    Thankfully, used copies of Curse and Escape are pretty cheap on Amazon. It's not too difficult to get a copy for either of those games.

    A little tip for when you play through Monkey Island 2 Special Edition. If you plan on listening to the commentary on your first run, make lots of saves so you can go back and watch anything you missed, because the commentary is considerably louder than the dialogue and also (for some reason) turns off the subtitles, so it's easy to miss all the dialogue in a scene because the commentary was talking over it.

    Sounds good. :D
    And yikes, I doubt I'd have commentary on if it's my first time playing. But good to know none the less. :)

  • Kudos to you for going back to the series' roots after joining it midstream!

    I don't think you could pay the ToMI team a better compliment.

    On a similar side note, Escape from Monkey Island was my first Monkey Island game (well, I saw Monkey Island games before that, but EMI was the first one that I've actually PLAYED), and been a MI fan ever since. Even though I know very well about EMI's problems, but that's one of the main reasons why I'm pro-EMI, not EMI-hater :p

    The commentary is enabled by pressing the A key when a prompt shows up in the upper left corner of the screen (Though it can be completely disabled through options). Most of the time, you can wait until you're done doing or listening to anything important and listen to the commentary when you're free to just stand around, but there's also commentary for the cutscenes, which is where it becomes an issue, because either you listen to the commentary and miss out on the dialogue, or you watch the scene and miss out on the commentary.

    You could always just skip on the commentary that's during the cutscenes and look up a Youtube video for the commentary later to hear what you missed. That's what I did on my first MI2:SE playthough. :)

    Dang! I thought the "har har harrr"s were finally behind me. Apparently Moose, Scruffman, Foreman Isaac and Andy St. John werent enough to erase 'em from TT fans memories. Alas, it seems those cursed harrrrs will follow me to my grave. :o

    Think of it this way: If someone asks who you are and you do, all you would need to say is "harr harr harr!" and then anyone within the area would know who you are. :)

  • Adam Harrington, in case you may know, I added "Never Live It Down" in the YMMV page for "Tales of Monkey Island" that I thought I would share with you. What do you think?

    Now I'm tempted to record a video compilation of the "Harr harr harr"s.

    Ouch. Well I finally decided that if I can't escape the harrs, might as well embrace 'em. I've been sneaking little nods to the MI fans into a series of small educational videos for fifth graders I've been voicing a pirate for (nod at the 55 second mark): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDSejdY5RsA

    So far the kids this project is targeted for haven't bashed me on the annoying laugh. Yet. :o harrrrrr
