Telltale Teaser Hints at New Crossover Game

A new trailer hit the net today, and it seems to be hinting at a crossover card game. While we don’t know for sure what it is yet, the trailer shows the silhouettes of Tycho from Penny Arcade, Max from Sam & Max, the Heavy from Team Fortress 2, and Strongbad from Homestar Runner. It also shows most of them holding something looks a awful lot like cards. A few people believe that instead of cards, Tycho may be holding a Gameboy and the Heavy may be holding a Sandvich.

You can watch the trailer past the break while we wait to find out more when Telltale reveals the game on September 2nd.

Xbox 360® owning fans of talking anthropomorphic dogs, hyperactive rabbity things and great gaming comedy rejoice! Telltale today announced that Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space will launch on Xbox Live® Arcade this Wednesday. All five critically-acclaimed episodes of the award-winning series’ second season will be bundled together and sell for 1600 Microsoft Points — a great deal for five games at only 320 points each.

This is exactly what this week needed. A little Telltale love. Be sure to check out the game on XBLA. I’ll be doing a review on it shortly.

Gaming for me started in the early years of my childhood. Evolving from NES to Apple IIe to the glory days of the PC. During the glory days Lucas Art’s wasn’t just releasing the next iteration of the Star Wars Franchise. They were releasing these Point N Click adventures and they were great. Now I’d played plenty of Point n Clicks back in my time ranging from King’s Quest up to Full Throttle. The sad thing was for me during this time one particular Point N Click slipped through my grubby mouse clicking fingers. This jewel was constantly advertised and various demos were included in almost all Lucas Art’s Games. This game of course was Sam & Max. I heard the series was going through a rebirth and I got really excited well for a moment and then I saw the PC requirements. Again to my dismay I would be unable to play Sam & Max lucky for me Telltale Games has released it on both the Wii and the Xbox 360. How does the Point and Click hold up to today’s standards? A question that I shall answer.
