Re: Tips for first-timers?

BBP is right! :) I remember GK1 for the first time and being impressed by it, and being scared by Dr John's snake attacking me and the zombies in the mound. I also remember playing and re-playing the hounfour scenes, just to see what would happen if I did something stupid. :P Yes, please let us know...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Yeah, let's do it! :D As for REALLY silly and nonsensical: Leisure Suit Laura - Larry travels back in time to the time of Laura Bow. She sees his leisure suit and immediately thinks, "You know what? Trousers look like they're much comfier than a dress." She swaps her dress for a leisure suit, which ...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

I think what's always worked nicely for Larry is that it typically takes place in fictional places (Lost Wages, Nontonyt [sp?] Island, etc). Whoops.*blush* Tawm, you're right. No worries... the location can come later. (Maybe it takes place on the backlot of a studio in Hollytwig! (A parody of - ge...

Re: Hero-U

Thank you, Tawmis! Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and to the Coles, too! :) Just for that illustration, here's a Christmas quatrain: 'Twas the Night before Christmas, and all the kitchen, They rolled up their sleeves and then said "Let's all pitch in!" The apples were stewed by the fire w...

Re: Tips for first-timers?

I'll leave the DOSBox quirks/technical issues to those who know of them - I, personally, am not. :) There are only a couple of things you can do to make the game unwinnable, but they only happen towards day 10 (i.e. the final day of the game): 1. You can - potentially - make the game unwinnable by e...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Yikes. :shock: I simply wanted to use the most dangerous place that I could think of, simply to increase Larry's motivation to get out of the "Viva" contract. But yes - probably best not to use Compton. I know that one of "Weird Al" Yankovic's albums is called "Straight Outta Lynwood" because Lynwoo...

Re: Some ideas that Al Lowe probably rejected...

Luxor Larry (in French: Larry De Luxe). After a rip in the space-time continuum (don't laugh, time in the LSL series was always... flexible... after the end of LSL3), Larry travels back in time to ancient Egypt, and his face appears on the Sphinx. The ancient Egyptian men immediately assume he's a ...

Re: Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry

Hmm, I agree (unfortunately). I haven't played MCL, but I tried BOB (just because of the LSL name) - but shut it down and uninstalled it after something like 5 minutes. I've played plenty of rubbish games over the years, but BOB probably comes somewhere near the bottom (no pun intended). Impossible ...

"Another Hero-U Song"

Here's another Hero-U song. ;) Unlike the earlier one, there are no spoilers at all here - it just describes what happens if Shawn doesn't go to Hero-U... oh boy. Instant trouble, here we come! :twisted: "Another Hero-U Song" (to the tune of the "Flintstones Theme Song") (quick intro music. It's the...

Re: Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry

Well, the reviews are in - here are a couple of positive ones: A fairly short review from Destructoid.com ...and a longer one (ho ho) but more detailed, from Adventuregamers.com From the sounds of these two reviews, WDDD is nowhere near as craptastic as MCL or BOB. Have a read and see what you think...

...and then again, probably not - because I had these ideas when I got up two days ago, and they wouldn't let go until I wrote them down. ;) Hope you enjoy.
