Monkey Island Is BACK!

A week or so ago I mentioned a remake of the old game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. In this article I mentioned some games that I would love to see remade. Well there was this one game that I forgot to mention and I am hitting myself for not mentioning one of my all time favorite games. This game would be The Secret of Monkey Island.

E3 has been going on, and from all the games announced (Left 4 Dead 2, Mario Galaxy 2, Brutal Legend) this has to be the one thing I look forward to the most. The remake to The Secret of Monkey Island. I watched the video showing the demo of the game and it looks amazing. They added voice acting, graphics and effects. They also did something that I thought "Why don't all the remakes do this?" Which is to make it as easy as pressing a button (cause that's actually how you activate it) which brings you to the original game it self. Meaning, if you want the original game experience and not the remake, you can do so.


This remake comes out mid Summer on the Xbox Live Arcade and PC. I can not recommend this game enough to everyone out there. Who doesn't like a funny story about a man becoming a pirate? Also they said if enough people buy it, that they will remake the second Monkey Island. So everyone has to buy it for the sake of Guybrush Threepwood!

Also, as if this wasn't enough breaking news, the people at Telltale Games are making a 5 episode story of a new Monkey Island! You can go preorder all 5 episodes for $35 here. This can either be bad or good. As I remember the 4th Monkey Island game wasn't as great as the previous 3. I'm going to preorder it anyway, and share my thoughts on here as soon as possible
