    On XP, I think it would be fine. I think it can do Vista too, if you patch it right. IIRC there are some issues with the cutscenes, but nothing crippling.

    "not only is today the first day for a new President Elect, but it's also something much more important - the ten year anniversary for the release of Grim Fandango"

    ROFL!

    Absolutely hilarious. I wouldn't have solved more than two or three of these puzzles though, which would have left me unspeakably frustrated.

    Gawd, is it really ten years?
    Its a totally brillianty game and I have to say that I still think that Glotis is one of the best sidekicks ever. Two simply brilliant moments that spring to mind are the first time you get to see the pimped up car and much later on the way he deals with the booby trapped car.

    What I liked most about this was that he faked a printer error on the last puzzle cos they hadn't figured it out by the deadline! Nice work...

    I picked up Grim Fandango a few years back in a package with Sam & Max, The Dig and Full Throttle. I gave up on it when a bug at the racetrack corrupted my save. A bug which the patch was supposed to have fixed. The puzzles were so difficult for me up to that point that I didn't feel like going through them again, even though the answers were fresh in my mind. I'll give it another go someday as it was pretty good up to then.

    Ugly Betty brought a smile to my face the first time I watched it.

    Well the Demo doesn't run properly...
    Have to see if I can get a full version somewhere (beeing 10 years old it's dissapeared from the bargain bins)
    Hmmm, this and full throttle, that would be something for Good Old Games...

    Ooh, no, I didn't get DOTT. Let's see, I got (looks behind me)... 'The Entertainment Pack'. Come to think of It, I recently saw Sam & Max: Hit The Road for sale by itself in Zavvi. There was another old Lucasarts game too, but I can't remember what. I think it may have been The Dig. They were certainly a strange sight, sitting there brand new on a shelf.

    I was looking at buying a signed copy of Psychonauts earlier today from the double fine store. Excellent game.
