One of Al's only stipulations was not to press too much on subjects that were already covered elsewhere, which is more than understandable. LSL4's story has already been detailed in depth, so I figured it wouldn't be necessary. Same thing with stuff like Sam Suede and Clinton game
The cover for Magna Cum Laude is some kind of photoshop job or something as it not only has both the M+ and AO ratings, but also says PAL in the upper right. Might wanna change that to an actual cover shot...and also, did it get an M+ rating or an AO rating in the US? Would be interesting to know, given it's the first Larry game to be released after the creation of the ESRB (or was that already around for any earlier entry?).

I'm terribly sorry if this was posted elsewhere and I missed it, but they now have the Greatest hits and misses on GOG.com. First time I've ever played them, but it has the talkie version of LSL 6, which according to the article the disc version didn't have.
Also, fun fact my mom offered to buy me LSL 7, which I passed up for Street Fighter Alpha on PC (I wouldn't ever change that decision mind you it made me love fighting games) and years later the first of the new games. Never understood the latter, but the former was because me and my dad had played LucasArts games like Day of the Tentacle and she thought that was going to be just like that. I was 10.

My understanding of the situation is shaky, but...Activision unloaded the license onto Codemasters when it picked up that atrocious Box Office Bust game, so I believe they're the current rightsholder. Then Al/Josh/whoever else is licensing the property back in order to develop the remake.
I've seen some express disappointment that the SVGA version of LSL6 wasn't included in the collection. Is it really that much better than the regular VGA version?
I've also seen speculation that the much-demanded 7th game will be released separately, very likely bundled with Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust which, given the way GOG's handled other Sierra releases, makes sense, and probably the only way they'd get anyone to put up any money for those two games.
Got nothing to do with that, there's a much simpler explanation: LSL7 isn't yet supported by ScummVM, the same goes for the SVGA version of LSL6. Those Sierra Win 95/98 games have really crap compatibility with newer systems, so just using the original executables isn't an option, either.
