Strong Bad's Game Episode 1 [PC, Wii] - [4]

Oh dear.
I'm going to guess that the reviewer didn't find it particularly funny?
That, and probably not keen on the repetitive nature of all the clicking and what not.

It struck me as a game that would make no sense to anyone who wasn't already into the website. :-k

That's just it. I can look past the bland point and clickery. It's probably just more proof that I'm a retard with a terrible sense of humor, but I'm more than happy to just click on things to hear some stupid voices. 8-[

No doubt the Edge writer was all like "oh, it's beneath me!"

I might actually buy it, sounds interesting. Never bought an Edge before.

That review was fecking awful. He barely said anything worthwhile at all instead meandering for two pages about things that dont really matter. Most of it sounded like he was reviewing the screenshots.

To be fair, the extra heft is mostly some thing about careers in games design and creation, which is written like most other "student opportunities guide" things you get.

Still, good ishoo.
