Tap Heroes: Tap ‘Em Dead In Serious RPG Style

Tap Heroes: Tap ‘Em Dead In Serious RPG Style

RPGs have long since been my favourite type of game. Ever since the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, graced my childhood back in 1998, I’ve been hooked. The masterful Majora’s Mask followed in 2001 to majora-pproval, then the seminal, yet under-appreciated Tales of Symphonia, co-operative RPGing at its absolute finest, materialised for the GameCube in 2003. Final Fantasy has been a major component of my life for longer than a lot of other major…

Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

What is the nature of addiction? The Oxford dictionary defines it as ‘the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming‘. Is it safe to assume that addiction is subjective, that it effects everyone differently? There’s certainly such a thing as an addictive personality, which can have a bearing on the severity of the case. I wouldn’t have previously described myself as fitting that particular…

Noodles Now: The Fastest Food Around

Noodles Now: The Fastest Food Around

As Blade Runner ably demonstrated to us back in 1982, the future shall be dominated by the Chinese. This was due to Los Angeles having such a large immigrant Chinese population at the time of pre-production. Following the demographic trend, by 2019 the filmmakers guessed, the population would be significant enough to dominate most of the city. Or maybe Ridley just though big neon kanji signs were cool. Either way, in that dystopian future, noodles…

Matchmaking Wines With The Glorious Grapeful

Matchmaking Wines With The Glorious Grapeful

Picture this. You’re sat in a smart restaurant, possibly on a first date, or, to raise the stakes a little, the first date with your partner’s parents in tow. You’re already a little on edge; anxiety’s got you swallowing too much. Now here comes the waiter, clasping a wine list. Oh God, wine? He hands it to you, the nearest person to him, your hand extending automatically to receive it. All heads turn. They wait,…

Warship Solitaire: A Cool Cruise In Nostalgia

Warship Solitaire: A Cool Cruise In Nostalgia

Remember Battleship? The cool blue plastic game set with the red and white pins? Most often played with a sibling or similar age relative, I have yet to encounter a game capable of producing similar instances of rage. The look of glee in the eyes of your enemy as they realise they’ve found your five piece vessel and destruction of your most valuable weapon in your armada is imminent is not something you forget in…

Pressing Dates In Hand With Glass Planner

Pressing Dates In Hand With Glass Planner

Here’s a confession: I don’t use a planner, diary or a calendar. Never have. My reasoning behind this startling stance is simple and long maintained; a calendar doesn’t prioritise. So, if you’ve got a number of things happening on the same day, or if you have one thing that suddenly takes precedence, your calendar isn’t going to work with you to readjust. You alone have to readjust. Electronic calendars are fiddly things, and to add…

Have A Crack At General Knowledge With The Genius Trivia Crack

Have A Crack At General Knowledge With The Genius Trivia Crack

Picture this Holy Grail of app development; you’re a small independent studio based in a part of the world not exactly renowned for pioneering technological advancements, let’s say Latin America. You release a few apps, first of all a stock market based number, then a couple of word game ones. They do well. Then they do very well. And then, in late 2013, your latest app, a trivia based mano y mano showdown, literally conquers…

ArkMC: Come Together. Right Now. In Front Of Me.

ArkMC: Come Together. Right Now. In Front Of Me.

‘Christ, what the hell is UPnP?’, I thought to myself as I read up on this particular app. The conundrum had me scurrying to Wikipedia to find the answer (that most trusted fountain of communal knowledge). UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is in fact not a courier service, but a set of networking protocols that allows various devices to discover each other’s presence on the same network. Though the explanation sounds like a tagline for…

There’s No Place I’d Rather ShutterBee

There’s No Place I’d Rather ShutterBee

If you’re anything like me, the well-intentioned photographs you take while travelling will serve two ultimate purposes; firstly, they will momentarily irritate anyone who happens to be scrolling through your Facebook or Twitter feed at the time who isn’t directly related to you. Secondly, they will clog up harddrive space on your computer. That seems to be the extent of it from my experience. If you’re the same, you might feel like that’s a little…

Survivors: The Quest Brings Epic Scale RPG To iPad

Survivors: The Quest Brings Epic Scale RPG To iPad

RPGs (Role Playing Games to the uninitiated) are my favourite type of game. They afford a gaming experience like no other, often going on for weeks at a time. They usually have an emotional hook with an epic story, and ways to progress and power up the characters as you move along. This week, prolific developer G5 Games have entered the RPG fray with their mini epic Survivors: The Quest, a tale of three people…
