I bought the Sam and Max collection together with this because of some Pokernnight offer.
I already played the first couple of eps of Sam and Max S1 and I like the format. There is this back-bone storyline with stand-alone stories in every ep.
But there is still a build-up present and each next ep plays on a larger scale and the season are gradually working up to something.
I played Strong Bad ep 1 and can already say this will be my least fav licence of TellTale. The humour is just a bit too silly and the characters don't do much for me. But I still like it though. Some moments were funny and I like variety of content the incentives for completing 100% and I thought it had some great puzzles.
The story however was fun but nothing really excited happened. Now the ep ends on an ominous tone and I assumed this ep was just a warm-up and things would get more serious and epic in the next ep. But then in the preview of ep 2 I saw that ep 3 would center around a battle of bands.
A 'happy' non-continuating looking episode.
So, is the story heading somewhere? Or is it just a chronicle of adventures in the licence's universe? Could any episode be played individually? No continuation at all in any form?
I'd really want to know. I'll probably keep playing since it'll keep me busy until BttF and I'd like to play the least favourite first so I can save the best(Sam and Max, Tales, Wallace and Gromit) for last.
