Fallout Shelter’s Success Demonstrates Core Gamers Don’t Hate FTP Games

Fallout Shelter is a wild success thanks in part to the popularity of the Fallout series amongst core game players.

I simply believe that Fallout Shelter is another powerful argument for doing away with this article of faith, that F2P has no place with the core audience. If the brand and the game are right, if the monetisation fits people’s expectations and value systems, then F2P can work perfectly well for a core audience.

Looks Like New iPods are On the Way

Apple hasn’t updated the iPod line in what seems like forever. A new hint that an update may be en route came when an eagle-eyed Mac Rumors reader found an image of iPods that don’t exist (yet) in the latest iTunes update. From Mac Rumors:

The new colors include a darker blue for the iPod touch, a new gold or beige color for the iPod nano, and a brighter pink color for the iPod shuffle.

Apple has not updated its iPod color lineup in several years, most recently shifting the previous “slate” color to “space gray” back in 2013. Apple has typically updated its iPod lineup during the month of September, although it is unclear whether these new colors are actually in the works and what their release timeframe might be.

So That’s What a LEGO Angry Bird Looks Like

A big budget Angry Birds movie is slated to release next year, and LEGO is already starting to ramp up the marketing machine by releasing a teaser poster for a LEGO set based on the iOS game franchise. From Kotaku:

Earlier this month LEGO and Rovio announced LEGO Angry Birds, a series of playsets coming in 2016 to coincide with the big budget CGI movie. Now we’ve got our first look at Jason Sudeikis’ Red in LEGO form.

In case you missed it, Sony and Rovio amassed quite a cast for the Angry Birds movie, including Sudeikis as the red bird, Josh Gad as the yellow one, Danny McBride as black bird (singing in the dead of night), David Hader pulling pig duty and Peter Dinklage as the Mighty Eagle.

Tales From the Borderland Episode 3 Review: Continuing Greatness

Telltale’s Tales from the Borderland continues to be great, according to Gamezebo’s review for episode 3.

Overall, Tales From The Borderlands Episode 3 continues the excellent Borderlands-based adventure through new territory. I just wish Telltale Games released them closer together so I could enjoy the cohesive story even more.

Zynga Announces CSR2

The original CSR was an amazing technological feat bringing unbelievable graphics to a mobile platform — but that was three years ago. CSR2 will turn everything up to 11. In a first hand demo at E3 earlier this month I was blown away by the amazing quality. Zynga / Naturalmotion are shooting for beyond console quality — they might get there.

CSR2 will hit soft launch soon, and be launching globally later this year.
