  • Well, judgment day is finally here, Sam & Max Season 3 fans, in more ways than one. The latest and last installment of The Devil’s Playhouse has pulled into your friendly neighborhood Telltale multiplex. And it is indeed bigger and bolder than the four earlier movies — uh, sorry, I mean games.

  • We’re halfway through the new five-part season three of Sam & Max from Telltale Games, and the plot is beginning to thicken, or congeal, depending on your point of view. In episode one, The Penal Zone, that intergalactic pest, General Skunkape, turned up to search earth for the Toys of Power, which would give him unlimited sway over the universe.

  • I didn't play the original Black Mirror, but I know it's one of those games, like Still Life, that developed something of a cult following. I did play the demo, which I thought was quite atmospherically spooky, with an intriguing, occultish story.

  • I was as happy as anyone to have Sam and Max back after such an extended vacation, but it is true that the first episode (#301, if you’re counting), The Penal Zone, while commendably wacky, did feel a bit on the well-trodden-path side.

  • As I see it, the folks at Telltale were sitting around the office, slapping each other on the back for the success they were having that July with their brand spanking new Monkey Island series when one spoilsport way in the back finally got up the courage to peep, “You know, it’s the last week of July and we still have to finish that fourth installment of Wallace and Gromit . . . don’t we?” “What?” some company bigshot shouts, sloshing himself another glass of champagne. “Wallace and Gromit? Is that that PR firm we hired for Tales of Monkey Island?”

  • The basic story of all the Ankhs has to do with our pal Assil stumbling across, of course, an Ankh. But not just any ankh. This is the god Osiris’s own personal Ankh and the fate of the world depends upon it.

  • Chances are you haven't been keeping track of the awards being handed out at the casual game roundup site jayisgames. I hadn't either, frankly, but in doing a little background research for this review of the latest adventure game from Zombie Cow Studios, I couldn't help noticing that their previous effort, "Ben There, Dan That" not only won the "Best of 2008 Freeware Adventure" category but beat out three very impressive other games for the honor.
