Who's new to Sam and Max?

posted by LGH on - last edited - Viewed by 726 users

Most people here have played Hit the Road, read Sam and Max comics or seen the TV show.

For me, the game is SO much filled with nostalgia, recognizing things, recognizing the general style, saying "Oh yeah, that's something Sam would say" or "Oh yeah, that's something Max would do"...

But I'm just a little curious as to how people that have never met Sam and Max before are reacting to the new game. I think they could like the game as well, because most jokes ARE funny by themselves, but still, I would like to hear some reactions.

Are they hooked by now as well? Will they also eagerly wait for the next episode, search through ebay to find the comics, order Hit the Road... ?

  • I've played Hit The Road and totally fell in love with those two furry insane figures.
    Then I found out, that there is a comic book...
    Because I live in Germany it was hard to get.
    But finaly I was able to order it from the US.
    I also heard there was a TV-show - but it was never aired here.
    Does anyone of you have an idea where I can get it?
    Is there a DVD with all episodes, or something?

    That's exactly how I got introduced with Sam and Max: Game, Comic, TV Show. Fortunately the TV show did run here, on a channel called Fox Kids. I only saw two episodes, though.

  • Shouldn't this thread be titled "Have you missed out on S&M all this time?"? ;)

    I'm new to S&M.

  • When I heard this game was so close to release I rushed to find a copy of Hit the Road and finish it in time for Culture shock. I finished it about 3-4 weeks ago, so I think I still count as new. :D :p

  • What do you think of Culture Shock compared to Hit the Road?

  • I wish I had taken better care of my old S&M graphic novel, because now they cost hundreds of dollars, and my copy's all mangled :(

    also on topic: I too am curious as to how newcomers feel about the wacky duo

  • I have about 16 low-res videos from the TV series on my computer. I'll post them on google video some time in the near future. Can't say when because I need to upgrade my broadband connection before I can actually do so. Youtube tends to block people who post them there. If'n you want to find them yourself, I'll give you hint. eMule

  • I was smart enough to buy the video box set as soon as it was available :P

    HA HA

  • but there are 24 episodes in all. Even with the video alot are missing.
    I have about 19 or 20 episodes on my computer. I got most from torrents and two from youtube which I ripped and downloaded

  • Embarassingly enough I must admit I've missed out on S&M (having heard about them only described as a good-old style Lucasarts duo talked about by misty-eyed old-school gamers) until now. But I did get my hands on Hit the Road a few days before Culture Shock came out (knowing I of course had to buy it), played through about half of it (I got stuck [I really suck at puzzle-solving, I got through nine tenths of Grim Fandango with a walkthrough], but half of the game was enough to make me love the two guys) and bought Culture Shock, which I loved.
