Today is World Kindness Day, so let’s all spare a thought for the people (such as Stan, stuck in a coffin for who knows how long between Monkey Island 2 and Curse of Monkey Island) we did horrible things to just to get some item!

(Stan coming out of that coffin in CoMI, which I had not seen coming at all, was one of the biggest laughs in my 25 years of gaming.)

In Greece, Tuesday 13 is considered a day of bad luck, much like Friday 13 in the rest of the world. It certainly is a day of bad luck for Stan….

MI2 <3

I’ve loved all of Stans appearances in the series - of the games I’ve played anyway.

I can’t wait to play the rest of this amazing series. Heart I fell in love Heart Eyes with Monkey Island and Guybrush the first minute I started the game.

But the thing is, I only play island games during the summer. I wonder if I should make an exception for Monkey Island series, before the so called “Apocalypse” comes Crazy.

The only reason the apocalypse is coming is because you haven’t finished this series… Wink

Anyhoo, Stan’s fate is a prime example of how evil Guybrush Threepwood actually is… Tongue
Lucky for Stan that it’s a cartoon world… Grin

Ah the lovably and annoying Stan.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Confession time: I’ve never played MI2. I have the special edition on the PS3, I should get down to it when I get time. I take it that it’s not as good as the first one since I liked that much more than all the other games in the series.

I’m just starting to work my way through the special edition myself.

Some people think it’s not as good, others think it’s better. I think the best way to put it is: whether it’s not as good as MI1 or better, it’s only by the tiniest of margins. Both are fantastic adventure games.

It would be hard to imagine, for example, someone loving MI1 and hating MI2, or hating MI1 and loving MI2.
