shame VIva Pinata was ignored, as frankly it stands out as the best game ive played on the 360 amoung all the major release Clones.

Viva Pinata I found to be quite an annoying game. I could barely build a nice garden or make money to buy more things. The first time a hit an animal it lay dying, making it's dying whimpers for a good half hour before I realised I how to get rid of it. I tried everything, pouring water on it, beating it some more. I felt horrible for letting it live like that for so long.

Wow. Sounds terrifyingly realistic.

ROFL wow, I laughed so hard at PurpleRain's post. Sadly, I've never gotten around to playing Viva Pinata, I just don't have the time anymore to play such an involving game like that(or at least, I assume it is) since I'm full time in college =/ However, I'm going to attempt to make room for Spore and throw out a review for it a week or two after its release. That is...if I have the time.

Also...What happened to Guest Reviews? I thought they were going to be weekly. Apparently I was wrong about that >_<

I wept as the poor thing surrended its life away. It just wanted to die but I didn't know how.

Gah, I did enjoy the original, but it seems like the holiday game rush has been sprung on us early this year - there are just too many games being released right now that I want to play to actually be able to play them all. Maybe I'll try borrowing Susan's copy some time :p

Before dousing it with water or beating it with a shovel, I would have tried calling the doctor.

That's still the goal, but we've had a shortage of submissions. Don't worry, we'll get there.

I'd strongly urge you to cover a game that we haven't already reviewed. Not saying we won't ever run two reviews on the same game, but obviously we'd prefer as much variety as possible.

Well... that's always plan C. It was there so long I even had to build stuff around it. I decided to put a garden surrounding it, but when he finally left, I realised I lost my main centerpiece. (Reloads shovel) I can alway make more!

Too Much Cognitive Dissonance...
ARGH,
I guess I'll just go with the nice reviewer and pick it up!
