I haven't been this excited about a Telltale announcement since Tales of Monkey Island. I figured this game deserves its own thread. Who else has mega nostalgia for this series? I really should go back and get the KQ collection now.... So what do you all hope to see in the game?

  • I wish to try to get this thread back to the way I originally intended it:). What does everyone hope for in this game? I hope they keep deaths in, maybe even allowing a retry as a compromise :)

  • That's a good news nonless.

    Oh, and I dare to say that LucasArt is better than Sierra, just to pissed him off :p

  • You started a thread about the King's Quest reboot. You can't bar people from speaking their minds about it. This isn't a LucasArts vs Sierra debate we're bringing up here. It's a Telltale =/= King's Quest debate. Nothing to do with the companies.

    They have never proven they could (or even wanted to, in fact they've said as much in the past) handle an IP like King's Quest. This will either succeed immeasurably beyond any of their previous titles or fail horribly. My money is on the latter.

  • @MusicallyInspired said: They have never proven they could (or even wanted to) handle an IP like King's Quest.

    Nor have they proven they can't handle it. Keep an open mind.

  • Based on everything they've done thus far I have to say yes, they have proven they can't handle it. Not properly anyway.

  • They didn't prove they could make Sam and Max or Tales either, before they did :P. I hope they keep that little musical intro that all the old Sierra games had when it showed the logo and the mountain :)

  • But they didn't even do THOSE well. The original games are far better than the ones Telltale made. I only was looking forward to Tales because I was a fan and I believed. But looking back, Tales really wasn't a great game compared to the originals.

    If I may be frank (I'm not, I'm Rob) but the only thing Telltale has prove they can't do is a good game of Poker. So long as they don't make an update of Leasure Suit Larry Casino, I think they will be ok.

  • Seriously guys, all we now is "TTG is making a King's Quest game"... All the comments before you see anything are pretty useless, especially when you just say "TTG can't make it", like it or not, they will. So Wait and see.

    EDIT : And stop saying that TTG didn't make good S&M and MI. Ok, Hit the road was great, and some MI are better... But you all seems to forgot that if TTG was not there, no other S&M or MI was made. Plus, MI4 was way crappier that TOMI for exemple. As a "consolation game"... it's pretty good (and damn good in fact). TTG never disappoint me so far.

    Funny to see that, when TTG announce a licence, everyone scream and complain. Never for other companies, just because when it's EA and Activision we all say "well, it's gonna be bad, we know it already", like it's a fact. TTG make you react... strange...

    hmmm wow. Ok, well. Have fun living in the past and all.
