  1. Grim's soundtrack is one of the many examples of LucasArts games not having to go THAT hard, but doing it anyway, and being all the better for it. Seriously, beyond being fun games, they're just so damn rich in artistry. So good to hear these live renditions.
  2. The thing about the "original intent" is...there wasn't one, and couldn't be. Ron Gilbert never started working on how that ending would be resolved until Return was a reality and development started on that game. He made the ending, and didn't think about how to "resolve" it, that could be a fun problem for him to solve later when he made the third one...or as happened in reality, for the Curse team to solve. I think that over the years, Ron has built excitement for a hypothetical third game by making bold claims about having the story in his head for years, possibly also thinking that it was such a pipe dream he could say whatever he wanted. It's only once Disney gave him the green light that he realised he would have to actually come up with something, and imo it's nothing short of a miracle that he was able to come up with something so clever and in spirit with everything that came before, but that's another discussion. He's alluded to this in interviews, but I don't think we realise how much Ron kinda forgot about Monkey Island on some level in the years since he left LucasArts because we're fans and we're almost more close to it than he is in some respects. He didn't spend his nights over the last 30 years pondering what he would do with that ending, that's just not the sort of person he is, at least with what we can glean from his limited public persona. That's just my take anyhow, I'm also not someone who buys into the all knowing auteur idea. Most creative works are people winging it, and that is not intended to minimise the art that is created, if anything it shows how incredible it is that any art is any good at all.
  3. Some days I have really strong ears, yet I'm often asking people to repeat themselves in my old age...of 28 😂 Monkey Island Heardle #363 🔊🟩⬜️⬜️⬜️⬜️⬜️ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  4. What do we reckon are the chances of a shadow drop of the third Tall Tale on Talk Like a Pirate Day?
  5. For those who prefer the more classic look I whipped up a more traditional SeMI logo. Do with it what you will
  6. If I hadn't put the same letter in its yellow spot twice like the big old (not) bed-wetting doodey head I am this could've been a 2 guess win 👕 I beat #MojoleXtreme #535 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 🖤🖤💛🖤🖤💚 💛🖤💛💛💛💚 💚💚💚💚💚💚 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  7. The first second is literally impossible, but after that it was easy Monkey Island Heardle #347 🔉⬛️🟩⬜️⬜️⬜️⬜️ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  8. And Herman. At this point in the timeline, he's probably suffering from Amnesia already
  9. Monkey Island Heardle #319 🔉🟥🟩⬜️⬜️⬜️⬜️ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  10. I got kicked out overnight and had to start over, I've now made more progress this morning so I hope I don't have to do it all again 😅
  11. This is pretty much the opposite of my Heardle result 👕 I beat #MojoleXtreme #483 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 5/6 🖤🖤💛🖤💛🖤 🖤🖤🖤💛💛💚 🖤🖤💛💛💛🖤 💛💚🖤🖤💛🖤 💚💚💚💚💚💚 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/

  14. I think there might be something wrong with me, because I just didn't like it. I felt like a large stretch of it was kinda just going through the motions, certain characters were wasted and the third act was one of the most monumentally stupid things I've ever seen. Maybe at the end of the day it just felt like it was too late to do another one of these, idk. I'm glad there seem to be a decent amount of audiences liking to loving it, but for whatever reason it's just not clicking with me. Time will see if my opinion changes someday.
  15. Here's my list. I don't think any are outright dreadful, and I changed crummy to average.
