you are just a Steam-worshipping zombie........
The complete "Season One" Edition of Sam & Max (all 6 episodes) will
be available retail on August 29.
Price on "www.gogamer.com" will be $24.99 (plus $2.59 dirt-cheap
shipping anywhere in mainland US).
The retail package comes with the following goodies:-
Tons of hilarious Sam & Max Extras
A full-sized printed poster featuring artwork by Sam & Max creator
An all-new Sam & Max Behind the Scenes video. Trailers for all six
episodes and previously unreleased character bios.
Loads of concept artwork, Desktop wallpapers and a MP3 soundtrack
Access to other Sam & Max goodies, such as an online web comic and
comic generator for making your very own comic strips!
As usual, the retail price is a lot better than the prices charged for
Steam-download third-party games (with no extra goodies) by the
money-grubbers at Valve:-
Valve/Steam prices for the Sam & Max Season One Episodes:-
$8.95 per episode
$19.95 per package in groups of 3.
Also the retail system-requirements listed on the Gogamer website are
Pentium 1.5GHz or better
3D Graphics Card with Shader 2.0 or higher
DirectX compatible Sound Card
Notice that there is no mention of the dreaded "Internet Connection
Required", the Steam warning-bell (and death-knell) for single-player
(For comparison: At the present release rate, it will probably be
2010 by the time all 3 HL2 Episodes will finally be available in a
retail collection - with the mandatory Steam umbilical, of course)
