Sam & Max Wii Trailer from E3

I think this qualifies as a baffling mystery Sam! To tell you the truth I haven’t heard much out of E3 this year that’s very exciting. My theory is that last year was a real breakthrough with the excitement of the Wii, in fact it seems odd that there was any question just how well Nintendo would do. Which brings us back to E3: As a show E3 was always about the older hardcore guy gamers — so with the popularity of the Wii and titles like Guitar Hero the industry as become much more family oriented in spite of itself.

However as a long time gaming fanboy I rather like the state of the industry right now. Sam and Max is a good example of this — the first time I fell in love with the game was in the CD-ROM era back in the 90s. The game was as much about story as the game play itself, however back in the day sadly titles like this were swept away by Doom and and later the Playstation platform. So it’s nice for me to see Sam and Max re-emerge again on the Wii while poor Duke Nukem is a bit of a joke.
