I don't even own a 360 and I did it. Psychonauts is a damn good game and needs to be played.

Using what, the keyboard? The controls consisted of movement, jump and the special attack buttons. Not really complicated. I used a gamepad and it didn't seem any different than other games.

You don't read his news page (well more of a blog of random rants) obviously. Tim has been known to spooge over nintendo. Especially animal crossing

Kay. So the Nancy has yet to say whether or not he has done so. So I sent yet two more from two different emails... uh... again.

If you must know, the game filled me with an almost impalpable joy. The double fine logo is worth seven emails alone.

hello,

I am a dying 11 year old boy. I spend my final days in the hospital wishing I could play Psychonauts on my Xbox 360. If you would make this possible, I will spend my deathday money (grandma gave it to me early) on two more 360's. Please hurry, I think I hear death coming.

Sincerely,
Timmy
