Holiday Gift Guide - Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle - Nintendo Switch



Two worlds collide in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle! 

The Mushroom Kingdom has been torn apart by a mysterious vortex, transporting the chaotic Rabbids into this once-peaceful land. To restore order, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi must team up with a whole new crew: four Rabbids heroes! Together, they will battle with weapons through four worlds filled with combat, puzzles, and unpredictable enemies.

Developed exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the best of the Mario and Rabbids franchises, combining all that you love about Mario’s iconic universe with the side-splitting antics of the Rabbids.



My Thoughts 

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle combines two classic games into one. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi join forces with four Rabbids. In this game, you must save the Mushroom Kingdom which is under attack from mysterious forces.   A vortex options up which brings the mischievous rabbids right to Mario's doorstep.  

To save their world, Mario and his friends must battle through four different worlds. You can choose from solo or co-op turn-based combat so you can play alone or with friends.  The team is armed with some wild weapons to use against a series of bosses. There are also puzzles and other challenges to solve along the way.





Mario and his friends have certainly come a long way since I played on the original Nintendo back in the 90s. I was especially exited to see the Princess getting some action of her own instead of waiting to be rescued. My children also really enjoyed this game. They found it challenging and exciting, but there are also moments of humor, as there always are when the Rabbids turn up.  You can only get this game for Nintendo Switch, so if you are thinking about getting the system, now would be a great time.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is rated E for everyone and is a fun and interactive game that your whole family will love. The graphics are great and really make you feel like you're part of the show.  Designed for kids ten and older, this game is sure to be hit, but it may be a little too challenging for anyone younger. If you'd like to grab a copy of this fun new game, you can find it in stores nationwide. You can also order a copy for your family on Amazon. They make a great stocking stuffer for  kids of all ages. 





Holiday Gift Guide - Steep for Xbox One




Ride the massive open world of the Alps, where the powder is always fresh and the run never ends. Defy and master the world's most epic mountains on skis, wingsuits, snowboards, and paragliders. Go solo or drop in side by side with other players. Record and share the most insane stunts ever captured. Dare your friends to try out your custom lines, then challenge the world to beat your best tricks and relive your most epic wipeouts. The mountain is yours to explore. So strap in, suit up, and drop in.


My Thoughts

Steep for Xbox One is an awesome experience for those who enjoy interactive sports games. There are a variety of snow sports you can choose from including skiing, snowboarding, wing-suiting, and paragliding.  There are several levels and many different challenges to choose from that get harder as you become more advanced.  You can choose between riding solo or joining in with other players. You can even create custom paths that you can share with your friends.

When you're playing this game, it's almost a 3D experience. You really feel like you are on the slopes. The wing-suiting is especially exciting because it makes you feel like you're flying. The background scenery is beautiful and makes you feel like you are really outside on the snow-capped mountains. It's just not a cold which is a definite bonus! It's all the fun with none of the frostbite! One of the features my son really likes is that you can capture your best stunts and share them on social media.



This is an amazing game with stellar graphics. My teenage son found the levels challenging and entertaining. It never snows here, but at least my kids can enjoy the virtual experience of snowboarding and other exciting snow sports thanks to Steep. It is definitely helping them to get in the holiday spirit.  You can grab a copy of this fun game for your family in stores nationwide or online on Amazon. It's the perfect stocking stuffer for teens.

Holiday Gift Guide - Assassin's Creed Origins - Xbox One



Ancient Egypt – home of colossal pyramids, gilded tombs, tyrannical god-kings, and the origin story of the Assassins. As Cleopatra’s empire crumbles, the birth of the Assassin's Brotherhood will lead to an extraordinary shift of the world order. Along your journey, the mysteries of Ancient Egypt will be revealed. Assassin’s Creed Origins uncovers the beginning of the Brotherhood. Fight in epic battles, master a completely reinvented combat system, and explore the entirety of Egypt. With the all-new quest system, complete missions in any order you choose, and follow your own path to greatness.



My Thoughts

I'll admit that the Assassin's Creed series hasn't been my personal favorite since they are a little violent. I didn't let my son play them until he reached junior high, but this one even held even my attention. I love Ancient Egypt, and this game really brings those scenes to life. In  Assassin's Creed Origins, you can get explore the tombs of the ancient Pharaohs. Along the way, there are mysteries to be solved, and discoveries to be made as you journey with the original assassin. You will fight enemies and even meet some of the ancient Egyptian deities.

One of the unique things about this game is that you can play the missions in any order.  This makes the experience unique for each person. You can also play alone or team up to play missions with your friends using Xbox Live. The possibilities are endless, and make this a game you can play over and over again.




My son loved playing this game. He found it challenging and interesting. It's a little too hard for me and my Nintendo hands to master, but I really enjoyed watching him play. The graphics are just beautiful. I love the different views of the pyramids and especially loved watching the gods come to life. Watching him play was like watching a movie, and I feel like it's actually teaching him a little about history.

The Assassin's Creed series has been one of my son's favorites. After waiting two years, he was excited to see what they would come up with next, and he was not disappointed. If you'd like to grab a copy of this fantastic game for yourself, it is available now in stores nationwide. You can also grab a copy on Amazon. It would make a great gift for any of the teens of your list.


Psychological Thriller The Fall: Complete Collection




THE FALL: Complete Collection debuts on DVD/Blu-ray on November 21, 2017 from Acorn, an RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand. This hit psychological thriller stars Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Gillian Anderson (Bleak HouseThe Crimson Petal and the WhiteThe X-Files) delivers a masterful performance as DSI Stella Gibson, a steely detective on the trail of a serial killer (Jamie DornanFifty Shades of Grey) stalking the streets of Belfast. THE FALL proves as riveting as it is unsettling, granting rare insight into the mind of a sociopath. The DVD and Blu-ray 6-Disc set features all three series, 18 hours of vivid characterizations and heart-pounding storytelling with behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and photo galleries ($69.99, Amazon.com). Also on Nov. 21, THE FALL, Series 3 will be available in an individual season DVD/Blu-ray sets ($39.99 each).

The culprit is Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan), a grief counselor and family man driven by vicious compulsions. As Gibson closes in on Spector, both the hunter and the hunted outmaneuver each other in a sinister game of cat and mouse. Will Gibson make Spector pay for his crimes before the death toll rises?

An “intelligent show with tremendous acting” (The Atlantic), critics rave that “Anderson is sublime, almost otherworldly, while Dornan…matches her for icy charisma” (Daily Mail). This complete collection of the award-winning drama also stars Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), John Lynch (In the Name of the Father), and Colin Morgan (Merlin, Humans).

My Thoughts

I was a huge fan of Gillian Anderson when she was on X-files so I was excited to see her on the small screen again. The Fall was not disappointing. The Fall is psychological thriller ripe with intrigue that ran for three seasons. Anderson plays a female detective in London's Metropolitan Police Service who visits Belfast to assist with a murder case. A woman in a man's world, she dives into the gruesome murder investigations with gusto and has no qualms about getting her hands dirty as she hunts down a serial killer.  

One interesting aspect of this series is that its not just about the police looking or the killer. The scenes are divided pretty evenly between the detective and the murderer, giving you a disturbing look inside a deranged mind. Jamie Dornon does an outstanding job of bringing his vile character to life in true Hannibal Lector style.  He's a killer by night and a mild mannered counselor with a family by day.  Its chilling watching him go from a nice family man to a cold-blooded killer.  In fact, there are a lot of comparisons between this series and Silence of the Lambs, including the connection between the cop and the serial killer. Throughout the series, the detective is striving to outwit the killer before he takes another victim. While it isn't particularly past-faced, what it lacks in action it makes up for in tenseness.  This sometimes gruesome series is a must watch for lovers or crime drama and thrillers alike.  


The DVD set includes all seventeen episodes that takes you through the entire case.  If you'd like to grab a copy of this exciting DVD set for yourself, you can find it online at Acorn Media or on Amazon.
