I already e-mailed her with my question. Again (he says nicely so that if Gair reads this she answers my question). 8)

I already posted this but i guess in the wrong part, you can keep asking her stuff, she responded my question in a day, nothing really current, but i was curious so i just asked. here it goes

Q: Whatever happened with the lawsuit Frank had with Lennon about the song on his album "Sometime in New York" called "Jamrag", which is actually "King Kong". Did it ever got resolved? because its still listed as a Lennon-Ono song. The only song that credits Zappa in the album is "Scumbag".

A: There is no lawsuit. I have tried to resolve this with Yoko via her attorney - to no avail. You are correct however. It is King Kong and it is so wrong that it is erroneously being claimed as their composition.

Not to dwell on this, but was the Roxy not already advertised (BS dvd comes to mind) as pretty much ready to release? And now she says this, like they're back at ground zero on this project-WTF?

It's not uncommon in, say, the world of gaming to advertise something as "coming up" when there is time and budget scheduled for it, even though there is still next to nothing in the works. Whatever the struggle was for Roxy, it's material only.

Did someone say Duke Nukem Forever ?

It has been in development ever since 1997 and it looks like it will finally be released in May this year...

There are hints towards Gabriel Knight 4. The GK series are fantastic suspense stories, like a good book you can't put down or a Hitchcock that lets you think in the wrong direction and comes up with a marvellous plot twist. When adventure gaming was considered "dead" by reviewers and gamers, the plans for GK4 were ceased, but there are still references to GK4 in GK3; and from the looks of the disk contents, they changed the ending to match that.
Leisure Suit Larry 7 announces LSL8 at the end, when the ship is beamed up by a flying saucer. Work on Larry 8: Lust In Space had already started, when Sierra, the company that made the series, was taken over by a Japanese company, and all the adventure game designers were let off.
There is now finally a sequel to the 7th Guest and 11th Hour series: 7th Guest grew immensely popular and spawned many clones. A fan re-make called 13th Doll was made, but a real sequel is to be released "soon"; 11th Hour was made in 1997.
The Cluedo Chronicles was intended to be a series in three parts. The first one is Fatal Illusion. It was a neat game, although buggy, but sales were below expectations and Hasbro lost interest. Leaving the unfortunate gamer with unresolved plotholes.
