Free Controller with Toys”R”Us PS3 Purchase

If you’ve been planning on getting an 80 or 160 GB PS3 for Christmas then maybe now is the time to go ahead and bite that bullet.
You could always play it for a while and then wrap it back up to put under the tree. Not that I would ever do that…
Toys “R” Us is running a promotion right now where if you buy an 80 or 160 GB PS3 in one of their brick-and-mortar stores [no on-line purchases] then you get a free PS3 dual shock wireless controller. A controller that Toys “R” Us is listing at $54.99.
Granted, you …read more

The Circus is Coming to the Wii and DS

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has been around since Ringling Brothers Circus and Barnum & Bailey Circus merged way back in 1919.
Since then, when most people think about “going to the circus” they think about going to see a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show.
Unfortunately, no matter how much fun it is to watch the show, you were never able to participate in it…until now.
Now you can be a human cannonball, dance with elephants and even dress up as a clown to keep the crowds happy with your expert juggling.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey is coming …read more

Official “Star Wars” Wii Lightsabers

Do you love playing games like Star Wars: The Clone Wars?  If so, you might be interested in the official Star Wars Wii Anakin & Yoda Light-Up Replica Lightsabers Dueling Pack which is being released today.

Choose between the blue Anakin lightsaber or Yoda’s green one and get into the game.  The Wii Remote fits inside and easily connects to the Nunchuk.  The product description says that the handles are designed to reflect the grip of the characters so I’m not sure how comfortable they are to use.
I’m guessing you can control whether the sabers are glowing since there is …read more

Pre-order “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be released on November 10, 2009 but you can pre-order it now.  This first-person tactical shooter game is the sixth installment in the series.  The first Modern Warfare really appealed to some players who wanted a change from being in old war environment since it takes place in the present day.

I will write a more in-depth overview of the game when it is released but I can tell you that gamers will experience modern combat settings with new weapons, action and options in single player, multiplayer and the co-op Special Ops Mode.
The plot …read more

“Where the Wild Things Are” Video Game

The film adaptation of the popular children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are, will be coming out tomorrow so, of course, a corresponding video game is being released for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo DS.

The environment is sheer fantasy so it looks like this could be a very fun game.  I think that the effects in the movie look pretty impressive and, from the few screenshots I’ve seen, the game’s graphics also look good.
In the game, players must assume the role of Max, the “King of All Wild Things,” as they navigate their way on …read more

David Bowie Coming to LEGO Rockband

Well, cover me in gold lamé and call me Ziggy Stardust because David Bowie is coming to LEGO Rockband.
Am I the only one who thinks the Legofied Bowie looks a bit like MacGyver?
Yeah. I probably am. OK. Maybe MacGyver at a club? And is he wearing suspenders? It’s hard to tell from this angle.
Also, why does LEGO Bowie look like he’s about to kick my ass?
ANYWAY, here’s the teaser trailer for Let’s Dance. LEGO Bowie looks so freakin’ cute and the LEGO crowd slays me.
Here’s the complete song list for the console version if you’re interested:
All American Rejects, “Swing, Swing”

Official Nintendo Wii Carry All Case

I love my Nintendo Wii and I’ve thought about taking it with me when I visit friends and family but I’m always too afraid to break it or lose things.  This week, Nintendo is releasing an official Wii Carry All Case that can tote the essentials for up to 4 players.

The bag is made of a padded fabric so that it your console is well protected and has room for the sensor bar, power cord, AV cables, console stand, 2 Wii Remotes, 2 Nunchuks, and up to 3 Wii Game Discs.

Pre-order “LEGO Indiana Jones 2”

The LEGO series of video games are a serious guilty pleasure of mine.  Sure, you can pick up the real versions of the games but will your characters explode into a million LEGO pieces every time he gets hit?  Yeah, I didn’t think so.

While I think my favorite was LEGO Batman, the first LEGO Indiana Jones was almost tied so I’m pretty excited about the sequel.  LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues comes out next month but you can pre-order it now!
I love that the games are like a satirical version of the films and this one will include …read more
