Wallace & Gromit fans played for saps at UK retail 21 Jan, 2011 / 4 comments

In North America, the retail release for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventures was almost identical to the collector's DVD Telltale offered to season subscribers, minus the "almost." In the characters' home country, however, things are a little bit different. Mastertronic, the publisher responsible for bringing Telltale's adventure game to UK stores, has seen fit to bifurcate the four episode season into a pair of boxed releases. Recently released is the second pack, finally fulfilling that waking dream you had of getting the series for two easy payments of £10.20!

Not sure what you Brits did to cheese off Mastertronic so much, but they clearly hold you in pretty low esteem. I don't even think Monty Muzzle has the nerve to attempt to pull a stunt of such transparent greed. Fortunately, you're likely to find the games for well under the sticker price but really. Two releases? Almost never have I seen such silliness.

    Yes, but what lovely boxes! They will look great lining your wall!

    I have no idea what 'Der Hummel-Fluch' means, but it sounds HILARIOUS!



    Hummel = bumblebee
    Fluch = curse (it's a play on words like in the English Fright/Flight, Flucht would have been be flight)

    It's even worse in Germany where each of the episodes is a separate boxed release retailing for 13 euro's each!



    Yikes!
