[News] [Retro] [Wii]

I wish I could be as cool as Strong Bad, but my vocabulary is too extensive to be so cool.  Try to be like him for yourself with the first episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.  Then you get another Virtual Console double feature that I am dubbing "Stars and Bars".

Strong Bad Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner

1 player - Rated T - 1,000 Points - Telltale Games

Charming. Suave. Awesome. These are the words Strong Bad would use to describe himself. In a world goneStrong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People mad, only one man can be trusted to save the day. A man with an attitude. A man called Strong Bad. As the star of the Homestar Runner Web cartoons, Strong Bad has been answering e-mails (in boxing gloves), pranking his friends, pummeling his enemies, and making people with questionable taste snort milk out of their noses for years now. And he’s branched out to star in Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, a monthly five-episode series. In Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner, Strong Bad’s plans to beat the snot out of Homestar backfire, and he ends up with an unwanted houseguest cramping his style. Now he needs to get life back to normal by any means possible. But wait, there’s more: Teen Girl Squad comics, achievements, funny costumes and arcade games. You can even send pictures and messages to Wii Friends using Strong Bad’s computer. So how about it? Can you handle Strong Bad’s style?


Virtual Console

Star Parodier
TurboGrafx16 CD-ROM - 1 player - Rated E - 900 Points - 1992

star-parodier-2intro-starparodierend2 Star Parodier is the hilarious spoof of the classic Hudson shooter Star Soldier. In this parody, there are three playable ships for players to choose from: the ingratiating PAROCEASER, the hot-headed BOMBERMAN, and the ever-so-introverted PC-ENGINE. Players control one of these unique and original ships and set off to blast their way through eight stages on the planet PAROSON. The comical characters take the color and flavor of the Soldier series to the next level and are guaranteed to leave players mesmerized. In addition to the normal game mode, there are also the familiar two-minute and five-minute attack modes, making Star Parodier the complete package that is sure to have players coming back for more.

 

Break In
TurboGrafx-16 - 1-2 Players - 700 Points - 1989
break-inlarge In a bit of a break from the norm of Naxat Soft’s other games, such as the sublime surreal pinball “Crush” series and a host of shoot ‘em ups, Break In is a rather normal game. Unlike the title would suggest, it is in fact not a game where you break into buildings or anything similar - It is actually a snooker game.
