    Interesting. Monkey Island is brilliant

    best news ever (although 2 was my favourite)

    Yay, monkey island! Guybrush Threepwood

    I still remember the Settings screen and the "3D option" when you used to click on this to enable the 3D Guybrush would say to you. "Yes it would be nice, or you wish" or something like that, it was hillarious.

    Days of Tentancles was amazing as well

    loved all the monkey island games, although the last one was a bit ropey and not as funny,
    still chuckle at the possible dialogue options you could use, 'where do babies come from' being a most inappropriate response to one situation.

    i still got a sealed copy of that for the PC, i have never gotten around to playin it...

    Hmmm, pretty overhyped game belonging to a more or less dead genre...


    Yes, I still hold a grudge against them for not releasing the series on the Atari ST.

    Dont even bother with the 'they did a bit of bablyon 5 on an Amiga' talk, the atari 520 stE was superior in many ways, not least because I owned one.

    Why would you want to play on xbox when its easy on PC?

    i was the proud owner of an Amiga 1200 (with external floppy disc drive;-))
    Loved it,
    My mates ST always used to break down (once found him using it to prop a door open!:whistling:)

    We had far better demos than that.

    The Lost Boys ftw

    and who can forget Unlimited Matricks....:thumbsup:

    Ah yes, fond memories of the Amiga 1200

    The Amiga could have been an Atari product if Jack Tramiel hadn't tried to be such a greedy ******.

    Unless you were into music production the Amiga will always be head and shoulders above the ST.

    At last the 360 gets the cutting edge game it deserves.......:giggle:........In all serious though this could be the most exciting 360 announcement ever, Monkey Island is one of my fav games of all time.

    Oh and guys, sorry but seriously the Amiga wiped the floor with the ST for everything but sound, fact!

    "Look behind you, a three-headed monkey!", "How appropriate, you fight like a cow",

    Cant wait, wonder what if anything they will add to it?

    Episodic, made by Telltale and none of the original staff (i.e. the all important Tim Schafer), sounds **** to me!

    The sam and max episodes arent that bad, its better than nowt as they say !

    iNSOMANiAC;5374576

    arent that bad



    Said it all right there :thumbsup:, they're not that good either. Certainly can't hold a candle to the original. I just feel if that is the best they can do then they may as well not bother, it's obviously cashing in on nostalgia rather than actually trying to create something which stands up to the original.

    Maybe your rose tinted glasses are just a bit steamed up, gameplay wise the new episodes are superior to the old ones, the writing isnt quite as sharp but you never know, season 2 might just perfect it !

    With games like that it's the writing that makes or breaks them, the interface isn't so important imho.

    Wow never heard of any of the games in OP. Lol.
