Really, I felt like I had to make a thread like this. Maybe it was done back when Launch of the Screaming Narwhal was released, I dunno, but I felt like it could be done again now in a restrospect looking at Tales of Monkey Island as a whole.
Who here loves the marquis? I sure do love the marquis.
I really hated the character when I first ran into him in ep 1, but he grew so darn much on me throughout the course of playing through each new episode that was released. After finishing ep 5 I realised I really missed him. The over the top french accent, the hysteric plots and schemes, the zany laboratory and the amazing theme tune written by Michael Land. De Singe, along with the brotherhood living inside of the manatee in Lair of the Leviathan, really take me back to the old LucasArts days with all oddball whacky stuff that would get thrown into the game. I don't know if it's just me, but everytime I see De Singe speak on-screen I imagine all the characters and dialouge the pixel-ish style of MI2. (If you haven't you should try. He could might aswell be character from that game!) Alot of De Singe moments really felt like old-school adventure game antics.
I was suprised both in a good and bad way when De Singe turned out to just be a minor villian in the end of all things (I missed him, but I do love LeChuck quite a bit more after all) :P But still, he feels so 'mazingly memorable, and I think everyone at Telltale did a really great job at creating him. He kicks Largo LeGrande, Rottingham and Ozzy Mandrills butt fo sure if there was ever a minor-monkey-villian contest.
So, this thread here is for everyone who loves the crazy Marquis De Singe.
May he rest in peace.
