  1. A Star Wars adventure game would have been really interesting, but I feel like we might have been stuck with just Star Wars adventure games instead of all the original IP's if they ever started down that road. Still, that second screenshot in particular makes me very curious about what might have been. That UI is crazy though! It's hard to imagine how it would have actually been played. Seems pretty different from what we're used to in the other games.
  2. If we're talking about clothing, the only Lucas-related thing I have is a brown version of this t-shirt: it's not official, but I'm pretty happy with it. I'm actually surprised how often complete strangers comment on it - or at least they did before the world closed down. Apart from this I have most of the goodie bags that came with the early Telltale dvd releases, the Sam & Max comic collection rerelease that Jake worked on, and that big Tales of Monkey Island beer mug. I also have the various graphic novels/artbooks that were sold on the Double Fine w
  3. Yeah, I always read it as not much more than a parody of the Darth Vader "No, I am your father"-scene, with the weirdness turned up to 11. If, in an alternate timeline, Ron would have stayed at Lucas and started designing Monkey 3 right after finishing 2, I'm sure the vast majority of the game would still take place in pirate land, with that being the real reality of that world. After all, we have Elaine almost winking at the camera and talking about it being a spell from LeChuck during the credits. I know not everyone is a fan of the way they did it, but I always liked how Curse h
  4. According to Twitter Mike Stemmle is writing for this, and the voice actors are indeed Nowlin and Boat (it completely slipped my mind that Dave Boat did Max in Poker Night 2). I won't be able to play this either, but it's fun that Sam & Max are still doing their thing. There's a bit in the longer trailer where the player throws Max at a dart board, which I liked.
  5. I think you mean Frankenstein's monster. Who wasn't a monster, I agree. Wait
  6. I love how I just discovered that the forums are back, and how there's already this hardcore deep dive discussion on the Spiffy mystery going on. Good job guys, please keep going. I love all of you.
  7. Guys, guys, it's: 1. Revenge 2. Secret 3. Tales 4. That bit where you meet Herman Toothrot in The Cave 5. Curse 6. Raz saying 'it opens up into a system of catacombs' when looking at a tree stump in Psychonauts 7. Sid Meier's Pirates 8. Escape. I replayed the series not too long ago, and Escape has actually gone up a bit for me (still not enough to beat any of the others though). There are definitely weak parts (Elaine, the odd Herman stuff, a lot of the comedy/story stuff falling flat), but there are some good puzzles, some genuinely
  8. This is a dream come true. I can finally stop posting essay-length replies to random news posts (sorry about that btw). Now we just need some new games to talk about! Jake, when is Bone 3 coming out? Edit: Man, after all these years I'm still just a rookie.
  9. Yeah, reading that worried me a little. I love how much research you put into this ATM, but I hope you're okay. If you're not just joking around (which would be fine), please remember that there are more important things in life than this stuff.
  10. I haven't been here since forever, for similar reasons as ATM, but this brought me back here. Mojo tweeted this: @mixnmojo Mark your calendars... I hear #Disney will release a new #LucasArts adventure game on Nov. 30. #adventuregames (Really!) And then: Mixnmojo ‏@mixnmojo 20h20 hours ago (That is ATM’s personal guarantee, people!) And ATM responded: @mixnmojo The #LucasArts adventure game in question from yesterday's tweet? From what I hear... it's #TheDig, by #ProfBMoriarty. So, this is what we have. We all know ATM has some powerful friends.
  11. Okay guys, I haven't posted in these forums in years but this is important. I'm going to have to work in Africa for a couple of weeks, and all I'm taking with me for entertainment is an e-reader and a very old laptop. I've been filling it with old time wasting games, and because I've been on a bit of an Indiana Jones kick recently I figured I'd put all the old Indy games on there. My heartbreaking problem: I can't get Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures to run. The laptop is running Windows 7. From experience I know I won't be able to access the internet much there, if at all, s
  12. Oops, I'm an idiot. Biggest bummer of the year: not being able to read properly.
  13. It's not an option, but my vote would go to the fact that Telltale isn't talking to Lucas anymore to make more Monkey. Telltale wants to, Lucas doesn't. In some article they said that they don't expect to make another Monkey within the next five years . Oh, and the fact that the entire internet hates Telltale all of a sudden. They did some things wrong, and some of their games might be a bit rushed, and everything isn't perfect right now, but damn it, I still always have a great time with those games. There's a love for storytelling in those things that you just can't find in most other
  14. This episode was pretty fun, but mainly because this show manages to impress me every week by how far it has come compared to the early days (note: early days for me means Eccleston, not Hartnell). It looks just great, even with its modest budget, and I love how the companions are actually part of the plot now. I liked the Cyberman (although I wish they had a bigger role, I'm still waiting on a big epic Cyberman or Dalek-episode that's actually fun to watch) and the Sontaran, but the headless monks stole the show for me, even though they didn't really have a lot to do. Very cool concept (monks
  15. GOG's site and selection of games (and their price!) is amazing, but dear god, their marketing sucks. I actually saw part of that webcast (a friend was watching, I forgot about the possibility that it could be Lucasarts myself), and I'm glad I finally got a look at the idiot that's in charge of marketing. Does anyone remember them announcing they were out of business, leaving everyone who bought something from them wondering if they lost their games forever, only to announce it was all a joke some time later? They say they pull these 'zany' stunts because the gaming industry takes itself too s
