Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween again everyone! Once again, the treats are a-plenty on this holiday! Telltale's Dave Grossman has posted another one of his annual pumpkin pictures in The Pumpkin House of Horrors. He goes all out this year, with a total of eight carved pumpkins in the picture!

Next up, is the Telltale Halloween contest! Thanks to the flood of Monkey Island fans into Telltale's fanbase this year, the contest had more entries than ever! That means that the winner won't be announced until about the second week of November, but it also means there's a lot of really impressive fan art that can be shown off! Check out the Telltale Blog for those! Telltale's been adding more fan drawings in their blog posts every day! Oh, and of course, I entered in the contest again this year. Check out my video "A Telltale Halloween" if you want to. :)

And, for the final piece of Telltale-related Halloween goodies, The 2009 Homestar Runner Halloween cartoon is out!

Brütal Legend Demo is Out for Everyone!

The Brütal Legend demo release party is happening today. Yes, today is the day everyone who didn't pre-order Brütal Legend gets to try the demo out for themselves. A short promo video for the game is also out.

The party will have interviews, a live Twitter Q&A, live axe lessons, and a message from Tim Schafer. And they will also be giving away some goodies! It all happens at Noon PST (GMT -5).

Tim Schafer's 20 year anniversary!

Tim Schafer is celebrating the anniversary of his 20th year in the video game industry with a retrospective of his quest to start a career in the video game industry in 1989, including the much talked about but never seen comic that he drew and included with his job application to LucasArts (then known as Lucasfilm Games).

Congratulations on 20 years Tim! I enjoyed all the games you worked on, even when you were a scummlet on the NES version of Maniac Mansion. Here's to 20 more years! :)
