The T-Shirt - Sam with a gun?

Warning: Opinion below...

I can't recall Sam or Max ever carrying a gun. They are adventure crime solvers. They use their brains to fight crimes. Sometimes Max kicks and pounces on his victims, but never a gun. IMO, this is sort of giving the wrong message to people. Especially new people that may never have played the original Sam and Max.

Can we get a T-Shirt with a different design? One without the gun?

    NO GUN?!?!?!

    *GAG!*
    *CHOFF!*
    *SEZIURE*

    NOT IN THE GAME, BUT IN THE COMICS, THEY CARRIED GIANTIC OVER SIZED ONES! EVEN BAZOOKAS! WHEN THE ANIMATED SEIRIES APPEARS ON GOOGLE VIDEO, GO WATCH "THE THING THAT WOULDNT STOP IT."

    Youll see...

    And yes, I posted some episodes on google video...

    Sam and Max are to gigantic guns as ... um ... Batman is to ... his Batmask. Without them they aren't Sam and Max! (Except in the game and cartoon when they don't have them and they're still Sam and Max. Except for that.)

    They are actually using guns in the game. They're using their firearms in the end credits.

    I think, design wise with the game, the duo could carry firearms though unusable for the player in a direct interactive manner. I.e. they can't be selected in any inventory screen but instead used during cutscenes whenever the dynamic duo do have to use them.

    But in my humble opinion; I think it is much more fun to see Max punching the living daylights out of villains instead of shooting holes in them. Firearms don't really have the same comedic long-lasting appeal of usage in contrast to fists (with exception of the cow-that-just-wouldn't-die from Me, Myself and Irene).

    I haven't played S&M:HTR in a veeeery long time, but I seem to recall that the intro cartoon where they rescue that lady had something to do with them crashing their police car through a brick wall and holding out their guns at the mad scientist. Or at least, Sam holding his gun. Or am I just making stuff up?

    Don't any of you guys remember the gag in Hit the Road during the OPENING CREDITS? One of the pictures that flashes by is Sam holding an obscenely large revolver that says HOW'S MY AIM? CALL 1-800-STARWARS.

    Ah, that was great.

    Sam and Max both carry guns. The Comics have multiple instances of such, but for those of you who have played the Lucas Arts games have obviously forgotten the credits, where you shoot both carnie prizes -and- the names of the Lucas Employees who made the game with Sam's oversized revolver and Max's Luger.

    So yes, they've had guns, both in game and comics.

  • Excellent! I think we can all agree now that Sam and Max are card-carrying members of the NRA. :D

    I hope Telltale doesn't go soft on these guys and tone down the wanton violence and destruction. They did say this game would be "grittier", so we can only hope. ;)

  • Yeah. So I know we're all aware that Sam and Max carry guns but I just thought it would be a good idea to add this:
