Oh lol. Basically a marketing way of saying "we make really awful crap that everyone else has the good sense not to."

The original was fun for like one play through. Though, we did at least drink when we made a cup. These would all be good features, if the game wasn't pretty much just as easy to set up in your house to play in real life. Plus when you get tired of pong, in real life it's easier to convert to flip cup or slap cup and keep going. I guess the one benefit is it might not be as messy, but when a tarp probably costs about the same price....(yes, we are serious "pong toss" players).

You'd think that a "sequel" of this nature would include online play. From the description I don't see what's so new about Pro.

HAHAHA, this is the best laugh I had in a long time. I can see the sequels now:Incoming 2, Sexy Poker 2, and Superman 64:Golden Ring Edition. :P

^^ Golden Ring sounds like the sort of condition Superman 64 already suffered from.

I'm trying to turn it into a bum disorder joke but I don't think it's working. SUPERMAN 64 WAS BUM. There, better.

Why don't they just drop "Frat Party" from the title, add "Beer" to the title, and have a disclaimer saying that this game is not meant to advocate alcohol use by people under the age of 21?

Mamma mia... p=(_)

BlueFlameBat-san, that would make the game almost NEVER leave the Top 20. (Then
again, I was wrong about the Poker game...)

Their only selling point was that it used to have 'beer' in the title, and it got taken away.

Being the only person to ever like this game, I think I'll give the new one a shot.
When ever I throw a party, the game still gets played.

Hmmm, the original game was made up on a stupid premise. It doesn't matter how much polish the developers add to the game, if it is based on a stupid concept, it will surely fail. Notice I said stupid, not ridiculous. There are a lot of great games that are ridiculous. Take Conker's Bad Fur Day, for instance.

Some people will never learn. Also, this game should come free (or with a refund) for those people who bought the first title.
