This is my preferred casual game right now, Taito has been revamping his old classics (like puzzle bobble) and have successfully managed to give them an HD spin while keeping the old magic. Can be tried/bought from PSN right from your PSP.
Speed Forge 3D looks like one of the first serious indie game out there for Android. Very alike WipeOut, this blazing fast futuristic racing games really shows up the potential of 3D OpenGL on Android platform. Only availabl at SlideMe yet
Gameblog reveals that 1vs100 has been downloaded 2.5 Million times on Xbox Live! I’ve been trying it myself lately and the experience is just so much better than the orignal TV version – the camera angles & traveling, the avatars’ mimics and the game itself make it a captivating social gaming experience. If you have an Xbox 360, you definitely should give this a try!/
Pretty cool device spotted by Axel, as usual the use of natural interactions and a cool device really bring a lot to the gameplay and the engagement. As you can see committing yourself to the game with such setup is just one frag away! PC VR Game Gunpar gamecorner_tv
ARhrrrr is a very impressive augmented reality shooter game created at Georgia Tech Augmented Environments Lab and Savannah College of Art and Design, (SCAD- Atlanta), and produced on the NVidia Tegra devkits which are used as demonstration purposes for next-gen portable graphics platforms. This gives out a pretty funny and interactive game experience!
Pretty amazing experimentation by Peter Molyneux’s Lionhead where you can better grasp the implication of natural interfaces such as the “Natal” camera interface pushed by Microsoft.

In my opinion natural interactions and immersion are about to be profoundly changed with those technologies and others such as wearable computing, sensors, immersive headsets… And all those technologies are here for a sole and…read more
After the announces of OnLive and David Perry’s Gaikai, there seem to be another player in the game called OTOY. Techcrunch got the opportunity to test-drive an alpha of the service and let’s face it it’s stunningly realistic in terms of playability.

So to keep things short here’s the idea : when you pull the trigger, screen goes blank and then with draw just blank squares at the target position. In the Zapper you have a diode detecting light and a lens focusing the beam. The computer knows that if the diode…read more
While I stopped playing WoW, can’t help but being amazed by this use of Vollee (previously featured as bringing Second Life to an iPhone & N95). Seems like Vollee and OnLive are heading in the same direction proposing cloud-based game rendering.
I tried Mafia Wars and am pretty impressed by the fluidity of the gameplay process, everything goes fast and you climb up the ladder of being a mafioso at a very fast pace. When you get enough experiment with quests (NPCs) it’s time to fight real players in PvP and each fight goes really fast… thus making it a really nice casual experience. Available cross-platform (started on Facebook), it’s really wort a try !
