If this is like Magnum Cum Laude, please burn every copy of it. As long as Al Lowe has nothing to do with the games, please ignore, they are crap. The originals are legendary!

Twins in pic #4.. Hit it!!!! :D

LSL games have always been fun, although a bit juvenile..

Looks like someone had too much fun in pic 1.

Oh yay, so we try to bang chicks in familiar movie locations.

I hope they have a Godzilla knockoff later on, that giant lizard has been asking for it for a helluva long time.

Yeah, magna cum laude wasn't particularly good and as such i just don't have much hope for this either. Looks pretty weird though, i mean the chicks are supposed to be hot, right? The girls in this pic just look...well, rather on the young side except for bust size :P

Team 17 were never really originators, but they produced some damn fine games back in the day. Poor buggers.
Commented on 2008-01-17 16:22:28
Slabs: they made worms and then what? Worms 1 and 2 were good after that it was pure brand exploitation ;)

edit: oh, they also made Lemmings and Alien Breed. I see. But that was back in the day when you could make a commercial game with only 2 developers :P

Alien Breed, Arcade Pool, Project-X, Body Blows, Kingpin Bowling, SuperFrog, Worms. Some real classics.

Lemmings was really a DMA game, Team 17 took over the franchise though.

The developers agree with you. Well, sort of anyway :)

Which of course is a positive thing. Will probably not save this from being total crap though, but they certainly seems to have burned the concept behind Magna Cum Laude, at least that's what they keep saying.

There s an interview about the game on IGN.

The producer (was it the producer, can't remember, lazy to search) says the previous game was on the right track for what current gamers wanted, and it only bombed because it was too innovative.

He added there will be no nudity whatsoever.

Team 17 was only a contractor for the realization (Programming, Graphics and Animation), all the story and gameplay is by VU.

So basically it will suck noodle. Too innovative? I'm laughing so hard i'm about to fall clean off my chair. Well, not really. More like cringing at their obvious lacking connection to reality. No nudity? Not exactly an incentive to buy this. I'd rather play a bad game with boobs in it than just a bad game.

I've always hated the whole big heads on little bodies art style. It just looks stupid. This game is also supposedly coming out on 360 and PS3 only! You mean to tell me thats as good as it looks? Come on now.

It's probably the same or different nephew of Larry Laffer. Thank god they left Larry Laffer alone.

BTW Artie Lange from the Howard Stern Show will do the voice of Big Al, whoever Big Al is.

they would better release the old larry games on arcade - to be used with the new controller-keyboard (don't know the name) :)

He must be kidding. Magna Cum Laude "too innovate"? Some game developers these days...
