What about Twisted Pixel's stuff? I was thinking about 'Splosion Man and Wavy Tube Man Chronicles. Those are the only things that come to mind right now that haven't been mentioned yet.

I had this problem too, but it is fixed now. Like, within the last forty-five seconds or so.

Edit: Whoops! Never mind. The thingie at the top talks about Last Guardian and how it's still being worked on (not Diablo III launch day), but all the news stories are old. The Bombcast is accessible though and I can get to videos. New Releases are up to date as well. Everything else is old.

@Agrammon: I've been out of the music loop for about five years or so, but I frequently say that Radiohead is my favorite band of all time. I am a big fan of Queen and they are a completely legitimate "best band ever." Regardless of personal opinion, The Beatles are the actual best band ever.

Agreed, except I don't listen to a lot of Radiohead

That's fine. I'm a big fan of Radiohead. It's all subjective, of course, but Mega Man 2 is my favorite console game of all time. My favorite PC game of all time is Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist. Neither one of those are the greatest games of all time, but they are my favorites. That's why it's great that threads like this exist. We can all be exposed to stuff that we are unfamiliar with. Stuff like Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist.

@Agrammon: I have not heard the bands on your list that are not The Beatles or Queen, but I am interested in listening to the others now because you seem to have good taste in music.

Wait a goddamn minute. You aren't in those bands, are you?

I haven't listened to the Hotspot in ages, but I think that everyone will be able to appreciate this.

Never forget.

The only thing notable about Kenny G is the fact that he has an album called "G-Force". That amuses me for some reason.

I am really stoked about this. Space Quest was a favourite of mine as I grew up. This can only can a good thing.

You should check out Incinerations and Vohaul Strikes back - both fan made games which are surprisingly good. Incinerations is a more blockbuster type of story with some janky graphics but great set pieces, and VSB I haven't played but I've heard is pretty good.

Cheers mate, I didn't even know about those! Looks like my evening is set!

I can verify that both of these games are pretty awesome. Especially VSB.

Also, the Two Guys From Andromeda reuniting is the most exciting gaming news of the year. Jane Jensen's Kickstarter is pretty exciting. Josh Mandel working on the Leisure Suit Larry remake is super fucking exciting, but Space Quest is my jam. Space Quest III was my first one and I never looked back. I'm pretty stoked.

I think that all the people complaining about this because the "last two Leisure Suit Larry games" were horrible are amusing. Kids these days.

Also, the Kickstarter page seems to indicate that Josh Mandel will be involved so I suspect that there will be infinitely more hilarious dialogue than the original or the VGA remake. It should be money well spent.
