Beavis & Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity

Those lovable screw-ups from MTV's "Beavis and Butt-Head" star in their very own computer game, due out this Christmas. Cool.

If you enjoy the off-beat comedy of MTV's "Beavis and Butt-Head" half as much as the PC Gamer staff (we can't get enough), you're in for a real treat when Viacom's Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity hits store shelves later in the year.

The script for Virtual Stupidity was written by a number of B&B's regular writers, and features voices provided by the show's creator (he does the voices on the TV show!), Mike Judge. Quite simply, this is one of the funniest computer games we've seen in a long while - and it's also a clever adventure game as well. You see, Beavis and Butt-Head want to join Todd's gang so they'll be cool, but before they can do that they'll have to cut class, try and avoid Mr. Buzzcut, and create a little mayhem.

The actual adventure-game portion is surprisingly challenging, but always manages to reflect the comic goodness of the series. And there are even a few mini-games - like a music box where Beavis and Butt-Head will fart a song for you - to give you a break from the brain-work.
