If not 3d what do you suggest/
Cos the graphics were brilliant. Ok so it could have been more piratey. But ive explained my views on that a while ago.

once they get the control system down, and TEST the next MI more to keep it bugless, it shal probably be good.

Whut i liked the graphics, they were perfect, how could you like the graphics from the first games, i mean the first two games graphics were ok for it`s time, but they do suck, and the graphics from the third one scared me, they made guybrush look stupid, and he is not stupid.

He's not???
Hello, Guybrush is an ANTIhero! He's supposed to look stupid. And he looked great in MI3

NO! Don`t say that! OK, he`s an anti-hero, but he don`t need to look stupid! Guybrush like the cover arts of mi-mi2 would be great (I know i`ve mentioned it before, but it is true!)!
I hope Guybrush in the next Monkey Island games isn`t so goofy looking. I don`t say that he was bad in cmi-emi, but i will like to see a not-goofy Guybrush again.
Monkey Island isn`t dead yet. If only the game is piraty and have a good story it is good. EMI was good but it wasn`t so piratey as it could be. I want to see a MI5.

people there`s not going to be another monkey island, read the topic, under something sad and discouraging to find out the details.

I liked the CMI art/design/graphics the best. I loved the goofy-looking Guybrush. It suited the game. The only thing truly missing in CMI was me of course! Those dammed game-programmers didn't include me into any scene of the game. I was p1ssed back then, but I got a contract to appear in EMI. I don't know if they added that scene but I certainly hope!

Guybrush, literally, is a nice fella'. Maybe quite funny-looking, but that suits his nature. Elaine truly is beautiful, and you wouldn't want to see LeChuck really in front of you! The SMELL of his breath was... horrible. And he always stuck the stick too far into my ear. Made it hurt.

OK. I thought that you had a roller coaster through your mouth in CMI, or was that another giant monkey head. I have wondered about this for a long while.

All the signs suggest that there WILL be another Monkey Island, Stu. It'll be in 3D, but will probably have optional mouse control

The MI series will not end now. Look at the success of EMI. The sales aren't quite high, but it is an outstanding success for an adventure game. I mean this thing is in K-Marts for god's sakes! You can't say that about many adventure games, especially nowadays. EMI has driven itself into pop culture and broke out of its niche. EMI will not be the last, because for many many people, it's the first adventure game they've ever played.

There was a comment earlier about how Guybrush is an anti-hero. I wouldn't go as far to say that, but he isn't the typical hero. An anti-hero would be a character like Holden Caufield from The Catcher in the Rye (More information is available in your local library.) Guybrush is nevertheless an hero is more or less ignorant to his environment. As he stumbles around the solutions to the games many puzzles, we grow to love his antics.

An anti-hero is someone who is fundamentally unlikeable and/or whose motives are not good ones, but nevertheless happens to be on the side of right in the given story.
This is not Guybrush http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif
Rincewind (who is far more concerned with saving his own skin than righting any wrongs, though he ends up doing this anyway) from the Discworld books is an example more of you will be familiar with http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

Yeah...he doesn't TRY to, it just happens...I agree with Tull

(Shameless Plug) In fact, if you are buying Black & White, you can join a Small Gods Clan, based around Discworld! The website is http://on.to/smallgods . I'm a member, and guess who my character is? Yes, it's Rincewind http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif (End Shameless Plug)

OK I agree, Rincewind is more anti-hero than Guybrush.
But you can't really call guybrush a rough though rude hero now can you?

Discworld rocks. I'm now reading Feet of Clay, or as it's called here lemen voeten

No you wouldn't call Guybrush that, but I don't think anyone did.
Guybrush is an unlikely hero, not an anti-hero. It's a distinction that's often confused http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif
