new controls or bug in chapter 3?

posted by josey on - last edited - Viewed by 92 users

Hi Telltale,

I have tried out chapter 3 yesterday, and I was very irritated. The control scheme is different: In the first two episodes you could click and hold on an object and get the circular menu to choose the action you want. in episode 3 this feature is gone. Is this intended or is this a bug on my side?

it really feels that something is missing in gameplay. it was always so great to just explore all the options with every item or person and to get funny comments. if this was intended, please consider reviving it for the next episode. for me it takes a lot of fun out of the game.

  • Uhm, are you sure you're not thinking about Curse of Monkey Island?

  • I think he means the circular thing that appears around guybrush with the arrow to move.

    Pretty sure it's working though, worked for me

  • oh darn,

    you guys are absolutely right. but I was not mistaken it with "Curse of Monkey Island", but with another adventure I played recently: "The Whispered World". It adapted the control scheme from "MI 3" with the 3 options.

    I really don't know what went wrong in my head, I projected the gameplay experience from Whispered World onto Tales of Monkey Island.

    I guess I was just missing this feature. The interface in Tales is just a tad linear and doesn't give you much options.

    Well then I guess this issue is resolved... ;-) I am sorry for my confusion.

  • I guess if you start playing too many adventure games they all start blurring into one inside your head. Oh wait, what am I saying? There is no such thing as "too many adventure games." ;)

    *facepalm*
    I would have thought the abundance of Chapter 3 threads would have alerted you by now, along with the Blog. I know, and i'm a wiiware buyer, so won't be getting it this month. In fact, i'm beginning my month spoiler avoidance absence again now...

  • I was talking about The Whispered World...

    *double facepalm*

  • I play it in German. I don't think its out yet in other languages. Its very beautiful and both melancholic and funny. I'd definitely recommend it!

  • Great, I look forward to it. You Germans get all the great games early, I wish I didn't stop learning the language. Maybe I should take it up again. :)
