Digital Chocolate Launch Blackjack! Buzz

Digital Chocolate, the company behind Kings and Warlords(the producer of which we interviewed at the beginning of this month), launched a new game this week. Blackjack! Buzz, with its slightly quicker edge, is a more social game than the Blackjack you know and love. Taking a cue from the likes of Draw Something, Blackjack! Buzz pairs you against strangers who you must out-score. The higher the cards in your hand are worth, the higher your score when you decide to…

IGN Steal Indie Trailer, Watermark it, Make money off ads

The creator of SpikeDislike 2 probably dreamt of the day IGN would cover his game. He probably should have been more careful what he wished for. Yesterday SoCoder user Jayenkai saw that IGN had uploaded a version of his trailer to their mobile games YouTube channel, a trailer which they'd just downloaded from HIS YouTube channel. As with all IGN videos, they'd placed the IGN watermark onto it - a device used to automatically credit IGN when the video is used elsewhere. They uploaded it to an IGN page, a page with ads...

New Mew Pokemon is… Mewtwo

Popular Japanese gaming mag Coro Coro has released information on the Mewtwo-like image of a Pokemon from X and Y that's shaken up the Poke-world. Has Mewtwo cloned himself? Is this the work of Team Rocket? Could this be Mewthree? The truth is perhaps slightly more confusing. The Pokemon that was revealed last week is in fact Mewtwo, just in a different form.

Death Inc. Resurrected Despite Kickstarter Disappointment

Death Inc., the rather lovely looking strategy game from Ambient Studios, has managed to find life after Kickstarter. The innovative title from a developer consisting of the people behind LittleBigPlanet, Burnout and Fable failed to scrape together even half of the $300,000 they needed from the crowd funding site, but have announced today that the game will be released anyway. And the good news? If you pre-purchase, you’ll be able to play the alpha version of the game right now.…

Hate Halo Multiplayer? Microsoft Release ODST Campaign Edition for Single Player Fans

It's something that some have been asking of Activision and the Call of Duty series for quite some time, but Microsoft are the first to have actually done it. The newly released Halo ODST: Campaign Edition - available now for purchase from the Xbox Marketplace - is a digital-only Games on Demand release, this time without the Halo 3 multiplayer. For the reduced price of 1200 Microsoft Points, players can enter into the Halo world without needing to pay a premium for a section of the game they'll never play.

Microsoft Stock at Second Highest in 6 Months Despite Always-on Rumours

Microsoft have taken a bashing over the last few weeks, partly because of their flat out refusal to discuss their next console and partly because of the actions of Adam Orth, the Microsoft creative director who took to Twitter in defense of an always online console. The top articles on sites like N4G and Reddit have almost consistently housed articles about why Microsoft are doing things wrong. Why, then, is their stock at almost the highest it's been in six months?

Pokemon X & Y: Mewthree revealed?

A mysterious new Mewtwo-esque Pokemon was recently revealed on the official Pokemon website. Could this be a new Mewtwo form, an unexpected evolution or maybe a whole new Pokemon all together? Having stated the fact that: "It is suspected that the newly discovered Pokemon has some sort of connection with the legendary Mewtwo", any of the three theories are plausible. However, this reveal could be more closely related to the new Pokemon games than we think. Having been named "X" and "Y", it is very possible that these names are referring to the X and ...
