Despite being a huge fan of the classic LucasArts adventures - indeed, I recall my gushing reviews of the likes of Day of the Tentacle and the original Sam & Max back in the early 90s - it wasn't until this week that I found myself tempted to check out Telltale Games' efforts at reinvigorating the genre.
I downloaded the XBLA release of Wallace & Gromit on Thursday night and immediately felt a nostalgic warmth wash over. From the expressive character animation to the witty banter to the appropriately absurdist puzzles, Telltale has done a wonderful job.
I hear Sam & Max is even better, so I grabbed the whole season and can't wait to rekindle my old friendship with the dopey dog and homicidal rabbit.
What have you decided to play this weekend?
