Next Monkey Island should be made by

Telltale or LucasArts?
LucasArts for me, since Telltale's limited episode system means less scenarios and not-so-good soundtrack. (and sound quality)

    Just a little thing, I think you mean Majus. Tom is emulating Majus, but ehe is NOT Majus :P

  • It's still bugging me seeing his name show up as "TomPravetz", when I've been used to seeing "TPravetz" for the last few months. It's also bugging me that I can't figure out how he changed it...

    I seem to recall that he asked a Telltale employee to do it for him.

  • @avistew said: IWWH is I Wonder What Happens, which is a series of flash movies, each about an episode of Monkey Island, released before the episode and speculating as to what happens in them.

    Yeah, I just saw them. Quite fun. It's incredible how much stuff can people come up with out of boredom just waiting for an episode to come. This goes in addition to my earlier remark of people with tremendous amounts of free time and me envying them.

    Also, I couldn't help but notice that it feels like they all were voiced by only one person. If this is true, this guy must've used Auto-Tune, Diamond Voice Changer and listen to Seth MacFarlane a lot before being able to change his voice like that and sing. This also adds to your comment about singing, so you see, nothing is impossible =)

    I guess I'm just not a type of social guy, and I know it feels awkward for a remark like that right in the middle of a social utility called a forum, but I'm used to rotten tomatoes anyway...

    Did he also do a "what happens after Tales" movie?

  • It was made by a few people, actually (I think there are credits in the end). And there isn't any "I wonder what happens after Tales" that I know of although that would be cool.

  • idk, but they're all awesome.

    "You fight like a SUPER COW!"

  • That Elaine voicing sounded just too... perfect.

  • Uzrname, do you know when you reach the end of the scenario and you get a black screen for a second or even just a camera angle change until you see what's ahead of you? This is called SCREEN CHANGING, THOSE PERIODS ARE SCREENS
    Man, is it THAT HARD to understand. Tales has too few screens, it's a fact

    See, you even edited your post and still it was full of rage.
    No really, I won't argue with you on that. To me "screens" are angles, even if it's part of the same location. So technically, EMI environment was much easier to make screens of, because you'd just change the angle and snap the pic. In Tales, the camera moves, hence it takes more effort to animate.

    Or do you NOT agree?

    Thin, what he was trying to tell you was that, with the 3D environment, Tales doesn't need a ton of screens. In Flotsam Town, the whole town is one screen. At Spinner Cay, the whole area of town except for the Library and the Chieftan's hot tub is just one screen. In Rise of the Pirate God, each area of the crossroads is just one screen.

    The camera pans as Guybrush moves, so you don't need lots of screens.

    [EDIT]: Oh, and in Curse of Monkey Island (my ABSOLUTE favorite MI game until Tales came out,) The outdoor area in Puerto Pollo Town is also just one screen. More doesn't mean better. [/EDIT]



    Okay, okay... so let me get this straight. According to you, when this idea is used as far as old NES games go, Deadly Towers is better than The Legend of Zelda because the dungeons have more screens.


    okay, so this dungeon map that was hand written bcuz it's so huge:

    is better than this:

    Have you seen the AVGN's review of Deadly Towers? It's terrible.

    Tales doesn't need more screens. Uzr is right, the 3D camera panning as you move reduces the need for tons of them.
