There's no denying how incredibly lucky my kids are when it comes to gaming. Both the boys (and Daddy also) are HUGE gaming fans and love nothing better than to play on their gadgets and consoles for hours on end.
Given the chance I think they'd all skip their meals, sleeptime and bathtimes to fit in more gaming time if they could.
When we took a peek at some of our favourite games for Christmas, it made me realise just how lucky the kids have been to have already got to try out many of the games that are set to be favourites this Christmas. Since we wrote that post, they've also had Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash! for the Nintendo 3DS to review and we are currently putting Mario Tennis Ultra Smash and Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival (both for the Nintendo Wii U) to the test with reviews to follow soon!
So because of just how fortunate they have been this year with all the new games they have already received, I've asked the boys to pick just one more game each that they would add to their wish list. And here are their choices:
For some reason unbeknown to me, D loves watching Adventure Time. Whenever I've caught any of it on TV, it seems full of odd characters and an even stranger storyline but D just can't get enough of it!
So his choice was Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations (it's available for Nintendo Wii-U, Nintendo 3DS and also for Playstation 4 and Xbox one).
We haven't actually played this game but this is what it's all about:
Based on the popular television series from Cartoon Network, Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations see the dynamic duo explore the Land of Ooo, as they try to solve the tickertype mysteries, tackle puzzles and beat enemies as Finn and Jake work together as professional detectives. With five cases to unravel, each of which is a separate story, players can interact with dozens of Adventure Time favourites including Ice King, Magic Man and more and meet the colourful inhabitants of Ooo, as they step in to their own episode of Adventure Time. (Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations – PEGI 7, RRP starts at £19.99)
J enjoyed watching the Kung Fu Panda movies, so this was his choice:
Kung-Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends is due for release soon and will be available for Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS as well as Xbox one and Playstation 4.
Again this isn't one we've played yet, but here's what we know about this game:
Set in the Kung Fu Panda universe, Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends is an action-packed brawler that sees players battle alongside all their favourite Kung Fu characters, in the quest to win both honour and glory! Fight it out alongside Tai Lung, Po, Tigress and more much-loved Kung Fu Panda characters, as up to four friends can compete in the Showdown of Legendary Legends. With 25 popular heroes and villians playable, 12 exciting locations - including moving and danger levels and single player and multiplayer modes available, fans of the Kung Fu Panda franchise won’t be disappointed this Christmas. (Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends – PEGI 7, RRP starts at £19.99)There's no disclosure to write for this post as these are the games my kids chose from a selection that we were given information about - no payment has been received for this post and there was no obligation to write it.
