BREAKING NEWS! Sam's paw to be cursor in Wii Sam & Max 10 Jun, 2008, 00:49 / 4 comments

There's important news, there's really important news, and then there's this. Remember when you were playing through Telltale's Sam & Max games, all the while saying to yourself, "Wow, these games have great characters, a compelling story, wonderful dialog, and fantastic artwork, but they nonetheless totally blow because they're lacking a seemingly inconsequential element from Hit the Road and those Freelance Police screenshots that really pulls the whole package together: Sam's hand as a cursor." From the looks of things, Telltale is correcting their tragic mistake with the upcoming Wii version, still due for an August release. Says Jake:
We're doing the game justice on the wii, though. Widescreen [...] Also, the UI has been tweaked for consoles, allowing you to select dialog options and inventory items (and browse the menu) with the d-pad as well as with face buttons, and there is a new, pretty episode launcher. The Wii version also marks the return of a favorite Sam & Max cursor of yore.
Those of you who've been staying away from Season 1 can now finally get onboard. Don't scare us like that again, Telltale.

    References to Sam's hand being a paw kind of freak me out. I mean, I know he's a dog, but still.

    I'm glad Telltale Games is finally listening to the fans.

    Even though this post is obviously tongue-in-cheek, I think the paw cursor is a welcome change from the boring arrowhead of the PC version. Well done, Telltale.
