God bless the endless press releases that filter in to my e-mail box each and every day. Without them, I wouldn't have had the slightest idea the Game Wave DVD player/game system was an alternative to PlayStation 3 and Wii.
Now, color me peach and black—and color me taken aback—but any system that offers games such as Letter Zap and Lock 5 (a word search and safe-cracking game, respectively), shouldn't necessarily be marketed as an alternative to one that plays games that are, you know, fun. But maybe I just live in Crazytown and drink the oddly flavored Kool-Aid all day.
"Whatever the occasion, your family room is guaranteed to come alive with laughter, conversation and friendly competition," the Game Wave Web site proclaims. I'm just not sure if the Game Wave is out of its box when this is happening.
