With Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade "Party in a Box" now in full swing, I decided to take it upon myself to go ahead and throw my own party on Bill Gates' dime -- except by myself, cold and alone. Seeing as how I have no friends, I had to go the solo route.

While eating my Papa John's pizza and playing some retro XBLA titles, I was able to rock out to some 80s tunes thanks to an included compilation CD. So, now my little Joystiqers, witness the mayhem of a party in a box of one.



Grab the controller and dig in, you little blogger you!





Nothing like a little "Come on Eileen" to go with a good Pac-Man session.





Time for some Ryu kick assery.





Yeah, so, I wanted to play some multiplayer and kick some noobie-town butt, but I got the dreaded "timeout" message. WTF?!?!?!?!?





Of course a Sony fanboy had to ruin all my Microsoft fun. Check out that look of utter disgust at my indulgence.





Nintendo had to crash the party as well.





A large pepperoni, green peppers, and onions pizza is just about dunzo. Woohoo party in a box of one!
