Move Over, Sim City: The Best City Building Games for iOS

When I decided to highlight the best city building games on the App Store, I didn’t realise what a shortage of quality titles there were. Unfortunately progress has been slow for the city building genre on iOS, despite the platform’s ability to monetize well-executed concepts. That’s not to say there’s nothing to sink your teeth into if your mayoral urges take over, though you might want to reconsider what to expect from a city building game on your iPhone or iPad if you’ve been spoiled by Maxis in the past.

5 Most Heartwrenching Deaths In Video Game History

As with any medium where story is an integral part, death is inevitable. In the case of video games, all too often, death is something we just glance over. Player characters die all the time, only to respawn and go back at the part again. In shooters like Call of Duty, we cut down thousands of enemies without even batting an eye. Sometimes it gets to the point where we don’t even take death seriously at all. However, there are some rare, special instances where the death of a character brings your world to a screeching halt.

Destroy The Web: Shoot Things You Dislike, For Fun and Profit [Firefox, Chrome]

Tired of seeing stuff you hate on the web? Shoot it. Destroy the web is a stress-relieving diversion that allows you to target elements of any site you dislike, leaving destruction and high scores in your wake. Even if you don’t have Bieber-related psychosis this could prove relaxing: taking a few moments from your research in order to destroy it entirely never hurt anyone.

How to Run Old Games & Software in Windows 8

One of Microsoft’s big strengths — and weaknesses — is their focus on backwards compatibility. Most Windows applications will work just fine on Windows 8. This is especially true if they worked on Windows 7, as Windows 8 is very similar to Windows 7. Some old games and software, particularly ones designed for older operating systems like Windows XP, Windows 98, or DOS, may not work properly out of the box. The below tips apply to all different types of software and will help you get an idea what the problem is.

Amazing Games You Can Play on the Raspberry Pi without Emulation

You can probably see where I’m going with this, but I’ll spell it out just in case. A few nights ago I decided that rather than play Civilization V on my PC, I would look for a version that I could play on my Raspberry Pi? Thus began a quest to find not only a version of Civilization that might run (perhaps using an MS-DOS emulator), but pretty much any game that would run natively on the Raspberry Pi…

5 Games You Can Play For Over 100 Hours – That’s Value!

One of the many traits unique to video games is the sheer volume of entertainment a game can provide. While a movie is over in two hours on average, and a TV show may offer ten to twenty hours in a season, an amazing game can be played for hundreds of hours. Because many games have no final end, there are many choices, but a few titles stand out for their incredible tendency to drag almost everyone who plays them deep into their world. These games are so enthralling they can ruin report cards, strain marriages and make you want to call in sick for work – consider yourself warned!

The Vita Still Lives – 5 Incredible Games Shown At E3

E3 may have come and gone over a month ago, but there is one thing that happened at the giant press event that I don’t feel got the attention it deserved: the range of Vita games shown off. Sony kind of had them tucked away in the back corner of their booth. Obviously, the main focus for Sony was getting its PlayStation 4 in front of as many people as possible, but I can’t help but feel like it dropped the ball with the lack of attention it gave its Vita.

4 Examples Of Video Games With Romance Done The Right Way

In most forms of entertainment, romance is a key part of the story. Even horror movies tend to have some sort of hidden or not so hidden romance tucked away in the story. Video games tend to escape this in many cases, as the storytelling in video games has not evolved as well as some of the other mediums. After all, it’s a pretty new way for people to tell stories, so it has not has much time to mature. That being said, there are some examples of video games with romance.

Do you know about some of the random, obscure consoles that came out back in the day and somewhat recently? Nintendo and Sony were not always the only game in town, it just happens that they are the ones to stick it out through the hard times. The original GameBoy may have been what truly blew the handheld market, but without some of these lesser-known handhelds, the market may have never exploded in the same way it has today.

4 Fantastic Video Games Based On Dungeons And Dragons

If I mentioned tabletop RPGs to you, what is the first one that pops into your head? If I had to guess, I would assume you are thinking of Dungeons and Dragons. Sure, some people might think of Warhammer or Shadowrun, but for most outside of the tabletop space, Dungeons and Dragons is the first game they think of. In fact, for many people, it might even be the only game in the genre they know at all. As with most popular things, there are plenty of video games out there based on the Dungeons and Dragon universe. Some are not so good, and some are downright fantastic, even if you are not a fan of the tabletop version of the game.

6 Gorgeous, Minimalistic Android Games You’ll Keep Coming Back To

There is no better design for smartphones and mobile devices than minimalism. The medium’s very nature requires limitations on screen space and power usage, so you really get the most bang-for-your-buck with modern designs – especially for mobile gaming. If you want cutting-edge graphics, look to the console wars. But for Android games? I look to minimalism. Everything is reduced to its most core components, and when that’s applied to both gameplay and interface, you end up with games that are easy to play and pleasant on the eyes.
