Re: Police Quest at Science World

I know I shouldn't nitpick, as it's wonderful whenever Sierra gets attention like this, but I look at that blown-up screenshot and all I can think is "fix the aspect ratio!"

I'd rather pay once up front and never have to deal with micro-transactions or ads, but apparently I'm in the minority there.
Then I must be in the same minority.
Ditto.

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

Yes, that is true. I don't wish any ill-will on the hardworking employees who, in all likelihood, are criminally underappreciated. But it's hard to root for corporate greed of such magnitude. Spare the employees, but do something about the company culture. Maybe a shakeup in CEOs would turn things a...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

And these are the same fat cats that send cease and desist orders when Al Lowe's source code turns up, or else block patches containing the music for a rarer than rare FM-Towns port that they have no intention of rereleasing themselves. I say let 'em fold!

Re: Sierra Presents...

Laugh Quest (comedy) - Play a vaudevillian touring the country during the roaring 20s, stopping at every two-bit club in America on your quest to hit it big. Customize the act; keep the bits that earn big laughs and ditch the ones that bore. But remember, life is about the journey, not the destinati...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

Whenever I listen to Quest for Glory music, I stage the scenes cinematically in my head. I know an adaptation would be limited in terms of character class, but so much of those stories would make great films if done correctly (and yes, that is a big if!).

Re: Sierra: The Movie

The problem I have nowadays is that they're shoving the whole diversity crusade down our throats every chance they get. In your face. On purpose. Gender-bending here, race-swapping there. All over the road. Like, it's not because the actors are any better suited or not. That's not what it's about. ...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

Executive meddling would no doubt be an issue, and I agree that turning beloved properties into political mouthpieces is ill advised. Let's assume for hypothetical purposes, however, that the properties wind up in the hands of a producer who respects them and isn't going to make changes just for the...

Sierra: The Movie

Which Sierra games do you think could potentially lend themselves to film and/or TV adaptations? Obviously a great deal of creative liberties would need to be taken, and no adaptation could ever fully capture the gaming experience, but which ones do you feel are strong enough to work in another medi...

Split from Non-Sierra Installers and Patches

The more mature SVM devs need to take charge and stop the negative aspects of their public interactions. Some new posters get upset with VOGONS over "abandonware" but this is usually just a referral to the abandonware sites for help, not the public shaming that SVM does. The public shaming aspect i...

Re: Non-Sierra Installers and Patches

Had no idea about some of the issues with ScummVM. I know some people here didn't like it, but I didn't quite understand why. I made it my goal to try to get everything to work in a single version of DOSBox. I even got Windows 3.11 working so I could get the better art in KQ6. But there are a few g...

Re: Non-Sierra Installers and Patches

Yeah, I love NRS's work and he's been an asset to the community. I truly respect his past efforts. but he needs to grow up. He acts like a 2 year old. He first deleted his initial posts and kept his threads, but then when someone else replied to each thread with the missing information and links (b...
