Guybrush: As dead as Manny?

Its been almost 6 years since LucasArts released EMI and I thinking the other day that we had to wait 6 years for CMI to be released (though no-one was expecting it after the ending to MI2) but is there ever going to be an MI5? Since reading the notice on the Scumm Bar website I'm unsure now. It seems LucasArts has set itself on continuing the Star Wars craze just because it sells. It seems like Monkey Island has hit a dead-end perhaps?

True. If MI5 would be like EMI, I wouldn't want it anyways.

There are tons of other adventure games already out there or in development. My favorites are Keepsake and The Whispered World at the moment.

A Vampyre Story (by former LucasArts employees) and The Sapphire Claw (by former Revolution employees) look promising, too.

I'm still waiting on Dreamfall (the sequel to The Longest Journey) and Revolution say they're gonna do another Broken sword, which isn't a bad thing.

I haven't got any hopes for an MI5, but if they do do one, I'll probably buy it just to see what it's like. For all we know, some other company could buy the rights and do it properly as I wouldn't trust LucasArts to do it properly. BUt even if they did do it, I'd buy it for curiosities sake.

Fahrenheit was good, and it got second in the Uk Game charts, which is brilliant, and might make publishers make more adventure games.

I hope too, that the contact for Monkey Island runs out like the contract for Sam and Max, that would be hella cool.

Contract? They had a contract for Sam and Max because it wasn't their intellectual property, it belongs to Purcell. LucasArts have Monkey Island forever.

Or for as long as it takes to find someone willing to buy the rights (and who has the money to do so)... so in other words, forever.

vampyre story looks good, the others don't really. I never got into the broken sword games, but ive always wanted to, sadly its impossible to obtain them in this little hole of a city.

adventure games really need a new template, PnC is outdated, the platformer is OK, but it loses that cinematic quality, i think farenheit is onto something but who knows.

I'm almost certain you can order all of the BS games online, they's still sold in shops around my area so places like Amazon are bound to have them.

yeah but then it costs much more than it should because i have to ship it out here to AUS, and that costs more than the game itself

Here in egland, the first 2 games cost around 5, can't be that much more. don't you have an online store near you that'll ship it?
