Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Half Priced Books stores have been amazing for me as far as old software goes. I picked up Grim Fandango at one of those for about a buck fifty. I think it was further discounted as a post-holiday sale, too.

    I'm kinda hoping the engine for Grim Fandango and that last Monkey Island game get included in some future version of SCUMMVM. If it doesn't run on a DS port, though, I'd be sad.

    Probably not, the DS only has 4 MB of RAM.

    this game sucks

    fuck you, faggot

    the graphics are awful and there isn't any action and you wander around for like ten hours and then you find a ham and then you wander around for ten hours using the ham on everything you see and then you read a walkthrough and you have to push the ham through a mailslot at precisely 4:15 in the afternoon while wearing a polo jersey but not a bowler but it will only advance the plot if you've already used the broken toaster on uncle fran's corns

    I've seen a little of the game. Bit upset that it's in 3D really.

    The swamp bit was pretty fantastic though.

    I really enjoyed it. Got it for Christmas the year it was released and by Boxing Day I'd finished it.

    I think I did something wrong with Monkey Kombat though -- I ended up with an entire A3 page of directions for the different stances and what works against what.

    The one about the fucking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego. They're all made of fucking lego.

    Sounds about right. I drew a diagram of all the stances, which stance beats which, and what you say to change from stance A to stance B.

    Manny whips out his gun and confronts Hector in a scene too brilliant to describe here.
    I love how the humour pervades the technical design description

    I played this when I was about 10 or so, so my mind is really foggy. I remember getting to a point where the chick that Manny wanted to bone was caught in a safe and the thing for entering combos was broken. I think it was about 3/4 of the way through the game. My copy is sitting on the shelp, asking to be played.

    yeah, the lockpick minigame is really annoying if you don't have a gamepad

    I lent this to a friend aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago and he still hasn't played it.

    But he hasn't lost it, either. Which is cool, I guess.
