MOGA Rebel – a full MFi controller is awesome and now available

141112-01_3qtr

The MOGA Rebel is the first full sized and full function standalone iOS MFI controller to make it out into the real world, and it’s just about perfect.

For players that are used to the full sized controllers of a modern console, most of the MFi controllers out so far for the iPhone are more than a bit cramped. Small buttons, short travel joysticks, and cramped hands are common complaints. MOGA hopes to take gaming on the iPhone and iPad up a notch by releasing the Rebel, a full sized joystick with a full compliment of sticks and buttons. (more…)

New Rovio Stars Game ‘Plunder Pirates’ Released

Rovio Stars, the publishing arm of the famed Angry Birds developer, has released some really good games, like Tiny Thief and Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. Its latest title to hit the App Store is Plunder Pirates, a game the company is billing as “the best looking mobile game ever.” I don’t know if I’d go that far, but you can watch the trailer below and download the game for free right here.

PAX Interview: Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend publisher, Devolver Digital, on mobile plans and the launch of Cosmic DJ

Some of the most talked about mobile games at PAX were the upcoming survival game, This War of Mine, the ragdoll platformer, The Sleeping Prince, and the color blending puzzler, Light in the Dark.

But what most piqued my interest was the trippy Cosmic DJ set to release this month on iOS.

A clever music sequencing tool masquerading as a super fun EDM RPG, Cosmic DJ is the first game from Austin-based sound design studio GL33K known for its work on iconic game franchises including Halo, Uncharted and Metroid.

On the show floor, I found myself boogie-ing for over an hour in Cosmic DJ, battling bad vibes to reunite lovers, best buds, a band and a dismembered corgi through the power of music. I raved to killer tracks, immersed myself in the acid graphics, and howled at the lulzy dialogue.

Lots and lots of other bits and bobs surrounding the Apple announcements yesterday. Here’s a quick summary of some of the more interesting ones and some further thoughts.

iCloud Drive pricing – 9to5Mac found the final pricing for iCloud Drive — pretty much matches the pricing of Google Drive — $20/month for 1TB.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus start on Friday (9/12) — it should work like previous years where you can start ordering at midnight — but we’ll know more soon.

In-Store If you are a line up and buy my iPhone type person, the phones go on sale in Apple Stores, carrier stores, and some retail locations on Friday, September 19th. Apple Stores are always your best bet — other stores will have much smaller inventories.

Hit the jump for more!

Today while Apple didn’t surprise many, they certainly did impress all. Delivering a full slate of new devices and services in what must be said was the biggest Apple event in years.

We saw the new, larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus join the 5c and 5s creating what is a great range of mobile devices. We also saw the addition of a whole new platform for Apple in the Apple Watch. Apple also extended themselves to payment — Apple Pay which uses existing credit cards and proposes to use them in a secure way for quick, touch free payments at supported retail and online locations.

Hit the jump for more details, analysis, and tons of pictures.

Today is the day! Will we see the new iPhone (most certainly)? Will we seem the iWatch (likely)? Will we see super hot games running on the new phone – I hope so.

Join us on Twitter for updates live during the announcement starting at 10am Pacific tomorrow. We’ll also have full details and analysis of the announcement and (hopefully) hands-on impressions here tomorrow afternoon.

You can also watch the whole Apple announcement live on Apple.com. Here we go!
