What to call the next season of Tales

posted by Victory63 on - last edited - Viewed by 432 users

Say if this season of Tales of Monkey island goes successful and a second season is announced, just is it possible for it not to be called Tales of Monkey Island Season 2. Just that to make it more in theme you could say.

Like how they have it with each season of the tv show Red Dwarf, instead of being called Red Dwarf season 2 or season 4, it's called Red Dwarf II and Red Dwarf IV.

So if there is a 2nd season of Tales of Monkey Island, could it be called "Tales of Monkey Island 2" or for more style and even better, call it "Tales of Monkey Island II" to give it that like old feeling :)

  • MI5a, MI5b could be possible. or just go with MI5, MI6. lol@ppls claiming it's not MI5. it's the 5th in the series. it's MI5. get a clue.

  • Iit would me much easier if Tales weren't episodic to say its Monkey 5. This way its a little bit more complicated because we have 5 episodic game. Thats what David Grossman said actually.

    By the way, i think he needs more to take part in the writings, because i think he said something like he wont that much involve.

    that's actually a good title XD

    I have to argue with you on that one. Do you label the Star Wars movies the way they were released in order? Do you label Revenge of the Sith as Star Wars 6?

    Games should be labeled based on their timeline in a series. In this case, the developers have already said ToMI takes place after a fictional 5th game.

    And I really can't consider episodic games as "game xx in a series", personally.

  • I wouldn't want to see "Tales Again" in any form. A new title for a new adventure would be great.

    I really didn't have to quote this part but I can just take this moment to say that Star Wars sucks and I have never watched more than 1 or 2 out of the 6.

    I take the rather radical approach of making things easy for a possible audience who hasn't pre-ordered the special edition super bonus t-shirt. Instead of making stuff easy, you want to make stuff hard. How would it work with "back to the future"? So you're all for titles like "MI -12" (yeah, that's Monkey Island minus twelve). We should also use decimals! Then things would get really complicated!

    Get a clue. Keep stuff simple and easy so there will be no misunderstandings and so that everyone will know what we're talking about so we can talk about better stuff than "naa aaahh, it's called cartoonISH".

    It's just formality anyways, has nothing to do with the actual gameplay. Not everyone is involved in forums and has info. They could just be downloading MI2 for kicks then just googling MI5 out of bordedom and when not getting any results, they'll just not look anymore. Make things easy. Me for president.

  • I mean lol, I don't understand that quote on youtube when he said that this was not MI5 because *insert stupid random reason here*. What's the point? Why downplay it like that? Because that's what happened, he downplayed his own creation.

    And for what? To not upset the diehard fans? *NEWSFLASH* Die-hard fans are addicts, they will buy no matter what! As in elections it's the unsure crowd that is the target audience. Get them.

  • I think that if we did another Monkey Island game after this, it would have a title wholly separate from "Tales of." (Like Sam & Max Save the World, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space.) I don't know if that would really be the case, because doing another Monkey series is the last thing on anyone's minds right now, what with the first one not out yet.

  • Could have:
    More Tales of Monkey Island
    followed by
    More Tales of Monkey Island with a vengence.

  • @Vitas said: Hey! Escape was my favourite. I mean, the Monkey Kombat bit was the worst but other than that you had a descent game.

    The only reason it was considred bad was because it didn't sell well in the US since during that time, people wern't into much adventure games anymore. But the game sold very well in Europe and Australia. Plus many major game sites and gaming magazines like IGN etc. gave it high ratings.

    So you have no game to blame except yourself US (no offence intended).



    I don't think thats the case. Frankly, while I did enjoy EMI, it simply wasn't up to the level of the other MI games
