April Fools' 2020
For sixteen years now, Grumpy Gamer has been 100% April Fools' joke free. I'm a little disappointed the gaming press hasn't caught onto this. You'd think it would be a good human interest story.
Oh well, maybe I should do a Twitch channel ranting about April Fools' day. I'm only on once a year.
If there is any good to come out of this horrible COVID-19 disaster, it's that most big outlets have canceled their April Fools' pranks.
Stay safe. Stay inside.
Also I´m looking forward for the message that this CORVID-19 nightmare is finally over ...
... until then I stay intel inside and play MI2 again - this time via wireless gamepad, which I made a mouse/keyboard mapping for, and actually it's faster than mouse keyboard combo - though I never used keyboard shortcuts for the SCUMM bar verbs before- BUT I was wondering:
Is this the revolution of point and click adventures? A new way of controlling your GUYBRUSH :D
PS: Funny I found out all the keyboardshortcuts for MI2 now that I`m 35years old ... even the dialog lines you can select 'em through the keyboard numbers. And I just now understand what awesome job the Michael Land gang did with the music - I mean seriously the Music in woodtick and in the vodoo swamp buildin' up as you move inside thats untouchable and hard to recognize for an 8 year old back in the day. But still kudos for the music got to go to you Sir Gilbert, as Michael Land stated it was your idea that MI needs reggae music in it. Thanks for all the good jokes (when I was checking out my gamepad control and accidently tried to PICK UP Wally himself instead of the looking glas ... yo that line is too good)
u2 stay safe.
No, mapping Ctrl+W to a gamepad is NOT the new way of controlling adventure games 😀
Ugh, I need to get outside more. Soon.
Try picking up others too... like Captain Kate Capsize!
I was just reading all the flirting lines you can try on her ^^

I am very curious what will happen. Cheers!
