Who Needs the Xbox 360?

If you've followed this blog, you may have noted that I've lusted after an Xbox 360. Well, no more. No, I haven't convinced the Mrs. that we should spend $400 on a new system. Instead, I got an even newer Xbox. A portable one even.

Well, honestly, this thing is a piece of junk. It makes Game and Watch look like a next-gen miracle. I found it in a box of Cocoa Krispies. It plays only one game, called Robo Blast. Robo Blast is a bad game. These odd little smudges move across the screen, and the d-pad controls a cursor. Place the cursor over a robot and push the button to pull the trigger. Beep! The robot disappears. Here's a closer look at one of the robots.

The game has four levels. The goal is to prevent the robots from making it across the screen. They speed up a higher levels. Let too many get across the screen, and it's game over. I'll be frank: this game is not fun. It is part of a series. Looks like there are four more "Xboxes" to get from Cocoa Krispies. They are 1) Motorcycle Madness, 2) Mystic Castle, 3) Disco Mania, 4) Space Blaster. Not one seems promising. At least they're portable.

that is rad for sure. Is it also a watch.. or do you just like to put it on your wrist? Also it's pretty big for a cereal box..

I'm jealous

It is not a watch. It is simply a robot destruction simulator designed for wrist transport.

You should not be jealous.

I can't believe you got the mrs to let you do that. I can barely get a new playstation 2 game for a measely 30-40 bucks. You rock!
