I Bounced Off FF7: Ever Crisis In a Few Days

I was one of the first to download, but something about Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis just hasn’t clicked.  Some of you will know that I’m a Final Fantasy 7 superfan. This remake-but-not was seemingly made for me and me alone. And yet in translation to a gacha mobile game, it has lost some of its soul. The gang are all there, and they look great. And the story beats are pretty well represented too, even if you’re racing through…

The iPhone Gives Gamers the Experience They Want

My wife has never played a lot of video games. But every night she settles in with her iPhone for a few minutes and announces it is officially “Toy Blast” time.

It helps us work, helps us communicate, and it lets us play what…

Today, although these larger setups are still popular and can often be found in gamers’ homes, mobile games are becoming more and more popular.

Microsoft’s Mobile Store Is a Hard Sell

There’s only one thing you can say for certain about the current mobile phone gaming market: the stores are pretty locked in. It’s Google Play or it’s Apple’s App Store. Microsoft’s plans for a third alternative is going to have an uphill struggle. This has slowly been coming out over the course of the company’s purchase of Activision. One of the big reasons for the purchase – on top of Call of Duty and hundreds of other Game Pass friendly…

The Walking Dead – Ten Years On

It was ten years ago that the first series of Telltale’s The Walking Dead changed how we think about those kinds of video games. And maybe all video games. Two seasons into the TV series, fans found a new way of looking at the fictional Walker-fied universe – but it didn’t stop there. Thanks to being available on every single device in existence, as well as the episodic format, it quickly spread to a more casual audience. It wasn’t the…

When a popular hardcore IP launches on mobile it’s always cause for concern. Remember when EA revived a bunch of beloved franchises like Dungeon Keeper for mobile and completely messed it up? Unfortunately, yes. we remember that. But the issue there is more about chasing what’s immediately popular. It isn’t necessarily about retooling…

Pokémon Presents | 2.27.2022 (video)

Today, there was a Pokémon Presents video! Its Pokémon Day! Check out the video below and then come back for some thoughts on it. Happy Pokémon Day!

There were a lot of updates to the mobile/Switch spinoffs and then a small update for Brillant Diamond/Shining Pearl and a slightly bigger update for Pokémon Arceus. It seemed pretty disappointing… And then! A live action trailer started. I admit I thought it was…

My Time at Portia Mobile Port a Welcome Addition

As we reported earlier this year, My Time at Portia - the fantastic farming and life simulation game - was heading to mobile after having a very successful run on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and Steam. We've been playing with the mobile build for well over a week now, and while we obviously haven't made it through everything the game has to offer, we have played our fair share and can easily tell you how this game ports over to Android and iOS.
