Polly: Are you feeling it?

September 19th, 2011 by | 1 lonely comment

I had problems coming up with a topic for this week’s poll, so I kept banging my head against the wall until an idea would materialize and amidst the tears and blood it appeared; Have you ever been emotional while playing a Monkey Island game? I don’t mean if you still get emotional the 10th time you play CMI, but if it ever happened during any of the games.

Polly: What is the secret?

August 29th, 2011 by | 10 comments

Originally, I assumed the secret in ‘The Secret of Monkey Island‘ was simply the location of Monkey Island. It wasn’t until I got on the Internet in 97 I read all kinds of theories and I realized that most people think the secret is something else like the catacombs beneath Monkey Island and a lot of people think that the secret is that it all takes place in an amusement park.

This is something Ron Gilbert has often hinted at and it is supported by the grog machine in the first two games, the underground tunnels, and occasional dialog like the sword fighting pirates on Mêlée Island saying something like ‘Play along Guybrush, that’s how they talked back then‘. I believe this too, but I still think the secret the title of the original game refers to is the location of Monkey Island. This isn’t about what I believe though, what do you think the secret is?

Polly: What is the secret?

  • The location of Monkey Island (16%, 9 Votes)
  • The catacombs beneath Monkey Island (5%, 3 Votes)
  • Big Whoop (23%, 13 Votes)
  • The giant monkey robot (5%, 3 Votes)
  • It's all an amusement park (21%, 12 Votes)
  • Something else (Write in comments) (30%, 17 Votes)

  • No, I prefer the original for nostalgic reasons. (17%, 13 Votes)

Polly: Which dark island would you call home?

August 8th, 2011 by | 2 comments

There are a few islands in the Monkey Island series with inhabitants that seem to be shrouded in eternal darkness. Those islands would be Mêlée Island, Scabb Island, and Blood Island. Which of these islands would you prefer to live on if you had to choose one? Skull Island is not included as there is hardly anywhere to live except for the cave.

Polly: Which dark island would you call home?

  • Mêlée Island (47%, 30 Votes)
  • Scabb Island (23%, 15 Votes)
  • Blood Island (30%, 19 Votes)

Polly: MI with a hint of DOTT

July 25th, 2011 by | 2 comments

Hello fellow squawkers! I was thinking of ways to shake up the next Monkey Island game a bit and I thought it might be fun if you played different characters like in Day of the Tentacle and they had to work together to solve a puzzle. You could switch between them at any time and they could somehow send inventory items to each other even though they were on different islands or something. Let’s say it was Guybrush, Elaine, and… Wally? What do you think? Would it work? Would it be fun?

Polly: MI with multiple characters like DOTT?

  • Yes, that's a great idea! (28%, 17 Votes)
  • No, that's a horrible idea! (31%, 19 Votes)
  • Maybe, I'm not sure. Yes! No! I can't decide! (26%, 16 Votes)
  • I don't care, I just want another MI game! (15%, 9 Votes)
