Batman The Dark Knight Rises is a great movie and follows up on the two films in this now finished Batman trilogy very well. The movie focuses a lot on Bruce Wayne instead of Batman (Christian Bale). The Dark Knight Rises is appropriate for its pg-13 rating. There’s not a lot of cussing, and the violence is on par with the other movies in this trilogy. Our friends at Colorado Mom talk about if The Dark Night Rises is appropriate for {Read More}

SKATE 3 Video Game Review

Skate3SCREEN011

Overall SKATE 3 for XBOX is a well-structured, exciting game. The layout of this game is almost exactly like SKATE 2 with better graphics. The idea of the game is to make your skateboard company the best around. You have to design the board with your logos and then promote your boards through photo shoots, videos and challenges. The best thing about this game is the ability to roam around and do many things. For one, you can take off {Read More}

Princess Tiana Joins Disney Royal Court

Princess Tiana

Today is the big day for the Disney DVD release of Princess and the Frog! Disney sent us a copy last week of the Blu-Ray combo pack and I loved watching this weekend. Tiana is most definitely a modern day princess with the message that Prince Charming doesn’t always have to save the girl, some girls are more than capable of saving Prince Charming. Loved the movie and Tiana as role model. This Sunday a magical ceremony took place in {Read More}

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince XBOX

I really enjoyed this game. It is much improved from the Order of the Phoenix game last released. Some highlights: Things unlock pretty quickly. You learn how to do certain spells right away. Missions and duals happen quicker than in previous games. The Quidditch broom is easier to manuever. The way it is laid out on the controller makes better sense. You can run really fast to places. This is a big improvement. I recommend this game for all Harry {Read More}

Xbox Headset Experience

Do you really need to pay $300 for an xbox headset? Well, it depends on the games you play and the level of gamer you are. When I first started playing Halo 3, I just used the wired and wireless headset made by Microsoft. They are both a good fit if you are a casual gamer playing for fun. But, they do break rather really easily. For instance i was playing Halo 3 one time and tried to take my {Read More}
