  1. I don't think there's cause for concern yet about it appearing there, Steam tends to get wishlist stuff early no matter what other stores it's on. I image that as soon as we get a release date, potentially with pre-orders, it'll show up there. I think by then if there's no word about a GOG release at all, THEN we might have to assume there's an exclusivity window for Steam.
  2. I think that, if most of the game takes place after Tales, LeChuck could potentially still be a bit of goo in a jar held by the Voodoo Lady, so it could just be that there's been a period of peace for Guybrush where he hasn't faced him since that last adventure.
  3. I mentionted this to Glokidd on his stream dissecting the trailer, that this could be the potential for a great bit that shows off the differences in how Guybrush and Elaine handle a situation, with Guybrush just running (literally) head first into danger, while Elaine takes the practical approach in her descent. Of course, it also appears that these scenes take place at different times, unless Guybrush does something at the bottom that immediately causes lava to erupt from the depths...I wouldn't put it past him.
  4. It's times like this that I really wish I had some insight into marketing and release scheduling so I could make informed, accurate predictions. Instead, I'll just talk out of my butt. It's possible that they'll wait a certain amount of time to see how the Wishlisting is tracking, and when they have enough, BAM! Shadowdrop. Altenratively, yes, Talk Like a Pirate Day makes a lot of sense, though even that date and November seems incredibly far away given the game seems so close to completion, but again, I have no idea what the development cycle looks like. Tales Chapter 1, SMI:SE and MI2:SE have all released in July, could we be THAT close? Or maybe during Gamescom in August? Idk, so many possibilities! I really wish we ended up with a date to go along with this trailer, but them's the breaks, you can't have everything, and if they're not ready, they're not ready.
  5. You might as well give the first 2 games another crack (or at least a polish) and just bundle all 5 in a Switch remaster. I'd love if after Return comes out (or ideally, and this is a stretch, before?) we got a nice beautiful High-def widescreen collection of the entire series. Man....that'd be nice. I'd call it The Monkey Island Years: Remastered Collection, or something like that.
  6. Looking at the key art again, something clicked for me in regards to some discussion about whether the Secret will be revealed or not. There's been some talk about perhaps Guybrush finding out, which closes out his arc, but that we the audience aren't privy to that information. This is not dissimilar from the briefcase in Pulp Fiction, and I believe that the chest Guybrush opens (which glows) in the artwork is potentially an analog for that.
  7. I've long hoped since Tales finished that the next game would be a big finale that had a sense of closure around the series, given the ambiguous nature of its future throughout the years. While I understood the motive behind keeping things open for the next person, I think it's best to make a satisfying ending where you're ok with it being the last in case the series remains dormant afterwards.
  8. That'll be the new "never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game" at the end of this one
  9. Yep, that sums up my thoughts about that whole thing nicely. It's sad, but I refuse to let it damper my personal enjoyment of the game. Bring it on!
  10. Or perhaps the Memoirs of Guybrush Yeetwood? ...I'll see myself out.
  11. Crazy theory time: what if it's another Guybrush? He says "there can be only one" and just yeets him
  12. Clearly Guybrush will be investigating Republic trade routes and blockades. I move for a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Valorum...er...I mean...Herman Toothrot's leadership
  13. I just had a terrible thought...what if this means Elaine dies?!
  14. I wouldn't mind if people weren't so rude and dramatic about it. People saying shit like Ron's ruined his own creation and that they wish this game never happened. I don't get it, I really don't.
  15. I purposefully went to sleep before the Direct because I figured I'd jinx it by staying up to watch it live, but then I couldn't sleep so I whipped my phone out and was so happy to see it's here! Gosh, it looks amazing! So much better in motion (though I was already on board). It really feels epic, like this is gonna be the Monkey Island games to end all Monkey Island games. I'm so glad to see that the whole "one character isn't returning" thing was a definitely a classic Ron Gilbert bit about Jojo too And what's more, it looks like we're getting even more returning characters than initially thought! Hopefully that doesn't backfire, that they're used correctly and we get equally good new characters...but in Ron and Dave I trust. Goodness, it's all too much to take in! That storybook shot at the beginning looks like it might be that recap Dave mentioned in an interview...curious that there's an image of what is unmistakably Morgan and Elaine fighting from Tales...very curious indeed. It's amazing that we've seen so much tantalizing imagery and yet still clueless: that's a good trailer! Still no date, which is disapponting but hopefully we shall know more soon. One last thing: if that's the theme, holy cow what an epic new arrangement. Ok, that's it for now, just had to get this stream of conciousness out of my system before I go back to bed. MONKEY ISLAND IS BACK BABY!
