Skylanders Giants Trackers

Being the number one kid’s game of 2011, Skylanders have raided the shelves of many retailers and caught the eye of many. Activision has really proved themselves as a good gaming company! Now you think with such a huge success Activision would either stop or just create miniature updates to improve the game, but instead Activision is going to create a whole new series that will add onto the Skylanders game. Skylanders Giants will feature new Skylander Monsters that are huge powerful monsters! The new Skylanders Giants game will feature 40 new monsters and a whole new game play that will incorporate the use of these new Giant Sklyanders. This new game will be for the Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and the 3DS. This game can be pre-ordered now at Amazon and will be released on October 21, 2012.

Nintendo Releases 3DS XL, August 18

On August 18, 2012 Nintendo will be releasing the new Nintendo 3DS XL! The new Nintendo 3DS XL will feature a 4.88 inch top screen and a 4.18 inch bottom screen. This is a huge improvement in screen size compared to the old Nintendo 3DS, the 3DS XL has a screen that is one inch larger than the old 3DS! The 3DS XL will also come with a 4GB SD card. Although the 3DS XL does not adopt the Circle Pad Pro’s second analog stick you can still play Nintendo 3DS games on this new hand held device! The controls are similar to the Nintendo 3DS; this means that transitioning from the 3DS to the 3DS XL will be very simple! The new 3DS XL will be set at $200 at the U.S and can be bought in red, blue or white.

New Pokemon Black and White II Game

I guess the producers of Pokemon never run out of new Pokemon games because in the fall of 2012 a new Pokemon Black and White 2 game will be coming out for the DS. From what I know the game is going to be set about 2 years after the Pokemon Black and White game and there will be new characters to choose from as well as a new rival to fight! Other new items and places include: a new professor, a new hometown, and new legendary Pokemon. From playing Pokemon White with my little sister I am not so sure if the producers of Pokemon can continue to invent new Pokemon especially after seeing Vanilluxe. Once I noticed that they were using dairy products to create Pokemon it meant that they are running out of ideas. Hopefully this new game will not disappoint and hopefully Nintendo will continue to release more information about the game.


Wii U

So where do I begin? Well for starters, Nintendo is coming out with another great and innovative gaming station, but this new device can do more than just play games! The Wii U is probably, up to date the coolest piece of technology I have ever seen! The new Wii U has the ability to act as both a remote control for your T.V. as well as a game controller! The Wii U comes with the basic Wii controls, such as the X,Y,A,B buttons, the control pad, and the analog sticks, but the Wii U also comes with new buttons to make it easier for gamers to play their favorite games, these are the trigger like L, ZL, R, and ZR buttons. The Wii U also comes with a huge screen in between the controls which gives you the ability to play your games without using the T.V! This can be very useful for families with a limited amount of Televisions in the home because if your Dad wants to watch his sports game and you want to play your video game, you can still play with the Wii U even without the use of the T.V. therefore you don’t have to stop playing your games and your dad doesn’t have to miss the game! Another crazy feature about the Wii U is it has a built in micro phone and speaker. This will allow you to engage in conversations with your friend’s right from the Wii U! Other features include a volume switch, a power button, and my favorite, the TV button. This feature enables you to access the TV controls even though your Wii U is turned off! All in all the Wii U looks amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on this new product!
