This was one hell of a month for the iPhone gaming scene. Not only did we get a slew of awesome new titles, but also the bombshell news that Street Fighter IV is heading to the platform. Plus, the first two entries in the Final Fantasy series were released onto the App Store with some nice graphical additions. Too bad the gameplay wasn't improved as well
What a difference a year makes. Last May when we travelled to Bizarre Creations' Liverpool HQ for the first ever hands-on with Blur, we experienced a Frankenstein racer that wasn't nearly as fun to play as it should've been. And now 12 months letter... well, it's sorted...
It's a bit of a sad thing to us that the traditional days of social gaming have faded as we've become more separated by admittedly awesome technology. Nowadays, we play with our friends mostly online, with headsets or hastily typed text. It's too bad, because a favorite pastime of every gamer is backseat gaming.
Forget Far Cry 2. The real sequel to Crytek’s tropical PC-only shooter was Crysis, a game so powerful it could only run on a nuclear-powered PC the size of a semi truck. Until now.
For the past twelve months, Crytek have, through a series of tech demos, been floating the very real possibility of a Crysis sequel running on consoles as well as PC. CryEngine 3 videos seemed to point towards modifications – but not many.
Last year, we ran a feature where we turned popular videogames into chocolate bars. The comments on that feature were so choc-full of great ideas, we thought we'd revisit it and give them the same treatment.

We recently got another chance to test out how well Tarzan (er, Rico) the secret agent swings in the run up to his launch into the public sphere in late March. And it turns out that he’s swinging rather well, as it happens.
Let’s do a quick recap for those who haven’t been here very long. Rico is a sort of Hispanic James Bond, but with an even more uncanny ability to dodge death and defeat evil.
Just as obsessive dog owners morph into strange likenesses of their canine friends, hardcore gamers become manifestations of their game collections. The genres we play reveal truths about our lifestyles - the way we dress, the friends we keep, and the music we listen to. Or... maybe it’s completely ridiculous to make sweeping generalisations based on dogs and videogame genres. Maybe.
A lot of stuff happens in the world of games every week - some of which you might have missed. Here's a quick round-up of what we considered to be the most talked about news stories of the past five days....'Milo shits out the back of the telly'
Charlie Brooker, sardonic UK comedic writer and star of much-praised Newswipe and Gameswipe TV shows has apparently offended Peter Molyneux with some typically cutting remarks about
