    Science?! Ha! More like Astronomy! This game, 'Psychonauts' as you call it, has about as much to do with science as this post has to do with reality!! And furthermore, I REALLY dislike Astronomy. So much that folk always say to me, "Melissa Bam: N'How come y'don't like th'stronomy?!"

    TO which I never retort: "Daggers and Diamonds, my favorite episode of The LazerTag Gang!"

    ASTRONOMY HAS LOTS DO WITH PHYSICS

    PHYSICS IS SCIENCE

    Get over yourself, Blegvad. No one likes a dead person that won't sit still.

    "Following"? They make it sound like Day of the Tentacle just came out last year or something.

    No, they make it sound like Day of the Tentacle has yet to come out. I can't stand it when people act like games don't exist when they know for three FACTS that they do.

    Day of the Tentacle was released prior to Psychonauts, Science Digest! Get that through your thick scientist skulls! And quit making deadly viruses!

    "when they know for three FACTS that they do."
    I love it. I'm gonna start using that expression all the time.

    It was the last "comedy" game out of Tim Schafer, though, right?

    Full Throttle and Grim were pure slapstick gold.

    That part where Ripburger beat Corley to death with a cane... comic brilliance!
  • matt on 13 Jul, 2002, 04:23…
