  • Only if they're part of and contribute to the story. I doubt it'll happen, though.

  • It doesn't really matter who they bring back as long as it's not Murray or Stan. I'm sick of seeing those two guys in every game.

  • If they're bringing back a trio, I'd rather see the men of low morale fibre make a cameo.

    Murray was first introduced in CMI, so he's not been there all the way.


    Stan, as annoying as he is, I kind of enjoy him. And Murray is awesome.

    Back to the topic, I don't think the trio would make any appearance. Maybe one of them, but everyone? Nah. They came and they went.

    Murray's been confirmed already. I love him though, so it's all cool.

    And if they contributed to the story? If they were actually a part of it?

    (Well, Stan not so much. He's always an element in some larger puzzle, never part of the story.)

  • Bringing back old characters really won't make the game any better. I think this game is great and one of the reasons may be that their have been no old faces savior the main characters. It has to be part of a story and I don't see those three fitting in anywhere that could be a pivotal part of the story. I just want a great story, not littered fan service.

  • And if they contributed to the story? If they were actually a part of it?

    No. It's usually a bad idea to bring someone back when there's no reason too (and so far ToMI story doesn't show at least a single reason to bring the trio back), especially on fans' demand. It's not the matter of contribution to the story, but of the story's logic.

    Stan kinda became a running gag in the games, just as "I'm selling these fine leather jackets" and things like that, something that's in every MI game, so I don't really have anything against him (and with him it doesn't really matter how, where, or why he started some new business, he was making laminated business cards in a coffin, for crying out loud). More than that, I will be surprised (though not frustrated) if he will be left out of the game. But I doubt barber trio would do any good. Heck, I'm not even sure that Murray would be in his place (and, let's face it, although I did enjoy EfMI pretty much, and loved dialoge with Murray in that game, he WAS out of place there. Heck, he was out of place in the second half of CMI). So, it's kinda a hard thing to think about, actually...

    I WOULD like to see Herman Toothrot/H.T. Marley and Marley Family Lawyers in Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood, though. I mean, H.T. being Elaine's grandfather and Guybrush being a part of Marley family, it would be logical for them to appear. Besides, the Lawyers have yet unopened potential (while barbers don't really have much of it left, considering how much time we've spent with them and little with those lawyers), and I love their music theme from EfMI.

  • Telltale games have been making some great characters for Tales of Monkey Island. With all of these 'Make a Morgan Leflay spin-off game' and Winslow appreciation threads, I don't think they really need to resort to bringing back a whole lot of older characters.

    Looking back at the older games, the only characters who are in multiple games are the core characters (Guybrush, Elaine, LeChuck) and a few other secondary ones (Voodoo Lady, Stan, Herman...maybe even Wally, Murray and the SOMI crew, if they count).
    So the majority of characters that you meet in Monkey Island games are new and interesting - I don't see why Tales should be any different.

  • I'd love to see a cameo by the barber trio (or especially from the men of low moral fiber), but not as main characters.
