For the past few months, part of my morning wakeup routine has been playing a variety of iOS games. I’ve tried many, and what I have here are descriptions and pointers to those which I find myself coming back to on a regular basis. Each category listed alphabetically. FYI, anyone who wants to connect with me for social games via Facebook may do so.
In the first of a zillion or so news announcements from San Diego Comic-Con, we present the teaser trailer for “Firefly Online,” a social MMORPG targeted to mobile devices. The game’s Web site is at keepflying.com, but it’s being hammered (not Captain Hammer) and may take a while to load.

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be running a few of my back video reviews of the Gears of War games, leading up to a review of Gears of War 3. First up – the game that started it all, Gears of War. Continue reading →
It’s been a while since I put one of my video reviews up on the site (particularly those of the video game variety) – but it’s also been a while since I did one of a genre game.
