Nintendo Favorites

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 8, 2009

I was never a fan of video games, growing up. In fact, I never thought we would own a gaming system, let alone three. The Wii, DS, and DSi are great family-friendly systems, each with it’s own unique draw. I am happy to share our favorite games with you now, and can recommend each as a great gift idea for the game-lover.


Now that you’ve had a chance to peruse through our game library, I would like to offer you a chance to win a few of our favorites, courtesy of the creators of each game.

Here are the games up for grabs (all shown above)::

Pajama Party, Wii
Astro Boy, Wii
Secret Saturdays, Wii
Ben 10 Alien Force, Wii
Dragonology, DS (includes Dragonology companion booklet)

Here’s what you must do to enter:
.

  • Leave me a comment, by 9pm (pst) on December 15th, telling me which game you would like to win and why. You may leave up to five comments – one for each game, but you MUST make sure you check out each game, so you know exactly why you’d like to win it.

For additional entries, daily, you may:

  • Link to this giveaway on your blog and/or Facebook wall. Be sure you leave me a separate comment for each link.
  • Tweet about this giveaway and include a link, using the hashtag #D2Dgvwy, as many times as you like before next Tuesday night, and leave me a separate comment for each tweet.

FIVE winners will be selected at random, each to receive the game of their choice. Winners will be emailed and will then have 24 hours to respond before forfeiting their prize.

I would like Pajama party!

Pajama Party would be great because each girl can customize their own character with their own facial features, clothes, and accessories. Then, each of the girls at the party get to use their characters while playing all kinds of normal slumber party games! It’s great!

Astro Boy would be great for the whole family. The kids would love it since he uses a laser and there is a lot of action. The adults can play too though since it can be challenging and there are hidden upgrades to find. Nice!

Secret Saturdays would be fun because you get to choose from a lot of different characters, there are several very differing levels, and you fight characters from the show!

Reply

Erica C. December 14, 2009 at 8:00 pm

The kids would really like Ben 10 because they already love the show. They’ll get to be several characters and use tons of different powers. All of this in a 3D world will keep them entertained.

Dragonology is my personal favorite of the 5 you are giving away. You get to explore and solve puzzles to take care of dinosaurs. You complete a lot of different mini games, and the end result is to ensure the survival of dragons. Great idea!

Pajama party would be perfect for my SIL, she’s 13. This game would def interest her.

I would choose Ben 10 Alien Force. My son likes the thought of adventure into outer space and to new alien home planets. I think he would like it too because it follows along with the TV program.
