More Monkey Business on XBLA?
©2010 Gav Ross:
After the success of 2009′s The Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition on Xbox Live Arcade, it’s only fitting that the original’s follow-up be treated to the same spit and polish.
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge sees the enigmatic Guybrush Threepwood return to a world full of dastardly deeds, hidden treasures and involving puzzles. In the beginning of this new tale, Guy finds himself in a bit of a bother as he dangles between life and death and has to journey back in his mind to tell the story of how it all started to go downhill.
Entering the lovely haven known as ‘Scabb Island’ – a place rife with pirate extortionists and other miscreants – it’s time for Guybrush to start doing what he does best: interacting with characters and the environment.
Purists would still say that the one and only way to play a point-and-click adventure such as this is with a mouse and keyboard, but the control design for consoles still works just as good here as it did in the first game.

2009 has basically come and gone and this year saw OXCGN.com go places which we never thought we would go in such a short time as a Community Xbox Website. We’ve ranked as low as 60k on the global Alexa ranking system, though we have leveled off at 120k, and pulled off a Google Page Rank of 3/10, both of which are huge tasks for any indie game site, especially one that is just over 2 years old.
2009 saw OXCGN attend E3 ’09 in L.A., various THQ, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Microsoft and other events all around Sydney and getting to play and see a plethora of new games from the PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, PSP, Wii and of course the iPhone.
Come see OXCGN’s GOTY Awards, you may get a big surprise . . . !

• SPOILER WARNING: Contains Chapter 1 Spoilers
Chapter 2 of the episodic Tales Of Monkey Island PC point ‘n click game takes a small downhill tumble but remains very enjoyable.
Guybrush Threepwoods newest epic adventure continues exactly where chapter 1 left you hanging, and this time Guybrush is forced to travel to Spinner Cay, the islands of the Mer-people (think mermaids), to repair his ship’s now damaged mast.
This leads him to bump into his love, Elaine and maybe a few other old friends as well. Upon meeting Elaine, Guybrush is given the task of finding the 3 golden relics that need to be used to find La Esponge Grande, which is needed to save the Caribbean from the Pox of Lechuck.
