Yeah, I'm just as sick of all of this iPad game talk as the next guy, but here's a good case for the device -- a new way to experience point and click adventure games.

Telltale Games has launched "The Penal Zone," the first episode of the upcoming Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse series, for the iPad.

"Sam & Max just feels right on iPad," said Kevin Bruner, CTO, Telltale Games. "The gameplay experience is incredibly intimate and tactile. Playing the game on iPad truly feels different to anything else."

Sure, he has to say that. But in my head, I can see where he's coming from, and it has me excited for the possibilities. I've sent Dale after Telltale CEO Dan Connors to talk about the app and the future of Telltale's iPad work, so keep an eye out for more on that soon.

"The Penal Zone" is available for download now, and will run you $9.99.

Music-making game Cosmic DJ has a corgi in it!

This past weekend, I found myself running through the crowds of the PAX East show floor, pushing people out of the way to get to the Indie Megabooth, where Cosmic DJ was waiting for me. As a musician and a fan of music games I would have sought it out anyway. But I found out via Twitter that the game features a corgi, so I took off running.more
