Sending my email as we speak!

I would highly recommend reading the rest of the news page.  Tim Shafer is hillarious.

Very encouraging!  Not to mention amusing.

Oops.  Here's a cut 'n paste hack job:

Quote
I originally posted this in that other thread, but it was buried, so I figured I'd make a new topic out of it, because I rock so much.

Let me preface this by saying that Tim Schafer rules and you should read his blog because it's hilarious. Also, you should play Grim Fandango and Psychonauts because they are some of the most wildly creative, funny, and generally awesome games I have ever played. And I will fight you to the ends of the earth if you disagree with me.

That's just how I roll.

The e-mail I sent to Microsoft:

Subject: PSYCHONAUTS!!!! (Not the same as the other e-mails with the same title!)

Forward: I bet you automatically filter e-mails with the word Psychonauts in the subject line. But I digress.

Hello, employee who will probably send me an automated response to the effect of, "We are working feverishly toward updating the backward-compatibility as best we can and will put you on a mailing list that you will send to your spam box because none of those e-mails will be relevant."

I'm sorry, we got off on the wrong foot.

My name is Kaleb and I love Microsoft and Windows and Bill Gates and the Xbox 360 and love you even more for reading my e-mail.

Psychonauts is the best game of all time. Xbox 360 is great. Wouldn't it be super-great if Psychonauts was compatible with the Xbox 360? I'd tell all my friends about it and start a viral marketing campaign if you made it happen. Also, I would be your best friend.

Do you want me to be your best friend?

If so, person who has nothing to do with the backwards-compatibility development team, please make Psychonauts backwards-compatible.


Thank you,
-Kaleb.
Their response, which is kickass:

We are working feverishly toward updating the backward-compatibility as best we can and will put you on a mailing list that you will send to your spam box because none of those e-mails will be relevant.

Just kidding, of course. I do want you to be my best friend. I misplaced my last best friend. Well, more accurately, my best friend left me at a bus stop. But I digress.

I actually, really, truly am one of the developers on the backwards compatibility team. No foolin'.

Rest assured, we are working on Psychonauts.

Sincerely,

Alan Stuart
