yep, Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade is now up! And a belter it is too. Stay tuned, as we should have some exclusive interviews about the game with David Fox and Noah Falstein up soon! I'll keep you posted.

Oh, and if you want a hi-res version of that cool Indy art by Paco, here you go!

It's so sad that LucasArts are only really interested in creating more and more and more star wars games. Flying space ships, shooting things and slash em ups with light sabres.

So, so boring.

I love Loom, and I love text adventures. So naturaly, the sentence "Loom is a text-adventure." was a great hook to keep me reading.

I can't say I feel convinced, though. It seems the only "argument" the article ultimately gave to support its claim is the fact that Brian Moriarty wrote text adventures before he made Loom.

Part 5 - The Secret of Monkey Island is now up!
I'm a couple days late actually, but hey!

It's a massive 8 page feature containing various bits of trivia new and old, a review or two, many community impressions, reminiscing from the game's developers, and some unearthed historic tidbits like the original official narrative walkthrough.

Great! Been itching for this part to come up. Not surprising it's as long as it is. Only on page 4 at the moment, i'll have to read some more later on or tomorrow.

Great article, even with a funny diatribe against Ron Gilbert.

Anyone know when DeathSpank will be out?

Time for part 7: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. An excellent (as usual) six page retrospective.

There's a bit of Stargate reference in the header image, but so far nobody cared enough to point it out

These are such fun to read. Great work. And the headers are always gorgeous - hand drawn by the talented Dan Lee, of course.

Love these.

Part 8: Day of the Tentacle

I hear this is the #1 adventure game of all time? Mojo's article includes a few retrospective pieces, a review, weird historic facts, an interview with composer Peter McConnell, and someone's term paper about the historical accuracy of the series. Worth checking out, as usual!

They've still got Full Throttle, The Dig, Curse of Monkey Island, and Grim Fandango left. And Escape from Monkey Island?
