Sam & Max cancelled

I just read on Gamespot.com, Lucas Arts has cancelled the Sam and Max sequel.

A spokesperson of LA said that now is not the right time to release a grafic adventure on PC.

I was so looking forward to that one...

Lucas Arts only makes those crap Star Wars games nowadays! (well some were nice, but enough is enough)

Full Throttle 2 was injury
Sam and Max was the insult.

Not the right time to release ana dventure game? More like, "we have our hands full with crappy movie tie-ins instead of using our resources in creating new and original experiences, like we used to".

Ah, no loss, fortunately a buncha spanish and european developers always have more than enough time to release decent adventure games that Lucascrap is no longer able to produce. :p

Games like Sam & Max got bored very quick I guess... I remember playing Myst, it's was awesome at first but after finishing it, it's totally unplayable coz there's no replay value.

btw took me only 4 days to finish Myst. 50 dollars to play a game for only 4 days.. not worth it.

And I thought Lucasarts was starting to return to their former selves with titles like Gladius... Gladius was one of the best RPGs I played this year. It was Lucasarts and NOT a starwars title. WOW.

sigh

They really needed this. Why would they cancel it, when so many people looked forward to it?
