It’s WTF time again and this week I will be highlighting something on Xbox Live that still has me scratching my head. Apparently there is a whole genre of “games” in the Indie section of Xbox Live that turn your Xbox controller into a personal massager.
Let that sink in for a second….
There are multiple apps that people can download so they can sit on the couch and get a weak, uncomfortable massage from their controller. Of all the massage apps out there, the one that really stuck with me was Avatar Zombie Massager EXTREME!! As ridiculous as this game is, at least the developer has a sense of humor about the whole thing.
The description on Xbox Live reads, “After minutes of studying XBLIG Memes, we have created The Ultimate Super XBLIG Game-App Thing! You know this is a surefire hit, because it has ZOMBIES! Yes, Zombies, the one constant known to launch any title, however stupid, to the top of the charts. But wait! Theres More! We even have AVATARS! And, download now to try out your Free Trial, and we’ll throw in extra EXTREMENESS! Download NOW!!”
So the entire experience in a nutshell boils down to adjusting the strength, speed, and style of your controller massage as well as which character to display onscreen, either your Avatar or the most docile, harmless zombie to grace your television screen since Zombie Ed from Shaun of the Dead. Yup….that’s it….just getting a massage from your Xbox Controller. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it?
For only 80 Microsoft Points this may appeal to a some who have a wicked sense of humor and don’t mind supporting an indie developer who has his tongue firmly planted in cheek. So to MatthewM who graced my Xbox with this absolute joke but surprisingly humorous excuse for a game, I ask you…WTF?
If you see any games or apps out there on the interwebz that you would like to see featured in a future edition of WTF Wednesday send me a tweet @anxiety83.
