I Should Be Committed
Look very carefully at the above Amazon description of the Kinect Star Wars game. I saw this last year, when I was stalking Xbox Kinect games to add to the gift that I expected to place under the tree, then almost didn’t have under the tree, then almost had too many of under the tree.
So, if you have the amazing powers of perception that all of my readers possess (I’m sorry if you had to use a magnifying glass), you may have noticed that this game is predicted to be released in December. Of 2012.
I almost clicked on the pre-order button last November, 2010, before I realized the calendar year that was involved. Then, I figured it had to be some sort of typo. So, I kept checking back, periodically, to see if it had been corrected. Well, if it is a typo, it’s been on their site for over a year.
I would like to meet the people who pre-order a game 2 YEARS IN ADVANCE! I mean, I guess there isn’t really any sacrifice involved, but still, do you realize the kind of Commitment you are making here?
What if Wonderbutt eats your Kinect console, or your stupid HD T.V. that your husband insisted on buying you for your birthday 2 years ago even though you had never once said you wanted one, in fact declared the opposite, even when he kept saying how great they were every time you walked through Best Buy?
What if you die because you got locked in a port-a-potty for 10 days and nights and you refused to drink the skanky water, and everyone forgets to cancel your credit card, and your poor family gets a Kinect game that you ordered two years in advance in the mail, addressed to you?
What if some Idiot in Batman Underoos traveling in a pink baby walker runs over your foot and severs your nerves so you can’t play any Kinect games for the rest of your life?
O.K. Maybe I need to put this in geek terms…
What if Luke decides to go over to the Dark Side after all because he feels so evil and guilty about all of the wet dreams he had about his own sister? Then that Star Wars game will be just another doorstop, buddy.
Sheesh. Don’t you People have anything better to do than stalk a game that isn’t scheduled to
for at least another-
Wait a second.
Crap. When did I become a geek?
