Dr. Mario World now available on iOS

Nintendo’s latest mobile game is now available for iOS devices, a day before its official target launch date. The game is based on the Nintendo game created in 1990 for the NES and Game Boy, and re-released/re-made a bunch of times over the years for various Nintendo consoles. Dr. Mario World, the iOS game available now, is, like its predecessors, a matching puzzle game in which you as Dr. Mario (or maybe you’re just a colleague of Dr. Mario? It’s somewhat unclear) cure “viruses” by matching pill colors to the little jerks. This version has a number of additional gameplay features compared to the first, which was pretty Tetris-like in play. It also focuses on drag-and-drop mechanics, instead of manipulating pills like Tetris blocks as they fall. For instance, you have other doctors from the rich Mario fictional world to call upon for help, including Dr. Peach and Dr. Bowser, Read the full article…

HQ Trivia has paid out $6M, but winners complain of delays

HQ Trivia’s troubles continue after a failed mutiny to oust the CEO, a 92% decline in downloads since a year ago and layoffs of 20% of its staff last week. Now TechCrunch has learned HQ has failed to install a new CEO after months of searching. Meanwhile, users continue to complain about delays for payouts of their prizes from the live mobile trivia game, and about being booted from the game for no reason while on the final question. Notably, Jeopardy winner Alex Jacob claims he hasn’t been paid the $20,000 he won on HQ Trivia on June 10th. This could shake players’ faith in HQ and erode their incentive to compete. Guys, I need your help. I won $20,000 on @hqtrivia on June 10 and still haven’t heard anything about payment. Sadly, I don’t think they’re going to pay. Please RT to tell HQ they should honor their jackpots. Read the full article…

Warframe promotional stunt brings a video game gun to the real streets of New York

To promote the free-to-play game Warframe, director Michael Krivicka brought a little taste of video game mayhem to New York City. In the video above, you can see bystanders asked to pose for photos with a model of the Opticor, an elaborate gun from the game. They’re warned not to pull the trigger — but what they don’t know is that a nearby police car and mailbox have been rigged to explode. That’s exactly what happens on-camera, leading to everyone’s shock and embarrassment. I spoke with Krivicka earlier this week to learn more about how the video was staged. He explained that the props, created by custom design and fabrication firm A2ZFX, were all synchronized with a remote control that could set off the gun, car and mailbox at the same time. The exploding effects used compressed air, with a small team taking about 15 minutes to reset everything between each Read the full article…

Apex Legends’ ranked mode will be the key to keeping it alive

Apex Legends is one week into its second season, which features a drastically changed map, a new character to master, and a pleasantly revamped battle pass with much-needed new rewards. But the most pivotal addition to the battle royale game is its ranked mode. Split into six tiers, this new mode will likely be the lifeblood of Apex Legends going forward, keeping it engaging for competitive players and carving out a community of top-tier streamers and aspiring pros who can form the backbone of a future e-sports scene. The good news is that Apex Legends’ ranked mode is wonderfully designed.

Microsoft’s prototype Xbox controllers for phones look ideal for xCloud

Microsoft is experimenting with prototype Xbox controllers for phones and tablets. The controllers attach to the sides of devices to provide an experience that’s similar to Nintendo’s Switch. “The success of the Switch is testament to the value of mobile gaming with physical controls,” explains a Microsoft Research paper, spotted by Windows Central. Microsoft has been experimenting with a variety of slide-in grips that can make the attachments far more flexible and less bulky than solutions that already exist like GameCase, GameVice, and ION iCade mobile. Microsoft Research first documented these prototype controllers back in October, and now Microsoft has even patented the idea. The patents and research don’t necessarily… Read the full article…

Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Latest Controversy Is About a Corgi’s Butt Wiggle

Pokemon Sword and Shield has been dogged by controversy ever since it was revealed not every Pokemon from past generations will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Also known as the National Pokedex, the removal of the popular feature has turned off a lot of longtime Pokemon fans, to the point where not even the recently revealed puppy Pokemon, Yamper, is immune to online haters. To be fair, it’s not so much Yamper itself that is receiving criticism, but Yamper’s animation work. Earlier this week, The Pokemon Company released a new Pokemon Sword and Shield trailer that, among other things, debuted the new electric Corgi-type Pokemon. In the video Yamper shows off a few moves, including Tail Whip. Or maybe it’s more of a tail shuffle? Read the full article…
