Sam & Max: Episode 2 anticipation thread

posted by MeaningOfLife on - last edited - Viewed by 829 users

So most of us already beat episode 1 and are pretty satistified with what they have paid for. Our heroic duo stopped the wash-out former celebrity from hypotizing the world to worship him in episode 1. I am hoping that in episode 2 is where there's a main plot to this "season" of Sam & Max, something big and has a continuity all the way to episode 6.

At the same time, each episode has a sub-plot for us to solve and fill as if we have complete the segment of the game, for the time being.

Also, maybe more reference to some of the previous characters from Sam & Max: Hit The Road (like the poster of Harry Moleman at Brady's hide-out) would be good also, give the veterans that the Sam & Max world is all connected.

What do you guys think?

  • About the references to Hit The Road, I'd say I wouldn't like an abuse.
    I mean, a few are ok and make us smile, but I think Telltale proved that a new period has begun for adventure games, so there's no need to be too nostalgic :)
    Anyway! The "main plot linking every episode" is another great idea.
    Honestly, I'd be enthusiastic as well even if each episode had nothing to do with the other, since the quality of their work (speaking about ep.1, obviously) is really high, even more than I imagined.
    But if they have the genius to follow this super-plot, WITHOUT FORCING THINGS, then bring it on, it's even better:D

  • I anticipate Sam & Max 2 along with other new adventure games from Telltale Games.

    Maybe Grim Fandango 2? Full Throttle? Maybe a Lucasarts takeover with a long slow dismantling and soul crushing with decreasing quality and increasing beuracracy?

    YES!

  • YES! YES! + MI 5 or MI 3b :D

    YES!

  • Bad Timing: Episode 1

    eh? eh?

  • No need to be nostalgic?
    *beats you senseless with his large collection of 80's cartoon DVDs*

    I love nostalgia. I think its really great to have in jokes that you will only get if you know what its referencing. Which is probably why I love Family Guy and the Discworld novels.

  • I agree that too much references is not great. Why ? because even if a moleman and a tap-headed guy are funny things, Telltale can't survive with games understable only by a very reduced part of gamers that have played adventures games 13 years ago ;) It would warm our hearts up, but also closing too many doors. Bigfoot stories are past, but it could be great to meet these strange people again, in another context, with only a sentence about past, and a whole bunch for the current episode ^^ Sam&Max's original game was so funny, I acknowledge that I would like to meet again this guy twisting tools, in another context. It could be about all lucasarts adventure games, just like grim fandango was introduced in Curse of Monkey Island (in the restaurant), we could see sometimes statues of tentacles or I don't know, a phone number to have an horoscope by Lady Vaudoo :P but it must be details, not the mainline.

    I'm curious about if we will see lots of new places, or if it will be most of the time new actions in the same background...

    About the BIG plot, it would be great, but it's only the cherry on the top of the cake ^^

    Oh yes, I was thinking of Grim Fandango, it was by episodes since the beginning (different years)... aaaah I want to dream again ^^

    [and sorry for my bad english ^^]

  • I hope we get to see Flint Paper in one of the upcoming episodes.

    And it would be cool to have a launcher for the season when it's finished.

  • I'd like to know what happened to the old car. I loved that thing. And considering it has been shot at with rockets, driven through walls, driven under the sea, had its exhaust filled with matches so it could be flown to the moon and been used to run over all manner of other vehicles, I can only begin to imagine how it was eventually beaten. And it CONSUMES me.

    How about this context?
