If you're tired of pretending that The Rock is a literal golem or playing the trading card version of wrestling, then the WWE is ready to deliver a (slightly) less fictional experience to hungry gamers.Read More
I just love creepy stuff. Creepy movies, creepy music, creepy old buildings, creepy dolls and other little toys. Even creepypasta. But most of all, I love creepy games. That thrill of being part of the action...there's nothing quite like it (I mean, except actually being in a situation like that...which I probably don't actually want).
Today, Amazon turned its creepy dial up to 11 with the release of a new game called Lost Within from Amazon Game Studios.Read More
Amazon just loves to give away free stuff. I mean seriously, they have free movies, free music, free books, free digital storage, free shipping, and a free cardboard box with every order. Granted, most of those goodies require a Prime membership, but hey, the boxes are really free!
Well, Amazon is up to their normal charitable shenanigans once again today, this time offering up a bundle of paid apps and games on their Appstore for the low price of free (no Prime membership required).Read More
Hearthstone is one of the latest creations of the incredibly successful game developer, Blizzard Entertainment, the name behind famous titles such as Diablo and World of Warcraft. The company specializes in making immersive and addictive games and Hearthstone is no exception. Billed as "Deceptively Simple, Insanely Fun," Hearthstone is a card based strategy game with similar mechanics to other TCGs such as Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh. I'm not sure why I bothered explaining any of that, this is a site full of "Android enthusiasts" (read: nerds) and it's not like you need an introduction to anything created by Blizzard.Read More

Setting aside the fact that Space Marshals is a port, the whole cowboys in space thing has been done before. Joss Whedon's Firefly has thirteen episodes and a movie exploring the concept. Cowboys & Aliens let Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford have a crack at it not too long ago. Before that, Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones gave it a shot in, yes, Space Cowboys.
But in a sea of generic sci-fi shooters, capping aliens in the desert while wearing a 10-gallon hat can feel somewhat refreshing.Read More
Earlier this week we reported on Google's decision to refuse an Android port of the PC shooter Postal in the Google Play Store. Two days later, a representative of developer Running With Scissors told us that Amazon had done the same for the Amazon Appstore, and provided us with the rejection letters from both companies. Google refusing to allow the controversial shooter onto the Play Store is merely inconsistent; as we noted at the time, games with similar levels of violence like Grand Theft Auto III are easily available.Read More
Look, I love zombies as much as the next guy (assuming he actually loves zombies - if he doesn't, then I actually love zombies more than the next guy). I also love zombies games. Here's the problem: good zombies games are hard to find on basically any platform. I realize that they're not all going to be The Last of Us - especially on mobile - but I'd like to see something different every once in a while.Read More
