It sounds illogical, maybe even more than Sam and Max' cancellation. What kinda idiot thinks of a stunt that pisses off the fans of the product the stunt's for? Not even the guy who decided to cancel Sam and Max 2 would be that stupid.

Agreed. There isn't the slightest chance it's true.

Tell me something, why is it that Marek, Remixor and Jake are all vehemently supporting the 'PR stunt theory is bogus' school of S&M2 philosophy? They are indeed the most apt people to KNOW that it IS a PR stunt. They may as well be in on the whole thing. I've got my three eyes on you folks!

Remember that I am from the Balkans and that I take for granted that there is ALWAYS a conspiracy at hand - which indeed always turns out to be true.

I'm with Marek on this one. I can't stand cheese either. The only time I ever eat it is if it is on pizza or something like that.

I'm a big fan of cheese. It has a good story and very great re-playability.

I can proudly say that I love to eat cheese.

This is the best cheese ever:

Do you know what cheese is? It's fermented curd. Does that sound good to you? Of course it doesn't. The word "cheese" was just invented by a clever marketing company to make it sound like tasty food. Insidious!

Anyway, I already have a LucasArts mousepad. It's actually had a big candle wax stain on it ever since my cat accidentally bumped into a candle sometime around Christmas. Maybe it had some deeper voodoo meaning causing everyone at the company to turn evil? (On a serious note, does anyone know how to remove a candle wax stain? It looks a bit ... wrong.)

I think this is the most off-topic post I've ever made.

I have a Sierra mousepad that I got when I sent a registration form off for one of their games. I would take a pic, but it's at home and I'm at college. It's one of those cheap, plasticky pads you wouldn't actually want to use for any length of time, unlike the sexy, gel-padded ergonomic pad I use everyday. Still, it's a nice souvenir.

You're enjoying cheese for all the wrong reasons! When you're older, you'll understand.
