Update April 9: It's out on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 in North America and PSN for PS3 in Europe. iOS is scheduled to get the game on the 10th of April.

Update: It is now available on Steam and PSN on PS3 in North America too.

There's good news for people who ordered The Wolf Among Us from the Telltale store. Episode 3: A Crooked Mile is out now on the Telltale store for PC and Mac, as the game has received a rare midnight release. The game will be released later today on Steam and on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 in North America, tomorrow on Xbox 360, and some time this week for iOS as well.

Update 2/6: Microsoft is sending out download codes to those who purchased the season pass for The Wolf Among Us on XBLA. Check your Live inbox for the message. If you haven't received yours yet, you should be getting it soon.

Update 2/5: It's out on XBLA and on PSN in Europe now too. There's apparently a problem with season passes on XBLA, where the system will not let you download episode 2 if you purchased a season pass. Do not click to buy episode 2, as you will be charged twice. Microsoft updated their Xbox live status page stating that they are working on it now, and should have a fix out by tomorrow.

Update 2/4: It's out on the Telltale Games store, Steam, and on PlayStation Network in North America now.

The Telltale Blog has just been updated with release dates for The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke and Mirrors.

It will be released on February 4th for PC, Mac, and PSN in North America, and on February 5th for PSN in Europe and XBLA. The iOS version will be released next week as well. The Vita version won't be releasing at that time, as there's still no word on the Vita release of episode one (nor is there any word on the Vita version of The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 1 for that matter).

Since the release date of the second episode of The Wolf Among Us is looming, Telltale has released the trailer for the game, which they have tagged as a red band trailer due to the violent and sexual content within. The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke & Mirrors will be released some time next week.

Telltale's co-founder and president Kevin Bruner just posted on the Telltale forums that The Wolf Among Us episode 2 will finally be released in the first week of February.

He had the following to say about the delay:

Ep 2 should be available the first week of February. We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we’re confident enough to announce that here. The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!). We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays). I won't dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season.

So there you have it. First week of February!

My Alien Buddy, Double Fine's free downloadable content for Sony's augmented reality game The Playroom, was released on Christmas Eve. It's an augmented reality mini-game where you play with deformable alien toys.

Double Fine previously developed Happy Action Theater and Kinect Party, which were both among the best reviewed games for the Kinect, so this is probably worth checking out if you own a PlayStation 4 and a PlayStation Camera. Plus, you can't beat the price.

The Walking Dead: Season Two Episode 1: All That Remains is out now for most platforms. It's available for PC and Mac through Steam and the Telltale Store, for Xbox 360's Live Arcade and PS3's PlayStation Network in Europe and North America, and on iTunes (where the title gets even larger as Walking Dead: The Game - Season Two).

Telltale's PR Person Laura Perusco posted in the PlayStation blog that news about the PlayStation Vita release will be coming shortly after the holidays. There's no word on the release date for the Ouya version (although The Walking Dead: Season One is scheduled to be released on Ouya in Winter 2014, so it won't be releasing sooner than that).

Telltale announced today that The Walking Dead: Season Two will premiere later this year. It is available for preorder for PC and MAC from the official site. The press release reveals a bit about what we can expect:

Telltale PR

The Walking Dead: Season Two - A Telltale Games Series will continue the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad. Now assuming the role of an ordinary child, players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.

There's also a trailer:

A Game of the Year Edition of the first season will also be released next month for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. It will include the 400 Days DLC as well as the soundtrack and a behind the scenes video.

Telltale Games is continuing their goal to port the engine that runs all their games, the LUA based Telltale Tool, to every platform as is possible.

The first season of The Walking Dead (including the 400 Days DLC) is now available for PlayStation Vita. It's also coming to Ouya this Winter.

The Walking Dead Season Two, which will be penned by lead writer Nick Breckon, is also coming to Ouya, as well as PlayStation 4.

The Wolf Among Us, Telltale's episodic series based on Bill Willingham's Fables comics, will begin it's season in the Autumn for PC, Mac, XBLA, and PSN. If you were lucky enough to get tickets before they sold out, Telltale will have the first episode, Faith, playable at their booth at PAX Prime this weekend.

Microsoft announced the games coming to Xbox Live in the US in the next few weeks, and Jurassic Park: The Game is scheduled to come out on Xbox Live On Demand on April 10.

So far, there's no news about an international release, but since the non-Telltale published European retail Xbox 360 version was cancelled in Europe, the presence of an online version in the US is a still-slim chance that European Xbox 360 owners may receive this game through a Telltale published online release.

Kinect Star Wars is in Stores Now

03 Apr, 2012, 12:40 | Posted by: Jennifer | Comments: 4
If you ever wanted to dance with Han Solo to Jason Derulo's "Ridin' Solo", then there's good news for you. Kinect Star Wars is in stores now.

The reviews so far say that the dancing mini-game, the rancor destruction mini-game, and the pod racing mini-games are fun, but the game's most anticipated feature, the Jedi fighting mini-games, are unresponsive, making the game overall a let down.

Double Fine's Psychonauts was one of the first games in Microsoft's short lived Xbox Originals line for the Xbox 360. But while the other games in the line are still available to purchase through the Xbox Live Marketplace, Psychonauts was removed last August without notice.

Tim Schafer explained that the reason it was removed was due to the rights to Psychonauts transferring from Majesco to Double Fine. Microsoft policy is that games without licensed publishers aren't allowed on the Xbox 360 (outside of the Indie Games), so it was removed.

Double Fine is working on getting the game back up, but as of this month they've still been having problems since Double Fine doesn't technically meet the requirements to be an Xbox 360 publisher (most notably due to a lack of disposable cash). So even though the game was one of Microsoft's flagship products in the Xbox Originals line, it's no longer available (and likely won't be available again any time soon) due to bureaucracy and red tape.

Update: Psychonauts is back on Xbox Live Marketplace, now published by Microsoft (bringing the game full circle). I also checked on my Xbox 360 to be double sure, and it is indeed back.

Update 2: It seems the game is only available on the Xbox Live Marketplace in North America (thanks Pedgey). Double Fine is aware of this and is working on getting Microsoft to re-add the game in other territories as well.

Enough about the Star Wars Kinect game that Craig Derrick's producing just to confuse the management while secretly advancing that lofty goal of rejuvenating adventure games...let's talk about Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, the Double Fine Kinect game headed by Nathan Martz. There was a demo on display at E3 and a bit more info on how the game is going to play.

Like any other E3 story, a write-up can be found on like 500 game sites, but let's go with VentureBeat since they did a video interview with Nathan Martz and Tim that you can watch. And below from Youtube is the live presentation of the demo by guided by Schafer and co-played by some kid followed by a new trailer featuring gameplay:

This week there's a sale on a few Xbox Live Arcade games, including a couple of favourites: Costume Quest and Monkey Island 2: Special Edition. Both are half-price for this week only - Costume Quest is 600 Microsoft Points and Monkey Island 2 is 400.

Costume Quest is excellent, but I presume everyone's already got Monkey Island 2 on PC. And if you haven't, well, I can't really recommend buying it as it'll mean giving money to LucasArts, and they really hate it when people do that.

In a move that's sure to delight parents with a taste for the fine wine that is Double Fine, it's been revealed that the next game to come from Tim Schafer's unstoppable studio is Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.

The game is being developed exclusively for Kinect, Microsoft's creepy body-reading device for the Xbox 360, which means you get to not only enjoy the exquisite experience of playing a Double Fine game with your children — or by yourself should you be particularly into The Muppets — but you also get to look like a dong get fit while doing so!

On a slightly more forward-thinking note, hopefully Double Fine getting more well-known licenses under its belt will give it the funds and clout it requires to develop more of the kind of games we've all been gagging for the studio to develop (Psychonauts 2).

Whether or not this game is part of the infamous 'Amnesia Fortnight' collection is unclear. Considering Ron Gilbert's experience with children's games it's very much possible he's leading this project, meaning we could still see the promised four games in addition to Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.

You know Stacking, Double Fine's next game, is out next week right? 8th February? It will cost £11.99/1200 Microsoft Points. Apparently though, a certain group of people will be getting it for free: Playstation Plus members.

If you don't know it, Playstation Plus is Sony's recently introduced paid online subscription service - similar to Xbox Live Gold. To entice people to pay a premium for a service that's otherwise free, they offer a monthly free downloadable game. Stacking is this month's free game, which will be given the same day as release.

Great if you're already on the service, but the best thing about it is that it's official support from a console manufacturer, so should hopefully bring Double Fine to a much bigger crowd - and that's a very good thing indeed.
