  • I will purchase the first episode and see if I like it (15%, 10 Votes)

Polly: Fight – Lookout vs. Old man

March 28th, 2011 by | 5 comments

Most people (36%) have only played Escape from Monkey Island once and only 3% have played it more than 20 times.

This week we try to further analyze the fabric that weaves these games together in a triumphant sweater of magnificence as we ask who would win in a fight, The Lookout on Mêlée Island or the old man on Booty Island who keeps watch for the mail boat? Who is the sneakiest? Who would fight dirty? Who would ultimately prevail in a fast and furious fight between these two elderly gentlemen?

Polly: Fight - Lookout vs. Old man

  • Lookout (53%, 29 Votes)
  • Old man (47%, 26 Votes)

64% liked the episodic approach for TMI, but 36% would prefer one big game.

This week we continue our look at the MI games’ replayability and we’ve reached EMI. How many times have you played ‘Escape from Monkey Island‘? Only once? Twice? Once a year? Every Saturday? It’s okay if you can’t remember the exact number, just estimate. Hehe, this will be an interesting poll 🙂 Feel free to elaborate in the comments!

Polly: How many times have you played EMI?

  • 1 time (36%, 31 Votes)
  • 2-3 times (31%, 27 Votes)

Polly: Did the episodic approach work for TMI?

Polly: Who should make the next MI game?

March 7th, 2011 by | 6 comments

35% have played CMI 4-6 times while 13% have played it more than 20 times!

The chance for a new MI game anytime soon is looking a little grim right now as Telltale did not announce another season of TMI and they seem to have enough to work on for 2-3 years. LucasArts abandoned adventure games long ago and while Darrell Rodriguez got some things moving, like a special edition of MI1 & MI2 and some classic adventures available on Steam, his departure from LucasArts has once again left the company to ignoring adventure games. Let’s put all that aside though for this week’s poll as we ask you who you would like to make the next Monkey Island game if it were up to you.

Polly: Who should make the next MI game?

  • LucasArts (27%, 29 Votes)
  • Telltale (55%, 59 Votes)
  • Double Fine (11%, 12 Votes)
  • Autumn Moon (2%, 2 Votes)
  • Someone else (1%, 1 Votes)
  • No one. Let Monkey Island rest. (4%, 4 Votes)
