If you’re a regular visitor to this little corner of the Interwebs, you’ve probably noticed a lack of updates lately. Well, I’m here to say it’s not my fault. I’ve been buried under an avalanche of new games that, for some reason, have all been released during the last month-and-a-half.
Given the success of Nintendo’s “Wii Fit,” it’s no surprise that other companies have begun looking at ways to capitalize on the fitness craze.
The latest to toss its spandex into the ring is Electronic Arts, which today announced “EA Sports Active.” While “Wii Fit” focused primarily on balance and stretching, “Active” is geared more toward strength building and cardio exercises.
“EA Sports Active” is on track for a 2009 release and will retail for $59.99, $30 less than “Wii Fit.” For more on the game, check out this interview with EA Sports chief Peter Moore at Gamespot.
One of the year’s most anticipated Xbox 360 exclusives, “Gears of War 2,” is now available and selling like hotcakes — the game has already sold more than 2 million copies since its Nov. 7 release. To see what all the fuss is about, head over to the Video Games section of wvgazette.com to read a full review.
I’ve posted my review of EA’s “Dead Space” at the Video Games section of wvgazette.com. I was absolutely blown away by how good this game is and it’s easily the most terrifying game I’ve played since “Doom 3.” If you’re a fan of survival-horror games, or just looking for a good scare, definitely check this one out.
