Wallace & Gromit & Indy take on consoles, Macs get a Vampyre Attack

It's been a while since I updated this page, so I'll catch up a bit. :)

First, the biggest news is that Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures will be coming to the PC and Xbox Live Arcade this spring. This is the first time a Telltale Game has been available on the Xbox Live Arcade service (although this is not the first Telltale game to appear on the Xbox 360). Telltale's blog also hinted that future game announcements for the Xbox Live Arcade will be coming later on!

In Autumn Moon news, MacOS X gamers can now play A Vampyre Story. You can buy the download version at Deliver2Mac.

And, lastly, I certainly didn't see this coming. The new Indiana Jones action-adventure Tomb-Raideresque game Staff of Kings will have Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis available as an unlockable. According to Amazon, the game will be available for Playstation 2, PSP, Wii, and Nintendo DS. It is not known if all of these systems will be getting Fate of Atlantis, or if this is the action game or the better-known and better-recieved adventure game. If this is the adventure game, I'll be very surprised. I never expected LucasArts to rerelease their adventure games for PC, let alone port them to consoles. I hope it is the classic SCUMM game, and I hope that it's a sign of more classic game rereleases to come. Fingers crossed.
