by

Later this month Telltale Games is launching the first episode of its five-part Back to the Future adventure series. That's not the only temporal twisting going on for the developer, as Telltale today announced that its 2008 episodic adventure series Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People will be making its belated PlayStation 3 debut beginning December 21, with a Mac version to follow later.

Soon fans of all consoles will be able to soothe their insecurities with Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.

The five-part series has players assuming the role of the titular maybe-hero, solving puzzles and interacting with other denizens from the Homestar Runner universe. In addition to Strong Bad standards like checking e-mail and making prank phone calls, the game features a variety of arcade-style minigames.

Telltale really seem to have turned their back on the 360 this past year, haven't they? Yet they still haven't released Sam and Max seasons 1 and 2 on PS3 I notice. Get on that already. Good to see Strongbad coming to PS3 though, heard good things about the Wii version and always meant to try it. Guess now I have no excuse not to.

This reminds me that I haven't visited the home star runner site in a long, long time. Good times! Strong Bad never ceased to make me laugh.

Strong Bads e-mails responses are very funnt on homstarrunner.com Theyre good if youre bored and looking for a chuckle. I already got this on a Steam deal, its worth looking at, its quite funny.

@jeffbordonaro I had no clue they've been working on motion controls that long. It makes it even more shocking to me that they still have controls involved with Move. I'm still baffeled at how Sony could release move with controls and they let MS be different and release Kinect with no controls. I've talked to many people about this and everyone thinks it's awesome that the kinect has no controls.

Worst out of all of the Teltale games in my opinion. Except for maybe bones because I haven't played those. Sam and Max Seasons 1-3 were all pretty good. Wallace Gromit was pretty good. Tales of Monkey Island were OK. It mostly because it felt like a collect-a-thon. Plus the minimalist visuals felt lazy. It was mostly the limited world of Homestar Runner that killed it.

First PC, then Wii, now PS3 and Mac. Sounds good but most PS3 players wont be interested

Although that was immensely entertaining, I don't think I'll be buying it.
