Grim Fandango easter egg in Special Edition

#1 Posted by The_A_Drain (3930 posts) -

For anyone who missed it, when you are introduced to the underneath of monkey island where the dudes ship is anchored in lava, on one of the rocks to the left of the screen, Manny's face is embedded in the rock :D

Hmm. That's ass backwards. They're supposed to put forward references in Lucasarts games, like the Sam & Max painting in DOTT, "Ask me about Loom" in the original Secret of Monkey Island, and the dead Manny with a badge saying "Ask me about Grim Fandango" in the fried chicken joint in Curse of Monkey Island.

BTW is "Ask me about Loom" dude still in the remake?

No idea, literally had it on for 5 minutes after slogging through Eat Lead on the highest difficulty all day. Got like 3 screens after that and decided my eyes and brain weren't up to the task tonight. I would assume so, would be pretty shitty if he's not.

I just downloaded the trial and it kicked me out when I got into the kitchen... man, I wish I had some points on my account right now. I need to see that easter egg. Hope there are many more.

@ Insectecutor: Yeah, that is backwards, but what is coming up at LucasArts, anyway? Loom dude is still in there and I found it a little weird. Especially, since he refers to the company as LucasFilm Games.

Heh, I didn't spot this, but I did spot that the sam & max idols outside the monkey head have been replaced with a (not-so)purple tentacle idol in the special edition. Hinting for a re-release of day of the tentacle anyone?

Hell yeah! I missed the original and have been wanting to play it, but never getting around to it for years.

Yup, he's still there, and he's looking more beautiful than ever.
