Last week (well, technically last week) I introduced you all to the all-new, all-video Week in Gaming Apps. Some of you loved it. Others wanted a return to the classic format, with the giant pictures. So I did both, and that's why it's Monday now.
Remember the other week, when I promised a brand new Week in Gaming Apps that would change everything forever. Forget that. I was contact drunk. Let's get back to the tried-and-true format of yesterweeks, just in time for some of the greatest games ever.
Are you ready for another all-new, all-different Week in Gaming Apps? Well tough, it's happening.
In the last exciting episode of The Week in Gaming Apps, the feature apologized for wanting to kill you. Afterwards it was so ashamed it hid for three weeks. Guess who gets to write-up 20 fresh mobile games?
Look, we all make mistakes. None of us are infallible. Sometimes I forget to pay my cable bill until after the due date, Stephen Totilo thinks Majora's Mask is one of the best Zelda games ever, and the Week in Gaming Apps plotted your demise. Let's all just make up and move on.
I know you've been worried. You've been keeping your phone in that heavily-padded case in a locked lead box under your bed. Your iPad is in a safe, and not for its own protection. You've got handcuffs for your Nexus 7, and not the kinky kind. Well do not worry, my friends. None of this week's gaming apps will kill you.
Look, I am really sorry you are heading into the worst weekend of your life. I'd try to warn you, tell you what sorts of people, places and things to avoid, but fate doesn't work that way. You'll either ignore me completely, thinking I'm some sort of psycho, or you'll adjust your plans and fate will adjust right…
You kids get off of my lawn! Damn, that really does feel good. I turned 40 on Wednesday, so excuse me if I didn't play as many gaming apps this week as you young people did. These old eyes aren't what they used to be.
Well, almost everything. We had a good thing going, Talisman Prologue, and you had to go and completely screw things up. Great job. Don't know why I even bother anymore.
Thanks to games like Fish Out of Water! and Reef Run, I've spent more hours underwater this week than the two months following the theatrical release of The Little Mermaid, which my then-girlfriend made me watch at least a dozen times. That music, it never goes away.
I don't care if he does endorse Kotaku's weekly round-up of the gaming apps we played and reviewed, there is absolutely no reason for Commander Shepard to show up in the mosaic image.
Our weekly roundup of the new mobile games we've played over the past five day period is usually filled with physics puzzles and endless runners. Those things are indeed present this week, but tempered with some good old-fashion shooting people in the head.
This week's special late edition of the Week in Gaming Apps is brought to you by learning how to use an entirely new publishing system on the fly. It's a learning experience. Oh my goodness these images are so big.
As I mentioned in last week's installment of the Week in Gaming Apps, I spent the better part of this week moving all of my stuff from one place to another place. I figured the rest of the team might step up Monday through Wednesday, which is why there are only app reviews for Thursday and Friday. I suppose they were…
I'm not even supposed to be here today, but the portable nature of mobile gaming means that even in the middle of packing everything I own and putting it in another place, I still have time to play a ton of titles. Yay.
Want to know what it's like to be unfamous Kotaku mobile editor Michael Fahey for a week? Play around 30 gaming apps across three platforms while attempting to connect to SimCity in order to write a review of a game that you assure everyone will think is pretty good once they can connect to it. Also write some tips,…
I finally caved and picked up a new full-sized iPad this week, so it stands to reason that this Week in Gaming Apps be bigger and higher resolution than the last, with a plug that doesn't fit any other the ones that came before it.
