I made this wallpaper for my work PC yesterday. If anyone wants it, it's yours!

  • I want a floating island. Will that ever be possible for American games, or is it purely the provenance of the Japanese? (I'm not saying it should be in a Monkey Island game per se, *cough*MaxySam*cough* but you guys were talking about islands. Once. Kind of.)

    While the Gulliver's Travels/Hayao Miyazaki style of fantasy is very magical and adventurous, such things are more of a staple of games like, say, Simon the Sorcerer....or LOOM(hint hint Telltale)

    I was thinking of Skies of Arcadia and Rune Factory Frontier actually, but those are good too. I'd still love to see Sam and Max's take on magical, fantastic, adventurous tales, though. Just 'cause I love 'em doesn't mean I don't enjoy it when they're well mocked :)

    You want something along the lines of Angel Island from Sonic the Hedgehog 3? Actually, if I remember correctly, that game WAS developed in America, with Yuji Naka's supervision. There could be telltale of an island that once floated above the clouds, but for realistic reasons, we never actually see it float.

    Oh, and I almost forgot about the Island of Zeal from Chrono Trigger. That is my favorite video game of all time, by the way.

  • Please, don't mention Sega around me. It's ... it's still too soon. *sniff*

  • Shiny, I was looking for a new wallpaper.

    you do know that theres a New Simon the Sorcerer game coming out this year dont you?

    Yeah, and I hear it has to do with aliens; which isn't automatically terrible but has a bad history.

    I'm also not a fan of the art style; I think it's quite telling how mixing 3d and 2d doesn't always work.

    I really hope I can find a demo of it though so I can see for sure whether it's a worthwhile experience; if not, I'll hope a better studio can acquire the rights. BUT I am withholding judgment for now. :) It's kind of ironic as it's the fifth Simon the Sorcerer game and reviews have said it improves greatly upon the fourth Simon the Sorcerer game, which is said to be the worst of the franchise. The similarities to Monkey Island in this case are quite interesting.

    We'll see if it can bring the franchise back around.

    Sonic the Hedgehog has been dead for a long time now. Sega may still release a game from time to time, but it only further tarnishes the franchise. In my eyes, the series peaked with Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, and only went downhill from there.

    PS. I named my cat after Sonic the Hedgehog (RIP, 1994-2009).

    EDIT: I just realized how off-topic this is. Look behind you, a three headed monkey! *runs away*

    I think that Lucas-art could have ruin Monkey Island the way Sega did with sonic. Since Monkey island were their most popular franchise and because adventure became less popular, they could have changed it to an action adventure or even a first-person shooter (just kidding). But they didn’t, they just left it as it is and told us that is going to make one again after adventures became popular again. Unlike Sega that just release crappy Sonic games.
