I will always have a special place in my heart for incredibly fast Japanese rhythm games, and DJMax Ray by Neowiz (iOS) has rekindled that everlasting love. With its tight controls, ubpeat soundtrack, flashy visuals, and insane difficulty, I can’t help but relive flashbacks of me frantically playing Guitar Freaks at a loud arcade, or tripping along to the latest Dance Dance Revolution game. Oh yeah, did I mention that this game is hard? And I mean (as KC would say) hhhhhhaard.

So, we all survived the Mayan Apocalypse. Hooray! But the big countdown to the end of the world got me thinking; What if we didn’t have so much time to prepare for the apocalypse? What if we only had 30 seconds to see it coming? Well, at times like these we need a hero…a Half-Minute Hero! [...]

This week’s pic was sent in by my long-time partner in podcasting, Jowy, who likes to sneak in a little bit of The Simpsons: Tapped Out at his work desk. I’m pretty sure having all Mac equipment on your desk helps camouflage the iPad from any nosy bosses. However, Jowy has been hard at work on his Subway Art Blog that we mentioned on the latest Podcast, so you should check that out!
Do you work on games while at work? Or do you chill out with them at home? Show us by sending a pic of where you play to KC [at] thepocketplayers.com.

There are also tutorials with pointers on how to increase your overall accuracy and speed. Though I wonder how much is applicable to everyday grammar and typing that doesn’t include the names of fictitious monsters. [...]

I just wanted to share this awesome YouTube video by MatthewPatrick13 who recounts (in a very soothing voice) the epic rise of Pokemon and analyzes just what made the franchise so revolutionary. [...]

Released over a year ago on iOS, Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery is finally available on Google Play. For an introductory price of just $1.99, this is music to my ears.
SS&S is a beautiful musical adventure that stimulates all your senses and really shouldn’t be passed up. You play a warrior monk exploring a mythic land full of mysteries, monsters and strange animals that follow you into your dreams. It also has a decent sense of humor. Expect a full review here real soon.
