Hey guys!

For people who previously read my Alexandra Boyd interview, and my TOMI episode 1 review, my Dominic Armato interview has now gone live: http://alternativemagazine.wordpress.com/2009/08/01/interiew-in-conversation-with-dominic-armato/

It was a great pleasure to talk to him! I hope it provides an enjoyable read. Also, please feel free to leave any comments (no signup required) and check out the rest of the site. It is soon due to be redesigned and relaunched thanks to excellent viewing figures, but that can only continue with your constant support! Cheers :)

  • Cool. Thanks for posting this. :)
  • No problem! Thanks for replying!

    UPDATE early readers may want to revisit the end of the interview. Dom is a perfectionist and just emailed me with a greatly expanded answer to the final question. It provides a great read!

    Even Dom believes in an MI2:SE... sad news.... Sad news.
  • I think it will definitely happen Joe! Although I of course know why it won't make you as happy as some folks!

    I personally really liked the SMI special edition, but it is the idea of MI2 gettin this treatment that truly excites me... I think apart from dated graphics that it is one of the greatest adventures Lucasarts ever made! Fully voiced with some extra graphical gloss could prove spectacular...

    If the art is done right it'll be good. I'm no graphics geek but I do think that the art style needs to match the game and SMI:SE didn't.

    One thing that strikes me in MI2 is the melancholic feel, and I don't think a glorious HD remake will manage to recreate that. Maybe I'll be proven wrong, I don't know. But I'm yet to see a good remake - of anything.
  • Thanks for posting this too - great interview, good questions and Dominic sounds like a cool dude. :)
  • A lot of people seem to find the remade graphics of the Secret Of Monkey Island disappointing, yet I really liked them! I do feel though that if they do the second one they should try and be slightly more stylistic in their choices, like Curse Of Monkey Island was in the past. I would love seeing the second game with voices though!

    Thanks Steverin0 for the kind words, Dom told me this morning he enjoyed the interview because the questions were not the same old ones he gets asked all the time, so it is nice to be getting such positive feedback!
  • Thanks, have added a story to mixnmojo.com
  • Thanks! Means a lot, it also seems to be on scummbar.com, very exciting!

    I wish I knew how to submit the Alexandra Boyd interview in the same way.

    Oh and some more news! Dom really liked the interview, so we worked something out. Now, after every episode, he will do a mini-interview of aprox 5 episode-specific questions. Thanks for all the support!
  • Nice interview ! Dominic really seems to be a nice guy :)
