I was thinking about the LucasArts rereleases that hit Steam today, and it hit me. The one thing I couldn't figure out about the Secret of Monkey Island remake was what they were going to do with the LOOM plug. Nobody'd expect a general audience to even know that LOOM existed at this point, so the joke would go nowhere, right? And then they go and re-release the damn game a week ahead of Secret, so not only is the joke current again, it even serves the original purpose of blatantly plugging a LA adventure game that could use some sales.
LucasArts, I salute you.
