DVD releases, more on Telltale’s W&G game, toys and awards!

First off, a UK DVD release date for A Matter of Loaf and Death! It’ll be coming out on March 24th. Alas, while I will be visiting London at that time, there is no word yet on a US release of any kind, so I won’t be coming back to the States to enjoy my own copy.

But fellow US fans don’t despair! There is talk of a release, and while we wait we can snag the 20th Anniversary DVDs of the classics, which I believe is the first time they’re being sold as separate DVDs (I had the old VHSs that came separate, but my DVDs have always been the Collections):

Next, we’ve got some news about the upcoming Wallace and Gromit game from Telltale games

Dave Grossman, a game developer for Telltale who has been involved with the development of classics like  Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, has been interviewed by Wesley Yin-Poole at videogamer.com in a fantastic and very thorough interview discussing the upcoming game: videogamer.com: Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures Interview. Not enough? Grossman also answered several questions for nowgamer.com: nowgamer.com:Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures Q&A. Still not enough? Adventure Gamers has published an in depth article PLUS an interview with Grossman and the CEO of Telltale, Dan Conners: adventuregamers.com: Preview: Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures. Phew!

And that’s not all the news regarding the Telltale game! Issue 17 of Wallace & Gromit’s cracking newsletter reports:
