Angry Prices

I find the prices on the Monkey Island games obscene . Three years ago I was desperate to get Monkey Island 3, but shocked to see the price was ranging into thirty pounds, even into the fourtys! I have a very low amount of money and most of that is spent on weekly shopping, and this stopped me from getting Monkey Island 3, the game I saw and loved at first sight, until just over a month ago! The prices aren't affordable for many people, and lots of us have to wait afew YEARS until the price comes down to, say, 15 pounds. But none of us want to wait that long. It's probable that the same thing will happen for me with Monkey Island 4. I only managed to get MI1, 2 & 3 because they were in The Bounty Pack. Monkey Island 4 - I have looked all around town and the prices are all from 39.99. This is outragous. Post your thoughts on this terrible pricing for Monkey Island.

It's a bit hard for a grown man to save up his pocket money.

I too have grown up responsibilities, I have my own house and car and I am a student, and it is hard to find money for things. I often have a look in ebay. You can pick up some bargains there and they often have new releases too.

39.99? THat isn't nice. Most games around my area are 30 on release. Try shopping around, or else look on the Internet, for lower prices. Try not to go into vastly-known shops like PC World. On the other hand, avoid little-known shops. Go for the in-betweenies, like Game and EB.

Hope that helps.

Yeah come on Legend!
That ain't fair "AT ALL"!

Niko's used 2D for ages now and it's out of order nicking him.

You've got a million sigs on that sig site.Use a different one.

yeah, that was sarcasm.

taking 2D would be like someone taking the monkey from brighteyes sig, or the stork from storkens, they may not have custody of these characters, but i wouldnt agree to anyone "nicking" them.

now, i didnt ORDER him to change it, i asked nicely. and i hope he will change it. as it does franklly **** me off. (especially as my next sig was suposed to feature 2D in tha pose)

NiKo is 2D

Maybe and NiKo could come to a compromise on the sig, I dunno, I mean I can see why NiKo is so upset, and I would be too, but at the same time it's not like NiKo owns the copyrights to using 2D on his sig... I think that's what Helly is trying to say (maybe I'm wrong, I dunno)

Monkey in brighteyes sig: a pic taken from somewhere, which nobody knows of, and finding a similar one would be easy.

2D: An extremely well known figure of late, and out of 6 of the boards I visit, there's at least 2 people with sigs using a Gorillaz character.
It's a fad, people want to, and will, use it.

Muahaha.
But hey, I agree with this guy here, don't make a big deal of this, it was just a question from NiKo, and The Legend accepted it, so why don't the rest of you just mind your own business, and not others'?

No one owns the right to use 2D in their signatures, anyone can if they want! I see why NiKo is upset, but theres no need to be like tht,just call it quits, leave it out!

It's not a question about "right", it's a question about respect. And if you respect a guy you don't go take "his" character from him.

NiKo? What's wrong? I've never seen him get upset so easilly, especially not at someone like Storky or Murta who I know he wuvs so much (not like that, you know what I mean) I feel like I'm about to start crying now I'm serious too, I'm not used to NiKo being so, I don't know the word I'm looking for, but anyways... NiKo? You sure you're ok? Remember, I'm always on ICQ if you gotta talk about anything

Awwwwwww hunnee There's not much you can do though, and it's unfortunate. Once people start smoking, drinking, taking drugs it's hard to give up. My friend smokes, she's tried giving up but finds it impossible. At least she's given up drugs, so that's a good thing. I know how you feel though. All you can really do is still be there for him. It is his life and while you know the dangers of what smoking and drugs can do to you, I know my friend started smoking to try and fit in, and now look at her, been smoking since she was like 14

OMG, NiKo. That sucks. Get him help if possible, quick! This may sound dumb but: squeal, the more you squeal when it comes to drugs the better it gets. It sounds dumb and bad and wrong, but if i can get my 13 year old best friend of pot and beer by squealing than so can you.
