Battle Rage 3D: The Robot Wars
The media has been salivating about the future of 3D entertainment, and with 14 planned 3D film releases this year, 2009 is the year of 3D. Be prepared to be blown away by the first ‘REAL 3D’ console game. By using stereoscopic glasses on the Wii, you can visualize the future of gaming. This third person shooter has elements of a beat’em'up game that allows a player to control giant robots with amazing 3D graphics. Every robot has its own personal weapons (for melee and distance combat), but these can be enhanced with additional and unique weapon types collected while in combat in the arena. The player can fight alone (versus one, two or even three opponents) or in a team against a common foe, on selected battlegrounds (10 arenas) in short, quick, brutal skirmishes
Want to get fit, but in a hilarious, funfilled, action packed sporting way? This game features eight sporting events which are divided into four categories: all-round, speed, power, and skill. Pigs compete in the Farmyard sports using a combination of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck for each event which requires speed, timing and more than a little sweat! The game includes party modes, themed around event styles, single event fun and some hilarious bonus games. Farmyard Party provides an entertaining multiplayer experience (4 player mode), which brings farmyard fun to the Nintendo Wii.
Connie Talbot Over the rainbow Sing-a-Long
The hugely popular UK based talent show ‘Britain’s got Talent’ creates the stars of tomorrow from humble plumbers and cleaners, but nothing shines more brightly than a 7 year old school girl who sings like an angel. Since coming second in the show last year, she has appeared on top entertainment shows Oprah and Ellen and her debut single in the USA knocked Cold Play on the top spot in the Billboard Charts. Her debut album ‘Over The Rainbow’ went gold in four countries, straight into the No1 in a number of Asian charts and she is currently breaking into the North American market with a US deal.
Now Connie is to appear in her very own console game, which will feature 12 fantastic tracks from her best selling debut album Over the Rainbow. In the game, the player will be able to sing along with Connie in the fantastic karaoke mode, or with other friends or family members in multiplayer fun.
The new Nintendo Wii™ MotionPlus™ controller extension for the Nintendo Wii™, gives players a realistic experience with a fresh approach to play, incorporating the Wii MotionPlus’ unique gyroscope-based, motion-sensing functionality.
