Soul Fjord, the Ouya exclusive by Portal creator Kim Swift and her team at Airtight Games (Quantum Conundrum), will be out on January 28. It's free-to-play (with in-app purchases, of course, because nothing is ever really free).


Just in time for Christmas, the tiny Android console gets its first limited edition recolour. At $US129.99 it's $US30 more than the standard edition, but it's also $US30 prettier and comes with 16GB storage instead of 8GB, so it all works out.


Dinosaurs make everything better -- and racing games are no exception. Dino Run 2 is a multiplayer game where you have to outrun extinction -- a rather novel premise, no? I don't even particularly like racing games, but this has my attention.


At $US249.99, Mad Catz's M.O.J.O. Android micro-console will cost two and a half times more than the Ouya when it's released December 10. It'll also be six times as powerful with the potential to stream games from your PC to your television set, so I'd say it evens out.


A few weeks back, Ouya launched a campaign with the very best intentions. It wanted to encourage developers to make games for its platform, by matching the amount of money made in a Kickstarter. But this is the real world, and it didn't work out too great.
