Sonic the Hedgehog Coming to Android, iOS, Xbox 360, PlayStation, and MORE!

Sonic the Hedgehog Coming to Android, iOS, Xbox 360, PlayStation, and MORE!

It appears that the strangest of all Sonic the Hedgehog titles: Sonic CD, will be the first title to grace the gears of Android, iOS, Xbox 360, PlayStation Network, Windows PC, and Windows Phone soon. While we're certainly excited that everyone's favorite hedgehog will be coming to a whole mess of platforms, we've got to jump back at the idea that it wasn't Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, or even Sonic Adventure that came out first, we're glad that at least one of the THIRTY Sonic the Hedgehog titles will make its way to every single one of our favorite platforms - we can play anywhere!

GameStop tries to Make it Right with “Coupon-Gate” Customers

GameStop tries to Make it Right with “Coupon-Gate” Customers

Not even a week has passed since some heavy controversy surrounding GameStop and "Coupon-Gate" and they're already aiming to patch things up with customers with a coupon and a gift card - nice of them, yes? It was less than a week ago that Gamestop discovered one of the PC games they'd been carrying, "Deus Ex: Human Revolution", had inside its box a coupon for OnLive, one of GameStop's newest competitors. What ensued was a series of actions that, in the end, (or at least we hope this is the end,) had GameStop apologizing to their customers and offering them both a $50 gift card and a Buy Two, Get One Free used game purchase coupon. Will this be enough?

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Gameplay Demo Revealed [Video]

The massively epic story of Ezio, an Italian assassin whose story will be completed here in the third of three Assassin's Creed video game, is today revealed in video form.

Samsung Series 7 700G Gamer Laptop Announced

When you're getting prepared for Diablo III which, for the record, we still expect to be coming out sometime before the end of 2011, you've got several things to think about. One of these things is: how will you earn enough money in the real world so that when the game is released, you'll be able to call in sick for several months? Second, and MAYBE more importantly, what kind of computer will you be playing the game on? Samsung has your answer - and you can play other games here too - with the Series 7 Gamer.

Android Games for Freddy Krueger, Night of the Living Dead, and Halloween Coming Soon

Android Games for Freddy Krueger, Night of the Living Dead, and Halloween Coming Soon

Android has come a LONG WAY in a just a couple of years, especially when it comes to mobile applications. Ease in developing for a single device on Apple has kept developers from moving to the Android operating system basically since its inception due to the relative difficulty in creating apps that work on a multitude of devices running the same OS. That time has all but ended, if you ask me, giant games and names such as the following three continuing to pave the way for the biggest and the best: In-Fusio presents Night of the Living Dead tower defense game, Freddy Krueger's Wallbreaker, and Halloween Pinball HD.

Quake 3 Video Game Challenge Laid Down with “Scrolls” Name as Prize

So there's this guy by the name of Notch, aka Markus "Notch" Persson, he's one of the original creators of the massively popular game Minecraft. Notch's developer group Mojang is currently in a trademark dispute with another group of developers by the name of Bethesda Softworks. The latter has threatened to sue the former because Mojang's new game by the name of "Scrolls" apparently doesn't seem far enough away from Bethesda's "The Elder Scrolls," a trademarked name they currently own. What Notch of Mojang here is suggesting is that a team of his best "warriors" and a team of Bethesda's best "warriors" go head to head in the first-person-shooter game Quake 3, the winner dropping their side of the dispute.

Nintendo 3DS Price Cut to $169.99 Today

Nintendo 3DS Price Cut to $169.99 Today

Whenever there's a price cut of such a magnitude for a device of such importance as the Nintendo 3DS, one would expect there to be a new device coming out OR for the company selling the device in question to be in some sort of big trouble. What we're looking at here instead is a price cut before a brand new color combination is released for the casing on this device. This leads us to believe that either Nintendo had always planned to lower the price to this point immediately before the Flame Red color release OR both the color combination and the price point are now in place to make a renewed move for higher sales in the face of a sinking traditional games market.

Rovio Launches Angry Birds Mooncakes and Barrage of Additional Products

In celebration of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival - otherwise known as the Moon Festival, Rovio has decided to release some signature shaped Angry Birds Mooncakes alongside a series of new products.

The mooncakes are available in Chinese confectionary stores now in custom male/female bags which are reusable then by the average super-chic kiddo who might want to bring their home-made lunch to school in bright red. These cakes also reveal a lady version of the classic red bird, this perhaps pointing toward a new type of bird to be slingshot in the future Seasons expansions.
