In my effort to not put too much OT into existing threads, I’m going to vandalize this (almost) peaceful forum with useless arguments, like the one I’m going to introduce.
While listening to the Youtube podcast uploads by @besmaller (nice job!) and enjoying the pleasure I had back then, I was asking myself a few things.
It was clear since the last months of the production stage, that many great fans got really enthusiast about the podcast. There was this spontaneously shared irony about the fact that we’re probably gonna like the podcast more than the actual game.
Do you think the fact that the Special Editions of Monkey Island 1 & 2 had a commentary played an important role in their success?
Do you think that the commentary there had its reason only in the “cult” status of two older games?
Do you think the whole “meta” thing would have been made more vibrant with the presence of a live commentary in TWP?
