  1. Something like 1993. I was about 4, and My uncle [These guys must have some kind of "Monkey Island introducing" cult. So many of us were introduced by our uncles!] Anyway, I was watching my Cousin play my Uncle's computer one day, and I remeber being intrigued by the name "Monkey Island". My earliest memory of it is seeing those Monkies running across the screen at the start of Monkey Island 2. The other images that stuck in my mind were the interior of Largo's hotel, and the moment were there is a flash of lightning as Guybrush hold up the bone of Largo's relative. Priceless. My Uncle also introduced me to a lot of other Lucasarts games. I have distinct memories of being introduced to DOTT, Sam and Max and Indianna Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, in that order. Anyway, these games were nothing but intriguing memories for about 10 years, as I existed without adventure games. However, one day to my great surprise I found a copy of EMI for loan at my local library. Remembering the game that had interested me so long ago, I decided to try it out. What did I have to lose? Needless to say, I was captivated. I immediatly bought CMI, loved that even more, and then aquired MI1 and MI2. I even found a talkie double disc of Sam and Max/Day of the Tentacle at a garge sale for $2. Long story short, I've been very fortunate.
  2. Wow, I started this thread about three years ago. ...And it lives on [sniffs back tear. Becomes sentimental.] Is this a record or something? Any way, I'm now more indecisive than I was three years ago, and my ranking is thus; 1. SMI, LCR and CMI 2. EMI I like this order the best.
  3. I heard somewhere that Lucasarts had decided not to give Bioware control of the sequel. Just a rumour, but that would stink. I was thinking that it could be set a few years after the first one and part of it could be searching for your old team eg. Zaalbar and mission are on Kashyyyk, Candorous is busy blowing stuff up, Carth is on Telos etc. I don't mean make that the whole game, just do it with the plot, like the first one.
  4. Technically it was my turn, but you guys must be bored waiting for my reply. I'll just post my smiles again. It's not Resident Evil or Raiders of the lost ark. And now some more hints... ..and... this guy isn’t dead. The movie is recent. (It might be a while before I reply, because I’m having trouble logging in)
  5. Believe it or not, I've actually never seen alien yet I guessed it straight away... spooky. (Note to everyone: This was my first ever use of smilys! I suddenly feel the urge to use weird abreviations that no-one understands and use multiple exclamation marks. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
  6. That's it! When I was starting this thread, I knew there was a terrible movie I had forgotten. How could I forget that piece of monkey crap? I had too sit through it a couple of weeks ago. I didn't think it was humanly possible to make a movie that stinks that bad. What's even more disturbing is that a group of people actually decidied to invest their time into sculpting this doorstop of a movie, somehow under the delusion that it was funny and watchable. I can just see the producers sitting around their little conference table... Head Executive Guy: We need to make a movie that people will remember, that people will want to see again. We need something that will make people laugh, make them cry, but also make them think. Gentlemen, we need to make a movie that's different. Questionably Stupid Executive Guy: I know! We could make a romantic comedy about the relationship between a man and a woman! Head Executive Guy: Wow! What a fresh new angle! Questionably Stupid Executive Guy: ...And we could have some twist that stops the man and woman from loving each other... Head Executive Guy: I'm lovin' it! Questionably Stupid Executive Guy: ... and in the end... Head Executive Guy: Yeah? Questionably Stupid Executive Guy: ... the man and woman end up together anyway! Head Executive Guy: My god! Completely Out Of Place Intelligent Executive: Do you know what I think we should make? Head Executive Guy: A movie that's different? Completely Out Of Place Intelligent Executive: A different movie! We don't need this crap! We're Paramount! We've got Indiana Jones 4, Beverly Hills cop 4, a new Star Trek movie; I mean, we're covered! Head Executive Guy: You're fired! Alright, I confess. I was hiding under the table during the meeting, and that's word for word! Seriously, I hate romantic comedies! Pretty much the only good romantic comedy ever is "A fish called Wanda" ,because John Cleese wrote and stared in it, and so did Michael Palin... Monty Python Rule! (By the way, no-one try to tell me Monty Python suck, because I won't listen. I just love Monty Python) Back to the point... I hate How to lose a guy in 10 days. Thank you. (I really hate that movie) P.S: I’ve been waiting for about two weeks to post. I couldn’t log in!?
  7. This is kind of like the thread I posted about bad games, but I'm not repeating myself. Post your comments about really bad films you've seen, and hopefully there won't be too many people murderously opposed to your opinion. Some of the worst movies I’ve ever seen are The Grinch (I don't think I even have to mention what went wrong there) and Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone. Don't get me wrong, I like Harry Potter books, and the second film was pretty good, but something about little wieners whose voices haven't broken, running around in a script that's painstakingly long yet annoyingly brief made it so hard for me to stay awake... no wait. I didn't. I post more bad movies as I think of them, and hopefully you will too.
  8. C'mon! Series 8 wasn't that bad! As a matter of fact, it had some of the funniest stuff ever out of the entire show! Tell me you didn't laugh when Kryten bailed all the officers into the bathroom, and at gunpoint, told them: "I want you to pull down you're pants and sit on a toilet" "Then what are you going to do?" "I'm going to look at you!" Seriously, just because you've decided that 7th and 8th series were irrelivant, doesn't mean that everyone thinks that... although the ending was ****house... dam...

  10. I don't know about that. His newest ones, "Joe Momma" and "gerbil in a lightsocket" were up there with the best. And "Lament for toad" was dam funny. "the boss" is pretty cool, and "James Brain" was funny. Does anyone know anywhere where you can download Joe cartoons (other than Atomfilms)?
  11. Has anyone ever been to http://www.joecartoon.com ? It's this guy who does lots of funny cartoon animations, most of which involve doing cruel things to gerbils (not real, animated. I'm not some kind of sicko who enjoys seeing real animals killed). He has been around for years, and i'd advise anyone going there for the first time to watch "Micro Girbil 2001" first. Post back your comments about his cartoons.
  12. I didn't read that one. Xbox magazine gave Blinx 9.3/10, though i'm not sure why. And Icon gave it 5/5 for some reason.
  13. Really? In Australia just about every review I saw of it gave it 10/10. Crazy. Maybe our reviewers had their eyes closed?
  14. Yay! Red Dwarf! I have no idea what it's doing in a MI forum, but who's complaining? 001111100100111011- When, roughly translated, says "Don't stand around gabbering when you're in mortal danger" "This 'sexual magnetism' drug is very fasinating, and as a responsible captain, it's imperative that I get hold of it, and try some myself" Has anyone read that Robert Llewellyn (Kryten) book "the man in the rubber mask"? It's basically a behind the scenes book in a novel structure, and lets you know just how uncomfortable that mask is. He has to sit in makeup 5 hours every morning, and every scene he does, it's a new mask.
  15. Run, Mr.Burger! You're not safe! Quick! Hide in this blender! *Mr.Burger jumps in blender, crazed, twitching, slightly psychotic Mr.Lukie presses the little red button with "on" printed in bold* MMU-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! There's only room for one "Mr" here! seriously though, what did you find was wrong with it? Another bad game was "Blinx: the time sweeper". I was stupid and listened to the reviewers... silly me.
  16. My favourite islands were Plunder Island and Blood/Skull island. I liked Plunder because it has so many interesting places to go, and funny characters to meet. You spend a lot of time there, whereas in LCR you have what I call "Throwaway islands". (Don't get me wrong, I loved LCR, but some of the islands just didn't have enough on them). I liked Blood island for mainly the same reasons as Plunder, and Skull island because... It's a duck!
  17. No, I don't think so. It was the one that was a [poor excuse for a] Real time strategy. The graphics were really blurry, and you had to collect dinosaur eggs to hatch minions of dinos. *shudder* I don't want to think about it any more. Another bad one was Lord of the rings: The Fellowship of the ring. the one that was based on the book, but released at the same time as the movie. Not only was it a complete let-down to the book, but it was also about as fun as self mutilation. *shudder again* I don't want to think about that, either.
  18. This thread is to hear from everyone about what the worst game you've ever played is. It doesn't matter what the game is, or who made it. If it's terrible, post it! I didn't know where to post this, because the harbour isn't there anymore (?). The worst game i've ever played is Jurrasic Park: Chaos island. I borrowed it from a friend, and after I played it, I immediately gave it back. The graphics were so bad, and it was next to impossible to play. Post your worst games below.
  19. Is Chris Barrie in that?! I love Red Dwarf! I'll have to get hold of that right away. Thanks, I didn't know that.
  20. Another good one is the "That night before" series. They are ametuer games developed by a guy called scurvyliver (Fate of Monkey island, anyone?) who created them soley so they could be downloaded, so don't think they're pirated or anything. They are very funny, and have a few references to Monkey Island in them. You can download all 4 episodes at http://www.scurvyliver.com
  21. I posted this on a completely different thread, so I thought i'd put it as the subject of a new one. I thought the way they made Herman explain away plotholes was faulty, mainly because it created more plotholes. I mean, the way Herman explains it, he was sent down a whirlpool by ozzie in a boat race. But in CMI when you're asking Lechuck about what happened to all the crew, he says he sent H.T Marly down a whirlpool, who is supposedly Herman according to EMI. Is it possible that Herman was sent down two completely different whirlpools? Or maybe Herman was part of a cloning program? Or is it possible that the plothole became so big it resembled a whirlpool? And the whole Herman being H.T Marley thing. According to Herman, he made his name from the initials on an accordian. But in SMI, the diary is clearly marked "Herman Toothrot". Wait! It could have been an alternative version of H.T Marly from a parrallel universe sent to destroy us all! And if Herman was sucked through a whirlpool (one or the other), and that's how he got to monkey island, then how could he have bought a ship from Stan and set sail with that other guy to find "The Secret of Monkey Island tm"? How can this be the same person!! HOW CAN THEY EXPECT US TO SWALLOW THIS CRAP!!! AIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!!!.........................(Slightly obssesive Mr.Lukie gives himself a sedative)....... well, I might have got a bit carried away, but you get my drift. If you have any other theories on how this could be possible, please post them here.
