    I was a huge Monkey Island fan growing up. I loved 1-3!

    I saw on Kotaku this morning that they are releasing Monkey Island for Wii today!!!!!!

    So I mosey on over here to see if I can find anything else, and lo and behold......one chapter at a time, and then I have to pay for each additional chapter????????

    These were really long games with up to 15 chapters.

    Not to mention, this is like, the long awaited return of the game in forever. Why couldnt they just put it on a damned disc like every other of the 5 games in the series?

    Suck it, Nintendo

    A huge fan? If so, I'm surprised at your ridiculous comments.

    1. Telltale Games release almost all their games in chapters or episodes. It's just their way.

    2. The games were split up into parts not chapters. There were four per game if I remember correctly.

    3. The will release the game on the PC after the final chapter is complete. They may release it on the Wii in the future.

    4. Nintendo had absolutely nothing to do with the development of the game.

    As a huge fan, I'm sure your away of the remake of the original Secret of Monkey Island and are as excited as I am (though, I expect you to complain about this, too).

    Please do your homework before posting.

    Mine were Incredible Maze and Gradius III, probably a year ago?

    Remember the salad days when the games were decent and plentiful, and the forum was fun, semi-peacful, and addictive?

    Think the last decent one was Space Harrier (arcade) a few weeks back
    Nintendo have now kinda said "we are not arsed with Virtual console anymore"
    Well not those exact words they used more marketing speak and bollocks

    This gave me a good laugh. Please continue to make a fool of yourself.

    P.S. If your going to libel against someone, at least do it in a way that is believable.

    P.P.S. Libel basically means to lie on paper.

    If there are any more members acting out like Conan The Librarian please report them so they can be dealt with, thank you.

    On a sidenote: Another crappy VC update.

    Would like to point out that it was the other guy that provoked him into the argument.
    Hes probably a ok bloke unless provoked.

    I don't ever remember a time when Conan wasn't provoked by anything. That's still not the way to handle an argument.
    Just pointing out, he wasnt permabanned.

    There was no argument. I attempted to portray the facts and provide a defense for those who were not there. While I'll admit I was a strong in my questioning of his fandom, he was out of line with his initial comments and the personal attacks on me that followed. I'm happy to debate the facts, but not with someone who will not listen.

    As far as this weeks releases go, while I'm curious about the lack of Virtual Console releases, Monkey Island trumps all. Even more than Strong Bad (which I am finally close to finishing).

    Thanks for listening.

    Whilst he attacks a few of us Retro heads. He sometimes has a point
    The VC has become very lame. So you can see his argument and rants about the lack of decent games
    (Maybe not against Sega)
    heres that mentioned news story
    All im hearing is Brown Suger by the Rolling Stones?




    Edit - Now the DJ is talking
