Get Invaded With Centipede Infestation – Review

Games make the perfect holiday gift for that kid or gamer on your list and you may want to give them the new video game from Atari, Centipede Infestation for the Wii or Nintendo 3DS.

From what I can see it is a basic but still very cool and fun run and gun type of game where you need to shoot many different bugs that come at you from all different directions.

Help Max defend Maisy, whose gardens bring life back to the wasteland. Squash giant mutated centipedes, spiders, beetles, scorpions, hornets and more. Lay waste to these mutated bugs with weapons such as the Lightning Gun, Freezethrower, Missile Launcher, and more. Use bodies of dead bugs to craft new defenses and power-ups like turret guns and barricades, or just crush them with your mighty stomp!

Here are some additional product features of the game:

  •  Reimagined version of the classic gaming franchise designed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS
  • Explore an expansive new world with 7 environments, 40 stages and 5 boss battles
  • Choose from over 20 different weapons and 12 power-ups to battle against 13 different types of bugs
  • Team up with a friend to kill even more bugs with 2 player co-op multiplayer
  • Unique Nintendo 3DS StreetPass and SpotPass functionality built into the game for content sharing

Centipede Infestation is right up Shaun’s alley as he likes the shoot em up type of games and this game is rated E for Everyone so I am comfortable with him playing this game.  This games retails for $29.99 at most major retails so if you are out looking for a present for the gamer be sure to check out Centipede Infestation.

Learn To Play Guitar With Power Gig : Rise of the SixString

To me playing the guitar would be so freaking awesome and the closest I am able to come is by playing Power Gig : Rise of the SixString.

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString  is the first game to feature a real electric guitar controller and teaches the fundamental skills of guitar playing in the process.  All of its controllers are compatible with Rock Band & Guitar Hero games and peripherals . Go to for more information.

Right out of the box you get that real guitar feel which is pretty cool in my opinion.  The one thing I really like about this game is the song selection.  I really like that the games features three exclusive artists : Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews Band and Kid Rock.  One of my favorite bands on this game is Disturbed.  LOL, if it wasn’t for this game when else would I have the opportunity to play a Disturbed song.

In a marketplace of violent video games, rest assured that Power Gig’s world of Ohm is a peaceful zone. The ESRB gave the game a T (Teen) rating, listing mild lyrics and mild suggestive themes.  You can buy everything you need in one box! The band kit comes with the game and the SixString guitar controller so you can start playing right away.

Power Gig is available at major retailers like Walmart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop, ToysRUs, BJ’s, QVC, and Amazon.  If you have a gamer on your list who is interested in the guitar be sure to pick this game up.
