Xbox Live feeling the Paperboy love

Alone on Valentine’s Day? Don’t fret. V Day is just another holiday on which you could be wasting money on a lover who will break your heart in the end anyway. The smarter thing to do is invest your hard-earned cash in Xbox Live. It never forgets your name in the morning and always wants to show you something new. Best of all, it doesn’t make you sleep on the sofa for enjoying bloody death. What moron would pine for a sweetheart in the face of odds like that?

As of Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 9 a.m. (1 p.m. PST), you can download the beloved arcade classic Paperboy for your Xbox Live Arcade collection. The title will be avaliable worldwide for 400 Microsoft points and includes a new multiplayer mode that allows gamers to play together or on Xbox Live. Call me crazy, but I’d take these vintage titles over most of the next gen stuff out there. This title is a must have, and besides, you get to break stuff.

And remember, no matter how much she says she loves you, Microsoft loves you more.
