Smart watches… they’ve been around for a while now, but it seems that they’re all up in my face since Apple announced their own version. Personally, I’m not sold. I just can’t wrap my head around having a whole new device on my wrist when a simple stretch to a pocket for my phone can provide the same functionality and more. I’m a minority though. Many consumers are interested in them, and companies like EA are interested in utilising them for unique gaming experiences.
SimCity doesn’t exactly ring popular with those still sore over the botched PC launch last year. Another tune that doesn’t sit well with most people is EA on mobile platforms, especially after what they pulled with Dungeon Keeper. So what would happen if two of the most unpopular headaches in recent memory combined? SimCity BuildIt happens.
The Witcher 3 demonstration at Gamescom really blew me away. The game is highly anticipated, to the point where people may forget that it has a younger sibling in the works too. The Witcher: Battle Arena is a mobile MOBA from the same company set in the same universe, and it’s looking for beta testers.
Geez, women are naturally more committed - whether to relationships or gaming. Okay, that first part might not always be true considering what I see on TV, but at least the gaming part is. They spend more money, time and devotion on mobile games than men. Of course, it depends on the game.
I WAS incredibly excited when I found out that I would be the new Lazygamer intern. Little did I know that I would be forced to do all sorts of horrible things daily. I really thought the community would have my back. How could they not support the newcomer... the underdog? How wrong I was.
I don’t think I had ever touched an indie game until I received a bundle of them from a friend. There were gems like Hotline Miami, Limbo, and Thomas Was Alone. It was an incredibly refreshing experience, something I honestly never expected. Thomas Was Alone in particular really drew me in, giving blocks more personality than most characters I’ve played as in other games. It’s now available on mobile platforms.
