View Full Version : Is LucasArts Really Hearing Us?

I don't think so. And I'm just about sick of listening to people say that we shouldn't make waves with LA on their forums. I think the alternative that we keep hearing (sending e-mail to pr@lucasarts.com) is pure BS. And as impressive as the numbers on the petition are, they don't amount to much in the eyes of LA as they've proven to us by not even responding to our rallying cry for the release of Freelance Police.

If you want to shake 'em up, mail them a letter via snail mail. That's what will get their attention. The only reason you filter all your fan criticism to one e-mail address? Easy to ignore and even easier to delete!

Yeah, they're hearing us, but are they listening to us? Their inaction says NO! :mad:

Ronda Scott promised us that the management is being informed of the number and sentiment of the mail they're getting. Some guy also sent the petition to them. I think Ronda is pretty trustworthy since she's the one who gave us that nice picture of Sam and Max's office. ;)

Hearing and complying are completely different things. Don't be a bastard about it.

This "Ronda" is an imposter. The real Ronda was murdered by LucasArts suits. They're gonna kill us all, mark my words!

My hope has pretty much reached the negligible amounts, it's depressing...

I know the people reading these posts are die hards, so if we don't keep on asking for the game, who will? A snail mail letter wouldn't hurt either. I haven't send one yet, have you?

I sent a letter out on Saturday. Why has no one else sent snail mail!?

Also, was the petition ever mailed? I never heard back from the guy on that.

I don't know how to send snail mail. And, Sam&max4ever, despite your language, I must agree that Lucasarts has proven that they don't care about the fans any more. Evidence is backed up with their immediate reaction to all this fan complaining, by releasing a rotten war game that nobody will play. Barf.

I still haven't lost hope for Sam and Max 2. I went to the store today and hid Star Wars: Galaxies behind one of the Adventure Company games. Ironic.

Insert "Mike Nelson" (the person to whom your letters should be addressed) to the top.

Don't know how to send snail mail? Open a word processor such as Open Office -- www.openoffice.org -- or (ick) Microsoft Word, compose your letter, print it out, put it in an envelope, write the above address on the envelope, write your home address in the upper left corner of the envelope, affix proper postage (in the US, one $0.37 stamp should suffice), seal the envelope, put it into a place where a Post Office employee will pick it up to be sorted and delivered.

Also, see http://forums.adventuregamers.com/showthread.php?t=2399 for a sample letter (it's not the latest revision) and look further down in that topic to see where I offered up URLs for sample business letter formats, should you wish to make your letter look more professional.

The letter that actually went out (with my personal identification removed) can be seen at

Oh man, I'm such an idiot. Sorry, nobody told me "snail mail" is an internet term for "postal letter." I haven't been around that long. :D

So, yes, I have sent some snail mail. :)

I bet Lucas Arts is already talking to their attorneys about turning this cancellation into a tax write-off. They probably think it'll save them more money than finishing and releasing the game would. So I'm not keeping my hopes up :(

I sent LucasArts an E-Mail full of insults MI-Style!

Never got a response though.

I would have loved to hear how they felt about having their own insults used against them!

Sending insults of any kind is gonna have the oppisite of the desired outcome.

They're not hearing us! They just said that to give us false hope. Damn you LucasArts. **** you to hell. :mad:

One of us needs to run up in Mike Nelson's office with a bomb of some sort. I think it would get a smidge more attention. Plus hey, it would be fun. :monkbomb:

Death threats and the like are not funny. It makes you look rediculous, especially when the FBI finds out.

The FBI is serious as heck about bomb threats. They can now put a tap on your line for saying that.


Our government has a lot more powers than you can even imagine, just research FEMA. It's an ACTUAL government association that can suspend all of our constitutional and human rights anytime they want to.


So don't look past the fact that the FBI can find out who you are and do something about it.

I can see the headline now. "Unknown assailant terrorizes LucasArts HQ. Places a DVD copy of Gigli on Director's desk."

Im never giving up hope, as foolish as it may seem. I just cant see me in one month not playing a fresh ass sam and max game. If this dream of mine by some chance dies... I just dont know what ill do.

I garuntee you won't be doing it in one month. Even if they did by some random decision uncancel it, it would take longer than that to complete and get it on the shelves.

They claim that they are, but I am sure that those scurvy dogs are not listening to a single word we say.

I seriously doubt it. A game doesn't become uncanceled all of a sudden. Thats just not how it works these days.
