i noticed something, everything they say in the earlier games comes true, like in MI1 when the voodoo lady says guybrush will be in a giant monkey (he was in EMI)

so i thought that we should all look for stuff that was said, but hasn't happened yet

bets are it'll happen in MI5 ;)

Uh.... he was in a giant monkey near the end of MI1 too. That's what she was referring to, not some game they didn't even in the slightest way consider when they were making the first one.

skinkie, you missed the point of my post...

i was talking about how they used things from past games, that one happened twice


we should look for more cryptic clues that MIGHT be part of a different game, and hey maybe some havent happened yet


and PS: he really wasnt inside a monkey, it was Hell... but then again that doesnt matter

You know what, I think he's right, I think that when making MI1, Ron Tim and Dave sat down and said 'You know what, in about a decade or so, I think there should be a game whichc is the sequel to the sequel to the sequel of this game and guybrush should go into a giant monkey. we'll hint at it here and then leave a note.'

It could happen.

No, seriously, reading invisible writings doesn't work in this world. And I doubt that the makers of EMI found that one line in MI1 interesting enough to make it a major pot point (or plot hole) in their game. In fact, I doubt the makers of EMI even played MI1.

Heh, pot point is right.

It can still be fun to do, though... even if it is fiction. ;)

What, you mean Monkey Island is real?

Sorry, couldn't resist (and just for you info, there is an actual Monkey Island of the coast of Ireland I think, small place where some big nob did something, or had a holiday home or something)

But yeah, if you realy want to do something like that, I'd suggest writing fan fiction. This could actually be good as it would make a nice story and good fanfic is hard to come by these days.

They don't plan it out 10 years ahead of time. They sit down while doing the game, and they could think, why don't we connect something from the past to this story. It's not that hard of a concept. I don't think that's what they did, but it would certainly work.

I, in no way, was being serious when saying that. It's what we on planet earth call a joke, or sarcasm, both of which you failed to see.

And yes, it could certainly work, I just doubt they did do that considering it was twisted in so many gut-wrenchingly stupid ways (like giant monkey robots for one). I mean, they did link the whole Jojo Jr being the son of the monkey we left hanging in MI1 (although I was always under the impression that JoJo was the piano playing monkey is MI2 that works as a convinient monkey wrench) and of course the whole Carla/Otis being stranded (of course for that to work, Herman would have to come back with us to Melee, and according to MI4 he didn't), but something like a one liner that was fulfilled in the end of MI1 (she says we end up inside a giant monkey, we expect to end up in a giant monkey, we end up in a giant monkey, all in the space of one game) probably wouldn't fend to well as a prophecy three games later.

Saying that, this thread is not redundant (or else I would have closed it) and it's still up for discussion (if anyone cares) about things that weren't exactly fulfilled in the previous games but may be put into MI5.

Does any one know in MI4 how Guybrush says that he cant die because he has a 5 game contract? I dont know if they thought they were going to make a sequel at the time MI4 came out or it was a joke to torment the closest fans of the series. Any way I hope that was relevent enough to this post.

Not really considering everyone else has posted that and thought it was a proof that they will definately make one.

Yes, yes you are. Mainly though, don't ressurect thread that are more than about a week old, otherwise people have already forgotten about it and moved on.
