  1. I created a Monkey Island page in 1997 (the Monkey Island Mega Monkey page) that was on the webring, The first iteration had a blue sky background and swinging Monkey gifs from Monkey Island 2. It was hosted on my computer through the dyn.dns service. I was lucky to live in the Time Warner Road Runner (then called Line Runner) testing area so my parents got high speed cable internet way back in 1995.

  2. The changes also barely effect anything, the claims that the edits have 'ruined the edgy comedy' is absurd, none of the cut lines were that spectacular and there's plenty of raunchy, edgy uncouth humour left in the game. Also I did not remember that line about a young teen girl online exploring herself, but I will say it kinda gave me the heebiejeebies. I think in this day and age cutting it was a good call. It's a depressing state of affairs the way that certain causes that I'm sure these people don't REALLY care about (remember the review bombing on Ion Fury last year? It was the same crud) become this viral hatemob thing that is just this really toxic parasitical thing. Heck, people were so upset by The Last Jedi they were saying absurd things like Rian Johnson is a hack and terrible film maker, despite him having directed lots of other pretty well regarded films. It's all just buzzwords and this disgusting vile group think and I'm so sick of seeing it. Social media has shown for good and for bad people being loud and aggressive can result in people getting what they 'want'. I also think it must feel 'good' in a way for these people to feel like they're a 'part' of something and having an 'enemy' to rally against. It's all so tiring. But enough mulling on the toxicity, the remaster is wonderful and everyone has done a great job giving these games some well deserved love and care and I hope you guys can keep doing what you're doing! Much love And much love to this community and this thread, it's nice to see some sunshine in between all the poo flinging!

  4. While I certainly do not know for sure, I don't think they've released specific items from other big releases as separate releases that I can tell.

  5. I loved the webrings. My favorite was a site called SCUMM, which simply had a Monkey Island parody of the Cheers theme song. I've thought about doing a video parody of that song, but I don't know who I would credit.

  6. We’re already working on season two! To be clear, I understand not liking that a new version of something has changed in a way that makes me like it less. That is a shitty feeling when it happens to something you like. It’s just not censorship! And trying to claim it IS censorship to give those feelings more weight is not justifiable. It sucks to feel bad because a thing I like has changed, but the world does not owe me for those feelings. Is it “bad business” to change something in a way that some customers don’t like? Maybe! (Or maybe not, depending on the outcome!) But again, that’s not censorship either.

  7. I don’t understand how people editing their own work is censorship, especially when the original is still available. That’s not at all what censorship is. in the case of this Sam & Max release, I think what’s going on is a small subset of the audience aren’t getting exactly what they want, and are upset but know that sounds childish to complain about, so they’re crying censorship as a somehow more “acceptable” way of throwing that same fit. (Sorry for bringing some negativity to this good times thread!)
