Telltale Games is getting resurrected!

https://www.telltale.com/press-release/

They're going to have a more "streamlined" business model. Unfortunately they lost most of their big licensing deals when they went under, so right now they have Batman, The Wolf Among Us, and Puzzle Agent.

Maybe there's hope for Wolf Among Us 2 after all!

Glad it's under new management - I hope the company isn't toxic again this time. Where did you read about the IPs? Because the one I want more of is Puzzle Agent. Are they just releasing, or did they say it was new stuff?
FINE

CNET reported which licenses they still have:

And that seems to be backed up based on what titles are still for sale at http://www.telltalegames.com.

Honestly if all we get out of this is more Wolf Among Us and Puzzle Agent, I'll be a happy man.

Finally, a game to go with my two copies of Duck Game (BTW, if you've never played Duck Game, it's great.  Think 8-bit Smash Brothers meets Golden Eye.)

So Nintendo has been slipping the word "Sunshine" into a lot of their official communications, leading to lots of rampant speculation. The latest is Isabelle reminding everyone to get some Sunshine before Fall begins.

That one pushed me over the line. I'm officially getting my hopes up.

And Nintendo's adding SNES to the Nintendo Online lineup! In addition to big expected titles, little fan favorites like Stunt Race FX and Joe and Mac 2 are being included. There will be a matching Joycon for $30. Service starts tomorrow. It's not even E3, but Nintendo is winning E3 somehow.

EDIT: Here's the lineup (Oooh! Super EDF. I've had a weird craving for that game for a while now!):

Wait, so, if I had forgotten to cancel my Nintendo online service like I was going to because I never used it, then I’ll have access to all those games?  Or will I have to pay extra?  Cause I could definitely play some Super Mario World. Haven’t played that since I was given an snes after I agree to stop sucking my thumb.

Nintendo announced a bunch of cool stuff today. There's a "Free-to-Start" Kirby game hitting the switch later today, they're releasing Tokyo Mirage Sessions # FE for Switch with some new music and characters and whatnot, Jedi Knight II is hitting Switch, Deadly Premonition (Now on Switch) is getting a sequel (also on Switch), Xenoblade Chronicles is getting a "Definitive Edition," Animal Crossing is going to have crafting, which sounds dangerous, More Tetris DLC, Pokémon is gonna be awesome, Doom 64, Divinity 2, Little Town Hero, Return of the Obra Dinn looks fascinating, and also there's some other stuff.

Yup. Forgetting to cancel your subscription gets you all that to play whenever. (With more being added regularly.) Resubscribing also gets you all that...
