Connor is a bigger loser than Larry.  More people like Larry than Connor.  I wonder how many times Connor could score with women?  A lot less than Larry for sure.

Connor may be the greater loser, but only because he's so bad at it, while Larry is the king of losers and masters his job with brilliance!!!

Long live Larry!!!

True.  At least Larry is the pro at it.  It would be nice if Sierra realized that there is an adventure fan base out there.

sorry to interrupt your vivid discussion. just wanted to announce that we have gained access to the cover image of the december issue of the Computer game Magazine. It shows Larry and really nice girls in a college environment and it looks seems fun!!! We may hope that Vivendi is more or less being true to adventure games after all, though we don't know any details yet. Check out the detailed description on www.LarryLives.com .

lol, College girls!  Larry's so old too!!

From the cover, it looks like it will be cartoony (as opposed to 3D which was what Al Lowe was going for at the time).  As long as it's a slight improvement over LSL7's graphics, I'm happy.

Well then.  It seems Sierra is making Larry 8.  Let's just hope they do it right(NO PUN INTENDED!  ).

I know that it is generally considered a sin to say this, but I must admit that I am seriously intrigued by the college scenario   and I think Sierra actually did a good job there. We can say nothing about the game itself yet, but I sure like the setting!!

The setting is only a minor bit.  The humor is the major beef of the game.  I hope I won't have to ask, where's the beef?

Then maybe they should have said it's Larry Laffer himself and call the game LSL0  :P

Yeah, would be nicer. But then, maybe Larry the original has always been 2d, and somehow his nephew got born into a 3d world... ;)

Either that, or Larry II might be less of a deadbeat than his uncle for all we know...

Larry Laffer could always make a cameo in the game.
You mean like 'Zirkon Jim Laffer' in FPFP? ;D

I found a trailer :O

Larry Trailer

I erm...  Don't really have much of an opinion, so I'll just back out quietly.  They're releasing it on the GameCube...

Larry on GameCube? with action & fighting?  :o
I'm not a big Larry fan myself, but I hope this wouldn't be another MOE  :(

btw - can you fix the above link?

Can't help but think what rating it's going to get, by watching that trailer.

BTW, Storm, I don't think there's going to be much fighting.

Besides, the attached image is supposed to be a screenshot from LSL8, but I see a strong resemblance to a scene in LSL6.
Sorry for the small size, JustAdventure didn't have it any larger. :-[

The press release sure does not make me want to go and buy it strange away when it's released (if it gets released), not even if Al gets hired on the project. Why? Well, there's not much left he can still alter can he? The story's probably all done, so my current take on LSL8 does not look too good/positive. :-\

I don't know about the resemblance, but was LSL6 3D as well?  :-\
What's really strange about that screenshot is that all the girls in the showers are wearing towels  :P

There is something in the trailer that looks like fighting. What else do you do on GameCube?  ???

Um... there are adventures, puzzles, and racing games for the Gamecube! Not just fighting games. Though admittedly adventures for the gamecube are very few and far between. And a lot of them end up having action thrown in.
