The Secret Of Monkey Island Special Edition is now out. It is your duty to get it as soon as possible if you never played the original.

Heck, get it even if you did. This may be the most funny game ever made, bar none. I dare any of you to play it and not go LOL once every 15 minutes.

Did some leprechaun appear in front of George Lucas with the mystic formula on how to take my money?

Full Throttle is great. Biker adventures for kids.

He's been doing it since '77. The leprechaun's name is Yoda, who got to star in Empire Strikes Back as payment for teaching him how to take our money.

When this news came out I was overjoyed. I've been trying to pick up the various titles to run through emulators, and was trying to find a copy of The Dig. Now I don't need to worry anymore.

I also recently picked up the entire Space Quest series (1-6) for only $10. I love these old adventure titles, old graphics and everything!

If he had anything to do with these, we'd have gotten NEW SPECIAL EDITION INSULT PIRATE FIGHTING and be pissed about the scene where Guybrush opens his inventory first.

What makes it special compared to the original? And does special = better in this case?

Well, the graphics got a major overhaul. They added fatastic sound to all the characters. The music got upgraded. They made navigating a little more easier but using Ctrl for the actions and Alt for the inventory. Other then that it is the same old game play that you know and love.

At anytime during the game you can hit F10 to switch to the older version to do an in game comparison. They did a great job!

Is it worth it? YES!!! For $9.99? YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Far be it from me to talk smack about anything that might expose more people to Monkey Island, but does anyone else find it incredibly disconcerting that they updated the graphics, but kept the old animations?
