I'm all for the idea of monkey island being on the next cd, but i never played the first 2 monkey island games that much. i dont think i will like the song that wily mentioned on the main page because i tend to prefer songs that i recognize. i want to suggest doing the main theme instead (or in addition to) the song wily mentioned because it's been used in all 4 monkey island games and i feel it is more recognizable, both to me and many others.

EDIT: out of curiousity.... if its reggae metal, does mario know how to play the steel drums?

Trust us dude. It'll be great.

Hopefully you'll like our arrangement so much you'll instantly download MI2 and play it, which would be great. Cause everyone needs to play MI2. It's pretty much the best game ever made. Anyone who's played it will agree with me (or suggest Sam N Max)

ive played them before, but ive just played 3 and 4 more than 1 and 2, so i dont think id recognize the song you mentioned. i just think the main theme which was the same in all 4 games would be more fun to listen to. id probably like whatever MI song you pick anyway, id just prefer the theme.

somewhat unrelated: wasnt there supposed to be 5 MI games? i never beat the 4th one so i dont know how it ended, but i heard somewhere there were supposed to be 5.

I'm registering merely to express my enthusiasm for metal covers of Monkey Island. Not only is that series probably my favorite of all time, but it also had some of the best music in a game I've heard anywhere.

Yes, gods yes.

abandonware?

Does that make it so I can play Mac games on my PC?

IE: I could play DinoPark again?

I use to play that from 6-8th grade....cuz we only had macs....I'd love to do that again

I'm with Sam N Max. But MI2 was delicious, even though I don't recall much :P

I just recently played through Monkey Island 2 twice...I love that game. I love all Tim Scafer's point and click adventures, actually. The music is going to rock like crazy.

Well, I saw an old clip from a magazine where someone from LucasArts said they were making sequels to Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, and Sam and Max. But now that Tim Schafer has left LucasArts and formed his own studio, I don't know if that's reliable.

ive never played grim fandango. i want to. PM me if you know where to find it.

and i hope they make monkey island 5. i played 1 for a few hours. same with 2. played straight through 3 and most of 4. 3 was the best so far, IMO, but i need to play 1 and 2 a bit more. the 3d graphics of 4 just didnt seem to fit the feel of the game...

I'm sort of an afficiando on the subject. Heh.

The original Monkey Island and its sequel were helmed by Ron Gilbert who went on to start his own company to make children's adventure games (Freddi Fish and the like). The third (my favorite) was made by Tim Schafer with the fourth being by the guys behind Sam N' Max.

As for a fifth MI game, I doubt it. Lucasarts has pretty much abandoned the genre and most of the talent from their golden age have left to start their own companies. After they cancelled Full Throttle 2 and Sam N' Max: Freelance Police, that pretty much put the nail in the coffin.

i would sell both testicles for monkey island 5. and the disc im missing from monkey island 3. monkey island 3 was ony of my favorite video games ever. another complaint about 4 aside from the 3d graphics taking away the "feel" that 3 had, is that it wasnt exactly point and click. moving guybrush by just clicking was fun, but then escape from monkey island used the arrow keys. that took away even more of the charm.

Lick hot oil vat.
guybrush: hmmm... that would hurt.

grab thorn bush.
guybrush: AAAHHH! PAPAPISHU!

"TASTE COLD STEEL, FEEBLE CANNON RESTRAINT ROPE!"

"I dont want to disembowel poor wally..."

"can i call you bob?"
"you may call me MURRAY!"

god i love that game. id totally sell my soul for another one.
