LeChucks Revenge SE Gets Creator Commentary

As if you weren't gonna buy it already, now we get to hear Ron Gilbert, Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer musing about MI2 in addition to getting to play the game with Dom Armato and Earl Boen. They had to peel me off the ceiling before I posted this

@Kotaku said: The upcoming release of a Monkey Island 2 special edition is special not for the revamped graphics, but for the inclusion of a commentary track featuring the original game's creators: Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, and Dave Grossman.

While it's not the first game to do so - Valve has been dropping them into games for a few years now - it's certainly the most appealing we've seen thus far, with Monkey Island's trio some of the smartest and funniest minds in the industry.

They'll be speaking about both their personal memories making the game and "behind-the-scenes information". The commentary will be accessible via a dedicated game mode when Monkey Island 2: Special Edition is released sometime in the summer.

  • Yeah, it was mentioned in the original press release. It's probably my most anticipated addition in MI2:SE.

  • This is one thing that I can never do with movies: though I'll want to watch with commentary, most of the time I find I just want to re-watch the movie, so I shut off the commentary. I guess I'll just have to do an immediate re-play with commentary when I beat it the first time.
    I can't wait for this!

  • This is actually the only reason for me to buy this game.
    The whole SE stuff, even the voices just don't do it for me.

  • You people should thank LucasArts instead of bashing them.

    You get:

    *The original game for the first time now running on console and Windows.
    *Developer's Commentary
    *Rerecorded Music and sound effects in stunning quality
    *OPTIONAL: Voices for the characters for the original game or SE.
    *Bloody Dominic Armato and Earl Boen!
    *OPTIONAL: Special Edition Graphics
    *Actually listening to fans' suggestions. Fixing Guybrush's hair, the flippin' barbs.

    And you guys whine and complain at graphics and voices they aren't forcing you to look at and listen to. Shame on you guys!

    no one has said anything bad about it on this thread!

    I'm talking about the majority of the posts about MI2SE in this forum.

  • Who's bashing anything?
    This thread contains nothing but praise.

    I like Lucasarts embracing their old franchises again, I just think that the game is perfect the way it is. It's the pixels I fell in love with, and no voices or new graphics are gonna change that.
    I do like the fact that they're making these classics available to mainstream gamers who didn't have 'm back then. And I fully endorse these Special Editions.
    That's why the only thing that I'm really interested in is the audio commentary.

    Edit:

    The you posted in the wrong thread. ;)
    I do agree, some people are nitpicking this game to death.

  • I just wanted to get my thoughts out, and I just happened to be in this thread at the time.
