Telltale's episodic Law & Order game coming Fall 2011

Telltale has announced that their upcoming game based on the Law & Order franchise will be coming out in Fall 2011, and that it will be episodic rather than straight to retail like its CSI games. The post doesn't mention the Los Angeles moniker (the show was cancelled shortly after Telltale's LA: LO game announcement), but at this point Telltale hasn't mentioned whether it will be based on Los Angeles, the main franchise (which itself ended in 2010), or the only surviving franchise (outside of Law & Order: UK) Law & Order: SVU.

Pay What You Want For Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle

The Humble Indie Bundle, where you pay what you want for a package of indie games and decide how to split your money between the developers and charity, is back in the form of the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle.

This bundle originally started out only including the game Frozen Synapse, but now it includes Space Chem, and the adventure game Trauma. In Trauma, you enter the mind of a woman who has been hospitalized after a car accident and try to make sense out of the images of her dreams.

If you pay more than the average price, you also get the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle, which, while it doesn't include any adventure games, includes the games Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, the prototype game Jack Claw, and a preorder for the puzzle game Splot.
