You're getting behind, Jake. The article for Full Throttle is up.

Aww, I was really enjoying those features last night, but this morning it just brings up a load of MySQL errors

EDIT: Hoorah, it's back up!

Glad you're liking the article series. They're really fun to make.

And sorry for the errors and downtime we've been having on and off these past few days... no idea what's causing it, but we have a crack team of ninja monkeys trying to sort it all out!

The Dig is up as well now.

Thanks for the articles, guys, they were really interesting and taught me a lot of stuff I didn't know. (For one thing, I didn't realise that writing the hint-through for 'BTDT!' from the POV of one of the game characters had already been done by all the LA hint books! At least I chose the sidekick, not the lead...)

When's the CMI article going up?!

I tried searching for information on Ghost Pirates of Voojuu Island, but... there is none? Was this some kind of joke I didn't get, or is this game real? There's nothing about it on Autumn Moon Entertainment either, are they not the developers?

That was my fault. Only a mod can edit threads this old. Two in a month? Mojo, what kind of scheduling is that?!

It's real, and Autumn Moon is the developer. The news was exclusive to a German print magazine, so the rest of us need to wait. Not much longer, though (read: next week at E3).

I'd just like to say that these are excellent and I really appreciate the effort that goes into them. These are much more informative than the somewhat disappointing coverage in the Rogue Leaders book.

Seems like all the Monkey Island business going on has delayed the series, but it's back.



Part 13: Grim Fandango is up!

This is a mega feature, including a couple essays on the world and architecture of Grim, and an interview with Tim Schafer about the game.

That's a good question. I wonder if they're going to try Hell on Wheels and Freelance Police...

Part 14: Escape From Monkey Island is up!

Lots of history and opinions, and an interview with Mike Stemmle!

Also beautiful and interesting feature art, as usual.

Wow alot of people really don't like The Dig. I thought that it was a wonderful game maybe not completely logical at times but what's so logical about being on an alien world?

Any plans to carry this brillo series on somehow, or is this the final piece?

I don't know if it's the site, my connection or my PC but it's killing my computer to open a new page there. Hence I have only been able to read a couple pages.

Also, having not really read the things before, I can't now read the Grim Fandango

Anyways, a really nice review of the game, some great info and some fun new trivia to me (especially the Murrayball part, I'll have to try that some time ) - all adding to a great compilation

(Edit): Well, what do you know, works like a charm now. Guess I'll have to do some readin'
