I really hate Elaine in the ending sequence (SPOILER)

She always has a plan????? What this plan was???
That's a bad screenplay joke, Telltale....
It ruins all the plot. :(

I don't even think that anyone at Telltale knows what plan she has on... it's just an bad excuse to create some suprise, but it totally fails....

If this is the help that Ron gave you about Elaine's role (as you said in an early interview)... better leave him home next time.

Another enigma to solve in the Monkey Island universe.... I'm getting bored with these tricks.

Being propositive: change the latest lines of the game and re-release an updated version, with longer and corrected ending sequence.

Bye!

    Elaine had me wondering when you kept trying to return to the land of the living and kept killing you with root beer. I thought she was up to something when she said "Yessss" in that voice, but it was wasn't clear what and I was confused how she could know how being undead worked.

  • When she's a Demon Bride and blasting you with that voodoo root beer, it's pretty obvious she's not all there.

    Honestly, I don't think she entirely knows how being undead works. I mean, LeChuck has come back often enough that she's probably very aware that one can come back, but probably not the specifics.

    well a lot was happening and she did zap him 2 and after the morgan pep talk I think he relised

  • @Sailorcuteness said: well a lot was happening and she did zap him 2 and after the morgan pep talk I think he realised

    he never realised till elaine told him at the end, but at least it gave him a reason to fight lechuck, to save elaine, plus the talk he gave before morgan began talking to him was sad, also its my favourite episode of the series despite all the walking to get your body back and keep it.

    its my fav episode 2

    As far as Ron Gilbert is concerned, props to the man who created Monkey Island but I believe that though he claims to have had an MI3 game in mind, he never even started creating it. Not to mention that the end of MI2 was full of the weirdness factor that would befit Sam & Max. I personally think that he was just saying that he was planning on making an MI3 himself, just to give himself a bit of props, though the end of MI2 is bizarre and random enough to suggest he never even considered it. Besides, I love Curse. For ages, it was my favorite game (though TMI gives it a run for it's money.)

    You never let a chance for a little MI2/Ron Gilbert bashing slip past you, do you? ;)

    Speaking of going completely off topic, do you work as a Chyron operator?

  • You're half right. The ending to Monkey 2 may be slightly weird, but it's not full of the weirdness factor. I was able to make perfect sense of it.

  • I think TTG should make Elaine the villian of TMI sesion 2 she was a great villian as LeChucks bride. It could be like Jean Grey/Dark Pheniox type story where the evil Elaine wants power and the good Elaine wants Guybrush. And it could show Guybrush dealing with stopping her saving the world and trying to save Elaine from herself.

  • Hmm, I don't really hate Elaine, but I think the whole master plan thing doesn't really fit into the concept of the first 4 episodes. The only two persons who seem to have a plan, were LeChuck and the Voodoo Lady, and from the reactions of the voodoo lady I tend to believe, that she doesn't know what will happen as well.

    I think the whole Demon Bride thing made more sense, if she was forced to be LeChucks demon bride. Giving in to be a demon, hopping that Guybrush will save her is not very clever, but I think that Telltale has more adventures of Monkey Island to tell and that we have not seen all possible endings :)...

    I also find the possible Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix storyline quite interesting, though it reminds me of Freedom Force 2, but hell, it was a good game too, and you can not reinvent the wheel all the time.

  • Ok i think everyone is forgetting something about Guybrush's hand returning.
    If you talk to The Voodoo Lady in episode 5 about can Guybrush be revived fully with his hand back. The Voodoo Lady says something saying it is possible for it to happen or something like that and Elaine's ring must of been the thing that revived Guybrush completely.
