Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People

I make no secret that I am a huge fan of Telltale Games, as can be seen in my first post on what a top notch gaming company they are. I urge you to check them out if you haven’t heard of them before or seen their creations.

I just got through playing the final installment in the Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People series – “8-bit is Enough” – and I’ve got to say, they’ve yet to let me down – the game was simply awesome. I won’t give anything away, but as you Homestar Runner fans know, the Brothers Chaps have an affinity for the 8 bit world, both poking fun and reliving the joy that was gaming in the 80s. All that is brought to new light in “8-bit is Enough”, with the 8-bit world bleeding and mixing into the game world of Strong Bad. For a retro geek like me, it was fun, hilarious, and just a great time to play. The puzzles were pretty good, not great, but on par with previous Strong Bad adventures – but the retro feel of the game was the real champion here – cavorting and battling against pixelated baddies was very true to the spirit of Homestar Runner and ripe with in-jokes of our arcade past.

Featuring everyone’s favorite Trogdor, this one was definitely my favorite in the series, with the first episode being a close second. If you’re into adventure games, retrogaming goodness, the Homestar Runner gang, or just having fun, I definitely suggest playing the entire series, it’s a lot of fun at a very reasonable price.
