So as if Microsoft hadn’t dropped a big enough date-bomb today, Apple too wanted in on the game. Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference will be held between June 10-14, 2013.
Yeah, I know it’s not gonna be a blockbuster console reveal (or could it? ) but we’re sure to hear about iOS7, along with the next generation OSX. But theres plenty of rumours swirling around that maybe we’ll see the iPhone 5S in June.
Excited? Couldn’t care? Comment!
Real Racing 3 is supposed to be even more realistic and will almost be like a console game. It’ll have real tracks such as the Leguna Seca, the latest cars from Porsche, Audi, and Dodge and you can racealong with 22 cars in a race, like real racing! Sounds exciting right? No actual date was announced, but it’s titled as ‘Coming soon’!
Even with the servers going crazy. I still enjoyed playing this game and so has everyone I have played it with.
The very popular mobile version of the venerable console hit title of the same moniker, Rock Band, is shutting down at the end of May. EA Mobile recently sent an alert stating their impending drop of support for the game.
On may 31, Rock Band will no longer be playable on your device. Thanks for rocking out with us!”
Now don’t fret Rock Band fans, EA Mobile seems to be simply shifting its focus onto Rock Band Reloaded. So you can still get your ‘on the go’ Rock Band fetish. Its just that you’ll have to buy a new app, spending at least $4.99 or $9.99 for the HD version, to continue rocking on. Oh, and all those in-game “Music Store” songs you bought to extend the original Rock Band app are dead in the water. Meaning that they will not work with Reloaded. Yeah, we know that sucks.
Will this act may make folks feel hesitant to buy the 2nd generation Rock Band app or invest heavily in add-on content? Only time will tell. But you gotta admit, its a fun game and the original was worth every penny for the joy it brought to the masses on a mobile platform. Lets hope its successor continues that legacy.
So rest in peace original Rock Band. Thanks for the good times.
When Double Fine Productions reached out to the gaming community for funding their goal was $400,000. Double Fine as many of you may know is the same developer behind Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Stacking, and Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster. Founder Tim Schafer wanted to create a game that he and his team had complete control of without a publisher dictating what was needed. They turned to Kickstarter and asked the community for funding in order to fufill that vision. So in just over a month Double Fine manged to get 87,142 people to raise $3,336,371. Their new game will be a point and click adventure available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android platforms. Expect it sometime next year.
EA has just announced that the Maxis-made SimCity franchise will be making its big comeback and they’ve also provided us with an announcement trailer. No actual gameplay seen so far, just CGI in this trailer, and hopefully it keeps the approach that made past games in the franchise so sucessful, we all know how much of a flop SimCity Societies was, many people are simply saying “EA better not screw up with this one” – hopefully they don’t! I’m eager to start building cities again.
This game will release in 2013 on PC and Mac and the most information so far is that the game will have community online features, where you will neighbor your friend’s cities and sometimes your city could be affected by how your friends cities are performing.
Version 10.8 will bring a bunch of new features to MAC OS X. You can check out all the features in the video above.
The Onlive desktop app is finally here for the Apple iPad. With a later release date from android tablets and for PC and MAC. This app allows you to run windows 7 on many devices via the cloud lets take a look at what they are offering.
