    Hmm. Now Gold Guy looks like a tap / faucet. LOLzerz. "Going down the drain" jokes ahoy!

    For some reason, looking at the new graphical stylings in the new logo, I just can't help but feel reminded of Escape from Monkey Island.

    Unlike the company itself, it has a rather nostaligic quality to it.

    Now, he looks like he got stuck on the windshield of a passing car! [face_laugh]

    I think this is Gold Guy jnr.

    He looks like a kid, so maybe his dad has chosen to retire...

    Some of us toyed with the idea, basing it on lack of a large, decent library of games or the inferior quality of many of the games which they do release.

    But you went for the juggernaut and decided it was the logo. I salute you.

    Ok, I was just kidding. If you were as well, then I salute you. If you weren't kidding as well, then I'm sorry for confusing you. As a rule, if I use the term "final proof" then I am joking or being sarcastic (not that there is any way you would know that - I'm just pointing it out).

    I'm not too fond of it yet. I don't get the trend of making logos look like children have drawn them. Ah well, it all cycles out eventually.

    As long as he still does cool things before a game starts I'll be okay with him.

    I'd be happier if cool things happened after the game started, regardless of what the logo looks like. Oh, and this may just be nostalgia talking but I prefer the original.

    The original one was more creative I think- this new logo makes the "it's actually an eye" hidden image way too obvious now (whereas before, i didn't really realize that myself until a few years ago ;) )/

    Neh, don't much care for it. Maybe it'll grow on me, but then, when they cancelled Sam + Max 2, my level of interest in LucasArts dropped to zero, so I honestly don't care.
