[edit] David Boat?

Could I see some proof that Max is voiced by David Boat in Poker Night 2? I don't want to distrust you, but it also seems very odd that Telltale would change voice actors when William Kasten was doing so well and always available. --Harald B (talk) 09:05, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I've now seen it mentioned at samandmax.co.uk and the Telltale forums. Good enough for me. --Harald B (talk) 22:37, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Style Problems

I changed a few things to make it easier to read. I didn't like the style of some sentences, so I changed them. Hope that's not an issue.

I think I prefer the old style, but fair enough. Generally speaking, long and usual words aren't as bad as elsewhere (what with the main characters using them plenty of times) and the writing style shouldn't be as dry as, say, Wikipedia. (I like to aim for something between Homestar Runner Wiki and TVTropes; closer to the first I suppose.) --Harald B (talk) 09:03, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I just wanted to dispute a sentence in the Young Max section. Currently, it's "He's also selfish and addicted to videogames." Originally I put "He's also selfish which stems from his addiction on videogames." I worded it that way because he didn't seem all that selfish in the comics or cartoon, which they both were always seen playing outside. While playing videogames, however, he doesn't really care what Sam wants to do. I also think the Telltale's versions of the kids are a bit older than the previous versions because they talk about a "prom" which don't happen until junior high/high school. So he was obsessed later in life and that changed his personality. ...does this paragraph make any sense? ^^; Traveler of Game Worlds 20:18, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh, I see what you meant by that. I thought you meant "he's selfish every time he appears because he's addicted to video games," which seemed like a strange jump to make. How about something like "he is addicted to video games as a preteen, which makes him selfish," or "playing video games makes him selfish"? Only maybe worded a bit better.

Would it be desirable or feasible to collect Max's appearances in other media? Because of the two of them, he seems to be the more popular one when it comes to referencing Sam and Max. Probably has something to do with how iconic his head is.

That sounds good to me, but we do have a Sightings page which Max is usually the subject of.Traveler of Game Worlds 07:26, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Differences.

I dunno if the animated series & TellTale games even fit into the same continuity. I'm interested in reading the differences in personality etc. of Max in the cartoon compared to his more violent game/comic counterpart.

I would, but the differences are hard to put a finger on. I'm not sure you can call him less violent in the cartoon; he's certainly no less energetic, and he seems to be enjoying the fights that happen just fine. There is his not using his gun, but that gun is also not seen in Hit the Road and only rarely in the Telltale episodes. So I really wouldn't know what to say about it.

Old Max: So if Max is replaced by a alternate version of himself, who the heck is that old Max from the future in Chariots of the Dogs - Anonymous user 8:17, 1 September 2010 (EST)

I'm not sure. With all this messing around, that future might not even come to pass anymore. You should probably ask Guru in this thread. He seems to have a good handle on it. Harald B 12:36, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Picture

Does anyone know where that picture came from?--108.15.18.247 20:18, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

  • The one in the top-right? The description says "Promotional render/backdrop.", so it's probably taken from a free desktop wallpaper that got made years ago. I'm having no luck finding the original file though. --Harald B (talk) 17:32, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
