    Poor Indy - I bet he now regrets that he chose wisely

    Well, it couldn't be worse than Indy IV... can it?

    A spin-off series that's Mutt. All the time.

    I can definitely see an Indiana Jones saturday morning cartoon coming from this. And, hopefully, they licence indy out to Telltale.
