Model reused in other telltale games?

posted by Sanin92 on - last edited - Viewed by 224 users

I guess it's just me, but I never realised a reused model in any telltale game except for Monkey Island.

In Monkey Island there were like only reused models besides maybe three of them.That is annoying, but still great a game, I'm just wondering how that can be but in the other games got no obvious (or any?) model reuse.

in Sam and Max, I really really can't see any reused model.Except for the really minor ones like the babys in Moai Better Blues.The Soda Poppers had to be reused, it suited them good to be all the same, for a trio.And I don't care about the zombies.But what about the rest?I really didn't see any model reusations besides this minor ones.

now for Wallace and Gromit, here I have to say, I really didn't see anything simmilar on ANY person, except for the dogs.I mean, srsly, telltales didn't reuse any OR they did it that great that you just can't notice it.

So I'm wondering how this too games could have such great/non-existing model-reusation compared to the newer Monkey Island?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

PS. Didn't play the other telltale games so no idea for them.

    The moles in Sam&Max 103? :D

    But you see, they only reused models that nobody would care bout reusing anyway.In MI they really only reuse the same ones, and they got the same amount of time they did for the other ones, its really like their just doing this cause of the wii, gosh.

  • Being the number 1 Telltale critic on here you know that this is coming from someone who isn't stuck up there ass.....

    Who cares? I think that the moles mentioned previously are a prime example of the point I am going to make. They are minor characters just as the random pirates are. Why create brand new models for characters that are going to get 5-10 minutes of screen time & then vanish from the series forever? It would be a waste of both time (Making the new models) & money (making a game isn't cheap). If reused models annoy you to the point in which you make an entire thread complaining about how much they suck, then you obviously don't enjoy very many video games at all.

  • I remember they reused alot of the models in Half-Life. Do I win?

    I didn't enjoy a game as much as I did episode 2 of ToMI for years, I didn't complain that much on the characters, how I complained that the same people made other games where they max. reused the same model for three persons.In Tales its only episode two and we saw the same, how many times now?6,7?

    I mean, one new model via episode can't be that hard, can it?

    and the bears in the casino.
    All mice in the sam & Max Episodes
    Moai heads, the sea chimps the babies, the elves, soda poppers, the 3 Pedros :D
    Three parts of max in 106.

    ^ This.

  • Yeah, but at least most of the main characters have different models. Like LeChuck for example! And the mer-people have pretty different models than the rest of the characters!

    The only thing I see here is nitpicking. And in fact there are new models in episode 2, mainly the merfolk, not to mention islands and assets are models too.

  • Which would you prefer:

    1) Pirates with similar models (but different clothing, facial hair, hats, etc. to make them unique) but several new locations per episode

    or

    2) A huge cast of pirates, all with different models -- but the same reused locations in every episode

    ?

    Just curious. ;)

    Both :D?

    Nah, but it's obvious that everyone would go for 1, me included.
