Has to be Rubacava; so many places to go in that 2nd year and so many characters to meet and discuss; to me that was the bulk of the game as it took so long to get everything.

I voted Year 1 El Marrow. although Ruba Cava is cool, I liked the big city Art Deco New York atmosphere of El Marrow.

Rubacava ofcourse, it has more magic an romance, it has poetry , art and comminst friends.

More intersiting conversations with intersiting people.

Another vote for Rubacava, Year 2. Nothing can compare to that place.

Just thinking about experiencing Rubacava for the first time makes me "" intensely.

Rubacava for me too. A pity we couldn't visit Nuevo Marrow in year 4, the city was very interesting.
But, hey, a pity we couldn't visit El Marrow in year 1 It's one of the most important city in the game and we only visit a few "screens"...

^^Yeah, that's why we need a director's cut version with a huge El Marrow section.

Just as long as a directors cut wouldn't compell them to include nudity. They aren't kidding when they say boner

I also enjoyed the sureal absurdity of the edge of the world

Rubacava year 2 hands down, no contest. The directors cut should have a bigger slice of Rubacava to revisit in year 4 as well. I wish I could have seen what had happened to the Calavera Cafe and Max's Cat Track.

Nuevo Marrow (Year 4)
I love that part of the game.

Rubacava (Year 2) would be my second pick though.
Sometimes I wish I was a beatnik hanging out at The Blue Casket.

I really love the look of the Edge of the World, although Rubacava2 had the best set of puzzles.

Rubacava, handsdown. For the reasons that I love those guys in the Blue Casket, everyone in that chapter has an interesting story, and the location is a great place to be at night.

Rubacava, Year 2. It has a certain glamour about it. And great music, too.

Don't forget Captain Velasco, Membrillo and, of course, Carla, Toto and pretty much every other character.

Rubacava is also where you can spot most of the paralels to Casablanca

Year 2 rubacava is the "meat" of the entire game...the story really starts moving when you get there...it was such a classy place too. I loved Manny's tux. I decided to get one myself because of that game...I was still wondering if the game was amazing or really amazing, but when I got to rubacava year 2, it instantly turned too good to keep quiet about...love that game...
P.S. Tall Guy, it changed my life too



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

I was stuck for almost a year in the forest (damn tree) so when I finally got to Rubacava, I was glad to have places to go and people to talk to, besides, I liked the Vegas style

That was one of the few puzzles in the game that I actually got rather quickly. The one that annoyed me the most was the whole betting stub/getting the picture at the Cat Track.
