Instead of the customary wishes of happy this and happy that, celebration of any sort can always be had with a videogame of some kind as well. After all, they’re videogames. They may not be donuts (Homer Simpson has that covered), but is there anything they can’t do?
Anyway, if you find yourself ready to play a game on this 4th of July, 2009 there’s one title in particular you should at least give a whirl once on Xbox Live Arcade. If you’ve purchased it, head back into your game library and fish out Boom Boom Rocket. It’s not going to replace what those other games that require you to have bought tons of plastic to play, but it will give you what those other titles do not. Fireworks! Lots and lots of fireworks. Besides, these fireworks are guaranteed to be legal.
