When I was invited to review flarePlay
, I did it all for my 7 year old Duke. Everything about it sounded awesome. No consoles. No disks. 100+ games on demand streamed right to the tv. SOLD! The worst thing here are scratched and lost disks. I want to rage every time one of the kids scratching up a disk. Not even a crazy big scratch either, teeny tiny ones get them all the time. It's not like back in my days where you just blew into the game and it was good to go. I tried everything, even banana peel to seal a scratch and nope. $50 on a game just gone. Wah! Lost games are even worse. At least with scratched disks you know that it was loved and played till the very end but lost games are just lost like.. socks. No explanation, no closure. Wah!
I really didn't expect it to be fun for the whole family. I had my husband Chris set up the microconsole behind our tv, it barely took up any space and took him less than 2 minutes. I set it up on our tv and we were oohing and ahhing over game choices. The boys were totally excited for LEGO Batman (scratched the disk and then lost it) and LEGO Harry Potter. I was excited for Assassins Creed 2 (mainly for our 14 year old Damien that always lugs his game console over when we have him for the weekend) and Antique Road Trip!
