TELLTALE try to buy the unfinished Sam&Max from Lucasarts again!!!

posted by tester8 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.1K users

Hi!

Having just read the history of the Lucasarts S&M sequel (again) and the fact that it was 2/3 or EVEN 3/4 finished, why dont you (telltale) try to negotiate buying the source again?

1) come on, this was almost finished! What a waste, sitting all those years on some lonely server at LEC. Plus, it's possibly cheaper than making a new game?

2) You guys made tons of money since then. (I heard back to the future sells really well)

3) if you support the cause, please reply!!!!!!!

    Dude, it's a Duke Nukem game. Anyone who's ever played or knows anything at all about Duke Nukem 3D would expect DNF to be off-color and objectifying toward women. It is what it is. Whether someone likes it or not isn't the point. The point is, it's in keeping with the franchise. So, if people don't like it, they just ought not to buy it.

    One might as well have complained about Leisure Suit Larry for the same reason, for all the good it would have done.

    People have more reasons to dislike DNF than to have need to complain about things like that.

Im sorry but its just the truth that must be realized. I know it is hard sometimes to truly believe something is gone but you must. You cannot live in denial this long. You have to accept that it will not happen. Move on with your life

    I have not been at it for eight years. More like, four years, actually.

    And why do you always insist that it is the truth when there is a chance, although small, that the outcome could be changed?

    Remember, there is a campaign to bring back Mega Man Legends 3 that Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune openly supports, so who knows? If that campaign takes off, there's no telling what would happen with Sam and Max: Freelance Police!

    So seriously... please think about that.

    2.IT WAS NOT CANCELED FOR THAT LONG, IT WAS CANCELED IN 2004
    3.something gone, IT IS VIDEO GAME, NOT A RELATIVE
    4.we are living in denial because we were so excited, it was going to be the first 3D sam and max game

    Unless you have a million dollars to finance the development of the game with no guarantee on your investment, it's not going to happen. The game is severely outdated and would involve way too many licensing issues.

    But apparently you live in a magical world where a programmer simply presses a button to make a game magically re-create itself from the ground up, and where there are no intellectual property laws.

    Telltale has the rights to make Sam and Max games. There is no incentive whatsoever for them to spend a giant pile of money to buy the rights to Freelance Police back from Lucasarts, and that's assuming Lucasarts would ever sell them (they won't). They can just make a new game any time they feel like it, without paying Lucasarts a cent.

    And guess what? Even if they did, by some inexplicably twisted abortion of logic, decide to buy the rights to Freelance Police, your precious Bill Farmer and Nick Jameson would not reprise their roles.

    You are delusional and have mental problems. Are you still stalking everyone that has ever worked at Lucasarts or Telltale?

  • You know...the last part you could have left out.

  • @Icedhope said: You know...the last part you could have left out.

    The part about him stalking everyone? Because that's actually true.

    He even dug so deep once that he was pestering me on Facebook and Youtube, as though I had any power to do anything about it, or ever cared in the first place.

    Plus, I think he has me blocked on here anyway.

    How does that work?

    Okay, I have personally had it up to here with your trolling, SF. And I thought the "killjoy" thread on here was bad enough!

  • Okay since none of you can get along...I'm locking this thread.

  • Okay, ShodanFreeman and lattsam, please settle down.
    To quote a cartoon: I don't care who started it, don't make me end you! (evil laughter)

    Wait... that's actually from a very disturbing comic book. Nevermind.
    Still, if you can't say anything nice about someone, don't say anything at all. Or take it to private. Thanks!
