    I'd buy a ScummVM collection any time for the Wii almost any price!

    Scumm FTW :-D

    true, but it's rather close to the other Scumm games.

    [​IMG] Not surprised, but I'm less than excited. I hope fans of this sort of thing enjoy it and get their money's worth (or download's worth), but the Wii-mote is built for so much more. This game is just another example of publishers (LucasArt, right?) cashing in on the popularity of a system. Kind of hard to fuck up a game like this, but it will likely be merely more of what we played 15 years ago. Meh...

    It's not a remake of Sam & Max: Hit The Road.. they're porting the new Sam & Max games (made by Telltale.. not LucasArts).. and I'm very happy with this since the Wii-remote is perfect for this kind of game and this could be hardly be ported to any other console [​IMG]

    Nah, I get that it's not a remake. My point was, though, that we can probably expect basically the same ole / same ole in gameplay and story devices. Like I said, if you're a fan of this sort of thing, more power to you. But, much in the same way I find Phoenix Wright to be a waste of the DS' resources as a system, I strongly anticipate this game to be such for the Wii. Point and click has its place, but it doesn't do much to push the Wii into new gameplay dimensions, such as the system was intended to do. [​IMG]

    Its nice to see a nintendo designer posting here! Intended to do?

    I would hope the wiimote promotes more point and click standards to make the jump to consoles, its still progress and its still down to the interface improvements wii offers over other couch consoles. Too many wii sports or sword fighting games and you risk it becoming as popular and revolutionary as the light gun is today...

    It would be hard to screw this up, so it could be good.

    I fount the new episodes to be very entertaining, I don't care if it doesn't push the system as all I want are fun Wii titles. As long as pointing a wiimote at the screen instead of mouse control is done well I'll buy this.

    People seem to forget that the intention of the Wii was so to have fun titles on it that are simple to play (I'm talking control wise, not difficulty) and not need to have loads of buttons used.

    hurray for Sam and Max, I really really hope this will do well, and other publishers finds a good idea in releasing their OLD games on WiiWare or something (much like a scummvm for wii). Same old controlls as always, just a wiimote needed! hurray again!

    very entertaining? did we play the same games? i only played a few episodes but those "running gags" arent funny and the game is just not hard enough you go through the whole game without even thinking twice about something and i dont want to talk about the game lengt why dont they just bring one long and hard game out instead of multiple short ones
