  1. Us in 2009: Tales' setting in the chronology is confusing! Is it MI5 or MI6? Return to Monkey Island: Hold my Grog
  2. Yeah I didn't mention this earlier but I'd also love to see the earlier stuff remastered. Talkie versions of Maniac Mansion, Zak and Last Crusade would rule. Also a full talkie of Loom without the dialog cuts of the CD version should happen if Brian Moriarty gets to complete his trilogy. And why not, do The Dig while you're at it.
  3. Just to clarify, I wasn't intending to speculate on that, in fact my intention was to sqaush that for every reason you said. The last thing I would want to do is belittle Ron, he's a tough cookie I'm sure. For a brief moment I might've worried, but that was simply a projection of how cut up I've been feeling about the backlash and quickly realised there's no way he'd do it.
  4. I really want it to do absolute gangbusters too, just be the absolute triumph for him and the series to finally see it become the financial hit it wasn't in the 90s.
  5. Pretty much agree with all that and I'd add in the option of mouse controls for Escape. I'd really like to see a nice remastered collection like was done with Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, and while they're doing that maybe go back to MI1 and 2 to give them a polish of some rougher spots in the backgrounds and animation, remaster the opening credits of 2, put the stump joke back in voiced by Dom, stuff like that. I really just want as much to be done with the series as possible while the iron is hot. On Fate of Atlantis, we do at least know that Noah Falstein wants nothing to do with a remaster because of the %#*^s bashing Ron. That's really unfortunate, but maybe someone else could still do a good job with it. I'd also love a remaster of Sam & Max Hit the Road, just to complete the set.
  6. It's great to see fans come out in droves to express their love. That's the thing right? They were always there, but people who like stuff don't feel the need to shout it from the rooftops, and are offen scared off by all the fierce negativity. I've seen some concern from people that the game could be cancelled because of this; I don't think so. Even if Ron was remotely thinking about it (again I don't think so, it's clear he's immensely proud of the work he and his team have done), this isn't simply his decision to make, he has Disney and Lucasfilm to answer to, and there's no way they would can a near-complete game they've sunk money into.
  7. I do have it but I couldn't figure out how to do anything and I feel like it'd be more fun if I knew anyone I could play it with.
  8. I think it was Fangamer after it was an exclusive to the Kickstarter.
  9. Took me a second, ngl. Very Monty Python of you
  10. The irony is that I've seen some of the most offensive posters claim that we're the ones in an echo-chamber. What a joke.
  11. I'm so fucking angry about this. "The joy of sharing has been driven from me" that's absolutely heartbreaking. Internet discource is poison.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. That'll be the new "never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game" at the end of this one
  20. 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!
  21. Or perhaps the Memoirs of Guybrush Yeetwood? ...I'll see myself out.
  22. Crazy theory time: what if it's another Guybrush? He says "there can be only one" and just yeets him
  23. 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
  24. I just had a terrible thought...what if this means Elaine dies?!
