  1. I recently picked up something that I highly doubt anyone else here has, as I'm probably the only person crazy enough to do so. They are Pogo (bootleg Lego) figures of the Telltale versions of Bane, Batman, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, The Joker (and John Doe), Mr. Freeze, and The Riddler. I ordered them back in November, and they finally arrived this month (since they shipped from China). I wasn't sure what to expect, since I read that Lego bootlegs by Pogo can vary hugely in quality from awful to just as good as the Lego figures. Now that they've arrived, I can
  2. I created a Monkey Island page in 1997 (the Monkey Island Mega Monkey page) that was on the webring, The first iteration had a blue sky background and swinging Monkey gifs from Monkey Island 2. It was hosted on my computer through the dyn.dns service. I was lucky to live in the Time Warner Road Runner (then called Line Runner) testing area so my parents got high speed cable internet way back in 1995.
  3. I loved the webrings. My favorite was a site called SCUMM, which simply had a Monkey Island parody of the Cheers theme song. I've thought about doing a video parody of that song, but I don't know who I would credit.
  4. Yes, I'm also super grateful that the forums are back again. I've been using the Double Fine discord and the Telltale forums to keep up with people I consider online friends, but I also consider my fellow Mojo updaters and the Mojo readers online friends too. I've noticed that it has a lot to do with age and (for the game forums) genre. The Steam forums have always been hot trash because it's always attracted a young (13ish) demographic. The GOG forums have gotten bad as they've become more popular and attracted younger people themselves. The Mojo forum, even whe
  5. I did a video version of the bloopers from the Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures datafiles that could be found using bgbennyboy's Telltale Explorer back when I was just starting to get the hang of video editing 10 years ago: Then I did a mashup of The Wolf Among Us and Night Court (appropriate as Night Court is seen on the prince's TV in that game). This was done 4 years ago. The Night Court intro, for comparison:
  6. People demanding that minority characters being played by minority actors is absolutely not overreacting, though. The entertainment industry is heavily tilted against minorities. You absolutely can't achieve inclusivity and social change without progressive politics. That's the raison d'ĂȘtre for that whole movement. Speaking from experience, as an actor/voice actor myself, I know that there are tons of people of all ethnicities and backgrounds having seen them when I respond to casting calls, even in an area as small as mine. Casting minorities definitely is not limiting the pool
  7. Inclusivity is never a bad thing, for any of those you listed. There are black and brown voice actors who are not being hired for black and brown characters because white voice actors are hired in their place. There are paraplegic actors who are not being hired because able-bodied actors are being hired in their place. Trevor Noah put the situation quite well over the controversy surrounding the original intention for Scarlett Johansson to play a transgender man, before she stepped down so an actual transgender man could play the role. Paraphrasing Mr. Noah, "The issue isn't that
  8. To be fair, this isn't a case of it being just a product of its time, as it's not being released as it was in 2006. It's a new release brought up to modern standards, so anything that doesn't fit modern sensibilities is fair game to criticize. For example, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards got (and still does get) a pass for the depiction of the Indian-American clerk selling "lubbers" because it was created in 1987 (and even the first (SCI) remake was released in 1991) so it was a product of it's time. However, when Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded was released in 201
  9. Both are really programming-intensive as they require at least a moderate amount of C language knowledge to use. They both are feature-rich in the games they can make though and feature most of the SCUMM functions. I never could get ScummC to compile using GCC for Windows. I primarily use macOS now, which is *nix based, so it might be fun to try to do it again on my current machine. In order to compile and use ScummGEN, I pored over the C source code in order to see how it actually functioned, which is admittedly not a skill that a lot of people who want to make SCUMM g
  10. As a historian and president of a computer museum, I would absolutely love to have the tools for archival and preservation purposes. But, as a developer and gamer - there actually already are tools to make a brand new SCUMM game that can be played on floppy disks. ScummGEN already can create fully playable games in SCUMM that can be played in ScummVM on one of the many platforms it supports or with the Day of the Tentacle executable in DOS. I accidentally originally said I used ScummC above. It was actually made in ScummGEN. I tried to play around with Scumm
  11. Plus, if you want your game in ScummVM, there's Wintermute (it even has 2.5D capabilities ala Grim Fandango). SCUMM is certainly fascinating to play around with (I've dabbled in ScummGEN when I compiled and added some missing pieces to the ScummGEN Indiana Jones fan game), but if you really want to make adventures, there's plenty of modern tools out there.
  12. Maniac Mansion NES was the first adventure game I ever completed (Space Quest II was the first I ever played, but I never completed it until much later), so I'm always happy to see someone mention it. Speaking of that, I've been collecting the Flashback dedicated consoles and managed to snag the Adventure Flashback Blast! for a good price on Mercari. It contains games based on Disney and Lucasfilm properties, and surprisingly it also includes the NES version of Maniac Mansion. I managed to talk to Ron and Gary at PAX East when I was working at the Double Fine booth, an
  13. Want to? Yes. Can do? No. Luckily Laserschwert's poster art is darn near perfect. I'm not sure if it can be topped.
  14. I'll ping the staff at LCG Entertainment about the login issue. Not sure if they'll be able to do anything about it since it's a legacy release, but it can't hurt to ask.
