A Pathological Inclusion: Indie Royale Halloween Bundle

This is incredibly unfair to the other games in Indie Royale's Halloween Bundle but the reason everyone should buy it is because Pathologic is in there. Ice-pick Lodge's disease-ridden horror story takes place in one of the most bizarre and fascinating environments ever crafted, and the game is either brilliantly and intentionally brutal or beguilingly broken. Probably both. For what is just shy of £3.00…

Four-Play: Telltale’s New Game Teased

Lauri was the first to mail us with news that Telltale are teasing us furiously via the medium of Gametrailers. A short footage stating "Bet you never thought these guys would get together", followed by silhouettes of Him from Penny Arcade, Him from Sam 'n' Max, Him from Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and - unless our eyes deceive us - him from…

Sam & Max: They Stole Max’s Brain Released

Taking a break from our overriding theme of wallowing in the early 00s, lets return to another early motif of the day. Rodents! Because a rodent features prominently in the just-released* trailer for the just-released** third episode in the currently actually-pretty-well-received series of Telltale's Sam & Max. If you haven't already, you can buy the series on the site and play all the current episodes,…

Mustachioed: Sam & Max Ep 2 Trailer

After an excellent first part to the third series of Sam & Max, episode two is now available, with a new trailer to convince you to invest in the series. I gave the first episode a very hefty 82% in the current PC Gamer (in shops now!), coming from someone who has not felt affection for the previous two runs. It's a big step forward,…

Devil’s Haircut: Sam & Max Demo. Also, Hats

The new season of Sam & Max has started with an episode whose title I can't write, else my inner-12 year old takes over and the rest of the post is just me sniggering. To lure you in, there's a playable demo available for the PC and the other PC. If you want to play more, you have to buy the whole season, which gets…

I Want Sam & Max Toys

Because I am a hopeless geek, and even though those Telltale episodes mostly make me want to kick old ladies to death, my affection for the characters circa Hit The Road remains undimmed. So I got all nerdy-excited when I saw this post about Sam & Max figures over at Topless Robot. Only to find all they're just more of those ubiquitous bloody designer vinyl…

RPS Exclusive: Mike Stemmle Interview

A few weeks back we heard the splendid news that LucasArts alumnus Mike Stemmle had joined Telltale. As one half of the team that created the original Sam & Max: Hit The Road, who better to get involved? So we got in touch and spoke to the man, finding out what he's been up to in the meantime, what it's like to return to S&M…

Use Key in Moloch?

Generally speaking RPS has a somewhat tempestuous relationship with Telltale's games. Walker specifically tends to go on a big ol' rant whenever they come up, which probably means it's a good thing he's off having adventures in San Francisco and I'm posting the news that the Sam & Max Season 2 Finale "What's New, Beelzebub?" is now available to play. There's a twelve-or-so Peggles demo…

Mike Stemmle Joins Telltale

Here's some interesting news. Telltale, they behind the recent Sam & Max episodes, have hired Mike Stemmle, one half of the LucasArts double-act who created the original Sam & Max: Hit The Road. (I should stress, I took this photo eight years ago, and he looks nothing like this now. But his office is worth remembering. Click the pic to see the full-size. Oh, and…

Bunny vs Robot

If you somehow managed to wade through all ninety thousand words of my fevered ranting about Telltale's Sam & Max episodes recently, you might have noticed that, despite my other criticisms of the series, I do have a lot of time for Episode 4: Abe Lincoln must die. Apparently it was the best reviewed of the series too, so it's not just me being mad.…
