What should i spend my free game voucher on?

Hi, like many I preorderd MI and after completing that, I am wondering what to spend my free game voucher on?

I already have the first season of Sam and Max, so am leaning towards Wallace and Gromit, but which episode is the best?

Or do you recommend using it with something else?

Thanks very much.

  • Season One of Sam and Max was great, but Season Two just TOTALLY blew it out of the water in every respect. Puzzles, humor, story, music, simply everything is a gigantic leap forward, and Season Two of Sam and Max remains my favorite title from Telltale and my favorite game overall in the past five years. Even if you've already experienced Season One, I'd say Season Two comes highly recommended.

    Most people (including me) would disagree here.

    Oh, really? Why, exactly?

    Well lets see:
    I liked the catchy songs in Season 1. (war song, JUst You and Me (and Ted E. Bear).
    And there are actually some songs on the Season 2 Soundtrack I don't like at all.
    (T.H.E.M., Jurgens Lair Suite, La Canción de los Mariachis)
    In Season 2 they did not use the great Midtown Cowboys Jingle for Midtown Cowboys.

    ^^just my opinion on the Soundtrack.

  • And they are definitely hiding a cow...

    They are too. I thought I am the only one who hides a cow in his room.

    These are musical numbers though, and I was definitely thinking more in the terms of background music, for one. And Season Two had great musical numbers as well, from the C.OP.S song to the excellent Mariachi musical number.

    And there are actually some songs on the Season 2 Soundtrack I don't like at all.

    Wow. You just listed my three favorite songs on the Season Two soundtrack.

  • @NickClick2 said: It depends. If you want more Sam & Max, go with Ice Station Santa.
    Like W&G better than Strong Bad? Get The Last Resort.
    Like Strong Bad better than W&G? Get 8-Bit is Enough (If you don't mind it being the last episode.)

    Actually in my opinion Strong Bad really is a hit and miss, if you like the humor of the web cartoon then go for it if not then stay away. Unfortunately I am one of the hate it persons, so Strong Bad probably will be left out, I have higher incentive to buy the poker game than the Strong Bad episodes :-(

    I think the buying choice depends really on what kind of setting you like all of the games are excellent (also the Bone ones, they made me buy the book)
    but if you dont like the setting the chances are high you wont like the game either. Telltale is a maste of producing games which resemble perfectly the original cartoon settings, down to the slightes nuances. The best example probably for this is Wallace and grommit where you even can see fake fingerprints on setting 9.

  • I'm Having the same dilemma; which game to get with my free voucher from the pre-order. Iv'e played and enjoyed Sam and Max Hit the Road and the season 1 episode abe lincoln must die, so I was thinking of trying an episode from season2. (I would buy season 1 first so it makes sense for me to not get an episode from season1 that I would buy anyways and have a duplicate.)

    Although, now after reading this thread, maybe I should try stong bad or Wallace....:)

    Thanks for the opinions!

  • Well, I spent mine of Sam and Max season 2 "Chariots of dogs". The only one I had played up until now has been the Abe Lincoln must die freebie, and I have to say in the end, that episode worked VERY well with that one concerning characters connecting and variety of play.

    That particular ep had some incredible writing due to what the whole ep is about. I loved it. Although I really want the rest of the season oh so badly now, as it didn't exactly have a conclusion either.
