    They've been out on the PC for years though. Infact Steam sells a bunch of old Lucas Arts P&C games alongside newer ones like Monkey Island SE and Tell Tales games.

    The good thing is that the newer ones from Telltale and remakes from Lucasfilm/Lucasarts are coming to the Mac (PS3, Xbox360...), and not only to Windows now.

    Monkey Island - SE is apparently an Aspyr Game agent exclusive. So that rules out anyone living outside the US or Canada... :mad:

    I really hate what they've done to Monkey Island. The art direction is wrong, the art is rushed to the point of being sloppy, it has lost the care and charm of the originals. The music is too serious for a game that always had a happy mood to it. The controls SUCK. They managed to add more steps when trying to streamline the UI for a gamepad. So now it takes more clicks with a mouse to get something done. They turned Guybrush into a DOUCHE. But at least they fixed his hair in MI2 SE, but where is his beard?

    The only saving grace for these games, is the option to play them in classic mode, which is the only reason I bought SE on my Touch and PC.

    And surprise, I have more gripes. I don't particularly like how much Telltale has simplified their 3D graphic adventures. They added an inventory back into the new Monkey Island games, but it's still kind of a dumb approach when compared to the originals.

    I really miss the old Lucas Arts and the games they produced... This new stuff coming out of Telltale is just OK and the work from CluelessArts really sucks in comparison! :(
