Contributed By CJ   A little while ago Sony unveiled the Vita TV and surprised everyone. A slice of Sony’s latest handheld which hasn’t set the world on fire sales wise, yet has an army of very passionate fans. I picked one up a few months back and have really enjoyed it. Not just for stuff like Persona 4 – which looks superb – the cross-play stuff I’ve already bought on PS3, but for those beautiful little gems from PS1 [...]

Definitely one of the most unique experiences in my life to date! I was surrounded by enthusiastic gamers all showing their feelings towards games in different ways. Whether it was stockpiling a collection of retro merchandise from Bubble Bobble t-shirts, dressing up as Doom guy, facing off in tournaments or even attempting to break world records; this was a true event for gamers. Upon arriving at EventCity, Manchester: I was nearly sucked into a gaming cyclone as swarms of people [...]

Its simple, it’s addictive, and it’s free… or is it? The creation of the app market has lead to an unprecedented amount of free to play, yet costly to win games. Though they are often free to download, many of these tempting offerings are slowly by surely ridding many gamers first of their patience and then of their hard earned cash. Out of all of the free to play games out there none seems to have as much of a [...]

Contributed by HelenBaby The Curiosity Cube will need no introduction to many of you. To those of you who don’t know, it is the first game/project by independent gaming company 22Cans. An addictive tap-athon, players earn virtual currency by tapping/breaking the tiny little cubes that, together, make up a massive cube. Players score extra for combo-chains which are generated through tapping the cubes accurately. But the ultimate goal of the project isn’t to be the one to amass the most [...]
