Insert Piratey Stuff Here

posted by Profanity BANNED on - last edited - Viewed by 367 users

I wanna start off by saying that I really love Tales of Monkey Island saga, all of it. And I'm also interested in all kinds of piratey stuff, so I generally made this thread for everyone to dump any worthwhile Pirate related game, movie, show or whatever else there might be.

Not sure does this exactly deserve a thread, but I guess it won't hurt to try.

... Yarr?

  • When I saw the thread title I thought you were going to talk about pirating games and I was thinking "Well, this won't end well."

    But anyway, Sid Meier's Pirates! is probably worth your time. Oh, and the first four Monkey Island games, of course.

    Ah, I got one part wrong, I meant the whole Monkey Island saga. Not only the tales.

    Anyway, Thanks!
  • Jolly Rover by Brawsome

    It's an adventure game of piratey proportions... except all the characters are dogs. :)
    It really is a fun game. I highly recommend.

    Currently selling for ~$10.
    You can buy it for PC/Mac from Steam; buy a Steam key from Brawsome; or buy PC only from various other sites such as Direct2Drive. More info here.

    Alternatively, you can try the demo.

  • I recommend Jolly Rover as well. Definitely an enjoyable experience, if not quite up to the Monkey Island standard.

    If you have a 360, Age of Booty is a pirate pvp game that I had some fun with. Don't know if there are still people playing it these days though.

    I'd just like to quickly mention that the demo actually contains an entire third of the game, and is definitely worth downloading and checking out.

    Just a warning, though: if you actually end up making it through the demo, it's almost certain that you'll be dishing out $10 by the end of it, since you're well-and-truly immersed by that point, and are probably quite eager to experience the rest of the game.
  • I almost wanted to lock this imdietly. Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, and Sea Dogs is another great game.

    Ah, GPoVI - the game that looks absolutely fantastic, but falls short in all other facets. Still relatively enjoyable, though, if you can forgive it of its myriad flaws.

    The game and its premise does have plenty of potential, though; it just needed better treatment and execution. I'd actually love to see a sequel (or prequel) of it someday, but maybe with some better writers at the helm of the script and story.
