Thumbs down New Double Fine Game Revealed...

Well...I'm officially disappointed, and I'm actually mad enough that I don't want to talk about it tonight...so here you go...just read it off Gamespot.

Here...

Edit:
If this is their next game (which it's possible it's not)...then I'm going to be mad...I'm still holding out hope for a better choice though.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

I was worried that Double Fine was going to make the video game version of Kung Fu Panda. It could be good, I'd give it a chance at least.

While I'm sure nobody's surprised it's not Psychonauts 2, I wouldn't worry too much based on the description.

Not being able to easily sum up Psychonauts in a cool-sounding way and it looking a bit quirky is unfortunately why Psychonauts was tragically ignored by a lot of the gaming community, who assumed from a quick glance it wasn't for them despite very few people who've actually played it not loving it.

I recommend waiting and seeing. I've been playing games from Tim since 1989, ranging from biker adventure game Full Throttle to the supremely slick Grim Fandango, and I've not been disappointed yet.

I liked that one game Tim did where an evil tentacle took over the world. (Not Psychonauts.)

Day of the Tentacle.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Itchy, not knowing the name of that game might or might not mean we might or might not put an initiation rite upon you. Or not. However. I think Thrik is right.

I am dissapointed and mildly excited at the same time. It's nice to finally get some sort of news on what the heck they have been working on.

Of course I would have murdered someone in front of their own mama for it to be P-nauts 2. But we all sort of new that it wasn't going to happen.

*sigh* I'm not exactly a huge fan of Jack Black or how this game sounds at the moment. But since it's Double-Fine, I might give it a shot.

*sniff*

Angry WHY must DF torture us like this?

Okay, let's see now: The story about the Jack Black game was actually a lie, and DF's current project is actually "Zak McKracken 2" for the PSP? Is that the truth, or is Schafer putting us on again? And what IS Zak McKracken, anyway?

What I'd like to know is WHY THE HELL Schafer and DF are being so secretive and duplicitous with their current project. After all, when Psychonauts was still in production DF didn't hesitate to give out sneak peeks at that game. Do the DF crew think that now that they've captured our attention with Psychonauts, they can let us dangle and lead us by the noses with every teensy bit of information (true or false) that they give out?

I'm REALLY getting annoyed with them. Come ON, DF! Hey, Schafer, if you don't quit talking out of both sides of your mouth, we may be forced to tie you up and make you watch both Baby Geniuses movies repeatedly until you give us a straight answer!

Dude, I so knew the title of the game. I made a purple tentacle figurine for sculpture last year.

Did you make Purple that blurry on purpose? Or were you nipping on grandma's "soda" again?

Blame cell phone quality pictures. And that soda is Italian, and let me tell you, it is good.

Yay, a tentacle game! So the object is to create enough ink to score awesome Kracken-like powers (ala Pirates of the Carribean) to bring down ships while keeping self from turning into calamari.

No dude, if it's a tentacle game, the only logical explanation is that it is a rape simulator.

Not going to say what I thought that said at first glance, but I'm sure you can figure it out.

Hey, do you think Earthworm Jim is anatomically correct? Because earthworms are supposed to be hermaphrodites and all...

But the creator of Earthworm Jim also made Sockbaby and Metallus met him and said he was a huge jerk!

No it was that guy I met the other day. He said: "Ray, I am the brother of the son of my sister, but does that arrive at any qualified conclusion about the character? - No."

Wouldn't that mean the father of the brother and sister would've had to have had relations with the sister?
