Good Morning Gato #36 – Our Very Own Kinectimal

Aww, look at Gato. She’s obviously super excited to experience the controller-free gaming revolution that is Kinect. Sadly, she is relocated to the sidelines because Kinect technology doesn’t yet detect her cat paws. Don’t feel sorry for her, though. Gato loves sitting in the Kinect box and watching us play Kinectimals.

The Extermination of Vampire Smile “Crash Bugs”
I just had a brief chat with James regarding the status of the minor bug infestation in The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile. While I was unable to get an exact bug count, I can confirm that every last game-crashing bug has been squish squashed. Great success is ours.

Speaking of bugs, earlier in the week James came across a rather ridiculous Fable III glitch that basically had his character “skating” around the environment on an invisible hover board of fail. (Probably because walking animations are so “last season”.) That said, Silva promises that there will be no weird character hovering glitches in Vampire Smile, that is unless he finds a compelling reason to have Yuki’s main method of movement be hovering.

Z0MB1E Black Ops
There’s a video making the rounds today. One that’s supposedly leaked and showcasing a new game mode hidden in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The new hidden mode looks to be an old-school arcade game called Dead Ops Arcade and … well, it kind of reminds us of GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES. I can’t help but wonder if our buds at Treyarch have ever played a GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT, because I definitely see a wee bit of it in Dead Ops Arcade . Anyway, check out the game below because it looks AH-MAZE-ING!
