Just saw this on the news page and I can't find it anywhere on here so...

According to PCZone (I think it was, I'm too lazy to check) LA are planning to "revive" some of their old classics. So... sequels or re-releases? What say you?

I was told that it was PC Gamer UK. I'd like to get a scan of the article from the person who told me about it.

Hmm, PC Gamer not PC Zone. And I would really like a scanned in copy too.

I was gonna ask whether they had made the re-release Sam & Max / Day of the Tentacle easier for Win 2000 / ME etc. I hope that its a re-release of Loom cos I want the CD version. Of course, a new adventure sequel would be better...

For those who are confused, inquire within (http://www.mixnmojo.com/php/news/showfile.php?id=33&category=lucasartsnews). I think we ought to talk to Tall Guy again to see about sending some scans our way. We won't be allowed to post them on Mojo for legal reasons, but perhaps on the forums(?).

I think I may have seen that before at WorldofMI or something?

Yeeeeeees, a load of adventure games all on one DVD disk, which work on all computers, have features like talkie versions and enhanced music that's been re-made into MP3s so that you can listen to them out of the game, and it won't sound really bad because you haven't got the right DOS drivers for your sound card. And more! I want MORE!!

There were rumours this tie last year about re hashed adventured from LEC. - rescanned art at 640 x 480 and voices etc

We asked Simon Jeffery if they would ever conside rmaking those at E3, he said they would love to do that if they ever got time for something lke that.

considering all the out sourcing LEC have done, they havnt actually mentioned any game in process thats being made by them.. well maybe a few. who knows, maybe this is finally going to be a possibility.

:)

one day my excellent friends!

HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a friend who works at Toys R Us. He was looking at the industry magazines for incoming stock. On one list was Escape From Monkey Island.
"So what?" I hear you say.
It was in the Gameboy Advance Category.

No! Monkey Island 1 and 2 are like silent films. Voices would ruin them.

And Dom's voice just doesn't come close to fitting with MI1 and MI2 Guybrush... His voice works perfectly with CMI Guybrush, but that's because it's a completely different character.

Yeah, I'd rather have a new game than a re-vamped old one.
What would you prefer, Indiana Jones 4 (movie), or a remake of Raiders?

A graphical re-working of DOTT and Sam n Max would be superb

the old games don't necessarily need to be CHANGED to be re-released. all i ask for is upgraded versions of wahichever (ok, EVERY) game that are compatible with computers of those of us who like to upgrade their OS every *DECADE* or so. is that so much to ask?

Bah, just get a cruddy old 200meg hard drive, whack DOS on it, get some DOS mouse drivers, sound drivers (virtually all modern sound cards have some form of SoundBlaster 16 compatible DOS drivers), cdrom drivers, and away you go ;)

I don't ask for any new graphics,
I just want MI voices!!

I would really love to see an animated (CMI style character designs too) of MI 1 and 2 including voices and some orchestrated versions of the original music!

Personally I think that they should leave MI1 and 2 as they are, because if they are re-worked then people in the future will look on the originals as rubbish versions of these cool games released in 2002.

yeah, i mean i hate to be nostalgic and old and all of that stuff, but re-buffing MI1 and MI2 would be like remaking classic movies.

Just think of your favourit movie and imagine it being done differently with different actors, wouldn't it just seem ".....oh...." to you?

The classic status of monkey island would be spoiled i think if it were to be tinkered with

I would normally agree,
but I have just always wanted to HEAR the first to MI games.
I'd keep my original copies too,
So I wouldn't be upset if it was a disappointment.

Yes, but wouldn't it be cool if you could have loads of old adventures on ONE DISC, with HIGHER QUALITY sound and HIGHER RESOLUTION graphics, plus the game ACTUALLY WORKING on your PC!?

Common sense says YES! (Vote for me)
