Probably some of the best humour I've seen in a video game.

Looking forward to this a lot, but I never managed to sit all the way through the fourth game.. Trying to get that done before Tuesday :)

would really prefer a 2D MI instead of this crappy 3D stuff :/

hope this comes to XBLA. Would pick this up in a second. Or Mac... In fact, is this availible for mac?

Never played any of the previous classics, despite everyone saying how good they are/were. But as with others the cartoony 3d animation needs some getting used to, I prefer the detailed 2d drawings older point'n'clicks have used, but blah what can you do?

Much like Sam&Max, which I really wanted to play when I first heard about new games being released, I wonder if I will actually hold to my promise and play it...

The Telltale Sam & Max games are brilliant, you should definitely get round to playing them. They're the reason I have such high hopes for this, Telltale really understand the old point and click genre.

They're 3D yes, but they still play exactly like the old 2D ones, not like MI4.

Face it they would not have sold half as many copies as they will with this version, they have to cover production costs after all, there not making it on 100% tea and biscuits.

Looks terrific... loved the first two games on the Amiga. With this and a redux of Secret of Monkey Island coming to the PC, I couldn't be happier. I'm really looking forward to playing both games.

It says it's for XBOX right under "About the game".... and MI... made me think of Mii, they could probably be included pretty interestingly as cameos in a game like this.

I kinda like the transition to 3D. Only problem i find is characters are very low-poly, a bit more round surfaces would have been a lot better.

Anyway, if it plays well i'm in.

I suppose you´re right. But imo 3D graphics are sometimes totally overrated. There are games that look great in 2D and in a point and click game I find it almost compulsory :P

    Megido @Sdarts: Don't hate on pixel art you douche :) (24 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (27 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (30 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (32 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (46 minutes ago)
