It’s a sticky situation. The idea of arranged marriages is repulsive, disrespectful to both parties, and antiquated.

Where’s the multiplatform Peggle 2?

I’m a self-proclaimed Peggle addict. I savored that game, enjoying it immediately after its 2007 launch on the PC, but then also following it to the PS3 and even putting it on my Nexus 7.
