Pirates?

#1 Posted by toastychance (2 posts) -

In one of the trailers they showed priates and them gettign onto a boat but i beat the game lo and behold there were no pirates. A little dissapointed at this fact as it was showed off. Maybe it will be dlc. Was just wondering if it was there somewhere and i just missed it or something.

I don't remember seeing pirates in any of the trailers.  Are you sure you're not thinking of Ron Gilbert's other games?

I know what your talking about. I guess some stuff had to get cut but I really wanted to go to that pirate town and get a ship. Here's said trailer. 
  

  The Mountains, the Monastery, The desert, and the Pirate Town... That's a lot gone.

im pretty suer its deathspank unless the other game looks exactly like it. although it does look like an early stage of the game. heres a link to the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLBG78adc60  plus we dont get to go to the whole northeastern part of the map with the beach which looks like where it would of been.

Well, it's clear they're planning DLC and/or a sequel. That stuff could comeback in some form.

I LOVE it when content gets cut from a retail game for the sake of releasing DLC.

This lack of pirates greatly displeases me.

@Chaser324: Well, I dunno. Gilbert left Hothead as if he had done everything he wanted to with the game.

@Mysterysheep:  True, but I wouldn't be surprised if Hothead or EA took the initiative to lock down the rights to DeathSpank before he left.

Maybe he left Hothead to work on an actual pirate themed adventure game that may or may not be of a franchise he's been previously associated with, and didn't want to waste any gags on this game?

@MrKlorox: I'm guessing your not a fan of DeathSpank... He helped form the general plot for Tales. I doubt we're going to see his take on MI3, though.

Guybrush Threpwood will be in the next DeathSpank I heard.
