Double Fine's newest game, Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, is out today, which means if you know someone with a kid (or an adult who still acts like a kid), and that kid's parents just happen to own an Xbox 360 and Kinect, you now have the perfect Christmas present for that child. Like the tv show the title is pulled from, there will be an emphasis on learning, except that it is interactive.

I may not be as pumped for Sesame Street as I was at the tender age of five, but I like the idea behind this, plus its made by Double Fine, which is good for any and everyone. You can pick up Once Upon a Monster for $49.99 now, and it's okay if you buy it for yourself. I won't judge you.

Thank you, Double Fine, for giving me the opportunity to write about Sesame Street without feeling totally guilty afterward.

That's a week after Dark Souls drops in North America. Let the recovery process begin!

In this remarkably adorable video, Double Fine's Tim Schafer pitches a videogame to Cookie Monster. A few things in particular made me feel all warm and fuzzy: Cookie Monster's iPhone has a Cookie Monster sleeve Cookie Monster calls Tim Schafer "kid" Eating cookies.
