Superbrothers: Swords and Sworcery EP Review – An otherworldly experience but a frustrating game
Let me get this off my chest first – I am no fan of 8-bit, pixel art games. As such, I ignored Superbrothers: Swords & Sworcery EP when it got released on the iPad over a year and a half ago. I still ignored it when it

The recently released Xbox Smartglass application from Microsoft received an update yesterday that brings with it support for 7" Android tablets.

Most of Gameloft games now compatible with the Acer Iconia Tab A510

I’ve been using the Acer Iconia Tab A510 as my primary Android device ever since I sold my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 back in May, and there was no bigger frustration than coming to know that my device was basically unsupported by Gameloft. Up until a few hours ago, only a handful (and by a handful I mean six) games were supported. I can’t recall all six, but Let’s Golf HD, Men in Black and the two latest games in the Asphalt series were among four of the supported games.

Editorial: Is the onslaught of Nexus brand devices tarnishing the brand overall?

Back in the day of the first Nexus device, the Nexus One, the device brought with it all the hardware we had wanted at that time and then some. It was what could truly be considered a flagship device as it was ahead of pretty much any other Android device available at the time it launched. Since then we have had a few more Nexus devices land in our laps, each one seemingly a little less stellar than its predecessor, although still very strong devices. Now we have had a rumor for awhile that there could be up to 5 Nexus devices heading our way soon, each from a different manufacturer.

Google's new Nexus tablet review: 7 tons of fun

The new Google Nexus 7 tablet surprised me much more than I thought it would. I’ve played with Android tablets before and even own an iPad, but I have never spent much time with one of the seven inch models. As soon as you take the 7 out of the box, plug it in and turn it on you’re in familiar territory. At the same time, the feel and responsiveness of the device is a bit shocking.
