Xbox 360 dash gets a Pizza Hut app (rant)

Xbox announced today that there will be an app released for the dashboard of the 360. From the comfort of your couch you can stop in mid game, go back to the dash and order a pie from Pizza Hut.

Wait, wait, wait…. Look, maybe since I’m an older gamer that has a wife and children (on top of the fact that Pizza Hut is disgusting) I find this stupid. Why, is it so hard to understand that when I fire up my console that I, you know, want to play video games. THAT’S IT! I don’t want web browsers, I don’t want to listen to Pandora. I just want to play video games.

Someone over in the Microsoft offices is losing their mind. Either that or they smoke way to much canibus.

Peace.

Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Fighter you should be waiting for.

Quick confession. I really hated Mortal Kombat vs DC. They stripped everything that made Mortal what it is out and gave us a watered down fighter. Not a way to treat your fans that have been starving for a new Mortal since Armageddon on the OG Xbox/PS2. I always debated with my friends the point that if they wanted to have a fighter for DC characters then they should give them their own title. Just leave the Mortal characters out of it. Well, here we have it. NetherRealm has done just that.

I’m really liking the background interaction that they are coming with. Plus they’ll be multi tiered in usual Mortal Kombat fashion.

The roster so far is Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Sinestro, Hawk Girl, Shazam, Joker, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Nightwing, Green Arrow, Cyborg, Bane, Lex Luther and Catwoman. I’m already impressed but hopefully DLC will swell the cast out some.

It’s due April 16, 2013.

Props to IGN for the videos.
