99 Ways To Tell If You Are Addicted To NeoQuest II

by precious_katuch14


GAMES ROOM - Do you have the sudden urge to click ahead onto the “Puzzles” section? Do you skip every other game…most especially flash ones, in favor of a certain game that is divided into five acts, chock-full of monsters, heroes and heroines and extremely challenging to your mind and fingers?

Well, you came to the right article. I deal with what people may call ADDICTUS SEGUND-NEOQUESTIA, or the condition wherein you are hooked onto the sequel of Neoquest, better known as NQII. Many people do suffer from it, myself included. And it gets worse when you enter Insane Mode…sometimes you end up seated on your chair for like…A WHOLE DAY WITHOUT MOVING! [Faints]

[Gets up and resumes]

A Paw To Hold On To
I froze and turned my head towards the clutching party gingerly. Standing there, leaning over the bushy, wispy fur of my tail, was a small yellow Kacheek.
