News - Less QQ, more Pew Pew?
Is it just me or are the names of video games getting sillier? We have Motorstorm: Apocolypse which is fair enough as it kinda describes the gameplay, we have Bulletstorm which is in no way related to the run 'n' gun 'kick-your-opponent-in-the-face' style of gameplay. And now we have:
A side-scrolling shooter for the XBox 360 from Incredible Ape, PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew is unique not becasue of it's outstanding story or it's next generation graphics, it's becasue it is completely controlled via voice commands.
This is not a new thing for video games however, anyone who has played Tom Clancys Endwar will agree with that.
The game appears simple enough, having shades of Defender at its heart it might even turn out to be addictive, but how long your neighbours will listen to you shouting "PEW PEW PEW!" at the top of your lungs is anyones guess.
