Games other than Pokemon GO politicians should be playing in parliament

Games other than Pokemon GO politicians should be playing in parliament

The Norwegian Prime Minister has played Pokemon GO in parliament not once, not three times, but twice. Which is pretty cool. It must be nice to have a Prime Minister that plays games and isn’t instigating overtly fascist policies. Ho hum. Anyway it got me thinking about which mobile games politicians could play when they’re supposed to be doing important but boring things like running the country. That’s not even that big of a logical leap, it just sort of made sense. So here’s a list of the ones I thought of in the time I pointed my brain in the direction of that particular problem. It’s by no means a comprehensive list, because quite frankly that would be co…

4 mobile games you could play instead of Mafia III

Mafia III has just come out on consoles. I’m only telling you this because this part of the article is an introduction to the themes we’re going to be dealing with later on. I was pretty sure you already knew that Mafia III was out on consoles, you’re smart you are. Anyway, Mafia III isn’t out on mobile. Well, there’s a free to play RPG version but I’m not counting that because, well who counts things like that? No one cool, that’s for sure. And you and me? We’re super cool. So I thought I’d make you a list of games that are a bit like Mafia III that you CAN play on your phone or tablet. Because that just seemed like a good id…

3 ways VR will take over your life

3 ways VR will take over your life

Virtual Reality dominates any and all discussion in the games industry right now. Every game seems to have a VR port or expansion on the way. And for good reason - most who've tried it think VR could be the next big step for gaming, akin to the switch from 2D to 3D in the 1990s. VR has its fair share of naysayers, of course, as does anything. There are still people who believe FIFA is better than PES, for example. Some people never learn. But while VR is impressive from a gaming perspective, and adds a new layer of immersion, it's the technology's non gaming possibilities that excite me. Could we be using an Oculus Rift to speak to our relatives on the other side of the world in 10 years'…

The 3 best Android phones available in 2016 - Does the Pixel make the cut?

Are you a fan of slightly glitchy interfaces? Love holding cheap materials in your hand? Like your devices in the explodey variety? Then you'll love Android phones! Nah, I'm kidding - Android is alright. I've got nothing against them. I've got one myself, in fact, because I can't afford an iPhone. Oh well. But if your heart's set on getting a 'Droid, or you just can't quite scrape enough together to go for an iPhone, then check out our list of the best Android phones out there today. Google Pixel Cost: £599 / £719 Where better to start than what Google hopes is the iPhone's new nemesis? The Pixel comes with iPhone grade prices, but also iPhone grade specs. It's armed wit…

4 ways Apple can HIT BACK at Google after the Pixel reveal

4 ways Apple can HIT BACK at Google after the Pixel reveal

This week, Google finally revealed its much anticipated follow up to the Nexus: the Pixel phone. The consensus seems to be that Google has built a genuine challenger to the iPhone. I mean, of course they have - they look exactly the same! Some people, however, seem to think the Pixel is pointless. That the point of an Android phone is to be cheap, and that anyone who's spending £599 on a piece of metal to go in their pocket is going to spend it on Apple's hunk o' junk. There's definitely an argument to be had there, but we think the Pixel is gorgeous, and finally offers stiff, big money, big profile, big spec, big everything competition to the iPhone. Given all that then, how can A…

Bioware's RPGs ranked from worst to best

Do you like endless fetch quests? Love sub-par combat? Are you a horny teenager looking to love it up with a virtual vixen? Then you'll love Bioware's RPGs! Bioware RPGs have been sending fans to sleep for years, but I'm afraid I've got some sad news for all you mobile players out there - Jade Empire, Bioware's 2005 RPG originally released for the Xbox - is now on iPad. I know, I'm sorry. To celebrate (commiserate), we're going to rank the major Bioware RPG series from the past few years from worst to best. Strap yourselves in! 5. Dragon Age Listen, Dragon Age is rubbish. It's dull, trite, and nonsensical trash. I don't know about you, but I am so so bored of mages and dwarves and ye…

Google Pixel vs iPhone 7 - which is best?

After Carphone Warehouse spoiled the surprise a day early, Google finally unveiled its new Pixel phone yesterday! And guess what? It kinda looks like a huge rip off of the iPhone! Google has sold its own phones for a while now of course - just made by other companies and labelled with the Nexus brand rather than anything overtly Googlarian (that's probably a word). And Nexus has always been the benchmark for Android phones. As Android as it gets without being a walking, talking robot. Now though, Google seems to be taking its flagship phone in a new direction - on a collision course with Apple! The Pixel phone looks to imitate the iPhone in every conceivable way. So let's examine which is…

Feral Fury has a gun-wielding panda madman, and as such is amazing

Yeah, you read that right. Turns out Fatal Fury sees you control a panda out of control. You're equipped up to the eyeballs with pistols, assault rifles, and bamboo weaponry. I may have made that last one up. Either way, this is cool!…

Be pleasantly puzzled by ZPLAY’s Mr. Catt

There are a lot of tile-matching games for the mobile platform, but Mr. Catt stands out from the pack with visual charm alone. The latest release from Beijing publisher ZPLAY manages to combine fairytale graphics with distinctive gameplay mechanics. You play as a black cat, star-hopping in the hopes of finding your missing feline friend. Each star represents a puzzle stage, and there are over 300 to solve as the story unfolds over 3 episodes. Gameplay involves moving coloured blocks onto the board to create matching triads. You can also use special blocks like Lightning to your advantage, clearing the board more quickly. The bigger the combo of matching blocks, the higher your score, so i…

Ubisoft’s new social quiz game FaceUp – The Selfie Game released

Gaming is often at its best when it takesa simple premise, but executes it perfectly. Ubisoft’s new social quiz game FaceUp takes this very approach by looking to use your selfies in a gaming format. The developers made this one with gamers in mind due to its charades-styled guess work. Online and offline, selfie takers can do battle with each other, as you attempt to guess the other person’s expression. FaceUp tasks you with correctly identifying their friend’s mood or expression - with options ranging from politicians, boxers right up to fish and even spies. If you wish to gloat about your razor sharp detection skills, the game provides support through social media a…

Being PewDiePie isn't as fun as it looks

PewDiePie has a new game out. If you're reading this, you probably already knew that. It's called PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator (presumably because they weren't allowed to have YouTube in the title), and it's the latest in a long line of mobile games to be associated with real celebrities. Most of them are bad. This one is no different. If this is what life is really like for ol Pewds, I feel really sorry for the bloke. Everything is pixelated Pixelation makes everything ugly. Often, games with an 8-bit art style look bright and colourful, but as you will see, this game is dark, grey, and murky to the core. Microtransactions are everywhere You have to pay for everything.

Google conference 2016 - Pixel Phone and more of what to expect

Tonight, on the evening of 4th October (UK time, that is. It might be morning where you are. How am I supposed to know?), Google is set to reveal its new Pixel phone, which has been the subject of much speculation and excitement. Until now. Now is finally time for them to be unveiled. And like an impatient child on Christmas Eve, we're here to spoil all the surprises. So what can we expect from Google's conference tonight? Pixel Phone First on the agenda will surely be Google's own much-hyped Pixel phone. Unfortunately for Google (or Alphabet, as I suppose we should call them now?) is that the whole thing was leaked recently by confusingly non-automobile related mobile shop Carphone War…
