Digital downloads are all very well, of course, but there’s just something about the sight of a shelf full of game boxes that makes you think “gosh! If I ever move, I’m going to need two trucks.”
Nevertheless if you go in for all this physical media stuff, TellTale’s episodic Tales of Monkey Island is getting a nice shiny Collector’s Edition just dying to be arranged by alphabetisation or colour-coding. Have a look at the trailer through the break.

Telltale has sent word that the third Tales of Monkey Island episode is to be released on September 29.
Called “Lair of the Leviathan”, it has our hero Guybrush questing for the “voodoo exfoliating La Esponja Grande” inside the body of a massive manatee.
Here’s the description:
“Trapped in the belly of the beast, our hero encounters a surprising band of castaways, including the long-lost (and obsessive-compulsive) explorer Coronado De Cava. Can the Mighty Pirate win the suspicious De Cava’s trust? Will sexy pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay prove to be a ruthless enemy, or an unlikely ally? Will the group find La Esponja Grande in time to save Elaine from the rampant Pox of LeChuck? And will the world be crushed by the gnashing teeth of a certain demonic skull? Tales of Monkey Island’s moist and absorbing third episode, Lair of the Leviathan, will answer some of these urgent questions — and raise still more — as the five month adventure builds to its epic climax!”
Sounds like loads of fun. There are some new screens for the game posted on the official site. You should go have a look.

A Telltale Games programmer has revealed on the firm’s official forums that iPhone is much more powerful than Wii.
The reasoning for the comment stemmed from complaints regarding framerate issues with the WiiWare version of Tales of Monkey Island.
According to a programmer, developers were limited to 40 megs for WiiWare because of hardware and file size restrictions, where as PC titles created were usually around 150 megs.
“The voices and textures are the way they are because we’re limited to 40 megs for WiiWare titles,” he stated. “The PC versions of our games are usually 150+ megs, and most modern games range anywhere from one to ten gigabytes or more. Talk to Nintendo about this one.
“Frame rate issues will probably get sorted out eventually, but keep in mind that the Wii is just not a powerful console. An iPhone is much more powerful than a Wii, even. The Wii and DS are extremely underpowered and their popularity doesn’t remove the hardware limitations.”

Dave Grossman, design director for Telltale Games, has said that Tales of Monkey Island may eventually land on Xbox Live Arcade once the PC and WiiWare versions are out the door.
“We didn’t so much decide not to put it on Xbox Live Arcade as we decided not to put it on XBLA now,” Grossman told Eurogamer. “Normally what we do is PC and one of the other platforms, and we’ve been bouncing back and forth between them.
“Yeah, I mean I wouldn’t rule it out. We might do that one later on.”
Grossman also said that he would like to see it on every platform possible and that includes PS3, Mac and Linux.
“We just haven’t gotten there yet,” he said. “Ultimately, we would like to be on every downloadable channel there is. We think that’s the perfect place for our stuff to be. It was just luck of the draw how the business relationships worked out and what chips were falling where.
“And we have to get our engine working on the [PS3], which is quite a bit of work, so we only want to do one at a time.
“We’ll get there [Mac, Linux], but it’s a matter of how and when and can we actually afford to do it.”
The first episode , Launch of the Screaming Narwhal, lands on PC July 7 with the WiiWare version still to be determined.
