As spring hits into high gear, we look forward to brining you all of the bloomin’ gaming news (get it? Because flowers are blooming and so are our artic…ah, forget it!)
This month’s feature story hits on two things the masses are loving the most – casual games and social media; a convergence that’s creating a super power toolset in the world of social influence. We also took some time to jump into the Kickstarter rabbit hole for promising new games we’d put our money behind, and got sucked back into a little-known title called Angry Birds thanks to its evolving gameplay mechanics and marketing mix.
The team also dropped in for a quick look at The Draw Something phenomenon and how quickly a mobile game has spun off websites dedicated to the most creative and disgusting drawings. And lastly, we recount the latest development of the Xbox 360′s continued evolution into a one-stop entertainment box.
