Sam & Max season 3 poaches pre-order price cut on PSN

Alright, let's be frank here -- I'll take any chance I can get to pimp Telltale Games' Sam & Max games. The justification this time is that some new-fangled PlayStation Network pre-order starts today. As in right now. If ...

Sam & Max season three outed as The Devil's Playhouse

It would appear that Telltale Games is preparing a brand new adventure for Sam & Max with a third season of mindbending puzzles and faintly embarrassing witticisms. It's called Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. A...

Take a survey, get a free Telltale game
by Conrad Zimmerman

Seeking some input on the next Sam & Max season, the fine folks at Telltale Games want to know about what kinds of games you're playing and have set up a survey to ask exactly that. They're not only fine, but they're smart too. They know that this is the internet and we won't do anything, even the most minor of efforts, without some sort of remuneration. 

To that end, they're going to give away one free episode from any Telltale series for people who fill out the survey. That means Sam & Max, Wallace & Gromit, or even the very funny Tales of Monkey Island series. Hot stuff.

Quantities are limited to however many people they decide they need for their sample size, so I would get right on it if I were you. You can check out the survey here.

Sam & Max Seasons 1 and 2 coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade
by Nick Chester

You read that headline right -- Telltale has announced that Sam & Max will be coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade this year. 

Season one and seasons two -- already released for PC and Wii -- will be made available as full-season bundles, called Sam & Max Save the World and Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space respectively. No word on exact release dates or pricing, but Telltale also says that Atari will release Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space at retail in 2009 as well.

The re-branded Sam & Max seasons join Telltale's other planned XBLA release, Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, which is also set to release this year.

Anyone miss out on Sam & Max on the PC or Wii, and looking forward to this?

Destructoid review: Sam & Max Season One photo
Destructoid review: Sam & Max Season One
by Conrad Zimmerman

Games that strictly approach from a comedic angle are rare these days. In a time when interactive entertainment predominately consists of badass protagonists wielding large guns, it's refreshing to see that there is still a place for a dog wearing a business suit and a psychotic bunny wearing his birthday suit to run amok. Of course, they too are wielding large guns.

I've been a fan of Sam & Max since their first foray into gaming, the 1993 LucasArts adventure, Sam & Max Hit the Road. It was delightfully strange and quickly became one of my favorite entries into the genre. Yet, my fear that I had an inadequate computer to handle the new, episodic series from Telltale Games prevented me from purchasing them. Imagine my excitement when the first season was announced for Wii.

Now, the promise of Sam & Max on the TV in my living room has finally come to fruition (forgetting, of course, the mediocre Saturday morning series in the mid-nineties). How does it measure up? Hit the jump for the full review.

PAX 08: Hands on with Sam and Max Season One ... for the Wii, OMG!
by Nick Chester

After its PC debut on Gametap nearly two years ago, the entirety of Sam and Max Season One will be making its way to the Wii this fall. And considering the game has been rumored to be coming to Nintendo’s console for just as long, I’d imagine many fans are breathing sighs of relief.

Developer Telltale Games had a playable and final version of the Wii software on hand at this year’s Penny Arcade Expo, and once I got the Wii remote in my hands, I discovered one thing: it’s definitely Sam and Max Season One. That is to say that not too much has changed, and that's a good thing. This is, after all, a port of their award-winning point-and-click adventure.

All six episodes will be making their way to the Wii in one retail package, with everything intact; beyond some game-supplementing extras like bonus artwork, there may not be much for players who have already experienced the wacky adventures of the crime-solving dog and bunny duo.

But for those looking for the Sam and Max experience on your couch, Sam and Max Season One on the Wii looks like it’ll scratch that itch. More after the jump.

Sam & Max coming to the Wii this August (now with box art!)
by Chad Concelmo

As someone who has the worst PC on the planet (seriously, it barely runs Notepad), I was more than excited about the news that Sam & Max – Season 1 would be coming to the Wii. As everyone was enjoying Sam & Max’s newest adventures on their fancy post-1996 computers, I had to sit alone in a dark room with only the amazing memories of Hit the Road to keep me company.

Well, it looks like I will only have to live in the shadow of my loneliness for a few more months! According to the DreamCatcher Games product page, it looks like Sam & Max – Season 1 will be coming to the Wii in August of this year. In addition to this new release date information, there also seems to be some official box art! Look, it’s Sam and Max!

What do you think? Are you planning on giving the Wii version of this game a try? What do you think of the simple, yet effective box art?
