Yeah, this I need to see to believe. Also, it might not be trustworhty, as Monkey 5 was once listed in another magazine as in production, and that was like last year.

Furthermore they also do news on free online games (featuring The SCUMM Bar's very own swordfighting game no less) and they have monthyl articles on "Games That Changed The World" (featuring The Secret Of Monkey Island!) and Retrozone which looks back at a different month each issue usually focusing on the late 80's or early 90's. PLUS, they have The Man Who Knows, who is like The PC Gamer Spy only MUCH BETTER because he's cooler and focuses on all the dodgy gaming news and is FUNNY, also Emulation Zone, written by Stuart Campbell no less which is GREAT. And they have developer diaries inclusing this AMAZING one about Black & White which is updated by the team. And they have sooooooooo much more.

So basically, they don't just do soild games. :)

Except PC Zone has been doing all that stuff since it was created, which was long before PC Gamer. In fact, it was the first PC only gaming magazine. Shame they didn't pick a better name. :)

Nonono, they should have picked a name like... PERSONAL COMPUTER INDUSTRIALSM! That would have given them honor and glory, gold and green trees, diamonds and high mountains, everything... hm, maybe not :\

But to MI, I have to ask why people call the new game Return to Monkey Island...? Where does that information come from? I don't see it anywhere?

Who calls it that?

Gabez
02-22-2004, 02:33 PM
Yeah, no-one knows what it'll be called for real. I had "Return to Monkey Island" as the subject of my news post because we'll be returning... to Monkey Island!

Who knows what LucasArts will call it though? RMI seems like a popular choice amongst the fans though!

On edit: I have to keep reminding myself that this rumour is no way absolute confimation that Monkey Island 5 is in development. :~

But they didn't say it was in development, they just predicting the future based on what LucasArts had told them (they didn't set a release date, they just said "TBA" - as in, we don't know when it's coming out, but it will come out... one day. And in this case, they were right! (Probably).

PC Gamer kick PC Zones ass. Saying that PCG are "hit and miss" based on that article it links to (on MIXnMojo) is unfair.

I trust PCgamer and believe it is only a matter of time before LA announce it.

It's not just that article, it's other things too. But generally, yeah, PC Gamer seem pretty reliable.

PC Zone is clearly better though.
