Zombies are invading a city (again!), but this time you aren’t going to stop them with guns or spiked bats. Zombii Attack from Gamers Digital gives players a giant slingshot that shoots anvils and bowling balls at cartoony zombies in this Wii game.

Oh my, what have we done. We discovered Atlus was publishing My World, My Way (aka Sekai wa Atashi de Mawatteru), Steal Princess, and The Dark Spire before they got a chance to announce any of these. They still haven’t announced the latter two which has led to speculation about what The Dark Spire is. […]

By Spencer . December 5, 2006 . 3:16pm

While the ESRB has had its fair share of controversy, a survey study by the Harrison Group and Activision suggest that the ratings are having an effect. Eighty-four percent of parents were “very familiar” with the ESRB rating system and seventy-nine percent said they pay close attention to the ESRB ratings. Over half of the […]
