Well some people, albeit not that many, have bought a 3DS and that also looks like a third-party piece of tat! :mrgreen:

Bought SF II collection for 69p.

It actually controls much, much better than I thought it would, quite enjoying quick blasts in my free time!

Super Monkey Ball 2 was free this morning, and in theory should stil be, from what i've heard not the best versions, but probably worth a go

http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/super-mo ... 70486?mt=8

I heard that Streets of Rage 2 would be free later this week too so keep an eye out for that one around thursday (U.S. time)

had a blast on vidrhythm the other week on my brothers ipad, its a new game from harmonix and its amazing fun. Had all of us crying with laughter (even got my kids to become instruments in it), its one of the only apps that i would consider buying an ipad for (just hope it comes out for osx instead as im skint)

Elites Speccy app wasnt bad, but there was a lot of crappy games packaged together with some decent onces. But i am looking forward to this....

Lots of classic games from various platforms, should be some good titles coming along hopefully. Probably be out this weekend.

Modern Combat 3 is out this wednesday night, need to get some space on my ipod as i can imagine its a hefty file size. Do like my FPS's on iOS, didnt think they would work too well but they really do. Roll on weds night

Looks good for iOS games this week, these are all available midnight tonight....

Modern Combat 3

Looks a great FPS game, apparently $10 NZ so that might mean about 5 quid

Riptide

Jet ski game, from the video/pictures it looks great, bit pricey at $5 perhaps

Shantae: Risky's Revenge
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=111520
Apparently a Nintendo DS game ported over, looks very good

Spintrip

Looks a decent platforming-ish type of game

Fair few other games out as well

Currys and PC World sell them so next time you visit one - they do seem quite sturdy and the stick and buttons feel really good

Thanks for that and I will do so next time I'm near a branch. I won't be buying one though as I don't have an iPad - I just posted that pic for those who might be interested and cos I thought it looked cool.

Not a game, but you can now access live streams for games like Starcraft II, Halo etc from TwitchTV's new app:

If you've never watched any before, I would really recommend it. Had a go on the app earlier on my 4S and the quality was excellent.

May get shot down for this one, as I'm pretty contranian with my ipad game choices normally, and avoid anything in the top ten....

But Bike Baron is very addictive, reminds me of multiple bike games from consoles and computers from way back. Just go, stop and rotation controls. Currently number 1 on chart for 69p

I must now go and hang my head in shame

Streets of Rage 2 is free for a few hours today (was 24 hours from some point in the U.S. yesterday)

Actually played surprisingly well for an an iphone game with oscreen d-pad that i was playing blown up 2x on an ipad

Some of the sound effect sound quite wrong though, and the bass in the music distorts the speaker, but it's alright for free i guess
