Mame for iPad

Grab it while you can, it allows arcade roms to be added without jailbreaking.

Download in progress… Civilization IV: Colonization

Colonization downloading on Steam

I’m only familiar with this version from back in ye olde Amiga days, I know it’s a remake in the Civ IV game but I still hope (against better judgement perhaps) that it’ll play like the classic. Which reminds me, still haven’t tried Freecol.

Warcraft Europe is down

Warcraft Europe down

Looks like most of Europe can’t get online in Warcraft, this started last night with random disconnects and world server going down.
Saw this posted on the forums where it’s drowned in all the nerdrage comments, thought it was worth a share:

And again…


To Azeroth!

Pokemon Cross Stitch

Tempting, if I had any cross stitching talents whatsoever that is.

Clash of Clans

The ‘Clash of Clans’ game should be renamed ‘Crash of Servers’ considering how often it goes down.
Also forum, yay or nay?

Guardian Cross tip: After the missions

So you’re done with all the missions and submissions of Chapter 1 and you’re waiting for the next chapter in Guardian Cross, what do you do in the mean time? Well you can re-fight all the battles you’ve completed, this will still give you Guardian Points (GP) and award you with random drops of Hunting and Colosseum tickets. To gain the maximum amount of GP look at your map at the first bridge from the left. To the right of it is the Town of Mechadane. Enter it and in the top right corner is the merchant Clark. Every time you defeat him you gain 60GP, which is the maximum at the moment.

Guardian Cross

Guardian Cross is a great new game for iPhone & iPad by Square Enix, well worth checking out for Final Fantasy and card game fans alike.
Quests, player vs player, monster hunting for rare cards, it’s got it all.
Hiroyuki Ito, the creator of the Final Fantasy ATB system, is the lead concept planner for Guardian Cross. Composer Naoshi Mizuta and character designer Akira Oguro round out the all-star development team.

For a limited time, players can receive rare limited edition cards including moogles, mandragoras, Ifrit and other classic monsters from Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV by inviting friends to play Guardian Cross.
If you do decide to check it out (it’s free so hell yeah) enter invitation ID SI57028 when you first start the game and we’ll both get a rare card!

Ooooh yeah, here comes the Ouya

Well waddayaknow, someone managed to make something interesting with Android. A sub $100 open platform console to hook up to your hdtv that includes a yummy controller.
I loves me my iPad, but I’ve never gotten the hang of racers and first person shooters by waving the screen about or tapping frantically all over the iPad. Maybe it’s the old age, but I prefer a real controller for those kinds of games.
And by the looks of how their Kickstarter project is going it seems we will soon be able to get one of these.
Also if it’s really open it’ll be nice to see emulators coming to this. Mmmm, big screen SNES & TG-16.
After Nintendo recently announced they’re now embracing DLC (downloadable content) maybe this is what the market needs for a good wake up call. Either that or it’s the final nail in the coffin of old school high quality games and EA shall rule us all.
Let’s wait and see.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
