Yes, Lise, I think they mean the Sam & Max release date this time (but I promise nothing).
World of Goo is supposed to be neat.
Why would you ever buy the Genesis edition of SFII if you had the option of getting a different one?
Originally posted by J. KyleAnybody have an opinion on which (Wii or PC) I should get Sam and Max/Strongbad?
I haven't tried the PC version, but the Wii version works fine. The Wii version is more expensive, though (you can buy a subscription on the PC that will let you get all of the chapters of the Strong Bad game - can't do that on the Wii) and your PC's hard drive is hopefully much larger than the Wii's storage space.

I get the S&M and Strong Bad games for PC as a reviewer, so I've never played the Wii versions. However, I can tell you that Sam and Max is clearly built for PC and Strong Bad is clearly built for Wii.
That's not to say that you won't enjoy either version of both games, but Sam and Max is more detail oriented and I think works better in the confined space of a computer monitor and mouse. Strong Bad is a lot more forgiving and was clearly designed with a Wiimote in mind.
As far as a monthly fee for MUO, unfortunately I'd expect one. Final Fantasy had one, and Cryptic (studio behind this) had a fee for CoH and CoV. Oh, and Microsoft isn't adverse to making a few extra bucks here and there....
