I have a confession, I'm hopelessly addicted to SimCity BuildIt on the iPad. I've put in more hours than I care to admit on the game. It walks that fine line between the Free To Play Model and just a good ol' fashioned game of SimCity.
Because I'm apparently a grumpy luddite who hates all things new, charming, and fun, I never got into the Pokémon Go craze last year. Since I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on the face of the planet for whom that's true, then the news that Pokémon Go is adding a cooperative mode this summer will likely be of interest to you.
Designer board games are getting quite popular these days, to the point where we’re starting to see quality digital adaptations of them. Though co-op board games are a popular genre (check out Marc’s Tabletop Co-op series), surprisingly few of these games have been adapted from their cardboard forms. Mysterium bucks this trend, being a ...
Steelseries is a big name in headsets, so when they told me they were launching a radically different line, I was intrigued. After using the Arctis 3 in my daily work and gaming routine for over three weeks, I’ve been impressed with the performance, though the experience comes with its own unique, and sometimes annoying, quirks.
HyperX launched two new peripherals in the past month: the Cloud Stinger headset and Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming keyboard. After using them for a couple of weeks now, I definitely find them worthy of consideration for a mid-budget gamer.
Its been sometime since we've talked about KingsRoad. The game launched early last year on iPad after being available on PC for quite sometime as a free to play browser game. Recently Mike discovered the game is fully available on IOS and Android with full cross platform co-op play with the PC. Sweet.
No Microsoft E3 conference would be complete without mention of the world-building juggernaut that is Minecraft. Last year they showed what could be possible with the HoloLens (whenever that materializes) and this year they're focusing more on the gaming together side of things. The new "Friendly Update" will allow PC (Windows 10 edition), mobile device, and VR players to all join and play in the same Realm.
Nvidia has really been pushing its Shield brand as a way to get your game on. We're not talking about flinging birds or ninjaing fruit, either, we're talking real games. Case in point: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is now available for Nvidia Shield Android TV, and yeah, it's got co-op!
With Assault Android Cactus finally landing onto the PlayStation 4, I need some help. Can someone explain to me the frequency of combat droids resembling adorable little girls? Sure, you don't want your nefarious army composed entirely of hulking DeathBots like all the other mad scientists. But out of all the robot designs out there, why do we have to throw the cutesy ones into battle? With Assault Android Cactus, you can even launch four at a time into robotic bullet hell.
If you are over rank 150 in Puzzle and Dragons, you now have the option to tackle a dungeon with a friend that is at least rank 10. All you have to do is create a room under the Multiplayer Dungeons menu option and share that number with a friend or enter the room ID you have received.
Hey there, Minecraft: Pocket Edition players! Thanks for waiting. You know how everyone on PC and consoles has been enjoying creating interactive things using redstone switches? Well, now you can, too, all from the comfort of your iOS or Android device. Let the levering begin!
The words “twin-stick shooter” have become far too common a descriptor for games these days and it feels, at times, like the gamut of possibilities for what types of things you can shoot using two joysticks on a controller has now reached its exhaustive conclusion. Then you play a game like Assault Android Cactus and remember why t...
