The hottest new video game to hit the market? Toy Story 3, a companion game to the newly released Pixar hit, which, 11 years after the original, still isn’t as ridic as a Sex in the City 2, but is getting dangerously close. My favorite character? Dr. Evil Porkshop. Though Game Hunters says “there is a fair amount of cartoon violence,” and though I have not, myself, tried the game, I can almost guarantee you won’t be having nightmares or worrying about the downfall of kids today. A few Buzz Lightyear lasers never hurt anyone.
Michael Jackson: The Experience – Video Game
In other gaming news, we couldn’t miss is the announcement (and the opportunity to serve you faithful fans, as promised) of a Michael Jackson video game set to launch around Christmastime. Ubisoft, makers of the popular JustDance, was approached by Jackson’s estate after his death, requesting their most intriguing pitch. With a design that lets players mimic the King of Pop‘s slickest moves, Ubisoft got the coveted contract and has been hard at work creating the software that’ll let you awkwardly attempt moonwalking in the comfort of your own home.
