Gamer Grub

Some might say gamers are an entirely differently species who require a special diet – Gamer Grub agrees.  Gamer Grub snacks are specially designed to improve the performance of gamers. Packed with vitamins and many other chemicals we can hardly spell or pronounce, Gamer Grub offers a delicious snack, which will also help gamers to power up.

To raise the awareness of their product, Gamer Grub’s booth at E3 gave out free sample for the drained by-passers to refuel. The snacks come in different flavors such as Pizza, PB&J, Wasabi and Chocolate, which were all very tasty.

If you are in dire need to step up your game, Gamer Grub is available at Fry’s and ThinkGeek. Remember—eat well and prosper.

Arkham Asylum

God dammit, Warner Brothers, how the hell am I supposed to come into this convention without any bias when you set up a demo center like this?

They brought in their own little slice of Arkham Asylum to display the latest Batman game to attendees of E3 ‘09, and while it took for-f*cking-ever to get a turn to play it on the 360, it was well worth the wait.

Hit the jump for our impressions of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Every convention has a booth that becomes the “hangout” or the “meet-up” booth for friends and crowds to gather after walking the show floor. At , the EA booth was certainly that spot. Located at the entrance of the South Hall with a stage ample enough to have three dance crews have dance offs, this booth became the ideal location. Not only did the girls working out with EA’s Active attract the crowds, but also great presentations like Real Time Worlds’ APB which had everyone sitting in awe. When you didn’t find me conversing with the many people I met up there, I was playing or watching others play games. Madden 10, Harry Potter, Dead Space Extraction, EA Active, Need for Speed Shift, G.I. Joe, Tiger Woods 10, Brutal Legends and NHL 10 are just some of the games that could be found at the show floor.

EA Active review

I want to workout without going to the gym – much like the millions of people that have purchased Wiifit. However, I’m not a huge fan of the game. Having to stop every time after a small workout was very time consuming and lead me not to want to “play”.  EA Sports Active does not only look like a lot of fun but it also gives you a real workout feeling.  Giving you the option to customize your routines and what parts of the body you want to work out, it gives you the variety you need to keep going. It also offers levels from easy to hard so everyone one can accomplish the routine they set out to do.

For those looking for more motivation, they can opt to the 30-day challenge. It’ll keep track of your workouts, nutrition, give you the historic graphs of your progress and will give you tips for relieving stress, eating healthier, and motivation to keep your challenge going.

EA Active is a gym, personal trainer and nutritionist all in one game-like experience.  Tons of workout modes, exercises and abilities to customize your sessions, your workouts are sure to never get repetitive and keep you going.  It’s a great substitution for anyone that feels WiiFit does not give them a real workout experience.

Description

All Points Bulletin (APB) is a third-person action game from the creators of Crackdown, Real Time Worlds. “Focusing on ‘the three C’s’—creativity, conflict and celebrity” APB gives the player freedom to create anything they want.

Creating your own characters and cars are things we have done before in games like Oblivion and Forza, but APB pushes this feature like never before.  When in character creation, standard options like gender, skin tone and other physical features are available for customization. But APB goes a little bit deeper and allows you to pick a hairstyle and how long it needs to be or even pick breast cup-sizes for the girls. Tattoos? They got those too. Design your tattoo art, color and size to place anywhere you want it to be.

PS2Just when you were thinking of retiring your PlayStation 2 in favor of a PS3, Sony announced at the E3 that they will be releasing 100 new titles this year. CEO Jack Tretton claims, “We’re committed to the PS2 for as long as users see value in it.”

It certainly doesn’t hurt that the 9 year-old console itself is only $99.00 and now perhaps others will opt for the cheaper game system. Tretton also said that there will be 35 exclusive games for the PS3 in 2009.

DiRT 2 e3 2009 impressions

As a big fan of DiRT and having put in many hours into the game, I was extremely excited to get my hands on the demo at the Microsoft booth at this years .  DiRT 2 looks and feels like DiRT, but with a kick. Powered by the third generation of the EGO Engine’s racing game technology, DiRT 2 offers tuned-up car-handling and new damage engine effects.

It’s all about details and that’s what makes the difference. Depending on your car, tuning or even what type of road you are on, every vehicle will feel different. Find a car you love?  You are able to use your favorite vehicle and tune it with add-ons. With seven vehicle classes and a large collection of officially licensed rally cars and off-roads vehicles, I doubt you will have any problem in finding the best vehicle.
