"Unholy THIS!" - How will Guybrush bounce back from this?

posted by Dan2593 on - last edited - Viewed by 432 users

Here we discuss our theories of how things will play out in Chapter 5. And to discuss the ending in general.

I saw it coming the moment he put the Voodoo Lady in jail. But I already have theories on how it will turn out.

- Think back. What happens when Le-Chuck makes a kill? Undead-crew? Yes. My prediction is Guybrush and Morgan are forced by voodoo to work for Lechuck as he sets sail for Monkey Island. Skeleton Guybrush? Yes please. And hey. We have to go back to Monkey Island for some reason.

- The monkeys. Why did he go though all that work to put the monkeys back? Or did he? Has he placed them strategically around the ocean to perform some crazy voodoo spell?

- Telltale taking our ideas? :D. A thread about the Voodoo lady being evil and BAM, Telltale decide to entertain this idea. People want more darkness.. Bam. Stan.. BAM. Murray... BAM. Elaine VS Morgan.. BAM. The character that resembles Kates personality is a play on how we all want Kate. And we wanted Stan to look like his original appearance and we got it. This is what we call excellent use of feedback.
Now lets take a look at what else we requested and find out what to expect. But wouldn't it be great to have Insult Sword Fighting? Hint Hint.

Oh and the "UNHOLY THIS". I love a running gag :) The dialogue in that finale worked beautifully. I liked the ending.

  • What makes me wonder are those Morgan's lines said by Voodoo Lady in E1 while she was in trance. Coud those be words spoken during the unseen confrontation with her killer?

  • I for my part wonder about:
    1) what did Morgan whisper to Guybrush before dying,
    and
    2) what Guybrush whispered to Elaine before asking her to kick LeChuck's butt. Could it be the same crucial hint as with Morgan's?

    Games take at least a year in pre-production, usually regarding PC/console full release games (not counting casual games). Certain handheld games also require this much time in pre-production. The games main plotline and character design would have been vetted and decided long before the first chapter and the creation of this forum. Telltale is unlikely to have taken anything from players' feedback cept for very cosmetic elements, such as maybe putting in extra work to get the texture work on Stan's jacket.

    Anyway the nature of TOMI had been, there was really few deviations it could've gone while using completely the old characters a little more. Voodoo lady especially. So far the only new character of great enough importance to rank with the main cast is Morgan, leaving not much room to make out who is the big bad. In this case, it's LeChuck. Again. And yeah, hint hint for Voodoo lady but it's going to tie up with us liking her again, trust me.

  • Well judging from the Voodoo ladies what is she hiding button I would say they planned on going down that road well before that thread.

  • I predict chapter 5 wil take place (or at least start off) in some sort of pirate underworld and Guybrush will have to find a way to get back to the land of the living.

    This underworld would be full of recently dead NPCs: Morgan, De Singe, Noogie, McGillicutty, the Pyrite Parrot -imagine Guybrush' reaction when that thing shows up AGIAN!

    I think it's just that he wanted to spend time with Elaine and he had to bide his time while Guybrush prepared la Esponje Grande for him.

    I agree, good use of feedback. But I would have thought TTG would have put Stan/Murray/Elaine vs. Morgan anyway (esp. the latter). It's nice to see how closely TT are working with the community though considering how faceless many companies can get.

    But wouldn't it be great to have Insult Sword Fighting? Hint Hint.


    I don't quite see the Masters' point of view on this. I understand that they are worried about ISF becoming a stale running-gag, but I think new insults with a couple of competition-winners wold go down really well. But then TT are the guys getting payed to do MI for a reason :)

    I think Guybrush will bounce back from this by developing super-bouncing-ball properties in a lab-accident in which a mutated bouncing-ball-come-spider bites him. He'll use his super-powers to fight LeChuck but it'll cause problems with Elaine since whenever she elbows him to stop his snoring, she ends up with her arm in a plaster-cast.

    But this would be a great story. Especially for the look on Guybrush's face with the Pyrite Parrot.

  • His hand/ the sponge will heal his wound.

  • @Kenif said: His hand/ the sponge will heal his wound.

    Repeating myself - La Esponja Grande sucked up all the Pox. The powers of Guybrush's hand lie in the Pox. No Pox, no healing power. Another severed-off limb.

    If they're gonna play it anyway, they'd better have a REALLY good explanation why Esponja didn't suck the hand dry.

    Oh, and once LeChuck sucked up all that voodoo into himself, la Esponja is nothing more but a super-absorbent sponge. Without any immortalising mojo.

    We know from the Nintendo interview that part of the final chapter will take place in the Land of the Undead, so it's probable that we will control Ghost Guybrush trying to make his way back to the Caribbean
