Sam & Max sale and Episode 5

I just read the new blog posted over at TellTale and for next 3 weeks theres a sale on where you can get the whole season 3 or complete collection of Sam & Max seasons cheap. From reading this and reading forum posts it sounds like their hinting that episode 5 of The Devils Playhouse won't be released until mid-September (ish) during the sale period.

I'm surprised as I thought it was scheduled for August. Rumours going around is that they've done this to help shorten the gap between this season ending and the rumoured start up of the Back to the Future episodes near the end of the year. Some people believe the 1st episode of BTTF will be out by late October around the time the film trilogy comes out on Blu-Ray which i think would be too soon.

I bought the complete collection last time it was on sale for $50, and that seemed like a really good deal then, but I guess they really want people to play these games. I mean, 40 bucks. That's five dollars more than each season was when they first came out.

As for episode 5, I didn't really expect it to come out in August, considering there's no set release date yet. It's usually revealed a couple of weeks beforehand, and there's not a couple of weeks left in August. I can't wait for when they do release it, and I hope they announce the date soon.

Man I wish I had the cash for Season 3. I recently finally finished season 2 a month or so ago and just the other day finally tried out the demo for 301 and I'm looking forward to playing the whole thing.

It's the best Telltale series definitely, better than even Tales of Monkey Island in my opinion (and I loved TMI). Between TMI and The Devil's Playhouse I think Telltale have finally shifted up a gear into full-on LucasArts Adventure production.

The puzzles still aren't quite there yet, but The Devil's Playhouse has been seriously goddamned awesome. Maybe the episode 5 delay is just to make episode 5 as slick as possible.

Just wondering, at the very end of TOMI where it hinted the 3rd season of Sam & Max, do you think there will be some sort of hint to what the next season will be, I'm hoping it has something to do with BTTF.

August 30th, that's the day after my birthday! Cool!
As for the next season hint, Threepwood4life, that's a good theory, and I'm sure we'll find out pretty soon.

does this include a physical release as well? Because I've always wanted physical copies of the seasons (they look nice on my shelf lol) and if they're all going for $40 that would be a good deal.

  • Maniac Mansion (seperate from DOTT)
  • Battle of Britain: Their Finest Hour (Want to sell, PM me)
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • MI1 VGA

Yes, that should include a physical copy when it becomes available, you'll only have to pay for P&P.

Ours will be up shortly. We actually listen to embargoes. Just not ones by that Largo chap, he's a bit shifty.

EDIT: Now up! 20 minutes early, but I'm worried my house is about to get struck by lightning.

Um... sorry this made me laugh lol!

LucasArts don't do full-on adventure production. They do disappointment. 10+ years ago LucasArts did full-on adventure production.

Telltale out-LucasArts LucasArts by a million to one.

I dig what you mean, Snugglecakes, but I believe Tingler capitalized the "A" in "Lucasarts Adventure" because he was referring to the level of quality and creativity that characterized the genre Lucasarts' glory days, not to refer to that company's contemporary standard.

Weirdly enough, it's also the birthday of a friend of mine, and is the day after another friend's. Small world.
