The latest Strong Bad E-mail(homestarrunner.com) is all about possible Strong Bad video games. In it, he shows 4 possibilities that you can play:
Secret Collect: A red square runs around a maze and collects stuff. Bad graphics are the order of the day.
StrongBadZone: A 3-D vector game! SB's head floats back and forth, spitting...uh, chips. You're a spiky-haired guy with a cybershield. Move your shield to block the chips back at SB, and chip away at his head. Otherwise, "Your Head A Splode!"
Thy Dungeonman: A text-only Dungeons & Dragons type of deal...except the lack of detail is purposely to make fun of you. Two bits says Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's pal Blackwolf the Dragon Master would dig this one.
Rhinofeeder: There's a rhino. There's rhino food. If SB doesn't get said food in said rhino's dish, said rhino turns red, stomps and charges. Snakes, meanwhile, push SB away from his goal.
If you've got Flash...you've got yourself 4 awesome time-wasters here. (Note: they're not on the "Games" menu yet.)
Star wipe, and...we're out. Thrillin' ain't easy.

Any word on easter eggs in these? A "Somebody get this duck away from me" moment in Secret Collect would have me on the floor.
"As far as my lack of professional courtesy and my obvious immature humor in referring to using your head as a pickle jar, well, I reserve my courtesy for those whom I respect. Your lack of personal integrity has given me much grief, and I find that thinking of your hollowed-out head sitting on top of my fridge and providing a safe haven for pickles is a comforting thought." -- the immortal Bill Mattocks
By all means give it a chance. It was fun. It's pretty and the fights are great. Just lower your expectations storyline wise a little and you'll be fine. Yeah, it came out on UMD in Japan so I'll assume it will be out here too.
