iPhone is a serious gaming platform

When will the non-believers wake up!

Time to put this debate to sleep, The iPhone is a serious gaming platform, period! If you are a true gamer you should appreciate all platforms surely? The whole debate and fanboyism reminds me of Snes vs Megadrive, PS1 vs N64, Xbox vs PS2 and so on! Thankfully I am lucky enough to own pretty much every mainstream game console ever released. I love quality games regardless of platform.

iPad is here, Steve jobs announced the new tablet device today as expected. The media hype surrounding this announcement has been absolutely huge. Twitter has been buzzing all day and the hashtags #iSlate, #iPad etc.. have been trending for much of it. But who is this device actually aimed at?

I have a laptop, a PC, a decent Phone, a 3rd gen iPod Touch, various next gen games consoles and other gaming handheld devices. Do I need an iPad? My head says no, my wallet says no and even the Apple geek in me says NO! I expect that many other techie types are of the same opinion?

Eliminate microtransactions in FPS games

It could of been so very very good....

I jumped for joy when ngmoco released Rolando for the iPhone, I was so impressed by Topple it prompted me to downloaded the full version of Rolando when it hit the app store.

I have been playing games on my iPod touch for over a year now, and I thought it might be nice to write a little list of my favourite games on the platform so far.

Caligo Chaser (Beta) iPhone Preview

Caligo Chaser
New Side-Scrolling Action RPG by Com2uS

This week, I had an opportunity to participate in the beta testing of an upcoming action RPG by Com2uS. While not particularly groundbreaking, Caligo Chaser is an ambitious title with excellent role-playing features and tactical melee combat. It gives you the best of what's available in an RPG game like Inotia 2 and quality gameplay similar to Gamevil's Hybrid: Eternal Whisper. If you are in the market for a more action-based role playing game, Caligo Chaser should be at the top of your list of purchases when it hits the App Store.
