The Adventurer - Issue #3
Third week running! It’s The Adventurer: Every week, we send an email full of news, media, and who-knows-what (we don’t) – make sure to share all the fun with your friends and loved ones!
The Editor Welcomes You
OK, look, this is where we usually would put in some sage words of wisdom from Thrik. However, our editor is a busy man and is currently at a London symposium for aging gaming websites with the intent of acquiring failing properties for future investments. If he were here, he likely would have said welcome, though.
Week In Review
It's been a quiet week with the tight secrecy around Return to Monkey Island, so this is what we got:
Ars Technica talks to Ron and Dave
No real news about ReMI, but plenty of good tidbits all the same.
Skunkape Hits Us With Another Collector's Edition
We all saw this one coming -- after the success of Limited Run Games' Sam & Max Save The World box, we are now getting a Sam & Max Save The World bundle. At $70 for the PC version and $80 for the Switch edition, this is almost literally a steal -- orders open on May 6th.
Bonus Content: Mojo Rides The Meme Train
Jason was too embarrassed to post this article nine months ago, so we do it for him now: Excerpts from the Slack: The Worst Memes on the Internet
Poll of The Week
We pitted The Secret of Monkey Island against The Curse of Monkey Island to decide which one was the people's favorite. The original came out on top with a cool 54.4% of the votes, compared to CMI's 45.6%. I guess you just can't beat an original. Follow us on Twitter to vote in next week's poll.
Grumpy Tweet of The Week
Once again: we apologize for the confusion our youthful indiscretions caused.
Grog! Grog Grog!
