Yeah, Telltale's Sam & Max games are alright but nowhere near as interesting or memorable as the Lucas Arts games. I really like the Sam and Max characters and all, but the new games seem a bit light on puzzle solving and heavy on dry jokes. They'd probably entertain me more if they were a bit edgier, like the old comics. When Max goes crazy in the game, there is a bonking sound and someone falls over. When he went crazy in the comics, someone would be set on fire, shot or eaten alive.

I played all of Season 1 but I haven't gotten Season 2 yet. I have over a dozen brand new games laying here waiting to be played, and nowhere near enough time to play them.

I didnt mind Sam and Max in 3D, but i DO mind Monkey Island in 3D heh...
just like K007 said, i wish if the episodic is more MI3'ish rather than MI4'ish ... i'm still getting all of 'em though

MI should work well in Episodes. After all the games were always broken into parts.

I can't wait for the new remake of MI. It was my favorite Adventure game on my Amiga . The music was the best on MI I still remember it.

Tales of Monkey Island being considered for XBLA
Quote:
Telltale has not yet formally announced any plans to bring Tales of Monkey Island to XBLA, but considering most of its previous episodic series (Sam & Max, Wallace & Grommit) have all made an appearance, design director Dave Grossman revealed it is currently under consideration.

Telltale is also saying that a new Day of the Tentacle game is "feasible" if Monkey Island is a success.

http://www.videogamer.com/news/tellt..._tentacle.html

I hope they keep buying up all of Lucas Arts' adventure franchises. I think a new Grim Fandango would translate well to the engine they use for Sam & Max.

Or even a new point and click Indiana Jones adventure.

They bought Sam and Max... I think they are just licensing Monkey Island.

I hope Monkey Island comes to XBLA... I played the Sam and Max demo on there and it actually looks better than the PC version and plays well.
