  1. My answers to the quiz - apparently I'm drawing a blank on a few questions... 1. What is the Portable Car-Bomb Game based on and where can you find it? 2. Hal Barwood has only made three games at LucasArts. a) True b) False 3. There are how many Indiana Jones videogames? a) 3 b) 4 c) 5 d) 7 e) 9 4. Which character from Day of the Tentacle made an appearance in Sam & Max Hit The Road, and where? 5. Which LucasArts Adventures that were once released text-only have had CD-Rom Talkie versions? a) Indy Fate of Atlantis b) M
  2. I think this post over at Telltale Forums just solved it. Seen in context, it makes sense if you change two of the words around. Assuming it's an anagram, it can be read as: which really sounds encouraging. Of course, alternative interpretations are welcome.
  3. Can't be bothered to post in that thread, but I did post a thread of my own.
  4. Monkey Island 1 from the MI Madness compilation does indeed use CD Audio tracks for background music (and background sounds such as bird song in the forest and at the docks). As far as I remember, Monkey Island Madness runs smoothly under Windows XP without ScummVM, but I could be wrong. Been a long time since I played it.
  5. Having just recently read up on Loom history and finding out that there were indeed two more games planned, I just had to say this: With fantasy being the current height of fashion in Hollywood and computer gaming (in which it has always been the height of fashion btw), I really think LucasArts could do worse than doing a remake of Loom (with high-res graphics, quality digital music and speech) as well as finally get the two sequels into production and released. Or maybe this is something that should be better done by Telltale Games, considering their team members (who also worked on
  6. And I suggest... <drums> that you stop running two virus scanners simultaneously. That's exactly the kind of situation that will cause false positives like that. I'll shut up now.
  7. How about B5 (that's "Babylon 5" for those who've been away from Earth for the last ten or so years)? That universe could acommodate a whole host of different adventure games, detective games, RPGs, action games and flight games. It's full of interesting stories, sideplots that would benefit from being explored in more detail and all the other stuff that makes a good foundation for all sorts of computer games. Also it'd be interesting to see how a Marvel / DC character or group (who are mostly action heroes) would translate into adventure games. DC tried it with Batman, but I'd like to se
  8. ... what's up with covers.mixnmojo.com? Is anything happening or will it be vaporware? Is there anywhere else I might get these good (custom) DVD covers for my LucasArts collection like we've seen in this thread?
  9. Well, James Bond has already had an adventure game, though it was only labelled "James Bond: The Stealth Affair" in some countries. It's better known as "Operation Stealth" and I believe it was made by Delphine.
  10. I might have said something like "you might be able to get them if you contact LucasArts". No guarantees though, so "you *might*" is the key phrase here. But try it and tell us what they said, it might help some other fans on the board. As for me, I won't be able to even try since I'm overseas and LucasArts promptly redirects me, whenever I ask, to Activision who are certainly way less than friendly when it comes to end-users ordering items directly.
  11. Just had a thought the other day: "Timmy the Monkey" could very well be a nod to ThinkGeek's mascot (as seen here). Sure rings true with the inflatable Timmy the Monkey found at LucasArts HQ (displayed at WorldOfMI). Has anyone else seen possible "undocumented" or obscure in-jokes in LucasArts' games (i.e. not commonly known, and not displayed at LucasFans old site)? Or good references to LucasArts in other companies' games? Just curious....
  12. The ironic strangeness is that if George Lucas himself was in charge of LucasArts, I think we'd definitely see both Sam & Max and Monkey 5 being done. But as things stand now, I would agree with your analysis that "now is not the appropriate time" may mean they've decided to freeze development until after they're done with the current batch of Ep III games that are sure to be in development somewhere deep inside LucasArts.
  13. Same context as a movie? What ARE you talking about - I did no such thing. The "one man's work" of course does not exclude that fact that there were many talented people working on it. I'm pointing out that Grim was way above and beyond anything LucasArts has churned out since Curse of Monkey Island. At the time Grim was released, the average LucasArts title was already crap. Grim was better than the rest, and so it was not representative of the rest of the concurrent LucasArts lineup. When Curse of Monkey Island was released, LEC at least still had a decent number of good titles in their
  14. Oops - my bad. Of course, Grim is really great, both in concept and execution. But as LucasTones points out, it was basically one man's labor of love, and not representative of the concurrent LucasArts titles. At that time, LEC had already outsourced most of their development. The only really good games developed out-of-house at that time (IMHO) are the ones from Factor 5 (Rogue Squadron). Even though not really simulators, the Rogue games are still the best LEC flight-"sims" to have been released post-TIE-Fighter.
