    "For God's sake, don't start a petition!"

    God forsaken.
    Petition started.
    6800+ signatures.

    Sorry but that's the funniest thing I've seen all day.

    I sympathize for the Sam and Max fans, but at least the programmers are still employed.

    Yeah, I loved the original. This is sad news, but who knows, maybe one day they'll get a new one out.

    This has got to be the stupidest thing in the gaming industry after John Romero.

    I haven't gamed much since the days of Sam & Max, Full Throttle, Monkey Island 3 (I bought 4, but STILL haven't played it), Afterlife, but I've always loved Lucasarts' adventure games. I would definitely have bought Sam & Max 2. Bad move... [​IMG]

    It's pretty unbelievable and a huge stab in the back for LucasArts fans. The game was only 2 months away from going gold. It's pretty crazy.

    At the moment though there have been 20,000 signatures on the petition and we have recieved the following message from Rhonda (PR lady):



    REALLY SUCKS!

    Yeah, in the realm of stupid game decisions, this is right up there with cancelling Ultima Online 2 when they were fairly close to completion.

    This is such bullshit... I've been waiting for this sequel for so long.

    Grr, they probably cancelled it to make Star Wars: Clone Wars 2. [​IMG]

    Well, this is a Lucas company. They don't have the best track record when it comes to petitions and listening to their fans. Although I hope Lucas finally gets it after watching last night's "Simpsons."
