I was thinking about this just recently. Why was the new Sam and Max cancelled? It looked great!

06-03-2006, 08:57 PM
It hasn't been

What, season one isn't coming this fall?! Dammit, now I have some suicide pacts to follow through with... (http://www.telltalegames.com/samandmax)

Check TellTale it has not been cancelled

06-03-2006, 10:10 PM
No no no no no...I meant the game they were gonna release!

06-03-2006, 10:11 PM
Oh wow...so...it's not Lucasarts doing it?

06-03-2006, 10:13 PM
Guys...this is the most amazing thing I've seen in a while...I was talking about the one that Lucasarts was going to produce a while back that was cancelled...this, however, is a very unique idea, but this means you must sign up w/Gametap to play the episodes...

06-03-2006, 10:30 PM
check your facts

06-04-2006, 10:30 AM
No...now I know what you guys are talking about...I was truthfully thinking of the one Lucasarts was gonna make.

06-04-2006, 11:26 AM
So I'm sorry guys for confusing everyone...I'll be sure to specify next time!

a) wow... dont triple post. or double post for that matter.
b) we all knew you meant the lucasarts sam and max 2... we were just messing with you.
c) no you don't have to sign up with gametap to get the games; you will be able to get them from telltale's site.
d) where have you been that you've been "out of the loop" or news

06-04-2006, 02:35 PM
I believe I have been involved with more important things...like Star Wars and Grim Fandango, so forgive me all knowing Scummbuddy

You'de better hope Itchy didn't really kill himself, I don't know where he lives and therefore cannot going looting

You are dumb because your avatar made you dumb.

06-05-2006, 05:02 PM

Your parents made a mistake.

They mixed glass with plastic.

06-06-2006, 03:23 PM
Wow...I can't really understand why you're getting at me for making a mistake...

Hey hey! Who knows what dark and sinister reasons LucasArts "really" had for cancelling Sam & Max Freelance Police, but what it seems to boil down to is that someone somewhere in the realm of their sales, marketing, oversees projections, or Vice Presidentery departments decided that they wouldn't be able to make as much money as they thought from a point and click adventure game, and pulled the plug.

Telltale's upcoming Sam & Max episodic games, on the other hand, are decidedly uncancelled, and are in fact looking totally awesome (something I can attest to because when I turn around in my chair at work, I can see people working on the game directly behind me, and it looks really great).

PS: don't mind the "gentle ribbing" provided by the forum regulars, as they're all really a bunch of loveable *******s rogues. Don't let them get your goat. In fact don't let them touch your goat at all, because they all have extremely dirt-caked gropey hands which never stay where they're told.

Thank you Jake for actually answering and expanding on my original question...unlike the others...

06-08-2006, 07:20 PM
(Also, don't know if this was cleared up or not, but you don't need GameTap to play the upcoming Sam & Max games - they'll be for sale from Telltale's site as well as GameTap)

I never groped a goat, the oppisite however...

06-14-2006, 01:41 PM
I think your signature fits you Skinkie...you really don't make sense in my mind...but whatever...

Perverted goats are one of the biggest sociological problems we're facing today, not to mention super aids

Is that Marvel's next movie? Super AIDS.

Do you know how hard it is to find a picture of Courtney Love when she's fully clothed and that I can hotlink to directly?!

You poor, poor man. You have suffered enough to earn my sympathy, kudos. *cringes at the thought of Jmac's image searching*
