Here's one for anyone who's ever thought up a video game they'd love to see produced — it can happen! If you're an influential Hollywood director, anyway.
Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg loves the Wii and its ability to get his children off the sofa, but he wasn't satisfied with all the game offerings — so he teamed up with Electronic Arts to create his own game.
Boom Blox Bash Party (say that three times fast) is a block-destroying puzzle game that's good for all ages, but still looks like the fun and production value are high enough for the likes of me.
The game is out today and if you end up liking it, more good news: this is the second game of Spielberg's two-game deal with EA, so you can also check out the first, Boom Blox.
