We delved into the world of Sword & Sworcery, drank deeply from a new Tapper, found the intersection of Mario and Lemmings, and drilled our way to high scores this week, highlighting a new Gaming App of the Day as we tend to to Monday through Friday.

It was a week that was also threatened by a renewed addiction to Angry Birds. How could we let that happen? Again?! *sigh*

It's not really an issue, more of a minor gripe, but I wish Kotaku did a better job of letting us know if a game is for Android or iOS. When a PS3 exclusive title is revealed or reviewed, I don't have to scroll through the review to find out.

Sometimes reviews are up front about this, other times I have to go searching for the information. Maybe a standardized system or rule for dropping in that information as early as possible should be added.
