Situation: Comedy, You Thoughts.

Well after some initial trouble this morning I got a hold of Situation Comedy, and I beat it. Time to talk about it.

So what do you guys think the uber plot is? Obviously the ending is the biggest hint, but there's reason to believe the rats play a role too. Also, I don't know if the fact that Peepers wants revenge on Specs/goes to Rushmore was significant or just a throwaway gag.

There's not enough Sam & Max discussion on the Sam & Max forums.

Well....
spoiler:
At first I thought the suggestion that Myra might be hypnotized was a a joke about last episode, she certainly doesn't look as possessed as The Soda Poppers. Have no idea what The Toy Mafia might be but I hope it involves massive Sewer environments and a Air boat, I'm sick of seeing the same old street for large portions of the game. All Three Soda Poppers can be called up on the Myra show so I doubt the Rushmore thing holds any credence.

spoiler:
They fed me a Ketchup Cake!

spoiler:
I'm hoping an upcoming game involves the murder of The Soda Poppers

spoiler:
The mention of the petition almost made me laugh

spoiler:
I like makin' spoiler tags

Also Emetics was referenced in episode 1, so we probably haven't seen the last of it.

Check your spam folder if you don't see it in the inbox. I think they're running into some problems sending to Gmail accounts and get filtered as spam a lot of the time, so it might be happening on other mail providers as well.

Well Hugh Bliss talks on length about Ematics, and Prismatology. All done despite Sam begging him not to.

Heh, sorry. I don't have anything dramatically unique to say. I liked it, and this one seemed somewhat more paced like the comic books than the first one; with what felt like little self-contained subepisodes. The structure might not be everyone's cup of tea, and the puzzles seemed pretty easy this time around, but I still found it very entertaining.

Few more things that kind of bug me.
  • The Dialog system isn't nearly as good as the one in Hit the Road, although Sam doesn't say exactly what the text say it still gives you some idea of what is going to be said, since much of the humor of the comic comes from Sam or Max saying something unexpected this doesn't quite work.
  • Dialog trees aren't deep enough.
  • We could use some Red Herrings to make it harder.

I've been massively disappointed with the whole thing so far. It doesn't feel like the writers really "get" Sam & Max, and neither episode took me more than two hours to beat. I was hoping for challenge and, more importantly, to laugh more. Oh well, maybe it'll pick up as the series continues.

Yeah, give them some time to get into the groove. They've put on the great pants of Sam & Max, they just need the opportunity to adjust them so that they fit just right.

When you go to wipe your butt do you wipe up or do you wipe down, or blot? I'm a wipe down kinda guy myself.

I really don't know, but seeing as you must drop your TP into the toilet afterwards it only makes sense to wipe in a downward sort of angle or something.

So you're saying you don't check the damage afterwards? In the name of good health, I like to know if there's any weird coloration or bleeding going on down there.

Back to the subject, I've been reading the webcomic Telltale's been posting for Culture Shock, and it's gotten me thinking about why the new games have disappointed me so much. The comic feels like Sam & Max- from the concept of a treacherous earwig, to the random appearance of a cockroach, and the appearance of some guy with a hook for a foot that just happens to be one of their many arch-enemies. The games just don't have that feeling of surrealism. Where are the manatee kidnapping pirates, the missing bigfoots (bigfeet?), the giant garbage-eating moon roaches? There's nothing like that in the new games- instead we get lame a collection of TV themed jokes that were tired years ago. Come on, has been child stars should be perfect for Sam and Max. Then there are the characters themselves- they're supposed to be violent enough to skirt the very edge of what can still be considered slapstick. They don't come off that way in the game. The writers seem to be playing it safe, and it's making the games feel really bland.

And the puzzles: I grew up playing adventure games, and these have got to be the easiest I've ever played. Hell, Sierra's edutainment titles were more challenging (Mmmmm... Pepper's red hair was so-- stop! Bad Doomstalk, bad!). It's pathetic when I get a better time for my money value out of your average $10 movie ticket than you do out of an adventure game, episodic or not. Give me something to sink my teeth into, not something I've beaten before I've finished my morning cup of coffee.

All-in-all, the games aren't bad, but they're still a long way off from what they should be. Come on, Telltale, step up to the plate and give us the sequel we've been waiting 13 years for. Not some watered down junk that makes me pine for the TV show.

Downwards?? So, in essence you are saying you wipe it all towards your balls? And also from the rear, so that your finger almost digs "accidently" into your hole? Gross. Gay and gross.

Another important question is, to fold or to rumple?

Scoop from behind to forward. Examine. Drop. Repeat as necessary. How are you supposed to know when to stop wiping without looking?

This would dramatically change pants, and changing pants is not something I think America's up to right now. We're a country at war, if you've forgotten.
