mii-crotransactions
Miitomo, Nintendo's first mobile phone game is officially available in Japan, and I've gotten my grubby hands on it by being a big fat liar, all because I love you, dear readers.

Downwell at PAX East

Slots-a-plenty
I tried Konami's latest money eater this morning. Their iOS, Android, and Kindle title, Slot Revolution, doesn't have the best name. It doesn't do a good job of describing this free-to-play slot machine-based dungeon crawling RPG, but I could tell that it had role-playing roots from the screenshots, so I gave it a spin. A spin, folks.    read
