Zynga Continues Domination by Transforming Area/Code into New York Studio

Zynga Continues Domination by Transforming Area/Code into New York Studio

That's right, they've assimilated game designers "Area/Code" and have begun to add their biological and technological distinctiveness to their own. This New York group will now become Zynga New York. Social gaming will now commence with a very ironic conglomerating of many design groups into one. Zynga also has offices in Boston, San Francisco, Beijing, Austin, Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Dallas. Each of these locations, other than San Francisco, were once smaller games companies that have now been swallowed by, (not dismantled, as other eviler companies might have done,) by Zynga.

Angry Birds Valentines Day Edition Coming Up Next

The newest edition of the massively successful mobile phone game Angry Birds is set to come out Valentine's Day with a special pink addition to what we're pretty sure will be the Seasons version of the game. Seasons already has Christmas and Halloween sets of levels, and this love-based new set would fit perfectly in the timeline. This news was released by DW-TV (Deutsche Welle) via YouTube where the personality speaking notes that "The designers and game developers at Rovio are currently working on new versions of their game, like this update in pink, due to come on the market on February the 14th - Valentine's Day."

iPhone and iPad RPG Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden Announced by Gameloft

iPhone and iPad RPG Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden Announced by Gameloft

Behold one epic looking game. This sort of game is what makes it worth having an iPad, if you ask me. This game is what IntoMobile is calling a Legend of Zelda clone, and I'm inclined to agree. I'm NOT inclined to protest though, as such a game as that might not be out for ages and ages. Now is the age of Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden. A young fellow by the name of Ayden is chosen by the god Uryah to save the kingdom of Lasgalen from no less than the Apocalypse. How will you do such a monumental task? You'll ride your horse and break some ice with a big glove, of course!

Real Life Frogger Goes Ever So Slightly Bad

Real Life Frogger Goes Ever So Slightly Bad

If you know anything about the history of video games, you know about one of the most maddeningly addictive action puzzle games of all time: Frogger. What you might not know is that this sort of game has been played by real people more than once - most recently just a couple of days ago in South Carolina by a man and his friends. He didn't exactly get crunched, but he didn't really make it all the way across, either, getting hit by a Lexus SUV on his way across. This should remind you of two relatively famous reenactments of similar nature: Seinfeld and the Prodigy. Their respective games (or terrible lapses in judgement) went way better (or funnier, at least.)

Happy Holidays from Blizzard Entertainment

Happy Holidays from Blizzard Entertainment

Oh it's nearly holiday time, or whatever you wanna say, and Blizzard Entertainment is definitely attaching itself to the Christmas with three heartily fancy cards that you can send to your friends, enemies, and Facebook. There's one for World of Warcraft, there's one for Starcraft II, and there's one for - YES - Diablo III. You'll find plenty of Santa inside, guns and death as well, and one gigantic barbarian that seems more intent on murdering you than giving you a positive present.

Activision Sues Former Infinity Ward Heads AND Electronic Arts (EA)

Activision Sues Former Infinity Ward Heads AND Electronic Arts (EA)

Harsh! Looks like Activision is taking a lawsuit it's filed with former Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West to another level by amending their complaint to include EA as well. This complaint amendment was written and sent out yesterday to the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles, the original claim being filed way back in April. Activision alleges that these two former Infinity Ward fellows along with EA secretly discussed (way back into July 2009) the possibility of creating an independent game studio, and in doing so, would both end the Call of Duty line of warfare games and drain Activision of it's talent.

Wii Speak Phased Out by Nintendo …Maybe

Wii Speak Phased Out by Nintendo …Maybe

Just about a half a month ago, we reported the fact that Nintendo was asking developers of the game Conduit 2 to not utilize Wii Speak in their game. Looks like it was because now, just a couple weeks later, they've announced they're going to completely phase out the Wii Speak peripheral - perhaps to replace it with something neater?
