Sam & Max items make their way into Team Fortress 2
Valve’s revealed that some Sam & Max items are being added to Team Fortress 2.
Only catch is, you have to purchase the latest episode of the dog and rabbit adventure through Steam to get ‘em.
Here’s the blurb from the official TF2 site:
“For one week only, you’ll get special TF2 treats if you buy the latest Sam & Max episode, The Penal Zone, via Steam. These are Max’s Severed Head (“It’s got us thinking about all the other game characters we could be wearing around as clothes”), Max’s Pistol and Sam’s Revolver”.
- Max’s Severed Head: It’s not often you’re given the gift of a beloved character’s decapitated head by the very studio responsible for that character. Still, we’re not complaining. It’s soft, it wicks away moisture in the heat of battle, it highlights our eyes. It’s got us thinking about all the other game characters we could be wearing around as clothes.
- Max’s Pistol: Who wouldn’t want to squeeze off a couple rounds with the murder weapon of choice of a sociopathic cartoon rabbit? Probably quite a lot of people, when you get right down to it. Luckily, those people are all well-adjusted contributors to society with no police records, spotless credit ratings and few unresolvable moral failings. They also probably have no interest in playing TF2, so that means more murder-rabbit gun shooting for the rest of us.
- Sam’s Revolver: This might look like an ordinary revolver, until you realize that it helps a talking dog solve crimes. How many crimes has YOUR dog solved lately? And let’s face it, his revolver kind of sucks too. Man, we want to talk about this gun more, but we can’t get over how much your dog sucks.
Sam & Max Season 3: Episode One – The Penal Zone hit Mac, PC and PSN this week.
