LEC July 5th Celebration 05 Jul, 2002, 17:33 / 8 comments

Despite the American holiday this week, LucasArts.com has been updated with some new goodies. First up on the menu this evening are five new screenshots from the upcoming PS2, XBox, and PC title, Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.

For seconds, LucasArts has put up its first 20th Anniversary merchandise at the company store. No, it's not a key ring. It's a coffee mug for $12.95! Of course, since LucasArts doesn't ship internationally, those of you living outside the US and Canada may be out of luck.

And finally, there's a new poll that I'm sure you all will want to take part in. The new poll asks which original classic LEC game is your personal favorite. Who knows, maybe now Zak McKracken will finally get the attention he deserves!

    Hey, why is Zak in last place at Lucasart's latest poll?? C'mon people, vote for this game. It's one of the best adventures ever made. Sure Grim Fandango is great, so is MI & Full Throttle. But Full Thorttle is already getting a sequel, MI will get one (5th that is) eventually. I'd like to see sequel to Zak, and i know i'm not the only one. Vote for Zak people!!!

    Matt, have you heard anything about Lucasarts possibly shipping worldwide soon...?

    It's not that I've heard a rumour but I wouldn't mind getting some things that they have in their shop... I guess it's so that people with American consoles aren't able to buy games off them. Ah well...

    The mug is OK I guess BUT the poster idea should definitely be taken up as they could obviously do something amazing with the great art staff they have working there. Film-style posters would be kewl, or just giant box art posters... A man can dream, a man can dream... :-)

    no, i haven't heard something like that but there are really some things i would like to buy ...

    i guess you could be right with that US-console-theory... but then they should be able to get some PC games to europe ... or at least a coffee mug. i hope there are no compatibility problems when you try to drink european PAL coffee from a code 1 NTSC Mug :)

    wow - a coffee mug... (i can feel the CREATIVE IMPLULSE) *!?$

    what about special posters for each game (also the classics) with the gamebox picture (without gamebox text) and a famous quote .... or something like that.

    Well, I'm a sucker, and I'm not afraid to admit it. I bought the mug. :)

    hey that's ok, maybe i would have bought it, too ... but they just don't sell the mugs to europeans. :)

    I don't mind the coffee mug, but the poster idea is great. I'd definitely buy a large high quality print of the DOTT box artwork, or a real film noir looking Grim Fandango poster.
