  1. I made a breakdown video with my thoughts and observations https://youtu.be/RNq9zROn_RE
  2. If you havent checked the web page it has been updated and is built like a dialog tree with Stan!!!!! https://returntomonkeyisland.com/
  3. Okay, so when the announcement first dropped I had decided to start letting my beard grow "playoff beard" style until the game came out. Yesterday however after a heat wave was killing me I decided to shave it and now today we have the trailer. Sorry guys, I think my juju backfired lol. Cursed beard of silence... begone!!!! Enough of that silliness now though, the trailer is wonderful and has so much to glean from it, everyone looks incredible!!!!! Wow I am excited Also I agree that November seems more likely now, im rooting for the 2nd as that's my birthday lol and I can't think of a better way to spend my 40th. I of course hope for before then as well as I can't wait
  4. That Grim 2 is something i want now... damned AI lol Here are a couple quick ones: Write a crossover between "Big Trouble in Little China" and "The Secret of Monkey Island" When Jack Burton rolls into town in search of his missing friend, he's not expecting to find himself in the middle of a centuries-old battle between good and evil. But that's exactly what he's gotten himself into when he discovers that his friend has been kidnapped by none other than the evil pirate LeChuck. Now, Jack must team up with the self-proclaimed mighty pirate Guybrush Threepwood to rescue his friend and put an end to LeChuck's evil plans. But it won't be easy, because as Jack soon discovers, LeChuck is a lot more powerful than he looks. Together, Jack and Guybrush will have to use all of their skills to outwit LeChuck and his minions. They'll need to be brave, they'll need to be resourceful, and most of all, they'll need to be lucky. Because if they're not, they're both going to end up as monkey food. write a "next generation" follow up to the "monkey island" series featuring Guybrush and Elaines children In "Monkey Island: The Next Generation", Guybrush and Elaine's children take on the mantle of adventure from their parents. The game follows the twins, Threepwood and Pirate, as they search for the fabled treasure of the Monkey Island. Along the way they must contend with the evil pirate LeChuck, who is also after the treasure. The game is a comedic point-and-click adventure, with the twins often bickering with each other as they solve puzzles and battle enemies. The game also features cameos from Guybrush and Elaine, as well as other characters from the Monkey Island series.
  5. My security cameras caught mine lol
  6. maybe not an unpopular thought but an unsettling one. The Bernard/Hoagie/Laverne amalgamation was just another 3 headed monkey joke and I think it was lost on a lot of people
  7. Hi Dom! I get super wary over spoilers as well, especially given my mild social media addiction, it can be a minefield out there whenever something new drops. As much as I have always wanted to work on a Monkey Island myself in some capacity(I would take any oppertunity in a heartbeat), I know I would be trading off that feeling of experiencing the story for the first time as a fan. It would be a hard choice on something like this especially with Ron back. Thank you for making that hard choice and coming back as our definitive voice of Guybrush
  8. Okay after hooking up my old sega cdx and firing up the sega cd version I just want to discourage anyone ever considering playing it that way for speed. the loading between transitions and even just wandering around is insane. Additionally my LRG versions would not play which is likely an effect of how they made them. Most sega cd consoles don't really have copy protection so you can play backups unintentionally, later revisions like my CDX however added security which blocked burnt disc's etc. Not saying the LRG edition is a burnt copy but it may not be signed in whatever way sega used eventually to verify authenticity. my original release plays just fine
  9. ooooh or the Sega CD version... on native hardware the entire run would consist of fighting loading times
  10. My strategy for the cook: open kitchen door, get yelled at. Look at fire: cozy. Wait 5-8 seconds and the cook will emerge every time
  11. Super weird that it Keeps turning MI2 LeChuck into Herman Also the tales cover gets very Dr Who-ish in its iterations I wonder why the AI has such a tendency for G Titles as well... Very very cool stuff thank you for sharing!
  12. Has anyone posted this wonderful new interview yet? I love the detailed answers Grossman is giving to the questions. One of my favorite Ron quotes: tbc I never want the series to end so forward thinking design that will leave room for more story and an expanded pool of new creators contributing is something I definitely appreciate. All together I found this interview to be of better quality than other recent efforts and worth the short read. Still no new images but one day we will get that I imagine
  13. Still took some doing even with the hint and a random unrelated guess to find more letters lol I beat #Mojole and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 4/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  14. I have been well and thouroghly steeped in all things monkey island and a few related games as well. I've been playing a lot of different versions of SMI gathering footage for various projects, so basically when I'm not playing the game I'm probably playing with footage of it in editing software lol. In that regards im just throwing the finishing touches on my tales playthrough and then ill be releasing that on youtube. I just finished a Thimbleweed park playthrough, have a PS2 EMI playthrough I've put on hold temporarily and have streamed or been streaming playthroughs of MI2 and currently Sam and Max This Time its Virtual.
  15. Relevant then would be this video I *just* seen of someone running SMI in a reimplemented Thimbleweed engine
  16. Some form of analog stick usage, lips that flap and oh yeah Guybrush confirmed:
  17. Oh Absolutely I really should probably just do that too lol, I just know whenever i miss something i either pay waaaay to much in the aftermarket eventually or dont get it at all, there is some stuff that I missed at the telltale store back in the day that i honestly might never be able to get without spending a fair amount and it literally eats at me lol. Dont even get me started on those Voodoo dolls... lol I honestly usually end up opening these when they come in these days people have gotten so good at resealing there will be no real way to know the plastic is original unless it's become brittle enough to fall off anyway so I find it hard to really see the value in keeping the plastic on in a lot of cases. I ended up doing an unboxing video for the StW releases when they arrived and will likely do the same for these I was just originally hoping to get seperate switch copies to fill the slip cover but am prepared to use the one out of the big box if I need too
  18. Thank you and I completely agree it's awesome to see the forum so lively and the fansites as busy as... well... the media trickle will let them be the explosion of fan content pumping new art, video content, etc has been amazing. I watched a bit of the LRG Beyond Time and Space stream yesterday which was fun as well, I wanted Emily, Dan or Jon to take over gameplay though lol.
  19. Oh thats brutal... I need too see more... lucky Devolver person...
  20. So I was able to pull the trigger tonight on the Switch and PC BTaS LRG big boxes and am planning to do the same with the TTIV boxes as well later this month. If I can I may try to get the standard releases as well but so far they were sacrifices I had to make to make hopefully be able to this work with 2 titles releasing this way at the same time. I'm glad to do it though, I really love these games, the memories of community that they bring back and the care that's been taken in their updating. The eventual shelf full of Sam and Max stuff alone will be worth it
  21. Me too I guess lol I beat #Mojole and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  22. I would like to re suggest Garry Chalk, I think he could possibly do an excellent Boen-esque LeChuck I believe but still have it come out sounding his own way. His Willy T Wino in Thimbleweed Park was very similar in tone to say Boen as Dr: Silverman in the terminator films so I believe he could do his own version of that role in VO and have it sound good. I admit I'm not familiar with his more energetic deliveries which could make or break a good Yarrr and whatnot but I couldn't help but notice the similarities when replaying TP recently. I really want to hear his best pirate voice
  23. that was fun, I still don't think I want to know where he keeps it lol I beat #Mojole and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  24. I'm also a little dude so this way of wearing coats is just life for me lol, I can relate to the image in my head I guess. but yeah I can totally see it as say an ill fitting hand me down, I always thought some of the gold piping etc that was added in later renditions made the coat look more fancy then how I interpreted it. I could easily build the scene in my mind of GB in classic gear, maybe a bit of stubble finding this old tattered pirate coat and adopting it. Add in a scene finding pirate boots and you have a perfect costume progression between 1 and 2 lol
  25. It Is truly weird how the Guybrush MI 2 sprite leaves so much to the brain for interpretation. To me he always looked to be in a coat waaaay too big for him, his hands half covered by the sleeves, the bottom worn from being a bit too long. I fully realize that this is just my brains interpretation and other may see it differently but I think that itself is really interesting
