Something of the Thread: Something is afoot…

April 17th, 2011 by | 6 comments

HaydenWCE has spotted something interesting over at the official Monkey Island Facebook page. Craig Derrick is hinting that something may be about to happen, saying “Great things come to those that wait.” What could it be? While you’re pondering that question and waiting for great things to come, you can participate in this sea shanty game, or read the game script angeldeb82 created for Tales chapter 4 (or just do both). If you’re really creative, you can participate in the improvement meme. Dig up an old piece of Monkey Island fan art and draw it again, only better! This post’s header shows an example of such an improved drawing, by guimero64.

Something of the Thread: What’s on your mind?

April 10th, 2011 by | No comments

After a week-long absence, Something of the Thread returns with a vengeance: HaydenWCE has created a thread that looks to become a sure hit: in the true spirit of the What’s on your mind? subforum, he encourages you to talk about whatever’s on your mind. Other interesting discussions are about April Fools Day and the eternal question that’s always on everybody’s mind: just how old is Guybrush?

Something of the Thread: Creative Monkey Island fans

March 13th, 2011 by | No comments

Monkey Island fans are perhaps the most creative ones in the world. Or at least, we like to think so. Further evidence of that is an awesome painting by new forum member rayraybrain. Hande has used his creativity to make a chart detailing all the SCUMM masters. And you can be creative too, by creating some discussion on Telltale’s Back to the Future series.

Something of the Thread: Dear LucasArts…

March 6th, 2011 by | No comments

This week in Something of the Thread, I want to draw your attention to a letter to LucasArts that you can help write, asking them to make a new Monkey Island game, or to hand the rights to Telltale. The action started on the Telltale forums, and has now spread to our forums, thanks to SilverWolfPet. Additionally, angeldeb82 has made a game script for the first Tales chapter, and you can talk about the best bits in Escape from Monkey Island, or about the Monkey Island universe as a whole.

What is location you loved most in Tales of Monkey Island? That’s the new question from HaydenWCE, and all the hip people are already answering it, so why aren’t you? Meanwhile, Hande recommends watching a comprehensive overview of adventure games on YouTube.

Something of the Thread: Tickle me Elmo

February 20th, 2011 by | No comments

There are several things you may want to discuss on the forums right now. For instance, what are your feelings on Double Fine working on a Sesame Street game? You can also share your thoughts on Lisa Foiles’ Monkey Island top 5, and you can talk about how you signed the Toonstruck 2 petition without needing a Facebook account!

Something of the Thread: Blast from the past

February 13th, 2011 by | 2 comments

Question-asker extraordinaire HaydenWCE is back with two new threads this week. He wants to know if you prefer your Monkey Island games episodic or full-length, and what you thought was the best cliffhanger in Tales of Monkey Island. And in a real blast from the past, this thread from 2004 saw the return of forum veterans piratebd and Natsicle. Be sure to stick around!

Something of the Thread: Ron Gilbert speaks

February 6th, 2011 by | No comments

Because we’re terribly lazy, we’d rather have HaydenWCE tell you all about the latest news on the forums than to post it here ourselves. The news in question being that Ron Gilbert has given an interview to the folks of Adventure-Treff. HaydenWCE (who else?) also asks about your favourite Telltale games. And in other forum news, Hande is making a new cartoon, and blanket has a new haircut. There, now you know all you need to know!
