I downloaded the S&M Xbox Live release this morning, to see if the sound files had been altered, but unfortunately they're the same budget quality they were in the PC game. It also reminded me just how much the voices ended up dampening my enthusiasm for the seasons. I gave up halfway through the zombie episode in season 2.
I haven't heard any samples of the Tales voices, but until I know for sure I'm not pre-ordering. And I never
thought new MI would come out without me wanting to buy it.
Really guys, come on now. I try to stay out of these kinds of threads as much as possible, but this is really getting mental. We're on a forum of a company discussing the new Monkey Island. Monkey Island! Do you really believe this is a game made by some evil corporation looking for ways to take your money and ruin your life? The fact that this game even exists is fanservice to the extreme. Let's not forget that Telltale still isn't this mega-corporation with unlimited staff, time and money. They're a small company releasing games that only exist because of their, and our, love for them. The fact that they're not doing everything every fan is shouting for doesn't mean that they're not listening. I really don't understand why this needs to be explained over and over. I really pity those that can't get over these silly little things and just try to enjoy the games. They're a labour of love, and I'm extremely happy to see this day. I feel like I'm 12 again, playing the Curse of Monkey Island-demo for the first time. Brilliant.
I think this is a very dangerous attitude to adopt. We should just be glad of new MI games, regardless of quality? The reason we want new MI games is because
of the quality of the previous ones, if the new ones aren't up to scratch it'll kill any enthusiasm stone dead. If they use the same quality that they did for S&M, that'll mean the voices will sound worse than they did nine years ago, in Escape. Which would just be bizzare.
All of that might be for nothing, however, as I'm still hoping they're using a decent quality this time!
