Of course I'll never forget him. I mean, he's a talking monkey! How creepy is that? 01 Sep, 2009, 00:08 / 14 comments

Geeze, are we already on to Escape from Monkey Island? Yes, at some point in the future you will be reading the Secret History article for the fourth Monkey Island game, and, if you act now, you might just be reading an opinion of yours along with it on the second page. Simply send your Reader Opinion to me, and do it with great haste. Or I will punch your face. Into a paste.

Was EMI obscenely underrated? Did it ruin your childhood? Did they go too far with that scene where Guybrush survives a nuclear shockwave in a lead-lined fridge? We want to know!

    Monkey *bloody* Kombat...

    Either way, the interviews and trivia on Escape from Monkey Island are bound to be good!

    I knew I should've replayed this before replaying Psychonauts....

    That's a good idea! We should go back and do a Psychonauts Secret History.

    Keep suggestions coming for a second season of these articles - we've been mulling a few concepts over already, but new ideas are always appreciated!

    It's not exactly adventure, but we could always do the "classic" Star Wars games such as X-Wing and Dark Forces.

    That was our line of thinking - the good, non-SCUMM LucasArts games from the golden age.

    Please Do KOTOR and Luftwaffe. That is all.

    Why not do all of them? I mean, it'd be tedious, but how many more classic games is Lucas really going to ever do? It'd be a good archive of their work, done by people who actually care about it.

    That's my thought too.

    We could even fit Zombies Ate My Neighbors In there, Somehow. =D

    Maybe return to Labyrinth (which only got a brief mention in the Maniac Mansion secret history) too? ;)

    A Vampyre Story maybe, or is that too recent?

    I knew I should've played more than ten minutes of this!
