Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party: Hot dogs are apparently "crazy" now


Dec 02
// Conrad Zimmerman
[video]113320:803[/video]It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a game with a good title. Or, if I can't have a good title, give me a really weird one to grab my attention. Just string together a set of words with (at best) ten...

Contest: Win some loser's Nokia N-81 Multimedia gaming phone contraption

Aug 26 // Niero Gonzalez
To win it, simply post a comment.  That's it.  You know, like "Do Want!" or "Where are my damn vinyl pants, Nicholas Wallenius Chester?!!" and you're in like ... ingrowns? I don't know, man. Post your comment, and we'll randomly pick your weiner, and I'll announce this Saturday sometime during our panel at the Penny Arcade Expo. If you don't win, don't worry -- 10,000 runners-up will receive an autographed copy of the weird press release we got this morning about the first annual Egyptian Dental Association conference in Cairo which, believe it or not, only has 2 less gaming companies attending than E for All. Be there! Good luck!

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 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...

Hands-on: God of War: Betrayal

May 09 // Robert Summa
Made by a completely different team from who created and managed each God of War franchise, the development team at SOE Los Angeles working on God of War: Betrayal in no way dropped the ball on this one.Though it is essentially a 2D side scroller, this game is the fairest representation you can get of the series for this kind of format. In fact, the action and amount of graphical robustness found on the screen left many of us in awe. We were floored that this was actually a standard cell phone game.Of course, it's not just graphics that really make cell phone titles work. The most important part is how they play -- something especially true for action games. What's crazy is that not only did the SOE team create a wonderfully familiar feel to God of War: Betrayal, but they did it in such a way that makes the game actually easy and intuitive to play on a cell phone. The game takes many cues from its big brothers, whether it be pushing a directional button several times to move a statue or pushing in different directions to pull off a finishing move. In essence, the same kind of quality and excellent gameplay you get in the console version is absolutely perfectly translated to the cell phone.I don't know about you, but I'm one to never download games to my phone. If I need mobile gaming, then I just whip out my DS or PSP. But, after seeing God of War: Betrayal, I can say without a doubt I will be downloading this thing.In fact, I own a BlackJack. And, I asked a rep for the team if a widescreen, BlackJack-friendly version would be released. While he didn't say yes outright, he did hint that there was a strong possibility of it happening. All the more incentive for me to actually buy this thing.Expect God of War: Betrayal for mobile phones to hit all carriers in the next few months.

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 ...

GDC 2007: Mobile Games? People play those?

The scary thing about the Mobile Game Industry is that they seem no more sure of its ability to succeed than the gamer who reacts apathetically to it. I was curious about the real deal, so I checked out a seminar today called...
