This Week's New Video Games

This week, two new games arrive in stores and we are very excited about both of them. The first is the latest Guitar Hero game, which will have everyone rocking out and second, one of the most imaginative, kid-friendly games we have seen yet, Mini Ninjas is in stores tomorrow.

Guitar Hero 5 (PS2, PS3, Xbox360, Wii, rated Teen)
The insanely successful rock video game is back with more of today's most popular artists and classic rock legends including Tom Petty, Kings of Leon, The White Stripes, Santana, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. The game disc includes 85 master tracks for players to rock out on plus downloadable content and, for the first time ever, players can customize the make-up of their band by rocking with any combination of instruments in-game: whether it be two guitars and two drums, or three guitars and a microphone, any combination is possible, allowing players to experience music their own way.

Mini Ninjas (PC, PS3, Xbox360, Wii, rated Everyone 10+)
A single player action/adventure game, Mini Ninjas puts a new spin on the video game favorite, ninja action genre. A kid-friendly game featuring no killing and an engrossing storyline, which players explore via six playable ninja characters, players take on the role of Hiro and the fellow members of his improbable ninja clan as they face an ancient evil that has returned to impose itself on the world. Each ninja utilizes authentic ninja weapons and moves, and possesses his/her own individual skill set, including mysterious "kuji magic" abilities.
