I love Oddworld. It’s easily one of the most imaginative places I’ve ever had the joy of experiencing in titles like Abe’s Odyssey and Abe’s Exodus. One venture to that crazy place I missed entirely was Stranger’s Wrath. The game came out way back in 2005 on the original Xbox, and was then ported to PC and PlayStation 3 in 2011. It’s now coming to iOS.

I hate in-app purchases. Whether you call them micro transactions or in-app purchases they boil down to the same thing - taking more money so that you can play your preferred mobile game. How about just letting me buy the full game and play to my heart's content? Well, now they're going for a good cause, so I can't hate them... as much.

App stores are landmine territory for less savvy online surfers and slightly lazy parents. It’s very easy to download apps and games that have the word “free” plastered next to them, even if they require a lot out of your pocket to actually work as intended. This is especially true for free-to-play games, which have hidden behind the "free "sticker on mobile since the very beginning. That’s thankfully not the case anymore.

Remember I told you about that mobile MOBA called Vainglory many moons ago? I’ve had my eye on it simply because it’s being developed by ex Riot and Blizzard employees. I have hopes of it being a decent and well conceived mobile title, and I will find out if it is soon enough. The game finally has a release date.

Despite being a broken, glitchy mess online, Battlefield 4 is still a technically stunning (and demanding) game. It’s on the other side of the visual spectrum, pushing hardware to the limit for photo-realistic representation. You would never expect to get something like Battlefield 4 on a mobile device. Well at least that’s what I thought yesterday.

I'm a fan of smart wearable devices. I've yet to own one, but unlike a lot of people (like Geoff), I actually see the value in having a watch or smart band everywhere I go. I guess it's because most of the common features are ones I would use, especially when it comes to health and fitness tracking. That's why I'm already very excited about Microsoft's entry into the smart wearable tech market.

At onepoint this year, I was incredibly addicted to Hearthstone. As soon as it hit the iPad I was hooked again, making university a slightly more difficult task to undertake. Hearthstone is perfect on the go, but it’s taking a little while longer to get it running on all your handheld devices.

if you told me a few months ago that Goat Simulator was going to be a cult hit, I would have promptly laughed in your face before deleting you off Facebook (you know, to make the unfriending official and stuff). The game has seen some insane success to be honest, especially considering that it really is just about causing destruction as a goat. Wait a second, that sounds awesome! How have I not played it yet?
