I submit that the "Rube Goldberg" Remark is inaccurate because a Rube Goldberg Machine is (as the Wikipedia link itself states) a "deliberately overengineered apparatus".  The actions on the stage were not deliberately engineered to be convoluted - they are merely a result of circumstance, and they're not really a unified "apparatus" either.  Typically, Rube Goldberg machines are initiated and perform the rest of their convoluted actions autonomously.  Strong Bad's actions are distinct in solving individual problems associated with exposing the prop.  If we're going to justify "deliberately overengineered" as being by the game's developers, then the whole of Episode 3 qualifies as a Rube Goldberg machine for playing L:HBO.  (Even so, I still wouldn't consider it to be a unified apparatus.)  To take a different tack on the argument: Rube Goldberg machines can usually be described as "once started, this happens to that which causes this which causes that which causes etc..."  The sequence of events on stage is a series of distinct problems with independent solutions.  -{{User:ReverendTed/sig}} 01:27, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Source of plot!!!

Nintendo Power: Issue 234: "...when Strong Bad's beloved game console- the Videlectrix Fun Machine- melts down when he's playing Limozeen's Hot Babelien Odyssey (a side-scrolling action game...). When Strong Bad discovers he doesn't have the money to get it repaired, he does the only sensible thing: he arranges a 'battle of the bands'..."

Forum Link

How do you fix the link to the Telltale forum? BBG 01:22, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Date

10/13

According to whom? I can't find any info on this from Telltale or H*R.com. The date sounds highly reasonable, but we need a reliable source before we'll add it to the article. Heimstern Läufer 01:48, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
Due to the fact that the date right now is the 22nd, there is only one monday left in october. Some people might say this doesn't prove anything, but nintendo only updates the wii shop channel on mondays, and it's less likely to see two SBCG4AP's in november, so that is the official date. 204.191.74.245 03:00, 23 October 2008 (UTC) P.S. I'm Don't say jorb 101 but I'm not logged in.
Not quite, no. We still can't be sure it won't be delayed until November. Certainly, it seems likely it will be this upcoming Monday, but we won't document that until it comes from a reliable source. Heimstern Läufer 03:10, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

LEAKED Gameplay!

See http://gamespotting.net/gameblog/sbcg4ap-baddest-of-the-bands-leaked-gameplay-footage/

I'm not sure that's really leaked exactly. IGN has a video that's almost identical to it (not quite, though. There are some extra scenes, and it doesn't go all the way through the billy club dialogue.) --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 03:23, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Homsar ?

i watched the trailer and the GF for this episode and Homsar is not in it but it says he is here.

Go to IGN and check the videos there. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:46, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
PS. Those same videos, and the new one on Telltale's site, show I was wrong about SB being a member of Cool Tapes (when I removed a contrary mention of Cool Tapes from the page earlier), but the preview certainly made it look that way. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:48, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Spoilers of Extended Play

I found a video on youtube that showed major spoilers on the Episode, includes clothes, the Limozeen game, and some other gameplay about the band. It's a very spoilery video so be warned. --User:splashUru1 12:08 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Linked pages

Let's add some of the pages we'll need here so we have convenient (red)links. These are the only ones I know of so far:

Note that I have NOT seen any evidence that the Teen Girl Squad is in this one. I didn't even notice a score for them on the scorecard. I'm not finished with the game yet (I only played for like an hour before work), though, so there could be more locations, or other pages that could come in handy. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 19:02, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Possible refrence to episode 1

In episode 1's opening song some of the lyrics are "like a imploding star , like a burning car" maybe a reffrence to "The Best Album Cover Ever".

I dare say that the only possible way it's not a reference is if they planned it in advance and put it into Episode 1 for exactly that reason, which would be kind of a reverse referense or something. It's already on the Homestar Ruiner page for that very reason. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 23:34, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Glitched Pac-Man

The way Strong Bad's game gets messed up reminds me of the way that one level on Pac-Man gets glitched up. Since I am not good at explaining it, here is an image. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:01, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Except for the Fun Machine, the failure is distinctly different in method, as here it's supposed to be a failure of logic components within the device, rather than pure software error.

Nonexistant Homestar Glitch

It seems that if you attempt to "examine" the turntable in Club Technocholate in Extended Play, Homestar will say something without actually being there.

Seconded, how many people need to see that before we put it in? I'm thinking two.
We can make it three, with me, but the other two didn't sign their posts! When it happened to me, I only saw it the first time I examined the turntable. Each subsequent time, I got the "hasn't been used in weeks" remark. -ReverendTed 01:30, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
On a similar vein, you get the same sequence any time you look at the turntable between Homestar winning his audition, and the contest actually starting. However, Homestar is shown next to the bar, where he starts the game, when at this point he's standing next to Pom Pom. --Belthazar 20:06, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Wire to No-Wire

Something just occurred to me. You need the wire hanger to complete a puzzle. The puzzle is during the Battle Royale, but AFAIK, you can only get the wire from the Locker Room, which is inaccessible during the Battle Royale. What happens if you skip taking the wire? (Note that you can't skip getting the bleach, which is obtained in the same place and also mandatory during the Battle Royale - you need to use it earlier than that.) --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:12, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Y'know, I was wondering the same thing. This requires checking, but my theory for now is that it'd automatically give it to you. It does, after all, alter your inventory between the pre-Royale and Royale scenes. --DorianGray 21:16, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
I just tested it. Turns out that the Track remains on the map until you take the hanger, even after everything else disappears. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 03:59, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Zeppelin reference

The teen girl (I forget which one) says "it's always the saaaame!" after she gets killed by "uncommunication breakdown"...somebody who's not me should write that in. 75.69.165.163 18:45, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Baddest of the Articles

I think we should have a Baddest of the Bands Bands article, or something in that vein. You know, like with Countries in Strong Badia the Free. Strongkinghomsarsmith 23:22, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Be bold and have fun! --TheYellowDart(t/c) 04:12, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Cheatday?

I just noticed that I have SBCG4AP Chapter 3, and I just watched cheatday. Well, cheatday has the Two-o Duo (as an easter egg)! So, anyway, should that be a remark, inside reference, etc., or is this just one of those things that don't go in the trivia spot? --Atarifanatic 00:28, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

see here. — Defender1031*Talk 00:30, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
And as I pointed out on that page, here. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 01:29, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

eat bat head

Hay does the fact that king of town eats a bat head reffer to ozzy osborne? Ozzy ate a bat head tooo.

I think that's a pretty clear reference, yes. --DorianGray 02:23, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I bet some of us never heard of the event
And that's why we should definitely mention it on the page, if you can find an appropriate Wikipedia link. --DorianGray 02:50, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Done and did. -ReverendTed 23:07, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Regarding the spelling of the bat's name, "Pazquel" is invariably used by the subtitles. Mind you, they also use "Pom-Pom" and "Two-O Duo". --Belthazar 02:27, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I'd just changed that after I noticed it was spelled Pazquel on the Telltale Walkthrough page for BotB. -ReverendTed 02:32, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Misreading PomStar

Is it worth mentioning that PomStar is easily misread as...something else...in some fonts because of the similarity of rn to m? After I accidentally misread it the first time it seemed like an obvious joke to me. -ReverendTed 23:09, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Unlikely. Welcome to the family wiki. Please say no more. — Defender1031*Talk 23:14, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Manual Pages Glitch

It's been suggested that the Wii version allows you to obtain all of the manual pages by using the Wigglie record repeatedly in Extended Play. I can verify that this glitch is not present on the PC version. Can anyone verify that it does work on the Wii, and whether it will award unobtained manual pages until the player has them all? -ReverendTed 21:20, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Rube Goldberg Remark

I submit that the "Rube Goldberg" Remark is inaccurate because a Rube Goldberg Machine is (as the Wikipedia link itself states) a "deliberately overengineered apparatus". The actions on the stage were not deliberately engineered to be convoluted - they are merely a result of circumstance, and they're not really a unified "apparatus" either. Typically, Rube Goldberg machines are initiated and perform the rest of their convoluted actions autonomously. Strong Bad's actions are distinct in solving individual problems associated with exposing the prop. If we're going to justify "deliberately overengineered" as being by the game's developers, then the whole of Episode 3 qualifies as a Rube Goldberg machine for playing L:HBO. (Even so, I still wouldn't consider it to be a unified apparatus.) To take a different tack on the argument: Rube Goldberg machines can usually be described as "once started, this happens to that which causes this which causes that which causes etc..." The sequence of events on stage is a series of distinct problems with independent solutions. -ReverendTed 01:27, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
