Finished with Ransom of the Seven Ships

I finished playing Nancy Drew: Ransom of the Seven Ships today. YEAH! The ending was...aw, man, I can't spoil it for everyone. That'd be mean. But I was totally right! We have the triumphant return of a villain from a previous game, and there are lots of villains in the series so that doesn't count as a spoiler, right?

The only (minor) downside is that they had a new person do the villain's voice. They had a new person do George's voice, too, although George hasn't been in a game for years...since Danger by Design, I think. The same person does Bess' voice, though, and Coucou the parrot is voiced by the same person who did Loulou's voice in Nancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor.

So, to tide everyone over until I start and finish the walkthrough, here's the preview at the end of the game:

Hey Micheal I got the culprit spoiled for me but I still want to see the ending. Its also awesome that I love the culprit!

But is the culprit's voice really bad? Because I hate George's voice.

Tallulah said...

Thank you SO much, Michael!!! I can't wait until I get the game and I can use the walkthrough!

Viv said...

The Waverly Academy one seems so groovy! I can't wait! It's probably not going to come out for a LOOONG time though. Oh poo.

wasn't george in the haunting of castle malloy?

Michael Gray said...

Hey, yeah, she WAS in Haunting of Castle Malloy. In any case, the George in this game is a new George.

The culprit's voice is fine, no worries.

can you start posting the videos today?

LOVE,Joanna
P.S i got it and i my stuck

Tallulah said...

Personally, I think George is a bit... well... ugly. No offense to George, I think she is a GREAT character. I like Castle Malloy, it was the first game I played out of the ND series.

I'm sad because my library will take a long time to get the game!Can anybody suggest wherelse to get the game? Thank you!

Viv said...

Turkeys, down. Ha ha. Hey everyone go to my blog at www.thegalacticgeek.blogspot.com

Tallulah said...

Yeah, my library will probably not have it for a while, either. VIV!!! WE MUST LEARN THE THRILLER DANCE!!!

Viv said...

I already know it. Well, I took the moves from it and made my own dance. It pretty much is the Thriller dance, just the moves are in a different order. And even when they do get the new ND in there will be a hundred people waiting for it. Unless you buy it, it's going to take a LOOONG time until you get it, let alone play it.

Tallulah said...

Oh. Did you already do it with someone else? It's ok if you did, I'm just wondering. So you know the whole thing in the right order? I guess I'll just have to buy it then.

Viviana said...

Yes, I made the Thriller and the Billie Jean dance with the same person. I do not know the entire thing in the right order, so maybe I can do that with you.

Tallulah said...

Oh. Ok. Who was it, if you don't mind my asking?

Viv said...

My next-door neighbor. The older one. Not the one that you know.

OMG! I wanna know who is the culprit!!!! tell me!

Viviana said...

NO! not for everyone to see!

Tallulah said...

No!!! That spoils the game! Oh, Viv, do you mean Em? Didn't know she was an MJ fan.

George kind of looks like someone put their hands on either side of her face and pushed.
A little bit like in Ella Enchanted when the stepmother Dame Olga got that "batox" stuff. o_0

Patricia said...

Michael, where did you get the game? you probably already answerd this , but still, i'd like to know.MJ does rock.On BRITAINS GOT TALENT on YouTube, theres this guy who does this cool MJ dance . check it out.
" Don't let the turkeys get you down!"

Tallulah said...

He does not, Miriam!!! That's so mean! I think Michael looks just fine, no, I think he looks perfect. I love MJ. Glad you agree with me and Viv, Patricia :D My dad and I really really really like MJ, we are both HUGE fans, but my mama isn't really that much of a fan, she likes some of his music, but yeah... not sure how to explain. Leaving for camp tomorrow, I will miss this blog so so much :( I need my daily dose of Michael, and if I don't get it I don't know what's going to happen. :(

Viv said...

She was talking about George from the game not Michael, Tallulah. I LOVE MJ!!! <3 Don't leave me Tallulah!

Tallulah said...

Oh. Heehee. In that case, I agree with you, Miriam. Sorry, I thought you meant Michael's character person from one of his youtube videos. Viv! You MUST come over! Ten oclock! I'll call you! GO MJ! :( :( :( I'm going to miss you so so much, I wish they had internet so I could still chat with you and blog and do that groovy stuff!

Vianczericious said...

Wow! I really love your videos Micheal! I just wish there were more people like you in the world, I mean if there were more enthusiastic, joyful, kind, and someone who is as crazily dumbfounded(well for a postitive way , like, in love with Nancy drew and fascinated with her work*partly ours too*) with these games and mysteries full of sad, happy, emotional, humiliating, dunny, scary , mysterious, crazy, wild (etc.)ways of expressing the truth!!! Though it is pretty hard to solve those puzzles, it still gives some thrill! I can tell how hard it is by how red my head is becoz of scratcing my brain out for the answers and I finally found your videos which helped me a lot from all the games!!! Im obsessed already!!! Thanks again and happy playing! :D "SMILE as LONG as a NILE" :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD (still aint long as a nile...darn)
