now this? I'm sorry, dude. The world lives on your walkthroughs. =]

The Good News- Grandma's usually bake you cookies and give you stuff.

The Bad News- My grandma never did ANY of that. EVER.

dear Sofia, I'm that person that asked about that county siren puzzle and you said to go to herinteractive. I tried that but it would not let me see the answer- it was ALL BLANK! Thankfully I managed to beat it and now I'm stuck on the fujita scale or what ever it is called. this time can you tell me where all the maps that help me are? thanks!!!!!

sofia- oh, and on the only f side what is the differnece between the two colums? I hope you read the other comment I posted at 2:26 PM!

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry I'm bugging you, Sofia, but have you even finished the Trail of the Twister Game?

p.s- in the last comment I said the two columes. I think that the columes where wind speed and something else about speed. Thanks, Sofia!!

Anonymous said...

Sofia, the other colume is gust speed. how do you figure out the wind speed/gust speed? Like, if it said 243-300 (I made one up) how do you know if it's wind or gust speed?

omigod my friend that lives in chicago told me about storms. he said they were really freaking him out lol. i hope you can come back soon so we can see your walkthrough. good luck!

Izzy said...

well it was kind of a "perfect" storm for the new ND game I guess. Has a safe flight.

Alana said...

Yes, Michigan is also plagued with some crazy storms tonight. I learned that when my friend and I had to run from the mall to my car and it was pouring. :P

And Anon 2:26, :28, :32 & :37, you probably can't see the answers on the HeR message boards because those forums use a code called the "Spoiler Code" to prevent parts of the game from being ruined for those who haven't reached that point yet. To read the "spoilers", you can either highlight the black box or you can double click on the box. Then you should be able to read the hidden text :) Hope that helps, & you're able to continue your game! That Fujita scale is a killer!

Here in NE we've been having thunderstorms galore for the past 3-4 days or so! I was almost sure my house would get blown away last night 0_o Stay safe Michael!! Looking forward to your new walkthrough.

Thanks, Alana, but the message boards did NOT help. Do you know any other sites that could help me? Thanks!!!!!!

Guys, did u know there was an earthquack in Canada just yesterday? I did not feel it because I live in Rochester, NY.

Alana said...

Anon 5:09 - Hmm. I usually only use Michael's videos & the Message Boards (because I have an account on there). But before I got an account I used to use uhs-hints or gameboomers. However, it may be too early (since the game is not even released in stores yet) and they may not have their Trail of the Twister edition up yet. You can try googling "Trail of the Twister walkthrough" and see what comes up though. Sorry I couldn't be more help!

Elizabeth :

I had a YouTube channel with my bestfriend Lindsey a long time ago, we like never upload new videos to it now though, haha. It's alanaandlindsey :) When I said "account" before, I meant I had an active account on the Her Interactive forums. :)

& to your last question; I believe he asked you to rearrange the different candy stickers on the advertisement to the right of the store. & I don't mind, I like helping people out :)

Thank you, Alana! You are almost better than Arglefumph!!!!

I just finished the game! It was not as good as I thought it would be though......

Alana said...

Elizabeth : Haha, well thank you very much for saying so (that's a very nice compliment!), but I'd have to say Michael is totally better than me :)
& yeah that's fine, I live in Michigan. Sorry I couldn't help you at all today, I was super busy. But I'm happy to hear you finished the game! & I agree, not as good as I expected. The next one should be better :)

Wah! I didn't read these comments for a while, I didn't know I had so many questions. Sorry I couldn't be such help to you guys! Oh wait...Alana fixed everything in my absence. Well, thank you Alana.

Dear Alana and Sofia, you guys are such a help!! I would not be able to beat the game without you two.

-Elizabeth

Anonymous said...

aww...thank you. Even though I did like...nothing.

p.s. I'm thinking about starting my own Nancy Drew blog right here on blogspot to help people with Nancy Drew and stuff.
[not to steal people away from Michael's blog, of course, though, cause his blog will ALWAYS dominate!!!]
-Sofia
I'll let you guys know if I make one!

Alana said...

Elizabeth & Sofia :

You're welcome, glad I could help out :)

Anonymous said...

Lol, Sofia and please, let me know if you do make a blog.

Okay, so if you have any questions on TOT, I usually use
-Michael's Videos
-Gameboomer's typed walk throughs [although it may not be up yet]
-Her Interactive message boards, if you can't see it there's probably a spoiler code, just highlight it. =]
And if you're still stuck...then...just ask me, then! lolz
