Angry Birds Stella arriving this Fall

Angry Birds Stella arriving this Fall

Our favorite little slinging birds are readying themselves to once again grace your handheld devices pretty soon. That’s right guys we’re talking about the one and only Angry Birds. This time around there does seem to be a small twist in the tale though. The new title is called “Angry Birds Stella” as the name suggests, the game is mainly focused towards the  female gender. Even though the Angry Birds franchise through out the years happens to be a favorite of both the genders, Rovio have decided to specially dedicate the upcoming handheld game series to its female fans all around the world. The company had recently updated their official Facebook page with a few snapshots of what we ought to expect from the next Angry Birds game which is to be the first one in the all new Angry Birds Stella series. The pictures reveal some of the new characters that would feature in the game along with a snap of the actual game-play which from the looks of it feels and looks visually quite appealing to say the least. We are still not sure as to exactly when Rovio are planning to officially launch the game (it is expected to be launched sometime this fall) and on which platform but I’m pretty sure that mystery would also soon be solved in the coming weeks. Even though the Angry Birds franchise have seemed to have lost a bit of steam in recent months falling behind the likes of some other noteworthy “sweet as candy” competition, but it still remains to be an all time favorite for people of all ages and I’m pretty sure the news is sure to excite you all. Well that’s all the news we have got for you for now but do stick around to find out more. In the mean time, start readying those fingers for some action packed bird slinging on the...

Konami launches official Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Companion App for Android

Konami launches official Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Companion App for Android

Since its ground breaking announcement by Konami last year, news surrounding the two next big installment in the long running Metal Gear Solid franchise has been running rampant. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and MGS5: Phantom Pain (scheduled to come out later this year) have no doubt been the two most awaited games this year and following the success of the previous titles in the franchise, it is safe to say that the Metal Gear Saga has long been a fan favorite. For those of you who are not aware, the 5th installment of the game is actually divided into two parts, Ground Zeroes is more of a prologue in which the players are introduced to the all new gameplay mechanics along with a few missions for them to get accustomed to the new engine used in the both these titles. MGS5: Ground Zeroes launched yesterday and is available on both current and next gen consoles. The game is available for $30 for Xbox One and PS4, and $20 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Among all the hype and excitement, Konami have also officially launched a companion app which allows players to go hand in hand with the game itself using your smartphone or tablet…..all in real time. That’s right guys!! Even though we have seen companion apps for other big game titles before as well, Konami have upped a notch with the introduction of a iDroid mode, which looks and feels almost similar to the iDroid device that Snake (the lead character in case you have been living under a rock) has been using in all the previous MGS titles. The iDroid feature allows you to get a real-time map of your surroundings on your smartphone or tablet without having to use the in-game pause menu. This feature does come in handy in tight situations where you need to keep tabs on your surrounding while at the same time sneaking around military prisons and refugee camps. Besides iDroid, there is also a “Mother Base” feature that lets you build your own tactical base. If that’s not enough to get you kick started, Konami have also kept a Cassette Tapes Mode that allows players to listen to music and intel tapes found within the game. Sounds pretty cool doesn’t it? For those of you who have already bought the game have to wait no further. Head on over to Google Play and download the MGSV: GZ companion app for free right...

Flappy Bird removed from Google Play after “Flapping” the world by storm

Flappy Bird removed from Google Play after “Flapping” the world by storm

Flappy Bird, the (world’s most annoying but addictive) game which is supposedly creating headlines all over has been finally removed from both the Play Store as well as app store. In a sudden turn of events, the game which was apparently earning its developer a whopping $50,000 per day through its in-app ads. Shocked much? But now it seems after all earning all the glory (and more than a million frustrated customers), Dong Nguyen, the game’s developer has now officially removed the game from both the stores. One of the main reasons for this drastic move was perhaps based largely on the fact that poor Mr. Nguyen couldn’t cope up with the barrage of criticisms and frustrations (he used to get more than a million tweets everyday) from player’s all over the world complaining as to exactly why the game is so darn difficult to play even though it looks like the easiest one you could lay your hands on. From the looks of things, the poor guy became so annoyed by all the complaints and blabbering that he had no other option but to eventually remove the game. The decision has seemed to be taken with a few mixed reactions coming in from people who have been playing it since it was launched almost 8 months ago to those who couldn’t play it and in the the end to those who did wanted to give the game a try but were (un)lucky to do so. Good thing for us, we managed to grab hold of the game 3 days before it was removed and even though I curse it every single time I die in it, the game still keeps me glued to it for hours. I’m sure most of you would like to agree and disagree with me on that but that’s entirely your call. So for those of you familiar with the game, can share your high scores with us and also tell us about your (most frustrating) experiences so far. Happy Flapping...
