So from time to time I head into the Apple app store and search video game titles to see what pops up, and this time it paid off in a big way. IGN recently released a new app for Skyrim. The app, which is free, gives you just about anything that you would want in a video game app. The app offers wallpapers, interactive maps, Wiki guides, videos, a skill tree planner, voice reference and social network connectivity and sharing. Now, I probably should’ve popped in Skyrim today to test out things like the maps section and the walk throughRead More
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
These are characters I feel are stupidly useless or annoying, which may be worse. Most games have something redeeming but we´ve all played games that featured buzz kill personalities that ruin the experience. Here are my top ten shittiest characters.
In a bit of news out of the GDC 2012, Gamasutra sat down with one Ben Cousins; and boy did he have a lot on his mind. One of those things was the apparent end of the video game console. Cousins pointed out that there was a tipping point in 1998 where arcades were overtaken by consoles — and in fact, the console business is, as of today, 17 times the size of the arcade business. It’s true. Arcades are nowhere near as popular as they once were. The one at my local mall is still in business, but itRead More
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but what do you think? In my honest opinion, I don’t care for it… at all! I honestly don’t know who would come up with something like this and say out loud “yeah, this is a great idea! Let’s do this!” I do think that if Jobs hadn’t passed away so soon, he would have toppled the Android makers easily. This is all my opinion of course… check out the article originally posted at tecca.com In the months following long-time Apple CEO Steve Jobs’s untimely death, we’ve seen him resurrected inRead More
Use your mind to solve the puzzles in order to let Swampy get his bath on! I just wanted to pass along this gem of a game today. Over the weekend, I downloaded Disney’s latest release “Where’s My Water?” which is basically a physics game of water motion and finding a way to get the water to the main pipes so that that the main character, Swampy can take his bath! The object of the game is to dig paths to create a track for the water leading to the pipe connected to Swampy’s shower. The first few levels areRead More
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
Derek van Vliet from Get Set Games was nice enough to give me some of his free time for a quick interview, mostly about the future of Mega Jump and Get Set Games. I just recently read on their website that Mega Jump has just hit 9 million users, so congrats guys! Even though I am probably one of the worst interviewers of all time I got some great information from Derek including Mega Jumps steps to becoming a multi-player game and iPad compatible. Anyway check out the video above and if you don’t have Mega Jump you should probablyRead More
EA just announced that Yahtzee ,the game you wish your grandmother never bought you, is now coming out on the iPad. The game will feature a new mode that Yahtzee socialites can now enjoy, the game will take shaking the dice to a whole new level.
GTA: China Town Wars HD will now be available on the iPad. So now you will be able to play all that Chinatown Wars goodness on a much larger screen, larger than ever before. The only problem, is it will be impossible to play on said iPad, so you might want to look into making your hands larger. Either an intense disclaimer or a recommendation for minor plastic surgery by Rockstar Games is probably forthcoming.
