Update - 1/4 - Lucasarts, Legend, and a bit of Sierra, plus Retro Game Challenge

Over the holidays I got plenty of time to spend with the PC, so, this update includes reviews of several early Lucasarts adventures (back when they were still technically called Lucasfilm) including Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, and the Indiana Jones SCUMM Adventures. On the Sierra side, there's Phantasmagoria, Roberta Williams' wannabe classic, and its pseudo-disastrous sequel, which I actually kinda like. I've been going through Legend's game library too, since I've never really mucked with their games before, and whipped up reviews for, Companions of Xanth, Callahan's Crosstime Saloon (which I finally got a legit copy of), and Shannara. To keep this update from being too overwhelmed with adventure games, there's Coktel Vision's Inca, an extremely trippy puzzle/space combat/dungeon crawler featuring Incas In Space, and Retro Game Challenge, also known as Game Center CX, the duo of DS games built around a health sense of nostalgia.
