I will get the BTTF one if and only if they have a segment at the end of the 3rd part where you get to push the DeLorean with the train to 88 mph. I don't care if it's just holding a key down, it'll still be awesome.

I don't know if you actually watched the first video but this game takes place shortly after the events of BTTF 3.  So, I wouldn't count on that.
I just found that out a while back. I'll still enjoy it.

I've already pre-ordered Back To The Future.  I'm pretty excited.  I participated in a survey awhile back that was basically about what people expected from this game in terms of story and characters, and included several story ideas that they were supposedly considering.  One I was really excited about, the others I wasn't so sure of, but I know and trust Telltale enough that even if the story doesn't wow me when I first hear about it, I'm sure the actual execution will turn out great.

Who else has been playing Telltale's Bejeweled-clone-with-a-BTTF-skin on Facebook?

I felt deeply ashamed actually installing a game on Facebook, but I'm a tiny bit addicted. I'm frustrated, though; last week my high score was 2,878,050, but I guess the scores reset every week...so now my high score is a measly 137,400. Annoying. :P

I like those adventure games but, I would really like to drive the Delorean around Hill Valley GTA style and then take it up to 88 a couple times.  That would be fun.  Maybe fly it around a bit too.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Wish... granted!

For those who preordered BTTF, Telltale's exclusive preorder forum now lists the names of the episodes. I can't share them here, but I'm intrigued.

So, BTTF continues to be extremely simple gameplay-wise, but MAN, is the story getting good.

Also, Jurassic Park got pushed back to release simultaneously on all platforms.I hope this means it'll have fewer bugs than most Telltale releases. :P

I'm so behind on BTTF. I just inished Episode 2 yesterday. Is it me, or was that one unusually short, even for Telltale? Anyway I don't find myself caring about length or challenge because the story, like doggans said, is getting really good. Based on Telltale's past, it's going to keep getting better too. :^)

I'm re-playing episodes 1-3, so don't spoil things for me.

Hmmm...interesting.  Be funny how he and A.J. sound head to head, if that's what happens.

Just finished Episode 4...I have to say...(ONLY READ IF YOU PLAYED THROUGH EP 4 OR DON'T CARE ABOUT THE PLOT)

You think this one was dark, try their Tales of Monkey Island.  That one was darker in places than Monkey Island 2, which up to that point was probably the darkest game in the series.  But they still managed to pull off an upbeat ending that was mostly satisfying.  (And the only unsatisfying part of it was that it hinted at a second season that at this point might never happen.)  Or try Sam & Max season 3.  The last episode is among the most emotional and bittersweet installments in any of their games, which you wouldn't think would work in the Sam & Max universe, but it does.

Yeah, people can (And do) argue the quality of puzzles Telltale has been cranking out lately, but it's hard to deny that they're mastering the whole storytelling aspect of adventure gaming. There are very real emotions stirred when (Without giving anything away to the uninitiated) Guybrush and Morgan were exchanging meaningful looks at the beginning of ToMI Episode 4, or the beautiful pause after Max's gleeful "It was horrible." at the end of S&M Season 3. Telltale can really tell a tale.

While the Telltale topic is bumped, here's some E3 impressions of Jurassic Park:
