… And now I have one! »« A victory

I’m selling these fine leather jackets…

I just found out that Telltale Games, the gaming company behind the Sam and Max games and the Homestar Runner game series Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, signed a deal with LucasArts to produce a five-game series called Tales of Monkey Island, AND are going to be remaking the original, Secret of Monkey Island, “Extended Edition”!

Fucking well fine by me. I normally abhor game remakes, as they strip the charm from a game and replace it with “art”. But Telltale has built up a lot of goodwill with me for their handling of both of the mentioned game series they’ve done thus far. They’ve done other stuff I haven’t yet tried, but I have every intention of playing it all. And hell, I’ll go so far as to say that if I were to try to pursue a career in gaming, I’d love to have their name on my resume.

    So much gaming goodness coming out of E3! My wife’s wish list is growing with every day of E3. Can’t wait until Assassin’s Creed II hits the shelves in November.
