Contest: Win some loser's Nokia N-81 Multimedia gaming phone contraption photo
Contest: Win some loser's Nokia N-81 Multimedia gaming phone contraption
by Papa Niero

Some weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of having my ass handed to me in a Reset Generation journo tournament hosted by the Themis Group and, as promised, I shall pass the spoils onto a chosen one from the Dtoid Army this Saturday. The prize is a slick Nokia N-81 Multimedia phone ($350ish) that has more applications than your lame ex-girlfriend's Facebook profile, including a 2MP camera, Gmail, MP3s, Internet tubes, proper WiFi, N-Gage multiplayer games, and the most ghetto-blasting speakers I've ever seen grafted on a cellphone. This thing is frickin' LOUD.

We're also throwing in some wireless bluetooth headphones and the ungodly amount of cables and international adapter things this comes with. Yes, yes, my European Dtoiders, you too can soon have my cooties. On a related note, did you know that fish you've gone to parties with can have their tongues replaced by an isopod? Watch who you kiss, kids!

Nunchuk-like controller coming to cell phones

Do you find yourself playing games on a cell phone and your chubby fingers are getting in the way? Well, worry no more. The Zeemote is a bluetooth-enabled controller that looks awfully similar to a Wii Nunchuk and promises t...

Japan gets Professor Layton port for cell phones

The reasons I'm obsessed with Japan are beyond number, but this recent announcement is a sterling example of why I envy their culture. Not only is Professor Layton and the Curious Village available on cell phones, but accordi...

Square Enix announces Ellark, a new mobile RPG

Okay, I don't currently play mobile games, but I have to say I would play mobile games if something that wasn't total crap was actually available to play (or if the majority of US cell phones weren't totally uncomfortable to ...

Square Enix forms mobile studio, more quality spin-offs headed your way

I think I'm starting to privately hate the Enix half of Square-Enix. Although I can't necessarily prove that they are the problem, I can say that before Square joined forces with them, I liked them a lot better. The more sequ...

Guitar Hero coming to cell phones; hopes not be drowned out by riotous laughter

There are multiple levels of ridiculous in all things from film to games. The announcement of Guitar Hero Mobile invents a whole new level of senselessness -- It's the equivalent of trying to milk a meercat. Why do I play Gui...

'GTA for girls' causes controversy, sky is blue, Piplup still adorable

In a completely unshocking turn of events, a game billed as the "Grand Theft Auto for girls" has pissed off people who we're all beginning to assume earn a living being outraged and screaming "Won't someone ple...

Persona 3 cell phone prequel coming (to a faraway country)

Siliconera has word that Japan will be seeing a Persona 3 prequel in the form of a cell phone game that doesn't look entirely terrible. Here's the rundown:Without delving into too much some events happen pre-Persona 3 Playsta...

Rockin' Stone: You can skip all your life, but not go anywhere

I don't think I have words to describe the majesty of the above footage. It comes from a cell phone game entitled Rockin' Stone and not since Cassavetes' The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie have I seen such a gleeful mineral fo...

Ghouls 'n Ghosts returns! Capcom releases the classic ... wait, for cell phones?

As if the game wasn't tough enough to play with an NES controller or a Wonderswan pad, Capcom's mobile division has announced the re-release of the classic Ghouls 'n Ghosts for ... your phone. Yeah, good luck with those littl...

Square-Enix announces Destiny's Child game for mobile phones ... wait, what?

Remember the whole Y2K doomsday scare, when your neighbor spent his entire nest egg building that bomb shelter in his basement, stocked with a 10-year supply of Spaghetti-Os and Urnge Drank? Yeah, you might want to go knock o...

Hands-on: God of War: Betrayal
by Robert Summa

Most of the time, we wouldn't dare give up precious Dtoid front-page space to something as casual and, well, crappy as a cell phone game. But, when something is as big and done as well as God of War has been done for the mobile market, it's nearly impossible to hold back and not tell you about it.

I'll keep this brief, because frankly, you know God of War and we all know cell phone games aren't the most feature-rich things around anyway. However, you must keep this in mind: God of War: Betrayal for cell phones is probably the best action-oriented cell phone game I've ever seen or had the pleasure of touching.

Check out my impressions after the jump.

Keitai attack! Japanese cell phone games we'll never get

Unlike us here in America, the people in Japan actually play cell phone games. While reading the stories on Famitsu, I keep coming across cell phone games that actually look like fun. So today, I've gathered together...

Gameloft is all up in the cell phone gaming market and one of the things they especially love to do is take popular TV shows and turn them into mobile gold (Lost, Desperate Housewives, etc.). The latest step toward market sat...

Dyson has already talked a little about N-Gage's new vision, but here it is straight from their mouth in video form. Enjoy. *Props to Husky Hog for the camera and editing work.
