Crytek Seeks iOS Game Developers: Crysis On iPhone Coming Soon?

January 15th, 2011

Remember Crysis? And before that, the awesome Far Cry? Well, it seems as if Crytek, the guys behind two of the most visually impressive 3D game engines in history, are looking for people to head up an iOS game division. While there’s no word if we will be playing Crysis on our iPhones anytime soon, if the Unreal Engine can be squished into an iPhone, why not the CryEngine? (Develop, image courtesy of Joystiq)

January 8th, 2011

Too good to be true you ask? We think Apple may be up to the task of wowing us following the runaway success of the iPad; in the process jump-starting a tablet PC industry and encouraging entire armies of clones and bandwagon-jumpers. More details follow after the link.

Google Nexus S Reviews

January 7th, 2011

While our North American and British brethren have been playing with Google’s successor to the Nexus One since December 22nd, we here in Hong Kong are still left in the dark as to an official release date. Word is that the Nexus S will not be available for sale direct from Google, but will be released through mobile carriers here such as Smartone-Vodafone, 3 and China Mobile. Another thing that isn’t clear is whether Hong Kong will get the handset as a Google Nexus S, or by its other name, the Samsung GT-i9020.

As we don’t have the handset for review, we’ve collected a few reviews from reputable sites for those of you thinking of upgrading your current Android handset in the next couple of months. Enjoy:
