Sam & Max: Bright Side of the Moon out now

I have just finished downloading Sam & Max: Season One: Episode Six: Bright Side of the Moon and installed on the lappy. Works extremely well in windowed mode despite the old 16MB Radeon M6 card! If there are glitches I will just play it on the desktop. This is the last game in the first season of Telltale's Sam & Max episodic games and I do hope it goes out with a bang (online reviewers seems to think otherwise). Either way it was great to see Telltale finishing up bang on time, quite unlike that of Valve. Going off to play a little bit while waiting for the miserable weather to get better.

If you are a fan of point & click adventure games like Gyakuten Saiban, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango and the old Lucas Arts Sam & Max, you should purchase the game now, especially with the discounted whole season (six episodes) for US$35 (£18). You will get a disc as well (not including shipping). A (more expensive, probably) retail release is planned for August. I hope to have a review summing up the whole season next month, or maybe not.

Ooo... just found out that Eurovision final is on tomorrow evening. Haven't planned any party yet, but I doubt it will be as entertaining as last year's. Still you can't beat Terry Wogan for sarcasm.

And goodbye Tory Blair.

You really should give the new Sam & Max episodes a go then seeing that you love adventure games. They have a demo on their site.
