Telltale has posted a link on its site to a Sam and Max teaser suggesting that Season 3 will take the crime fighting duo into Space.
There’s even a sound clip talking all philosophical and such through here.
It’s possible. The duo has already met Santa and Satan, so it’s not that far-fetched.

Each of the six episodes for Blue Toad Murder Files on PSN will last around 90 minutes each, according Relentless’ Paul Woodbridge.
“As this is a social game it is important that each episode doesn’t last too long,” he told PS3attitude. “We came to a decision that around 90 minutes was a good time, and that six episodes would be enough to tell our story.
“This also happens to be very similar to television which is important for us. We don’t want to alienate people who may not play a lot of games, but are comfortable with watching an episode of Midsummer Murders.”
Each episode will require you to think about alibis, motives, and witnesses as you investigate murders and interrogate residents in the village of Little Riddle.
There’s a bit more there through the link, with the full interview with Woodbridge to be posted tomorrow.

WiiWare sales of Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People have doubled since the release of the new Wii storage solution, Telltale said today.
“Nintendo’s new solution really opens the door for players to add to their collection of downloadable games, which is critical for a series with multiple installments,” said CEO Dan Connors.
“This is a major step forward for episodic gaming. We’re looking forward to even greater success on WiiWare with Strong Bad, as well as other projects.”
Nintendo’s new option to play games directly from the SD card gives gamers the option to store the first five episodes of the game, which Telltale obviously recommends.
Press release is below.

American McGee’s Grimm Volume 3 is starting to wind down, what with only two episodes left after this week’s offering of Sleeping Beauty.
In Grimm’s sordid version of the fairy tale, a socially awkward witch puts a kingdom to sleep for 100 years. This promises to be the longest episode yet.
Also, Just Cause has been added to the free-to-play list, but only until March 26.
That should get you pumped until Just Cause 2 comes out sometime this year.
GameTap’s offerings can be found here, and if you are chintzy and don’t wanna spend the cash on a subscription, just play the free ones.

The ESRB has rated the next installment of Watchmen: The End is Nigh as an M, dropping details in the process.
Part II sees the return of Rorschach and Nite Owl who go around and beat up “bikers, gang members, and thugs” with crowbars, baseball bats and knives it seems.
Storyline revolves around “a villain who has molested an actress appearing in a pornography film” and players will get to frequent a strip club, complete with go-go dancers in a cage and booths specializing in peep shows.
There’s an adult film playing in the background of the club, but according to the ESRB nothing can be seen. You will, however, hear “moaning and suggestive dialogue (‘Ohhh, it’s so big!) echoing from the film”.
