I think we can guess what the interface will be.  They have gone as far as to saying it isn't a point and click game, and then they backtracked a little from there.  The game is being made for consoles.  That much is easy to tell.  I am guessing because of the controller, you will  move easily with analog stick (translated to a keyboard/mouse could be telltale style or traditional keyboard movement) and then each button will dictate some kind of action.  I am guessing there will be one primary action but no way to know for sure.  I think it will feel a lot like grim fandango.  The issue becomes when they translate the console controls to keyboards, they don't tend to work as well.  The new grim fandango suffered quite a bit when they added the point and click interface as you missed quite a bit of things due to the game mechanics having been designed for something else.  The subtle head turns in grim fandango worked extremely well with tank controls but were completely lost in point and click which led to many puzzles being difficult to solve (burning the beavers, moving the ashtray, to name a couple).  I experienced this first hand as I never played the original version of the game.  I had to consult a walkthrough even though I knew the solution, and in the case of the beavers, I still had difficulty completing the puzzle even after seeing it done on a youtube video.  Long story short, I will buy it for my xbox as I would rather play it as it was designed to be played.

Nights like those are perfect for...

NOTHING.  Sleep is wonderful and those nights are the worst.  Sorry about the lack of sleep Steve.  Feel better buddy.

To be honest, I don't like the look of that at all.  I just went back and played the original with my son.  There is little need for a remake.  If anything, to remake it as Point and click while keeping the original art (like was done with The Black Cauldron) would be cool.

Is there a use for roehm.dat?

It gets created to import your character and stats into a possible sequel if we are able to make one.  :)

There are a couple other places to get extra blys that I don't think anyone has found
  Little Easter eggs with some bonus coins.

My most recent are grim fandango, granted it was for the point and click interface that I bought it.  The other most recent was kq8 because I didn't want to screw around with getting it to work in my machine

I agree that there are some real idiots in the republican party.  But it goes both ways.  That's all I am saying.

The biggest problem that I have with the current US government is that with all the redistricting, it is impossible for a middle of the road candidate to win their own primary.  If you aren't extreme to one side or the other, you wont win a primary.  Then in the general elections, there are no candidates that could actually make any bipartisan efforts.  We are left with 2 extremes that say that passing bills that are mostly split down party lines as bipartisan.  To me, a bipartisan effort would be one where e found the middle ground that no one is 100% happy with, but everyone can live with it, and it could be supported by all.  But the way things are now, that will never happen because those who would have that approach cannot win a primary let alone be elected.

Nope.  Not at all.

but it certainly seems to be in the case of the 200 or so people to whom I am connected via Facebook.  ;)

That's one of your problems right there.  Anyone who uses social media as a political forum...I'll leave it at that.  :)

I just hate getting lumped into a group when it comes to politics.  I am a registered republican, but see my self more as a fiscal conservative and social liberal.  At the end of the day, the fiscal side wins.

I hear a lot of the "greatest country on earth" shit from some of my more under-informed conservative relatives, and it makes my head spin.  Realism, that's all I ask from people.

Don't make this into a conservative thing.  It may be that more conservatives are vocal, but there are liberals in the same camp.  It is like you said, an "under-informed" thing, but not a conservative one.

Adventure Gamers has a pretty extensive preview/interview article up as of yesterday.

LINK please.

(I'm just absolutely too lazy to be bothered to search for it...)

(FULL DISCLOSURE: Even then, I might not even read it.)

Here you go

Not enough cock-sucking in this thread.  If you don't watch it, I'm going to perma-ban all of you.  This is your only warning.

Lambonius...Rarely has our moderating team encountered a forumite as consistently unpleasant as you, and you've burned through far more chances than you deserved.

Bt, my freaking Urologist should have known.  Why it took migraine headaches to get to the bottom of my kidney stone recurrence beats the heck out of me.  But yes, I have an appointment today to look at the parathyroid scans I got done last week and hopefully we will be able to schedule surgery.

I think you are correct there except for the fact that the raw numbers indicate how well known a specific title may be.  If anything KQ is a full a cup as apposed to "a big, milk-heavy teat hanging down from on high."
