So what was so fundamentally wrong with the original that it needs a re-release with pimped graphics? i guess it needs ScummVM to run properly but is that it? I grabbed it again recently and couldnt get the music running...but it seemed to run just fine (good speed, not crazy fast)

That's just it - it's completely unnecessary.

edit - from memory there are two versions of the game out there for scummvm - the floppy disc version without music, and a cd version with. Maybe you had the floppy version?

Looks like i got the floppy version. Will look again for the CD-version. I still have the original (for Mac) with the card-wheel for the protection at my folks house somewhere...

The Dial-a-Pirate was fucking awesome. All DRM should be scrapped in favour of this method of copy protection.

Default YEESSSS Tales of Monkey Island

I wonder if the developers will work with Ron Gilbert to reveal at last the real secret of monkey island if there is one.

...the graphics. And the fact that I can't play the original on my xbox.

The Curse of Monkey Island is probably my favorite game ever. Everytime I have a discussion about games with friends, I always reminisce about it. I'm quite happy they use its style and voices for the remake. I hope it doesn't dissapoint though, it might just not turn out the way you'd want it to.

About the new Monkey Island: I'm thrilled there's going to be a new one. The only thing is: I got the new Sam & Max series as well, or at least the first 2 episodes, and it just couldn't excite me much. The graphics look nice but I had the feeling it misses some of the vibes most old skool adventure games have. Of course I shouldn't compare it to old adventure games, because part of their attraction is nostalgia, but if I remember well, I didn't enjoy the humor in the episodes as much either. I think I even found some characters a bit annoying. I hope this is not going to be the case with the new Monkey Island.
Anyway, maybe I should retry the new Sam & Max, it's been quite a while since I've played it.

I've played the demo for Tales Of Monkey Island, but my computer's to slow, so I'm going to wait till it gets a release on Xbox Live. From what I've seen, the graphics can be nice. I just hope it will have a nice "vibe" like the other games have (and which the Sam & Max episodes don't have). Not sure about the controls though. You kind of have to click and hold your mouse to where you want to go. I think I prefer classic point 'n click, but we'll see.
