Classic Sierra games re-released

Headline stolen directly from Joystiq.  I don’t have any more information than what is in the Joystiq article, but you can bet I’ll be watching for these.  Full article follows.  Hit the article for links to Amazon listings of these compilations.

Point and click adventure gamers rejoice! If you’ve been struggling to (legally) complete your collection of Sierra classics, Vivendi Universal is finally ready to give you just such a chance. They are releasing “compilations” of King’s Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, and Leisure Suit Larry, available March 30th through Amazon, Target, and who knows where else.

There is almost no other information about the compilations, except that they run on Windows XP. Have they been ported or are they running through an emulation layer like Sarien? Does the compilation include all the games in the respective series? At $20 each, this could be a great way to build that collection. Then they’ll just need to release Gabriel Knight and Quest for Glory… then maybe LucasArts will get in on it…

A fashion don’t tip

Trey Stone and Matt Parker

Normally, I wouldn’t even want to admit looking at an Academy Awards fashion page of do and don’t tips, but I couldn’t pass this one up. I remember this event. I remember everyone talking about it. What really makes this worth pointing out is the caption for the picture:

DON’T… let sunglasses ruin an otherwise elegant outfit.
(Matt Stone & Trey Parker in 2000)

And here is the original dress that set up the above picture.
