"The Adventures of Tintin" and "Just Dance 3" Are This Week's New Video Game Releases
"The Adventures of Tintin: The Game" (E10+) . . . for Xbox, PS3, Wii, PC and DS. In the classic comics, Tintin was a young Belgian reporter who investigated mysteries with the help of his dog Snowy and his best friend, Captain Haddock. The comic was hugely popular in Europe and even ran as an animated TV series in the '60s and '90s. This game is based on the new movie adaptation directed by Steven Spielberg which hits theaters a few days before Christmas. The game supports the motion technology of the Kinect sensor and the Playstation Move. It also features two player co-op.
"Just Dance 3" (E10+) is out this week for Xbox, PS3, and Wii. It includes a new four-player mode with choreography for four people. The track list includes Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous", Cee Lo's "Forget You", and three Katy Perry songs, for a total of 51 dance routines.
