Kinect and Beyond

Everyone received various DVD's this Christmas and we have been watching them over the last few days. Toy Story 3 being a popular choice, the story continues the adventures of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of Andy's toys. We were really moved at various parts of this amazing sequel, especially the final scenes which brought us to tears and I was left wanting my own Spanish mode! This was one of only a few movies that had me watching all of the bonus material and additional footage. The trilogy is an absolute masterpiece!

On a similar populist note, Xbox Kinect has also proved to be popular and the children - of all ages - have participated in the action! I'm hoping this won't be another present that the children take home, that will either disappear or gather dust! From their reaction to the add-on that seems unlikely which is good news. We have played an excessive amount, especially today at my brothers which was enjoyable. Mario Kart was introduced and remains a firm favourite, my son actually had some competition for once! Although he let himself down at times with his rants and outbursts when not finishing in first place. At least with the children's renewed interest in the Xbox platform, the console potentially opens up another method of communication from university!
