Pushed off Notifications

Phones can make us jerks. They let us ignore friends, cancel plans last-minute, and annoy those around us in public. But this month, we got a whole new way to abuse our mobile devices. Unless we can manage how we interrupt each other, it could ruin one of the most promising modern communication mediums: livestreaming. “Josh Constine is live: I’m bored so watch me”… Read More —> Read More

Mr Jump Jumping Onto Our Mobiles | IM PLAYIN

IM PLAYIN discuss Mr Jump.

“One of the latest offerings on the App store, Mr Jump, seems to combine the mechanics for two or three games to create a game that is the best of all of them. Simple in mechanics and design, but complicated enough to make that competitive edge come out. Mr Jump has all the calling cards of a game like Doodle Jump or Candy Crush. A game that can just stay on your phone until that time you feel like beating your high score, or finally unlocking the next level.” —> Read More

Bloodborne Hates Me, So Why Do I Enjoy It So Much?

“Even though Bloodborne offends almost all of my gaming sensibilities and really seems to run like its in pre-alpha condition than a full release title, and even though it looks like a previous generation game and has about as much variation in the first 15+ hours environments as Pac-Man, From Software has managed to refine out the immediate barriers to entry in such a way that Bloodborne is still impressively fun to play.” —> Read More

‘Mortal Kombat X’ Trailer Is Better With The ‘Mortal Kombat’ Movie Theme

Forget the slew of roster reveals, the leaked cinematic cutscenes, and the gloriously disgusting fatalities. Want to get really pumped for Mortal Kombat X? This will do it.

A few days ago, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive unleashed a live-action commercial for the impending fighter, showing every-day people gathering together to form a bloodthirsty hoard that swarmed city streets due to the utterance of a single word: “Fight.” The commercial is short on gameplay footage, but certainly captures the big-event feel surrounding Mortal Kombat X. People want Mortal Kombat, and they want it now.

While it’s a good spot, something not right. The commercial uses System of a Down’s hit “Chop Suey” as a backing track, and while that makes sense – band member Shavo Odadjian directed the video, after all – it’s not hard …

Review: Game of Thrones: Episode 3 The Sword in the Darkness (DarkZero)

Jorge S Fernandez: “When Telltale Games created their videogame adaption of The Walking Dead, they wisely chose to spin off from the original source material to do what they wanted with their original cast. The one exception to this was the first episode, where familiar faces like Glenn and Hershel popped in to give an awkward hello to the fanbase before thankfully disappearing for the rest of the series.” —> Read More

EA Origin Locking Out PCs with Too Many Hardware Configurations

PC gamers who have altered their machine over five times within a 24 hour period might get locked out of Electronic Arts’ online service, Origin.
