I've just watched some EMI walkthrough video and found a comment on it which I found very interesting:
"Funny how is Escape form monkey Island, the aim is to save all the pirates from the effects of the ultimate insult and becoming too soft and submissive.
Yet in Tales of monkey Island, they need to stop the effects of the Pox of LeChuck before it turns all the pirates to hard and evil"
I've never thought of that before but it actually matches perfectly with the new found facts about the Voodoo Lady and her control of the "tides of destiny", helping / making Guybrush to do things that balance good and evil.
Also, this is the first time I realize the similarity between the giant shell and the wind machine, especially in their function as an amplifier.
Coincidence? There have been fairly few references to EMI in Tales, but there might actually be a story connection here. What do you guys think?
