Speaking of 'Chaos Rings' - First Trailer Released!

I guess Square Enix isn't fooling around with this release. A few weeks after posting new staff at game studio Media.Vision, Final Fantasy Ring picked up on the news and Famitsu got a hold on the game's name, 'Chaos Rings'. Youtube Trailer: Personally I'm blown away by just how good this game looks - easily comparable (if not better) than Final Fantasy 8 on the Playstation. Touch Arcade forum member GDSage has provided more details - and English trailer and screenshots are apparently on the near horizon. News via New Square Enix RPG - Chaos Ring @ Touch Arcade forums.…

FFXIII Image Gallery - Rockefeller Edition?

Critics and fans are polarized about just how good Final Fantasy XIII is as the latest major entry in the Final Fantasy series. Square Enix is no stranger to merchandising their products and if you're a fan of their RPGs you might be used to having your wallet gouged, but would you be willing to pay $8.99 for images on your iPhone? Final Fantasy XIII: Larger-than-Life Gallery is just that - a unique collection of artwork and calendars featuring characters from the game. So just how does a set of images (that will no doubt find their way to fan-created sites and forums anyway) end up costing so much? The images are in fact high-definition and can be zoomed in and out of to explore the deta…

'74-Days Of The Smartphone' or 'Just How Well Did They Sell?'

So which smartphone is leading the market? Just how do you judge who's "winning" in this competitive mobile-gadget arena? After compiling sales for the first 74 days of each major smartphone's release, mobile phone analysis firm Flurry has revealed that the Droid sold 50,000 more units than the iPhone in the same period. Flurry blogger Peter Farago provides some insight as to how Motorola might have managed to eke out more sales than Apple for their product (incidentally, 74 days is how long it took Apple to reach 1 million sales from the the iPhone 1G's launch). "Motorola Droid launched over 2.5 years after the iPhone 1G. (Nov 2009 vs. July 2007). When the iPhone launched, consumers' conc…

Game Preview: WordSearch Rush

Word search games aren't exactly the most popular games available on the App Store. They tend to be more for a niche crowd of puzzle lovers with super-human eyesight. I mean honestly... those grids can be HUGE. And on such a tiny screen? Not a great combo. YouTube Preview: WordSearch Rush by UK developers We Are Colin aims to not only make word search games playable, but genuinely fun. Their twist on the gameplay involves time-based combo bonuses for quickly finding words in a 7x7 (or occasionally 8x8) grid and extra points for selecting the words backwards.
