Do Wii like Sam and Max?
Just wondering what everybody's opinions are on this whole possible porting of the new Sam and Max to the Wii.

Samnmax221 09-20-2006 07:09 PM

I won't buy a Wii, after seeing the Mass Effect trailer I just can't own anything but a 360. I've got a PC anyway so it would be pointless for me.

Ray Jones 09-21-2006 05:40 AM

Clearly, I have a Gameboy.

Skinkie 09-22-2006 08:25 PM

I think the wider market it is available to the better for sales.

Nakah 01-12-2007 10:11 PM

If Sam & Max does come out for the Wii, then it should be 2D like Hit The Road was. I would enjoy pointing the Wii remote at my t.v. clicking on an object or a place to move to like in Sam & Max: Hit the Road.

itchythesamurai 01-13-2007 03:27 AM

I don't see why the 3-D point and click system in Culture Shock and Situation: Comedy couldn't work. Don't think Telltale is suddenly going to shift gears and take the Sam & Max games in a totally different artistic direction.

SyntheticGerbil 01-15-2007 02:42 AM

Seriously, no one has the time, money, or care to do a two dimensional game these days.

If you've got one 3D engine built, it will take much less time to movie blocky characters around prerendered backgrounds than to diligently draw and color individual frames.

I don't think any big 2D game with serious animation not built with vector graphics has come out since maybe 1999 or so.

(Please don't mention Tony Tough. And don't you dare even speak of that Runaway ****. I hate adventure gamers.)

If Sam and Max did come out for the Wii, that would make me seriously consider getting one.

SyntheticGerbil 01-17-2007 12:52 AM

If it came out for the Wii, I wouldn't consider getting it, but I think it would dramatically increases sales over the Virtual Console.

But I bet if Telltale were considering it, they would probably have to wait and see how viable the Virtual Console is.

I'm hoping Castle Crashers will make it on to the Wii also.

itchythesamurai 01-17-2007 06:38 PM

Dude, Castle Crashers is so racist, it'll never make it to Wii. Also, I'm wondering how Sam & Max would do on Steam. Haven't really heard anything about Psychonauts success on it though.

Samnmax221 01-17-2007 06:40 PM

They'd have more success if they debugged the goddamn demo.

Shmargin 01-17-2007 10:14 PM

Man, I checked out that Castle Crashers thing, and peope like that crazy lady on the phone are whats wrong with America.

Jumping to conclusions over something they know nothing about, and trying to make a big deal about something before they educate themselves first.

That stupid caller probably has just needed glasses for the past 15 years and never goes to get her eyes checked. If you cant clearly see people dressed as knights killing white people dressed as peasents, then you have a huge problem with your eyes.

God I hate stupid people.

itchythesamurai 01-17-2007 10:25 PM

I have a Star Wars belt buckle, do I count as a fanboy?

Yes...of course...Oh, and your toasters are going to need computers/software to track targets.

Only if you owned/downloaded/seen the Star Wars Christmas Special.

SyntheticGerbil 01-18-2007 01:21 AM

I've read articles on the Star Wars Christmas special, does that count?

Samnmax221 01-18-2007 03:34 AM

I don't know why but recently there has been a major flood of D-bags in the Star Wars side, that would be fine except they spill over into our neck of the woods, and parts of the Star Wars side you normally wouldn't find their type (Stereotypical locations for morons are Jedi Knight Series boards, and KOTOR boards).

Shmargin 01-18-2007 10:01 AM

They got tired of going back and forth with themselves about which new Star Wars sucked more.

Skinkie 01-18-2007 09:31 PM

Holiday Special leak, someone inform George Lucas!!

Samnmax221 01-18-2007 09:54 PM

Poor Anthony Daniels.

Shmargin 01-18-2007 10:50 PM

Poor Anthony Daniels? He has to be a gazillionare. Hes been in every Star Wars movie. He been on the TV things theyve done for Star Wars, and hes gonna be on the 2 new Star Wars TV series coming out this year and in 08.

The man probably sleeps on a pile of money.

itchythesamurai 01-19-2007 04:17 PM

How much money do you think you could get if you melted down C-3PO? And no, I do not have the guts to ask over on the Star Wars side of LucasForums.

Shmargin 01-20-2007 08:23 PM

I think it would depend on what kind of made up material C3PO is made out of, and holw much its worth in credits, and I'm also not sure of the current exchange rates for credits to dollars.

Unless you mean in real life, which I assume C3PO is made out of plastic painted with gold spray paint. Then I would guess he would be worth about less than $1 worth of plastic, since a few years ago i know plastic sold for around less than a penny for like 15 lbs on the whole sale market.

itchythesamurai 01-20-2007 08:43 PM

So I'd get more bang for my buck if I just put Anthony Daniels on the human trafficking market? Well, let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Samnmax221 01-20-2007 09:12 PM

He is fluent in over 6 million forms of communication.

itchythesamurai 01-20-2007 09:44 PM

Lol, that music video is 4 minutes and 20 seconds long, someone must be trying to make friends with elTee.

Samnmax221 01-20-2007 10:27 PM

itchythesamurai 01-20-2007 10:41 PM

Sorry Eric, I think you were at risk of offending people there before I intervened.

Samnmax221 01-20-2007 10:44 PM

Its so much better now.

itchythesamurai 01-20-2007 10:48 PM

If it's any consolation, I reformatted my hard drive and now I can't find this one picture I had saved of a Welsh Corgi sitting in a chair like a person pretending to use the computer. It was really cute.

SyntheticGerbil 01-20-2007 11:35 PM

How come I don't understand what the hell you two are talking about?

itchythesamurai 01-20-2007 11:38 PM

I think it's a sign of male bonding. Gerbil, let me know if you see that pic with the Corgi. Kthxbai.

SyntheticGerbil 01-21-2007 09:25 AM

What is a hard drive?

Skinkie 01-21-2007 01:43 PM

It's what happens after young boys after they go through puberty.

Skinkie put the reefer down.

Poopdogjr 01-21-2007 10:28 PM

My hard drive seems to be stuck as a floppy disk.

Custom-built for lovin'.

Are we talking circumference here?

SyntheticGerbil 01-22-2007 08:10 PM
