First Episode available TOMORROW!

posted by Winckle on - last edited - Viewed by 1.4K users

Yes, i live in France and i'm excited about the worldwilde release of the first episode!
I've never played Sam and Max before but i think it's great!
I've seen some videos of Hit The Road and the humour is great.
(Why not sold or offer Hit The Road when buying the first season or in a bonus with the CD? It will be great because i can't find it anywhere)
At what time the game is supposed to be out tomorrow (GMT hour)?
Thanks for the answer.

  • Cmon Emily. Stay up late with Jake, get hammered(Aussie slang for drunk) then post the game and let us celebrate with you! It's the perfect excuse for a party! :)

  • I cant believe they are waiting till early PST to release - it basically means that the rest of the world has to wait 'very' long. Obviously the poor Australians are waiting an entire day more but even here in the UK it means that we get it almost in the evening?!

    I know a few hours is a few hours but how many years wait is this for a Sam & Max game for those of us that loved the original? I was sure Id be able to download it tomorrow afternoon at least and now we hear this :/ I sure hope it will be possible to download future episodes at an earlier time because PST may be the local time there but this is a global release and so perhaps some adjustment may be needed for the rest of us to get it at a reasonable time during the day? EST may be a better time period to base it around - five hour difference between that and GMT instead of the eight for PST...

    It's being simultaneously released around the world. How on earth does that mean some people have to wait longer?

    If there were staggered releases over the 24 hours of Nov 1 THEN it would be (ever so slightly) unfair that some people were waiting longer than others!

  • I am not sure if your question was actually serious and you seem to have missed a very simple point... or if it was some sort of strange joke.

    How do I have to wait longer? Well lets see.. I get my version to download after 6pm. If you're sitting in California, you get yours in the morning on that same day. Can you see how I have waited and you haven't?

    Ill explain in more detail then. Tomorrow morning Im going to wake up all excited to play the game but Im not going to get it until the evening. Another guy who did the exact same thing sitting in Western USA is going to wake up, fire up his PC and foom, its rabbity thingy time!

    Its not really the biggest thing... it was a request to simply open up downloads just a 'few' hours earlier so people like me in the various countries across the globe all the way to Australia dont have to 'wait' longer as you can clearly see, Australia ends up a 'day' after due to the time difference. Most of Europe ends up in the afternoon/evening.

    Im not sure why you would suddenly start getting excited over a simple request to open downloads a little earlier. Why all this agitation? Is this request for all these people that happen to be further east in the globe annoying? Sincere apologies for wanting to play the game early on the day like the people in the US - clearly it was a request too far for certain posters to stomach :P Still last I checked the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Since it does rise in the east, a time zone more central would be more beneficial for everyone like say - GMT? :)

  • Can I preorder even after tonight for the $35?

    Reason being I'm struggling to get Windows installed on my new Mac Pro.. stupid issue with the 23 apple cinema display.

    I haven't preordered yet but I would like to be able to pay the $35 and get all the games rather than buy individually. But will that offer end tonight?

  • I'm in UK, Is it gonna be release on the midnight of 1NOV?

    We did that last night. :D

    Well, except for the posting the game part.

  • Apparantly not Pinaldo from someone elses quote - its PST which makes it after 6pm our time if they do it at 10am PST. Hence my posts above and requests that they choose a more suitable timezone to open up their downloads on the date since their local one is one of the most 'western' time zones on the globe and most of us are east all the way to the other side of the sphere ;)

    I do realise its a US West Coast developer but it is a global audience after all so...

  • Hey, consider this: if it comes out at 6pm your time and 10am my time, you're probably just getting off work and I'm just going to work (or already there). Who has to wait longer?

    Good thing I'm a student :)

  • If it's released 10am PST Nov 1, those of us on east coast of Aus will have it available around 5am Nov 2.

    No biggie, I've been waitin just as long if not longer (ie was a fan since back in 93 when Hit the Road... hit), so another day, whilst a bit irritating, won't kill me. 15.5 hours remaining if the above's correct ;-)
