Looking for a last minute gift for the gamer on your list?

There is one game on the market right now ready for your last minute shopping list that I can tell you hands down that if you have a dad or guy to buy for on your Christmas list, he will scream like a little girl when he unwraps it! What game is this you ask? Well that's simple : Call of Duty World at War. I need to warn you though Call of Duty is for adults only. Meaning it does feature violence, blood and guts, and other adult contact that is just not suitable for children.

Call of Duty World at War like the other Call of Duty games is quite possibly the most realistic shooting game you can buy. I've watched the boys (aka my adult male friends) play it several times and I am just blown away at just how graphically advanced it is. Every detail is accounted for from the hairs on the players heads to the details on the vehicles and weapons. If your looking for a game that will really take advantage of all of the graphical capabilities of your game system this is most certainly the game for you, with that said I didn't notice any lag while playing this on the WII or the PS3 though just from the capabilities of each system the picture is better on the PS3 version, not that's of any fault to the Wii the PS3 just has a far better video card.

Call of Duty World at War is fast paced, and tons of fun on single player mode but really the beauty of this game is and always will be the mutliplayer functions as no Call of Duty is complete without spending hours and hours shooting your buddies in the head. Call of Duty is not for the casual gamer. Its an absolutely gorgeous game, but the game play is brutal from watching people getting tortured to hearing the characters scream when you shoot them while they are spurting blood. Set people on fire with your flame shooter, stab them if they get too close, or practice your sniper shots. Again people this is not the game for kids but dad's everywhere are already foaming at the mouth.

Call of Duty World at War is available on almost every platform including the PS3 which personally I think the game plays and looks best on, to your PC, and of course the Wii. Which really makes me debate just which system is the most fun to play. If graphics are your thing I'd say definitely go with the PS3 or PC editions but the Wii functionality of using the controller as your gun really takes the cake as it has been my very first shooter game for the Wii and it makes an already challenging game ever more challenging not to mention incredibly fun. Playing head to head on the Wii is also great fun and will leave the guys howling for more.

I know what I will be wrapping for the guys in my life on Christmas. You guys should go and check it out too. Call of Duty World at War is rated mature and is for players 17 and up. You can read more about Call of Duty World at War at its website or purchase your own copy on Amazon!

I have a copy of Call of Duty World at War for the Nintendo Wii to give away to one lucky winner!

Dead or alive Extreme 2 (follow up to extreme volleyball). All you do is take your buxom beauty, and have her bounce around different beach activites. (note: set your age to 99 in DOA games, and the girls bounce a little more... If you know what I mean)
