10/30/2010 Evil Dead iPhone game? Groovy Evil-dead-iphone-game-groovy-header

Massive, massive Evil Dead fan here. So much so that I have thoroughly enjoyed every Evil Dead game ever put out, despite knowing that some of them weren't really up to snuff. Thankfully, the next game based on the franchise is looking pretty neat, even if the trailer gives us no information on it other than its going to be pretty faithful to the original film and it's on iDevices.

That's actually pretty awesome in my opinion. The first film in the series often gets shadowed behind the subsequent two, which had Ash kicking ass and taking names with his boom stick. Plus, I can't wait to see how they handle a certain scene involving a tree and a woman's hoonanny. Not sure interactivity will really improve that... or get past the folks at Apple.

We got in touch with the guys behind it, who go by The Evil Dead App Team, but they are being tight lipped. All they would say is that it's coming out later this year, it is officially licensed, and that there will be plenty of gore.

10/18/2010 Evening Reading: History of my friends play Dev Obsessed Well the games of fall are really pouring in now. Fallout: New Vegas this week, Fable 3 and Rock Band 3 next, and the Kinect launch and Black Ops right around the corner. Add in all the assorted others and it's easy to get completely inundated. Yet over the weekend it seemed like all I heard people talking about was Game Dev Story for the iPhone/iPod.

Here's what we've been talking about on the Shack today:

  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Cinematic Trailer
  • Steam Surges Past 30 million accounts with 178% growth over the last year
  • The first DLC for Fallout: New Vegas exclusively on 360 this holiday season
  • Blizzard Sues Three StarCraft 2 Hackers
And a few random things to wrap up Monday with:
  • If you haven't yet, watch...

10/08/2010 Mobigame Considers Legal Action Against Tim Langdell

Mobigame, sees an opening and it may take it. At least that's what one of the many companies targeted by Edge Games over the use of the word "Edge" says. The developer who created a game for the iPhone called "Edge," tells Eurogamer that it may seek legal action against Tim Langdell and his company.

\\ "It is not over yet," Mobigame CEO David Papazian told Eurogamer.net. "Now we will continue to support the EA in the fight against Tim Langdell. The next step is that all of its trademarks abolished USPTO."

\\ "After that, he can not hurt anyone, he added."

"We are still thinking to start a legal action against Langdell to claim a reparation for the prejudice," Papazian claimed. Read More

10/08/2010 Failure in My Pocket: Gaming’s Tortured History of Handheld Convergence
<< Previous | Next >>

It 'of SA games! It 'SA portable device performance! It 'SA a huge failure.

Everybody likes playing videogames on a handheld device, and everybody likes being able to access the Internet from their pocket. So doesn't it make total sense to put them all together into one superdevice?

That doesn't stop would-be competitors from trying again and again, though. This week, it was Panasonic announcing Jungle, a handheld computer built for running massively multiplayer online games.

So it seems that we're going to do the same old song and dance, let 'S walk through the history of handheld convergence.

game.com (1997)

Game.com was the first full game system released by Tiger, maker of the dedicated LCD handheld games sold in toy stores.

Released in 1997, game.com was full of good ideas -- in theory. Most notably, it had a touch screen and stylus pen, which Nintendo DS would use to great effect nearly a decade later. It could connect to the Internet for text-based web browsing and email, although it required bulky extra hardware and a monthly fee to do it. Pretty advanced for 1997, so of course it really didn't work that well.

Tiger really didn't seem to know what its audience was. The grown-up functionality and games like Resident Evil seemed to be aimed at adults, but like all of Tiger's products game.com was only sold in the toy sections of department stores. It fizzled out fast.

10/04/2010 Monkey IslandHelmet maker of corporate control over the game publishing An anonymous reader writes "Ron Gilbert, co-creator of classic games Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island 1 and 2, and many more, has spoken out against corporate censorship — the way of large companies getting a say on what does or does not get published on the distribution channels they control. Although his insightful rant applies to a number of corporations (Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and Comcast are mentioned), most of the direct examples single out Apple. Quoting: 'Apple has maintained an almost North Koreanish dictatorial control over the devices, becoming the arbitrator over what is good and bad, what is allowed and not allowed. They don't have this control over the Mac because it is a real computer and an open device, but they can do this with the iPhone because we (as consumers) were convinced by the cell phone carriers that they needed this control to protect their networks (in the same way they wouldn't let us own our own telephones in the '70s) and Apple was happy to jump on that ship because they could finally control everything that went on the device and we bought it into it. Apple apologists say that Apple needs this control to maintain the "specialness" of the device. I say that's a load of crap.'" He also mentions Adidas dropping out of iAds because they couldn't accept Apple's excessive creative control, and a photography app that was rejected because it used the volume buttons as trigger."

10/06/2010 Warner Bros. appoints Greg Ballard, senior vice president "Digital Games ' Warner Bros. has tapped former Glu Mobile president and CEO Greg Ballard to serve as its senior vice president of Digital Games. He will serve under Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, reporting to both division presidents.

Ballard will be in charge of the company's wide digital distribution business as it pertains to PC, console, handheld and mobile games; online titles, including social games, owned and operated MMOs and "light persistent worlds"; and TV-delivered and on-demand streaming games. That leaves a lot to consider, but we'd be satisfied just to get a lot more Batman DLC for the next one. Make it happen, Ballard.

Additionally, the new vee-pee will oversee Turbine, creator of The Lord of the Rings Online , and has been tasked with recruiting a new GM for the studio.

More recently, Ballard can be found in the warm armchair CEO Transpera, mobile video advertising network. It 's also held executive positions at Capcom and now-defunct digital photography, the developer of the famous "contentious " early '90s FMV classic, Night Trap . You know, the genre is making a comeback with iPhone ports ... Make it happen, Ballard.

09/17/2010 Face Shooting App from The Onion Gets Rejected

A few months ago the consummate smart assess at the Onion News Network deployed a news report on a hot new game (fake, of course) called Close Range. The report detailed the main point of the game: to shoot people and animals at close range in the face. The video, which you can watch here is hilarious.

But t that enough Wasn 'for ONN. They thought it would be a good idea to create the actual game for the iPhone. When they went to get approval from Apple, their application was rejected. Big shock there. Apparently, the idea of shooting people or animals at close range was too forced concept for Apple.

What got them, as Game, Set, Watch points out, is this line from the Apple App Guidelines:

"apps portraying realistic images of people or animals being killed or maimed, shot, stabbed, tortured or injured will be rejected." Read More

09/16/2010 EA Mobile to 'take advantage' of Android trend It seems like more and more developers and publishers are jumping on the Android bandwagon, with the latest being Electronic Arts. Speaking at the Deutsche Bank 2010 Technology Conference, as reported by Gamasutra, EA CFO Eric Brown discussed the company's plans to ramp up support for Android in the near future. Brown noted that "there's a lot to happen in the future in Android" and EA is set to "position [its] mobile business to take advantage of that trend." Brown cited the increasing adoption rate of Android devices, and noted that he believes the market is shifting toward smartphones, what he described as "a PS2 to PS3 transition."

It 's not surprising to see EA so want to support the Android OS. Last year the company made a killing at the ITunes App Store, the publication of four top ten best-selling games on the platform, including the overall best-selling game, The Sims 3.

09/06/2010 MapleStory: Thief Edition Dominates Store Apple App

Nexon America's Maple Story is a very popular franchise as an MMO, but how does it fare as a iPhone game? It holds up pretty well as a stand-alone action role-playing game too, according to Nexon America. The company announced this week that its side- scrolling action role playing game, MapleStory: Thief Edition, has made it to the top of the App Store game charts. The MapleStory MMO has more than 95 million registered users worldwide with more than seven million users in North America alone.

Priced at $4.99, the game hit the Apple App Story mid-August and made it to the number one position in the Role Playing game category. MapleStory: Thief Edition was also one of the more popular and highest grossing games overall during the same time period.

To get your hands on the game, check ITunes .
