There’s nothing quite as stress relieving as this – just shooting everything first, and asking questions later. Don’t want zombie cooties? Well then get out your Android phones and tablets, and follow along with me as I explore 6 of the finest zombie shooting games Google Play has to offer.

Secret Maryo Chronicles – Open Source Remake Of Golden Age Mario

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. Everything about this project screams “fan-made Mario clone”.

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.

There are some games that, while not the best games when played alone, make for great party games. Would you sit there and play them by yourself? Probably not. But get a group of friends together, and you just might have the time of your life playing them. While most games are going the way of multiplayer gaming over the Internet, there are still some gems floating around out there.

4 Interesting Games You Can Help Bring to the Steam Platform

Sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have shown huge community support towards game-related projects. Online gaming seems as big as it’s ever been, and with new MMOs and PC releases around every corner it doesn’t seem like the trend will come to a screeching halt anytime soon. Steam, King over all PC alternatives, has definitely taken notice to this. Greenlight is a community spotlight that allows developers to introduce their games to Steam users.

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.

If I tell you “this is a great game for your phone, and it’s all about using a slingshot,” one game will instantly come to mind. Right? Well, it turns out there are ways to use slingshot and slinging that result in a unique game that’s nothing like Angry Birds at all: One is a racing game with gorgeous graphics and the simplest controls imaginable, while the other does have you shoot things with a slingshot but isn’t like Angry Birds in any other way.

Microsoft unveiled its next-generation console on May 21, 2013. Officially called the Xbox One — and not Xbox 720, Xbox Infinity, or Xbox Next, all of which were rumored — the new console is the final piece of the emerging next-gen puzzle. 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.

Not everyone has the time or privilege to be able to install a dedicated emulator, and there’s no reason to because writing that article made me realize just how many online emulation stations there really are.

I love travelling, and if I can get my hands on a good road trip, you won’t hear me asking for anything else. Alas, I live in a tiny country, and I also have a job which does not play well with the Internet-free wilderness or the immense amount of money such a trip would cost, so I usually have no choice but to tame my travel hunger by looking at pictures and reading about far-away places. Another great way to satisfy your itchy feet are travel games.

My 4 Favorite Games For The Lost And Forgotten Sega Saturn

The Saturn was the console that pretty much forced Sega out of the console making business. Sure, it managed to push the Dreamcast to market after, but consumers were so burned by the botched launch of the Saturn, that it was simply a lamb led to slaughter. While that the Dreamcast was a fantastic console, there was nothing Sega could have done with it to bring consumers back to their side again.

Google Maps is an essential tool for anyone planning a day trip or holiday, providing a clear yet detailed overview of locations and how to reach them. More than that it provides a simple way for all of us to find our literal place in the world, though it cannot help with the more figurative notion of belonging. Google Maps was already amazing, and then a few years after its launch Google Street View was added to the mix.

From moving installed games to other hard drives without re-downloading them to managing your game backlog and seeing just how much money your Steam library is worth, these tools add a variety of missing features. Steam has gradually added features you once needed third-party programs for.

AR Games: Is This The Future of Gaming?

How this will relate to gaming remains to be seen, but there are already a large variety of AR games to choose from regardless of your mobile OS. I’ve spent some serious time over the past week putting some of the most popular implementations through their paces on my iPhone in the hope to find out if AR really is the future or not.

It’s unusual for me to find a platform game that I would call fun (see my review of ilomilo for more on this), even more unusual that I should return to it again and again. But that is exactly what has been happening with Call of Carlos, a free Windows Phone game that features a jumping diamond miner, his versatile pickaxe and some fast-rising molten lava! Surely it can’t be the promise of virtual riches as Carlos collects the diamonds, so what is the attraction?

Now you’re back at the respawn point – you’d better know how to get back home from there! Building a door is a good way to keep this from happening, but that only works if you stay underground or in a very tightly constructed fort.

If there is one thing licensed games are not typically known for, it’s quality. More often than not, licensed games are rushed to market to coincide with a movie or other major media release. It’s not the developers fault, but sometimes the business side of gaming gets ahead of actually delivering quality games. However, there are some licensed games that actually break the mold and bring a shocking level of quality.

As an avid League of Legends player for the past year, I’d be a complete liar to say I haven’t learned my fair share about the game purely from copying the strategies of others. That’s fine though, because the League of Legends community seems incredibly generous in sharing their builds and other ideas. The nature of eSports, with all the streaming and tournaments, practically embraces this copycat play style.

Playing my NES, SNES, and Genesis every day became a thing of the past once I got my hands on Wave Race 64, Super Mario 64, and Diddy Kong Racing. I never picked those consoles up again. The Nintendo 64 is definitely one of the best gaming consoles of all time.
