Game Dev Story was one of our favorite little-known titles from all of last year. It's wonderful blend of quirky humor and addictive gameplay grabbed us and didn't let go for days. Now, the game's developer, Kairosoft, has released a follow up to Game Dev Story titled Hot Springs Story.
By this time next week, this space will be taken over with iPad 2 news and reviews, but we've got rumors, oh yes, we've got rumors. Plus, a whole bunch of other cool stuff in the mix. Are you excited for Thunderbolt? Just the idea of that kind of speed makes us want to upgrade. How about you?

Or perhaps some type of new procedural generation of levels that creates new content daily.
Keeping up with your favorite shows should be no big deal in the age of mind-reading digital video recorders -- right? Yeah, talk to us after some "friend" ruins every surprise on Facebook 10 minutes after you miss an episode.

"Shadow Vanguard" may be a pretty over-the-top name for a game that's essentially about cops, but then again "Rainbow Six" is already a pretty strange name to begin with. Goofy names aside, Gameloft has revealed some of the first ever screenshots of the game in action, and it's looking absolutely fantastic.
The last time there was a sale like this we mentioned that there was no good reason for ever buying another game for more than 99 cents again in February. It appears we were wrong. There may never be another good reason for paying more than 99 cents for an App Store game. The list of awesome titles Gameloft is offering up for less than a buck is truly bonkers.
