  1. God that thread was weird, but I'm really kind of annoyed it was locked. Those were some deep cut references there.
  2. In case anyone was curious, I e-mailed Double Fine about Once Upon a Monster and Tim Schafer is credited as doing some writing while Lee Petty is not credited at all.
  3. I would like a new one, but I'm sad the game was only finished on the DS. Won't this be confusing for those who did not play the DS title? That said I didn't mind the action parts! Had they been tighter and more inventive I would have loved it more. I guess most people didn't like the separated action and adventure parts, but I certainly had fun with them.
  4. Thanks for posting, I am actually weirded out seeing Schafer so nervous and less cool. He seems like a constant source of charisma these days.
  5. Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you could help me with the Double Fine credits for Happy Action Theater or Once Upon a Monster. Or if you don't want to type out the credits, can you give me the titles given to Tim Schafer and Lee Petty (if any)?
  6. Oh I just love humor about women being raped during war time: "This Old woman told him something about kidnapping, strange acting persons, a slimy creature who has bulimia, a telefonbook where she got his number in the section and she mentioned the old Mansion. Of course she also talked about ... Adolf Hitler... the rubble women after the end of world war two... her own war imprisonment and how russian soldiers died while raping her ... her twenty cat's in the last 60 years ... and more bull****. " Seriously, **** this game.
  7. I think I have the old Sam and Max show VHS tapes at my parents house...
  8. Yowza. I am hoping these guys will make it. I backed more than I like to say, but I am enjoying the podcast and commentary things even though they can get a little bit boring and the updates are pretty spammy.
  9. I love that this happened and I am amazed on how much press and Facebook shares it's gotten, even by people who have never played an adventure game (or Double Fine one) in their lives. I think a lot of people are also excited about the prospect of someone releasing a game well funded directly by the fans. It's nice Double Fine is in the middle of this.
  10. Are those the items where you are not allowed to drop them in the pot and can burn them? I actually forgot. Is the sword master t-shirt always forced? I know the buried one you don't even have to pick up. I should recall all of this, but I thought either dying under the dock or the pieces of eight in the Grog machine were the only ways to seriously get stuck.
  11. Back from the dead! You can get the fire to light the cannon by throwing business cards inside the stove though. I think Stan is forced to give you at least one along with the compass. Guybrush actually doesn't let you burn the brochures even though you only need one. You definitely can't mess up the ingredients though. The first time I figured it out was just throwing everything in my inventory at once.
  12. I get the feeling these aren't coming out. I would rather them not anyway. It would be weird to remake all of the games so that they have the style of LSL7. These screenshots look like a big mess to me because while the characters in the remake of 1 as well as 5 and 6 have a wonky style to them and Larry is malproportioned, his look is still a far cry from LSL7. Why not redo each game in it's respective style? Basically I see it like this: LSL1 (original),2 and 3 are all more realistic depictions, while LSL1 (remake), 5 and 6 all share this gaudy loud look with rounded cartoon charac
  13. I agree fully with you Thrik, even though I like the idea behind the pirate buy out. It maybe didn't belong or it could have been better executed, but I was definitely more interested in the story than CMI. Elaine was also just botched and turned into sitcom nagging wife, which wasn't very funny or clever at all, but I can get past that. Unfortunately the author of the article seems to think Elaine was nagging every game before EMI but I have no idea why. I think what ruins most of EMI for me is just the bad art direction. It's a shame because the music is so great and it doesn't mesh wit
  14. North America hates boxes and anything resembling a hard copy. This has sort of been a trend over both console and PC games that are not big budget for the past two years.
