    How The GTA V Destruct-A-Thon Came to Be

    One night in January, gamers gathered at a movie theater in Austin, Texas to play Grand Theft Auto V on the big screen. The goal was to blow stuff up for charity, and it was a big success. Here’s how the event came to be. (more…)


    Lords of Waterdeep Review

    I’m going to call it: We’re in a board game renaissance. Every day I seem to get Kickstarter project alerts for new physical and digital board games. Tablets make a perfect platform for digital versions of board games, and Lords of Waterdeep is the new gold standard for the genre. So, I bid you to cast aside your D20 and enter the Forgotten Realms for one of the best board games I’ve played in a very long time. (more…)

      Flux In-Ear Pro Headset Review

      The fine folks over at SteelSeries sent us a pair of their Flux In-Ear headphones for review. The SteelSeries products have been available for gamers on other platforms, but the Flux headset is aimed at mobile audiophiles. Apple includes a pair of their iconic earbuds with almost every iOS device (why not iPad?) and they offer a good all around experience. The big questions is, how does the Flux In-Ear Pro compare to the stock buds? Let’s take a look. (more…)


      Call of Duty: Strike Team Review

      The juggernaut Call of Duty franchise has endured mixed results when branching out from consoles and PC. The zombie iterations had much success on iOS, but a re-hash of Black Ops failed miserably on PS Vita. iOS seems to be the lucky platform for CoD because Strike Team is a welcomed and refreshing entry that rivals the stagnant console versions in certain ways. Call of Duty: Strike Team provides an excellent first-person shooting experience while integrating an all new top-down tactical mode that steals the show. (more…)

        R.Type Review

        R-Type was released in 2010, then it vanished from the App Store to be reborn recently as R.Type (notice the subtle difference of the period in the title in place of the dash.) In the meantime it has received a handful of new features. (more…)

          More Warhammer 40K Action Coming to iOS with Space Wolf

          The Warhammer franchise is launching an all-out assault on the App Store with another game based on the 40K universe. Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf is a tactical-stratetgy action game heading to iOS in 2014, according to developer HeroCraft Mobile Games.

            Wizards of the Coast has announced that their award winning board game “Dungeons & Dragons: Lords of Waterdeep” will be getting the iOS treatment. (more…)


            Slide To Play Q and A: Breach & Clear

            Breach & Clear is a tactical strategy game that we liked quite a bit when it came out last month. So we chatted with Wes Keltner, the president of Gun and creative director on the game, to talk about its inception, release, and what’s planned for the future. Read on for the goods. (more…)


            Dropchord Review

            The rhythm/music game genre has seen better days. It used to be that the world couldn’t get enough Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Now, piles of used “instruments” clutter the racks of GameStop stores across the country, and their DLC tracks occupy the “deals” list in online stores. The rhythm genre may be a shadow of its former self, but Double Fine Productions knows there is still fun to had. Dropchord is a “music-driven score challenge game” that combines a rock solid soundtrack and precise controls to create a challenging and entertaining experience. (more…)
