The majority of you who own an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can download a BitGym app allowing you to exercise on a treadmill, elliptical machine, or exercise bike while feeling like you’re traveling somewhere.  Say good-bye to the monotonous spin of the exercise bike and (hopefully!) feel like you’re driving a car at high speeds by tilting your head in Fit Freeway or traveling through the Swiss Alps in BitGym’s Virtual Active scenic landscape series.

“Kinect 4D Theme Park”

Consumers have been fascinated with 3D technology for decades, spawning Virtual Boy (the first game console with “3D graphics”), 3D TV’s and movie theaters, and the Nintendo 3DS.  Some amusement parks even have their own 3D shows, such as Epcot’s “Honey I Shrunk the Audience.”  This obsession with 3D entertainment has since expanded to an entire 4D avatar amusement park in Korea.

“Final Fantasy XIII-2 – Another Downfall in Storytelling”

Reviews have been filtering in with everyone taking a stand one way or the other – whether XIII-2 is a worthy sequel to XIII.  Many articles and blogs cite the ways in which XIII-2 made improvements upon its predecessor, particularly with more freedom, side quests, and mini-games.  The negativity of fans regarding a lack of such freedom in XIII led Square Enix to showcase traditional RPG aspects (like mini-games) in XIII-2’s trailers in order to regain the confidence of Final Fantasy fans who felt jipped on the last installment of the series.

Although XIII-2 feels more like an actual Final Fantasy game due to the elimination of complete linearity, the storytelling aspect is still harshly criticized.  One review states, “Storytelling, sadly, remains the one place where ‘XIII-2’ stumbles as much as (if not more than) ‘XIII’.”

“Resident Evil 6 Early Access & Dragon Dogma’s Action RPG”

If you buy the action RPG Dragon’s Dogma on May 22nd (the 25th in Europe), you can have access to the Resident Evil demo.  The catch?  Only Xbox 360 users are allowed access that early.  PS3 gamers have to wait until September 4th (the 5th in Europe).
