2021/4/13: Playstation 3: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People (Guest Review)

Check out my latest guest review for this series of short downloadable titles. I've never even heard of this show, but sounds pretty funny! Thanks to DaHeckIzDat for contributing this.

DaHeckIzDat - would this be a good review to add the clause "bump up the review by a letter if you like the show"?

Comments encouraged as always.

I think so, yeah. Someone who didn't like the show wouldn't get much from it, but a fan (like me) can see it as five extra long Homestar Runner episodes!

I think I played this on Newgrounds 20 years ago.

Odd timing, are you guys gonna add another disclaimer (this game is no longer available for sale/can only be found here instead) since the only place to buy them on console will go absolete? Great that it's back on PC, but digital age and the struggles of some console players here, you know.

It's a bummer that the Homestar Runner RPG for the 2600 was never finished.

That and Man Goes Down were the two biggest disappointments for me when I started following the Atari 2600 homebrew scene. MGD is so fun even in its incomplete state, while the Homestar Runner RPG was so ambitious and timely. Funny thing is, the latter was abandoned because of technical infeasibility, but I'd imagine it's quite doable with modern tools.

Sony took back their statement. The PS3 and Vita online stores are staying up.

When I first played this game in its Wii Episodic releases, I had no clue what Homestar Runner was; didn't get a lot of the in-jokes then (still find a few to be obscure), but found it enjoyable (though Episode 3 and 4 were the most tedious for me).

Amusingly, a couple years ago Sony was going to cut the Vita off both in production and the online store, then kept both going (for production a short time later) due to a sharp spike in Vita sales (from people getting the system before it was gone).

Money talks...

Penult RPG does not use ARM, just regular bankswitching and a Superchip(128 bytes of extra RAM).
