You Have To Burn The Rope

You Have To Burn The Rope is an awesome Flash game that you should go and play right now!

Not only does it have a very cool song (just like Portal) but it also completely conveys the objective of the game in the title. I like games that do that. Destroy All Humans! is another great example of a game with a title that says it all. What do you have to do in that game? You destroy all humans. And what do you do in "You Have To Burn The Rope"? Well... I'll let you work it out from the title :-)

In other exciting news Sam and Max is coming to the Wii. Yay!

Now I only hope that they include some sort of hint system for the Wii version as some of the puzzles can be a bit obtuse. When you're playing on a PC it's easy to ALT-TAB to GameFAQs and get help. This isn't as easy when you're sitting on your couch in front of the TV.

So Telltale Games, please test this baby with some regular Wii players to make sure they don't hit a shelf moment and stop playing. Check out Zack and Wiki or Professor Layton for some examples of hint systems that work.
