There was a time I could recite this game from memory and while that time is past (I actually found some dialogue while playing that I hadn't seen before, yay!) I still love it up and down the block. This was one of the cornerstones of a young sqrl's personality, and ... y'know, while it hasn't aged so well ("laugh at the freak" humor doesn't, nor do some of the casual one-off lines, and the game's largely an all-guy sausagefest) it still FEELS funny deep in my heart.

It's really, really late-nineties take-nothing-seriously comedy though. I'm gonna outgrow that entirely someday, aren't I?

So I'm AWARE of the flaws in it, and I love it anyway. I badly needed some mental comfort food, so I loaded this up again.

Plus it "counts" as new because I haven't played it since I started recordkeeping.

So do all the other Lucasgames.

Expect to see THOSE float by at some point now that I've gotten MT-32 emulation working. Fancy-ass MIDI!

Highway surfing was definitely one of those ways to contemplate what to do next in the game. Although we never could get past level 10.

Pounded in the MIDI by my own fancy.

Wait.

I keep this installed on my DS just so I can play Car Bomb whenever I like.

Also with a save just before the end, because trees.

That was a classic game! Did you play the early Telltale Sam & Max episodic adventures? Before they turned to a purveyor of QTE sequences and "cinematic" narrative.

It'd be nice to watch them again, maybe carve a place for them in my memories that isn't marred by associations to unpleasant people.

Yay, more Sam & Max nostalgia ahead then. ^.^

I got this from my uncle - like all the LucasArts games, it was fantastic :) By fumbling my way through it, I was able to get up to Conroy Bumpus's mansion, which I think is about halfway through even though it feels like it's very near the end. I never worked out that I had to use the grabbers on the books in the bedroom, and that stuck me until years later when the Internet was invented and I could look up a guide!
