Somehow totally missed these news a couple of days ago. One of the 3 best games ever created and one of the 3 games that I have the most nostalgia for during my long life of gaming is rumored to be on its way to Xbox Live Arcade. I´m totally speechless if this turns out to be true. This is without a doubt the best downloadable news ever this generation together with the release of Doom if this turns out to be true. The first game with Guybrush Threepwood has such a huuuge huuuge place in my heart that the thought of playing through it again in some kind of updated form and for points is totally unbelievable.  The Monkey Island series was a huge factor in my younger gaming years and pretty much sparked my unhealthy addiction for anything pirate related.
According to the news story we can experct more news on E3. I am suddenly more excited for this than probably any other game set to be released this year now. This is about as good as a game can get for me and hearing this makes the nostalgia in me totally overflow. I´m really glad that there are more people out there remembering this game and the value it has.
Wow.. my day is made. I am comitting to 200/200 achievement points right now, no matter what I need to do. Anything else would leave me sleepless at night.
