I was looking for GUITAR HERO III for the XBox 360 for the kids for Christmas...I couldn't find that, but I was in Target, and they had one ROCK BAND SPECIAL EDITION for the 360. (If you highlight the blank area, you can read what I found. Tess never reads my blog, but given my luck lately -- can anyone say uber crappy? -- I am taking no chances.)
If you don't know (and this is a highlight area again) this is a video game with a drum controller, and a guitar controller, and a microphone. Tess loves the drums. So I decided this would be fun for her, at least, even if the boys didn't like it.
The boys and Tess have been talking about GUITAR HERO III, but nobody has really mentioned ROCK BAND SPECIAL EDITION . So I wasn't sure if it was a crappy game, or at least not as good as GUITAR HERO III , but I figured I could buy it (because there was only one there, and Zach's school frowns on me calling him for things they consider insignificant, like video games...crazy people.) and return it if the boys had heard it was crap.
Turns out, it is the greatest thing ever. The boys are really excited for Tess, and want to open it now to make sure it works before Christmas Eve. Altruistic lot that they are...
Zach also immediately started telling his friends, to make them jealous.
I am the best mom EVAH!
