Yeah, could you imagine a game with the wit and savvy of Full Throttle or Day of the Tentacle or Sam 'n' Max done using a proper 3-D game engine like this one?
I think Infernal Machine is just the tip of Lucasarts' 3-D iceberg. They make the best games (and sometimes try to profit from some rushed ones), and this one is a good balance.
I'd love to see a Full Throttle sequel with the next generation of this technology. But a new, 3-D Sam 'n' Max? I'd crawl over broken Storm Troopers to buy that
