  1. Totally missed it on my remastered playthrough; I had thought I'd still have a window where Glottis was back playing piano in the club after getting kicked out of the High Rollers' lounge, or that the item would stay in my inventory after being shown. Unfortunately a lot of stuff happened in a different order than my way-back-when playthroughs as a result of still remembering generally what to do to solve everything, but misremembering lots of other little things about the environment.
  2. I'm well, thanks! Good to see you, too, and glad to see so many familiar folks lurking about. Love the GFN redesign. Okcor does it again!
  3. Playing on PS4 now, I encountered a Manny warp zone on the El Morrow rooftop (pigeon puzzle) in Year 1, where you teleport from one position on the roof to another near the vents—perhaps related to the scripting of the guard pigeons' routines/detection as you approach the main flock—but it's the exact same glitch I encountered on my first playthrough on PC way back when. However, apart from being visually jarring, it is easy to avoid and doesn't break anything. I've seen a couple of other strange placement issues and glitches in animations (only in Year 2 now), but I'm not really convinced they're new glitches, but rather ones that have been present since the original release, and are now preserved. Overall performance is fine in-game, but saving and loading games seems to chug (almost) to the point of concern. Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show) Hello
  4. Sam and Max in the Fable series are much more bumbling than the Freelance Police. I'm guessing that the names themselves are a reference, though.
  5. If there are any working versions of SCUMM Revisited floating around you could probably at least learn the file format using that software. I know Grim's not fully supported by that program, but you could still look at a few things as I recall.
  6. I found this pie chart to be more interesting than pie charts typically ought to be: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Origins_of_English_PieChart.svg It doesn't really highlight the imports from Dutch, Spanish, Yiddish, and other sources into American English, though. Also: Cookies (as opposed to biscuits)
  7. Thanks for filling this thread up with nonsense though, Ray.
  8. Stop talking crap about LucasArts. They make kick-ass games, yo.
  9. This thread has the spammiest-sounding title ever. Congratulations. Just don't ask where to get a good home mortgage rate next.
  10. I think what we're all trying to say here is this: Play TF2.
  11. I claim the Domino Hurley sound pack (and I know you guys still have it, right? )
  12. I'm assuming all times posted are GMT as these guys are mostly British types. Since the US did "Spring Forward" before the rest of the world, I am having trouble translating the times to my local (it's usually eight hours' difference). I'll wait for someone to message me ;
  13. I'm not sure what I'll be doing over the weekend, but you know I'm logged on to Steam pretty much whenever my computer is on, so message me up.
  14. Today, the Escapist Magazine released a 3-page article about Grim Fandango and its fan community called Walk, Don't Run. It's a pretty nice feature, and includes interviews of: Ryan, AKA Thrik, the guy running this joint; James Isaac, who runs the DoD; Matt, alias MJ, the Nightlight Productions dude; and myself (yeah, I'm not sure why, either). Check it out!
  15. James! How've you been? I guess I'll find out while I'm batting in your cranium with a wrench in TF2.
  16. I've lived in Orange County, California, USA for about 8 years now, but I grew up in Bellingham, Washington, USA. ...woo!
  17. In case you didn't see the the link in this forum's intro text, we've started up a group in the Steam Community for Mixnmojo people. Steam has beefed up their community features fairly recently so you can now create a SteamID (your profile on Steam) and browse your friends' with ease. You can access it from within Steam and on the web. It's pretty great, so you should check into that and check us out there. Thanks to those who have joined so far; if we get a few more joiners, it should be pretty feasible to start scheduling some matches in Team Fortress 2 and the like.
  18. For reference: In the news this week #1 A lost chapter of WONKY? In the news this week #2 A new comic On game announcements Pray do not disturbeth Ssh, it's a secret! A slight drinking problem Warning: Extremely Angry Person about to let loose some vitriol. Please stand back... Please review them all before making your decision!
  19. TF2 should be a no-brainer. I am tired of every other game in the world.
  20. Great year. 2007 saw Telltale complete its first full season of episodic games (though they got started in late 2006), and the fact that they were Sam and Max games didn't hurt, either. Also have proof that Double Fine is working on a new game, which is always nice because we love to root for them. Even though we have to wait a bit longer for A Vampyre Story, I'd still say 2007 was the best year Mojo has had in awhile, at least when it comes to good news.
  21. Nice, Bret Mogilefsky's site continues to be harvested for images. A grand fan tradition ; Also: Reality 2.0 ftw
