You really missed him... Or did you?! 09 Mar, 2004, 15:03 / 14 comments

Captain Mystery has returned to the Scumm Bar, and has had a change of heart. If you don't remember his previous editorials, thats okay, but just remember that he has decided his sole purpose in life is to piss off fanboys with a combination of well thought out ideas, and crude name-calling. That's why it may be a bit jarring, especially to Haggis, to see his latest story is titled, "An Attempt To Contradict Myself Without Saying So: Why Jumping On The Fan Bandwagon Might Not Be Such A Bad Idea."
LEC has come under a lot of flak from the dork armies for some time now, under accusations it sold out to the Star Wars franchise. As I?ve said, I didn?t much care, because we still got promised a few original games. But your latest move is foolish in the extreme. Instead of restoring a good chunk of consumers? goodwill by releasing Sam & Max, you?ve gone in entirely the opposite direction.
Check out the whole article at the Scumm Bar. (This is for real the last post about this sort of thing. You can't go and not update about a Captain Mystery story, you know.)

    Haggis = Capt Mystery?!?

    Either way, giving up on covering Sam N Max 2 until at least next week is stupid. We've had confirmation from inside LucasArts that our messages are making waves.

    Plus the petition is STILL growing!

    LucasArts are probably waiting to see if the furvor is only short-lived or if people will REALLY care if they cancel it (although it seems obvious to me).

    Sam N Max 2 was only two months away from going gold! Remember that!

    I mean, the guy is pointless. He's not even funny. (I dodn't read his latest creation, though and never will.) Of all the pathetic people, he's the most pathetic one.

    Woohoo, I'm on the Mixnmojo homepage.

    The Idiot has returned.

    OK, I'm not talking about myself, but about Captain Mystery. *sigh*

    Sure you can. What the fuck is up with this fellow: flip-flopping on issues like he is some sort of messianic, Democratic presidential candidate?! SHeesh! ¬ ¬

    Captain Mystery = John Kerry. Best conspiracy theory EVER. ;P
  • Jake on 09 Mar, 2004, 18:38…
    Actually I think that I'm John Kerry.

    It was a metaphor folks.

    I know; I was just doing what I do best. Er...whatever that is.

    Are you threatening me?!

    I thought there was going to be no more sam n max 2 coverage? Whew, glad that was not the case! This article is a fun read.

    I always make exceptions for Captain Mystery :)
