  1. Correct, I was just daydreaming for fun but the real chances of this happening are close to zero. Plus they aren't going for pixel art this time, which I recall was something Ron would instead use for a hypothetical MI3a. Still, all the secrecy is weird: while it's true that Ron doesn't feed hype, he often used to share screens or chunks of screens / production material even for personal projects, let alone full games. Something good's cooking.
  2. Well, Ron's Terrible Toybox has been working on a new 2D point and click graphic adventure for a long time now, and kept absolute silence about it. We still don't know what they're doing and, when things get so secret, I might end up raising my hopes.
  3. I got the HashtagCollectibles Max Plushie. Any known differences? Or is that a completely different product? It kinda looks exactly the same, including the tag.
  4. No problem! To be fair I wish I missed this, I remember I spent quite some time obsessively hitting refresh on the Bad Brain homepage for news about Sam&Max FP. You definitely dodged a bullet!
  5. Basically, this guy owned (or was one of the founders, I don't remember exactly) Bad Brain Entertainment, that German company that back in 2004 claimed a lot of promising things and (claimed they) had several graphic adventure games in production, with absolutely 0 concrete results eventually. Jason summed it up pretty well in this Mojo post. Please note the post is more than 5 years old, and in the meantime Bad Brain's website got shut down again and Mr. Kierdorf is focusing on that YouTube channel now.
  6. Tried already with the same outcome My last hope is trying it on another computer asap. Thank you for all the support, guys!
  7. I'll have to wait a little bit to be able to, which is torture!
  8. Yep that's the error, It'll ask me to format it. I don't have a machine with Linux at reach right now, but I highly doubt it's the issue, since 99% of the players will open this with a Window system.
  9. @Laserschwert Well that's disappointing, I can't seem to read it at all. I'm on Windows 10 so it's not like I messed up a Linux setting. Currently raging.
  10. I'm looking for a way to ensure that I don't corrupt the USB in the remote case my PC has some malware. Will post here as soon as I plug it in.
  11. OK, this is what we were all waiting for anyway I suppose: And everyone's favorite candle holder! There's more stuff but I guess I'll leave the rest as a cliffhanger for the other collectors?
  12. So glad they've removed it! OK, a bunch more before trying to get out the statues and the rest out of the polystyrene. I need to be extra careful.
  13. Don't have a floppy driver anymore, shame on me. Will have to wait. It is, yeah! More stuff:
  14. Glad to, but you'll have to wait until I sign off from work. I'm kinda maniacal for the way I keep relics such as this one, so I need to be extra cautious and not rush it.
  15. I can't believe how freaking massive this thing is! Wasn't expecting it. Here's a MI2 box comparison: I've also received some fancy numbered card with that odd-looking first take of EMI Guybrush. Good times!
  16. I'm leaning towards seriously believing that the so-called Voodoo Priest in MI2 (such an elusive character in the game, not sure why he needs to appear in two cutscenes with a fully animated sprite just to completely disappear later on) was originally El Carlo. The throne bears his mask and it was supposed to be his own "office". @ATMcashpoint thoughts on this?
  17. You worked on it Nano? That's great to hear, can't wait to receive mine
  18. On a side note, will I have the guts to open it? I still have 2 Thimbleweed Park copies shrinkwrapped, surely you can't keep them in a better condition but I feel like I'm missing out a lot this way. End of the OT.
  19. I appreciate this can be ideally true, however money is money. Makes me think of all those rock bands who split because members hated each other's guts and reunited decades later. Pretty sure reprints might become a thing for LRG in the future.
  20. We might just consider it to be a very rare version, I can already imagine this version being much more valuable than a potential reprint with the fixed order. Well, I'd still re-buy it anyway. Who am I kidding, I'd rebuy it with the same misprint too.
  21. I don't know how I've ended up there, but the title pretty much says it all. It looks like Mr. Kierdorf has once again stopped pretending to working on Bad Brain games and... went all-in on YouTube? I wasn't sure initially, after all having boxed LEC Games is de facto standard for a German citizen. However, I doubt this applies to unreleased gems as "The Orgastic 4". Here's a less scammy look from a shady, shady character that tried to enter the games industry from the back door. From better days it seems! Well, the Bad Brain website is dead again, and I just found this stuff grotesque: That's all I got, till next Wolfie mischief!
