You see what happens when the grown-ups at Lucasfilm aren't paying attention? Something unrelated to Star Wars gets through.

Behold, your Golden Train Ticket has arrived. No more wandering around for years as you pass through the land of the dead. Harkening back to the instant "Win Game" button of yesteryear comes this ticket, by way of iam8bit's Nintendo Switch version of Grim Fandango Remastered. But not just any release, but one that comes with feelies in the box, like the good old days. Now you can secure your very own Golden Train Ticket by bribing spending real money, just like characters in the game! And also, you can look as suave as Manny with your new Calavera Cafe matchbook -- but that is actually a notebook. Take down all of your game notes within it and soon you'll be remembering to dig through kitty litter with a magnet in no time.

Head on over to iam8bit's website to see what Manny has in store for you. I sure hope you've been a good person in your life. Otherwise... enjoy this walking stick.

Word is making the rounds that principal photography on Indiana Jones 5 will wrap February 23rd.

Sure, that still leaves Harrison Ford plenty of time to kamikaze a golf course for kicks, necessitating his replacement by a digital sock puppet, and the release date remains the better part of 18 months away. But it's still a noteworthy milestone for a project that was looking as downright cancellable as an adventure game under Jim Ward on about four hundred different occasions throughout its fraught development.

So, congratulations to the crew on getting this thing safely in the can. Now it falls to the post-production team, but the news is good there, too: Insider buzz is that they’ve heard the feedback from the last installment and have vowed to redouble their efforts and make Mutt’s vine-swinging absolutely perfect this time out.

Tomorrow, on Wednesday, February 9th we will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how the new TellTale Games has been working hard on Fables: A Wolf Among Us Season Two. They've been in pre-production on Season Two since Dec 2019 using the Unreal engine while keeping a pretty consistent look between the two games.



Geoff Keighley will be our host to bring us this latest coverage of the game, and appears to be simulcast on Twitch, YouTube, IGN, GameInformer, and then later-cast by a late news post on Mojo tomorrow night. So be on the lookout for more Fables information coming to you on Wednesday February 9th at 10am PST, 1pm EST, 6pm GMT.

Everyone watching the latest in Star Wars on Disney+? Are you all caught up without any more Boba Fett to watch? Why not checkout some Star Wars 1313 demo reel animations that were uploaded to Vimeo a mere two to eight years ago? Mojo (and other news sites) were apparently just waiting for the right moment.


Over on James Zachary's Vimeo page, he announces that he directed the in-game animation for Star Wars 1313 along with running the motion capture performances and the actual animation pipeline for the game. For a game from "a long time ago..." I would say that the graphics on the more final rendered videos sure look good.


And maybe I'm just jealous that I wasn't the news poster to post about the Maniac Mansion claymation model from the Nintendo Power cover, so for more of a write-up on this, you can perhaps read Kotaku - Canceled Star Wars Game Footage Teases Boba Fett Bounty Hunting Action.
