Just Dance 2022 – Launching Today

Posted in Commentary with tags on November 4, 2021 by itnerd

History has shown time and time again that nothing brings people together like dance. Unfortunately, our dance moves may have gotten a little rusty over the past year or two. It’s time to turn up the volume and break free with the return of Just Dance 2022!

This year’s version is accessible to any level of dance through several different modes. Team up with friends in Co-op Mode or get your heart rate up in Sweat Mode. Brush up on your dance moves casually or get a little competitive, the game is yours.

Featuring partner artist, Camilla Cabello, and in-game content from Taylor Swift, this year’s iteration of the popular game includes new hits and old classics. From Ciara’s “Level Up” to Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”, dancers can sharpen their moves and share in the groove with friends and family.

Just Dance 2022 is available for $59.99 on November 4, just in time for holiday celebrations! The game is available on Nintendo Switch and other platforms, and can be purchased at major Canadian retailers including Walmart Canada.

Players can game solo, with friends or with 50+ competitors across a range sports from skiing to snowboarding, cycling to wingsuits.

The competitive and chaotic outdoor sport multimedia playground lets players soak up the fun of the adrenaline boosting competition with friends.

Riders Republic should be at the top of the must-have list for any gamer seeking adventure and competition in an extreme sports environment with the option to compete PVP, Coop, local MP and solo. 

Mindless fun and sensation is the name of the game on October 28. Riders Republic will retail for $70.99.

Posted in Commentary with tags on January 7, 2021 by itnerd

The days are still short and the cold weather isn’t helping, so let’s take our minds off blues by beating down the blues in Immortals Fenyx Rising and Watch Dogs: Legion!

The mythological game of the winter will transport you to the Golden Isle, where you will be tasked with saving Zeus and the rest of the Gods from the Typhon, a grisly monster who has been released from the underworld and wants to take vengeance. He and his squad of evil beings will meet you at every turn to try and keep you blue, but you have what it takes to ensure that you and the Gods succeed in ensuring the world does not capitulate into evil.

If you want to stay a little closer to home, Watch Dogs: Legion is for you! With online co-operative play available early this year, not only will you be able to create your own resistance to take back London with every and any person in the game, you’ll be able to do it with your friends. Everyone has a unique set of skills and abilities, from the innocent granny on the sidewalk, to the construction worker and the badass militants with big scary weapons.

Both games are now available on all next-gen consoles, as well as the Switch, PS4 and Xbox One, on the Ubisoft Store for Windows PC!
