Tales of Monkey Island Sees Sense

There was a bit of a kerfuffle a while back over Telltale's Monkey Islands not being entirely treated as episodes. In that you could only buy them as a job lot, despite the staggered release dates. Like, duh. American internet-folk will be glad to hear they no longer need to invest in five episodes up-front if they're not entirely sure whether the series is for them, as Amazon is selling these bite-sized retromanced adventure games individually. $8.95 each, which as far as I can tell is in keeping with what Steam and Telltale's e-store charge for single Sam & Max, Strongbad et al instalments. Hopefully this breaking up of Guybrush's bulk will spread to other services and continents soon.
