After you’ve killed the enemy and they’ve come back as zombies so you have to kill them again, what’s the next logical step for Call of Duty? Ghosts. Of course, there aren’t many details about the plot in the game announcement, so “ghosts” could be a reference to some kind of new stealth mode for players, but let’s hope the idea here is that you’re supposed to take out spirits of the dead. +Continue Reading

The extra time has given the producers a chance to create a long-rumored version for Nintendo’s new Wii U console, one that creates a “strategic mission interface,” designed to take advantage of that Wii U controller that looks like either a big smartphone or a small iPad, depending on your point of reference. The trailer shows off how the GamePad can be used for trirotor drone control, to operate spy cams, select weapons and gadgets and to mark your targets. +Continue Reading
So Simcity 5 came out abouta month ago and it was an interesting launch at best. Simcity 5 isn’t actually Simcity 5, but it is the fifth installment of the series. On the box it just says Simcity, because EA is stupid—everyone just calls it Simcity 5 or Simcity 2013 (this is the same naming protocol they’re using for the next Command & Conquer, which isn’t Command & Conquer Generals 2, it’s just Command & Conquer). +Continue Reading

The full-blown shooter game experience hasn’t yet translated to Android devices or the iPhone, so the brand-new free-to-download Rivals at War takes a different approach to smartphone gaming.
You assemble a team of warriors, assign them weapons and sit back and watch to see your battlefield strategy unfold.

BLUF: I went into this expecting to hate the game. At first glance it looked like a carbon copy of other games I’ve really enjoyed, with some of the disadvantages of playing a phone-based game added in. I wasn’t just wrong, I was way wrong. I’ve been playing this game as close to non-stop as I can get away with for nearly two weeks.
So I was expecting World of Arms from Gameloft to be your basic RTS (Real Time Strategy) or TBS (Turn Based Strategy) game, but it’s not, not really anyway. There’s more of an element of chance to it, influenced by how you play the game and how you use power-ups on the field. Having more advanced weaponry allows you to kill your enemies more efficiently, obviously. You get advanced weaponry with in game currency gained by leveling or you can purchase things with premium currency (which is bought irl with actual money). It’s not a new idea, but it’s a good one. Once you’re sucked in you’re going to want to use some of that allowance to buy a ‘Charger’ tank. +Continue Reading
