Telltale is doing another one of their mega-sales. The full season of Strong Bad for $5, and the first and second seasons of Sam and Max are $10 each. All three are normally $30.

http://www.telltalegames.com/store/


Sale runs through the 25th, I think.

EDIT: Looks like Steam is price-matching Strong Bad, if you swing that way.

It's kind of frustrating that they run sales so frequently on the PC versions of their games, but there's never been on sale on the XBLA ones...

Not to derail your thread, OP ;)

Man, I really want the disc versions of S1 and S2 for Sam and Max, but they lose the discount when I add them to my cart. Anyone else having the same problem?

Same thing with the SBCGFAP DVD. I suppose it's only on the digital version, even though it's posted on sale for both.

If you download them through the Telltale store, do they have steam support?

Such a good deal. You'd be crazy not to jump on these.

As for Steam integration, don't be so sure that they don't. Sam & Max Season 3 has been showing up on my Steam list as they're released, and I bought through Telltale. I can't verify that this is the case with anything else.

Last time they ran a sale on Strong Bad I got it..at checkout realized I was getting both the digital version and had the option to get the DVD for only the cost of shipping..this might be the same..

yup just looked at my receipt, $14.61 for 'Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People + Collector's DVD'

I ordered both Strong Bad and Sam and Max S2 even though I still haven't finished S&M S1 or Tales of Monkey Island.

I was able to get the free DVDs for Sam and Max season 1 and 2 by ordering the digital-only versions that had the discount listed, then going back to the order pages for the disc-only version and entering the order # I had for the digital versions. It made the disc price $0.00 at that point.

Pretty sure discs are shipping-only if you own the digital versions. Should be 8 bucks.

8 bucks?!?? Best Buy sells the Strong Bad DVD for $9.99...

I'd love to get the Strong Bad season, but I'd like to have the DVD version. If it's really $8 for shipping, that pretty much kills it..

Yeah, if you want the disc, you can get it for the price of shipping if you own the season. I've bought the Sam & Max season one and ToMI disks, and in both cases the shipping was less than $6.

The disks are nice for the bonus features, but I prefer the downloadable versions because they don't have a disk-check.

Why? I'd consider the Strong Bad deal the better one, so I put that first...

Hmm, even though the site says you can get the Strongbad and Sam&Max seasons with DVD for the same price + shipping @ checkout they are charging me full price AND not giving me the "free" shipping for spending $50 or more!

EDIT: when I remove the Strongbad + DVD from the order the price for Sam & Max corrects and ends up with $4.81 shipping for the S&M DVD and my free Monkey Island DVD

Also do keep in mind that even though the Mac version of Season One of Sam & Max isn't available yet, if you buy it now you'll be able to download it as soon as it's dropped.

Hmmm...probably would've bought on Steam had I read further than the OP.
Oh well. Happy to have Strong Bad. And the fact that people complain that it's easy makes me even happier! I tend to not have the patience for most point & click games.

Sorry! Just got home, the OP is updated now.

Out of curiosity, why is it that some people prefer downloading their games through Steam? Isn't it just an extra layer of DRM? And can't you add shortcuts to non-steam games from the steam games list? Not trying to troll, just wondering.

No disc checks and/or no need to get NoDVD cracks to avoid having to have the disc. Don't have to worry about losing the disc. Basically, not having to worry about the disc.

I'm so bored of seeing DRM used as a kneejerk complaint. It's here, it's not onerous, get over it! I swear, if I could kill with my mind every idiot who posts "What's the DRM? If it has DRM, no sale!!!" about EVERYTHING, there'd be a lot less people on the Information Superhighway.

Gonna bite on Strong Bad. (That sounds terrible, doesn't it?)
