Who needs Sunset Riders? Game Pack 13 has Venetian Blinds!

$3 for this? I know Game Room is like one long running gag anyway, but wow. I can understand (sort of) people really wanting some specific version of an early 80s baseball or casino, but was anyone asking for this one?

Yeah game pack13 has some good ones but others like veneitan blinds & surround should be avoided by all.

This is the venetian blind that breaks the Jeff's back. If Jeff plays this he will question his entire life that lead up to this. We must keep it away.

@techknight:  That's some WiiWare fireplace-level shit right there.
 
Actually, no.  It's worse.

Holy Shit! That's for real? I thought that was a joke or something... How do they justify that? Is that a proof-of-concept program they're selling for 3$?

This was the future in 1975. Leave it on all day and you burn a window into your TV.

Nobody justifies it! There's nobody left to be held accountable anyways! They're just saying "fuck it".

So if Jeff's Twitter is to be believed then this might just be tha last Quicklook of the year: 
 

The thought of recording a Quick Look for Venetian Blinds is the only thing getting me out of bed today. Let's finish strong!

At this point, whoever is actually running Game Room these days is probably just out to troll Jeff and Ryan.

Man, I thought it was bad when they were releasing unfinished crap like Thwocker.
 
But this... this is a new level of not trying.

Whatever guys, you know the Venetian Blinds license cost like $745 million to get.

I tried venetian blinds and for a few minutes I couldn't even get the blinds to open. The joystick wouldn't respond. Yes, i got stuck in venetian blinds.
