BBC reporter Marc Cieslak covers the latest phones coming out at Mobile World Congress. Yeah, that's cool. But even cooler is how, along the way, he shows both Riptide GP and Shine Runner as examples of "graphically gorgeous gaming".
Dialect has just launched NVision magazine, a slick new Android digital magazine app that features in-depth articles and interviews about games, technology, movies, and a lot more. In its first issue, there's a feature story about next-gen tablet development that features interviews with Matt Small and Ralf Knoesel of Vector Unit, alongside some other developers you may recognize.
Definitely recommend checking it out -- not only because we're in it, but because the articles and production values are really top-notch. And despite what you might think, it's not just a big ad for Nvidia products, and you don't need an Nvidia tablet to run it. There's really a lot of good stuff in there. Plus it has a really sweet 3D interface.
Download it here from the Android Market -- excuse me, "Google Play".
Gadget Helpline just printed an article listing out the best apps to take advantage of the power of the ASUS Transformer Prime tablet, and guess which games they picked? Alongside Grand Theft Something-Or-Other they singled out Shine Runner.
We searched the Market for games that had been optimised for Tegra 3 devices – the Quad-Core processor that the Prime uses. There are several out there, but one that we came to land on was Shine Runner. It’s a high quality and extremely addictive game that requires you to race a hovercraft through swamplands as a hillbilly character, collecting money and delivering loot.
Thanks for the props, GH! We're glad you've enjoyed runnin' shine with us! We'll have to look into that other game at some point too.
A while back we had a little chat with Verizon about featuring some Riptide GP footage on Telemundo's popular telenovela "Una Maid En Manhattan".
We said, "Sure!" and signed some release forms and didn't hear much else about it.
Behold.... THE AWESOME!
(Seriously...thanks to Verizon, NVIDIA, and Telemundo for making this happen. We love it.)
The 2011 Best App Ever Awards has nominated Riptide GP for Best Game Controls (Android) ! It would make us ever so happy if you could take a moment to follow the link below and vote for us!
...And we came in 3rd. But we're in pretty good company, so I ain't complainin'. Thanks to everybody who voted!
