TIME Magazine released its comprehensive top 10 lists of pretty much everything today. Of course, we all went straight to the video games part. Guess what was number one? Check out the full list below:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
- Batman Arkham Asylum
- DJ Hero
- New Super Mario Bros. Wii
- Geo-Defense Swarm
- Halo 3: ODST
- Assassin's Creed 2
- Uncharted 2
I would disagree with a number of those selections and their placement. I definitely think Uncharted 2 deserves better than the 10 spot, and some of those games don't even deserve to be on the list.
Rockstar games just announced Beaterator for the App Store for $4.99. Developed by Rockstar Leeds, Beaterator is a music creation app for the iPhone and iPod touch that has a deep, but simple functionality. Beaterator features thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar. By transposing and layering these loops and adding effects from the Beaterator's effects suite, it allows users to make professional-level music at their fingertips in a format that's portable, accessible, and fun to use.
DaVinci's Secrets is billed as a physics-based puzzle game centered around the inventions of Leonardo DaVinci, and while that is an accurate statement, there are some major problems that get in the way of the otherwise interesting concept.
It’s easy to say that most iPhone games are junk, rehashes or dumb two-second fun. That’s usually true, and when I was given a download code for this title, I instantly thought the same. I wasn’t told who the developer was, but I knew it wasn’t a biggy like EA, Ngmoco, Capcom or someone of that league. Then when I activated the code, I thought to myself "oh jeez, another Tetris clone for pay."
