  1. Yup, you're right. The game does have a novelization, although it's been on the market for quite many years... Don't know if it's hard to get it or not... Anyway, check this link: http://www.amazon.com/Dig-Alan-Dean-Foster/dp/0446603791 BTW, it's great to know that even today there's still people that find amazing those classic adventure games!!!
  2. Hey, everybody... Does anyone know how many easter eggs are hidden in FT? The only ones I've ever seen is the thrown-bunnies-in-the-motor at the final showdown and the knife game with Emmet, but I'm curious about other ones...
  3. I found more stuff: Kath Soucie voiced Tavion, one of the main villains in "Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast" and "Jedi Knight III: Jedi Academy" (released in 2002 and 2003 respectively, I think). This is not FT-related, but maybe some of you don't know it: Boston Low (the main character of The Dig) was voiced by none other than Robert Patrick, famous for his role as T-1000 (the liquid-metal guy) in Terminator II. ...And more to come!! (Hopefully...)
  4. You dissapoint me, Rye Rye. At the beginning you got a point saying that the whole discussion of possible-actors-to-play-the-characters was in fact a bit pointless; then again, it doesn't hurt to share opinions, but I don't see the point in posting loads and loads of threads of "suggestions". Of course, this is MY point of view about that subject, and I don't intend to claim it is the 'absolute truth'. ...But then you started to insult everyone that doesn't agree with you, and saying that you're the 'real' human being in this forum, that you DO have a life, etc., etc. I think it's really nice to talk about an old game with people that shares your same interests, just like talking about a movie, book, place, anything at all. And it's each person's problem if they have a life or not, you don't have to criticize people about that. BTW, I don't give a d@mn if you post threads of critisism against me. I don't have the time nor patience to get myself into a fight about "who's right", and much less with someone like you. It's YOU who should get a life; stop posting here and go somewhere else. I know that many posters agree with me...
  5. Sorry for not replying earlier, legowar... I was in the middle of a ton of homework and exams at college, and it wasn't until now that I got a little breath of liberty The info that I provided you actually came from IMDb. I don't know where you can get more data from that game in that matter... BTW, the other day I watched the FT2 trailer (dated 2002, I think) in YouTube, and Ben's voice was already someone different to Roy Conrad. He died earlier that year, and was quite a shock to all the FT community... Well, actually it was worse when LucasArts cancelled FT2... Here's a picture of Roy Conrad: http://www.doublefine.com/roy_conrad.htm ...And one of Kath Soucie: http://www.retrojunk.com/details_person/101/ Again, sorry for taking so long. I'll try my best to visit all you guys more frecuently!!
  6. I agree with you, Vandel. In my opinion, the Wii Remote can emulate the funcionality of the mouse with great accuracy. The XBOX 360 and PS3 don't have anything similar to it; a point-and-click game using a GamePad just doesn't work for me... Let's hope that someday soon LucasArts goes nostalgic and launches a re-release of the classic adventure games on the Wii. We'll have to wait and see...
  7. Well, let's see... This is what I found doing a little research: Mark Hamill (ex-"Luke Skywalker"), who voiced Ripburger, has been in a lot of cartoons; as a matter of fact, he was the voice of The Joker in "Batman: The Animated Series". On the other hand, he hasn't been in many games since FT. Some of them were "Forgotten Realms: Icewind Dale" and "Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix", but (ironically) none of them are Star Wars-related. Roy Conrad (voice of Ben) participated in "Rebel Assault II" and "X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter". Kath Soucie (voice of Maureen) took part in "Fallout", "Outlaws", "Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds", and "Kingdom Hearts" I and II, among others. Cool, huh?
  8. Well, if you do have access to a Win95 computer, you can play the game there practically without any flaws. In a Win XP computer you'll most likely need ScummVM to do so, but (thanks to this little program) most probably you won't feel the difference. Check the Sticky, it's all there.
  9. Can you be a little more specific? Where is Boston Low exactly??
  10. Seems like you're new here... Well, I'm new too, and I give you a warm welcome to LucasForums!! To solve your problem, you might want to check the Sticky called "Problems with games? See here first.". You'll find it at the beginning of the thread list where this same thread is located. Perhaps the solution to your problem is installing the program ScummVM and running COMI from there. In that Sticky you'll find the link to download it. The game comes in 2 CDs because of the extensive lines of dialog and cutscenes all around the game; a single CD wasn't enough to store the entire game. You install the game using only the first CD, but as you progress through the game eventually you'll need to insert the second CD. There's no need to do any type of installation from CD 2; it's only purpose is 'gameplay'. I hope this helps you. Good luck!
  11. I haven't read the novel, but I believe it'll be just as you are saying: It has much more details and plot elements than those the game has, and expands on the characters as well. It was interesting to see what lead to the 'destruction' of the Cocytan race: The desire for inmortality. The Creator had this in mind, but seeking to benefit his race at the end. He didn't realize the consecuences of this until it was too late. Initially, nobody cared if they had to live a life of 'self-slavery', they only wanted to escape death. And then again, they changed their minds a bit too late... As a matter of fact, Brink himself admited that life through the crystals wasn't worth it. He only wanted more and more of them, no matter the cost. This shows us that it's better to have a short but 'rich' life, than an infinte but pointless one. Going out with friends, getting in love with someone, practicing sports, getting a job I like... I wouldn't trade any of that for being something close to 'inmortal'.
  12. Sadly, I have to agree with you. As a matter of fact, I don't know if LucasArts will ever resurrect the Adventure genre in his games; by today's standards, those game are not exactly "long-lasting". You buy it, you finish the story-line, and that's it. If you ever get to replay it, it will be many months later (or maybe years). That's why multiplayer games (such as Warcraft III, Unreal Tournament, etc.) are quite successful; you can finish the main story-line, but that's just the beginning: Endless hours of online play await. I would REALLY love to hear the official announcement of MI5, but we'll just have to wait and see...
  13. This is simply awesome, man!! All those high-res pictures almost got me mad... I think I won't be able to find this stuff anywhere else, so I send my deepest thanks to you, wendell!!! Keep up the good work!!
  14. Interesting... I inmediately recognized his voice; almost thought he would accidentally slip the word "Jedi" ... You were right: Small role indeed! The video was just 1 minute 21 seconds long, and he wasn't around the whole time...
  15. Then you just have to avoid killing innocent people and robots. If that doesn't work, you got me ...
