F**K! Peggle 2 will miss Xbox One launch

People think I'm kidding around when I talk about how excited I am over PopCap's Peggle 2. In fact, recent discussions on this topic have had me defending myself. It's not a crack on Xbox One's launch lineup -- I'm a huge Peggle fan!

That reminds me of the time I was in Tokyo for the PS3 launch. Sony's HQ had a show floor where all of the launch games were on display. I immediately ran past all of the others, directly to Hot Shots Golf. My pal Cheapy D, of CheapAssGamer, made fun of me for this being my top priority. 

I'm guess I'm a weirdo! 

So I'm really, truly bummed that Peggle 2 is not an Xbox One launch game. GamesBeat learned that the puzzle title was intended for launch window, but not necessarily launch day. PopCap's Garth Chouteau told GamesBeat that we can expect to see its launch a few weeks later in December. 

Aarrrgh! I don't know what the deal is. I played it last week and it was perfect!

Peggle 2's Jimmy Lightning is less exciting than the first DLC

Peggle 2 is one of those games that's good to just pick up and play every so often, and whenever a new character drops, I get the itch to play again. This time the newcomer isn't an original character like Windy the Fai...more

Peggle 2 adds Jimmy the gopher, dubstep

Classic Peggle Master Jimmy Lightning makes a return to zany peg-clearing action in Peggle 2 today, but he's doing so with a new style about him. Since we last saw Jimmy, he got really into dubstep. I'm not kidding...more

Peggle 2 is now out for Xbox 360

There goes your day. Just one round, you say. And you look up and see that it's 2:30 p.m. and that you've forgotten to eat lunch. Or go to work. Yep. Peggle 2 is out for the Xbox 360. It is probably my most-played Xbox One g...more

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...more

Peggle 2 ricochets onto Xbox 360 on May 7

Though early adoption of new consoles is something I tend to avoid these days, there is one game that has made me jealous of Xbox One users: Peggle 2. Soon enough, the ball-bouncing lesson in geometry and rainbows will not be...more

Peggle 2 is getting head-to-head Duel mode for free

While it was disappointing to hear that Peggle 2's multiplayer is online only, the real tragedy here is that the game is currently an Xbox One exclusive. A future update will mark the return of Peggle's Duel mode and, thankfu...more

Review: Peggle 2

The original Peggle came out of nowhere. It took a simple concept of peg-based brick-breaking that had been a staple of gaming basically since the beginning, and added a unique cartoon sheen that gave it a ton of charact...more

Review: Destiny

It's been a small journey reviewing Destiny, but now I've experienced every facet of the game and I'm ready to make my decision. As mentioned previously, the story and setting leave a lot to be desired, but the gunplay is ver...more

Review: Size DOES Matter

Simple graphics, twitch gameplay, and fresh music constitute a good formula for mobile gaming. Titles like this allow for a quick bit of play during minutes of downtime, and can paradoxically keep players going for long perio...more
