Frogger xboxlive arcade review

The controls at my local arcade where mucked up, or maybe i really was crap, but it still didn't stop me donating large amounts of cash to the frogger cause. Now it's all yours for 400 Microsoft points (£3.40 €4.65 USD$5). Eurogamer and gamespot have dusted off their happy memories too and reviewed the latest addition to xboxlive arcade.

lovely and retro... Still too expensive. One can find roms or frogger variations for free. Just like pr0n.

The Elderly said...

Jingle...............

gnome said...

:)

Gamer C. said...

Agrees with Gnome.

The Elderly said...

you see wearing this jingly carnival hat, people don't take me seriously anymore... i knew it would happen.......

maybe i should write to them get a free download, i must have left over 50euro in one of their arcade machines......

gnome said...

Wow... lots of money. Hope at least you enjoyed yourself. At least you are enjoying the hat...

The Elderly said...

i lost one of the bells though, and it's very hot to wear in this weather,

ammm i checked the terms and conditions on the retro site and it said nothing about having to wear a hat, or indeed about the pain and deriscion I've experienced...... are you sure i must wear it?

gnome said...

Must is too strong a wors... I'd use "ought to" instead. It's like an unwritten law.. An etiquette thing.

The Elderly said...

you mean i'd be unmannerly were i not to wear it........

it's itchin me...... and i think im developing a rash..... but if i oughta, then i sorta oughta.....

gnome said...

No one says you can't use a creme or apply a lotion of some sorts...

The Elderly said...

your right, im just being negative... though my hair is coming out in clumps now..... calomille lotion should do it, or you wouldn't have a recommendation?

gnome said...

Camomile sounds fine.. i add any random herb though. Just to make sure.

In clumps?

(gnome consults his little red book)

Hmmm...

The Elderly said...

(tries to peer over Gnomes shoulder... but he can't see whats written on the tiny vellum pages.....)

wherd ya get the book, must be very valuable......why is it so small, why is the cover red, anything for baldness....... , why does it have property of the fairie library........

gnome said...

Actually it isn't very helpful. Not now at least...

It is the

"Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse Tung", First edition in English, Peking 1966

w00t!

The Elderly said...

wow....... can i touch it?

gnome said...

Have you washed your hands?

The Elderly said...

(runs off to the toilet, washes his hands runs back......runs back to the toilet dries his hands...... runs back)

yep

gnome said...

Are they dry?

The Elderly said...

uh huh! look (holds up hands for gnome to inspect.....)

gnome said...

Ok... you may touch it now...

Please dont drool on it though... It's quite rare y' know.. only a million of these were printed...

The Elderly said...

ah yes but a population of close(?)to a billion makes it a rare item indeed....

(wipes drool string away from his chin)

okay now?

(holds chin up for inspection.)

gnome said...

Yes. Nice and drool-less.

On the other hand, I do believe that most Chinese don't easily read English texts...

Anyway, go on, touch it.

The Elderly said...

(gently places the index finger of his right hand on the red piece of World history........looks at gnome)

Mao?

gnome said...

??

Uhm...yes?

The Elderly said...

wow... this is what multiplayer on a nintendo DS must feel like......

gnome said...

I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with Mao.. right?

The Elderly said...

well not really but understanding the complexity of such a diminutive publication by comparing it to today's populist cultural phenomenons could help lay the building blocks in understanding the maoist mentality....... and better help us assimilate his teachings....

(cough!.......)

gnome said...

You maysit now.. The commitee has fully appreciated your pure vison.

Now, it's time for a bit of the International anthem.

The Elderly said...

elderly joins his hands and bows, sits obediently and waits..... !

gnome said...

(the International is heard on the background)

Smile Comrades!

The Elderly said...

the congretaion smiles

gnome said...

(Mayakofski didn't smile)

The Elderly said...

well he wouldn't would he, always with his head buried in books, you'd think he'd listen to his mama once in a while but oh no....

i suppose re-incarnation and tickling are not on the cards
