Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster  



New Once Upon a Monster trailer is good old family fun


11:00 PM on 08.12.2011



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.
