I can't exactly say I'm enthusiastic about this either, despite the fact that I love the Larry games. I thought the Larry 1 remake was already going strong and would hopefully be released this year....

It's probably the correct move for developers to jump on the Kickstarter bandwagon ASAP. It's quite possible that donator fatigue will set in and that the fad will fizzle out. Get that money while...

Is Blazing Dragons worth playing?

Maniac Mansion is definitely worth playing on the NES - for me, the music makes it the definitive version. There are probably still most of the same dead ends...

I say I don't like them, yet something intrigues me enough about their games that I've played most of them and always keep an eye on what they're up to.

I'm playing the first one now, on case 3 I think (the samurai one).

Do we count every episode in an episodic series as a separate game? I would say yes.

Did you finish San Andreas? A lot of people complain about the "Boyz n the Hood" feel, but it's only like that for the first few hours of the game.

Black & White was absurdly overrated. Years later, GameSpy and IGN admitted as much.

Always "Play Online", and wait for people near the entrance if they don't put you with anybody right away.

Looked at a screen shot and you appear to be right. So either my memory fails me or they looked more "blobby" on the monitor size I played it on. I think I do have beef though in that I have no...

Yea, I agree with the last poster that the endings of the first two games are sloppy, so I disagree with OP on that.

I replayed the game last year, for the first time in about 15 years. Some of...

The PSN outage must suck for the Red Johnson's Chronicles guys. What did they have, a few hours worth of sales? Hopefully Sony will give them some free publicity when they come back.
