The new crop of console video games is coming out.
This time, they’re not necessarily an excuse to just sit around.
Several of the new entries - Just Dance 4 or Fable: The Journey - require players to jump about to get the motion going. If you do choose a game where you can just sit, there are at least beautiful settings to take your mind off the winter weather outside.
The Wii U, successor to the Wii, comes out at the end of November.
However, so far, it remains difficult to find games for it.
One that has made its way to shelves is Just Dance 4, from Ubisoft, offering 47 songs by various artists for players just waiting to show off their dance moves. Titles include: Moves Like Jagger from Maroon 5; Maneater by Nelly Furtado; and So What by Pink.
The game comes with a variety of modes, several for multiple players. One new addition is Battle mode, where two players get to face off and show the world who has the better moves. Dance Crew mode allows up to four players to dance together.
