If AGD ever decided to do a KQIV remake, I wonder if they'd beat my group to the punch.  I mean, we have made a *little* progress lately, but it's been difficult without Karen's skills.   :'(

But, to quote one Lenny Kravitz:

"So many tears we've cried, so much pain inside
but baby, it ain't over till it's over"

I don't think you have to worry about AGD. They've said that now that they've gone commercial, there will be no more free remakes. That line of thinking may be subject to change, but probably not for years and years down the line. Of course, none of us knew about KQ3 Redux until a couple months before its release, so there's no stopping them from pulling that again. A poll on their forums regarding what remake they should do next was overwhelmingly in favor of KQ4. IIRC, the second place went to making a VGA remake of Mask of Eternity that made it more King's Quest-like.

Speaking of AGDI, is Mage's Initiation out yet or still in development?

Still in development. I hope it'll be released this year. :)

I think the only way it could get worse is to have either Larry outright rape a girl just to get his rocks off.

Already happened >_>

Well ok, it was his son who did it... but still.

What? When did Laffer have a baby?

Unless you're talking about Larry Lovage, which I could have sworn that was his nephew. I think?

Actually, no, I thought of something even worse. Rape, then cruelly murders her with no remorse at what he's done because she doesn't return his affections. And violating the corpse after that.

Somebody's been watching too many sexploitation movies.

I can almost guarantee that Larry Lovage raping a girl happened in Box Office Bust. Obviously, the murder fantasy GrahamRocks came up with didn't happen in any of the games, and is more or less something that would've happened--whether onscreen or alluded to--in Cognition.

Yeah, I never played the newer ones and reading that... it really makes me glad I didn't.

Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust has a 25/100 on Metacritic. That's...pretty bad.

Although, for comparison, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing has an 8/100, which makes it objectively the worst video game in history. If The Last of Us is gaming's Citizen Kane, then Big Rigs is gaming's Plan 9 From Outer Space.

How about we not so much play the 'hey what's worse than [horrifying thing]' game.

Yeah while I'd love to fill in this group about the exact scene of horrificness in the Leisure suit Larry series.

I don't quite thing it matches the tone of this board...

Which means, the next topic of discussion should be: King's Quest VI, best game ever or best game ever?

I could certainly agree that it was the best *King's Quest* game ever.  At least so far.

Oh I was just joking in that regard. I have no favorite game. If I did it'd probably an RPG or a Strategy game. Maybe something along the lines of Master of Orion 2, Gothic 2 or something.

It's bizarre how GrahamRocks is the one who got in trouble this time and not me. It's always me. I need to one-up her...but how?

I know...My Little Pony DeviantART pages!
