Tamagotchi to be relaunched as mobile app on iOS and Android

Tamagotchi will be making a return to the video game world as a mobile app for iOS and Android devices, Bandai has announced. The game, called Tamagotchi L.i.f.e., will feature mini-games, retro mode (relive your childhood memories all over again!) and bonuses to be unlocked.
During the late nineties, the classic toy was a handheld digital pet in the shape of an egg. Back in those days, Tamagotchi was (and still is) so popular that schools began banning the game […]


EA Origin for Mac goes live

Just two weeks after it launched in alpha, a stable version of Origin for Mac is now available for download. The Mac version of Electronic Arts’ Origin game distribution client has the same features as its Windows counterpart such as ability to save games and achievements into the ‘cloud’, auto-updating games and sharing to various social networks. Purchased games can be installed unlimited times, on both Windows and Mac computers. However, the titles must be compatible with Macs to […]


Codemasters flashes brief Grid 2 gameplay teaser

Grid 2 is an upcoming racing game that’s coming out this May. The developer of Grid 2, Codemasters (who’s also behind successful race track series Dirt), has just released a 44 second short video of the game. Unfortunately for those looking for more details about the game, the video really only teases 10 seconds worth of gameplay, sandwiched between Codemasters’ 15 second introduction and 19 seconds of ‘pre-order and follow us on our social networks’. In that 10 seconds, we […]

They’re wasting no time and already have plans for their latest acquisition. After announcing a new Assassin’s Creed game for their 2014 fiscal year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot began talking about the company’s studios and that the other Montreal studio (the THQ one) will be working on […]

Zombie Studios brings out Daylight, a horror game using Unreal Engine 4

Daylight is one of the first few games that will run on Epic’s next generation Unreal Engine 4. Although there will probably be many more games that will be announced this year to run on this latest game engine, one can wager that few or none of them will be like Daylight. It’s an odd game, no doubt… Daylight puts you in the shoes of a lady, with no name, who wakes up in an abandoned asylum and unable to […]


9 fresh in-game Crysis 3 screenshots

Today’s a busy day for Crytek. After releasing The Hunt is On trailer for Crysis 3, they’ve also got nine new screenshots to share. Half of them were taken in-game while the others seem to have been rendered by the game’s CryEngine 3. The game’s user interface (UI) appears to be mostly the same as Crysis 2 but with a few tweaks, particularly noticeable in the sleeker right side display of suit energy and ammo/weapons. Detail levels and sharpness […]

During their Q4 financial call, Activision Blizzard confirmed that a new Call of Duty installment is currently in development for the blockbuster franchise’s year-over-year continuity. The 2013 game is likely to be a Modern Warfare sequel, although the fate of the characters have remained largely ambiguous after how Modern Warfare 3 ended with a big bang.
CEO Eric Hirshberg broke the news by saying, “The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect a new […]
