Seeing as we are a family of four, we love that there is four player couch co-op in Rayman Legends for the Nintendo Switch! This is one of the few games we can all play together without taking turns. Our girls are young, but boy do they love it. We have had some real fun with the 100+ maps that are in this game. That means hours and hours of fun.
The holidays have just ended and you may have received (or given) a PlayStation 4 as a gift. I have had one for a couple of years now and have a decent collection of video games. That being said, over the holiday break, I just started playing Fortnite Battle Royale. It has quickly become very addictive as I have already spent several hours playing it – and forsee many more in my future. Fortnite is easily my current favorite video game right now (second to Call of Duty WWII and Super Mario Odyssey). I believe it is also available on XBOX and PC.
The Nintendo Switch is the perfect holiday gift for the whole family – and GameStop has them in stock! If you have been looking at every store, have no fear – GameStop currently has both the gray and neon (blue and red) Switch consoles. But inventory is going FAST, so get one while you still can! Trust me, we spent months looking for the Switch when it first came out, don’t find yourself waiting like we had to. Make the whole family happy by placing one under the tree this year.
As you know, I am a big gamer. But I don’t limit myself to video games. I love playing board games as well. Especially with my family and friends. I am an uber geek, and there are so many board games that are themed for my favorite geek shows and games! Here are 10 of my favorites that I think EVERY geek should play – at least once!

Why the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gaming Headset Makes the Perfect Holiday Gift for Gamers | #TurtleBeach
Something you probably know about me is that I am a gamer. I have been playing video games for over 25 years and am totally blown away by the progress and technological advances that have been made. I enjoy all types of games, but some of my favorites are shooters and RPGs. In order to fully experience these, I have always wanted to get a really good gaming headset. Thanks to Best Buy and Turtle Beach, I now have an incredible set – the Stealth 700 for PS4 Pro & PS4!
One game that I have been looking forward to since it was announced is Super Mario Odyssey. Knowing that it was coming out was one of the deciding factors on us getting the Nintendo Switch when we did. From the early trailers for this game, we could tell it would be fun for the whole family and an instant hit – and we were right! The game play and use of controllers is phenomenal – not to mention the story line. This game quickly became one of our favorites and I highly recommend it for any Nintendo fan!
10 Pokemon Items You NEED From GameStop & ThinkGeek’s Brand New EXCLUSIVE Pokemon Center! | #Pokemon #GameStop
The Smiths are a family of Pokemon fanatics! My husband and I have been playing the video games since we were young kids, and now we are getting our girls started on them as well. At least once a week, we play the Pokemon Trading Card game as a family, and we are constantly battling each other in Sun and Moon on our Nintendo DSes. Because we are such huge fans, we were THRILLED to learn that GameStop and ThinkGeek are launching an exclusive Pokemon Center at their store locations and online!
I have been a fan of South Park for years and years. I was a young teenager when I started watching it and it is kind of something I grew up watching. I remember when the movie came out and my friends and I went to see it in theaters – ten times! I don’t watch it religiously anymore, but I will watch an episode here and there. I enjoyed the first UbiSoft South Park game, The Stick of Truth, so I was really excited to receive a copy of The Fractured But Whole.
It is no secret that the Smith family is a family of gamers. Yes, we are a busy bunch with lots of extracurricular activities like basketball and volunteering – but we always make time for gaming. Something you may not know about my daughters is that this is their third and fourth year of dance classes. It is something they look forward to every year. So when they can combine their passion for dance, and their love of video games, they are two happy girls. That is where Just Dance 2018 comes in.
