Well we finished a week of giveaways to celebrate a bunch of different things from just the new year starting to our site redesign launching and even some features we haven’t even launched yet but will be over the next few weeks. Or have we finished giving away stuff yet…
Day: 6 February 2013
Paradox Interactive has announced that they will be bringing Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet to Android tablets in the near future. This top-down RPG will be undergoing a bit of a change from its PC brethren though in terms of the visuals that will come with this new mobile version. Even though the game’s visuals will be of a cartoon style instead of the 3D nature the PC version has, the core game mechanics will remain the same.
So the Minecraft: Pocket Edition 0.6.0 update has been out for a short while now (and the quick 0.6.1 bug fix update as well) and it is time to start talking about the next update which will be 0.7.0 unless Mojang decided to make it an 0.6.x version but that seems doubtful. We’ve already talked about a few features that we are pretty sure will be arriving for this next update but now we pretty much have confirmation on some of them.
From the makers of Doodle Grub comes a new announcement about a new game that will be heading our way soon called The Sandbox. Fans of pixel art are going to find their own personal little heaven with this game as players will be able to create worlds that will be completely in pixel art. You will also be able to destroy worlds in a blaze of pixel art chaotic glory as well.
A new horror-themed adventure puzzle game is currently in development by Night Light Interactive called Whispering Willows. Right now there isn’t a whole lot of details available regarding the game but we do have a gameplay video showing some of the gameplay from an alpha build of the game.
With the upcoming (eventual) release of Final Fantasy IV for Android, I decided it’d be a good time to write up a review for Final Fantasy III. Final Fantasy III has been one of my all-time favorites in the series since the original NES release was translated in the emulation community. It set the ground for the class change system from Final Fantasy V, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and every other game in the series since that gave you the ability to change your character’s class.
It seems like OUYA news always comes in clumps lately and today is no different as we have a few bits of information regarding the Android powered console to go over. First, for those of you who haven’t pre-ordered a unit yet, you can now do so off of Amazon.com and GameStop.com instead of just through the OUYA website.
Yesterday we reported on a new game coming from EA called The Simpsons: Tapped Out which has been a rather popular game over on iOS since its release over there. The weird thing yesterday was that even though it was available on Google Play on EA International’s account, almost no one was able to download it. On top of that there isn’t even a North American version right now.
