Angry birds gets a 15-level worth of an update, we get a sneak peak at Valentine’s Day edition

by 16 comments

Angry Birds needs no introduction, so let’s just cut to the chase – Rovio has just released an update to the game. There are some 15 new levels plus 15 soon-to-come levels. The update is not the rumored St. Valentine’s day edition. But we have new news on that last one too. We found a series of screenshots that show what this new romantic level pack will look like.

Also today is one of the biggest Sundays in the USA NFL season – the Super Bowl. And if there’s one thing this sports event is famous for (besides the game itself), it’s the ads. Watched by millions of Americans each year, the Super Bowl advertisements are special and Rovio Mobile will air their Angry Birds Rio commercial today too. Read more »

Get your Motorola ATRIX fix with this short video ad marathon

by 211 comments

The Motorola ATRIX was among the most interesting announcements at this year’s CES. Not only because it’s among the few Android smartphones powered by the powerful Tegra 2 platform, but also because it comes with a bunch of docking accessories, which can turn the device from a TV video player with its own remote to a slim netbook (or smartbook, if you like) with a proper screen and a hardware keyboard.

I’ve got you a whole playlist of short video ads of the Atrix. The playlist includes 10 clips and it’s total running time is 3 minutes. Read more »

Here is my list of the best iOS games of 2010, signed and sealed

by 25 comments

I’m sure you don’t need to hear about mobile gaming evolution over the last few years once again. The Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS pocket consoles have millions of fans and some really good titles, but mobile phones, and especially the iOS devices, keep threatening their existence. Every new iDevice eats deeper and deeper into their sales.

The introduction of the iPhone 4 and the Apple iPad this year marked a turning point in the iOS evolution. Thanks to the superior hardware of these devices – proper processing power and high resolution – we can now play mobile games we’ve only dreamt of before.

The Apple gadgets don’t have the means to be a game changer (pun intended), but they are preferred by millions of users and the AppStore gaming demand grows by the day. This, of course, brought us lots of quality game titles in 2010.

Here are the games that deserved my money and might easily get yours.

by 202 comments

I already took you through the Top 10 video games of 2010 and you can tell it was a good year for gamers like me. But when I look at the upcoming games, I’m sure 2011 will be THE year.

We are going to see the ending of a few trilogies, reboots of popular and fundamental classics, and if we are lucky “forever” will be equal to 14.

The Top 10 video games in 2010 as I saw them

by 589 comments

It’s that time of the year that I like to take a look back at the past year and set my hopes for the next. So as part of a small mini-series I intend to do this holiday season I plan to take you through the best video games this year and the best video games to look out for in the upcoming 2011.

Year 2010 offered us lots of gaming titles, but most of them were sequels of popular and best-selling games. That way the publishers didn’t take any risks with new franchises and bet on safe ones instead. This is not a bad thing, but aren’t we tired of seeing 2,3,4…13 in the game titles? Of course there were some exceptions like Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Vanquish and Red Dead Redemption, but generally most of the games I played throughout 2010 were sequels.

Anyway, it was a good gaming year and I definitely can’t complain of what I got to play with in 2010.

It’s always hard to tell which game is best so I won’t put any ratings to the titles I’ve chosen to pinpoint. The ten games below surely made quite an impression and deserved equal places in my heart. I know everyone has a personal favorite (mine is Mass Effect 2), but let’s admit – when a game is good enough, nothing else matters. And the good games of 2010 are:
