I am sorry but I just had to ask. Who's sig do we think looks the best? Is the funniest? Etc?

If a signature is supposed to identify the style, humor, and identity of a poster ....and considering that EVERYONE here seems to use and abuse this feature ...then my lack of a signiture is a signature in itself.

My "signature" is found in my mode of speech, not some clever quote or annoying graphic.

It may not seem cool, but it IS different.

Although on the old board I had a cool random quote file.

Well, Haggis, it's best to say that your signature is "normal" :)

I love cats (and dogs, too), but I have a problem with graphics that repeat and repeat themselves. In other words, I would prefer to see a single signature only once per thread. When the same person posts multiple times to a single thread, then you see the same picture multiple times.

That's OK folks...I have signatures and avatars turned off in my options, so if you have nothing important to say...I am not fooled by your pictures filling space.

I'm looking specifically at ED when I say this: Isn't one oversized graphic enough? Why two? have you nothing REAL to say?

It'd be easy to shrink the signature down with one of those random image scripts. I think there are people with much worse signatures than ED though. I'd recommend a script like that to anyone who puts more than one image in their signature.

I have no problem with picture sigs if they are a respectful size. I'd say that signature pics shouldn't be much taller or wider than one of those crazy advertisements (pay...for...mojo) you see above you. That's still plenty of room to let us know what website you work for every time you post ;).

Not any more, my plans have been foiled. Actually I just couldn't decide on how to authenticate it - I mean keep it 100% in line with MI1/2, I re-wrote the story a thousand times.... it ended up being about (shock-horror) Herman and Governor Marley Senior. Upon their sail to Monkey Island LeChuck (who's alive) ambushes the vessel and Herman (for one) dives over-board to Monkey Island. The rest is simple, since Herman never actually leaves Monkey Island. But in the process LeChuck dies and all truth is unravelled before Herman is able to share it with the world years of solitary leave him quite crazy.

But now that THE secret has been discovered I think a spoof is in order.

Perhaps because MI didn't change as drastically from 1 to 2, they just changed the style a bit. But from CMI to EMI, they changed from 2D to 3D, which I imagine bugs a lot of people.

Of course games have to evolve, and they evolve hand in hand with the technology. I think it's a good thing. Without it the games would've become a bit stale probably, even when the story did 'evolve'.

Just my 2 pence. :)

True, but also, let's face it, Lucas Arts would have made a pitiful cash in if they made games for the old-faithfuls only, they need to appeal to more people and you just cant do that with 2 day these days - at least not while simultaneously expecting them to pay for it

Ron isn't the only one Trap. It's like Jurassic Park 3... while it made a fairly cool action movie it's **** compared to the last two - after all it's not an adaptaion of a novel. (And yes I have read the books).

If they made another "Hannibal Lecter" movie that wasn't based on a Thomas Harris novel, then there is NO way it could possibly compeate with the first 3 films.

I don't love CMI. How you ask... I answer. The sequal should be well defined and not an extention of the original. But at the same time it needs to be constant, and connected. CMI and EMI are not - think about making a movie "Scream 4" with no Sidney Prescot character.

Invariably? I don't think you dictate whether something's good or not. Maybe we're on different ends of the spectrum here-- You hate EMI and CMI because they're not made by Ron Gilbert, I love them because they're Monkey Island games. So maybe we're both biased, but the difference is I'm enjoying the games, and you're being cynical. Opinions aren't provable either way, but I enjoy twice as many Monkey Island games as you do. So I win. :P

The argument is just: how can 130 page script ever be as good as a 600 page book? But Ridley Scott rules all his movies are cool! I've started "Do Androids Dram of Electric Sheep" and must say I don't expect it to be as good as the film "Blade Runner".

Trap I don't see anything special about Maniac Mansion or Loom - aren't they Ron Gilbert games? The main other LEC game I like is Sam and Max hit the Road, which I never compleated - one day I will.

Well, you know what I mean. Ron's MIs.

It doesn't matter, the point is I love all the games in the series. It doesn't mean I'm blindly optimistic-- it means I have more to enjoy.

They're going to make a Friday the 13th with Jason in space... *groan!*

True, but also, let's face it, Lucas Arts would have made a pitiful cash in if they made games for the old-faithfuls only, they need to appeal to more people and you just cant do that with 2D these days - at least not while simultaneously expecting them to pay for it

True.

I love all the games for the reason that they're MI games.
With or without Gilbert is another issue, but I still like them.

It seems that a lot of arguments against MI3 and MI4 are down to public opinion, people not wanting to go against the flow simply agree with everyone else (of course this is not always the case so don't feel the need to reply with a "hey, not me" message)
I think you're right about the change in the games without Gilbert's input though, and i would say that MI3 and MI4 are both very good adventure games, but mediocre Monkey Island ones.

MI1 and MI2 aren't a blinding light of goodness you know... People compare CMI and EMI to MI1 and MI2 without thinking about MI1 and MI2 enough. I theorize that if CMI and EMI were released in '90 and '91 instead of MI1 and MI2, with appropriately adjusted graphics of course, there'd be just as many fans. It's just a cool bubbly case of bias. I love all the Monkey Islands as one big game, really...
This is all opinion of course. But it's a cool bubbly opinion.

you are quite right about this, of course, but that's my point. A 'Monkey Island game' is whatever conforms to those classics from the early 90's, whether you feel they're good or bad. Even if you hated monkey island 1 + 2 i would still say that CMI is not a fabulous Monkey Island game because it doesn't follow the same pattern, style, ambiance (or whatever you want to call the monkey island experience) EMI even less so.

But bear in mind that I'm also saying that CMI and EMI are both very good games. I'm not dissmissing them because i'm an old-faithful, i'm saying that they're not in the same vein as Monkey Island 1 + 2 in terms of style only, but are both still excellent.

Yeah... But I'm sure if Ron Gilbert continued on making Monkey Island games into the present you'd notice some changes too.
