Counter-Strike 1.6, with multiplayer, gets unofficial Android port

Counter-Strike 1.6, with multiplayer, gets unofficial Android port

We've seen a couple of classic PC games ported to mobile, including some on Android, but most of them either involved point-and-touch gameplay or not so much twitch action. Porting an FPS title, especially an iconic one like Counter-Strike, has probably far from the dreams of game studios and publishers. And so a lone developer by the name of Alibek Omarov, or a1batross on GitHub, took it upon himself to do what no one has done before: to make Counter-Strike 1.6 work on Android in all its glory, including multiplayer support.

Fable Legends is really gone for good, refunds going out

Fable Legends is really gone for good, refunds going out

Some legends just aren't meant to be and simply fade with the passing of time. If there were any hope that Lionhead Studios' stillborn cooperative online action game would live on, those were now all dashed. As of 13th of April, 2016, Fable Legends is no more. Considering it never really got a public release, some would probably say it never really was in the first place. The one sliver of good news is that at least those who made in-game purchases will all be refunded in due time.

Flappy Bird has been ported to…an ecig

Flappy Bird has been ported to…an ecig

The Flappy Bird hysteria has died down, the app is still absent from the app stores (excluding the bajillion knockoff apps), and yet the game hasn't disappeared from our hearts and porting efforts. The most recent port involves a particularly large e-cigarette with an equally large black-and-white display, as well as a trio of buttons...and the fixings needed to play a tiny, probably frustrating game of Flappy Bird.

Rock Band 4 for PC scrapped as funding campaign falls short

Rock Band 4 for PC scrapped as funding campaign falls short

Bad news, folks. Harmonix has scrapped plans to bring Rock Band 4 to PC (for now, at least) due to the funding campaign's failure to meet its goal. The developer had sought funding on Fig, where it had a goal of $1.5 million with plans to contribute the other needed $500,000 itself if the campaign was fully funded. As of yesterday’s deadline, Harmonix has raised about half its goal at $792,000, and it says it won't be proceeding as a result.

Facebook: Messenger basketball game played by many, mastered by few

Facebook: Messenger basketball game played by many, mastered by few

Last month, Facebook updated Messenger with a “hidden” basketball game in honor of March Madness, and now it is back with some stats: as expected, tens of millions of people played the game, which simply involves swiping your finger to flick a basketball into a basket. What wasn’t expected, though, is how terrible most of us are at the game. According to the social network, not even 1-percent of users who played reached a “best score” of 30 or more.

Or at least that what he's/you're supposed to be. As the latest trailer, a proper cinematic trailer, for DOOM tries to prove. No, not the old Doom, not Doom 2, not even Doom 3, but just plain DOOM. Of course, that means lots of demons, guns, gore, and mutilation to fill your adrenaline-rushing, palpitating heart.

Pokemon GO field test goes live in Japan, screens and video leak

Pokemon GO field test goes live in Japan, screens and video leak

For Pokemon fans, Pokemon GO might yet be the most exciting incarnation of the title yet. Although it will hardly match up to imagination or even the anime series, it will be the closest you'll be able to get to the real thing until the day technology catches up with fantasy. The field test in Japan has gone live, meaning invites and APKs have rolled out to the selected few. And, braving the threat of the banhammer, some of those have leaked out screenshots of the app's interface as well as a video of the game's first few moments.
