Anyone know the price of a flight like that? That is pretty amazing.
Currently just over $1,000 according to Travelocity for Bangkok to Hong Kong -- one month in advance.

That actually doesn't seem that bad......

Up to 500K, with 44 days to go. Doing a lot better than I hoped. Hope they make it and blow past their goal!

Grim Fandango, Outlaws, Jedi Academy, Xwing vs. Tie Fighter, Full Throttle, Day of the Testicle, et al. All stuff they can could be capitalizing on but they insist on putting out complete and utter shite.

That would be Day Of The Tentacle.

Day of the Testicle is what you do on Sunday Afternoon.

Dear LucasArts let Tim make another Grim Fandango!

That vid was pretty awesome.

I wouldn't mind another Grim Fandango (or another Full Throttle either) but I really hope Planetary Annihilation gets kickstarted.

I'm hoping that Raiders rerelease gets shown here...sounds awesome.

Saw Duran Duran last night, and was really surprised how well they've hung in there. Simon's voice sound just as good now as it did 30 years ago.


Duran Duran is touring??? Please, please tell me now. Is there something I should know?

I seriously wonder WTF goes on over at Lucasarts these days. Are they working on anything else other than 1313? They have so many awesome properties, and they just let them sit in a vault. It's so sad...

If they redid Maniac Mansion (with an option to toggle back to the original graphics like the MI remake) and tossed it on steam for $15-$20, I'd pick it up in a second.

iPhone Ebay auction going for $10000

If someone buys that I want a ticket off this planet. "Vintage" my ass, it's a 5 year old mass produced piece of electronics.
