LucasArts and Telltale Games have gotten together to celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day, clearly a day which demands national holiday status.

Taking place on September 19th as always (but of course you already knew that!) Telltale will celebrate by offering you something awesome- a free copy of the first Tales of Monkey Island episode! Check it out at

Along with that they’ve swashbuckled the price of the Secret of Monkey Island remake in half on both iPhone and Steam versions of the game. Sorry, Xbox owners- Microsoft wants that cash.

Anyway, if you’ve been on the fence about checking these out there’s no more excuses. You just can’t beat free. The first two episodes of Tales of Monkey Island have been a blast so far, with some incredibly witty dialogue and smart puzzles, and we’ve got lots to look forward to in the series. Like Murray!
