Much to the chagrin of our PC/PS3 loving editor Ryan Wilson, it looks like the newest addition to the Monkey Island franchise might just make an appearance in the Xbox Live Marketplace. According to Dave Grossman (the man who makes these decisions at Telltale Games), omission does not exactly mean that they won’t do it…he […]
