GameTruck for Teens and Adults

At GameTruck Colorado Springs, we understand that video games are not just for kids. If you’re looking to entertain older gamers, we’re sure to have something for you, no matter your age. This month, we’ve decided to take a look at our most requested and played Teen and Mature rated games.

Teen Rated Games

Injustice 2

Injustice 2: The sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us allows players to build and power up their favorite DC characters. With every showdown, players earn gear to equip, customize and level up their character which impacts not only how they look but also how they can fight. Players can choose from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game. Injustice 2 picks up right where Injustice: Gods Among Us left off with Batman and his allies working towards putting society back together, but having to fight off a new threat that will put Earth’s every existence at risk.

Star Wars Battlefront

With the long-awaited return of Star Wars films, EA has revived the beloved series with the hit next-generation reboot. Battlefront allows you to step into the shoes of heroes, villains, and foot soldiers alike to take part in iconic moments from the original Star Wars trilogy. Now you can recreate your favorite battles from a galaxy far, far away.

Mature-Rated Games

Call of Duty (Series)

GameTruck Colorado Springs carries nearly the entire CoD series in our collection, but Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are easily the most requested and played of the series. Say what you will about the single player story mode, you can’t beat CoD’s fast-paced multiplayer action. Whether your preferred game is Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, or Free-for-all, load up your favorite map and let the (digital) bullets fly.

Halo 4 and 5

The famous Halo series can be seen as the Super Mario Bros. of 3D home consoles: the original changed the way that the average gamer viewed what a game could be, and set the standard for most games that followed it. Halo 4 and Halo 5 continue the grand tradition and high expectations set by the original nearly two decades ago.

Mortal Kombat X

The original “adult game,” Mortal Kombat shocked parents and politicians alike when it hit the arcade in 1992. Mortal Kombat X is the tenth main installment of the series and continues the long-standing tradition of intense action, bloodshed, and complex storylines. Story mode woes aside, the game features amazingly smooth gameplay and tight controls that turn your friendly deathmatch into a showcase for your “Kombat” skills.

5 Kid-Approved Activities for Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is just around the corner, which means that moms all across the country are anticipating the classic gifts: chocolate, flowers, and burnt breakfast in bed. More than that, they’re looking forward to spending some quality time with their families. Who could ask for more?

Kids love the day just as much as you do. They get to celebrate their favorite person in the world, after all. To help kick things off, we’ve compiled some of our favorite activities to celebrate the day with your kids.

1. Arts and Crafts

There’s a lot of fun DIY arts and crafts projects that you can make with your kids. You can paint, bake, or even go on a bug safari. Break out the construction paper and get them to make mother’s day cards or paper mache flowers for you (or other family members).

2. Video Games

Video games are a fun and engaging way to play with your children. There are so many options of consoles and games that are built for group play, and really foster a fun environment. There can be some serious quality time snuggled up on the couch while playing a game.

Our recent favorite is the newly launched Nintendo Switch. It is a great choice for family bonding activities. The console features a broad variety of games and is sure to have something for everyone — including mom. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great game to play with the whole family with its fun multiplayer options.

3. Day Trip

You don’t have to spend a fortune on a vacation. Take a day trip to a local art or history museum. Or, find a nice park, pack a lunch, and have a picnic. Just don’t feed the ducks! Bread makes them sick.

4. Board Games

Board games are making a serious comeback. Break out the games & snacks, and have an all day game-a-thon with classics like Clue, Life, or that one where you get pied in the face. They’re board games, not bored games, so feel free to get a little silly with it.

5. Movies

Mother’s day is a great time to share some memories with your kids. Watch some old home movies or share pictures of your childhood. Take a trip down memory lane and blow their minds with the fact that you were a kid once, too. They’re sure to get a thrill out of the pre-smartphone era.

Reasons GameTruck is Ideal for Summer Camps

It’s April, which means that summer is just around the corner.

It’s the perfect time to book GameTruck for an excitement and fun-filled day.

Summer is supposed to be a vacation from the ordinary routine of school. Here are a few reasons to make this summer extraordinary with a GameTruck party.

Video Games: Social Activities in Disguise

Sure, most parents would confine kids to traditional summer camp activities: sports, arts and crafts, and the like. Kids get bored with the same things year after year. Face it; the traditional summer camp gets old fast. Break the monotony by giving your campers an event that they’ll love.

Video games are an ideal activity for a summer camp. While the stereotype of the lone gamer is predominant in pop culture, the truth is that video games create a social environment. Players from all walks of life find common ground and bond over gaming.

The new Nintendo Switch is an excellent model for social gaming, allowing ad hoc wireless gaming for up to sixteen players. Bring your campers closer together!

GameTruck: Weatherproof

While most people associate the season with blue skies and sunshine, summer doesn’t guarantee excellent weather. You’re not always going to have the sunny days that you might expect.

If the forecast predicts rain, don’t let weather patterns ruin the fun. Each of our video game trailers are climate-controlled and, more importantly, dry.

Did a storm knock out your power? Not to worry; each of our video game trailers are self-powered and comes packing a backup generator – just in case.

Give your counselors a break. GameTruck’s GameCoaches handle the entire party so that your instructors can take a short, and much needed, rest. They can even join in on the fun!
