Hey, gamer girls! You know I’m a fan of Call of Duty, and I’m looking forward to the next installment of Black Ops, due out on November 13, 2012. Today, the trailer for Black Ops 2 was released!

It shows a conflict in the year 2025, with some future vehicles, weapons, and gadgets. The narrative alludes to a plot where our enemies have taken control of the technology and machines that were developed to keep us safe. That’s where the elite humans of Black Ops take over. Watch the trailer and let me know what you think!

GeekMom Reviews: Plush Pets Integrate With Xbox Kinectimals Game

It’s nice to have a soft, fuzzy, huggable toy to go along with the virtual pet in the game. I think any child who enjoys playing Kinectimals will be thrilled to receive a new Plush Pal to squeeze in person, and to unlock within the game as well.

Back in December, my family received an Xbox 360 Kinect system. One of my daughter’s favorite games is Kinectimals, which lets her play with and care for a virtual animal.

Recently, we received an addition to our Kinectimals virtual pet family. A White Tiger cub, which my daughter (6 years old) named “Stripey,” is a cute little plush toy, complete with whiskers. She was so excited when she unwrapped Stripey! When I told her we could scan Stripey’s nametag with the Kinect sensor, she could hardly wait to see what would happen.

We fired up the Xbox and started the Kinectimals game. She navigated right to the scan rock and after a couple of her wiggly tries, I scanned the tiger’s tag for her. The game recognized the code and *poof* unlocked a virtual white tiger for her! Another Stripey! She was thrilled!

The Plush Pals are a fun addition to the Kinectimals game. It’s nice to have a soft, fuzzy, huggable toy to go along with the virtual pet in the game. I think any child who enjoys playing Kinectimals will be thrilled to receive a new Plush Pal to squeeze in person, and to unlock within the game as well. There are five new Kinectimals plush pals, available at Toys “R” Us and Target for $11.99. New animals, including the Canadian Lynx and Jaguarundi, will be released later this year.

The animals are small enough to fit into an Easter basket, and won’t melt in kids’ hands, get smeared into carpet, or cause a sugar-high frenzied rampage. Cheers! 🙂

Disclosure: I received 2 plush pals to review for this article.
