Lucas promises a new Monkey Island in some different gags of MI4.
Guybrush, and VoodoLady too have said that there will be a new game!:o

I think that it's the only graphic adventure that Lucasarts can think to do in this moment. I think that there wasn't market for Sam & Max, the only graphic adventure that can sell is a new MI.

Actually, the whole point of them cancelling Sam & Max was because there was no market for adventure games, so Monkey Island 5 will be the last thing on their agenda.

No doubt production will start on MI5 in the future (and I'm guessing the very late future) btu whether it finishes or not is a different story.

I hope to get a chance to buy a copy of a 5th Monkey Island game. I can't find any new copies of Escape to Monkey Island on Playstation 2. I hope they come out with a PLaystation 2 version if they make a 5th Monkey Island video game. Then again they will probably jsut cancel it like Full Throttle 2 and Sam and Max 2.

If they're not gonna make a new MI game, i wish they sold the publishing rights...
Maybe someone by the name of ron gilbert would be interested.

I hope there will be a 5th game. I want it to be animated like CMI because the 3D EMI was horrible.:(

i personally doubt there will even be an mi5. lucasarts probably forgot about it...and it's lying in some dusty corner of a dark, cold, damp, musty room somewhere. :(

but let's hope not.

Lucas promises a new Monkey Island in some different gags of MI4.
Guybrush, and VoodoLady too have said that there will be a new game!

and this has been brought up time and time again, people have said that just b/c the voodoo lady says she has a 5-game contract doesn't mean there'll definitely be a fifth one. i used to disagree with those people, but now i agree. sadly, it was either said because:

they were planning to do an mi5, but for whatever reasons they still haven't gotten around to it yet, and they may not for a while;

or, it's just something for us to cling to in hopes that there'll be an mi5.

hopefully, it's the first one, but we'll see.

i wudnt get my hopes up on MI5,im sure they'll make it.no doubt.it's a healty brand name with more fans than sam+max.personally i think monkey island needs an injection of Mr.Gilbert,also british accents would be much funnier.Actually they should remake the 2nd game and give it a proper ending....then id be happy.........long live grim

You know the spacebar, you're meant to hit it after every , and . It's called grammar.

Now, lets get back to what you said, firstly, Monkey Island is a computer game, it has about as many fans as a computer game gets. Sam and Max on the other hand is a compuer game, comic strip and TV series. I'm guessing Sam and Max has more fans.
According to LA, this isn't the best time to be releasing a graphics adventure game so they probably won't tart on another one like MI5.

Secondly, Elaines voice in English would be good, but I'm just too used to Dominic Armato as Guybrush

Thirdly, the MI2 ending was fine, in fact it was great, I loved it. It's best left alone.

And fourthly, I doubt at all that Ron would be involved in MI5, not unless he came back to LA, and I doubt he would considering he's got his own company now.

he only said in an interview that he'd like to. But seriously, if he didn't have a job and they came to him and asked him to make MI5 for them, do you think he'd turn it down. Although he could cleverly say at the beginning of MI5 something along the lines of "Nah! it was all a dream from when guybrush fell down that hole at the end of MI2. here's what really happened!" and then we'd play the game from guybrush waking up in a hole with the Big Whoop Treasure in his hands.

just for that im never going to leave a space after, (except here)lighten up there is no need to be so bitchy mate.
The reason I think the end of the 2nd game was poor because the team making the 3rd game had to come up with a totally ridiculous begining to their game(my opinion).if they just left it at 2 games then it's a fabulous ending,very funny! I know Ron would never come back(it's just what i think the series needs) and yes he should make HIS 3rd episode to the series.I think the english accent for guybrush(and a few other characters)with most other characters having american accents with be very funny.Sadly this is all just talk because with broken sword(the best adventure game since grim) selling so poorly it will be a while befor we see MI5.
Personally IN GAMING I think monkey island fans outway sam+max fans.I can only speak for where I come from,,,,,,,,,,Ireland.plus if you search the web for monkey island you'll get thousands of more results than sam+max.I do anyway. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The only reason I'm "bitchin" mate, is because there is really no good reason why even the simplest of writing can't have a space in the right places. We have people from all around the world here remember, some of them can't speak or type or read very well in English so when they come to these boards they find it a little difficult...

...and they still manage a space in all the right places.

I'm not bugging you about absolutely correct grammar and spelling, just be considerate for other people please, it's not too hard. and Now I apologise in adanced for "bitchin" about it and promise to let it drop now that i've said what i've had to say.

*On topic*

Now I respect the fact that in your opinion you didn't like the ending of MI2, yes, it did cause the maketrs of MI3 to try and create a good intro to the game, but personally, I think they dodged that bullet nicely leaving it out there as to how he got out of the carnival. Of course I was annoyed a bit that we never found out, who wouldn't be?

And I agree that with Broken swrod doing so badly in sales (at least revolution released it, take a leaf out of there book LA! Bloody good game though) and the fact that LA think adventure game won't sell, they probably won't make it. saying that i'm looking forward to such upcoming adventure games as The Longest Journey 2 (what's that called again) and syberia 2.

And yes, in gaming, monkey island is more popular, i'm not too sure about the website thing though, just because it has more fansites, does that mean it has more fans, or just more fans with too much time on their hands? :D

Personnally I've always believed he was rammed incredibly hard while in the bumper car area and went flying through the fence and into the sea. It's very comical to my minds eye, I can see it now....

Ah, but how did he get out of his spell. Do you think that maybe the spell only works if guybrush is nearb monkey island (which is why lechuck was able to do it again at the end of CMI?

seems reasonable.

smokes o' pot
05-20-2004, 06:22 AM
Fair enough. I'm a slow typer by the way so I take shortcuts. Also is it just me or is Le Chuck a French name?, I've always wondered.
I'm quite looking forward to Beneath a Steel Sky 2.
Also there is a great opening in the market for a small time developer to make adventure games. They wouldn't need good graphics just good writers. I can dream.

Joshi
05-20-2004, 03:09 PM
There are enough crappy fan games being made at the mo, I guess if someone came up with a half decent story it could work.

You know what, I just had an apiffany (sp?) If ron told us what he thought his version of MI3 could be like, we could create a spoof version of it. I mean it would basically be us using sprites that resembled the characters and names that sounded like Guybrush and Monkey island. Now of course we would never say that it is meant to be a Monkey island game, we would say it's an original game that bears a slight resemblence to Monkey island. Then we'd put it on the internet for free and everyone would finally get Ron's story.

Of course LA would find out, but as long as no one says it's meant to be a monkey island game in disguise, they legally can't do anything.

Of course that's just a theory and any minute now someone will come along and tell me why I'm wrong (by the way, if this were to pass, I wouldn't be the one doing it, i'd just be the...you know... guy who started it all :p)

A good idea, all we need now is Ron, a baseball bat to beat it out of him, and 10 minutes of his time. You could actually get away with it. As long as you avoided all registered trademarks. They probly feckin' registered monkeys as their trademark.......then you would be screwed.




As always I blame society on a lack of MI5(thats not mission impossible 5)

Exactly, the curse is entirely linked to the carnival. Being catapulted away from it ripped the curse out like a still beating heart.

yeah, but I doubt they could do that. But skipping tradmarks is easy, people do it all the time when spoofing something. We could call the main character Giythrush Creepwoof, and we could call it "The Closely Guarded Tale, That Not Too Many People Know About, of and Island Inhabited by Small Primates of some sort", it's long, but it'll work.

Twas a badly made spoof about scary movies (and it wasn't Scary Movie), with said title, the title being the only thing funny about it (it's logetivity and parody on titles to do with the genre)

Skinkie

It's sad that people who can write a title like that can't write a decent flick.

Out of all of the Monkeys island games LeChuck is the best evil Character although after Monkeys Island 2 he has become less frightening and less detailed as we made the change to 3D.

I think Largo LaGrande is the 2 best evil Character in Monkeys Island. I believe that in Monkeys Island 5 Lucasarts should take the game back to its most successful format and most enjoyable era in full 2D.

They should bring back Largo LaGrande in the next Monkeys Island game because he is pure evil; just like all dwarfs are bad tempered they always think your making fun of them, and are very insulting.

They should return him to Scabb Island so he can stroll back to Woodtick to his famous theme tune to stay at The Swamp Rot Inn again as well as wreaking havoc banning all pirates from leaving the island and charging a toll for crossing the bridge. Do you think this will happen i hope it will.

It's usually comments like that that make them bad tempered and insulting. Dwarves are people to.

And no, whilst it's a nice thought, i doubt it will happen, LA will stay with 3D and create crappy bad characters for guybrush to beat and then cancel the game before it's released or finished just to piss us off.

Yo have also had Deja Vu moments.

You've got a bit of an attitude. I'm just trying to point out to you since your new that posting the exact same reply multiple places on the forum is generally frowned upon. It defeats the purpose of having multiple forum areas and multiple threads if they all contain the same thing.

I am not new I have been a member of the Scumm Bar since it first started. And I have been posting on this forum since Monkeys Island began. I have posted many things on this forum under my previous user name.

There is no rule that says you are not allowed to post the same thing more than once.

Most of us on here have more enjoyable things to talk about.
The only person who frowns upon it and actually hunts down people who have done such a thing, Is yourself the multiple post bounty hunter.

If you want to be a forum prefect why donít you polish your monocle and use your monocle clenching muscles and check out your own posts. You have done this sentence loads of times in absolutely loads of places

Calm down man, your registration was this month, you have 7 posts, it seemed fair to assume you were new to the community. Pardon me for trying to pass on some simple forum etiquette. And as for the popsicle thing, it's my signature, it's automatically added at the end of every post of mine. It's not an uncommon thing, so please stop using that to try and prove your point.

I was never trying to start a fight here, I'm just trying to be helpful.

Okay, so first, this forums hasn't been around since the beginning of MI, MI1 came out in 1990, way before the internet checked in as an information superhighway.

And there is actually a rule that says you cannot post the same thing twice, or did you not actually look at the rules ebfore posting that. It's what we like to call spam, it's redundant posting used to up your post count and it is not allowed.

yes, people do have more enjoyable things to talk about, but saying the same thing twice is not exactly helping.

And Skinkie's sentanc at the end of all of his posts is called a signature. he doesn't type it in, he goes to his user profile and sets it up there to put it at the end of his post. Being a long time poster, i'd have thought you'd have known this.

And just because you have the name Largo LaGrande doesn't mean you can do what you want, there are rules here and we expect you to abide by them before you get banned (which we can do).

And also, unless it is actually your signature, using the words "Remember wherever you are on sea or land you can't hide from Largo LaGrande" isn't impressing or intimidating anybody, it just makes you look like a bonafide fanboy.

Largo
I actually said

I am not new have been a member of the Scumm Bar since it first started. And I have been posting on this forum since Monkeys Island began. I have posted many things on this forum under my previous user name.

I Didnít say since the release of Monkeys Island MI1, MI2 1990 you have added that although I have missed out the word "Forum" from the sentence. Hereís the corrected sentence

And I have been posting on this forum since Monkeys Island "forum" began.

Next question

Joshi
And there is actually a rule that says you cannot post the same thing twice, or did you not actually look at the rules ebfore posting that. It's what we like to call Spam, it's redundant posting used to up your post count and it is not allowed.


Largo
First Joshi the Correct spelling is before not EBFORE and you can post the same thing twice as long as it is relevant to you argument, or for use as an example and I was using it as an example of what I want to see in Monkeys island 5.

Obviously if your advertising or your subject is irrelevant to the site thatís not allowed or posting the exact same thing twice in the same place is not allowed but I havenít done that.

Next question

Joshi
yes, people do have more enjoyable things to talk about, but saying the same thing twice is not exactly helping.

Largos
Myself and everyone else on here have more enjoyable things to talk about Monkeys Island. Except you and your pal Skinkie who wish to continue to argue with people you stalk for posting opinions you disagree with. I have posted my idea for Monkeys Island 5 in two different subject rooms because I was asked what my idea is they were not the same post just the same idea within it.

Now Joshi or Skinkie threes a more serious rule in this forums if you havenít noticed thereís no arguing and harassing. Opinions and disagreements on Monkeys Island Yes arguing about irrelevant subjects No.

You have virtually accused me of Spamming I wasnít Spamming if you continue to argue its not only ruining the idea of this Forum which is to talk about Monkeys Island your spoiling it for us devoted Monkeys Island fans and threepwood3 who created the Post subject What are the hopes for MI 5.

Largo
I do know about signatures like many I have a signature myself. I was using his signature as an example of exactly what he accused me of multiple posting like skinkie included his signature to his letter I included my idea to my letter along with an entirely different post its no different to what heís doing its not multiple posting its my idea thatís all.

Next Question
Joshi

And just because you have the name Largo LaGrande doesn't mean you can do what you want

Largos
Lighten up Joshi Its a User name that is all this is a fan forum for Monkeys Island its only a name I choose. Almost all the fans from The Scum Bar have a user name of a Monkeys Island character.

Why would the name Largo LaGrande mean I can do what I want its make belief you Wally. What gives you the right to argue and irritate people for liking Monkeys Island?

Yes there are rules on this forum myself and the others abide by them because you can indeed get banned. You have virtually accused me of Spamming I wasnít Spamming if you continue to make accusations and argue I am not arguing I will report you.

This is a signature if you were an actual fan of Monkeys Island obviously you would of noticed its what he says at the beginning of the game Dahh!

Hello McFly thatís the whole point of the Scumm Bar and this themed forum were all fans youíre the only one who obviously looks stupid here. Now stop arguing and spoiling this area for threepwood3 he created the forum subject title What are the hopes for MI 5 ? Subject forum room.

I am not arguing or harassing, just putting down the rules.
Your words "Skinkie or shall I call you "Dude" If I want to post the same thing in 2 places I will I do what I want." seemed to convey a rebellious nature which we do frown upon here. You cannot simply "do what you want" without adhering to the rules.

Again, I am not accusing you of spamming, just laying down the law and I doubt threepwood3 actually cares considering he doesn't post in this thread anymore as it has been dead for a long time before it was resurrected recently.

It actually isn't the same thing considering a signature is an automatic thing done by the forum whereas multiple posting is done by you (not an accusation, Iím using Ďyouí as the general term for everyone). But as you say, it was done in context along with other information, and this I do not object to and therefore you were not in the wrong there.

No, a signature is something added onto the end of your post automatically by the forum. If you were to have put that in as your signature for the forum to put automatically, I wouldn't even have mentioned it, but you seem content on typing it in whenever you feel the need to "intimidate" somebody or make a joke. I am well aware of it's origin, I did not in any way say that you made it up (although reusing an old saying from a 13 year old game again isn't that smart unless it is actually a signature)

Please in a polite way will you stop going on with this rant day after day its irrelevant to the subject of the Forum.

We all understand the rules and regulations and follow them abidingly. Myself and everyone else are only interested in talking about Monkeys Island related subjects.

Lucasarts like other top games companies have these forums on games so they can read what people think of games and get the ideas and suggestions of the fans. This is done so they can give us exactly what we want for sequel.

Lucasarts read them regularly, now I am not implying you but if there is constant arguing and irrelevant info on them then itís ruining the quality of the forum and credibility of the posts.

Now end this nonsense and lets fill these posts with Monkeys Island Goodness.

This is a Fan site and I can promise you, Fact Lucasarts do visit these forums for our ideas and views on Monkeys Island and they visit the other games forums available on Lucasforums for the same reason.

Another example of this is Smackdown5.com it is a fan site for Smackdown on PS2. I am a member of it and constantly post ideas for the new game on PS2 Smackdown V Raw and the Next Gen PS3 version.

The forum is constantly visited regularly buy THQ and all the ideas are gathered and incorporated into the game. All of the Big games companies do this.

Lucasarts use these Forums in exactly the same way.

Do yiou have any actual proof of this?

No seriously, I can believe that THQ visit that site you mentioned, but I really can't for one minute believe that LA visit here, because if they did, they know they would recieve the backs of our hands for cancelling Sam & Max 2.

It's a matter of fact, LucasArts, isn't THQ, as much as we'd like to think so, they're not as dedicated to their fans as THQ are and are way too busy.

If LA did care as much about it's fans as THQ do, then I'm pretty sure they'd come up with an official forum for us to express our views. It's a well known fact that LA get's their fan feedback from sales reports and financial overviews, which is why they cancel potentially good games in order to crap out another cheap starwars game.

Please don't take this post as being hostile against you.

I've never seen anyone who seemed to be from LucasArts on these forums. There is one guy from Raven who occasionally stops in the Jedi Knight forums, but that's different. He's there to help those with questions about modding. Also because he is from an official company a special tag has been attached to his name so people would be aware of this.

One good reason that the workers of LucasArts probably don't come here is the legal issues that arrise from using fan suggestions, in the same way song writers don't look at the music fans send them, LucasArts employees probably avoid the stories thier fans spout out.

I donít have any proof but checking fan feedback is the done thing now all of the big Games companies have adapted to this method of games making its the future.

Lucasarts are not as cool as THQ in the same way as I have seen THQ work for example myself and other Smackdown fans have suggested numerous great ideas for Smackdown 5 on Smackdown 5.com and noticed they were added to the game Smackdown 5 Here comes the pain.

I do believe they have PRs who do check out our feedback its used as a business tool just to watch us, they will not say this officially, because they would be to embarrassed to admit they read what we really think. But in my opinion until I see a positive change in Monkeys Island 5, like returning Monkeys Island to its most successful and most enjoyable format full 2D there will not be any proof of if they actually listen to what we want.

Joshi youíre a moderator but your talking as a fan to me not as a politician for example.

Please you are apologising to people too much when airing your views, I am not offended by anything you or anyone else says unless itís really offensive, and I hope itís the same for everyone else. I will disagree with Lucasarts and other peopleís opinions on a Monkeys Island from time to time and sometimes say they have Scurvy thatís all.

Actually most of what I say is very political of me considering you can never say to me that 1) I'm being hostile towards you and 2) I'm trying to argu with you.

By apologising and choosing my words carefully, i can never be held guilty of a lot of things many people would wish to accuse me of. If that's not being political, I don't know what is.

But mostly, I say what I say because I am not a politician, I am a person with my own opinions who is meant to govern this forum by making sure people know and abide by the rules and reporting those who continue to not abide by them to super moderators or if worse comes to worse, admin.

Also I am a fan, a fan of monkey island, which is one of the reasons I became a mod (that and the fact that I'm around a lot and I am sensible... and I slept with an admin, joke)

Basically, the main reason I "apologise" as I do is because there are some people on this board that think when I am airing my views, i am trying to pass them off as fact instead of opinion and get very offended. I'm not saying you do, but other people do, so I need to be very tactful when saying things. Good politicians do this a lot. Bad politicians do this all the time. I don't like politicians, but I am what I am.

Largo LaGrande
06-14-2004, 12:31 PM
That exactly what I want although i would like the 2D graphics seen in MI1, MI2. Your yet another person that also wants to see MI5 goes back to Full 2D. The era of 2D story games was the most enjoyable and sucessfull era for me there were so many good story games back then. Monkeys Island 1 and 2, Indiana Jones And The Fate of Atlantis, Hook, The Curse of Enchantia, The Legend of Kyrandia, Maniac Mansion, Dark Seed 2, The Dig ect.

Monkeys Island 5 should definately be point and click 2D MI2 style. All of the 2D story games look much more detailed and its much enjoyable to play story games that side scroll.

I would also like to see them remake MI1 and MI2 in Full 2D but with Photo realistic Characters Photo realistic Scenery everything also added Voice overs and upgraded Music. It would be awesomely breathtaking and the ultimate tribute to the fans that still play them like ourselves and the genius Monkeys Island Creator Ron Gilbert. They could call it a special Edition I would definately buy it.

Sgt. Pepper
06-14-2004, 05:43 PM
Yea I just can stand using the keyboard in a MI game. If they do make a MI5 I think it would be a good idea to do it with a MI3 style. But I can understand from a marketing perspective to make new games in 3D. New people to the series probably wont think the game is any better than Spy Fox or other kiddie games. They wont take it seriously because they arent suped up with the Graphics of popular games now a days. So they probably wont sell as many games as they could because more people buy games by looking at the box then they do from reviews. But a game with less atractive graphics with a better story and gameplay is better than a game with bad story and gameplay but good graphics. I really enjoyed the MI1-3 but felt MI4 could have been better because I couldnt stand the gameplay. In conclusion MI should not be experienced in 3D. Leave the 3D to StarWars give us 2D Monkey Island.

Joshi
06-14-2004, 06:34 PM
I agree that I definitely preferred the 2D games to EFMI and I would like MI5 to be in 2D, but what we want and what we'll get are two different things. If LucasArts were to make a new MI game, they would almost definitely do it in 3D, it's the only way they would actually make their money back, plus a little more. Think about it, most fans will buy it because any true fan would just want to see how the story ended, despite graphics and controls (they may not like it, like me, but I think they'd endure it to see how it ends) and plus, they'd get a whole load of new players to play it because everyone else loves 3D games, and the humour may appeal to them. That's annoyingly the way of it.

I don't agree with the remakes of MI1 and 2.
This is of course me, but this has been talked about before, and a great many other people have agreed with me. Of course people have agreed with your views as well.

But basically, my opinion is that I, and many other people, love the graphics as they are. To create photorealistic characters and backgrounds, and still keep in with the 2D feel we all like, we'd need and engine and the kind of graphics found in 'Syberia' (and just recently 'Syberia II', look them up if you've never heard of them, first ones a pretty good game, haven't played the second yet).

Now this may be nice, but MI1 and 2 have a very unique style to them that came about in the fact that the graphics were limited back then. Now if we could get better rendered backgrounds, but the ones still done by Tiller (Bill Tiller did all the backgrounds in high resolution first, but they had to be pixelated slightly to fit in with the resolution the game ran in back then, if we could get the original background back is what I'm talking about).

But the characters, just a few pixels across and unforgettable. So much more detail was added to these little guys than anyone thought you could get in just a small space and it was great, slight colour changes in one pixel could emote and expression and that was great. It was also great to still use a little imagination with these guys, as to what they actually looked like and so on. If they were rendered in 3D and so one, that would take away the fun of it and leave nothing to the imagination. I say keep

Monkeys Island 5 going back 2D would be great I personally like i said I would be awsomly excited if they made MI5 in MI2 stlye 2D graphics. But if they decided MI3 Style 2D graphics for MI5 I would still be happy as long as they have Gybrush like he was in MI2 and not with the blond bofonted hair he hand in MI3. Also for MI5 I would like LeChuck to look like he looked in MI1, MI2 because he was way more frightenig and more detailed with his green face long black beard and brown trowsers compared to now.

So why exactly did they make MI4 in 3D? Were they experementing or do 3D games sell more or what exactly? Why did LEC think MI needed such a make over? I dont know I just though with the success of the other games style why change? MI1 and 2 were top-of-the-line graphics back then. Did they think for sales like the first and second games they needed top-of-the-line graphics now?

Largo LaGrande
06-16-2004, 01:20 PM
Some 3D games are sucessfull GTA 3,4,5 Gran Turisimo 4 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater, Smackdown 5 ect. The reason these games work best in 3D thats the way they should be played. MI4 dident work well in 3D its not the way it should be played Lucasarts saw how sucessfull the above games were doing and thought MI4 in 3D would sell just as well as they do. They were wrong because it bombed, it dident last long in the offical top 10 Elspa Sales charts in fact MI1, MI2, MI3 lasted longer in the Offical Elspa Sales Chats MI1, MI2 were in the Offical Elspa Charts for years in the Amiga Days and MI3 has also a sucessfull title on the PC and therefore MI1, MI2, MI3 sold more than MI4.

Lucasarts dident realise that the MI games sucess isnt down to revolutionary Next Gen graphics. For MI Its all about a good strong storyline and respecting what the Huge MI fan base want and personally, MI works best in 2D it dosent mean it is less of a game just because its in 2D. Just look at the Huge Sucess Viewtiful Joe was winning some top awards selling loads and competing with the big names in Gameing for Number one in the chats, That is were MI was before it changed to 3D.

I dont know about what the games stores are like in your countries but back here in england you can still buy MI4 for PC, but you can no longer buy MI4 in the shops for the PS2, its very difficult to get in the shops, the only place is mail order websites like Amazon ect because MI4 bombed on PS2 in UK.

I thought what you said was absouloutly right and this sentance of yours is so true.

"I just though with the success of the other games style why change."

Correct change is what has ruined MI i put it down to Lucasarts no longer having MI genious creator Ron Gilbert and Co on board. And advanceing to next gen 3D.

See you around.

Plus, LA couldn't dream of selling as much with just 2D graphics. Thw world is moving into 3D, they thought they'd have to follow in order to sell. It worked. Fans just didn't like it.

Sgt. Pepper
06-17-2004, 01:35 AM
I think good game reviews probably sell better than graphics. If LA just makes MI5 good they can probably sell games with the reviews on the front(so and so gives this game 10/10 stars). As long as LA manages to make the game good people will see its worth buying. All though society is getting more and more shallow requiring 3D graphics for a game to be worth buying. Perhaps LA can re-introduce classic 2D adventure games and be make some money from it.
Also since noone elese makes games of that genre fans of adventure games would be forced to buy MI5 if they want a fresh new game. There are plenty of adventure game fans. The sales from that should be enough to make MI5 worth making for LA.

Joshi
06-17-2004, 05:02 PM
There are loads of companies out there still making adventure games, and some are pretty good. It's a safe bet that the upcoming sequel to The Longest Journey is very widely anticipated and Syberia 2 seems to be a very good game indeed.

Saying that, the adventure game fan base isn't as big as you'd think, if it was Lucasarts wouldn't think it was too low to sell their games, which is why they pulled the plug on Sam & Max 2.

The market is more open to 3D RPG's and action games. Therefore more companies make them, as they sell more.

Why exactly arent adventure games popular now? I play other types of games now and then but I still feel adventure games are the best. Adventure is a type of game that have stories that make you curious about what the instalment will offer. LA need to promote the adventure games and get them back on the market(by which I mean MI in particular). I just dont understand why on earth people wouldnt be intersted in great a games like MI.

The reason most people like 3D ation games over adventure games like MI despite the fact that you love adventure games like mi more is simply because they're not you. You can't really compare a person to yourself and say they're wrong for not being like you. The vast majority of gamers like 3D action games more than adventure games. I don't know why, but marketing figures and sales figures say this and so that's how things are. It's not a matter of opinion, it's a matter of fact.

All I was saying before is that you have different tastes to other people. I have many friends who like action games better than adventure games. I even know some people who hate adventure games. I don't share the opinion but I can see where they're coming from, action games can be about mindless action and shooting or beating up whomever you want without thinking, but thyey can also be about the sense that hey! I have a gun, or a bow and arrow, or sword, or something else I can't get in real life and do something with. I can kill people without getting arrestd for real and so on and so forth. Action games and RPg's let you do things you can't do in real life. people also enjoy learning curves and fast action and being able to show there skill. There really is no skill in adventure game, either you can do them, or you can't and you just keep trying until you can, and then you can. skill is something that can come and go and people can actually look at you killing 16 people with just a sword without dieing and say "wow, that's really good."

It's the sens of an accomplishment. You get the same thing from an adventure game, but it's different in an action game. maybe not better, but different, and some people enjoy it more than an adventure game.

And skinkie, the whole reason I played through the first is because I'm a slave to adventure gfames and someone said this one was good. they were right.

Translating Skinkies rather harsh words (kidding, I lvoed them) basically, what the voodoo lady said was just a joke, and at the time, they probably thought there would be an MI5, but chances are, there won'tbe, Lucasarts thinks that current market trends won't allow for a big profit from an adventure game, so they're rather cash in on more Star wars games.

07-07-2004, 04:47 AM
I think they've milked the Star Wars games enough to afford making another Monkey Island game. I didn't know until coming here that the next Sam & Max game was canciled (that's horrible!), and man-oh-man would I pay money to get my hands on a partially completed version of the game (or some of the scripts they wrote for the unreleased one).

I like the Monkey Island series enough I'd be willing to purchase two copies of MI5, as well as host a website to promote it. That's just me though. :)

There's always the hope we'll see another game in the series, our best bet is to send Lucas Arts some e-mails asking them about the future of the series and expressing interest. If they get, say, 30 e-mails from community members, it might make them think about it more seriously. They've probably pushed it off their 'to think about' list, and I think we owe it to ourselves to try out best to put it back into their minds and onto the drawing board.

Of course, the problem with e-mail is usually it's filtered out, and the people who read it are the ones who don't have any say in what games are produced. It's equally likely that the recipient doesn't know anything of the Monkey Island team, and only makes Star Wars games... but again, worth a shot.

If I see four other people here commit to sending a letter, I'll spend an hour or so writing up a letter too, as professionally as I can. :)

Skinkie
07-08-2004, 02:09 AM
No offense, but I think it would take alot more than 30 letters to convince them to even consider another Monkey Island game, considering the number of letters sent after Sam and Max's cancellation. They didn't even bat an eye to that. You'd need like 5,000 people to write letters to stir their attention. .... I wish I knew 4,999 people who would do that with me.....

Dassassin
07-08-2004, 05:22 PM
Ya, but I figure if it's 30 letters vs. zero, may as well make it 30.

Also, they say that 0.1% of people respond to a company or product, etc. That's 1 in 1000 people. Chances are good they only get one or two e-mails every couple weeks on any given topic, and boosting that number significantly could draw attention.

Oh well, no harm in trying.

Joshi
07-09-2004, 11:33 AM
Firstly, it's true, there is not harm in trying, it's a complete waste of time, but no harm in trying. Skinkie was right, 30 emails is nothing, the adventure gaming community collectively sent a good 5-6 thousand emails because of what happened with Sam n Max, and this was accumulated after just a week of their annoucement, and not a dent was made. Beleive it or not, the Lucasarts PR get a lot more thna just "one or two e-mails every couple weeks", you said 1 in every thousand emails them regularily, now lets have a look at exactly how many thousands there are in the gameing world? Also, despite sam n max being old news, people are still being persistent in sending more and more emails to them, an extra 30 would just be a droplet in their sea of complaints.

Secondly, LucasArts haven't even come close to milking the Starwars franchise yet, there are plenty of crappy games to do yet and as long as they know they'll make money out of it, they're not gonna stop (and with the looming of episode 3 on the way, don't expect them to stop any time soon).

Finally the money that goes into a computer game these days is something in the region of a good quality hollywood film and in order to make that money back, they need to make sure that that money will come back in. An adventure game won't bring in as much money than an action game, so LucasArts will stick with that, they don't care about quality, they care about money. Monkey Island is the last thing on their mind. Sorry.

i think they should basically do it in "simulated 2D", i mean they should do a pNc which works 2d based from your point of view. but the environment should be done in 3d so you can change to angle which you view from (with some limitation, dependint where you are). but you move by point and click. this could be interesting.

or they make i really 2d (background and stuff) but with 3d characters, i mean the moves, the way they turn around and stuff. i would be bothered much if those were realized through nice and smooth 3d animations.

I think that's what they're doing on a Vampye Story, 3D cel shaded characters. But the background will be in 2D, ala The Curse of Monkey Island (if you haven't seen the screenshots yet, go ahead, tehy're awsome, although the characters there are just placeholders for when they make them 3D)
