The 10 Best MMOs For The Mac

Gaming on the Mac has always been a bit difficult, and many players turn to Boot Camp as their all-in-one solution for finding great games that work with OS X. This solution has its downsides, however, not the least of which is the annoyance of constantly switching between OS X and Windows. Fortunately, some genres of games now offer a wide enough selection to keep the average Mac gamer happy. Perhaps the best example is the MMO, a hugely popular category that used to ignore the Mac, but, over the last five years, has seen more and more games offer up Mac clients.

Game On: 10 Windows 8 Metro Games You Don’t Want To Miss

Gaming on Windows 8 has also proved a provocative talking point, with people such as Valve chief Gabe Newell declaring that the platform would be “a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space.” Naturally, the vast majority of games that run on Windows 7 will also run on Windows 8 in desktop mode – but what about games for the touchscreen, Modern/Metro mode? In fact, there is a good selection of titles, from platform-specific strategy games to titles ported from iOS and other platforms.

Angry Birds Rio: Still Up There With Rovio’s Best

If there is one game which has defined gaming on the smartphone, it is Angry Birds, which is quite possibly the most addictive smash hit since Tetris. Angry Birds is not just one game anymore. Its developers, Rovio, have now branched off into different incarnations of the Angry Birds universe and now you can even get an officially sanctioned (by George himself) Star Wars Angry Birds, as well as Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space, and Angry Birds Friends. However, the one I am most addicted to is Angry Birds Rio.

Pica Pic Brings Classic Handheld Electronic Games To The Web

Before the original Game Boy arrived on the scene as the 1980s gave way to the 1990s, all eager gamers had to play while out of the house were handheld electronic games that came as part of a single unit. There was no swapping games in and out, you bought the unit, and you were stuck playing that game until such time as you (or, more likely, your parents) bought a replacement. I don’t particularly miss those days, but because they happened during my childhood I have an occasional yearning to revisit them for a dose of nostalgia. Which is where a website called Pica Pic proves its worth.

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.

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!

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.
