E3 09′: Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition

secretmonkeyJust annouced at E3 09′  from LucasArts, the remake of the original Secret of Monkey Island. I’m a huge fan of the Moneky Island series and all of the classic LucasArts adventure games. The remake stays completely faithfull to the original with high-res graphics, updated audio and voice acting. And while in gameplay, you can switch between the original game’s graphics and audio on the fly. Very cool stuff and is definitely on my radar.

I really hope this will start a trend from LucasArts to begin re-releasing their classics.

Peggle in World of Warcaft

Pass those boring WoW moments with artificialy added fun!

Pass those boring WoW moments with artificialy added fun!

A “marvelous” new add-on for World of Wacraft, now you can play the popular PopCap game Peggle in your World of Warcraft interface.

I’ve said this before with Bejewled and I will say it again, if you need some artificial way to kill time inside of your game because it’s boring, that then is bad… no, horrible design. It’s like injecting a tasty marinade in really poor quality meat. It may have added flavor, but in the end it’s still a bad steak.

Sorry Blizzard, but you get another Fail count.
