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
Kiip, sounds like a new candy bar; with twice the taste and half-the-fat. Fortunately for us, “GameVainers” this isn’t the case. They are a start-up rewards company that is giving out prizes for simply playing games on mobile devices. To break it down to it’s bare essentials; the more you game, the more points you are awarded. You can cash those points out for prizes. Sounds like the digital Chuck E. Cheese? Well because it is, since so many game companies have been getting into the rewards business(i.e. GameStop), it makes perfect sense that App. moguls would want their pieceRead More
I’m sure many of you are like me and have been insanely busy these last few weeks as summer wound down and school started back. Whether you have kids in school, are in school yourself or have a job that has anything to do with school, you’ve been busy. My job keeps me busy working with the local schools during the first few weeks on top of being in school myself. As such, my console/PC gaming time has dropped to a near extinct level, and yours may have too. But have no fear, I bring you glad tidings 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

T-Mobile created this Angry Birds meets reality event to promote the vast network of games they have on their cellar devices. The first person goes up and plays Angry Birds on the cell and BAM it happens in reality right in front of them. Check it out in the video below it’s pretty damn amazing.
Obviously this is not a real Angry Birds movie trailer but it’s an amazing fan made video. The guys over at Rooster Teeth always create funny video game related shorts and has to be one of their best. I always feel bad for the pigs in Angry Birds, I mean they are just hanging out minding their own business when BAM! a fucking bird flies into their personal zone. They need to make an Angry Birds 2: Piggies Revenge where you throw pigs at birds.
What the hell is this girl thinking? Does shit think “Fuck it, in Angry Birds they just restart the level if one of them dies. If my sister dies I’ll just do that.”. Not cool little girl, someone donate five dollars to this family so they can all have a copy of Angry Birds.
