Well, I've got a shiny retail box set for Sam and Max sitting on the couch next to me. I had always intended to get the episodes and download them, but even as cheap as they are I'm on a college student's budget. Well, I had seriously forgotten about them, despite remembering every few month but being broke at the time. I just happened to have a little extra cash and wandered by the box at Walmart. Now I'm not sure if I should open it or return it.
I've got several things stacked against me according to various posts on this forum.
1. I only have widescreen monitors
2. My desktop runs vista, which I've been reading a variety of issues with.
3. My laptop is a Fujitsu P1510D tablet PC. No CD drive, and I'm not about to lug around an external one just to play this game. Again, widescreen, and a strange resolution of 1024x600.
4. SecuROM... nuff said.
So my options are basically to either take a metaphorical piss all over the DMCA just to run software I paid for on my laptop (assuming even then that it will even run), return it in favor of getting the downloadable versions that still might not work, buy a new monitor for my desktop (yeah right), or angrily do without this game.
I'm at a bit of a loss here, and apparently out either my time or my money... helluva situation for a fan of the comics, old game, and even cartoon series.
So what should I do here?
