In the chuckle-worthy animation below, THQ tells players to "Protect Your Junk." You may doubt that means anything other than an excuse to publish that ridiculous image.

Now, fans of the Jimmy Buffett universe will get to hop into their very own Margaritaville. And old Jimmy has big plans for his digital venture, like connecting both games (somehow) to his chain of restaurants and hotels through goods purchased in-game. You'll see whether Margaritaville floats amidst the lot of social games come Jan. 25.
