  1. Is it inappropriate for me to ask which of these fan games are actually good?
  2. What we really need is another giant Triangle DOTT Box. That thing honestly doesn't fit anywhere. I'm just waiting for MI to come shipped in a stuffed monkey, or to come packed with a replica LeChuck Beard. One thing as well, is that moreso than boxes, I miss jewel cases. I was slightly disapointed that Sam and Max season one discs came in paper sleaves as opposed to a jewel case.
  3. I'll be honest, I don't think I would have bought Sam and Max season 1 if it wasn't for the fact that I saw a hard copy of it at Wal-Mart. In turn I ended up ordering season 2, TOMI (of course) and season 3. I think there is something to be said about hard copies of media, be it movies or video games. Its hard to feel ownership without a hard copy to look at and touch. To this day, I still haven't caught on to netflix, or steam, or anything else like that unless the products are unavailable otherwise (ala MI:SE). To be fair though, old school video game box art was a lot more artistic. I mean look at the first two Monkey Island boxes, which appeared to be (were?) hand-painted. They were visually stunning, and there is a reason why people on here were dedicated to making full size posters of them.
  4. Growing up in the 90s, I got to watch my older brother play all sorts of sierra and LEC adventure games, ranging from Kings Quest to Loom to even Freddy Pharkis Frontier Pharmacist. I never played the games until a few years later mind you, however I still managed to become obsessed with Monkey Island. Anyways, by the time 1997 rolled around, I had played through and loved Monkey Island 1 and 2 on my own, and eagerly anticipated the release of the Curse of Monkey Island, and the glorious return of Guybrush Threepwood. I wanted the game so badly for Christmas but my two older brothers convinced me that it would not be released until the New Year. Now by this time in my life, I had accepted that Santa Clause did not exist, and I had accepted that I would have to wait until my Birthday to play MI3. But on Christmas morning, there was one last gift for me to open, written as being from Santa Clause. I opened it, only to be so overwhelmingly shocked to see Curse of Monkey Island. I was so convinced that the game was not released yet, that I truly believed that Santa Clause was the only one who could have possibly gotten me the game. Thats right, The Curse of Monkey Island made me believe in Santa Clause Again. Now in retrospect, I realize that it was all a big ruse to get me excited, but that Christmas Night, when I booted up The Curse of Monkey Island and heard the first spoken words of Guybrush Threepwood, that was The Happiest Moment of my Adventure Gaming Life. So, whats yours?
  5. Hi, I'm Hellbeard and I used to frequent the Mixnmojo forum quite regularly about 7 or 8 years ago, however that made me 12-13 years old and I was incredibly annoying. In fact, I think I was what would be classified as a "troll" before trolls even existed. I made a habit of making stupid threads and irritating metallus, gabez, elTee and haggis among others. Not sure if I ever came close to getting banned, but I probably deserved to be. My most famous thread was "Hellbeard's Pong Challenge" where I challenged people to beat my score in a 3D internet ping pong game, and the winner got a desktop background I made (it was bad.. I was 12). I thought I was amazing at the game so I refused to believe people who said they beat my score. I was also obsessed with the fact that I got an Earl Boen autograph of his head with a dartboard drawn on it (He drew the dartboard). I'm from Toronto, Canada and I've played every Lucasarts Adventure game except for the Dig and Zak McKraken, and I am thrilled that Monkey Island, and Sam and Max came back from the dead. (remember when mojo lost its mind when Lucasarts canceled Sam and Max 2!? That **** was crazy!) Anyways, I just figured that with the recent influx of telltale and lucasarts adventure games that it would be a good idea to make a glorious return to the world of mojo.
  6. I'm pretty sure that mixnmojo has more super-talented posters than any other video game forum on the net. Amazing work.

  8. yeah, wow, but KOTOR2 is looking pretty sick as it stands. I don't know how it will compare to the original but we'll just have to wait and see. Too bad PC users will be waiting longer seeing as the x-box version is out in December and the PC version is out in february...
  9. We all already know why... why would we have to discuss it?
  10. Wow, you guys are still going at the Sam and Max thing!? I've got to give you credit though, you guys are certainly persistent. But think about it, by the time they release it, it will probably be out of date or something anyways.
  11. I framed this Lechuck Collage that I whipped together, which I then got signed by Earl Boen. Thats the only uber-kewl thing I have. Thats about it with the exception of my Storage Depot trapped games including triangle dott and my original copy of goldrush.... Earl Boen seemed really desperate for fan mail though, so if you're a Lechuck fan, its awsome. He signed all the stuff I sent, replied to my letter, sent a bunch of his own signed photos and all was done extremly neatly. But perhaps he is more popular due to his "running away screaming" scene in T3:p
  12. best: 306.85 Score: 1434.63 edit: Best: 417.88 Score: 1557.37
  13. *tear* Thats the first time anyone on here has ever said that to me... Edit:Here is a a new avatar I wipped up, it looks kinda crappy though because I had to really tweak down the quality to make it under 20 000 bytes, but its not THAT bad...
  14. I just had an Idea, perhaps just as a small message, there can be one "save sam and max 2" avatar that everyone uses in order to make a statement...
  15. Okay, for about 4-5 years now, my dad has been storing all of my old adventure games in this big storage depot place. I've got all my old sierra, and classic lucasarts game there, including Loom. I've been itching to play loom for as long as I remember, but my Dad refuses to break into the Depot now because its crap loaded with his comic collection etc... Now I know that you guys here at mixnmojo frown apon what Im about to request, but please just hear me out first. If anyone here knows a site with a freeware version of Loom, I would greatly appreciate it if you E-MAILED it to me at hotmail.com AND Iamadirtypiratingfool@worldofmi.com . Im not asking you to post it because then people who didn't own the game could get a free copy. But I assure you that I own Loom, and I would prove it if there was anyway I could. But all I want is a chance to play it. (btw, I tried underdogs, but it didn't work for me, so I need another site) Also, if you would, could you guys post if you e-mailed me just to keep this thread alive for at least a little while. (assuming it doesn't get closed first...)
  16. You could always spam the crappy lucasarts hintline if it still exists....
  17. I actually noticed our petition over on the gamespot sam and max 2 forum. Our petition was also over at the gamespy forum aswell. There was also some other one over at the IGN sam and max 2 forum... Gamespy S&M2 Convo= http://www.forumplanet.com/gamespy/topic.asp?fid=1422&tid=1310371 Gamespot S&M2 Convo= http://forums.gamespot.com/gamespot/board?board.id=914937 IGN S&M2 Convo= http://boards.ign.com/board.asp?brd=6241 (btw, can someone give me a quick refresher on how to integrate links into words, I can't remember any of the forum code)
  18. Is it cheating to sign the petition more than once with multiple different e-mail adresses? Because if it isn't, we can all just get a whole crap load of cheesy hotmail accounts and sign away....
  19. I know that I probably don't understand this situation as well as you guys do, nor do I think that you should really care about my oppionion, but I'll say it anyway. Adventure games just about dead in my oppinion, and why wouldn't they? People don't like to have to think or actually spend time thinking about what they're doing. People like first person shooter games where they can shoot endlessly, or RPGs where they just have to pump numourous hours into gameplay to become good, hell, even RTS games have more appeal now a days than adventure games just because they aren't as hard on the noggin'. People are lazy, and they watch reality television (need I say more?). I would have cancelled sam and max 2 as well if I was in their position just because there is no way that they could compete with games like Half-Life 2, Halo 2, Grand Theft Auto, sims, etc... It would be like suicide. Now don't get me wrong, I love Adventure games more than any other genre, and Im going to sign the petition, but I just don't think that there is any life left for the adventure game genre. Heck Im the only person that I know that actually enjoys to play them, even if I constantly advertise/lend them to my friends... (remember, I don't know much about the adventure game situation, so if I just made an ass out of myself, don't think much of it)
  20. Its funny because thats totally the type of thing that I used to do all the time, hence the reason why I was banned on numourous occaisions. But honestly, you could have at least made that convo somewhat legible or something, its like a big jumple of monkey poop. Now I just can't be bothered to post useless garbage, unless I feel I have a good reason (like now for example:D )
  21. http://forums.adventuregamers.com/showthread.php?t=1954 Here is a more direct link...
  22. 1. Hogie 2. MI 1 Guybrush 3. Manny 4. Sam and Max 5. Ben Whatshisname *entering KOTOR obbsession mode* HK-47 - Nothing like a trigger happy droid Zalbarr - He's a wookie, nuff' said Trask Ulgo- Because he taught my character how to put on his clothes.....
  23. Is it illigal to download a game if you already own it. Cause my Sam and max is packed away in my Dad's storage Depot, so i decided to download it so I could play it again...
