  1. The only explanation is that everyone is too busy playing to comment, only stopping to eat, drink, sleep and defecate, simultaneously to save valuable game time.
  2. Whoa whoa whoa. I was asking about this insane CD-ROM version of Psychonauts. Wing Commander IV barely installed the executables, never mind anything else, and I spent way too much money on the DVD version back in the day. It was a sneak peek at what it would be like to be @elTee.
  3. I had no idea. My brain went to Wing Commander IV rather than Phantasmagoria, but it's the same deal. Imagine still thinking it was a good idea to ship a game on multiple CD-ROMs nearly ten years after my favourite FMV-fest. At least with those old school games you got a sense of achievement as you advanced through the CD-ROMs. Except when you had to swap back to disc 1 because you died. I'm curious to know too - did the FMV get streamed from the CDs, or was it all installed? It was installed, right? It must have been installed. Right?
  4. Benny is fired, if so. AndyWinXP for king.
  5. Benny for Supreme Leader Marshal of the Republic.
  6. There's a big gap in the market for a low quality knockoff stuffed with medical waste. Just putting it out there.
  7. I hate getting ruined on the Xbox Showcase.
  8. Ooh, listen to Mr "I've got a PS5" over here. I wish Psychonauts 2 was coming out for the car radio on my Rolls Royce Phantom, you don't hear me going on about it.
  9. Isn't Harrison older than the Ark of the Covenant at this point? Still, if they can paint out his zimmer frame with CGI and inject half the fun of the original movies, I'll be on board.
  10. From the mystes o' tyme, here are some more! My browser goes all whacked out if I try to download the links directly, but if I paste each URL into a new window it works??? Maybe I'm just unlucky and you won't have any trouble.
  11. COMI isn't a 16-bit Windows game, so it should work fine on a 64-bit OS with some coaxing! You could try the setup program and launcher made by the excellent human at Quick and Easy Software: Installer Launcher Let us know how you get on!
  12. Tall Guy! Tall Guy! Tall Guy!
  13. How long will it be until the letter from Gabez is a collector's item in itself? Anyone's home would be improved by some signed SCUMM Bar newsletter comics on the wall.
  14. Whoa that icon is cool. And much better than the boring one they actually went with, as far as I'm concerned! Are you saying that the data for the cool icon is actually on the duplicated Monkey Island 2 disks, but you can only access it by digging into the filesystem as it's been "deleted"? Someone needs to re-upload all the Monkey Island 1 icon images from the archived thread Benny linked before. Definitely the coolest Amiga icon in the business, especially with a suitable colour palette. The Workbench 1.3 palette worked out pretty well, but I'm led to believe that the Monkey 1 disk itself somehow defined an even better one?
  15. This is great, but who are the humans in these photos? There's the one with the face, and the other one with the hair and also a face, and then there's Gabez. I know that one. How do I know what Gabez looks like? I don't know. And there might be a fourth human form faintly visible on the boundary between this dimension and the next, I'm not sure, I can't be bothered double checking even though it would have taken less time than writing this bit. And then there's a picture of a train ticket. Train tickets! I remember those. I even remember the ones like in your picture where they said "Rail Settlement Plan" over and over in the background like some demented government spokesman stuck in a groove. Is this a security measure? Were they expecting would-be ticket forgers to fall asleep before they could manage to copy and paste these boring words enough times to fill an entire fake ticket? Still, I can't help but think that something has been lost with the move away from "Rail Settlement Plan". Something comforting. Like a warm blanket enveloping you, dry and not drenched in a tramp's piss, a stark contrast to the interior of the train you are about to enter. Oh look, it's cancelled. And so are all the other trains for the rest of the day. And now my rail replacement bus is on fire. Never mind. Rail settlement plan. Rail settlement plan. Rail settlement plan. ...is the sort of thing I would have posted if I hadn't eventually spotted that the first link explains who everyone is, it's only if you click the second link by itself like a big buffoon that you get confused by the lack of context. Good job I didn't do that then.
  16. You haven't truly solved an adventure game puzzle until you've used everything with everything, exhausted every line of dialogue, used everything with everything again (just in case), then finally realised there's an entire room you haven't walked into yet which contains all the answers to your problem.
  17. Why would you do this? You've doomed us all.
  18. What, he's a secret agent and that's his actual face? Having a blurry face must be quite a useful attribute for a spy, I suppose.
  19. Who's the guy in the background with the blurred out face? Secret agent yeah? Or is that his actual face?
