Leisure Suit Larry Part 8: This Cruise is a Bust

Well, last time, Larry went to Russia. This time things might go better for Larry. Might as in probably not. Anyway, what you’re SUPPOSE to do in the bar is go over to the left and grab a complimentary bowl of the wretched spinach dip. Because, you know, I like points.

Leisure Suit Larry Part 7: White Suited Capitalist Swine

I guess I should stop killing Larry, and actually get to doing what we’re here to do at the pool. There’s on item we need to get at the pool, but it’s an essential item for beating the game. And it’s in the pool. So Larry, time to go swimming.

Leisure Suit Larry Part 6 Dying By The Poolside

Thank you Crimson-penguin for an Etna that I don’t have to resize twice to scale to Larry! Extra points for the face of apathy while I torture Larry. Although in truth, I don’t think Larry dying is boring. I think it’s hilarious. But for now, let’s get Larry to pool. First he needs to go back to his room to change.

You’re right! This IS a good place to change!

 

 

….sometimes it’s better if you just don’t talk. Just get to the pool dammit.

 

 

The description just says something about the pool being refreshing.

Leisure Suit Larry Part 4: Long-Butt Cut Scene

Did you really think that I was done with Larry? Naaaah. I just had school. Also, taking a step back to try to think about how I want to improve these things. For further reference…


The Etna Sprite will refer to my commentary, outside of captions on screenshots. It’s a parallel. Etna enjoys torturing Prinnies for her amusement, and I enjoy torturing Larry in a similar matter. Now let’s begin.

Larry doesn't run on food and water like the rest of us. He runs on hot babes.

Leisure Suit Larry 2 Part 3: I Finally Killed Larry!

On thing that’s been bothering me is my inability to kill Larry. I’ve been using a guide and all, but come-on. In the first game, you could kill Larry by just walking out into the street. So that was the first thing you could do! Not much later, he could die by flushing the toilet! Yet in the sequel, Larry does whatever he wants, and doesn’t die. As of now, this has changed.

Anywho, this update pretty much covers everything that happens until a lengthy cut scene that introduces us to the dramatic part of the story.

Anywho, where we last left off, we had just won a ton of money, and I failed to score.  I don’t know what you guys do when you’ve been rejected, but I go shopping.

This looks like a good place to start

Leisure Suit Larry 2 part 2: The TV Studio

I wonder when I’ll actually get to playing the next part. I’m feeling better! Yay! This means I’m well enough to work on homework! Boo! Anyway, now that Larry’s got his awesome lottery ticket of perfection, and it’s sure to be a winner, time to take it to the TV studio.

This pretty much confirms that Larry is a total loser. And I don't have much life either to be playing a game from before I was born. So I'm a loser playing a total loser...

Playing Through Lesiure Suit Larry 2 part 1 Getting Started

While I’m still playing Disgaea, I’m taking a short break between it, and inbetween assignments, playing through Leisure Suit Larry 2: Looking For Love (In All The Wrong Places). Playing through the first game, my boyfriend was up to watch me play, and I quite enjoyed showing it to him. The first game was notable for being a sex comedy, and while is nothing by today’s standards, was outrageous back in the day. So outrageous, that when it came time for Larry’s sequel, they had to scale back on the sex dramatically.  Thus Leisure Suit Larry wasn’t as much of a sex comedy, had an actual story, and was bashed in reviews for not having the same spunk. While this may be the weaker of the Al Lowe Larry games, it did set the standard for them to have an actual storyline. Yay! I guess.

Anyway, since my boyfriend is not here, I’m posting my playthrough of the game for him (and anyway else to see). And yes, this is pirated. Why I’m admitting this, is so that if Sierra sees it, I’ll explain to why I haven’t bought their game. See, Sierra decided that they should release Space Quest/King’s Quest/LSL/Police Quest in sets that include the first five games or something. Great idea, right? Too bad they decided that while they were at it, to update the graphics so the no longer have that nostalgic feel and instead look really bad, and make every game a point and click even when it wasn’t one in the first place. At least, they did it with Space Quest. I’m not wasting my money on anymore. If you’re going to rerelease the games, rerelease the actual game. I will pay for it.

Alright, let’s start…

You go through copy-protection EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE GAME. I kid you not. Who thought that was a good idea?
