New Monkey Island Games!

Have I mentioned how much Telltale Games rocks lately?

From all the same guys who made the originals comes the Tales of Monkey Island! Just like “Sam and Max” and “Strong’s Bad Cool Game for Attractive People,” it’s five new mini-adventure games released in episodes for the PC and Wii. The only guy who isn’t back is the creator Ron Gilbert. He’s making a game called “Death Spank” right now.

As an added bonus: LucasArts is re-releasing a Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition for X-Box with new graphics, voices, interface, music, and the ability to switch between graphic modes during game-play.

This is a good day for Monkey Island fans.

    Those Sam and Max ones seemed kind of crappy. Although they were probably intended for a much younger audience than the people who played the original.

    With all the presidential decapitations and demonic rituals? What kind of kids live in your neighborhood?

    The first season of Sam and Max episodes had it’s moments but I got bored of the second season pretty quickly and never finished it, sometimes it just seemed wacky for the sake of “lol pretty wacky eh!!1”

    I can’t agree with that one either. I thought the second season was tied together a lot better than the first season. Even the random nonsense served as relevant plot points or puzzle solutions in later episodes.

    What qualifies as “lol pretty wacky” with Sam and Max anyway? It’s hard to set a standards bar with these guys.

    Old computers were the best! I long for the good old days of DOS when I switched floppy disks every time I walked into a new room. Back then, games tested your dedication!
