E-mail notification of new episodes

posted by Thatguy on - last edited - Viewed by 421 users
So I check my inbox every day waiting for that special message from Telltale about the new Sam and Max episode. Today I think, 'The month is nearly over, it *has* to be available'. So I check the site and, sure enough, it's available.

I know I didn't turn off e-mail notification of new episodes on purpose. Also, I can't seem to find a setting in my profile/settings that will enable or disable such a thing. What gives?

  • I recieved my mail. Be sure again is not from your end. I mean, probably marked as a spam or something.
  • I got my mail too... Although I only received it a few hours after the ep was released... But got it anyway! :cool:

    same here.
  • That's why I use the camp + F5 method. I usually get the email 5 or 6 hours after the release. Still beats the PS3 notifier; got that one about 12 hours after.
  • Yeah, same with 301, email arrived like 6 hours after the release.

    So come join us in the F5 frenzy next month around ;).
  • I believe TTG stagger the notifications to even the load on their servers. But if you don't get a mail at all, perhaps it's being spam binned somewhere along the line?
  • Now that I think of it, I did have to resubscribe to the newsletter (during the latter part of ToMI's run) so you might want to check on your subscription settings, though I don't believe that should affect the release notification email. Spam filter's a more likely culprit.
  • I usually get my notification shortly after I installed the new episode. Since we know the release date at least a few days in advance, I check the download links every time I visit this site on that date.

    How about torrenting the episodes, then? Should lower their traffic quite a bit. ;)
  • Havn't received my e-mail notification for 302 yet (I did receive them all for TMI and 301)
  • I tend to find out about new episodes via TTG's twitter, then their blog, then the personal email, and finally the newsletter.

    So there's no excuse not knowing :) But yeah, if your emails are never arriving, you may want to get that fixed, otherwise you miss out on some special offers like the Bundle deal coupon that subscribers were sent a few weeks ago.
