Tower N’ Trolls Versus Fieldrunners 2: The Battle Of The Tower Defense Games

Tower defense games are one of the most well-suited genres for playing on the go. Relative to other genres, they are fairly passive, and they allow the player to plant their towers, defend their bases, and only half focus. Today, we’re putting two of the more popular tower defense games on the App Store head-to-head: in an interesting clash we have Fieldrunners 2, which comes with a $2.99 price tag, and Towers N’ Trolls, which is a free-to-play.

What’s The Real Value Of Games Bundled With Video Cards?

AMD fired a shot across Nvidia’s bow in 2012 by introducing the “Never Settle” bundle. The purpose was simple; attract games to AMD video cards providing them with free games like Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Sleeping Dogs. Nvidia has responded with its free-to-play bundle, which lures in gamers by offering free credits that can be redeemed for bonuses in games like Hawken, Planetside 2 and World Of Tanks.

2 Ultra-Fast Racing Games That Truly Test Your Driving Abilities

I came across a couple of racing games I hadn’t spotted on SourceForge before. They’re both well rated by the user base there, and they both promised to offer realistic physics engines that would make it feel like you’re really racing a sweet ride in the case of X Speed Race, and an insanely fast race car in the motorsport racing sim called Speed Dreams.

PS4 vs Xbox One: 5 Reasons To Buy The PS4

E3 2013 marked the moment when the next-generation truly began, with all three contenders — the PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, and Wii U — revealed in full. The Wii U is already on the market (and hardly selling), which leaves a battle royale brewing between the PlayStation 4 from Sony and the Xbox One from Microsoft. Both consoles will be released before the end of 2013, and you can pre-order either one right now. But which should you choose?

PS4 vs Xbox One: 5 Reasons To Buy The Xbox One

This year’s E3 felt almost like it was over before it began. Though the conference lasts for days, both Microsoft and Sony made their announcements before the doors opened, showing not just hardware but also their lineup of launch and near-launch titles. In doing so, each company has ignited a new chapter in the console war. While an ideal gamer’s den will have both, most people don’t have the money or need to grab two consoles at launch, so a choice must be made; Xbox One or PS4? I’ve put my money down for the Xbox, and here’s why.

4 Video Games That Will Help You Lose Weight

All too often, people who are not gamers have this idea that individuals who choose to spend their time playing video games are lazy. Sure, we like to sit around with a controller in our hand and be whisked away to a fantasy world, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy getting active as well. All video games are strenuous on the mind, but some games can actually give you quite the workout.

Try a new spin on a platform classic. With Mario-style sidescrolling, cartoon-style graphics and music any gamer should find familiar, the open source Secret Maryo Chronicles is a worthwhile diversion for any computer owner. Even better, you can easily create your own Maryo levels. The name “Secret Maryo Chronicles” isn’t subtle, but neither is the game itself.

Love Asynchronous Multiplayer But Hate Word Games? You’ll Love These [iOS]

It all really blew up with the popularity of Words With Friends, and since then a huge number of games have been released to take advantage of the “with friends” turn-based multiplayer system. Some have come from Zynga, the original creators of Words With Friends, and some have come from other developers. Regardless of who is making the games, more keep coming, and a few of them are really good. The games on this list feature asynchronous multiplayer, but instead of being simple word games, this list features quite a bit more action.

6 Things To Do With Your Wii U While Waiting For New Games

I must admit that the Nintendo Wii U, though I love it, hasn’t done as well as I’d hoped. The problem is simple. Games – there are none! All of the major releases I (and many others) were excited for, like Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends, have been delayed and won’t be showing up until at least August. A console with no games to play isn’t great, but that doesn’t mean your Wii U has to collect dust.

Once launched the Xbox One will go head to head with the PS4 from Sony and (to a lesser extent) the Wii U from Nintendo.

7 Video Games So Hard They Will Make You Want To Throw Your Controller

One of the major staples of old school video games is the incredible difficulty. I’ve talked about the level of challenge in older games before in an article about the things I miss most from classic games, and while the challenge is great, some games take it a little too far. I’m not saying hard games are bad, but some of them can be downright frustrating.
