I picked up blastworks today as well, it got a decent review in Game Informer, and it's certainly different, although not great, it's a decent fun sideway shooter with coop support, and it has a level editor with the ability to build your own ships using basic tools, which appealed to my 10 year old, who plays alot of the free pc games with similar themes.
Although to be honest Geometry Wars is the must have space shooter for wii. And on the same note, the williams pinball game is a huge hit with adults and kids. I think it the board shaking element which is appealling as it's so easily done using the controller.
So IO hows your Lego Indiana Jones going, It's good family fun just like the starwars version (although the characters are not so diverse)?
Yeah, my boys are playing it coop right now. I wish Blockbuster would stock Geometry Wars - I'd snag that with BB credit in a heartbeat. We're done with Lego Indiana Jones - 2 free rentals from Hollywood. I got 100% (and 1000/1000 achievements) and the boys beat it to varying degrees. It was time to move on .
I got some strange pricing on Wii games I attempted to buy today...
Meet the Robinsons
Sonic and the Secret Rings
All rang up $16.99 not $9.99/14.99 =(
. This is a very good indication that a Buy 1 Get 1 free on $14.99 and under games is coming this week! Wow... I guess I should have held off a bit more. Oh well, depending on how many games they hose up for it (ie, make $16.99) there ought to be plenty out there to get. And once again I'm back to wondering if I can get price adjustments on my previous purchases (FWIW - I expect that to be very difficult if not impossible).
