I was the target audience for The Fast and the Furious when it came out in 2001. I was the member of a car club, I owned a Honda and I had friends who were tuners. We knew some of the owners of the cars in the movie, including the guy who owned the Supra that ended up becoming the hero of the flick. It was an interesting part of my life to be sure.
But today, 12 years later with two kids and a wife, I’m no longer that guy. I’ll watch the F&F movies, but at this point it’s all about entertainment, not wishing I could get my car in the film. So what appeal will Fast & Furious 6 — a game based on the latest installment in the series — do for me? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)

The original Angry Birds is arguably one of the most successful mobile games ever. In only just over three years, you can find a slew of sequels, hordes of merchandise and even an Angry Birds TV cartoon that airs in the developer’s home land of Finland. I’d bet that a large majority of readers checking out this article have played Rovio’s hit at some point, and if you haven’t, I’d wonder how you managed to avoid it.
Rovio is back with yet another sequel, but this time, it’s not an affiliation with a big blockbuster movie. Angry Birds Friends is all about bringing deep Facebook integration to everyone’s favourite bird-flinging game. Let’s take a closer look at what Rovio has crammed into its latest title, after the break. (more…)
There are a few games that I am embarrassingly addicted to. The Simpsons: Tapped Out comes to mind, a game that I’ve whiled away many an hour playing (and passed on to my friends, too). Tetris was another that killed the battery life on my Game Boy back in the day. Today, the battery killer is a new game, called Dots.
What makes Dots better than my other addictions? Well, there’s a list, so let me just break it down after the jump.
On this day in 1908, Mother’s Day as we know it was first celebrated in the United States. This weekend, if you’re treating mom to some gifts, don’t forget about the gift of gaming.

Teens seem to have mastered the practice of texting. Not only have they created their own codes and languages, they can type them out in a matter of several hundred characters a minute over thousands of messages within a given month.
TypeThis may not translate teen-speak, but it just might succeed in making players better at the technological art of texting. The skill-builder buried within this app uses points and competition to train texting accuracy, and the rate at which it’s executed. Can learning and training actually be a boredom buster, too? Find out after the jump. (more…)
Every week, Marius Masalar gives us a rundown of the best new games of the week with iPhone Game Friday, and every week I read through the post, think about what a great job he’s done and go to the App Store to make a purchase. He’s good at his job.
It happened again a few weeks ago when he brought up Mittens, a game by Disney not based on any previous character or property. It’s about a cat, a girl cat, diamonds — there’s a lot going on here, but at the end of the day, it’s a puzzler. Is it fun? Well Marius said it was “addictive and wonderful,” so is he right or does he need to start looking for a new job? Let’s find out. (more…)

Gameloft is quickly becoming known for their iOS ‘copies’ of popular console/PC games. I reviewed Order and Chaos a while back, which was and still is the closest thing you’ll get to World of Warcraft on your iPhone or iPad.
Well, they’re at it again with their new title, Heroes of Order and Chaos. Retaining the environments and characters of the OaC world, this game is a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title that clearly takes inspiration from the hugely popular PC title, League of Legends.
Let’s see how it fares, after the jump. (more…)
