With its growing focus on mobile gaming and its penchant for trying to out-popular already popular games, Zynga was going to get around to stepping on Temple Run‘s toes eventually, and what better way than to combine the joy of endless running with the trusted …With Friends brand? The result is a combination I’m finding much more compelling than I expected.
When I’m in the cockpit of a fighter aircraft, the last thing I want to do is slow down — I certainly don’t want to wait my turn. I need a joystick in my hand, a first-person view and buttons for machine guns and/or missiles. I was pretty sure Sid Meier of civilisation and Pirates! fame had finally created a game I did not want to play in Ace Patrol. I was mistaken.
Super Mario World, which is a game about a plumber riding a dinosaur, is filled with rules that make absolutely no sense. For example, if you — and by “you” I mean the character you inhabit, Mario the plumber — jump on something dangerous, it will kill you, unless you are big, or wearing a costume, or riding a dinosaur.
Late last year I had a chance to check out the Live Gamer HD, an easy-to-use video capture card from AverMedia that allowed me to capture 1080p video from just about any HDMI source using a simple pass-through connection. It was the easiest hardware solution for capturing and streaming game footage I’d come across.
Library Wars, a new live-action movie based on the anime and novel series of the same name, was released in theatres across Japan just over a week ago. It is everything from a war story to a light-hearted romantic comedy. But at its core, it remains an excellent social commentary on the dangers of censorship while still giving the viewer an engaging story.
