They're remaking The Secret of Monkey Island, one of the best PC games ever. They're not changing the plot or anything, just the UI and graphics, it seems. Check the trailer here. I think this looks fantastic.

Speaking of remakes, on July 22nd, Ubisoft is dropping Turtles in Time Re-shelled on the Xbox Live Arcade. The game is (obviously) a remake of the classic SNES game, TMNT: Turtles in Time. Some screenshots are available over at Epic Battle Axe. The 3D is cool, though I would have preferred just a 2D HD update, a la Super Street Fighter 2 HD Remix that Capcom put out on the XBLA last year.

Speaking of the Xbox, one of the things Microsoft announced at E3 was Twitter and Facebook integration on their popular gaming console. Maybe if I were cool enough to own the Xbox 360 keyboard attachment, that would seem cool. As I'm not, it doesn't.

Universal is making a film based on Where's Waldo?. Hrm.

I was thinking the 8-bit version looked better. Then they mentioned being able to switch back and forth in game from the new version to the original. Absolutely brilliant! With any luck this will inspire Sierra to dust off a few quest games.
