Angry Birds Seasons ‘South HAMerica’ update review

by 32 comments

South HAMerica is the latest update to Rovio’s Angry Birds Seasons game, which is updated every now and then for a festival or season specific level pack. The South HAMerica update is odd, in that it doesn’t directly relate to any season or festival, and other than some vague reference to the football matches being held in Brazil isn’t as topical as the previous updates.

As usual, you get a pack of couple dozen levels. We haven’t played the regular Angry Birds in a while so we decided to give this a try. Read more »

It was apparently time for Angry Birds Seasons to get yet another update. This time, Rovio added 24 new levels to its insanely popular game. These take you on a trip to South HAMerica, where your mission is, as always, to stop those pesky pigs.

There are even three bonus levels inside, and everything is packed with relics, artifacts, ancient statues, and rope bridges – all making for a pretty exotic twist to the game. Read more »

You can now use a PS4 pad wirelessly with your PS3

by 25 comments

For the longest time, Sony has adopted an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” ideology when it came to its dual-shock Playstation controller. The iconic remote hadn’t had a major design overhaul since its debut in 1997, until the Dual-shock 4 was released.

PS4′s gamepad managed to improve (for many) on an already beloved design, and if you wished you could use Sony’s newest controller on a Playstation 3 wirelessly, then you’re in luck, because now you can. Read more »

by 39 comments

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is a third person hack and slash action game. Based in roughly the same period from where every Greek God game comes from, Godfire features some fancy effects and all your favorite Greek mythical creatures that you’ve seen umpteen times before.

I decided to give it a try to see if it is something original or just another God of War rip-off. Read more »

‘Angry Birds Epic’ for iOS, Android and Windows Phone game review

by 8 comments

There is no doubt that Angry Birds is to Rovio what Mario is to Nintendo and Sonic is to SEGA. The company has tried to dabble with other IPs in the past but hasn’t had the same level of success so it keeps going back to the Angry Birds well.

After countless Angry Birds games based on the same original formula, Rovio has tried to diversify it a bit recently, starting with Angry Birds Go, which was a kart racing game (*cough* Mario Kart *cough* Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing *cough*). The latest game in the Angry Birds series is Angry Birds Epic, which like Angry Birds Go has very little to do with the original games and is actually an RPG. Read more »
