You're right. It does look good. Should be awesome with the glasses.

Cool... I'm gonna wait a while though. See what the community says about the game, and maybe wait for an Xbox port... I got Sam and Max on Xbox the other day and I think it plays better that way.

I bought Sam & Max Season 2 +DVD and preordered Monkey Island Season 1 +DVD yesterday. Came out to $68 shipped.

Not bad.

Though I think I'll play the original before starting this one, just so I have some background on the game world.

Nope.

The first ones were released long before I was playing PC games, so I missed them entirely.

I avoided playing them on SCUMM later on because I wanted to save them for a few years down the line when there were no adventure games left.

I never expected TellTale to revive adventure games, let alone bring back Monkey Island.

you've missed a mountain of GOLD! my advice: Never touch Tales until you finish MI:SE, MI2, MI3 and MI4.

Yeah I'll probably wait for Monkey Island SE, but I'm not sure if I'd rather play with the original graphics or the new graphics.

I'm a sucker for classic 256 color blocky pixel art.

I read that the voice over is disabled when you switch to the old graphics.
I was sorta looking forward playing with old graphics and VO... hopefully there is some options concerning that..
