Kinectimals, Just Dance 2 and My First Songs – yes, it was a family friendly gaming weekend for me. Ok, I did get some action in the splendid RPG Divinity 2: Dragon Knight Saga on 360 but most of my time was spent on family-friendly games. Just Dance 2 is – as most of you probably know – the sequel to the smash hit original Wii dance game. Compared to some of the similar titles on Kinect it feels basic but JD2 is accessible and rewarding even to the youngest dancers.
Similarly aimed at *very* young gamers is My First Songs – otherwise known as Singstar Nursery Rhymes for the Wii. Those of you with young children are probably the only people still reading this but honestly, My First Songs comes well recommended. It comes packaged with one microphone – prepare for some arguments if you have two or more kids – and is a colourful and accessible kids karaoke. Ok, there are only 20 or so songs (think Old Macdonald, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star etc) but your average four or five year old will enjoy this. Parents will need stamina once they have heard Hickory Dickory Dock for the tenth time on Christmas morning though.
Anyway, what about you? How was your gaming weekend?
