Viva Piñata aids in gamer's marriage proposal

Hey kids, Viva Piñata isn't just a great game that'll help keep you entertained and improve your gardening skills, but it can also be used for marriage proposals too!

PINATAcast over on the Piñata Island forums did just that, he proposed to his girlfriend by using Viva Piñata and sending her an in game crate filled with a single diamond (the only diamond his diggerling has ever unearthed) with the message "will you marry me?". She was playing on her console in the other room and when she received the message, giggling and laughter could be heard, because she thought it was a silly joke. But PINATAcast was serious and went down on his knee asking for her hand in marriage again. Knowing that he was serious, she started crying, said yes and their wedding is tentatively scheduled for this Spring. Congrats PINATAcast, your interesting proposal worked and we hope you have a happy marriage filled with lots of sugary sweets and fuzzy Bunnycombs. Those damn Bunnycombs are so cute.

3. I wonder what romantic dance they recreated after that from the game?

4. Pretty lame. He couldn't even be bothered to capitalize it? My wife would have (I think justifiably) been pissed if I tried something like that.

5. Well, there goes his gaming life.

6. I know this is the least straight comment i can make, but i would call this gesture cute.

7. i wouldn't be so sure mauricio , his wife seems pretty gaming-friendly especially if they've each got their own 360's in seperate rooms (a definately must for any gaming couple) !

only once the little pinatas come will he have problems with his gaming life.

8. Great story to tell the kids :P

9. Wow, that is soooo romantic! Come on dude. That is very unique but I think you could have done better. I like to hear you explaining that one to your kids. lol.

10. That guy needs serious counseling.

Posted at 5:03PM on Sep 13th 2007 by ANt

11. I'm not sure what is dickier, the fact that he did this, or the the fact that his gamertag is "Poetic Sunrise"??

Posted at 5:06PM on Sep 13th 2007 by ANt

12. Viva pinata aids? oh christ not my chewnicorn! NOOO damn u dastardos for sharing needles nooo!!! this is sad.

Posted at 5:23PM on Sep 13th 2007 by T3H WICKERMAN

13. Just because someone is a gentle, nice person with a name "Poetic Sunrise" doesn't mean you should all go and make fun of him.

Of course, I think it is kind of sweet to do that to your girlfriend. But of course, like Brandon Tyler said, "How would you say that to your kids?"

We got married from a message I sent her via Xbox Live. :P

I think it's a wierd story with a good ending, assholes.

14. xenocidic - you said it. My little one is 11 months. Since about 9 months she's slept quite well, so I've been back in a decent enough gaming routine since then - still doesn't hold a candle to what I could do before we had her, which in turn was nothing compared to what I could do in my bachelor days.

That's the crappiest part. I've now got the money to spend on gaming, but not the time to go with it.

Posted at 7:09PM on Sep 13th 2007 by Viridium

15. Awww nice! I agree about the capitalisation though, make an effort!!

Posted at 7:44PM on Sep 13th 2007 by Boff

16. I wonder if he will give her a red ring? Get it? Awww...come on you guys. You know it was funny.

Posted at 2:04AM on Sep 14th 2007 by popozao

17. ^Clearly, someone who doesn't even know me.^
