  1. I don’t even know what the game is about and I’m already figuring out how to allocate the money to buy it. Guess I will be buying used books this semester. :)

  2. I can’t help to recall those days when mama told me that too much of a good thing is bad.

  3. I literally have no idea what this game would be. Sales calls? Awkward sexual tension? Seems a bit random. And a bit like a misguided effort to cash in on the show’s success.
    But hey. I’m not much of a gamer.

  4. An article on IGN.com says the game would be a “task management game like Diner Dash”. The article also goes on to say that you play as Jim Halpert and you interact with the other office characters.

  5. i can’t wait to control Roy’s action character as he dodges pepper spray and clocks Jim.

  6. As a person who plays computer games, I honestly do not understand the appeal for this item. And I played the Sims for years.

  7. Haha you read my mind Annie! That would be cool if it was like the sims…

  8. I’ll buy it. But hey, it looks like it could be a bit… like all those games based on pixar movies. They almost all suck. I hope it isn’t like those!
