Trip to LucasArts 20 Jun, 2001, 10:12 / 20 comments

We were slow to get it up, but our report on the trip to LucasArts and the Ranch from a week or so ago has been uploaded. There are 2 glorious pages of report accompanied by over 50 photographs for your viewing pleasure. (side note: there wasn't a great deal of room for comments on each photo, so ALT tags will provide you with descriptions of photos.) I hope you enjoy the read.

Coming soon we have: The EMI PS2 Release party, a PS2 contest and a report on our trip to meet with Tim Schafer at Double Fine Productions.

    No, no, NO! "A Maldicao da Ilha dos Macacos" is "Curse of Monkey Island" in PORTUGUESE, not Spanish. That picture is from the Brazilian box cover. Very cool article, though. ;)

    wel.. goddamn i mean.. do i have to get every single detail right!!!??
  • Maximar on 20 Jun, 2001, 16:34…
    NO, I can't take it anymore. DIE DIE DIE!!!!

    J/k, very cool article :) What's that weird triangular DOTT box tho' ?
  • telarium on 20 Jun, 2001, 18:44…
    I actually remember those. When the CD-ROM "talkie" version of DOTT came out, they had both the normal boxes and those triangular ones. I ordered mine directly from LucasArts when it came out, hoping I'd get a triangular box... but alas, nothing but normal.
  • spaff on 20 Jun, 2001, 18:59…
    Apparently the first copule hundred or first thousand dott boxes were triangle but retailers complained a ton since they didn't stack on shelves properly. I think they lasted longer in Japan too.
  • QueZTone on 20 Jun, 2001, 19:22…
    hehe first one whines to remove them from the stack and then one whines even harder to get them back ;)
  • QueZTone on 20 Jun, 2001, 17:25…
    yeah looked very....strange in a nice way ;P just like the long rectangular box of Full Throttle i saw on a pic there =] (VollGas, hehe i remember how much it cracked me up when i first saw it in a german store with that name, germans need to translate EVERYTHING ;))
  • spaff on 20 Jun, 2001, 20:22…
    apparently "full throttle" sounds too much like something to do with being stupid in German or something hehe, atleast thats what Tim said.. and Tim is the man.
  • QueZTone on 20 Jun, 2001, 21:04…
    ahh okies (i also remember C&C Red Alert being "Rott Alarm" in germany LOL!) :) yeah Tim definitly is the man :) you're lucky to meet all of our heroes :) good thing write those articles so we can snack along a little :) muchos appreciated =]
  • spaff on 20 Jun, 2001, 21:25…

    Definitly a cool article. I love seeing those concept arts. Man wouldn't it be cool to have that MI1 Poster on your wall in your bedroom (hmmm mine is more a pc room, i use the pc in it more than i sleep in it hihi)? :D ---- And definitly nice pictures taken, hey I saw Jake wore a cool SamNMax tee, very nice. Hmm I was wondering, i would love to get my hands on lec-games related posters, are or were they ever available for outsiders of the company? (i never seen them anyway...) plz lemme know :D cheers and once more; great article =D tops e3 coverage nicely

    nice work but ... nearly nothing about the games presented at E3.( what a pity !..) oh ... what is the game named "Hey mgngng"and whose box is on the 22th picture excuse my grammatical or syntax mistakes. ..I'm french :/
  • spaff on 20 Jun, 2001, 19:01…
    nothing much about the games because we really couldn't see much. they had some of them running in the testing area but i dont know what to say other than they were there, on the main menu screen. we werent allowed to play them or anything :)
