Rabbids Go Home!!

So, it’s late and I’ve been to a football match between AC Milan and Club America. I’ve also had a ridiculous amount of stress on my mind because in less than 40 days I have to move out of my apartment, and we’ve yet to find anywhere to go. I’m talking critical mass levels of stress, this could turn into Chernobyl. How did I find the time to see the football with so much else going on? I bought these tickets like 4 or 5 months ago for some reason. Apparently I didn’t foresee that it would fall on a Wednesday night during an extremely volatile period of life. Still, I’m here and I’m bringing Rabbids with me.

The Wii is a console that is perhaps best known for mini-games. You know the ones, games that take 5 or 10 minutes of your time and leave you feeling satisfied for about the same amount. When the Wii first launched, and even to this day, Mini-Game-Games were/are part of the reason the Wii would not be taken seriously. Then came Rayman Raving Rabbids and its incredible sense of humor. The fact that it came packed with some good games didn’t hurt. Of course, this was followed by Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, and Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, the latter of which utilized the balance board. Unfortunately, the games in the series have gotten more and more watered down, leaving the consumer (you and I) feeling less satisfied. This is the case with all games that specialize in the whole mini-game smorgasbord. Maybe that’s what crack is like… Well, eventually people need something new and Ubisoft is here to deliver with Rabbids Go Home.

This time around the development team has not only ditched the games namesake, Rayman, but they are giving us a detox period by straying from the mini-game. Instead of a plethora of mini-games the Rabbids will be starring in a comedy-adventure game that has the little rascals trying to escape our planet for their own. I’m pretty sure shenanigans and hi-jinx will be in full force, and hope the Rabbids can pull the title off. God knows they didn’t need Rayman, I just hope they don’t spiral out of control once they’re free of his grasp. Wait, were they ever in control? Below you’ll find a couple of videos that showcase the Rabbids and some of the action they’re in store for when Rabbids Go Home hits shelves later this year.
