On this day in 2004 one of my favorite crude games was released for PC, Xbox and PlayStation to by Sierra, Leisure Suit Larry Magna Cum Laude. Developed by High Voltage Software, Magna Cum is the 7th sequel in the Leisure Suit Larry franchise. You play as Larry Lovage, a college student who primary motivation is bedding women from around campus in order to get on a dating TV show "Swingles". As Larry, you explore the campus to find women to seduce and items to assist in your quest. When trying to coerce a woman to bed or into an intimate situation, a mini-game will pop up which you as the player must complete gaining favor with your potential sexual partner.
Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude is considered an Adult Game. Originally the game was given an "Adults Only" rating in North America. Alterations were made by the developers to gain a "Mature" rating. In Europe, the game was uncensored and contained full frontal nudity and sex scenes. As you would expect for a game with this kind of theme, reviews were mixed. Many reviewers thought the jokes and sexual material was to direct. Those that enjoyed the game praised the humor. The Metacritic scores reflected the mixed response with Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude gaining a 60% (PS2 version). It is one of my favorite games of the 6th console generation. I recommend the game for those who want a relaxing game with a bit of adult humor.#thisdayingaming#onthisdaygaming#todayingaming#videogamehistory#videogames#Sierra#SierraVideoGames#HighVoltage#HighVoltageGames#LeisureSuitLarry#LeasureSuitLarryMagnaCumLaude#Xbox#PlayStation#PlayStation2#XboxOriginal#PC
Those of you who are a 'certain age' will smile at this one. Back when the personal computer was finally powerful enough to do more than send a little white square bouncing around a black and white monitor, one company began to start producing games that were not only in colour, but were actually well written and entertaining. Sierra produced many adventure games in genres covering everything from space to fantasy. One however, stood out - Leisure Suit Larry was an instant hit, and one of the first victims of widespread piracy. Sierra sold more hint books (remember those?) than actual games. Designed by Al Lowe, players would manoeuvre poor Larry through endless misadventures and when Sony brought out its powerful (at the time) PlayStation 2, Sierra was right there with an incredible new version of Leisure Suit Larry - Magna Cum Laude. Larry trying to survive in college is every bit as hilarious as it sounds, and if you have a PS2 sitting around and you can get your hands on a copy of the game, be prepared to laugh out loud!
