Initial reactions [USE SPOILER TAGS]
Culture Shock debuts on Gametap today so we need to discuss how we felt. Use Spoiler tags and I won't have to gut you. Syntheticgerbil iz so funni.

I feel all kinds of anxious waiting for Telltale to release it, but I'm so relieved to know that this game actually came out. I wonder who all is doing GameTap though, thought most of us weren't...

Metallus 10-17-2006 07:09 PM

It's good. I like it.

Samnmax221 10-17-2006 08:25 PM

Not really a spoiler
I haven't played it yet, but I've figured something out Metallus is a giant smartass. I'm still waiting on my check from the crummy job I quit but I expect to have some cold hard cash pretty soon. I did however manage to pick up "Sam and Max: Special" off of Ebay for $15.

I finished the game (took me a little under 4 hours).

Pros: Max's voice. Nice visuals. GREAT humor. Deep dialogue trees. Lots and lots of little details and easter eggs that you may miss the first go around.

Cons: Sam's voice. Puzzles way too easy and not enough of them.

It's funni to say this, but I don't think I have time to play this game for at least 9 months.

Samnmax221 10-18-2006 01:07 PM

When November 1st rolls around I hope to be playing.

But is it godly?
Not in the sense that there is a god, does it measure up

SyntheticGerbil 10-19-2006 10:28 PM

The game is only four hours playing time, but it would only be fair to finish the other 30 games I own but have never found time to play.

Besides, I still haven't even played Bone.

Samnmax221 11-06-2006 03:30 PM

I'm pleased, although the comedic timing seems off. Hey hey, Telltale had the balls to make fun of scientology.

itchythesamurai 11-06-2006 04:26 PM

Someone deserves an emmy nomination! I think at times the clicking to move was frustrating, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. The jokes were rapid fire enough that it's okay that several fell flat.

SyntheticGerbil 11-06-2006 04:40 PM

They made fun of Scientology? Telltale is the best! But they are going to get sued now.

Samnmax221 11-06-2006 04:47 PM


itchythesamurai 11-06-2006 06:56 PM

A highly publicized lawsuit is just what Telltale needs for that extra boost with the common man!

Samnmax221 11-06-2006 07:03 PM

Boscoe should be redone by Samuel L. Jackson.

itchythesamurai 11-07-2006 01:52 PM

Wouldn't it make more sense if Sam was revoiced by Samuel L. Jackson? Yeah, none of the secondary character voices really impressed me. If they throw Flint Paper in for any future episodes, I hope they get him right.

Mazh 11-08-2006 11:39 AM

I really enjoyed it! I'm not very used to adventure games, so the difficulty level was just perfect for me. Hope they make the coming episodes harder though...

Samnmax221 11-08-2006 03:45 PM

At least two of the upcoming episodes should involve a road trip, at least one should involve aliens.

Sam asks Boscoe for vegetables in the shape of famous naturalists

Boscoe cuts off halfway thrpugh saying Telltale was out to get him

People who wetted their little pants are funni

itchythesamurai 11-08-2006 06:29 PM

What? You expect Telltale to actually make new settings instead of just rehashing the ones they already made?

I bet Sybil will have a new job next episode. Any idea what the overarching storyline is?

jp-30 11-09-2006 03:58 PM

I'm sure someone from Telltale said that the
rats return, so that may be part of the story arc
