The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download April 18th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, April 18 @ 19:15:10 Eastern by

Nintendo and Level-5 discount several eShop downloads, XBLA adds another beat-em-up, and the PlayStation Network gets new powers from a dramatic accident with Injustice: Gods Among Us. And of course, none of that stops Valve and Steam from bringing new indie games to the masses. It's this week's Download!

If you need more on the newly added software for PlayStation platforms, PSLS's weekly PSN update is my source for The Download and you don't need to be a fanboy to visit. Steam

They say that every time an indie gets greenlit on Steam, an angel get his wings. I don't think that's true, but I do think that a hard working indie dev finally gets paid for their work.

iOS/Android Pick of the Week: Fish Out Of Water

Halfbrick Studios has already built quite a pedigree of success on the iOS platform. Fruit Ninja was there in the early days of the App store, reaping millions and millions of downloads, and Jetpack Joyride repeated that success with a transition into the free-to-play market and an explosive leap to PlayStation platforms. The studio's latest game is Fish Out of Water!

With the auto-runner experience in Jetpack Joyride, you'd be forgiven for assuming the studio was resting on its laurels, but Olympus, Errol, Finlay, Micro, Rocket and the Brothers all have wildly different control schemes to go along with the competitive focus. Hitting rings, collecting boost power, and going for a high rating are instantly addictive. As was the case with Halfbrick's previous games, Fish Out of Water! is friendly and approachable for all ages.
