- Did he bring it? (I am
trying to be as elevate as possible over the telephone).
- He did! He did! And he starts giving me a bunch of explanations, such as: where did he
find it, how was the ad for it, how much it costed and many other similar
"adventures". But I don't listen to him any longer. I jump into the first bus to
see it sooner. Oh, no! I am sober; I gnash my teeth and I whistle with a superior
- How is the application? And I am again answered with a stream of words: how it has 2
CDs, how it has a killing introduction, how it perpetuated most of the characters from the
previous episodes, how you barely start to play and end up in the middle of a puzzle
- Are they easy? I'm being ironical and, yea
I don't want to, but if he doesn't figure
I know how my brain works. When the man doesn't get it quickly, it's only a fine
line to be crossed between the swears of refraining myself and teasing him.
- They aren't quite so easy. There are two versions
- Two versions? Why? Is it from Microsoft?
- No, man
one is easier, the other one is more difficult. One has more puzzles and
other has more difficult puzzles
- I supposed you've chosen the easier one
I grumble while loosing any hope. He started
- Stop teasing me. I've read that only the most genuine freshman deserves to play on that
one, but actually, it's quite the same. You can solve practically the same puzzle in one
version or in the other just that the "difficult' one is more complex, it has more
- Why, is it a sort of story? It starts seizing me and that's exactly what I don't want to
- Well, Guybrush finally gets to Elaine and somehow accidentally he's killing LeChuk (the
pirate) but he's provoking - unfortunately for him - another accident: he transforms
Elaine in a golden statue. Here starts the trouble.
- No wonder (bitter).
- The final, spectacular - and lengthened otherwise - is however like a story, somehow
neglected: at a certain moment, for instance, LeChuck says that the heroine gave him the
go-by, saying that she goes to powder her nose and skip it. You have to get satisfied with
- (Ooh, God, he knocked off the game and so will be
my diplomatic skills
) And what is so spectacular about that? (After all, he's the one
who called to let me know the old man brought it as a present, at least I saved the
- You're consumed with envy. It's cool, man, I couldn't find a bug so far - though one can
notice the influence of Sierra even if you have to catch glow worms with a glass jar (good
old style) and the animation is worth the money. Besides, the guys tried really hard, poor
souls, with the characters' voice and they are very well realized. Just wait to see the
- Well, I don't see it (I am furious).
- And how do you expect to see it if you keep me between bars over the phone instead of
coming to play it together?
- Are you invitiiing meeee?
I can hear his horselaugh.
- Well, you sound like dead drunk when you play this stuff! I laugh while I'm pulling my
T-shirt over the receiver.
- Did you say dead-drunk? Dead-drunk???
- Yea, man, what did I say?
- Come here right away and let me be!
Oops, he clapped the receiver but, what difference does it make? I am going to see the
Curse of the Monkey's Island!!! Yet, how about " dead-drunk"?
