    Why is co-op an after thought in Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

    I have been waiting anxiously for Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare since the launch of the Xbox One. There were a couple of delays, but yesterday I ran to the Local GameStop to get my reserved copy. At this point our Xbox One has only been used to feed the cable through and play Assassins’s Creed and the Titanfall beta. I was anxious for a game that my husband and I can play together. Ever since having pumpkin my playing time has been almost non-existent. It’s incredibly difficult to find time to play. Naps are for errands, cleaning or job hunting and when she goes down at night we have two hours to eat dinner and watch tv before I go down too. Last night we chose to take those precious two hours and play Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. The installation took some time, so we watched Castle. Then

    Microsoft announces Xbox One

    Today Microsoft announced the Xbox One. The newest console for home entertainment. I say home entertainment because at least from the talk today, this console is definitely more integrated into all things home entertainment than before. Microsoft took the opportunity to talk about the console, controller and Kinect system in terms of specs. We also saw a glimpse at the larger entertainment features such as integration with live television programming and skype. Not much time was spent on games at this announcement. Figure they are keeping that for E3 in a few weeks. Infinity Ward did announce Call of Duty Ghosts at the event. Here is a trailer: And here is the Behind the Scenes on the game: We learned that EA is launching EA Sports Ignite on the Xbox One. Ignite is a new engine that has human-like intelligence for advanced decision making, as well agility to react like

    UFC is live on the Xbox Dashboard

    I was pretty bummed when my Xbox Dashboard updated and the UFC tab had the old fight on it. Then reports came out that UFC application would not be updated until December 20th in time for the UFC 141. Even UFC posted about it! This may be only available to certain users, but I was able to get the UFC application working and found that it’s updated with all the latest fight information! Amazing videos about all the fighters in UFC 140. You can make your picks as well as see who your friends picked to win. Basically it’s my husband and I fighting to see if Mir or Nog is going to win this Saturday. Voting is easy and you get a plethora of information on the fighters. Not only the Tale of the Tape that shows all the measurements/age/history of the fighter, but also the last three fights
