Gave it a playthrough. There's a LOT more nudity in here than any of the regular Leisure Suit Larry games. It's not really explicit, but it's definitely more of an "ero" game. It's the only version that actually gives you a view of the porn you show the pimp, after all. I'll get some pics up soon, once I finish screencapping LSL Reloaded.

Well, the stuff from Love for Sail was mostly Easter eggs, while these aren't.
I also completed LSL Reloaded and wrote up reviews for both that and Las Vegas, so if I get the time this weekend I'll at it to the update, which will include comparison screenshots for all major sections of all four versions. I still think Reloaded is generally good for what it is, but keeping the gambling and need for cash was easily the worst decision to make. Most of the suggestion for beating it online (short of the usual save scumming) involve using cheat devices to hack the cash value, which is absurd.
Also, the game still seems to take place in the 80s, but the art style seems to suggest something more like modern day. This makes it really weird that you still have to trek halfway across the city to use a payphone.

Got this whole article updated, barring any HTML bits I messed up! Other than the first page, not much has really been added text-wise, although I dug through my screenshot directories and added some some pictures. Mostly of some of the dirtier bits (hidden behind text links for the most part), because, why not.
There's a photo of the LSL6 calendar with the subtitle "Leisure Suit Larry 6 - Deleted Character", but that doesn't match the photo.
The March month of the calendar actually shows Passionate Patty, the drawing of her has been made just for the calendar, and not for the game. The text at the bottom left of the image also says "Patty", (but that's indeed hard to read on the resolution) and it's additionally obvious from her sitting in front of a piano - which she plays as seen in LSL5. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's basically the "most recent" picture we have of Patty.

I confess Magna Cum Laude is a guilty pleasure of mine, the actual gameplay isn't anything great, most of the minigames are lame, but I happen to like the writing and the characters, there are some legit funny moments (one of my favorites is Larry boasting "I was Brian Dennehy's stand in for FX2" as if that's an impressive achievement) and as a fan of college set comedies like Animal House and Revenge of the Nerds it's interesting to play a video game version of that genre.
Box Office Bust on the other hand is just pure garbage, I'm very glad that Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded came out so the series wouldn't have to end on that note.
