Original vs Remake Guybrush Threepwood design

Hey, decided to make a comparision of Guybrush's character designs. I kinda get the impression that the new character design for monkey island 2 remake shows signs that they're trying to link it to the curses look.

p.s don't ask why escape isn't in the timeline :cool:

  • He doesn't look handsome. He looks like a big softy.
    The kind of guy you'd beat up at school.
    I kinda like it, though it's one of my least favorite ones.

  • guybrush is sex on legs in all his versions

    Always found that strange. Sex almost always comes with legs included.

    Yeah, it's almost like saying "a car on wheels".

    I just see Escape like Rocky 5 where the sequel to it goes out of its way not to reference or aknowledge it.

    Hmm..I must have just imagined the references that were present in ToMI then..

    Though I don't see where you come off calling me an "arse" just for pointing out the obvious fact that you are denying reality. You yourself admitted to this fact when you said:

    @presidentmax said: no harm in doing so really...Sorry i just can't stand escape and i feel it serves no real purpose to the series it could easily be left out.

    Just because you personally feel that "it could easily be left out" does not mean it didn't happen. EFMI is there, like it or not. It happened. It's real, it's official, it's licensed canon. Beyond that it's not even as bad as you all try to make it out to be.

    I accept some people don't like the game. I don't expect everyone to agree with me. But denying the existence of EFMI in any form, even if it's just pretending it's not there, is a denial of reality.

    @presidentmax said: the escape model looks so out of place inbetween curse and tales models.

    You can tell with the tales model it was far influenced by curse and revenge and they went out their way to avoid influence from escape.

    I honestly don't see where you get this impression that they "went out of their way" to make sure that the Tales model bore no resemblance to the Escape model. The Escape model was much more realistically proportioned than the Curse model. I mean in Curse his nose is half the size of his torso, his ankles are as wide as just two of his fingers, etc., etc. The Escape model albeit created with an extremely, glaringly low polygon count, at least aimed at a more realistically proportionate figure.

    So, no, I can't tell that TTG "went out of their way" to avoid looking like the EFMI model. I just can't see it.

    I'm really not trying to be on the offensive here, but I simply pointed out how you were denying the existence of EFMI and you go on and call me an "arse". So hopefully from here we can at least pretend to be mature enough to discuss each other's opinions without name-calling.

    Edit: Why is it that amputees are excluded from sexual relations? Discrimination much?

    Dude just leave me alone

    It was the way you wrote your comment that upset me as you made me sound pathetic and weak-minded for not accepting the truth. Okay then, Escape happened. What do i gain from that slice of truth?

    It was wrong of me to call you an arse.

  • I really enjoyed EMI, but it still feels out of place in the series in my opinion. I'd be happy calling it non-canon, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it.

    Look into his eyes and tell me you still don't like Escape Guybrush.
    He loves you.

    he looks freaking scary, the big-eyed plonker.

  • My avatar is offended by this thread. But in all honesty, I don't think that ToMI's Guybrush was influenced at all by CoMI. And truth be told, when I first saw ToMI's Guybrush I thought that he showed the least resemblance to the other Guybrushes. However, when I finally saw him in animation (as well as with Dom's voice) I was pleasantly surprised to find that he fell right in line.
