  1. aahhh, watching this was like smoking a good ol' pipe with sherlock holmes, and then realizing that you have a grapefruit in the fridge. This theory works well for me, I don't think I'd mind that much if that had turned out to be the case actually There is that problem with elaine saying "I hope le chuck hasn't put a SPELL on him" and le chucks eyes glowing red, but then again there was a third game to be had. Nice job :>
  2. you give those elves what they deserve!

  4. There was some talk on the mainpage about remixing music from monkey island a while ago. I saw some of you guys contributed so I guess I'm not the only musician in here : ) I know I'm a bit late, but here is my mix anyways, it's a mixture between different monkey island tracks, so we'll see if you recognize the different parts. http://www.box.net/shared/hx3jux1xme Downloading = Better quality than streaming it in the boxplayer Why don't you throw some of your mixes in this thread? And for the ones that doesn't produce music, feel free to post monkeymixes that you find on the interknots. For instance, there's this really nice chipdub mix out there somewhere that I'm looking for. Anyone has it, post it : ] Hope you like the tune!
  5. Damn! I'm so glad you mentioned Daedlich! I started remembering about "The Whispered World", googled some and whaddya know. It's going to be released the 12th of february : ) This is a golden age for adventure gaming.
  6. yeah I play the olds again from time to time : ) but I guess I've done that MOSTLY because there were no new games I was interessted in. Now, on the other hand, we're all swimming in in an ocea--- a puddle, of adventuregames. How was ceville? I'm thinking I'm gonna have a go at that one aswell, soon. Did you get to play it yet, and was it any good?
  7. I'm PINING for "The Book of Unwritten Tales", but I've been waiting patiently for an english talkie. Since that obviously isn't going to happen, has anyone played it with english subs? If so, was it a nail in your soul or could you live with it? : ) (oh and yes, Machinarium comes with soundtrack in other countries aswell, and I agree, it has an amazing soundtrack. Tomas Dvorak <3)
  8. What the scene was supposed to emit does not change that it was poorly written. I for one, felt like it was supposed to cause the same player reaction as the lighthouse scene from Grim Fandango. That scene (I assume most of you have played GF) is a good comparison. And the way those two scenes differ from eachother in terms of; how the earlier events led to the scene, how the scene played out, and what impact the scene had on the events following after it, are just astronomical, even if the scenes have the same concept. I'm not suggesting Telltale should copy the lighthousescene, I'm just saying that it's an example of a good way of building up a dramatic scene. Morgans "death"-scene is (to me) an example of a bad way of building a dramatic scene. [EDIT: for those of you who don't remember, here's a youtube vid I found of the GF-scene, start at 2 minutes: ]
  9. That's very true.. I've rambled about this numerous times, and to me, TOMI is no exception from this problem. De Singe, for instance, is too much of a tastelessly-wacky-cartoonnetwork-character for me. So I guess your right, I aswell should be encouraging Telltale for trying to put some serious plot in there for once, instead of criticise them for it. It's just that.. Even if it's an attempt to write some good ol' adventure story. It's not getting to me, obviously. If the characters of Monkey Island are going to get serious repercussions and change. I wouldn't want it to be from this game. Simply because I don't feel that strongly about it. But since I'm only getting protests here. I'm going to replay it and see if I was just in a grumpy mood or something. Try to view it with different eyes.
  10. Yes, that is more or less exactly what I'm expecting. That's what I ment with it being predictible. It's so obvious that Guybrush is going to come back to life in the next episode, and that's why it felt silly that they made his deathscene so melo-dramatic. Ahh! I didn't get that one : ) But ofcourse it is a reference to that! That almost made up for that lousy line.
  11. I'll clearify what I am refering to: (spoiler) Show spoiler (hidden content - requires Javascript to show) When guybrush finds Morgan "dead" in de singes laboratory he stares dramaticly into the nightsky through the open balcony door and says: "de singe! >: (" As if it was a childrens cartoon. And in the end, guybrush "DIES". this is ridiculous because it is so enormously obvious that he doesn't die, since one doesn't kill off the main character, one episode before the ending. It is the oldest and worst "drama trick" in the book, and building a dramatic scene around it with flickering eyecamera and phrases like "uhhh...elaine.... kick his but for me", just makes it even worse. Furthermore, I feel this is "non-monkey-island", because monkey island was never about dramatic cut-scenes with worn-out hollywood-phrases. It is about humour and sarcasm! I'd like to point out that it's just the hollywood-story elements of the game I don't like. The rest of it is awesome. I guess we just have different opinions about this, where mine seems to be the controvercial one. I'm a little bit surprised that nobody can relate to what I'm feeling... : /
  12. Well. I have to say... I'm not sure if this is entierly OKAY with me. I mean. This is dangerously close to absolutly ridiculous storytelling. I literally laughed out loud on the occasions that were supposed to be the most dramatic, because it just felt so wrong! So very, very, childishly predictable, and so very, very, non-monkey-island. At the same time, I found myself intrigued by it! Giggeling and reluctant, it pulled into the story. And since this isn't really a sequel in the monkey island series, (it's not "monkey island 5"); Do they even get to write the story this controvercial? I mean, not only do they gladly make changes in character-relations, but they also change parts of the past story of monkey island! What I want to discuss is: The story is "stepping out of line". Do you approve?
