In more Xbox Live Arcade news, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition hits today. It’s 800 Microsoft Points (about $10). It’s basically a re-release of the original game, but with updated HD graphics (although you have the option to switch to the original VGA graphics at any time).
If you’ve never played The Secret of Monkey Island, now’s your chance to experience what is easily one of my favorite videogames of all time. LucasArts set the gold standard for the adventure game with SOMI, and I can’t wait to play it again.
Dr. Mrs. Ghostal and I also just finished up the first episode of Tales of Monkey Island. I recommend it to any of you who enjoy adventure games.
