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.
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

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

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.

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

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.
