Twinsen LBA2 Review Inside PC Gamer Magazine For May 2012

I bought this PC Gamer magazine today. It has a three page review of LBA2 inside!


My favourite bit - "A genuine sense that you're exploring a world built with love."


May 2012 Edition

Simply Amazing. I'm glad LBA is being covered in today's magazines, 15 years after its release.

Cool, though I don't know why they picked such a shitty quality / over zoomed picture for the first page.

Brings me back to 1997. LBA 2 was a birthday gift (IIRC) and it took me awhile to find the tralu. I traveled to Desert Island in the rain and didn't realize it was a glitch, haha. Good times.

Been away on research. I'm back for a couple of weeks, and then out again for much of the summer. Glad to see things are progressing nicely for LBA PR!

Nice typo on the last page in the upper left corner: "Other 1994 games we love"
It's obviously 1997

Yeah, I've read that. Maybe the guy was thinking about the original LBA when he wrote down that?

After all, any guy bringing that (rare) old game back must be some kind of fan, to a certain extend.



Edit: HOLY SHIT! Double-J and ElMuerte posting in the same thread, is this site going down or something??
