CNETNews has a feature about ILM getting a 2007 Oscar nomination for John Knoll's, ILM visual effects supervisor, and Hal Hickel's, ILM animation supervisor, effects on the Davy Jones character, in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Apart from the feature, is a video interview available where CNETNews talk to John Knoll in his office, the day after the nomination was announced. Even more, there is one image gallery available featuring some ILM work photos and other interesting things, and a second gallery with photos from some interior in the ILM building.

We have an immediate opening for a Wii Systems Programmer. This position will be responsible for implementing our core 3D graphics and audio systems on the Wii. This is a full time position at our San Rafael location.If your Wii programming skills aren't quite up to scratch, maybe a QA / Playtester would be more your scene...
And as an added bonus, Telltale has put up some more Sam & Max tracks for your listening pleasure, including one from episode 3. (It's not the track, but it is indeed great.)
Kind of like climbing the sacred mountain to commune with the gods before descending with a new dispensation for mankind. Or something like that.If you can read German, then this account of the pilgrimage will be more meaningful. The rest of us can just look at the lovely photos.
And as you can't possibly not know, Episode 3 premieres on Gametap one week from now and will show up on Telltale's site 15 days later. It's like it's episodic or something!
ActionTrip: Without revealing too much of the plot, can you tell us what Ep. 3 is about?If Sam shooting somebody isn't enough to make you read the rest, there's no help for you.
Dave Grossman: Sam and Max go in search of a missing mole and have to infiltrate the Toy Mafia to find him. There are gruff guys in pin-stripe suits and an antique meatball sandwich, and Sam has to shoot somebody he likes.
Update: If you're done with that one and think you can somehow handle more, why not check out this other Dave Grossman interview courtesy of the crazy knuckleknobs at ComputerAndVideoGames?
Granted, the vast majority of you might already have made up your minds about Situation: Comedy or at least have decided if you want to buy it or not. That, however, should not stop you from showing some love to our very own Udvarnoky who has written his first review, and it's a classic in its own right.
Read review and then play the game. Everybody wins.
I knew Boris Krinkle was in on it!

No, it's not going to make you feel better, and things will never be the same. But it just might, with a little grace, help make the pain slightly more bearable.
Now let's have a moment of silence.
And what's up with The SCUMM Bar being updated? Somebody should look into that.
