With iPhones and smart phones becoming the norm, you can’t help but notice the emerging trend of indie games these days. With life becoming more fast-paced, we’re always looking for ways to have fun within a quicker and more easily accessible form, so does this mean that AAA games may one day be a thing of the past?

For those of you out there who like racing games and who own an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad this is for you! EA is having a sale for this weekend only of up to 80% off on a few of their racing iOS titles including the Real Racing franchise from Aussie development studio Firemint.
Recently Nintendo announced a massive price cut for the 3DS, dropping it from US$250 to US$169 (AU$350 down to AU$250 in Australia) due to poor consumer uptake of the new console.

2K Games and Firaxis Games, the creative minds behind the Civilization series have just ported another of their classic games to the iPad. “Sid Meier’s Pirates! for iPad” is a simulation game where you sail the seas of the Caribbean in the 1600′s as a pirate (surprised?) on a quest for gold and wenches… well there may not be wenches but there is gold aplenty me hearties.
Halfbrick have released an update for the marvellous iPad version of its extremely popular IP ‘Fruit Ninja’, it also comes with a discount for a limited time.
Hi guys and girls, as we now have iPads on the staff I thought I would start sharing my weekly adventures into the murky world of the iOS app store with you all. I like nothing better than finding and learning about new apps and playing the games while on the go. So with that in mind I am going to start collecting apps and letting you know about the best ones and of course the worst. I will make it short and sweet, unless it warrants a more detailed review. So strap yourself in and get ready for a Drop Bear App Dance.
