You can imagine our incredible sadness upon hearing the news that this game would not, in fact, feature Kevin Costner as a playable character. Also, apparently the 90s were too long ago for them to include Whitney Houston as one of the celebrities your burly avatar must protect. No, this game has nothing to do with the film of the same name, but The Bodyguard still looks very entertaining nonetheless.
Here’s an odd one for this fine Thursday: Apple may be releasing yet another minor update to iOS 4.3 in the next two weeks. Absolutely necessary or is Cupertino stepping up their efforts to thwart jailbreakers?
Remember those other iOS devices you have laying around? Yeah, your iPod and iPhone need some attention, too. Don't forget that they're just as important as your new iPad 2 -- these ones can actually fit in your pocket and go where you go, incognito.
This week's Best Case Scenario features the rugged, American-made RokForm Rokbed aluminum case, the pillow-soft feel of Proof cases, a watchband for your iPod nano from HEX for all you hipster types, and a sport armband for your marathon runners who need some music to power you through.
Retro gaming enthusiasts have a whole lot to be pleased about today. Atari just announced that they are releasing an enormous hub app for dozens of the best retro classics of all time. If your Atari has fallen into disrepair or you simply can't be bothered to lug around that giant piece of wood and plastic anymore you might want to consider dropping a measly $14.99 on this compilation. Or you can selectively go through and buy packs of 4 games for 99 cents.
You've probably never heard of Perfect Cell, but it's a very interesting game that's worth giving some attention. It's a game about an alien organism - which is described as neither bad, nor good...just perfect - that crash lands on Earth and is being held captive deep below the ocean. From there you need to use your creepy alien powers to break out of your prison. Maybe it's not quite as simple a concept as Angry Birds' "pigs-stole-my-eggs" plotline, but it's fun nonetheless.
Some writer's opinions here notwithstanding, Angry Birds is clearly a gaming phenomenon. While Plants v. Zombies, Peggle, and other app store hits may have their loyal fan base, the avian slingshot game has spawned toys, has been parodied as a Michael Bay film, is being used as inspiration by Ohio union members fighting for their jobs, and copied to death endlessly by app after app after app.
So if you've grown tired of the birds, if you've finished every level and await thirstily for an update, or if you're interested in twists on what is clearly destined to go down as a classic, come fly with us.
We already know that Steve Jobs and Company love iAds, because they’ve made such a big deal about them at media events for almost a year. Apparently some of you must love ‘em too, because Apple has now introduced a free app dedicated to them called iAd Gallery.
Okay, at least act surprised: Teens love the iPhone. Who knew?! But did you know that more than a third of them actually plan to buy one in the near future, with 20 percent also ready to buy a tablet as well?
You may remember PopCap games as the developer and publisher behind such classics as Peggle, Plants vs. Zombies, and Bejeweled. Today, the company has unveiled its new label 4th & Battery, which will reportedly carry a new, edgier tone than PopCap has previously been known for. They also announced the first game that will debut from the label. It's called Unpleasant Horse, and you play as, drumroll please...an unpleasant horse.
Fan of David Bowie but you have always felt like you could have produced one of his classic singles better than they did at the time? Soon you’ll get you chance, as Bowie’s 1975 single Golden Years arrives on iOS in early June.
