A lot of very talented and independent game developers spend their time trying to amass enough creativity and ideas to work on something big but starting off in the app business. We’ve got billions of apps just waiting to be downloaded and be played with. Well, one guy thought of making an app that’s a social experiment, something that will have everyone playing the game together. How is this game different from Angry Birds or Temple Run? First off, this game won’t use any birds nor any running at all. What you will be doing is collectively trying to chipRead More
A document recently surfaced containing several new patents from Apple. Among these patents were plans for a dual shock controller. The controller, which holds a striking resemblance to the Playstation 3 controller, is fairly unimpressive. What’s intriguing; however, is what this might mean for the gaming industry. Early rumors and speculation are pointing to the possibility of the controller working with Apple TV, which has not been as successful as the company had hoped, but that’s not coming from Apple and neither is any other info about the game pad. The picture also seems to show the controller somehow interactingRead More
A few days ago, owners of Rock Band for the iOS platform were hit with this message: It was funny because when questioned, Harmonix immediately pointed the blame over to EA: “EA Mobile is responsible for the publishing and hosting of Rock Band on iOS,” a Harmonix representative said. “We’re reaching out to them to better understand what’s happening with the app.” … the ensuing fan-hate seemed almost palpable. Fans of the game flocked to the iOS store, slamming it with 1-star ratings, calling it a rip-off while lambasting EA’s sales practices. Well, as of today, EA hasRead More

For all the flack gaming journalists get for having “polarizing reviews,” the largest bulk of bitching about often comes from scores that swim between 70% – 85%. In any other industry, you would assume those are rather good scores, but for video games, one could be forgiven for thinking, if you only read community feedback, that anything less than an A+ is fail. I used to think this was because gamers are quick to defend or bash something they love or hate, and this is true; however, after spending some time on the Android and iOS store, I think IRead More
A bored fan of things Japanese serving out his sentence in Monmouthshire, Wales, was found in possession of several dangerous weapons created out of matchsticks, including one gun with a revolving barrel . Although not to scale (considering how big these are in FF games am I right?) and made from, you know matchsticks, prison guards still feel he is a threat. A source said, “The knives were lethal.” I think we should start worrying, personally, when he starts making matchstick bullets since that’s what kill people, not guns. (TYKontaku)

Blizzard announced that they are ‘looking at’ making World of Warcraft playable on iOS devices. Obviously the image above is a little misguiding because other than the iPad, I honestly don’t know if the iPhone 4 or any other iOS device could support WoW graphically. World of Warcraft as part of Blizzard, already has a huge variety of online services and apps that keep them close to their daily players, even when they aren’t on their computers. So since they already run the internet (estimated; some 9 million daily U.S. players), why not just take over everyone’s mobile apple devices.Read More
This is one of my person favorite games on the iPhone. Especially the multiplayer mode because it was done especially well. To hear that this is going to be released on Kinect makes me happy. Finally I have a game I will actually use for the Kinect. The trailer is actually really impressive and funny so check it out. Doubts: I hope that the lag time is not apparent in Fruit Ninja Kinect because that would make the game BLOW!
I’ve always said the hard times is when the gaming community shows their true colors. Sure, we can be a general group of trash talking dick weasels, but every time there is a fund raiser with gaming at the center of it, gamers seem to open their wallets without second thought. Possibly because they didn’t actually pay for any of their games, but that’s a different discussion. The important news is from the Capcom Unity blog. Thank you to everyone who has sent inquiries and wished us well during this crisis. We want to reiterate that all of our employeesRead More
