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.
