There are many emulators which come and go on the Google Play Store, we’ve had Playstation 1, Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, and just about any retro console you can imagine, but never the PSP. PPSSPP is the first PSP emulator for Android, however the developers admit that it is still in extremely early stages, more of a prototype at it’s current version.
Angry Birds is arguably one of the most loved mobile gaming releases ever, and after a few spin-offs and sequels, it franchise is expanding with no sign of slowing down. On November 8th, another Angry Birds title will launch on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android on the appropriate cyber markets, this time officially teaming up with Star Wars to create of the titles to be set in a galaxy far, far away.
Stuck for something to do this weekend? Not anymore! The beta of Medal of Honor: Warfighter is hitting the Xbox Marketplace tomorrow (5th October).
This game is the sequel to the Medal of Honor reboot which launched in 2010 to some less than favorable reviews. Despite this, the new game looks quite incredible, mostly down to the fact that it uses the same game and physics engine as Battlefield 3, which is probably my favorite shooter available.
However, if you don’t have an Xbox, and therefore don’t have access to the beta, why watch something to get you hyped for it’s release at the end of the month? The video below is actual gameplay of the Medal of Honor Warfighter campaign, it looks amazing.
Like most of these downloads, there isn’t a specific time to expect the download. If you’ve got the day, I’d advise sitting tapping refresh on the Xbox Marketplace.
Rockstar have released three more screenshots of the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5, adding to the small pile given to us already.
As always, the latest Fifa is going to be one of the top selling games of the year. Minor tweaks and an update to squads makes each new Fifa instalment a must have for fans of the previous year. However, Fifa isn’t cheap, especially when you consider that the game never really improves every year, it simply adds a couple of new features to make sure it remains dominant over Konami’s PES series.
Dice and the Battlefield series has certainly been in the news this week, but it hasn’t been Battlefield 3 in the spotlight, instead it’s sequel which was leaked then officially announced on Youtube. So, DICE have taken to making sure everybody’s eyes are still focuses on upcoming Battlefield 3 DLCs with an insane trailer for Armored Kill.
Armored Kill is the latest DLC for the explosive shooter, and will see the biggest map in any Battlefield game since the franchise began. Also included are some new weapons, vehicles and game modes.
Gaming heads have teamed up with Valve to create the first officially licensed turret, based on the humorous singing turrets in Portal and Portal 2.
The 16″ tall model is motion activated, meaning if you walk in front of it, you’ll get a comedic warning such as ‘Is anyone there?’
“Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted to our exacting standards.”
Available in Q4 this year, it’s a collectible with only 350 being created. Act fast.
On a day where I planned to get a lot of stuff done, I have instead found myself sucked into an amazingly addictive gameplay experience in the form of Gyro for Android.
To explain Gyro would only take a few seconds. You control a colourful wheel in the centre of your screen, made up of Cyan, Orange and Purple segments. You control direction the wheel spins by using a slider at the bottom of the screen, or by manual rotating it. As you do this, coloured dots gradually float towards the wheel, gradually increasing in speed and numbers. Your objective is to rotate the wheel so that by the time a dot hits it, the colours are matching each other.
It’s an extremely simple concept, however has been designed extremely well with a very minimal yet high quality looking user interface.
Gyro for Android is FREE on the Google Play Store.
Temple Run Brave has just hit the Google Play Store and iTunes, offering a combination of addictive Temple Run gameplay with the characters and scenery of Pixar’s ‘Brave’ film.
The game is simple enough, given that the controls and objectives are exactly the same as the original Temple Run. There are however, a few differences to the previous game such as the option to shoot targets as you run to earn more points.
The new soundtrack for Temple Run Brave is awesome for such a simple game. The music adds a lot of tension and effect to the gameplay, which has improved graphics both in scenery, and in characters. Instead of being chased by a pack of monkeys, your character is chased by some kind of bear (I haven’t seen the movie).
Unlike the original Temple Run, this will cost you the small fee of 69p. It’s not a huge price considering there are quite a few improvements. However if you weren’t crazy about the last one, there isn’t much point in you getting this one.
It’s not often we post individual bits of gaming happenings, as we try to showcase games as a whole rather than reporting on news. However, my favourite award winning game, Battlefield 3, is something i’m always researching. Today there has been a pretty interesting story circling the web.
If you play Battlefield 3, you no doubt know that there has been a rather high demand for a Dinosaur mode, potentially a rival to the Zombie games playable in Call of Duty. The DLC rumours have been fueled by the consistent appearances of toy dinosaurs in the current game, such as the toy dinosaur held by a soldier in the campaign, and several toy dinosaurs appearing in multiplayer maps. Despite this, DICE have never commented on the appearances of the dinosaurs, leading many to believe that it’s a lost cause.
However, yesterday DICE discussed the DLC with the community for the first time. Below is a tweet by the official Battlefield account on the topic of a dinosaur mode.
@zamielk No, at this time there is no word on a dinosaur DLC. Would you like one? And if so, would it be humans vs. dinosaurs? ^KB

Following this tweet, the Battlefield community exploded, leading the conversation to start on Reddit. But the discussion on the social news website wasn’t just fans getting hyped up at the news. The community manager of DICE contributed his statement to the conversation.
“Glad to see the enthusiasm. Really, though, if this is something you guys want the best way to go about it is to try to get #BF3Dinos off the ground on Twitter. If that sh*t trends it’s pretty hard to ignore.”
So, it looks like DICE might actually be creating the dinosaur mode. It might be a bluff, but it would’t hurt to try and get #bf3dinos trending.
