GeoSociety for iPhone Review : a perfect Pokemon alternative

GeoSociety for iPhone Review : a perfect Pokemon alternative

Recently we've heard a whole lot about the epic release and defamation of Pokemon Yellow for iPhone, a game that turned out to be a scam and was thusly removed from the market. Because this game became so popular it reached the top 10 in the iTunes App Store before it was removed from the market, we decided to go on a hunt for the best Pokemon alternative on the market instead. Turns out there's one that stands out above the best - not necessarily because it commands its own genre, but because it replicates the original Pokemon game so precisely!

Sony Vita OS Review

Sony Vita OS Review

This week we're getting our first look at the Sony PS Vita, a device which is set to be officially set in stores for sale tomorrow, and the first live version of Vita OS. What the Vita operating system represents is not only a new look at handheld gaming, but the prospect of an operating system that is all Sony's own, and as Chris Davies will tell you, one that's more than ready to take on more screens than just the PS Vita. What we'll do here for you is run down and review the operating system on its own as well as specifically as it exists here in its first iteration: on the PS Vita portable PlayStation certified gaming system from Sony.

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.)

Monsters Ate My Condo Review

Monsters Ate My Condo Review

The game known as Monsters Ate My Condo is a $0.99 masterpiece from both developers PikPok and the fine folks at Adult Swim Games. If you're prone to seizures, I must warn you to steer clear of this beast, but if you're a lover of games whose creators clearly spent thousands of sleepless nights perfecting in both form and aesthetic grace, you've got a winner on your hands. It's all monsters and keeping your tower afloat by feeding pieces of it to the monsters from here on out, folks, have fun!

Batman: Arkham City PC Review

Batman: Arkham City PC Review

When you speak about Batman: Arkham City, you speak about not only the next chapter in a line of games that've redefined the superhero genre of video games, but have taken the ultra-immersive nature of the detective / puzzle solving game and have made it intuitive enough to be enjoyable for all - and the graphics are absolutely unmatched. What we've got here is a rig provided by NVIDIA to test this game specifically, an Alienware M17xR3 gaming laptop with a GeForce GTX 580 DirectX 11 GPU inside, this along with the newest set of NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 wireless 3D glasses. It's a very GREEN situation, needless to say, and playing the most advanced game on the market with the most impressive graphics processor on the planet, this is almost a no-brainer.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play Review

Frankly, it's a surprise it's taken them this long. The idea of a PlayStation phone hasn't been so much a persistent rumor as it has a cellular cloud hanging over both Sony and Sony Ericsson. It overshadowed the launch of the PSP Go and has been responsible for untold speculation about terse relations between the divisions. Throw in more pre-announce leaks than average, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has quite the reputation to live up to. Can the first gaming-centric Android smartphone deliver both the polished day-to-day experience we now expect, and live up to the PlayStation branding? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo has a reputation for kooky, eccentric products, and on that front the 3DS is no different. Upgrading the now-familiar clamshell console with a glasses-free 3D display, it promises a new breed of games, impromptu social gaming with StreetPass, and the instant allure of 3D photography and Augmented Reality. Still, while Nintendo has been busy getting its freak on, the mobile gaming market has become a whole lot more serious. Just about every gadget that wants a place in your pocket - your cellphone and PMP included - wants to take care of your gaming needs as well, and so the 3DS has more competition than ever before. Can the console deliver, or do its eccentricities count it out? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Infinity Blade for iPad 2 [REVIEW]

Infinity Blade for iPad 2 [REVIEW]

Let us go forth and review an app made specifically for the Apple mobile platform iOS - this particular update coming hard and downloading fully optimized for iPad 2. This is a game that, in a way, takes everything we learned from games like Final Fantasy, Virtua Fighter, and even the non-video game Dungeons and Dragons, and breaks it down to a touchscreen-based, mobile operating system … masterpiece. It's not the greatest game ever made, and I'll give you a little preview in saying I don't even think I'll play it more than a few times, but is it worth the cash you could potentially lay down on it?

Nintendo DSi XL Review

Nintendo DSi XL Review

It's the DSi on steroids, the portable console for the poorly sighted, for your grandparents, for anyone with big hands and big pockets. On sale in Japan for several months now, the Nintendo DSi XL has only just arrived on North American shores. Not so much a replacement, then, for the DSi as its chubbier sibling; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
