Pedometer RPG

Bandai proves that no gadget is too simple or everyday not to contain a role-playing game. Its latest example is a pedometer game that comes in two forms: one based on Star Blazers and the other on 3000 Leagues in Search of Mother. Walk, level up, walk, level up ... It's just like Diablo, except you mindlessly exercise a different part of the body and it is not fun. It's $45 and will hit the online stores in time for Christmas.

    Very similar to the Pikachu 2 game I had a few years ago. A mixture of a tamagotchi and a pedometer.

    So it doesn’t actually detect pedos? Disappointing.
