Party Time!

On Xbox Live that is.

As part of the "Bringing it Home" initiative, Microsoft is going to be posting tons of videos and trailers and hopefully a few demos from the Tokyo Game Show this week. The first demo went Live (pardon the pun) this morning and it's for Viva Pinata Party Animals. It's a party game for up to 4 players (on the couch or over Live) with 40+ party games and 12 foot races featuring the characters from the cartoon and videogame of the same name, Viva Pinata. Personally, I love the Viva Pinata stuff. I think the game is fantastic, one of the best "sandbox" style games I've ever played. And I actually like the cartoon too. It's really funny and wonderfully animated.

I'm downloading the demo right now (971 MB) and really hope it's good. My sister and her boyfriend are getting an X360 this fall and this is exactly the type of game I look forward to playing with them. We might be 3,000 miles apart, but if we can play and chat together every week it will certainly make the distance seem less. And what better way to do it than competing in a Laugh-a-Lympics style collection of mini games with farting pinatas?

Watch a Viva Pinata Party Animals trailer here.

I have more to say about Live and the Xbox 360 as a whole, but I'm saving it for a lengthier post. Maybe tomorrow.
