I got hit with the Skylanders Flu

Jan 28, 2012

The other week I broke down and purchased the $99 Mega Pack at Best Buy and I’ll admit this is starting to become an addiction.  I just spent $35 at Gamestop picking up an adventure pack of 3 to get the last two elementals we needed (Air and Life). We also picked up two extra figures that we wanted while we were there.

The game itself isn’t the hardest or most complex thing around but it’s fun.  I spent most of my morning today leveling up my Chop Chop (skeleton dude) to a level 8 and completing all the side objectives in the first couple levels.  I warn anyone thinking of picking up this game, it will hit you hard in the wallet because like me, you will want to collect them all and right now they are almost impossible to find in individual packs.  I was calling around to stores Wednesday hoping someone had a shipment come in that day.  Lucky me was browsing the Gamestop website and saw they had some at the local store so after a call down there it turned out they had the ones we needed.

 I’ll have a more in depth review at a later date, but for right now, I’m enjoying my time as a Portal Master in the world of Skyland.

Ubisoft bringing Classic and Popular TV Game Shows to Xbox 360 and Wii

Oct 19, 2011

Ubisoft revealed that it will be publishing four new interactive video games based on a collection of television’s most popular and beloved game shows. Created by Ludia Inc., Family Feud® 2012 Edition, Hole in the Wall® Deluxe Edition, The Price is Right® Decades and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire™ 2012 Edition video games will be released in the United States and Canada this fall.

Family Feud 2012 Edition features all of the familiar and favorite challenges from the hit TV game show. Players can compete in one of two gameplay modes – challenge mode or party mode. In challenge mode, a team of up to five players challenges one of 48 opposing families to unlock hilarious outtakes and ‘best of’ videos from the television show which features host Steve Harvey. In party mode, two teams will battle head-to-head to name the most popular responses from a pool of more than 2000 questions. Family Feud 2012 will be released on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Nintendo Wii™ on October 18, 2011.

Based on the global television game show phenomenon, Hole in the Wall Deluxe Edition is a game where players must contort their bodies to fit through bizarrely shaped holes in themed moving walls hurtling toward them. The video game will feature three different modes – practice alone on one of the 800 different walls in show mode, play survival mode and attack wall after wall until you drop, or compare your skills with other competitors in an online multiplayer ‘last-man standing’ mode where up to 10 players can put their skills to the test simultaneously.  Hole in the Wall Deluxe Edition will be released exclusively on Kinect™ for Xbox 360® on November 20, 2011.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary season, The Price is Right reigns as the longest running game show in television history. The Price is Right Decades video game features popular pricing games that span across all four decades of the television show – 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s – including ‘Plinko,’ ‘The Big Wheel,’ and the popular ‘Showcase.’ The video game will also feature pricing games not included in any previous The Price is Right video game, and the chance to unlock bonus moments from the TV show. The Price is Right Decades will be released on Wii on October 18, 2011 and on Xbox 360 with Kinect compatibility on November 15, 2011.

Currently in its tenth season in syndication in the U.S., Who Wants To Be A Millionaire remains one of the most internationally-watched television franchises of all time, having aired in more than 100 countries worldwide. Scheduled to be released on November 1, 2011, the game will be available exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire features cleverly written trivia questions, similar to what you would see on the actual TV show. The game also includes sets and stages modeled after the TV show and incorporates all of the familiar gameplay elements including ‘Jump the Question’ and ‘Ask the Audience’ lifelines. With the Kinect sensor, players can play just as they would on the television show by giving their “Final Answer” verbally, or using hand gestures to select the answer to more than 2500 questions.
