Look! A Three-Headed Monkey! 0

Originally posted on my blogI should clarify a few points before I get into the CMI love, namely regarding the series creator, Ron Gilbert, and the last great Lucasarts adventure game, Grim Fandango. Ron left Lucasarts after Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge along with the other writers of the series, Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman. So, as mentioned before, the remaining team members were more or less forced to retcon and/or disregard story put forth by Gilbert, Schafer, and Grossman to further ...

What Rhymes With Orange? 0

Curse of monkey island is the greatest, goofiest, non-sequitorist, underplayediest achievement in point-n-click adventure gaming and the swan song of the golden era of LucasArts. Here's a list of things you will accomplish if you decide to play this game (YOU WILL!)... 1)Learn what a synthetic pirates beard is made of, 2)Become a demon chicken, 3)Toss a rubber tree, 4)Have pieces of dandruff in your inventory, 5)Die, and 6)Learn what word rhymes with Orange (SPOILERS its door-hindge)... If yo...

The Curse of Monkey Island finds the perfect balance between satisfying gameplay and brilliant visuals. Amazingly crafted locations, characters and backgrounds help ...

Guybrush Threepwood's New Look 0

The graphics in The Curse of Monkey Island have been heavily lifted from the previous games, what many of the mature gamers have been accustomed to seeing Guybrush Threepwood's five pixeled face will witness a whole new look in this game. Guybrush's new model is much more fitting to his clumsy-esque character and the artwork faintly reminds so...

The best adventure game of all time...? 0

The Monkey Island series is considered by many people, including myself, as being the best adventure games (or games, for that matter) of all time. That's a big title to hold and if you've played the two previous games in the Monkey Island series, you should pretty much understand why these LucasArts classics got this title. But does the third game, The Curse of Monkey Island, live up to these high expectations?Of course it does! The Curse of Monkey Island sees our hero Guybrush Threepwood propo...
