    this was the best thing to come out of E3 this year for me. Love the series (although I didn't play the 4th one...i tried, just wasn't into it)

    Many hours long ago spent playing this, never had the originals on CD, the first CD game I played was LOOM.

    It would be cool to see the point and click genre make a comeback....i doubt it though.

    I loved the LucasArts games.
    I would like them to relaunch Day of the Tentacle. Then remake Maniac Mansion with better graphics. THEN, start doing episodes of Day of the Tentacle like they did with Sam & Max.

    I was about to make a Monkey Island thread, actually. I loved those games.

    I'm actually playing through the first episode of Telltale Game's Tales of Monkey Island. If you loved Monkey Island, you'd like this. I'm stuck though :rofl: Some of these puzzles are ridiculous.

    I loved the one I played, I think it was Escape from Monkey Island? I dont remember much about it other than out-insulting pirates to get the edge in a sword fight.

    in my mind it's really hard for remakes to top the shock and awe factor of the originals. The updated visuals, added voice, and all the other stuff will be cool as fuck to see.. don't get me wrong, but I grew up playing the original and that's the one I've been rockin since day 1. I guess I get attached to things like that.

    I'm pretty sure the remake allows you to switch between the new graphics and the old ones on-the-fly

    You know what I want re-made? Willy Beamish. That's right, motherfuckers... The adventures of Willy Beamish.
