another bit of childhood gone

Disney Closes Game Publisher LucasArts I’d have to admit I haven’t played a Lucasarts game in over a decade, and couldn’t really tell you anything about their current output.

Excellent. Prepare the attack

I love the intro to X-Wing: I liked the game, but I got quite badly stuck early on and gave up. It seemed a lot harder than TIE Fighter, which I managed to finish without too many problems. I thought I might go back to this one at some stage, but that probably it isn’t […]

Some Monkey Island news you’ve probably heard already…

…but it would be remiss of us not to mention it at all. First, Telltale Games, the guys responsible for the resurrection of Sam and Max, have now turned their attention to Monkey Island with the forthcoming Tales of Monkey Island, a brand new adventure featuring Guybrush et al delivered in episodic form. Meantwhile, LucasArts […]
