P.B. Can Kiss My Winterbottom

No post since January? Yikes. The moral of the story here is that if you want your gaming time to go from 60 to 0 in .08 seconds, get knocked up. But it's not all bad, ICandee Jr is much more fun that games...most of the time. ;) And since I can't spend all my time twiddling my thumbs until WCG Ultimate Gamer season 2 hits SyFy I decided that it was time to dust off my controller and get to spending those MS points. (Ah, thank you US government for my tax return turned MS points card!)

The first thing I got with my points was Peggle Nights. I've played this game on the Nintendo DS, I've played Peggle on the Xbox Live Arcade and finally got my grubby little controller on Nights. Totally worth it.

The next thing I was interested in trying was The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. I love interesting games such as this and since I can't play online much anymore, the arcade has been my sanctuary when I can play. So into the download queue it went, after trying the demo of course.

I must be way off my game (pun intended) as I ended up dying during the jumping tutorial (the jumping tutorial y'all) and once conquering the tutorial, made it through about 2 or 3 puzzles of the first part of the first section when I finally uttered those magic words "F--- You" and turned the game off. Now anyone that knows me or my style of gaming knows that when I start cursing, controllers start flying (metaphorically speaking). Luckily, ICandee Jr was taking a nap and I kept my cussing to the "under my breath" variety.

That's not to say that this game is not worth playing. On the contrary, this game is a must buy and I will be more than happy to bend over and take it when it decides to kick me square in the butt once again, which will probably happen about 5 minutes into my next attempt. So let go of those points and just play it already. Sure God of War III is finally getting released from its box come midnight tonight but come on, would you rather play a fun albeit frustratingly quirky game or see ancient boobs?

Wait, don't answer that.
