Should I pick up Strongbad or Star Parodier?

Ys Books I & II is nowhere to be found, but this week’s WiiWare / Virtual Console update is solid without it. Telltale Games brings Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner. The 1,000 Wii Points ($10) episode has Strong Bad dress up in a Homestar Runner costume as part of the adventure portion. Strong Bad will have a five episode run on WiiWare and PCs. The games are essentially the same except the WiiWare version supports photo sharing where you can e-mail pictures to your friends using Strong Bad’s computer.


Two TurboGrafx-16 imports compliment Strong Bad. Break In, a pool game from the creators of Alien Crush, and Star Parodier, the Paridous of the Star Solider series. In the game you get to control Bomberman and a mega sized PC-Engine. Break In is 700 Wii Points ($7) and Star Parodier is 900 Wii Points ($9). Even with the $1 Virtual Console import tax Star Parodier is still substantially cheaper as a digital download that searching for a copy on eBay.

    Pretty sure you cn take pictures and send them in the PC version aswell.

    I’d get strongbad, it’s a new game and a wiiware title actually worth getting which hasn’t happened in a while.

  • @James – You can and the photos are saved to the My Documents folder. However, in the WiiWare version you get to use Strong Bad’s lappy.

    Cool, but where the hell are the SNES, N64 or at least NES games on the Wii?

    If you want Star Parodier, there is another option: Hudsons forthcoming PSP collection: which looks quite nice.

  • @Treefrog – Well aware of that. Actually, we broke the fact that the Soldier collection existed before Hudson announced it:
