Will You be Buying Bad Piggies?

Bad Piggies is released today. Sure, some of you are probably saying “What in the heck is ‘Bad Piggies?'” If you are a fan of Angry Birds, you know those pigs in the game? Guess what, they now have their own game. Yup, the Rovio people, the makers of the Angry Pigs series, look like they have finally run out of fun things for the birds to do and are now focusing on the pigs. I guess the pigs aren’t angry, so they really couldn’t call the game “Angry Pigs,” but here comes another puzzle games, this one seeming to focus on “contraption building,” at least so says one review, and it will take most everything in my being not to buy it and then waste too many hours helping the pigs do whatever they do.

I remember when Angry Birds was released and for the longest time I resisted the urge to buy it, finally getting sucked into the game when the space version was released. Then the original Angry Birds was a free app for a week, and again my free time was doomed. Why? Because I’m part OCD, part ADD, part prone to game addiction, part just like playing games, and I can’t just play a game – I have to play it to do the best. I’m that crazy player that just completing the levels isn’t good enough, nope, I have to get “Three Stars” on each level. There were some levels I would pass over, only to come back later and complete the star-ness, but my Angry Birds: Space is filled with only three star perfection, and my Angry Birds was well on its way until I finally had to delete it so that I could get something else done.

It will take a lot for me not to spend the buck to get the game, and for this I plight: Will you be buying Bad Piggies?

That’s it for this plight! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

“The Avengers” is a Movie, “Angry Birds” is Real, “The Voice” is Ending, and Do You Really Have to Tease “Celebrity Apprentice?”

During this episode of our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, the crappy weather must be getting to Stu Gotz as he drops the S-bomb a few times and tries to spread a rumor about the Agent Phil character in “The Avengers,” but Stu didn’t live a real-life version of Angry Birds like I did so I don’t know what he has to be crabby about! We both saw “The Avengers,” and I work to dispel Stu’s rumor while we both seemed to have liked the movie, although Stu does say the Little Gotz’s got a little antsy during the film. “Avenger” talk did lead to the “Super Hero Augmented Reality” app and Stu’s almost getting pissed off enough with Android to jump to the iPhone dark side. I thought he would have hated it because it makes you go to Wal-Mart.

I’m worried “The Amazing Spider-Man” movie is going to suck, we are both looking forward to “Prometheus,” Stu wonders if any of “The Voice” contestants can have a real career, I’m hoping for an Arsenio v Aubrey “Celebrity Apprentice” finale, and Stu introduced me to the term “cracker-crust” pizza.

Thanks for listening!
