"It may have the same lame jokes as EMI."
Are you talking about the new Sam & Max when you say that? I don't think thats possible at all since nobody who worked on EMI will be working on Sam & Max... since the new Sam & Max title is being made by Infinite Machine (the company made up initially from the original Jedi Knight team), and has nothing to do with LucasArts.
Also who knows what console the new Sam & Max will be for? Their website only says "Next Gen Consoles," so that means whoever agrees to publish their game will chose what system they write it for. That hasn't been announced yet, so lets all hope for PC and Gamecube
