My hatred for gaming shows and unabashed hatred for all things Howie Mandel prevent me from watching Deal or No Deal on TV, but, the video game version has proven to be something entirely different. And it's not because I can skip all of Mandel's "witty" banter with a click of the mouse, but because you can customize your prizes. Which means, my dear friends, that you can have one hell of a time setting yourself up to end up in a pool of your own vomit or left itching and scratching with a new STD or two!
I got to play the game -- which is already out for the PC -- today with some PR pixies and check out this licensing cash grab for myself. Ah, nothing like the smell of hurry-and-make-a-game-on-this-popular-TV-show-before-it-dies smell in the mid-day. Even though I'd love to tell you how much I hated the game and how completely worthless it was, I can't. It was actually kind of fun to play and the fact that, as I mentioned above, you can plug in your prizes is really where the game becomes something viable. Want to make a girl strip down and lick your toes? Well then set it up and get prepared to be cleansed. Want to make your broham chug a bottle of Jose Cuervo then lick the butt of a frog? Now you can, thanks to Deal or No Deal!
Ah, the possibilities for sin and illegal activities are endless. I plan on using the prize: You can ride my pony honey!
