    Vitality Sensor to be shown again at E3

    The last time we saw or heard anything about the Vitality Sensor was at this past E3. Since then it’s been nothing but a flat line in terms of new information on the peripheral. But it looks like we’re going to get some new information about the Vitality Sensor at next year’s E3. In an interview with Kotaku, Reggie Fils-Aime stated: “We will show off the Vitality Sensor with software at E3. I’m not going to give you any more hints beyond that.” We’ve suggested that we may see the Vitality Sensor in use with an upcoming Hudson title which the producer promptly denied. I guess we’ll see at E3. Follow

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 sets all time sales records

    Yes, we’re still talking MW2 on GamingAngels. The title is making all kinds of waves and today it’s the good kind… money. Modern Warfare 2 has shattered theatrical box office and video game sales for five-day worldwide sales. The new records for five days of sales is now $550 million according to initial Activision estimates. $550 million is huge. To give you some sort of idea on comparisons with other forms of entertainment, Activision sent over a list of items that they beat out: The largest reported five-day opening worldwide box office gross figures, held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($394 million) The largest reported five-day opening domestic box office gross figures, held by The Dark Knight ($203.8 million) The largest reported five-day worldwide video game sales record, previously held by Grand Theft Auto IV (6 million units, $500 million) The largest reported opening first-day domestic box office

    Review: Zombie Pizza

    Platform:  iPhone/ iPod Touch Publisher: Appy Entertainment Rating: 9+ for Infrequent/ Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence and Infrequent/Mild Horror/ Fear Themes. PASS I received Zombie Pizza to review at the same time I was reviewing a different cooking game: Gourmania. I couldn’t ask for 2 more different games.  In Zombie Pizza, players to help the zombies by providing pizzas to nourish them. Players are given a cookbook to look over before entering the kitchen. The point then becomes to make as many pizzas as possible that match the recipes in the cookbook. This earns players points and once players reach certain levels, they are awarded with medals.  Although Zombie Pizza is rated 9+ for Infrequent/ Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence and Infrequent/Mild Horror/ Fear Themes, I would find it very difficult to believe any child older than 6 or 7 would be disturbed by this game. Yes, players are using human organs

    Buying Microsoft – An Abusive Relationship

    It was a summer day when it happened again. The sun hung high in the sky, the temperature found itself comfortable around 75, so naturally I was inside playing Left 4 Dead. Ever since the Survivor DLC, my Xbox 360 had been acting, well… weird. Freezing on the loading screens became a daily occurrence. Frustrating, but bearable; at least it wasn’t a Red Ring of Death. That is, until it was. Call me an idealist, but I thought that Microsoft would never let the same customer get Red Ringed twice — No way, they’d fixed it. Sure there were horror stories buzzing around message boards of gamers who had Red Ringed six, seven times, but of course that could never happen to me, right? If the term “fangirl” is appropriate here, I’ll take it, but I truly had faith in Microsoft fixing my Xbox when it broke the first time.
