Merry Christmas from all the Family_Furie

Merry Christmas

All the best wishes from everyone in the Family_Furie. I hope to see you all in the new year, and be prepared for a flurry of new toy and game reviews once the (ahem) kids have finished testing them out.

So all the best for the holidays everyone!

Let the eggman help protect your kids on the PS3 this Christmas

Did you know there is a website dedicated to helping you protect your kids while they use the PS3?

Did you know it’s a colourful (if a little bizarre) eggman who does it?

I thought not, but it’s true 🙂

Lots of really useful tips for adding security, parental controls, Trend Micro’s PS3 browser security and controls, etc, etc, etc.

An absolute must read if you have a PS3 and children who use it.

Head over to watch the bizarre eggman here:

Rabbit Tragedy

Sadly, last night, I discovered that out two bunnies – Hermy and Izzy – had been attacked by a fox. It’s always upsetting when a pet dies, but particularly so when it’s so sudden and two of them.

Both rabbits were full of character and lived a happy life. The garden shed (undermined by their burrowing) will certainly never recover.

So it’s farewell to the last of the Lop-eared Lagomorphs of Lucifer, or “the evils” as they became known (for their evil and nefarious ways).

Sony EyePet“You’re left wondering if you need to flap around on the floor like a dead fish”

Sony’s EyePet – virtually a good review.

In October, Sony released their attempt at capturing the Nintendogs market share for the PS3. Their plan? Make the pet actually live in your home.

Invizimals

Invizimals

 

Invizimals“Seeing an Invizimal appear for the first time on the kitchen table is quite magical.”

Review of Invizimals: one of the first “augmented reality” games released.

Invizimals is a new twist on the classic creature “collect and fight” genre. Essentially it’s the Sony version of Pokémon, but with a twist.
