Poor Larry Laffer. Few characters have ever been so misunderstood or unfairly looked down on than Al Lowe's perpetual but loveable loser, thanks to a couple of basic misconceptions about the series—that the Leisure Suit Larry games are sex games rather than comedy games about sex, and that Larry himself is some kind of sex monster, rather than a guy who spent at least his first trilogy
Larry's awkward journey with the ladies has undergone all sorts of delays, but he's truly beat the odds and is now ready to come again. Shudder.

Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week, it's the black sheep of one of adventure gaming's most misunderstood franchises, and the weirdest cruise you'll ever take. Sequels are funny things. Usually, they're relatively predictable - taking an idea that worked or struck a chord, ramping it
In a world of clones and copycats, it’s worth remembering that every idea was once new. Whether it’s Richard Garriott turning himself into the world’s first cosplayer by showing up at conventions dressed as his alter-ego Lord British, or Westwood inventing the RTS in Dune II, these are the moments that defined the games we play today.
