After every new episode of Tales Of Monkey Island is released, Alternative Magazine Online of course posts a review. However, what we shall also be exclusively doing is asking Guybrush Threepwood voice actor Dominic Armato a few episode-specific questions every month, so that our readers can get some further insight to accompany the reviews. This month, it is of course all about the second chapter in Tales Of Monkey Island, entitled The Siege Of Spinner Cay…
Warning! May Contain Spoilers…
Hey Dom, thanks for speaking to us again. The opening swordfight was great! Are you glad Guybrush is finally being recognised as a bit of a badass?
Ha! Well, that might be stretching it a little. But it is kind of nice to see him get his feet under him a bit as he ages. He’s still clearly outclassed by every woman in the vicinity, though, and that’s as it should be.
Was the pyrite parrot always going to feature this much? Or was it just something that grew naturally? I think it is becoming almost as funny as Murray!
Honestly, I have absolutely no clue. That’d definitely be a question for the story and puzzle guys!
Speaking of which… Murray is going to be coming back EVENTUALLY, right? A mention in both episodes so far…
I believe Murray’s forthcoming appearance has already been outed, so, yeah. And it’s not just as evil window dressing!
Favourite line/ moment this episode?
Probably Winslow finding out about the merfolk’s gender ambiguity “the hard way”. He’s getting funnier and funnier as the story progresses. I also dug the singing manatee’s musical selection. I had no idea that was coming!
Favourite fish joke?
Q: What did the fish say when he ran into a wall?
What do you think of Morgan LeFlay? We see her quite a lot this episode, and I assume she will figure in a larger capacity in the next one?
So far I like her! There’s never anything wrong with a kickass female character. I know the degree of her participation as the game goes on, but I actually don’t know much more about how her character comes across than you do. I get a feeder line here and there, but when the game is released is usually the first time I hear the performance. I’m anxious to hear how she progresses.
Forgetting the fact that you probably know what happens next anyway, would you trust LeChuck if you were in Guybrush’s shoes?
About as far as Guybrush can throw him! And that’s not very far…
Thank you for your time, looking forward to speaking to you again next month!
We hope you enjoyed this mini-interview! Don’t forgot to also read Alternative Magazine Online’s Siege Of Spinner Cay review here.
