It's March Break this week and naturally, the kids have spent a lot of their free time playing games. Believe it or not, playing by yourself can get a bit boring so this evening the entire family joined together to play Kirby's Return to Dreamland. The boy got to play Kirby and the rest of us took our usual supporting characters. The girl was Waddle Dee. I was Metaknight and hubby was King Deedeedee. We had borrowed enough Wiimotes so that we could all play simultaneously. My son adores playing this in a group because he can be the superstar and we follow him around getting the odd shot in against enemies. We can't take his power-ups - we are mostly just comic side-kicks, which suits him just fine. The kids love their father's impersonation of King Deedeedee, based on the 1980s cartoon we viewed on YouTube. Part of the fun of playing is hearing their dad utter phrases like "Helllllp meee" and "I'm feeling magnamenous today".
Only the female members of the household played Just Dance 3 because the boys only wanted "manly" songs like "Bad to the Bone" and "The Wanderer" - it's a family joke that these are hubby's theme songs. We sweated a lot and the girl knew most of the songs we used. It was a lot of fun to play together.
