The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

I've been meaning to re-play this for years — decades, even — and the news of the new one has finally spurred me to do it. Well, there are up to five games to (re)play before it comes out! (The new one is going to pick up where #2 left off though, so 3 to 5 are hardly essentially; but I'd like to revisit them all — or visit for the first time, in the case of most of #5, as I only played the first of its five chapters.)

Anyway, according to the save game file I played for just under an hour and have completed 12% of the game so far.


Interview: Ron Gilbert, Dave Grossman – Return to Monkey Island

This piece has been out for over a week now, but I've only just found the time to dedicate to reading it. I wanted to make sure I took it in fully, because it's the first details — and screenshots! — about the new Monkey Island game (outside of what was revealed in its announcement trailer). Exciting stuff.
