WB Interactive Entertainment Fall Preview

Disclosure: I attended this Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment sponsored event but as always my post is my unbiased opinions. I just saw my first commercial for Christmas!...for Christmas! the holiday season seems like it is getting longer and longer.  Not that I blame anyone.  With the economy as well as the craziness that occurs as the holiday season approaches (ie. Black Friday etc.) It … [Read more...]

(Video) XBOX 360 Kinect Sesame Street TV & Nat Geo TV Event

XBOX 360 Kinect NYC Event

On Tuesday, a “Sunny Day” in New York City, Rock, X and I headed to the Sesame Workshop to check out the new seasons of Kinect Sesame Street TV and Nat Geo TV. We have a lot of gaming systems in the Dancing Hotdogs household but the XBOX 360 with Kinect is by far my favorite. I love how there is no need for a controller and with the Kinect sensor you are always part of the gaming action … [Read more...]

For Dads: Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth Kinect Review

Avengers Battle for Earth

It has almost become cliché to say that serious games on the Kinect are far and few between.  It becomes even rarer to see a fighting game on any motion based game system be more than a boring exercise of flaying around and frustration.  While Marvel Avengers Battle for Earth isn’t perfect, it has been the most enjoyable and exciting game to recently come out on the Kinect. Developed by Ubisoft … [Read more...]

(Video) XBOX 360 Kinect Dance Central 3 Review

Kinect Dance Central 3

One of the most popular games in the history of the Kinect is back! Dance Central series has always held a special spot in the Dancing hotdogs household especially on holidays.  It has become a Christmas tradition for the entire family (Divina hosts over 10 people every year) to play Dance Central on Christmas morning.  My mom especially, is super enthusiastic about playing the game, as she like … [Read more...]

(Video) Kinect Sesame Street Review

XBOX 360 Kinect Sesame Street

  It seems like most video games even though they are for “kids” it seem the parents end up playing the game more than the children.  This is especially apparent when playing video games for small children.  Some of has to do with the fact that little kids sometimes want to watch what is happening on the screen without having to worry about playing the game.  Throw in the fact that the Kinect … [Read more...]

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Video Game Review

Once upon a monster logo

By Eddy Parents pull out those wallets.  If you have an Xbox 360 Kinect and little children you no doubt have a similar issue that I encounter often.  There aren’t very many games that are worth playing with your children on the Kinect.  Don’t get me wrong, good games for the Kinect do exist, it is just that they are far and few between.  The ultimate result is that the Xbox ends up being an … [Read more...]

PowerUp Heroes Video Game Review

DH PowerUP Heroes

By Eddy Exclusively for the Xbox Kinect, PowerUp Heroes takes the first step in giving players the feeling that they are a super hero.  Yet the elation of super powers is fleeting as the game runs into a number of barriers that make it a tougher sell for adults, more specifically, an extremely short single player campaign, repetitive game play and a lack of complexity.  Even with me saying … [Read more...]

NY Comic Con Thursday Rundown

NYCC 1

By Eddy Just got back from NY Comic Con (NYCC) and boy are my legs killing me.  It is not a fun walk from Grand Central to the Javitz Center, everything looks so close from google maps on my iphone.  Though I can’t help but feel worse for some of the other people walking with me still in total costume.  In New York City you see all types of crazy stuff, but for some reason it doesn’t prepare … [Read more...]

What I want for Christmas…or more specifically, right now

...Rocksmith by Ubisoft. It combines two things I love (guitar and video games) and brings them together like my favorite ice cream Ben and Jerry's Half Baked. Yes I know that there have been other guitar + video games (Rock Band and Guitar Hero come to mind as well as all the other imitators). Yet Rocksmith give me the small glimmer of hope that it is more than a game, but actually something … [Read more...]

Kinect Your Fitness Evolved XBOX 360 Kinect Game Review

Kinectxboxgames Your Shape Fitness

By Eddy One of the great things about the Kinect is the ability of free motion.  While some might find the thought of not having a controller to tether you to the TV, you have to admit when it come to doing exercise the ability to move fully is definitely appealing. We had the opportunity to try out Your Fitness Evolved by Ubisoft and we found it to be one of the most complete work out … [Read more...]

EA Swing into Spring Event

Dragon age 2

By Eddy Every year the EA Swing into Spring has at least a couple of title that I was really interested in checking out.  This year, was the exception…this year I wanted to see all of them.  Unfortunately, with this embarrassment of riches, I was forced to miss a couple of trains home and I didn’t even get a chance to see everything I wanted to see.  It’s crazy, but this current lineup for EA … [Read more...]
