New Once Upon a Monster trailer is good old family fun

It comes as no surprise that Microsoft has an overly pretentious family enjoying the Kinect in this trailer. Looking past that, the video does a great job showing off how damn fun this game looks. It also gets me all nostalgic and fuzzy inside seeing Elmo and Cookie Monster beautifully rendered in a vibrantly colorful world.

Double Fine has been more experimental than usual lately, but they always know how to craft games packed with memorable characters and spot-on writing while introducing new and interesting gameplay mechanics with each new title. I look forward to the same amount of quality from Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster when it launches for the Kinect on October 11th.
