First Look at TellTale’s Jurassic Park

TellTale recently spilled the beans, and some screenshots, to Game Informer about their upcoming downloadable title, Jurassic Park!

Like TellTale’s other titles, Jurassic Park will be released in five episodes. Unlike many of TellTale’s other titles, Jurassic Park is actually taking a much more serious tone.

Universal choose Telltale as a developer because of their desire to focus more on the human side of the Jurassic Park series, rather than on guns and shooting dinosaurs. Instead, TellTale is going for a gameplay style similar to that of Heavy Rain, focusing more on a cinematic presentation of your actions and altering the story based on your choices.

TellTale notes two play styles will most likely have a heavy presence in the release:  Slow paced investigation sequences, and more high action moments as you try to escape velociraptors, the T-Rex, and some all new dinosaurs.

As mentioned before, you can check out the first screenshots plus some concept art over at Game Informer along with an in-depth look at the project.

Telltale’s Poker Night at the Inventory Trailer

I think anyone who sees a poker game with franchise characters slapped all over it is skeptical of the release. Sure, there’s bound to be some fan service and funny dialog, but how long does it last? Eventually, it is just poker. Of course, that doesn’t mean TellTale’s Poker Night at the Inventory can’t go beyond that, I’m just a bit concerned.

Anyways, after the jump you can find yourself a lovely preview of some of the dialog between the title’s four characters: The Heavy from Team Fortress 2, Strong Bad from HomeStar Runner, Max from Sam & Max, and Tycho from Penny Aracde. Good stuff, but I think the real draw for the title are the exclusive Team Fortress 2 items from the title. Those who preorder the title even get a poker hat for Team Fortress 2 as well.

The title comes out this month on PC and MAC, and will available for $4.95.

Sam & Max Season 2 and Axel & Pixel available on XBLA wednesday

I don’t see XBLA updates all that often but I try to grab them when I see them. Wednesday Axel & Pixel (800 points) will be available along with Sam & Max Season 2 (1600 points).

I don’t really know much about Axel & Pixel, but Sam & Max is developed by Telltale Games which from what I understand has been doing a great job of reviving franchises and replicating their feel. So if you enjoyed past Sam & Max games before you may want to give Season 2 a shot. You should probably play Season 1 first though.
