The Grounded Godmother may look a little freaky (A tutu? eww... ) but the dude gets a big thumbs up from Gary thanks to the Konami Live! Online Game Controller. These cool new toys look like controllers for a PS2 or Xbox, but you plug 'em into your computer and they hook you up with online games. You need a USB port and 128MB RAM to make 'em work, but any computer that doesn't come from the stone age should be fine. Here's the 411 on both controllers with Gary's game review!

Konami Live! Online Game Controller - Arcade

The first game controller you should grab is the Arcade one. It has five games, plus an upcoming bonus game, packed into it. They're quick downloads and most have a two-player mode so you and a friend can take turns beating each other's high score! Here's the 411 on the games.

  • Contra - Fight off an alien invasion as a military commando!
  • Gyruss - Blast enemies and grab power-ups as you warp through the galaxy.
  • Scramble - Pilot your spaceship as you blast bad guys and dodge deadly terrain.
  • Time Pilot - Fly through history blowing up enemy aircraft.
  • Yie Ar Kung Fu - Test your skills against ancient martial arts masters.

You can also boost Scramble and Time Pilot with Enhanced Mode but only if you have a fast computer, otherwise it'll slow the games down.

Konami Arcade Collection Thumbs Up:

  • Plug it into your friend's computer and play!
  • Better controls than with a keyboard.
  • Five different games!
  • Two-player modes to challenge your friends.

Konami Arcade Collection Thumbs Down:

  • Enhanced mode can slow down old computers.
  • No online High Score comparison.

Konami Arcade Collection Game Rating:

Konami Live! Online Game Controller - Frogger

The Frogger controller lets you load Frogger Ancient Shadow onto your computer and save the Firefly Swamp. It's only one game, but it has way more action and adventure than any single game on the arcade controller! The biggest bummer is that you can't take your saved games with you if you plug it into your friend's computer.

Konami Frogger Thumbs Up:

  • More game options than the arcade games.
  • Plug it into any computer and play.

Konami Frogger Thumbs Down:

  • You can't take your saved games to another computer!

How Cool is the Grounded Godmother?

  • Very cool - he has awesome video games!
  • Even with the tutu he's pretty cool.
  • Cooler than my uncle who always buys me presents.
  • He'd be cooler if he brought pizza too.

Sims 4 is hella fun. If you've played 3 before, it will seem like a let down (They took a bunch out). The graphics are good, The Sims are funny. I say get it.
