The data to play the first new Psychonauts adventure in more than a decade? February 21st.
Look forward to a Mojo review as soon as a) somebody gets a headset and b) they actually get around to writing something about the game.
Or hey, maybe a non-VR compatibility mode will be developed, so the rest of us can enjoy the game, too?
Hey, we’re back! You might have thought we had been back for a while, but as our admin feature wasn’t working… Well, that’s neither here nor there.
So what’s happening? First, Xbox Gold members will be able to download Monkey Island 2 for free from February 1-15. You do, of course, already own the game, but it’s worth nabbing anyway—it plays well on the platform. And from February 16-28 you can get Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, lovingly known as STFU around these parts.
More importantly: Our very own elTee spawned last week, and is the proud father of a baby boy, Johnny D Tones (I think was the name). Congratulations to him from all of us!
Disney (or, but probably not, Telltale) is trying its damnedest to keep you away from Tales of Monkey Island, or, as they like to call it on iOS, Monkey Island Tales HD. Turns out you can still get it on the App Store for iOS, so we can only assume they had forgotten about the platform when the censorship started.
It confounds Mojo’s investigative office how this all is going down. Did Telltale’s license run out for all platforms but iOS? Or is this all part of…
Bonus badge to those who get the last reference; bonus bonus point if you can find the image for me. - Jennifer claims those points. No bonus bonus points for you.
We're now a week into 2017, which means it's the perfect time for a new poll. We couldn't just put one up on the first day of the new year. That's just not The Mojo Way™.
There's a lot of goodness coming out this year, from just about every company that this site covers. So go to the poll on the right and let us know which one has you excited the most.
The debate was RAGING in the comments, but Telltale hasn't run out of steam yet.
With "A New Frontier" we get a very promising Walking Dead opener. Read our review.
Look, I tried. I tried to like it, I even tried to hate it, but there is absolutely so little to Batman. If you've played any other Telltale game over the last five years you know what you'll get. That's about it.
But hey, read the rest of the review if you so would like.
There have been big changes afoot over at AdventureGamers.com. Changes in management, and now, changes in logo. Few would contest the greatness of the longstanding original logo, designed by Bill Tiller himself. Thankfully, the powers-that-be at AG are not among those despicable few, and they were thus smart enough to reach back out to Bill when they decided a logo revamp was in order. Behold:
Let's just quote our friends at Birth. Movies. Death. on this one:
"If you've got a PlayStation 4, a PlayStation Plus account and you have exceptionally good taste in video games, you need to be aware that LucasArts' classic adventure game, Day Of The Tentacle, will be free to own during the month of January, starting on Tuesday."
Well, if BMD says so, though they accidentally forgot to mention it also was Mojo's Game of the Year in 2016.
Look down in the comments and you will see one Jake Rodkin trolling around, decrying Grim and poo-poo-ing the new Full Throttle trailer.
Oh, and if you own a 360, Mojo Game of the Year… what, 2013?… is free for Gold members. That's The Cave.
