Another year and another San Diego Comic-Con is here. And I am not there….
I will learn about everything through twitter and facebook but it is just not the same. I’d love to get the chance to meet some people and learn things firsthand. Things like what information I can learn about the upcoming LEGO DC Super-Villains game! There are many thing happening at San Diego Comic-Con surrounding this game. I’m excited about it because it centers around the villians of the DC universe. And for the first time you can become a character in the game. You can customize your very own super villain and that means everything from costume to powers! Check out this video explaining more about that and the game story itself!
We were given the download code for the new Scribblenauts Showdown game for the Nintendo Switch for free so that we could play and review the game. Opinions are 100% my own. That being said it was an instant hit with the whole family.
I love finding games that the whole family can play easily. Scribblenauts showdown is that game for our family. It allows 4 player gaming (glad I got the additional joycons) or single player, 3 player or even 2 player. There are a lot of options for this game and we tried them all. First I played with Andrew and he spent most of the time giggling like a silly goose. It is also great that he is now reading more and able to do some rudimentary spelling.
Then I played with both kids and it was laughter all around. They loved playing the sandbox mode. This is where you can interact with different stages by creating objects from the 35,000 words in the Scribblenauts expansive dictionary. This also includes adding funny adjectives to the objects that you interact with. We were playing in the Sandbox in a cave stage and I created a Tankbuster jet to fly around and that is ridiculous to have in a cave. I also added an adjective to a fire to make it a raging fire and suddenly it was moving around and setting everyone on fire.
After Sandbox we played the Showdown mode and the three of us competed against each other with two joycons. It is a great way to play so many games. The kids loved the “Speedy” mini-games, which pit players to race against the clock to finish. Check out the kids playing Medieval Mayhem, one of the mini games where you brawl with each other using conjured items. One time we were flinging crepes at each other.
