  1. Some days I have really strong ears, yet I'm often asking people to repeat themselves in my old age...of 28 πŸ˜‚ Monkey Island Heardle #363 πŸ”ŠπŸŸ©β¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  2. What do we reckon are the chances of a shadow drop of the third Tall Tale on Talk Like a Pirate Day?
  3. For those who prefer the more classic look I whipped up a more traditional SeMI logo. Do with it what you will
  4. 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 πŸ‘• I beat #MojoleXtreme #535 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’š πŸ’›πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’š πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  5. The first second is literally impossible, but after that it was easy Monkey Island Heardle #347 πŸ”‰β¬›οΈπŸŸ©β¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  6. And Herman. At this point in the timeline, he's probably suffering from Amnesia already
  7. Monkey Island Heardle #319 πŸ”‰πŸŸ₯🟩⬜️⬜️⬜️⬜️ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  8. 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 πŸ˜…
  9. This is pretty much the opposite of my Heardle result πŸ‘• I beat #MojoleXtreme #483 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 5/6 πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ–€ πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’š πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ–€ πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ–€ πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  10. Pfft, you gotta try harder than that to beat me Monkey Island Heardle #300 πŸ”ŠπŸŸ©β¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈβ¬œοΈ #MonkeyIslandHeardle
  11. πŸ‘• I beat #MojoleXtreme #471 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’š πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’š πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  12. 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.
  13. Here's my list. I don't think any are outright dreadful, and I changed crummy to average.
  14. So we know the cast is returning and that sadly Ron wasn't involved, but is ANYONE from the old guard involved in writing/design? That's probably the one thing that slightly worries me, though it's not like this is a full blown new adventure game with no familiar names attached, so I'm probably more lenient on it in that area.
  15. LOL so I watched a reaction video to the trailer and as soon as the Lucasfilm logo popped up they said "they're doing a Star Wars crossover with Sea of Thieves?" πŸ˜‚
  16. Wow, I didn't think we'd get new MI content this soon...is this the fastest turnaround since Secret to LeChuck's Revenge? Very cool that all the voice cast is back, and I've read that there WILL be point and click puzzles. This will bring a lot of new eyes to the series that hadn't even heard of it before, which can only mean more good things for the series going forward. Your move, Skunkape I just hope that I'll actually be able to play it because I tried to play the standard Sea of Thieves and couldn't get off the first island without getting shot πŸ˜‚
  17. I believe they're tricking scummvm into thinking they're playing the Italian version of the game by adding that one in first, then replacing certain files with the english one and that makes it skip the song.
  18. That comment reminds me of this sketch by Aunty Donna
  19. Just to make most of you feel ancient, I was born 3 years before Mojo, the year Full Throttle and The Dig came out πŸ˜‚ I think I discovered Mojo in the years between Escape and Tales, then officially joined the community along with the Telltale forums when that was announced, so a decent length but not as long as others. It really is THE site for Lucasarts fandom, whether it's the articles or the forums, and the amount of pure passion, humour and dedication over the years is truly something to behold. It's also managed to be free of toxicity over the years which in itself is a triumph; you don't see the kind of division in discourse that seems to occur daily in the Star Wars fandom. Here's to many more years here, even when we're all in a retirement home playing Monkey Island 10 and The Dig 3
  20. This game makes me question my intelligence Eep ook ack! I failed at #Mojole #318. πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€ πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ’› πŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ–€ πŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ’› πŸ–€πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ–€ πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ–€πŸ’› https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  21. It wouldn' surprise me if Craig Derrick was trying to get a Maniac Mansion remaster off the ground after the success of Return to Monkey Island. He's always been quite vocal about wanting to ressurect that IP. I'd like to think that the rest of the non-talkies will get their moment in the sun with modern updates and voice-overs before they get their boxed editions. That's the dream I guess haha.
  22. It could also be an extra layer meant to cast doubt on what is truly real and that whatever the REAL secret is, that is what fell out of the scrapbook. This is assuming that you interpret the ending of the game as Guybrush embellishing the truth to his son.
  23. I thought about another layer of unreliable narration in Return. We have the real events, Guybrush's retelling, Boybrush's interpretaion, but then we have his friends who play with him. I kinda like the idea of the more bizarre plot threads that get ignored here (like Grandpa Herman or the robot monkey) are ideas they had. Do you remember being a kid and sometimes having this one friend who was a bit of an outcast, and sometimes had ideas for your game that you thought were silly, but your parents would remind you to be nice and make them feel included so you begrudgingly indulged them? That could be an interesting read on things.
  24. Cue a new team doing exactly that with 30 more years of people going "that's not what Ron would've done" πŸ˜‚
  25. I relate to what you're saying, because what I said earlier in this thread was very close to what you're feeling atm. What I came around to is, the game is deliberately making reality and fiction blurred and ultimately putting the decision into your hands as to what is real and what isn't. For me, yes, the world of Monkey Island is a theme park, but I don't really side with the more bleak interpretation that Guybrush is hallucinating, suffering a psychosis, etc. I prefer to think of the Monkey Island world, both the theme park, and the outside world where Boybrush plays with his friends, as a place where anything becomes possible. In the case of the theme park, it's magical, and all those animatronics come to life as long as they continue to live inside the park.That's why LeChuck and Lila cease to be real people once they go through the door to the Secret. That is ultimately the true triumph Guybrush has and forever will have over LeChuck; he is fated to be contained within the park and never live outside while Guybrush can leave with Elaine, have a family, and share stories of his adventures. When seen through this lense, not only does the Secret not really matter to the overall experience, but neither does dwelling over what is real and what isn't. The lines are blurred, we can all be right because there is no definitive answer, and we can keep talking about it forever. The next game is now free to be a simple pirate adventure unburdened by the Secret and no longer beholden to any true vision. Ron I think has surrendered the series to us and to the people who kept the series alive in his absence. To me, not only could Guybrush be us now and Boybrush be us when we first played the series, but from another viewpoint Guybrush is Ron and Boybrush is every other dev who has worked on the series; Ackley, Ahern, Stemmle, Clarke, Jake, whoever comes next, taking the original story and adding their own spin, like the kids playing out the adventures. Looked at like that, it only makes the series more beautiful and rewarding to go back to. I totally get it if you still feel the same way after reading this, but this is just my two cents as someone who was in a very similar positon upon seeing the ending for the first time.
