I hate having to redo things over and over again, this is no good!

Sorry I can't answer your specific question, but I'm in the same boat (two boys, 4 & 6).

Mario cart was recommended to me as a 'must have'. There are also some games for the wii fit's balance board (wii ski, for ex.) that I figured the kids could master quicker than games using the remote. Other than that, it seems like all of the popular cartoon characters have their own games - Spongebob, Dora, etc.

You may be able to find some answers HERE.

Get the wii fit as soon as you can (Walmart has em for $89)... it's the coolest video-game thing I've seen... not only will your wife love you for it, but the whole family will enjoy it (most likely you, too).

PS3. I checked the IGN and GT forums and i'm not the only one having these problems either. I'm done with this game until there's a patch.

Ouch... your having some pain. Might want to do various check point saves instead of having to start over. I used to do that for some other games.

You sound like you either went a different direction or are way ahead of me. I'm the type that explores everthing so i get side tracked and don't typically rush through missions. I'm just completing the first survivior book mission to the grocery store and fixing to report in to the female who gave the mission.

Just getting ready to start the game...I looked at gamefaqs and didn't see any posts about terrible glitches. Maybe your disc is bad. I'm on a 360, so we shall see.

If you check around the forums you will find a number of people having as bad of a time as me. There isn't anything wrong with the disc, it's just a glitchy game.

Joystiqs negareview was also pretty good in picking out the various problems with the game.

A few hours in and no problem so far-except the damn ants. I cleared out the super market and then headed over to help the kid find his dad and I don't have enough ammo to keep the buggers off me. I'm thinking that I am not ready to fight them. I am almost to level 3

I've been playing Fallout3 all weekend. I must have 20 hrs in the game-it is huge. I haven't had any glitches that I noticed. Game hasn't frozen up...been tons of fun. I did get the guide because this world is huge andlike Oblivion a person can spend a lot of time wandering around getting nowhere...The world map is unwieldy and the maps in the book aren't so good, but the walkthrus are very good.

The graphics in the games are great-when you get into D.C. you can really see the devastation.
