    Anybody puzzled by the lack of involvement of the Monkeys? Obviously they had a role to play, but only really in a cutscene. The rest of the time the 2 or 3 of them just sat there.

    I was expecting to have to use them somehow in the finale.

    This reminds me, why is there no Mojo Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition review?

    Apathy?

    Yeah I agree with your review..the story was great..puzzle design not so much..it's hard writing a review because you don't want to spoil anything for people who haven't played yet..anyway I

    Disclosure: I am presently a moderator on the Telltale Games Forums. Hasn't had any effect on the content of my review though.

    Conflict of interest! Conflict of interest!

    *ahem*

    Seems rather coincidental your review has been quoted on Telltale's home page!!!!!
  • jp-30 on 09 Dec, 2009, 18:12…
    Whaaaat?
  • Thrik on 09 Dec, 2009, 19:20…
    Hee sorry, I didn't realise it cycled. The thing on their home page has a quote from Mojo if you wait a bit.
  • jp-30 on 09 Dec, 2009, 20:14…
    Yeah, I kept refereshing and only saw the IGN one. Then I got distracted nd when I came back I saw the quotes rotated. Yay!

    Good stuff jp. I appreciate the lack of spoilers too.
  • jp-30 on 09 Dec, 2009, 10:14…
    Thanks, man. It was hard to keep things non-specific, but all the better for it. Of course now the game's out I'm gagging to discuss the minute details!

    Good work jp! I have been enjoying this game a lot, and I also enjoyed your review of it.
  • jp-30 on 08 Dec, 2009, 18:00…
    Thank-you (you too, black sheep).
  • black_sheep on 08 Dec, 2009, 11:47…
    great review
  • Thrik on 08 Dec, 2009, 11:29…
    Haha, until reading this it'd never even occurred to me that all three original games climaxed with a Guybrush/LeChuck chase. I fail.

    Where is "The latest feature Stories" picture for TMI 5 taken from? It's awesome! (Good review by the way)

    It's a combination of http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/4577944/74894-main_Full.jpg and http://www.classictilemurals.com/images/muralimages/Accents_TarotDeath_16inx24inSlab.jpg both found thanks to Google Images.

    I agree that the ship painting is very cool. I couldn't find any more information about it, though: the image link comes from http://www.ehow.com/about_5091039_history-seafaring.html but I don't see the image on there.

    I have a collection of hi-res paintings of galleons like that. I found them in a buried directory on an Army computer network, when I worked for the MOD, and I stole them.
