GFWL Spring Sale Ends with a Fart

Microsoft's Games for Windows Live March Sale for the Personal Computer ended with this weekend's $4.99 offering of Viva Pinata. The sale event started off strong with Batman: Arkham Asylum late last month but then it never really offered anything remotely substantial afterwards. Bioshock 2 plus its expansion was featured with a bonus Microsoft Points credit but I wasn't impressed: the price should have been cut in half. I was really hoping that Dirt 2 would make the list but it didn't. Viva Pinata is a great game but because the sequel is scuh a tremednous improvement over the original, there is no reason why anyone should buy this first iteration of this complex pet simulation. So the sale didn't just end with a whimper... It ended with a fart.

What smells worse than the silent-but-deadly gas? A bad sale offer.
Who in their right mind would buy this? Those who don't know about the sequel.
