The $1,000,000 Pyramid for Wii from Ubisoft review and giveaway

$1,000,000 Pyramid [amazon] brings back the classic, Emmy award-winning game show from 1973 as two pairs of players compete to make their way to the winner’s circle. Staying true to the original show, players will choose from six categories and guess words based on a theme. Score more points than the other team and get a chance to be the grand winner of $1,000,000!

This classic game show revival will feature over 800 categories (with over 4,800 words) and a two player head-to-head mode that is sure to get the whole family involved. As players progress through the game, they will unlock bonus content that can be used to customize their in-game avatars.

It’s a great party game because of the trivia aspect of it, so much so there is even a party mode. It’s a straight forward game and very simple to play… it’ll be great for adults just looking to test their own game skills.

Pyramid has a personal connection to my family because my father was on the show back in the 70’s.

Michael Jackson The Experience for Wii by Ubisoft Review and Giveaway

It’s time to break it down! Look think what you will of Michael his music was amazing and I dont know if there is more then 3 tracks that he’s ever created that wont have you tapping a toe in less then a minute.  The Experience is from the line of games by Ubisoft – its awesome how they nailed the moves, nailed the music, and give you so much game play in just one artist.

When I first took this game out my wife and I danced for over 2 hours and even stopped for dinner in between rounds. We keep trying to beat each other scores, dance to tracks from easy, medium and hard.  Even my little one could dance to some of the simple tracks.

Check out whats included on Michael Jackson The Experience track list:

  • Bad
  • Beat It
  • Billie Jean
  • Black or White
  • Dirty Diana
  • Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough
  • Earth Song
  • Ghosts
  • Heal the World
  • In The Closet
  • Leave Me Alone
  • Money
  • Remember the Time
  • Rock with You
  • Smooth Criminal
  • Speed Demon
  • Streetwalker
  • Sunset Driver
  • The Girl Is Mine
  • The Way You Make Me Feel
  • They Don’t Care About Us
  • Thriller
  • Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’
  • Who Is It
  • Will You Be There
  • Workin’ Day and Night

After checking out that list I bet there is like 6 songs – you’re already thinking about listening too or wanting to play now…  This is an awesome party game because you can rock it with up to 4 players with a few different game modes Battle one-on-one (or two-on-two) in Challenge mode, form your own dance crew, or be the star with your friends as your very own back-up dancers.

I totally think Michael Jackson The Experience for Wii is worth a purchase [Amazon]. You know what the awesome part is – that we’re giving one away.

Just Dance 2 – Review and Giveaway!

Just got to play a few hours worth Just Dance 2 [Amazon] after having played Just Dance Kids for a few weeks with Marc before we broke out Just Dance 2 I was thinking this was just going to be some updated songs, well its more then just that! Where in the kids version you’re watching real actors/dancers here you’re watching white people like shapes wearing funky costumes shaking it. Game has a very large soundtrack, which isnt just pop and top 40… so it does have some interesting choices I’ll say that… but this version clearly has the ability to add on songs using the Wii Points and downloading them which means you can add dozens of extra tracks and they’ll keep pumping new songs into the library too. Here’s whats on the game out of box…

Just Dance 2 Tracklist
1.    Avril Lavigne – “Girlfriend”
2.    Bangles – “Walk Like An Egyptian”

5.    Blondie – “Call Me”
6.    Bollywood – “Katti Kalandal”
7.    Boney M. – “Rasputin”
8.    Charleston – “Mugsy Baloney”
9.    Cher – “The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s In His Kiss)”
10.    Digitalism – “Idealistic”
11.    Donna Summer – “Hot Stuff”
12.    Elvis Presley – “Viva Las Vegas”
13.    Fatboy Slim – “Rockafeller Skank”
14.    Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out”

28.    Rihanna – “S.O.S.”
29.    Snap! – “The Power”
30.    Sorcerer – “Dagomba”

42.    The Weather Girls – “It’s Raining Men”
43.    Vampire Weekend – “A-Punk”
44.    Wham! – “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go”

I thought the game play was pretty fair and clearly this is totally a party game for 4 people as long as you have the space. My wife and I laughed at each other while we took turns dancing one at a time (yes, she kicked my ass every time!).

Just Dance Kids for Wii – Review and Giveaway!

Just Dance Kids [ Amazon ] is just that a dance game for kids. Its pretty awesome to see my son’s face light up when we pull it out… cause he knows its time to DANCE!!! and thats just it since this has three yo gabba gabba songs we created a custom playlist and thats pretty much all he dances too.

I challenged my wife to a few goes to the random choice, of course she kicked my butt! Over 40 fun dances/songs that are led by real kids, which really gets my son into the game (as he watches the kids on TV and tries to follow along – monkey see monkey do right?!).

It is a family game that’s for sure and in the end a game that gets you off the couch and into dance mode. I highly recommend this for the kids (yes, there are 3 or 4 songs that are snoozers like Happy Birthday) but otherwise its a great kiddie sound track!

Ubisoft Petz Fantasy: Sunshine Magic for DS review and giveaway

This post is part of a sponsored series from Ubisoft, celebrating “12 Days of Giveaways.” See below for how you can enter up to 12 times to win fun and family-friendly video games.

Petz Fantasy: Sunshine Magic [Amazon] is a second generation game the follow up to the smash hit Petz (it was all the rage in 2009!) For many its the software equal of tamagotchi.  You hatch these pets, care and tend to them.  This is a great game for little ones that understand the concepts of pets or if you’re trying to teach the concepts of owning a pet.

I’d bet there will be a number of parents who’d rather get a virtual unicorn instead of a puppy this holiday season.  So the interactive play is with mini games that are easy enough for kids as young as 3/4 to figure out. Once they hatch your child will feed them, clean them, play fun games and learn their preferences to help them grow. Unlock tons of accessories and up to 20 different costumes inside the game. Which will add a lot sticky value to the game. Fantasy Petz are based in a virtual world with 4 types of powers: Flight, Ice, Fire or Speed – which will allow different games for different petz.  There is a sister version of Petz Fantasy: Moonlight Magic which also holds another 20 petz.

Overall the game is worth wild and certainly would make for a great holiday gift – which I would say is way better then a puppy or a kitten that you’ll end up dealing with long after the batteries go on the DS.

Now its time for the giveaway!
