Play In Your Streets With Location Based Gaming

Tired of playing Call of Duty on the same maps? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could play games from your consoles, based on the streets you grew up in? That’s the idea behind location based gaming.

The games developed in this fashion, progress depending upon the location of the player using satellite positioning and other recent techniques. The point is that games like this bring reality as close to us as they possibly can, and with the increase in the demand of reality based titles these type of games might take over the gaming world.

South Korea To Move All Students To Tablets And E-books

South Korea, the world’s most wired nation, has announced that it expects to replace all paper textbooks with electronic tablets at its state-run schools by 2015.

Ever since the Kindle e-reader hopped onto the scene in 2007, the dream of completely digitalizing all educational material and cramming it into a slim and light device slowly became feasible, albeit at turtle speeds.

Plants Vs Zombies Arrives On Windows Phone 7

Plants vs Zombies is an awesome game that was first introduced to Android as a tower-defense type game. Instead of your standard tower defense game however, the player strategically places sunflowers on a lawn which generate sun energy to be used to “purchase” weapons (A.K.A peashooters).

The peashooters shoot peas (go figure) at the slowly approaching zombies until they fall over and perish. It’s a great children’s game, but I know a few adults who are into it too.

Andy Pad Gingerbread Tablet Hitting UK In Sept.

The touchpad is coming a couple of months, and is priced at 129 pounds. The company claims that the tablet is aimed at teens and younger children, although it remains a mystery, as to why.

Chrome OS R12 Just Released

Google has just released an updated version of Chrome OS beta. Chrome OS Revision 12 will most likely be the version sent out with the very first chromebooks from both Acer and Samsung. Some existing bugs include issues with 3G activation, the chat window, and the Angry Birds game. The 12th revision isn’t all bad though as it fixes many security issues with a revamped Adobe Flash, integrated file browser, improvements for video chat, trackpad sensitivity, and wireless connections.

Now You Can Play Angry Birds in Your Browser

Angry Birds is one of the most popular games available on mobile devices and now you can play it using just a browser. Like the original app, there’s no software to download or install since it just requires a browser.

Angry Birds Hits Chrome Web Store

Peter Vesterbacka spoke at the keynote address at Google I/O and announced a desktop browser version of Angry Birds for Google Chrome, now available through the Chrome Web Store. The WebGL-supported game is compatible with any WebGL browsers, like Chrome and Firefox 4. However, when the game is played in Chrome, it opens Chrome-specific elements like Chrome blocks and Chrome bombs.

The new version also opens the Mighty Eagle which was originally only available in iOS versions. Gamers can expect to get over 60 frames per second using WebGL and the game can be played offline if you happen to be on the road and away from an Internet connection.

Angry Birds Magic Adopts NFC Technology

If there weren’t enough versions of Angry Birds yet, brace yourself, Angry Birds Magic is coming soon! Angry Bird makers, Rovio are teaming up with Nokia to bring NFC (near-field communications) technology to Angry Birds. Don’t get too excited just yet, this won’t be a multi-player version of Angry Birds. Users will instead tap their Nokia phones with one another to unlock new levels in their Angry Birds games, and I assume will attempt to clear each level while the two friends will have some level of “bonding”, if you can call it that!

Angry Birds To Microsoft: We Are Ready For Launch!

If you are unfamiliar with the game, Angry Birds, you are missing out! The game consists of numerous levels where the player slings birds through a catapult-like mechanism and aims to hit all the targets with a limited number of birds. The game requires skill in that it sometimes requires thinking ahead of how a stack of boxes may fall and hit an additional target. The goal is to kill two birds with one stone, in the most literal sense.

Angry Birds has been an absolute hit on mobile devices, whether Android or iPhone, people love it! To make things better, the creators release new versions very frequently (practically every holiday), giving players fresh content to engage with. Although it was previously available on “only” iOS and Android operating systems, Microsoft has announced that the game will be coming to Windows Phone 7 on…

Although this already beloved app will return to it’s normal price of $0.99 after today, there will be different free apps available each day. This will not only draw customers to the new AppStore, but will also help promote unknown apps that deserve the attention. Plus, who doesn’t like free apps? Everyone wins here.

Except Apple, who just sued Amazon in attempt to stop the online retailer from using the name “AppStore”.
