First off, a word of warning to all: If you own an Epson inkjet printer, and your town is experiencing a ton of short storm-caused blackouts... turn off the printer
. The power will
inevitably switch on and off at 4 in the morning and your Epson will
go through its 15 minute (noisy as Hell) warmup cycle.
But whatever. If you're going to be woken up at 4 AM, you'd hope to at least be greeted with some juicy Lucas dirt!
And now... the real news... or, as the case may be, a rumor that is, more likely than not, entirely true. Hot off the presses at Adventure Gamers
is the scoop that LucasArts is in the process of making the "The Entertainment Pack," a collection of SCUMM (and GRIME) classics including Windows 95/98/Me/2K/XP compatible versions of Sam & Max Hit The Road, Full Throttle, The Dig, and Grim Fandango
Yes, a pretty exciting rumor, especially for those who are scared to death of ScummVM
. Really, though, the best guess going around is that The Entertainment Pack
was mainly made to serve as a sequel primer, to bring new gamers up to date on the classics before they go out and buy Full Throttle 2, Sam & Max 2, et cetera
Wacky things are afoot for sure. Goodnight!Update:
Adventure Gamers points out that the pack has shown up somewhere outside of rumors
. Well, there it is. Wonder if it's UK/Europe only?
