This Week's New Video Games

Halo 3:ODST (Xbox360. rated Mature)

This isn't a typical Toy Guy game pick but we know it's going to be a huge hit and parents might want to know what it is. Halo 3: ODST is a new, stand-alone expansion to the Halo series that lets players experience the events leading up to the story told in Halo 3 through the eyes of an entirely new character the ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper). The game is rated Mature because of the violence, language, blood and general gore. This is definitely not a game for kids, however, older male teens and adults will love it.

Katamari Forever (PS3. rated Everyone)
This is the first Katamari game for the PS3 and retains the light-hearted, slightly bizarr play-pattern of the other Katamari games. Players will take on a character and roll through levels picking up everything they roll into creating a constantly growing ball of stuff. That stuff can include anything from thumb tacks to ocean liners.

Scooby-Doo! First Frights (DS, PS2, Wii. rated Everyone 10+)
Play through one of Mystery Inc's first mysteries in this new Scooby-Doo! game. Players can play as all five of the main characters--Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Fred and Daphne--in this comic, mystery adventure game. The game is rated Everyone 10+ but kids as young as five will enjoy playing this game with a little help from a grownup.

Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey (DS, PC, Wii. rated Everyone)
Where’s Waldo?: The Fantastic Journey video game brings Martin Handford’s classic book to life in a spectacular new way, allowing kids to discover this popular fanchise as an original interactive adventure for the whole family. Search for the one and only Waldo and his cast of friends.
