Did you know that Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck’s Revenge — which, at around age 12, I loved — is a free download now? (This link is for Macs; PCsters are on their own.) I’m hereby playing it again, and will report back if the hilarity holds up.
I started playing the highly praised, little purchased Psychonauts on my Xbox 360, which is the latest game made by MI creator Tim Schafer. The first bit I played, after a very long tutorial, was funny — but not Monkey Island 2 funny. (I’m waiting to play the full game, which is visually stunning, until I get an HDTV. That’s the story of my (non-)gaming life right now: I’m also waiting to play BioShock, Assassin’s Creed and every other game people went bananas about in 2007 until I can experience them in eye-bleedingly intense 1080p.)
UPDATE: Oh no! My new Macbook apparently does not support the Mac “classic environment,” which I would need to run Monkey Island 2. WTF? I know my old PowerBook G4 could run pre-OSX programs. Anyone know a way around this?
