I Play SimCity Social for the Writing

Tweet “SimCity Social?” they ask me. “Sure, it’s got the SimCity branding and all, but isn’t it just another click-and-wait Facebook game?” Though I know the look of skepticism it will produce, my reply is, “Oh, I play SimCity Social for the writing.” Since I can feel your dubious smirks already, let me explain this.

When not killing aliens on handhelds, mobile devices, and tablets, the star of A Space Shooter from TriplePoint client Frima Studio is busy promising to kill aliens on browsers and social networks. Then, [...]

Panda Jam is Not a Condiment

Tweet Ethics of making panda jam aside, I think we can all agree on one basic tenet of life: Pandas > Baboons. So when a cranky monkey kidnaps a bunch of adorable baby pandas (no doubt out of jealousy), it’s the sort of thing we’re not willing to stand for. Thankfully, TriplePoint client SGN has [...]

Robot Rising is in Open Beta and We’re All Doomed

Tweet I don’t understand why, when I go to the trouble of warning you guys about these things, nobody takes the proper precautions. I told you last month that the horrible robot sympathizers at Tencent Boston were bringing another robot apocalypse upon our heads, and I was hoping that would get you guys to start building [...]

Thoroughbred World is Surprisingly Portable

Tweet I do not know many things about horses. As a result, years ago, I was terribly injured in a horse-riding accident. That is not a joke; I was honestly sent to the hospital after being thrown from a horse. So, my inexperience with horses is well-documented, but the one thing I did learn is [...]

Free Game of the Day, 8/13/12: Outernauts is Just a Bit More than ‘Pokémon in Space’

Tweet In my first five minutes with Outernauts, I’d chosen a colorful little beast to roam alongside me, battled a pretentious jerk with an anime haircut, and caught my very own whatchamacallit after weakening its defenses and tossing some kind of orb at it. Sound familiar? There’s no denying that Outernauts oozes with that distinctive [...]

Tweet As Frisky Mongoose reported on Tuesday, online retail behemoth Amazon has made its first lumbering steps into the world of video game development. Now that the dust has settled on the out-of-nowhere announcement, the world can sit back and soak in the game itself. Whether to its benefit or detriment, Living Classics will almost [...]

Go Online On, and Do Fine On, Tynon

Tweet Last month, while we were being social online, we told you the story of a social online game that tells you a story. Tynon, a new title from Evony veteran and TriplePoint client uCool, was slated to be out this summer. Hey, wait a minute: it’s this summer right now. And, sure enough — Tynon is out! From the [...]
