I must admit: I still play Draw Something, albeit only with the few loyal friends that I have left (thanks Chad!). Like millions of others, most of the people on my friends list flocked to basically anything else, avoiding the game like the plague -- some users cited Zynga as the cause.

Well, the saga of Zynga's evil mobile influence continues, as it's been a paltry month and a half, and it seems that the real reason for Zynga's OMGPop acquisition is out on the table: ad spots.

The NHL is the first active business to set up shop. You're all corporate sponsors, folks: you just don't know it yet. Just think of the possibilities -- maybe we can get Mr. Destructoid some love?

Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome

That soothing music was nice before I go drive to the middle of nowhere to do my taxes. I don't have anything that will play Monument Valley (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), which is out now, but if I did, I would. Thankfully an ...more
