Viximo, a platform for cross-platform social games, is broadening its distribution reach today with the launch of its Social Zone platform which helps make mobile apps more social.
If bootleg Super Mario Bros. stickers can be this bizarre and fun, I don't think I ever want official ones. I picked these sheets up for a buck each from a little mom-and-pop shop near my house. So far, the laughs I've had far outweigh the initial cost. I expect no less from a product that features the awkward phrase, "We have hopes because we have love. Made in china [sic]”.
Normally I find the leap year to be very exciting, but now all I can see it as is an extra day between me and Mass Effect 3.
Here at Bitmob, we like to write. We know you do, too. In fact, you guys pump out so much great content that some of it gets lost in the abyssal depths of the Mobfeed. And it's scary down there. (Seriously, I think I saw a kraken in there once.)
BioWare can’t seem to catch a break. Not surprising given their track record of absolutely horrible decisions…the Mass Effect 3 From Ashes DLC is another of those debacles.
Wilhelm died, but anyone who's played World of Warcraft knows that death isn't a permanent status for the inhabitants of Azeroth. You simply need to walk over to your corpse, and you're as good as new! Of course, non-player characters aren't afforded this same luxury. Wouldn't it be awkward if Arthas just respawned with slightly less durability after you killed him? I guess it's best not to think about the logistics of massively-multiplayer games.
Living in rural Ohio affords me certain opportunities others don’t get to enjoy. For example, few know the simple pleasure of completely understanding the following analogy: “Like a cow pissing on a flat rock.”
Vindicia, a provider of the CashBox billing and customer management system for online merchants, is announcing today that consumers will be able to pay for items with their mobile phone numbers through a partnership with mobile payments firm Boku.
Editor's Pick Many newer-generation video games equate religion with violence, finds a new study from the University of Missouri.
You should see the look on my girlfriend's face. My much better half doesn't typically hold me in particularly high regard, but tonight she is being especially disrespectful. I'm a man, and I shouldn't be made to feel like a video game invalid simply because I need help beating this stupid level.
Online gaming powerhouse Bigpoint is showing off scenes today from its upcoming online role-playing game based on HBO’s hit television show Game of Thrones.
I'm in a tornado watch right now, which is more confusing than scary. If this is the last thing anyone hears from me, though, know this: Drive deserved more Oscar recognition, and that wasn't even the best song from The Muppets.
I'm always in the market for groovy lamps. They don't last long in my house, what with pets and flying Wii remotes.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is change-up for hardcore fans of Remedy Entertainment‘s story-driven psychological thriller Alan Wake. It is available as an Xbox Live Arcade downloadable title for $15 on the Xbox 360. The experience is a real stand-alone game, but it is not as deep or sophisticated as a $60 console game. It has its own self-contained story and a fun new arcade mode that makes the game play much more enjoyable.
The first two pieces of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are now available to Elite Premium members on the PlayStation Network, but not everyone is happy about it.
Sony said today that its PlayStation Vita gaming handheld has sold more than 1.2 million units worldwide. The Vita went on sale last week in the U.S. and Europe, and it has been on sale since December in Japan.
Goplay is launching a web portal for social games in the hopes of luring disaffected publishers away from Facebook.
Have you played this game Triple Town? I understand that it is popular. What I don’t understand is Triple Town itself. Grass turns into bushes and bears turn into gravestones, and I don’t know what is happening. It’s like the developers took that crazy guy who yells at me on the street and had him write out the rule set for a puzzle game.
Sonic has had a rough past, but things have definitely been lightening for him with releases such as Sonic Generations and Sonic Colors. Let's hope the good games keep coming!
Folks, we have to talk about something.
Look, maybe you're super grateful to some young Pokémon trainer and feel the need to reward him with a one-of-a-kind Master Ball. Resist this urge. That kid has no sense of the value of a super-rare item capable of capturing any Pokémon with only one try. Seriously, giving him that ball could lead to disasters like the one shown in this video.
I need bullets to feel secure. Even something as unnatural as the undead couldn't scare me if I had a loaded gun in hand. Unfortunately for the zombie that had burst out of the closet, I had plenty of ammo as I littered his corpse with holes. When I raised my pistol to another fiend who had shown itself in the hallway, I realized I only had one bullet left. I shot the abomination in the head, and it responded by slamming me against the wall and eating my face. This was just one of the many scenarios in which I died in Capcom's upcoming title, Resident Evil: Revelations.
Mike Tinney, president of online games company CCP Games North America, has decided to leave the company to create a new startup in the games and health space.
No matter how you look at it, the game industry is red hot.
