Someone with apparent links to Microsoft's gaming division has made some big claims about its follow up to the Xbox 360, claiming it'll be called the Xbox Loop and is a small, cheap thing with loads of Kinect functionality. Great.
Not sure how to classify Monster Burner. It's kinda sorta like a fantasy medievalist interpretation of Space Invaders. But it has another whacky dynamic at play, deeply rooted in puzzles, dominoes and fireworks.
As if the tablet-based controller concept of Wii U wasn't bonkers enough, Nintendo is also considering bringing crazy touchscreen nonsense to the original Wii, revealed by a patent for a strange clip-on Wii Remote touchscreen.
I haven't diddled around Azeroth in a while, but let's just say I know my way around a 25-man. And Mad Catz's new Cyborg M.M.O.7. gaming mouse looks like it's good enough to play at a pretty elite level.
Blimey, where did the time go? Last night we settled on the sofa to check out this new release, Aquaria, and before we knew it four hours had passed and the battery on the iPad was utterly depleted. Also, our mug of cocoa had gone cold.
Sony filed a series of patents recently that would add biometric sensors to PlayStation 3 controllers and to a handheld resembling the Playstation Vita. How will gaming change when your console knows how you feel?

We knew this day would come. Duke Nukem Forever might have been a bona-fide turkey on the next-gen consoles, but the source material still has its fans. Rebirthing the original classic on the Android platform, Duke Nukem 3D is proof positive that you can't keep a good ol' boy down.
Yes, pedants, this game was released well over a month ago. But despite some very positive reviews, Rogue Sky has made nary a dent on the App Store charts. Let's revisit this charming slice of whimsy and see if we can give it a little boost, shall we? Consider it a public service for indie games development.
It's that time of year again. Where kids are chucking eggs at you in the street. Or lighting paper bags filled with dog turds on your doorstep, then ringing the bell and watching from the bushes as you frantically stamp on the poo inferno threatening to engulf your house. Such fond memories.
You wouldn't think an online game that has players painstakingly adjusting bezier handles to reshape letters from various fonts would be remotely interesting.
