Yesterday we went to check out the new world first exhibition at the museum - Game On 2.0. It just opened up last weekend and the boys had been begging us ever since to take them.
It has over 120 playable electronic games and tracks video games from the earliest computer games to the arcade era to the games we have today including the Wii etc.
Aaron and I had a go in the virtusphere where you can be a part of the game as it's 3D and also allows you to walk etc in it as you play the game, but we were both disappointed in it, but it was still good to try. It looked a lot more impressive than it actually was. Luckily we got there as soon as it opened and only had a 10 minute wait to try it. Others were told to come back in 45 mins to have a turn.
Everytime Kobe would spot a Wii game he would run and grab the controllers and want to play it - funny since that is what we have at home and he can play it any day he likes!
He also didn't mind a bit of car racing with Dad.
and he was also keen on Donkey Kong which Aaron wanted to take home with us :)
We ran into Lara Croft and was amazed as to how much I looked like her! ;)
Jay, Harri and Aaron loved it and could've stayed for hours and hours, but Kobe and I were over it after an hour or so. Kobe kept wanting to go out to the Phenomena Factory, so we ended up going out there together and having some fun.
The boys are already begging to go back, so I told them Aaron can take them back again once before it closes down. It seems quite expensive to get into, but really you get your moneys worth if you love gaming as you can play on any game you want, all day long for the cost to get in. I was really glad we went early as it wasn't too busy but was starting to get busy when we left at lunch time. the boys were begging me to take them back there yesterday afternoon before it shut as we could go back as much as we wanted in the one day.
Next time I think Kobe and I will stay home though - I thought it was good but gaming just isn't my thing.
