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.

Horizons: Big Brain Wolf

August 6th, 2011 by | No comments

I love puzzles so after completing Puzzle Agent 2 in a few hours I found the game Big Brain Wolf on Steam and bought it to work as a fix to my endless hunger for puzzles. I’m going to be comparing it to Puzzle Agent 2 as a frame of reference. The story in Big Brain Wolf is stupid and one you probably won’t find yourself caring much about, but the puzzles are superb.

Review: Puzzle Agent 2

August 5th, 2011 by | 1 lonely comment

Since the pilot episode of Puzzle Agent, we’ve had to wait quite a while for the sequel. The first part was promising enough though, so it’s a good thing we finally got a part two! Does it live up to its expectations? Is it an improvement over its predecessor, or is it a step back? Read on to see what I thought of it! Read the rest of this entry »

Weekly Wiki: Three Sheets to the Wind

August 2nd, 2011 by | No comments

The following text is directly copied and pasted from the Monkey Island Wiki. Not because I’m lazy (well, I am, but that’s still now why), but because I can’t rewrite it to sound any better.

Three Sheets to the Wind is a book of poetry, written by various pirates. Upon reading it, Guybrush says it is some of the worst poetry he has ever read. The book is available from the Phatt City Library in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge but has been checked out by Governor Phatt; it rests atop his big belly and Guybrush must replace it with another book in an Indiana-Jones-style switch to keep from awakening the governor when he takes it. The book is necessary for identifying the coffin of Rapp Scallion, as the coffins in Stan‘s Cozy Crypt in the Scabb Island Cemetery are marked only by a famous quotation of the deceased.

Three Sheets to the Wind is also the title of Part III in The Curse of Monkey Island, in which Guybrush must participate in Insult Swordfighting at sea. The phrase “three sheets to the wind” refers to someone who is intoxicated, comparing the drunk to a ship whose sailing sheets have come loose.
