Today I bring you 16 new iPhone game reviews: one for the original FallDown! and 15 of its clones. All iOS games will now be reviewed on an iPhone 5 with the latest OS. There are plenty more clones to sift through, so expect more reviews soon!
Happy New Year! Today we have a new appreciation of terrible artwork. This time it’s for Metro-Cross, a game from the mid-80’s that features a goofy looking skater wearing terrible clothing on its cover. Check it out and decide for yourself how bad it is!
Before their massive hit Temple Run, Imangi Studios was a small, simple developer that made average casual games. In today’s update, I review their full library of games (excluding Temple Run, which will come in a different review later).
On December 21st, 2012, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre released a statement accusing the video game industry to be the cause of the recent Sandy Hook shooting, along with all other violent acts involving guns. LaPierre refers to video games as “vicious” and “violent” and defines the (what he would probably call) glorification of violence the filthiest form of pornography. While I cannot speak for everybody and I have not myself conducted any tests or surveys that link video game violence to psychopaths or criminals (even though it has been proven by other studies to not have a huge correlation between the two), I can share my personal experience with my mental disorder. The shooter of the Sandy Hook incident was revealed to have a mental disorder, as well, and although I do not know the specifications of the condition he had, or if video games had influenced him, I can reveal personally that video games and other violent medias have not lead me to be a violent person, even though I enjoy extremely aggressive and violent games. In this editorial, I tell my story of how having a mental disorder actually helped me understand games better, and how they do not influence my mind in a negative way.
I’ve added a new page to the top header: Connect. This page has links to everywhere you can find Gamer Sage on the net! I’ve also reviewed the library of games from Halfbrick Studios for iOS, including five new reviews. and unfortunately, the forums have been shut down since they were not used and were causing internal problems for the site.
Today I’ve added a new editorial, detailing what can improve Facebook games and attract more players. I’ve also updated the About page to include Gamer Sage’s new tagline: All gaming horizons. What this means is that this site will cover all aspects of different games and subtypes of gaming, including console, handheld, Facebook, social, Flash, and mobile games.
Today I am introducing a new review format for mobile games. Since most of these apps are very simple, smaller games, instead of having an individual page for each, I will be reviewing them by developer. For example, each developer will have its own page, with all of their game reviews on it, plus an overall critique of the studios themselves.
To start off this new format, I also introduce the site’s first Android reviews! Today’s developer is Batman Game, which currently have three games available on Google Play.
A few behind the scenes changes have been made, so the site should run smoother, and I’ve also updated the footer.
I’ve also updated the Collection page to fix a few game titles and put them in alphabetical order, plus adding 9 new games, bringing it to a total of 283.
Today I’ve added 6 new reviews for Fruit Ninja clones, bringing the total count to 14!
The Tiny Wings review/clone page now has three more reviews! My game collection has also been updated to add these games, with a total count of 274!
*F-Zero GX for Gamecube
*Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for PS3
*Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy, Infected, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade for PSP
*The Maw, R-Type Dimensions for XBLA
*The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for DSiWare
Big review update today with reviews for 7 new clones of Tiny Wings on the iOS platform! I also now own a GameCube and an MP3 player powered by Android, so expect reviews from those two platforms soon. I also updated my game collection page with 8 new games.
