Review: FRACT OSC

Peggle 2's Windy the Fairy DLC is worth the cheap entry fee

Windy the Fairy has crash landed in Peggle 2 as the newest master, and she also happens to be a $2 piece of DLC. It's not just a character pack though, as you'll net 10 new story levels (which can be used in multip...

Windy the Fairy flutters into Peggle 2 with Windy's Master Pack

I've got a serious Peggle addiction, and I don't think it can be cured. Not even with more cowbell. Peggle 2's about to get even more "masterly" with the addition of Windy the Fairy, the latest bit of DLC to hit the Xbox One....
