    If you use Chrome on your phone, you can request an internet page which looks like a desktop version, not a mobile version…and you can do it for ALL pages you visit.

    Go to the page you want, click the COG in the top right, then scroll down the list of ptions and it will say “Request Desk-top page” (or something like this)… Then just tick it, the page will re-load as if it were on your PC.

    I realize this is an old post, but it may help you out in the future, so I see no harm in posting.

    freaking awesome!

  • Frustrated beyond belief

    I have played this game so many times it’s ridiculous, but that last empty bottle where I have to kill a dead thing on horse back no less is almost impossible to do unless you are a master of archery as you have to use your bow and arrow lol. Other than that, I’ve managed to beat the game about half dozen times now and have all the stuff, mind you it takes a few months of constant back and forth [old and young again] before I can do it lol. I am addicted to it. I have the complete walk-through guide I printed out here at home. I find I have to use it each time I play to remember where all the little stuff is, like all the spiders, heart containers etc etc, not to mention the maze to get to Sarah. What saddens me is when I’m done the only thing left is to bash Gannon over and over again, I was hoping to see what the world looked like after I was done the game, so it was a big disappointment when I didn’t but as for game play, I will continue to kick Gannon’s butt 🙂

    Killing the ghosts with the arrows is actually easy if you do a little glitch. If you find where the circle is you can sit inside it and move slightly forward and it will still send out the ghost. So you can shoot while not moving

    Still not done one year later

    Have you ever tried to complete gauntlet? You unlock it when you re complete all the bosses in your dreams. It’s by far the hardest challenge I have ever TRIED to complete. Usually get to it after I kill Gannon a few times 🙂
