One of the most pleasant things to come out of this year’s E3 show was Bethesda’s announcement of a brand new Fallout game, and I’m not talking about Fallout 4. A little iOS game (soon to be on Android) called Fallout Shelter was released directly after the Bethesda Press Conference, and I, like many gamers, downloaded it immediately. Having little to do with the actual world of Fallout and instead focusing on the Pipboy renditions of persons and the Vaults themselves, Fallout Shelter is a fun way to waste a lot of time. If you’re looking for something substantial to hold you over until Fallout 4 releases this Fall, you’ll probably want to look elsewhere. Read the rest of this entry »

Mat’s MIA this week, but not for the murderous reasons behind Jett’s disappearance last week (he’s just sick), so it’s just Jett and Jason this week.
Besides almost diverging into another movie review show, Jett and I discuss the phenomenon that is/was Flappy Bird. Having not played the game until very recently however, I can see why people have been addicted to it.
We also speak our minds about Nintendo, following their most recent Nintendo Direct, and discuss how we might go about fixing the Big N’s woes.

The Recurring Bosscast Episode 036: Pour One Out for Flabby Bird
Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android operating systems for mobile devices like smartphones and iPads/iPhones/iPod Touches have been getting a steady stream of games since their inception. It’s a guarantee that each week, if not each day, a new game or two will be released for the portable devices. Whether or not those games are worthwhile is an entirely different story. But what about those instances where the games being released are ports of actual console video games? It’s been happening more and more recently, and it has gotten me to think about just what that means to you and I as gamers, as well as to the publishers and developers of said games.
This past week (and as my phone currently told me today is still going on) EA had a massive sale on all their iPhone video games. Most games were $.99 and my girlfriend game me a $10 iTunes gift card, so picking up a few was an easy choice. I’ve played through a few and wanted to touch on each lightly, mayhaps to entice one of you to get one yourself.
I’m not one to put in a good deal of time into games for my iPhone, but I’ve sure been enjoying this game. Dungeon Raid (Lite or the $.99 edition) is sort of like Puzzle Quest and sort of not. As far as free games go for the iPhone, or dollar games for that matter, this one stands up with the best puzzle games out there. I’ve got some pics for you as well, if my enthusiasm isn’t enough for your interest to be piqued.
