Dare to Play the Game

Posted in: Dare to Play the Game, News and Opinions by Michael Durr on December 17th, 2008

Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    The Strongbad games were intended to be episodic in nature, the 5th installment being the last in this first series. That being said, I only played the first one, but I think the price is semi-reasonable considering the amount of content. However, the PC buyers received a substantial discount for subscribing to all five episodes, whereas the Wii users were left paying full price each month. Seriously lame. I would have considered buying all five episodes at a discounted rate on the Wii.

    Ahh episodic like Sam n Max or Penny Arcade. I think Sam n Max comes as a collection for the Wii now. But, that is pretty bad expecting $50 for DLC for 5 episodes. They should have priced them at about 600 points a piece and would have had a lot more followers from what I could surmise. The episodic idea is an interesting one, but I prefer it all bought as a collection, time in and time out.

    Some people cannot afford to purchase the games at 60-80 dollars a game, so they buy them used for the simple fact that they can get it cheaper. Until they reduce the cost of games to something reasonable, people will continue to buy used. They can quit their QQ’ing and suck it up. I don’t see these guys driving around in a Pinto anytime soon as a result of people buying used games!

    Oh and btw… musicians DO bitch about thier stuff being sold as used, or being shared for that matter. *points to Metallica*

    If they put the five SB episodes on a disc and sold it for $30-$35, I’d likely get it. They’re pushing it at $50 for the Wii.
