We're all a-flutter, all a-tingle, all ready for what tomorrow morning will bring when Steve Jobs kicks things off at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference. Will he stun us with the iPhone 5 against all expectations? Or will it be all iOS 5 all the time, with glimpses of what the upcoming hardware can do? What about refreshes of other existing lines? We know he's gonna talk iCloud, Lion, and our favorite mobile operating system, but what else? What else? we cry!
And, yes, of course, we didn't let the grass grow under our feet, so just in case in all the WWDC hype, ya missed it, here's this week's bag o'goodies.
Sometimes game devs spend time meticulously crafting characters with believable body structures. They go to expensive colleges, learn the intricacies of anatomy, study Phi--the whole kit and caboodle.
Other devs just bust out a couple of polygons and call it a day. Is it wrong of them for experimenting? In this week's GameTime, we'll take a look at everything from enormous noses to tiny wings, and other blown up characters that are blowing up the iTunes store.
Independent games are just as great as their blockbuster counterparts, and at this year's Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco we got to check out some of the cooler game titles that were nominated for awards in the Independent Games Festival.
We're here on the GDC show floor perusing the booths and playing the games so that you don't have to. Actually, if you're currently at work, you probably wish you were here with us playing the games rather than slaving away in a cubicle. And if you're at school, well who is to say you're not playing a game right now on your iPhone, eh? Check out the gallery below for a quick walk through of the show floor, and a 360 look at the next generation PSP and the Nintendo 3DS, as well as some iOS games.
Even though several different platforms had games that were nominated, iPhone gaming stole the show at this year's International Mobile Gaming Awards. The nominees were announced last month and judges were brought in to deliberate shortly thereafter. We have the results of the awards, and while some came as a bit of a surprise, others were destined for victory.
In this week's Game Time we take a look at three excellent action games that are all under a dollar (for a limited time). If you like stabbing, shooting, and punching you should download these games ... and consider looking into an anger management course while they download.
