Rainy Day Fun: Video Games

When I’m not blogging here on ColumbiaCountyCurrent.com, I’m probably playing a video game. Each week, I try to find the best video games for families to play together and I review those games for TimeToPlaymag.com.

Here is one of my recent video reviews:

I’ll add links to my reviews as they are published but in the meantime, you can check out more of my video game reviews for TimeToPlaymag.com by clicking here.

Kylie Minogue Inspired Kinect for Xbox

Check out this Kylie Minogue inspired Kinect.

This Swarovski crystal-studded Kinect was designed by PlayBling in conjunction with Kylie Minogue’s European tour, which started last month. The Kylie Kinect is valued at $1,242 and although you can’t buy one, you can win one by submitting a video of yourself dancing to Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” in the game Dance Central.

I’m still not entirely sure how you submit your video or if this is contest is even open for non-European countries. What I do know, is that I’ll be rehearsing with Dance Central in anticipation of a similar US contest when Kylie’s tour arrives on our shores later this spring.

Beacon NY, A Footloose Town for Arcades

Beacon, NY in Dutchess County recently shut down the Retro Arcade Museum because it had  pinball machines on the premises. Apparently pinball machines were outlawed back in the middle of the 20th century because law-makers thought pinball arcades were fronts for mob operations.

The current town council is trying to change these antiquated laws to allow the arcade to reopen.
