  1. A fan recreated a promo for Culture Shock from back in 2006, using footage from the remaster. Hats off for dedication.

  2. And combined with the fact that only about 10 lines out of 12000 were changed, it shows how out of proportion the reactions have been.

  3. From Skunkape's lovely write-up: When I read that paragraph, I was wondering why this seemed vaguely familiar. Then it hit me. Back in the summer/fall 2006, when every last pixel of every bit of media Telltale was putting out was being put under a microscope, this huge render of Bosco's Inconvenience was among the assets shared with the press: Notice how the magazine here is "Playbunny," rather than "Hot Bunny" as it is in the published game. As I recall, someone noticed the discrepancy at the time, and I think it was guessed - maybe even explaine

  4. I have to say Skunkape did a great job with that Steam patch update. Hopefully being so calm and transparent will diffuse the situation for most people, plus it was interesting to read. And making it clear that people will get the originals as free DLC should also make some happy, too. https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1440440/view/2913231583179436796

  5. It's not my collection, and it's a month old, but I figured this was worth embedding. I've never seen the Maniac Mansion T-shirt at this resolution: https://twitter.com/MikeJMika/status/1333114880249958403

  6. I remember when the Maniac Mansion Mania project appeared something like fifteen years ago. I lost track after the first handful, but I admired the plucky ingenuity of the whole thing. The idea of enthusiasts carving out this homegrown framework for making bite-sized adventure games using recycled Maniac Mansion themed assets was so weird and cool...sort of a fan game precursor to Telltale. That it is apparently still going on is something to behold. I wonder if any of these "graduates" of the MMM "academy" went on to work in the industry?

  7. It is not a serious question. It is what we would call a loaded question, akin to "Have you stopped beating your wife?". The first part of the question implies that I have not made an effort to understand the arguments. The second part of the question implies that I must be some basement dwelling troll from an echo chamber, traversing the internet, looking for places to leave my racist remarks. This is a worn and well-known tactic used to limit replies to those that directly serve the questioner's agenda. I have not written what you stated. I wrote 'privileged' white people. I ha

  8. Your words are kind. We're about the same age, so I know what you mean about feeling like you found the LucasArts web scene just in time to be too late. I wouldn't hold out any hope for Sam & Max: The Lost Cases happening in this reality, but I do think that all the cool Sam & Max material that this particular team was generating, only for it all to be thrown in the trash, deserved to have more sunlight thrown on it than prior retrospectives have been able to. The idea that the Freelance Police team just sort of moved over to Telltale and got their Sam & Max

  9. I finally read the whole article, and wow. Just wow. Jason you’ve really outdone yourself. It not only takes me back to a time of great frustration, but it puts it in context clearly and thoroughly. I remember being so upset when LucasArts stopped being LucasArts. I was born in ‘86 and I’m not a native English speaker, so it wasn’t until probably ‘97 that I realised that all the games I loved came from the same company. I never thought it would’ve been on the verge of collapsing even then. I remember buying Grim Fandango as my first ‘legal’ release (I had played other games, mos

  10. I thought the voice direction in the Special Editions was good. I think the dodgier results stem from the fundamental awkwardness of performing dialog that was written to be read. The exceptionally capable Darragh O'Farrell (The Dig, CMI, EMI and pretty much every voiced LEC game from 1995 onward) is at least credited as Voice Director on those.

  11. Oh. Your post is still here. I thought you would have sobered up and removed it by now. Cute.
