ORC: Vengeance for iPad review: dungeon-crawling done right

If you're tired of waiting for Infinity Blade: Dungeons to come out and have already played the snot out of Dungeon Hunter 3, I've got a great fantasy hack-and-slash game for you. ORC: Vengeance will be released soon by Chillingo and Big Cave Games, a new developer with some extensive experience from the PC and console gaming world. ORC: Vengeance features gesture-based combat, highly polished graphics, a novel equipment upgrade system and a unique angle on the usual goody-two-shoes fantasy plotline.

Google Nexus 7 vs. iPad 3, unboxing and first impressions -- from iMore!

No, that title isn't a typo! Sure, I'm the editor-in-chief of the #1 site for everything iPhone and iPad, but I've gotten my hands on Google's brand new Nexus 7 tablet, running the all new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and I aim to put it head-to-head, tablet-e-tablet against Apple's new iPad.

And I'm starting with the traditional unboxing and some quick hardware impressions.

Cinemassacre Videos for iPad review: Beware what you wish for

I'm a huge retro console and arcade video gaming fan. There are a plethora of sites that cover that material, but one of my favorites is Cinemassacre, and the Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) in particular. AVGN is a saucy, foul mouthed, brilliant reviewer, whose material is always well researched and presented. However, going to the Cinemassacre website would often result in errors for me on my iPad. The videos just wouldn't play right or would disappear completely after the page finished loading. I don't know if I should blame Cinemassacre, Apple, or Adobe for this, or if there's enough blamecake to go around,

Imagine my surprise and delight when I saw Cinemassacre had a videos app available on the App Store, and that it provided universal binary support for the iPad. It was a paid app, which was also a surprise, but I figured there must be some premium content or special features in there commensurate with the $1.99 price tag.

Long story short, there wasn't.

For many, their iPhone is a tool frequently used for staying on task and remembering to do things when they need to be done. That's why there isn't any shortage of reminder apps for iPhone in the App Store. Checkmark, Due, and TellMeLater are three of our favorites, but are any of them worth ditching Apple's built-in iOS reminders app?

Elevation Dock for iPhone review

Consigned to having to charge by cable rather than waste money on a dock that'd give me fits, I fell into a deep depression, haunted by the white iPhone dock cables I had strewn about the house. Then, one day in mid-December my dreams were answered. An upstart Oregon company by the name of Elevation Lab was kicking ass on Kickstarter with their proposal for the iPhone dock to beat all other iPhone docks: the Elevation Dock.

The Impossible Game for iPhone review

I'm not going to lie, deciding to review The Impossible Game for iPhone was not an easy decision, because, well, it's nearly impossible! I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't even made it past the first level, yet. But despite that, I'm still having fun and am totally addicted. That's why I've decided The Impossible Game is worthy of a review.
