Scribblenauts for the Nintendo DS

5th Cell's series of wordy puzzle games may be due for another release soon, as a domain registration belonging to Warner Bros. points to something called Scribblenauts Remix. The news comes from the Twitter feed of superannuation, who proves again that he possesses detective skills that rival Batman's.

With two Nintendo DS Scribblenauts games in the bank, I think it's likely that this tite will land on a different platform, or more than one, between the 3DS, Vita and mobile operating systems. I suppose a console release is possible too, but all of the portable platforms seem more suited to this type of game. The title's "Remix" certainly suggests a move somewhere.

What do you think? Are we getting another Scribblenauts game or is this actually just the start of 5th Cell's secret campaign to redefine every word in the english dictionary?

 

 

Machine Gun Jetpack. Just let that title soak in for a second. If you've played Halfbrick Studios' (Fruit Ninja creator) mobile game Monster Dash then you're probably already familiar with that weapon of high-flying destruction. Now it gets to star in its own game, another endless side-scroller in which Barry Steakfries must avoid death while flying ever-forward toward... well, no one knows. It's endless, remember?

The above video highlights the many ways this one-touch game can be played. While the MGJ is Barry's primary mode of conveyance, pickups can be collected that put you in control of other vehicles, such as a leaping mech and a bird-like plane with flapping wings. 

...just watch the video, okay?

Many of us are still chuckling over the ridiculousness of Hothead Games' two DeathSpank releases while looking forward to the third, awesomely titled entry in the series, The Baconing. Before you step into the shoes of "he who spanks death" once more, however, you'll have another chance to give Hothead your money with the August 4 release of the iOS game, Kickin' Momma.

Visually, the game looks like the bastard child of Worms and Peggle. At its most basic level though, the game tasks you with using the blue Momma beast-thing to kick her babies into a field of multicolored gems and such. Points are scored, children are abused, everybody wins. Is it mildly disturbing? Absolutely. Is the above trailer hilarious though? Yup. It sure is.

Marvel Pinball Coming To Virtually Every Platform Before The End Of 2012

ZEN Studios struck a nerve among gamers with its Marvel Pinball downloadable release for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

Angry Birds and cake. Two delicious, utterly enjoyable items with absolutely no downsides or negatives to speak of. But add a dash of reality to the mix and you get nightmare fuel, courtesy of Threadcakes, an annual contest which sees art from Threadless t-shirts shake 'n' baked into cakes. Want an example? Why not check out the Angry Birds cake below?

Electronic Arts Looks Toward More Price Cuts, Digital Sales, Motion Controls

EA's been making a lot of noise lately about its Origin download system, and today, the company has demonstrated and showed off a huge part of the service: Origin Mobile, the portable arm of the system. Origin will connect your mobile gaming and your PC gaming, allowing you to use the same login with both, share leader boards, check on your pals, as well as allowing for some pretty innovative cross-platform gaming.

In the EA Summer Showcase demo, EA employees showed off a game of Scrabble played between four distinct devices, an iPhone, an iPod, an Android and Facebook. Perhaps this is a little glimpse into the future of multiplatform gaming.

Pokemon

The Pokemon Company announced their plans to bring a free Pokemon-based rhythm game to iPhone and Android smartphones, but don't get your hopes up about an official Mario app from Nintendo or other Nintendo IP iOS or Android games. Nintendo PR Yasuhio Minagawa clarified to Bloomberg that, "there is no change, and no plans for the future."

If you're confused, here's the lowdown: Pokemon actually isn't owned by Nintendo, the IP is actually owned by (who else?) The Pokemon Company, which Nintendo owns a significant share of: 32% to be exact. Nintendo also acts as the distributor of Pokemon titles, as well as owning part of the Pokemon trademark.

In a classic case of "no good deed goes unpunished," Nintendo's stock rose just a smidgen shy of 5% following reports of the Pokemon rhythm game, and subsequently dropped by 3.7% following Minagawa's clarification.

Do you think Nintendo should embrace mobile platforms?

The zombie apocalypse, when it happens - and it will happen - is bound to be a tragic event, full of blood, gore, and little girls falling out of windows. So thank goodness for Plants vs. Zombies, which reminds us that the zombie infection, subsequent turning and merciful death of a close friend can also be hilarious to watch. Or more specifically, thank Dorkly.com, who gave the Internet the lovely gift you can find below:

It's getting to be lunch time around here. Want to know what I'm hungry for? Tell you what, just lean in a little closer, and let me have a little nibble...

 Gay Video Game Coming: iPhone Game Features Openly Gay Super-Hero

I've always had suspicions about the sexuality of super-heroes*. They run around in public in brightly colored tights with capes and codpieces, always have perfectly done hair (think of Superman's permanent spit-curl), and seem awfully friendly with their super-hero pals. The entire Justice League wouldn't look out-of-place at a Pride Parade, honestly. There's no doubt at all about SuperGay, though. The star of just-launched iPhone game SuperGay & the Attack of his ExGirlfriends is clearly, openly and proudly gay-- SUPER gay, if you will.

SuperGay's creators, Barcelona-based developers Klicrainbow, claim the pink clad crusader's video game is the first ever to feature a gay main character, and who am I to doubt them? Judging from the screenshot, it's a 2D side-scrolling platformer, but a full plot synopsis is under the cut.

In Need for Speed: The Run, Electronic Arts displays a journalist-like taste for puns, change, and high-speed car chases.

So what are EA and Black Box doing to make this race the most exciting yet? Check out the video below and hear it straight from EA Producer Alex Grimbley!

Margarittaville Facebook

Lock up your grandmas! Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Online is coming to the Facebooks, the iPads and the iPods. The wizened singer-songwriter is lending his name and vision to a THQ produced tropical island themed social game that promises to capture the unique, sun-burned, carefree lifestyle that office drones of a certain age yearn for, but will never experience. It will be available in fall 2011.

"The Margaritaville laidback state of mind is inherently social, and THQ has captured the spirit of that lifestyle in this game," said Buffett in a press release.  "With Margaritaville Online, fans across the globe can party together any time and any place."

There’s nothing that says Healthy Week like enjoying the warm glow of your computer screen. But I'd like you to know that Indie games care about your waistline and your health just as much as the next developer does. For this week’s feature, I picked out five games – well, “game” could be stretching it for a couple of these – that help you get in shape or learn something about your body.

I’ve also dipped into the world of iPhone for a couple of these titles since the platform best facilitates mobility and ease of use for those on the go. Just because they’re on a smaller screen doesn’t make them any less in need of your attention. Sit back and get ready to get physical. These five titles prove that indie games are good for the heart as well as the mind.
