Get Leisure Suit Larry 5 for Free

IndieGala continues to celebrate a life of leisure, now offering a giveaway of Leisure Suit Larry 5 – Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work (thanks Ant). The previous promotions with free copies of Leisure Suit Larry 1 & 2 and Leisure Suit Larry 3 are still in effect. If you're wondering why Leisure Suit Larry 4 doesn't get the free treatment, it's because if doesn't actually exist. Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies was never released, and the title is based on a story about recreating its lost source code. It's not clear if it was actually lost, cancelled, or was always just an elaborate in-joke, but to this day it remains as missing as its titular floppies. Here's a description of Leisure Suit Larry 5:
Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work! is (despite the number) the fourth game in Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry series. The middle-aged would-be-womanizer Larry Laffer fell off a boat during a cruise and sustained amnesia, forgetting how he and his sweetheart Patti got separated, how Larry got a job in LA, how Patti got a job with the FBI, and what happened in (the never released) Larry 4. Now Larry and Patti are working independently on two cases that are connected to each other, even though the heroes aren't aware of that. Larry's new bosses are involved in shady business, while Patti agrees to take a break from her career as a performing pianist and become an undercover agent. Will the two be together ever again?

Death Stranding 2 Negotiations?

In an interview on AdroCinema, actor Norman Reedus seems to reveal that negotiations are underway for Death Stranding 2. As noted on VGC, this is not the first time Reedus has tried to steal Geoff Keighley's thunder, having previously spilled some beans in a WIRED video. Here's a machine translation of a Portuguese report on IGN Brasil:
"I think we're doing a second Death Stranding ," Reedus told reporter Vitória Pratini from AdoroCinema , IGN Brasil 's partner site . “ [The game] is in negotiations right now. So… Yay!”, celebrated the actor, in front of the excitement of the journalists present at the roundtable about the 11th season of The Walking Dead.

Out of the Blue

Wow, so it's the last weekend in August already? This definitely feels like another lost summer for me, but I'm guessing a lot of people feel that way even without car crashes and injuries to complicate things. So next weekend is labor day and a few days later is the kickoff of the NFL season. So the summer may continue for a few more weeks here in the northern hemisphere, but there's a lot of autumn coming up on us quite rapidly. Where did I put that sweatshirt?

Ominous Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
