Shinra released SDK for building creating cloud games

Shinra released SDK for building creating cloud games

Unless you're a Final Fantasy fan or at least an avid gamer, the company's name might mean little to you. That might be well and good since Shinra Technologies barely has anything to do with the game franchise, other than being spun off from Square Enix. And unlike its in-game counterpart, Shinra isn't obsessed with sucking the world dry of resources. Instead, it is actually interested in building worlds. Virtual worlds, that is. And its first plan of action to make available the Community Cloud Development Kit to indie game developers for free.

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Here's why being acquired by a company like Razer is great: not only will OUYA continue to be made in hardware form, the software will be expanding. According to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, Razer has acquired the software assets of OUYA and will start this party off right - by integrating OUYA games and their store into the Razer Forge TV - that's their Android TV device revealed earlier this year at CES 2015. Not only that, but the OUYA gaming console will continue to live on, and maybe even grow!

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

In an effort to promote his special appearance in a wrestling video game (WWE 2K16), Arnold Schwarzenegger has recreated his role as the Terminator from T2: Judgement Day. It is here that he re-enters the biker bar in the nude, demanding of a biker: "I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle." Of course this biker and the rest of the patrons of the bar are all wrestlers - but that's not going to change anything, really. He'll still get the cigar jammed into his chest, and we can assume the rest of the carnage will follow.

Pi-Boy Classic is an homage to the Gameboy

If you are looking for your next project to work on, something cool has turned up over at Thingiverse called the Pi-Boy Classic.

China completely opens wide its doors to gaming consoles

China completely opens wide its doors to gaming consoles

In late 2014, China lifted an almost 13 year old ban that prevented gaming consoles from being sold anywhere in the country. But that new freedom came with one caveat: the companies making and selling these consoles can only do business in one specialized area. Now China is removing even that, which will allow the likes of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to sell their popular gaming hardware anywhere in the country. More than giving these foreign companies a new cash cow, this could also change the landscape of gaming in China, which is heavily slanted towards mobiles and PCs.

Fallout Shelter Android release this August with Mr. Handy

Smash hit mobile app Fallout Shelter, from the folks that brought you Fallout, is coming to Android.

Needless to say, it's hyped up - and of course a very fine game in its own right.

Half-Life on Android-powered LG G Watch? This modder made it happen

Half-Life on Android-powered LG G Watch? This modder made it happen

You can play Doom just about anywhere these days, from ATM machines, to graphing calculators, to even inside Doom itself. That means it's gotten boring. We need to spice up this whole FPS game on random devices/appliances thing, and it's time we went with a more modern classic, like Half-Life. Modder Dave Bennett already has the right idea, getting the Valve-made shooter to run on an Android-powered LG G Watch.
