I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned more. I mean, granted they provide the tools to make your character like a copywritten character. But it's right there in black and white that they don't condone such usage and they will (and do) penalize people who do such things.

Marvel is wasting time and money, of both organizations.

To play Sam and Max on the PC using current hardware go to: and search for a program called Scumm VM. It's hard for me to explain what it does, but it basically runs the game's interaction with the PC while using all the original content from the game's CD. It can be used to run all sorts of old adventure games (classics like Day of the Tentacle and Sam and Max)

Anyway, I was miserable the day I learned Full Throttle was cancelled and I'm pretty upset today now that Sam and Max have been cancelled. I miss the classic adventure games. Hopefully they'll still make another Curse of Monkey Island...

edit: guess I should have read further up and I would have seen that this was already posted. Oh well...

The other day, my father and I were out in his front yard chopping down a short/budding palm tree. I was cleaning leaves, and he was hard at work sawing through the base of the tree. Suddenly, he bolted upwards and to his surprise, my brother's little Chihuahua dog (dumb, freaking dog) had wandered over to see what all the noise was about, climbed under the fence behind the tree and emerged right next to the chainsaw. If my father hadn't have jumped back, the little Chihuahua would have met the business end of the chainsaw.

All animals are dumb.
