Ascending Butterfly's 2011 Holidays Buying Guide, Giveaway #7 brought to you by:

Teen Corner

I have a confession, I grew up watching wrestling. And get this, it wasn't my Dad who introduced me to wrestling (he died when I was way too young), it was  my MOM. We'd watch wrestling together faithfully, and yell at the TV screen often! We had our favorites as well as the 'bad' guy wrestlers we hated, and I remember totally having a school girl crush on Ricky The Dragon Steamboat!

I don't watch it now as often as I used to, but my crush on Ricky changed over to The Rock, and a few years ago I won local radio station tickets to go to Madison Square Garden and catch a Wrestling event there and my friends thought I had won the lottery! I felt like a kid again while at the Garden, I was yelling along and having a great time!

Earlier this Fall I attended a Holidays Preview event in New York City where I had the opportunity to preview Fall Video Game releases from Majesco Entertainment. They contacted me in advance of the event and asked me to forward along the info to other tri-state based bloggers, which I was super stoked about! The event felt like a happy East Coast Bloggers reunion of sorts! They had game areas set up where we had a chance to try out each game, talk to game designers, compete against one another, try great cocktails and pick on great appetizers to help keep up our energy while we tried out the games.

I enjoyed playing all the games, but one game honestly did stand out above the rest, yep you guessed it, it was a wrestling game. And not just any wrestling game. It was Hulk Hogan's Main Event! The ultimate wrestling 'good guy' (OK I do remember his brief walk on the wrestling 'dark side' but I choose to forget it!). I'm a New York city girl, a self confessed Tom Boy and a wrestling fanatic, this video game is SO me. I get to beat up a bad guy and let out my city stress and aggression in a decidedly healthy way!

I had a blast playing this game, I had trouble picking it up at first, to which every guy around the demo area (including the one teaching me the game) all yelled in unison 'Stop hitting like a girl!', and much like Hulk Hogan, who tends to come back strong toward the end of the match, I let it all go, all inhibitions flew out the window and I got the hang of it! I let the computer (and the doubters) have it! I can't wait to play this one with my older nephew! You best believe I am going to practice my butt off!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Multiple Gameplay Modes:

 My Take:

I am super lucky that my mom never defined activities by gender, and I got to try Karate, Horseback Riding and even Wrestling at an early age. Hulk Hogan's Main Event was my standout favorite from the Fall preview event, I'm probably biased because I am a wrestling fan, but I could definitely see non-wrestling fans enjoying the game as well.

The Tutorials are helpful, and playing the computer will help you hone your skills and get more advanced, but this game is so much more fun when you play with your friends! It will definitely have you all laughing in no time! The only other games that make me laugh as much for group play are the singing/Karoake games.

This game is ONLY available for the 360, which I hope changes, I hope it gets offered for the Wii as well!

Because this is a wrestling game (ie yes folks there is violence) it's rated T for teen! 

I can only hope someone from the great minds at Majesco develop a video game for The Rock! (Dwayne Johnson if you are reading this, I get a cut! And a signed copy. Hopefully personally delivered by you, OK I digress......)
