  1. This game has approximately one infinity little details that are good. I'm going to list a few of the ones I liked here. These are probably bigger things than the main "Details of Monkey Island" thread, because I'm not feeling the need to drill so deep yet, but it's in that spirit: Stuff that didn't need to be there but made me happy or excited me. Not sure how to spoiler tag this so I'll just go whole hog, but if that isn't necessary we can just leave them open?? A thing in the prologue: A cool thing in part 1: A couple good details in part 4: There are many more but there are a few that came to mind when thinking back on my playthrough.
  2. Somehow Monkey Island returned... And we're playing it. I was fortunate enough to be a playtester on the game so I already got to the end a while back. I am extremely eager to discuss the entire game with all of you so I made this thread. I'm guessing it'll take a little while for others to get there but in the meantime this thread is GAME WIDE spoilers. That means ending discussion etc is fair game in here! I'm going to hold off on posting my thoughts for a minute so some others can catch up but... I can't wait. It's been a long few months holy hell.
  3. WARNING: THIS THREAD AND ARTICLE ARE AS SPOILERY AS IT GETS! It turns out that the very end of Return gets pretty ragged and frayed; the different things you do in the final few scenes can tip the games conclusion and epilogue in many directions. Mojo has compiled all the ones they’ve found so far and it’s already a whopping ten variations. That article is a great writeup of what’s currently known about the different endings and epilogues including full video capture of all of them and how to get them. (Pour one out for the Mojo staffers who watched the entire credit sequence dozens of times to tease all these endings out and then verify how they are reached!)
  4. There are a few hidden interactions in the game (ie. things you can do that have no UI clue/mouseover tip whatsoever), which makes me think there might be even more. I wonder if you guys have found some. Here are a the ones I know of: Mele Island (3): Taking Guybrush on the map where Meathook island, Fetuccini brothers' Circus (clearing) and the House were located in Monkey 1 will trigger Guybrush comments LeShip (1): Wally's shackles on the deck High Street end game (2): Positionning Guybrush behind the photocall stand will add yet another nice photo to your collection. Placing Guybrush at the church entrance and he'll ask Elaine if they could renew their vows and she says "maybe another time". There has to be more!
  5. Hello there, I have beaten twice this game (still loving it), and I am trying to slowly get all of the achievemtents (still missing a lot, but hey) However, one REALLY scares me: the speedrunner achievements to finish the game in less than two hours. Can any of you give me tips on what to do and reduce as much time as possible across the game? I am not even sure I can reach Monkey Island in less than two hours!
  6. There's a 'Make one serious prediction' thread in the main forum, and obviously we can't leave spoilers there, so how about we talk about them here, and any other genuine predictions we might have made over the course of the pre-release. Mine from that thread was: The carnival/child Guybrush is in SOME sense real ✅ , and the 'real' guybrush we're playing now is genuinely grown up. ✅ As is the brother thing, that's also real. ❌ It might not be quite what we imagined, but it's also not going to be 'actually nah that was all just a spell that LeChuck put on you'. ✅ The opening of the game will address this, but it'll be revisited at the end too. ✅ In another thread I said: As we journey through the carnival we see attractions that mirror different parts of monkey island games (✅ not as many as I thought, but it's in there) and as Guybrush's imagination wanders, the world slowly morphs back into his pirate fantasy (❌) We see an older guybrush taking his own kids to the carnival (✅ I'm definitely giving myself this one) which has become more run down since he last visited (🌓 I'm giving myself half marks for this one. It is more run down than it looked but not since he last visited). And he reminisces (✅), which triggers something like the above (❌ not really, it just goes straight into the game) We see wizards of oz style real-world versions of characters from the MI universe at the carnival (❌) Also you know what, I'm going to take this comment I made about my above predictions and call it a hit too: "Also I think there's perhaps a way for all the stuff I said to happen without it necessarily *simply* meaning that it's all Guybrush's fantasy but I don't want to get into it right now" ✅ (Basically, I had a strong feeling in two directions: that the carnival ending wasn't simply LeChuck's curse, firstly. I never understood the impulse to just write it into nothing, like that. And secondly that the straight 'guybrush's childhood fantasy' read of it didn't quite account for everything and that while it was closer to the truth, it would be complicated somewhat by what we actually get.) I am OKAY with that hit rate and yes I did create this post just to tell you all how clever I am I'm wondering how YOU think you did.
