PSA: PokeMon apps for iPhone and Android are fake

PSA: PokeMon apps for iPhone and Android are fake

This week the fact that a illegitimate clone of the game PokeMon Yellow (the special Pikachu edition, that is) is busting up the charts in the iTunes App Store charts for most popular download. While the game might download decently, you should note that the vast majority of people who have fallen for the promise of a PokeMon mobile game have found the game to not work in the slightest beyond the start screen. The same is true of Android with any app you download at the moment with the PokeMon name on it: Nintendo has not yet brought the game to the market, so whatever you're downloading - it's not the real deal.

Angry Birds: Space ties with NASA and National Geographic

Angry Birds: Space ties with NASA and National Geographic

Rovio's teaser this past week of the newest Angry Birds release to be known as Angry Birds: Space has this week been given a PR boost by none other than NASA and National Geographic! In an interview with Yahoo Games, Rovio North America general manager had a bit more information on the game, especially in regards to what the game will hold for gameplay. We'd hypothesized that Angry Birds: Space would have at least one launch partner, Samsung's Galaxy Note being amongst them, but now it looks more like Rovio will be going to space much more literally!

Dash Race for iPhone Review

Dash Race for iPhone Review

The game Dash Race is just about the most unique racing game you're going to find on any platform - and I say that having played my fair share. What you'll do in this iPhone-based pencil and grid racing game is draw lines from one square to the next, each player taking turns to see who can best the other in their mathematically calculated set of turns and straightaways. This game is derived from a game that you may have played while wasting time between classes in high school - in this case you won't have to do any of the calculating yourself (unless of course you want to.)

Angry Birds Space teased, may land with Galaxy S III

Angry Birds Space teased, may land with Galaxy S III

The next generation of Angry Birds is right around the corner - a phrase we could say basically any day of the month. But this time it's true insofar as they've announced a brand new concept: Angry Birds Space. This will be an entirely separate game just like Angry Birds Seasons is separate from Angry Birds Rio, and not one whole heck of a lot of information has been revealed thus far. There's a very short teaser out already, and the logo has dropped, but other than that, we're expecting lots of gravity modifications.

Android users beware: Temple Run scams galore

For those of you waiting to play the ultra-popular game Temple Run on your Android device, beware: it's not out yet, and if you've downloaded what you think is an official game, you've been scammed.

Those of you working with iOS on your iPhone or iPad - there's a different story entirely.

Minecraft Lego set revealed

There's a cult classic video game out there right now called Minecraft, and if you've ever played this block-tastic adventure of a puzzler, you know it lends itself perfectly to the real world block toy Lego.

What you're seeing here is the first, and perhaps only, Minecraft lego set ever to be produced.

Max Payne 3 Trailer channels Big Lebowski

Max Payne 3 Trailer channels Big Lebowski

The next installment in the Max Payne series of hard-hitting video games is coming on soon, and as today's newly released trailer suggests, it's going to have a rather familiar story line. The idea that the video and the plotline look but dont necessarily feel like the cult classic film The Big Lebowski comes from Dan Stepleton from GameSpy, and because he's so very, very right, we've gotta go one step further. Have a peek at the trailer in its entirety below as well as some clip-for-clip similarities with the comedy action film.

PS Vita arrives in some stores in USA and games aplenty

If you've not already picked up a PS Vita, today might be your lucky day, as many vendors are receiving an amount of early release Limited Edition bundles for everyone. Though the US release was originally going to have a pre-release featured bundle where you'd have to have pre-ordered in order to get one, Sony has apparently decided to ship enough packages for as many people as wanted to get in on the action early as possible. In addition to prices we've got a full list of games you might pick up outside the full range of PlayStation Portable names which are of course available to you right out of the box - do continue on!

PlayStation Vita pre-release bundles have arrived, pre-orders not needed

While it should speak volumes that in order to get your hands on a PlayStation Vita before it's "official" release in the USA you do not need to have pre-ordered a unit, it may make more sense to focus on the price. Those of you who've pre-ordered a PSVita should be getting the system in your hands today or at the very least sometime this week, while those who did not pre-order the device will be able to head to their local gaming store today and pick one up for the pre-release bundle price.
