If you see a guy with the username "dmnkly" skulking around, it's probably Dominic Armato, (better known as) the voice of Guybrush Threepwood!

  • Umm, no it's not. The MI3-Blood Island joke was actually a refference to Guybrush's death in MI1. Besides, as I recall, in the MI3 in-joke you don't have guybrush's old inventory shown at the bottom of the screen. :)

  • Other then the main and minor characters was there one particular character in all 4 games that you think was hilarious and should have made more appreances in the series?

  • It would be spooky to see the guy from CMI return, that took Guybrush to Bunny-Island (SKull Island) by boat. Remember? What was his name? Was that Bobbin?

    It was the "Flying Welshman"... obviously they were out of Dutch ;)

  • Aha, I see. It would also be funny to see a member of the Goodsoup family again! And more cemetery-action!
    (that sounded... weird)
    In CMI the cemetery puzzles were the best! I actually was pretty freaked out by those sequences. I refused to play that part at night. :p I was around 12yo.

  • Just thought of another question to ask... Got any good recipes for some good viccysoise?

  • Dom,

    This may sound a little weird... I just told my mom that we are all talking with you here, and she asked me to tell you this:

    "Please tell Mr. Armato that many years ago my son wanted a Guybrush Threepwood action figure. Knowing the fact that such a thing doesn't exist, I actually created one out of hardening clay. Besides that, he <> me all these years with Monkey Island and how he wants to become a pirate... I just want you to acknowledge that. That's all."

    Of course, she means that in a joking manner. Maybe you could offer her a small reply. That would kind of make it up for all those Buy-Me-A-Pirate-Hat-Please-Mom-Please years. :-) :o

  • Dom - Really enjoyed reading through all your answers, LucasArts made a very sound casting decision when adding weight to your love for the series.

    I play a lot of adventure games, and often I despair at the way lines are read: Stressing the wrong word, mispronouncing character names, etc. Probably this happens most in either low-budget or translated games, and I always curse some sort of mythical director. Is this really the problem? Is it a bad script, bad direction, lack of re-takes, an unquestioning actor, or something else? LucasArts and Telltale stand out for me as studios that rarely slip up in this regard, so hopefully you have some insight!

  • Dominic, do you own a pair of these shoes? And if not, why not? :p

    Also I'm still waiting for a reply for that "did your wife marry you because you're the voice of Guybrush?" (unless you weren't really planning to ask your wife)

  • Has anyone ever recognized you as the voice of Guybrush in a random, everyday setting (ex grocery store, walking down the street...)?
