Hurray for Telltale Games! I'm so glad Guybrush is back!

They did Wallace and Gromit without even trying to look like claymation. Come one, a simple filter that pretends it's claymation would be nicer than the crappy 3D they're doing.

Noe Monkey Island -> couldn't they share the code with LucasArts and do it in lieu of Secret of Monkey Island remake? I really don't understand that.

It might be good though. I'll wait until it's on sale on Steam and grab all episodes altogether!

"They did Wallace and Gromit without even trying to look like claymation"

What do mean? They made it look exactly like the real thing. They even rendered finger print marks on the characters to make it look as if they were really clay.
With regards to the 3D in Monkey Island, I personally like it, but can understand why some ppl miss the classic hand drawn LucasArts style.

Even though I don't like the new 3D style they took, I am just happy to be finally playing as Guybrush Threepwood again :D Specially with the same voice actor !
