View Full Version : what must MI5 be called

10-09-2002, 09:58 AM
In my opinion it has to be called The Return to Monkey Island. This is a cliche, but what the heck, MI is full of cliches. MI rulz.:biggs:

10-09-2002, 01:25 PM
'Return to monkey island' was actualyl my first choice, although 'return to 2D' was a close second.:p

10-15-2002, 07:50 AM
I sent this suggestion a long time ago to LucasArts...
Why is 'Return to Monkey Island' on our minds?

10-15-2002, 01:44 PM
it's quites simple really, we've had a secret, a revenge, a curse, and an escape, it's only right that we return.

Too close to MI2 : LeChuck's Revenge IMO.

How about

The Forest

i'm sorry. it's just...in me.

it's just, i have to do it. i don't know why.

there's something about saying "closing..." that i like. *hint, hint, my birthday is in 8 days, june 18th is my birthday, i like to say "closing", hint hint*

I think the new MI game should be called:

Episode V: The Monkeys Strike Back

07-04-2003, 03:17 AM
Though I would dearly hate for this to be the truth, perhaps a name such as "Monkey Island: One Last Run" would fit. I do like all of the others that were mentioned, and I would at least like to make a suggestion that could possibley strike inspiration into someone, making a really good name. I can only wish.

Or perhaps they could go all out and blow us away with "The Secret to getting your Revenge on Escaping the Curse of Monkey Island."

07-05-2003, 08:26 AM
some less obvious choices;

how about...
I know what you did last monkey

crouching tiger hidden monkey

gybrush - from russia with monkeys
gybrush - the man with the golden monkey

lock. stock and two smoking monkeys

dr. gybrush or: how I learned to stop worrying and love monkeys

the day the earth stood monkeys

gangs of new monkeys

or how about..
10 things I hate about monkeys
10 monkeys I hate about you
10 things monkeys hate about you
10 things I monkeys about you

the list could go on forever
but it's grown far too long already
so I'm stopping now. :)

07-05-2003, 02:52 PM
i think monkey island 5 should be called.....Monkey Island 5:the return of the threeheaded monkey

Episode V: The Monkeys Strike Back This is actually a good name, it shows humour. I also like the plain "Return to Monkey Island" which we all expect it to be called (I think).

I'd like Monkey Island 5 to do a lot what CMI and the first two games did, take the piss out of whatever you can alwell as having a good storyline.

I'd still like Guybrush to be a kid. It's a great idea when you think hard enough about it ;)

07-05-2003, 03:42 PM
yeah exectly what you say,and by the way ,Mi never had a real mature serious well trought thoughed name.Why is the return to monkey island not good,or return of the threeheaded monkey .Lucasarts is mostley based on these sort of names

07-05-2003, 07:43 PM
I'd like to see it be called "Monkey Island: The Secret of Porcelain" or something along those lines... I wonder if we ever will know what Guybrush's deal with it is

07-06-2003, 02:53 AM
Ahhh...imagine the possibilities of "The Secret of Porcelain"

It all started out (and ended) in a small, dusty room. Coming from far away, we hear a low voice mutter

"And with mixing the clay into the pot at the same time as the food coloring, the porcelain can be molded more easily by....."

(stay tuned to see further updates)

07-06-2003, 05:57 AM
Had Mojo been up, I'd link you to the interview we did where Purvis "explains" it and Tiller probably really explains it. Purvis says something about it being related to the fight with Fester Shinetop, and Tiller says it's all a joke that doesn't mean or is based on anything.

The REAL secret of monkey island

escape from monkey island AGAIN!
the MUCH WORSE curse of monkey island
the FOUR headed monkey

also some new locations:
SKINNY island
BABOON island

:D :D :D

08-24-2003, 10:04 PM
My vote goes for Monkey Island Reloaded... but then again there will probably be legal issues with that, so I guess the best in-house cliche name would be Monkey Island Episode One.

LeChuck lives
08-25-2003, 11:12 AM
I thought monkey island: the return of the threeheaded monkey was a good one.

I thought mabye the tales of monkey island. The game could be like one of the tomb raider games where they go back on laras life and you play all the bits that wernt seen in the other games.

They could have it where gybrush is telling children or mabye grandchildren about his adventures and you go and do adventures that wernt on any of the other games plus extra parts from the first 4 that wasnt seen in the others. then at the end of all the sections there could be a cut seen with him talking to his children/grandchildren.

09-27-2003, 07:14 PM
Talking to his childrens? Thats sorta like Star Control 2, i dunno...

09-28-2003, 05:48 AM
The Destruction of Monkey Island
The monkey's of Monkey Island
Monkey Island 5: The final battle
Monkey Island LeChuck's second attempt at revenge
The actual secret of Monkey Island

Thats all I can think of...

10-03-2003, 12:07 AM
Eek, nothing with final in it. It always makes me sad when people make a great series, and then name one that means it'll be the last. It means I can't go beat them to make a new one. Whatever would we do if we couldn't do that?

10-04-2003, 04:30 PM
Monkey Island 5 WILL be called....

Monkey Island: The Wrath of LeChuck

Don't ask me how I know this, but it is true. If you don't beleive me, just you wait and see...

Monkey Island 5: :monkey1: Monkey Bananza!

12-05-2004, 04:54 AM
I would go for something like :

- Monkey Island 5 : The Fall of Le Chuck
- Monkey Island 5 (A new beginning)
- Monkey Island 5 : The return to Plunder Island and the death of Le Chuck


12-05-2004, 04:56 AM
It would actually be really cool to see Plunder Island again, But this time it would be allowed to enter more places and buildings.
What do you guys think?

01-02-2005, 03:52 PM
The name has to reflect the plot of the game, I think. I'd like to see them go back to a MI2 style title. Monkey Island 5: A Catchy Subtitle. :cool:
