Saturday Night Live ran a segment this weekend that pokes fun at tech reviewers who complained about the shortcomings of the iPhone 5. For the record, the iPhone 5 received overwhelmingly positive reviews, but SNL makes some humorously scathing points. Watch the clip below.
I’m always a fan of something that takes an artistic slant toward gameplay. Vignettes does just that in a bright pastel color palette with a series of object puzzles and visual effects. To quote Skeleton Brothers, the makers:
Vignettes is a casual but unique exploration game without text or characters, where objects shapeshift as you spin them around to wander through a kaleidoscope of different moods and settings.
Not that kind of cat fight. In this cartoon game the player creates an almost Rube Goldberg-esque fighting robot and battles other players creations. In a sort of jousting fashion, each player pushes to destroy the other players robot. This is an interesting departure for Zeptolab, the makers of the Cut The Rope franchise. A foray into the multiplayer world with a quirky, but fun game.
For fans of the Telltale Games story / decision type game like me, who also happen to be fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, this is a no-brainer. In typical Telltale fashion this is a great story and a great game and makes me feel like I am in the movie. In non-mobile fashion this game is best played in long play sessions.
This purchase includes Episode 1 and an in-app purchase unlocks the others (to be released over time).
