    Is it me or have a bunch of great and awesome games been coming out? I can't keep up! I'm even falling behind on promo code reviews. Second screenshot are promo games still to review and first are some currently-being played games. It doesn't help that PicGrid just came up with an upgrade and Griddler Party just came out.


    P.S. If you gave me a promo code and I haven't reviewed your game AND you're not on the to-be-reviewed page let me know, so that I can add you! :)

    I'm falling behind as well. And the pipeline of new games all around $6 is packed! I'm really going to have to consider my purchases carefully. I almost bought mega man 2 but I think after reading that money is going to wolfenstein whoo hoo!!

    Current games announced in the last 5 days that I can't wait for:

    Uniwar
    Fifa Soccer
    NBA Live
    Madden NFL
    Myst
    Zenonia
    Touch KO
    NBA Basketball

    Those are in some random order, with lots of overlaps. I don't think top gun's really that exciting, what with Galaxy Of Fire's release in the US and Europe so imminent.

    With all due respect Gator, do you really need to show a screenshot of all the promo's you've received?
    Wasn't it sufficient to simply say you're behind in playing games because of all these good games and updates without throwing in a pic (even though I like your theme) ;)

    Falling behind is an understatement.
    I think i have 11 or 12 games that I have not played yet.
    Having this vast arcade my pocket is sheer awesomeness.
    I spent $25 every saturday at the "Gold Mine" arcade in Fashion Island shopping center when I was a kid. Now I get to practically do the same thing but during a meeting!

    I like screenshots :D This is the only portable device I own that does screenshot. AND... maybe it gets people to buy them ;) I know sometimes I buy a game after I see it in someone else's iDevice.

    That was VERY well stated because that's how I feel! lol.

    I'm hopelessly behind in games plus apps. I'm a fan of RPG, TM and even a TD fan so these games take time to play. I have bought LOADS of games in the last week forcing me to swap out other good games.

    I've been invited to be an interviewer on a site so that means more codes=more used up space. Dear God...chaos! lol

    I wish I was falling behind in promo codes. I'm only behind with reveiwing bmt
     
  13. I don't think there are that many good games out yet. In a year from now how many of these games will still be worth picking up to someone who just acquired an iphone? I reckon it'll be a few but not that many of the current selection. Sure there be quite a few worth it but I don't think they've been released yet. In a year they'll be so much better and we'll laugh and having said so and so is a great game.

    Everyone has their favorite genre of games and I try to cover all genres (doesn't work all that well though due to bias) but carry I on do. Lately past couple months I've noticed many of the same exact games coming out but they trump the one out currently. That is a good thing though as a more polished game usually equates to a better gaming experience. Word to the wise - don't spend more than 10 to 15 mins on crap games. Sometimes I'll spend 30 mins on a crap game and think what the crap was I thinking.

    I think if you spend more than 5 minutes with a game it is not a "crap" game.
    1/2 the games are not worth more than 5 minutes time.

    I'm also falling behind. I have about two home screens of apps I do not play anymore but which I still want to review because they are great. But too much new stuff is coming every day and wants to be reviewed as well. I'm even falling behind with GDC articles. And then there are the games which I have on my iPhone because I love them and want to spend some time with them.

    If someone likes to write german reviews or news, just talk to me :D.


    How do arn and co manage this??

    We submitted UniWar last Monday morning (April 6). We hope it will be out soon but Apple does not offer anyway of knowing unfortunately.

    It's games like this that help contribute to backlog :) I love turn based strategy games, so this is definitely on my "get" list. I might even get a chance to review it if I ever get caught up! The woes of playing games for journalism's sake...
