Hello there! I'm Jed Whitaker, Editor-in-chief of Tomodom, a "game journalism" website with a diverse cast consisting of many females, LGBTQ, straight white males and everything in between. Our goal is to show that all types of people can be serious gamers and game journalists.
We are also working on a Kickstarter called DIG, or Diversity and Inclusivity in Gaming. More details about that to come in the future!
I remember when the Motorola Droid first came out, I HAD to get one. Upon getting one I instantly downloaded tons of apps: soundboards, game demos, etc. Guess how many of them were good? NONE OF THEM.
Let's be honest, Android / the market SUCKS! If you go to the marketplace and sort by newest apps you'll be greeted by a plethora of hot babes , Justin Bieber backgrounds, and soundboards that sound like they've been recorded from a cell phone. You literally have to wade through tons of bullshit to find anything worth while, and then it's only mediocre at best.
There are lots of casual games on Android that are decent time wasters at best, such as Angry Birds, Abduction, and Fruit Ninja, but I don't really feel there is anything for me, the hardcore gamer. The only game I've played that seems geared towards me is Zenonia which is similar in fashion to old school Legend of Zelda titles.
The Android OS in general is clunky, glitchy, and drains batteries far too fast, even with minimal use. The market is convoluted with shovelware, even worse than the Wii, and yet everyone loves it, but me. Android phones are the poor peoples smart phone, and I'm tired of mine. If the rumors are true, and Verizon announces an Iphone on the 11th, you can bet your ass I'll be reserving one as soon as I can. As much as I don't like to admit it, Stevey Jobs makes some good products, and the "I-devices" seems to be where it's at for gamers at this point.
