Bomb The Aliens
I remember when I first heard about this game back in November, I had an immediate "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, assuming its release would keep getting delayed much like the show's 6th season. But alas, Project Runway for Nintendo Wii finally hit shelves March 2nd, and its arrival wasn't quite as manically exciting as I thought it was going to be. I don't know if its fashionable target market is just too engrossed in shopping, actually making their own real designs, or just watching the show itself, but personally I think this game looks too cool to overlook. Much like the show, "designers" get challenges -- like create a rockstar's stage outfit or revamp a high school uniform, for example -- and then get to create looks using a multitude of colors, patterns, and "fabrics" to compete in the catwalk showdown. There's even a Wii Balance Board add-on feature that allows you to play as your model and strut your designs down the runway! While I'm still curious as to how your creations are "judged" by e-versions of our favorite members of the PR panel, I'm still intrigued enough to check it out myself! It sounds almost like a fashion-relevant version of the Sims... which means maximum addiction potential!Price: $39.99Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add Project Runway for Nintendo Wii to the Hive.
If you've ever wolfed down an entire pepperoni pie by yourself just for an excuse to hang out at the local pizzeria and beat those kids' scores on the ancient Galaga machine (okay, maybe that's just me), have I got the gadget for you! This super-retro Pac-Man joystick literally looks like it was jacked straight out of the arcade and modernized to fit conveniently on your lap or coffee table. Just pop in some batteries and plug the device into your TV and you instantly have a long night ahead of you in old school gamer girl heaven. With 12 classic arcade games in one compact console, you can officially save the trip to the pizza joint (and the calories that inevitably come with it) and you can geek out in the privacy and convenience of your own home (unless, of course, you want to invite the whole building over for a tournament).Price: $40Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Pac-Man Video Game Kit to the Hive.
