All great, but I will always be a Stan for the three musicians sharing anything and everything.
To editorialize: It’s great that the OST exists, and even better how accessible it is. On the flip side, it’s also optimized for CD—presumably it’s what will be included with the LRG release—so a lot of stuff has been cut out. Feel free to check out the MP3s ripped (and also remixed) straight from the game in our downloads section.
So, we’re looking at modernizing. Actually, we have already started, albeit on our Mastodon account. There, you’ll see a funsies piece of trivia daily (alongside “Screenshot of the Day,” “Quote of the Day” (a Dave Grossman favorite), and more to come (maybe)!). As for the website? Decisions are being made. (Slowly.)
And, speaking of the site: We turn 27 on Sunday. What the hell?
Return to Monkey Island hits a (somewhat questionable) top 100 PC games of all time list.
Speaking of, the game is available for a cool $10 for iOS and Android. Works great on an iPad, too.
We’ll call that good for now.
So I got really excited about the idea of including Insult Sword Fighting, because it allows you to have those more visceral moments, because it’s in first-person, you’re fighting your opponent directly. But it’s also more accessible because the bulk of the flow of combat is handled through the quips and the retorts, and how you build up that knowledge of the insults.
The whole thing is worth a read. I may have mixed feelings about this Sea of Thieves thing, but there is no denying that the developers give a damn about the source material.
It gives you a good idea of what it’ll look like which... Well, make up your own mind. The game releases on the 20th.
More music: The three LucasArts composers of yore—Land, McConnell, and Bajakian—have sat down with the onaroadtrip YouTube channel, to talk about... Well, I haven’t watched it yet, but presumably music.
And there you have it. We might do some more updates around these parts as the twenty-plus-year codebase is slowly disintegrating. So, stay tuned. (Or don’t; we’re all about choices.)
Every day, another scene from the Monkey Island games will be posted to the feed which, frankly, should make your day just a little bit brighter. And we might just have some other things up our sleeve; who knows?!
We’re on the Idle Thumbs instance as @scummbar—you probably should just follow us.
Also, if you’re on Threads, you probably should follow Mojo. (Technically we’re there, too, as @thescummbar, but... well, you know.)
And that’s it for now from The SCUMM Bar: A shell of its former self since we moved over to Mojo.
