I had all the early "SCUMM" games from LucasArts. Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, LOOM, Indiana Jones ... all for the Amiga.
I recently got a copy of the Sam & Max game for the Mac. Now I need time to play it.

Sam and Max!!! I loved that game!

That really sucks, Spanky. =/ Even with the cd, it took some work to get it to play. My boyfriend knows everything, I just sat there and gawked while he downloaded shit to make it work. This is why I <3 dorks. x3


Yorick - I was just playing Maniac Mansion on my NES the other day. That game is rediculous. I have yet to find the combination for the safe in the room above the mother's bedroom. =/

I'm pretty damned psyched about the KQ series.

I remember my youth filled immaturity and a complete lack of understanding for the english language made playing the larry game extra difficult.

I ended up just sitting around typing any euphimisms for "hard cock" into the word box.

I think "grow dick" was one of them. "strong wee wee" was another... I don't have a clue why I wanted larry's dick to be hard when he's just going up and down stairs, on hind sight.


you act like something has changed? Wink sorry, had to go for the low blow

ask me that again about 12 years ago. I'd totally know the answer.

If I recall, you don't need to download anything new to get King's Quest VII to work on most computers. All you need to do is copy a certain file off of the CD, rename it, have the shortcut target that, and make sure it loads in 256 color mode. Nothing new needed really.

I just did this a couple of weeks ago, so it's pretty fresh in my mind.

Grim Fandango is the best story/acting/atmosphere I've EVER seen in a game. A modern classic

I think Grim Fandango marks the end of adventure gaming. Incredible game. Although I hear Sam and Max is coming back...
