Sonic the Hedgehog, the longstanding Sega mascot, has driven to iOS.
Sega on Thursday announced the launch of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for iOS. The game, which has been available on traditional game platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, since 2012, has been modified to work with Apple's iPhone and iPad.
Like the console version, the game allows users to control Sonic or other Sega characters as they race through different tracks. The "Transformed" comes into play during a race when vehicles can be modified into a car, boat, or plane. The game also … Read more
Long ago, in a living room far, far away, games like Donkey Kong Jr., Frogger, Laser Blast, Joust, Pac-Man, Q-bert, Centipede, Burgertime, and Dig Dug ruled our every waking moment. Pixilated characters beeped their way across our TV screens as we challenged our friends and families to a match on our Atari 2600, Atari 7800 ProSystem, Magnavox Odyssey, ColecoVision, and Astrocade game console systems.
Christmas comes but once a year.
Tales of racy pictures on gadget gifts come slightly more often.
A Virginia father says that his 8-year-old son received a Christmas surprise when he and his friends took pictures of themselves with his new Nintendo DS.
He found a dozen pornographic images in a file that had been put there by someone else.
As WJLA-TV reports, the boy's dad, Tom Mayhew says he bought the device at Walmart.
"It was a shocker because we had the family here and there were a lot of kids here. The kids were the ones … Read more
Historically -- or at least at the six CES shows I've attended so far -- the big show hasn't been the best platform for video games. Sure, there's usually a presence of third-party console accessory manufacturers and a fair amount of impressive PC gaming hardware, but 2014 might make some serious gaming headlines.
We already know that Valve's SteamOS platform is going to be making a major showing at CES 2014, so we're anticipating Steam Machines (or SteamBoxes) not just from Valve, but from a bevy of third-party PC makers as well. The biggest news … Read more
The very computer you use to read this story may not have been possible without the extraordinary work by computer pioneer, mathematician, and Bletchley Park cryptographer Alan Turing.
This week Turing received a posthumous royal pardon for being convicted in 1952 of homosexuality, which was then considered a crime. Turing had been given the choice of imprisonment or chemical castration. Shortly after choosing the chemical treatment, Turing committed suicide at the age of 41. … Read more
Now that you've blown all your money on holiday gifts for friends and family, I come to you today bearing one sweet freebie and one sort-of freebie.
For starters, do you have an Android-powered phone or tablet? You probably do most of your app shopping via Google Play, but there's another option: Amazon Appstore.
Why bother? I can think of five good reasons: Amazon is offering a $5 Amazon Appstore credit when you install the Amazon Appstore app. (Oh, it does too make sense; go back and read it again.)
So, for example, if you have a Motorola … Read more
The classically trained pianist and singer's music has been featured on hit TV series "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" and in Pedro Almodovar's 2011 film "The Skin I Live In." The new album, released … Read more
Will 2014 be the year when next-generation consoles hit their stride? The following 12 months after a console launch are always very telling, but for now all we can do is wait.
Putting the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 aside, there's still plenty of gas left in the tanks of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We're still very much in the middle of their respective golden ages, and a lot of the games on this list will see releases on those platforms as well.
If there's anything I've learned from doing this list for the … Read more
