    Review: Just Dance 2014

    Thank you Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. To learn more about Just Dance 2014, visit the Just Dance Facebook Page! What I loved: The track list is full of hits! What I hated: Sometimes took me awhile to get the moves. 40 GB storage needed for Xbox One install What surprised me: How well it tracked the moves via Kinect We’ve reviewed games in the dance genre on GamingAngels before. Mostly because I believe it’s one of the best workouts you can do in the privacy of your own home. You can groove like you’re Beyonce without anyone else staring at you. Dancing not only lifts your soul, but while you are having a great time, you are burning serious calories! In Just Dance 2014, Ubisoft has provided another dance game that is a consistent mark in the franchise. Just Dance franchise is known for having the hits and Just

    Xbox One launch date is here!

    How many of you are going to midnight launch events to pick up your Xbox One? My Xbox One seems to be stuck in UPS land but hopefully I will get mine soon! Launches are always so exciting, but they definitely change when you have a baby. There is no way I can stay up until midnight anymore. I’m asleep on the couch by 10pm most nights. Sadly this means that I will not get to start to use my Xbox One until after work the next day. How do you handle launch dates with your baby? Do you bring him/her to the event? Another interesting discussion my husband and I have been having around the Xbox One launch is where to put it! At this point we are out of HDMI slots so that means it will probably displace the Xbox 360. We’re still in the middle of playing

    How bug free do you expect your open world game to be?

    I know GTA V has made gobs of money already. A report I saw mentioned that it was the fastest selling form of entertainment making more than a billion dollars for developer Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive. When a game is that popular in terms of sales, I expect that mainstream media might mention it here and there. But queue my surprise when mention of a new bug found in the game was news on KFI am News Radio. I shook my head. Did I hear that correctly? Was mainstream media trying to discuss a bug found in the game? I found the report to be a bit clumsy with not enough information and no quote or mention from the company. Even NBC News is reporting on the bug. The bug itself is that cars are sometimes just vanishing. A slightly humorous bug given that most of GTA is

    Blizzard announced Diablo III: Reaper of Souls at GamesCom this week. “Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, vanished after the events depicted at the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction®. In Reaper of Souls, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime Evil. It now falls to the players to track down Malthael and stop him before he unleashes irreversible havoc on the world.” Diablo III: Reaper of Souls adds to the story but also increases the game’s level cap to 70.
