Obligatory Dream Thread!

These kinda threads seem to pop up all the time and they're usually fun to read. So have you guys ever had MI dreams? If so, spill it, bb's.

Here's mine: A while back I had a dream where I attended Guybrush and Elaine's wedding. It was really boring, but at the end they drove off in S&M's DeSoto. Sam yelling was at them to get back, but Guybrush turned his head and yelled back "YOU'LL NEVER CATCH US, COPPERS!" whilst he sped away.

I was all like:"Okay, I'm gonna go home now."

There was also this crazy dream I had way before I'd even heard of Monkey Island. I think I was about ten when I had it.

I had just landed on this quiet forested island in the middle of the night. I was exploring the tiny local town when I entered into this bar full of activities. There I found three tough-looking sailors who told me I could be one of them if I did some stuff for them. One of those things was swordfighting, but the other stuff was like fishing and other things that I don't quite remember.

This dream always stood out in my mind because I liked adventurey dreams and I rarely had them. Least to say, when I played MI for the first time, my mind was sorta blown.

  • I used to dream a lot about Monkey Island when I first played SMI, about 14 years ago. Back then, I often dreamed I was in the game instead of Elaine. :D He, he... But I also had some weird dreams about cutscenes that never existed in the real games.

    I don't dream about MI very often anymore, but sometimes I do, and these dreams are usually pretty cool. There's one I still remember very vividly: LeChuck was disguising as some guy again (like Fester Shinetop or Charles L. Charles, just some other guy), and he challenged Guybrush to some kind of competition, and Elaine was to be the judge - and the "prize", of course. ;) One challenge was who could hold his breath the longest. :D And even though LeChuck was about to win - since he's undead, he doesn't breathe, so he can hold his "breath" like forever -, he suddenly claimed Guybrush was cheating, and wanted to convince Elaine to "disqualify" him, and he went on like what kind of a pansy Guybrush was, etc. Then I woke up. Very strange dream, but kinda cool. :D

  • I had a Monkey Island dream not long after playing chapter 4. It was about what I imagined would happen in chapter 5.

    I honestly cant remember most of it, though a lot of it was spent in the land of the dead, with some scenes of Elaine leading a rag tag resistance movement against LeChucks rapidly rising Evil Empire.

    Like I said, most of the details left me around 10 secs after I woke up, but I do clearly remember the big reveal at the end. Turned out Elaine was pregnant (when did THAT happen?) with Guybrush's baby.

    Hah. Can you imagine that? That would be the end of the Monkey Island franchise I think. Would make them too domestic a couple to still be realisticaly having pirate adventures. :rolleyes:

  • I recently dreamt I was in a charity shop and found a Monkey Island LCD game in a box of random toys.

    It was very much like this

    I think it was probably a platformer but I was still disappointed when I woke up to find it didn't exist!

  • That's awesome. If I had any useful tools on this laptop, I would so try to make that a reality.

  • Monkey Island is common dream material for me, but two recent ones:

    1. Dreamt that I was playing Monkey Island 2 for the first time but the game was completely different to how it is in reality. There was a whole new island and new plot. I woke up so excited to play this new game but then I realised I'd already played it several hundred times.

    2. Tales of Monkey Island: Rise of the Pirate Gods was released and I was talking to a friend about it. I was saying that it was so awesome because it the game was so big it had to be released on 7 discs. Woke up disappointed again. :(

    Who knows, maybe Rise of the Pirate God _will_ be that big that if you want to make a backup of it, you'll need seven discs. :D

    Holy carp, those 175 GB will take some time to download, 25MBit cable or not... :(

    I honestly don't see anyone playing this game on the 8th of December if that's the case... :p

    np: Speedy J - Reenter (Loudboxer)

    They could port the Wii version for download then put the real Windows version in the post with the DVD in a box. :p

    Aah, guys, you didn't get it...chapter 5 is already there, you only have to find the hidden download link and click it now, so by December 8, you will be able to play. :p
