During an interview with Wired, the industry fixture said he was retiring from his position as Nintendo's head of Game Design to work on smaller projects, but Nintendo says that's not the case.
WB Interactive and Netherealm Studios bring the caped crusader to iOS with this touch-based brawler.
Considering Microsoft has their own mobile operating system they have been trying to draw a customer base toward (Windows Phone 7), I never really expected this to happen -- but it finally has. Xbox LIVE users can now access and edit their account on the go with the new My Xbox LIVE app for iOS devices!
As you can imagine, this was an instant download for us as soon as we found out about it and it's everything we could have hoped for. After you log in using your Live ID (the e-mail and password used to create your Xbox LIVE account) you're instantly thrown into a very familiar space. The “home” section loads up with the same gaming “spotlight' we find on our Xbox 360 dashboard and from there we have access to two other tabs – “social” and “games”. Read More...
In this interview, the Chuck star talks about bringing some nerd cred to this week's big gaming awards show, how we're all nerds, shares his first gaming obsession, as well as the bittersweet feelings of wrapping up his cult favorite NBC show after five seasons.
It's not hard to guess what Judge Dredd vs Zombies is all about – A zombie infestation has struck the heart of Mega-City One and the baddest judge, jury and executioner around, Joseph Dredd, is on a mission to wipe out the undead nuisance in an arcade-style shoot-em-up. Sounds fun, right? head past the break for our review. Read More...
"Jetpack Joyride" has remained a constant presence on my iPad and iPhone since it launched last week, and now it seems the developer, Halfbrick Studios, has given fans of Barry Steakfries another reason to return to the addictive survival game.
Most iOS games have a first update which rectifies small bugs here and there. The first "Jetpack Joyride" update does this, too, but it also adds a handful of new unlockables to the mix.
The other week, Take-Two and Rockstar released a few new screenshots of "Max Payne 3," featuring a slightly less hobo-tastic version of the game's main protagonist. There really wasn't much more in the way of info, except that Rockstar promised more details were "coming soon." Well, the company has delivered today, announcing that Payne's third adventure will hit North American and European shelves in March 2012.
What the hell is "VidRhythm"? It's really best if you don't know. But given that Harmonix is asking for $2 for their latest creation, I know many will not simply download the app on good faith, so I'll try to detail as much as I can without spoiling it.
"VidRhythm" is a music video creator for those who don't have the first clue about video editing. It asks that you select a song (the app comes with 20 pre-loaded) and a theme, ranging from cats to colors to "Dance Central." Then you're tasked with recording all of the sound for that tune. Generally this is no more than six or seven sounds, recorded through your iOS camera, complete with video. The process, starting from scratch to finished music video, takes as little as three minutes.
It's pretty rare to find a game these days that intentionally thrusts players into a mysterious and deadly world with little to no instruction to guide them. No tutorial, no on-screen prompts, no nothing. You arrive in a place of danger and the only way you can learn how to survive is by dying a whole bunch. Recent examples, like "Limbo" and "Minecraft" are few and far between, but in the '80s and '90s, brutally merciless games were pretty common. One of my favorites was "Out of this World," also known as "Another World" across the globe. And now the game's creator, Eric Chahi, is bringing his alien adventure to iPhone and iPad on September 22.
A few months ago, I attempted to share with you the joys of a game called "Machine Gun Jetpack." Since then the game, created by Halfbrick Studios (of "Fruit Ninja" fame) went through a name change and is now known as "Jetpack Joyride." The title's been in development for about 9 months now and, depending on where you live in the world, you may be able to download it right now.
