Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

Step into the shoes of the legendary hero, Indiana Jones, in an all new epic adventure! Set in the year 1939, Indiana Jones® and the Staff of Kings™ follows the rogue archaeologist on an all-new globe-trotting quest.

From San Francisco's Chinatown to the lush jungles of Panama, Indy must use his whip, fists and wits to fight through ruthless opposition as he spars with his nemesis, Magnus Völler, in a race for a relic of biblical proportions — the Staff of Moses.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings features completely interactive environments, where players need to call upon their wits and daring to make each spring-loaded environment a weapon in order to dispense of foes in clever and unexpected ways. Also, embark upon thrilling action sequences that remain true to the spirit established in scenes such as Indy's pursuit of the motorcade in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the free-for-all aboard the tank in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Blah blah

Stuff about game I'm not too optimistic about

*blah blah boring bullet points
* For those old-school gamers there is nothing better than unlocking the classic Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis game!

Sadly it's only for the Wii version, but I guess if you want a portable Fate of Atlantis you're probably better off using ScummVM.  Still, sounds pretty cool to be able to bring Fate of Atlantis to living rooms and big screen TVs.

that's cool, but I shudder to think how pixelated it would look on a 46" (or bigger) widescreen TV.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

I was so incredibly psyched when I heard this.  Then I realized I'd probably play a level and have fond, fuzzy memories, then never go back to it.  FoA is one of my all time favorite SCUMM games, topped only by Day of the Tentacle and the first two Monkey Islands.

<perk>  If they up'ed the graphics on FoA, I'd love it.  Story was much better than Crystal Skulls and the play-through intro was perfect IJ fodder.
