With Games From Demi Lovato And DNCE

As musicians large and small look for new revenue streams to make up for lost sales these days, anything is in play, and the mobile gaming space has seen quite a few big names launch branded offerings that will hopefully entice their fan bases into spending their hard-earned cash on in-app purchases, where there is plenty of money to be made.


Pictures above from left to right is Kevin Jonas, CEO of Philymack, Phil McIntyre and Joe Jonas attend Fast Company Innovation Festival 2016 held recently at Skirball Center, NYU on November 2, 2016 in New York City, where they announced they are forming a new mobile gaming company to release a bunch of free-to-play games based on the name-brand of their signed artists, for fans to enjoy and of course to hopefully rake in tons of money from microtransactions buried thru-out the games that will be needed to...

No crazy promises attached to this pleasant walk-and-survive smartphone game.

Wednesday saw the release of a new video game from famed developer Peter Molyneux and his team at 22Cans. Yes, we were surprised by the news, as well.


Peter is back with a new game, and this is one developer that has gotten alot of 'bad press' over his hyping and promises and not coming thru with them, so instead of getting mixed up again with a bunch of drama like what occur with 'Godus' which was similar to all of Peter's previous games, it didn't live up to the hype, so he has decided to silently releasing his latest mobile game onto the mobile stores without any teasers, hype, or reviews, just let it coast on its on, without any 'hype' or 'press' to turn gamers away.

After establishing OWN as a cable behemoth, the media mogul wants to expand its digital presence and put the brand right in viewers' hands.

It turns out that it might be possible to "live your best life" and still be mildly addicted to a mobile game. That's if Oprah Winfrey has her way, at least.


Just when you thought the world of 'mobile gaming' have everything you could think of 'brand-wise' from RockStars, to Idols, to Actors, etc. we forgot the one important thing OPRAH was missing in the land of Casual Gaming, well no longer as her OWN network, figured out a very large percentage of their millions of TV viewers are infact sitting on their sofas playing games on their mobile devices even while watching a popuar Oprah TV show, so why not rope them in also, and OWN both their TV sets and MOBILE and MINDS! :)

Eden Games’ Gear.Club races through the 1 million installs mark in Apple App Stores within 5 short days.


There was many analysts last year when Eden Games announced their Gear.Club claiming that they would not be able to do it, win over the hearts of 'racing fans' with a mobile racing game, its just not the same as 'console-quality', but now they have proven their vision, that it is possible to design and develop and release a high-quality racing game on mobile device, because they have set a new world record already with over 1 Million happy download'ers in less than 5 days, not even a week since release!

MOBILE_PS4.jpg
Mobile is taking over the old-style of 'gaming', but the flood of millions of PlayStation 4 gamers is taking over the PC World!

About 78 percent of U.S. gamers play on their smartphones, according to a survey by PayPal and SuperData Research. And about 49 percent of U.S. males play on the PlayStation 4, compared to about 48 percent who play on PC.


Yet another study into the changing landscape of 'gaming', but this one is claiming that 'mobile gaming' is taking over older ways of playing on PC's and Consoles, but on the other hand it seems the surge of millions of gamers buying PS4's is knocking the PC world down in numbers, which is weird seeing how little the PS4 offers in in graphics compared to the PC, but maybe 4K PRO will help. :)

But their new Mobile Game will NOT be for FREE, there WILL be a FEE to unlock the GAME after a few levels!

In an interview with Bloomberg, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said the company hopes to achieve as much success with Super Mario Run as Niantic (and the Pokemon Company and Nintendo) have achieved with Pokemon Go.


Nintendo wants their next mobile adventure to be just as popular as their AR wonder 'Pokemon GO', but they are taking a different marketting approach for 'Super Mario GO', instead of being 'totally free', and then packing the game with 'micro-transactions', they are going to make it 'limited game', not as simple as DEMO, but good number of 'levels' to enjoy, but then afterwards there WILL be COST to UNLOCK the FULL game, a one-time FEE, so parents don't have to worry that their kids are raking up bills playing Mario.

VR could help bring us back to an Gaming Era before daily DLC, in-game video ads, and MicroTransactions!

When mobile gaming went mainstream, so did the free to play and ad-supported models, along with microtransactions. These trends eventually trickled into the normal video game industry, and gamers were hit by wave after wave of day 1 DLC, microtransactions in $60 games, and in-game advertising.


Is it possible that the way Virtual Reality works, that we could possibly see the return of games that are 'premium' and complete, and not filled with in-game video ads, daily DLC packs, and microtransactions.

Reason for popular games like Pokemon Go to lose 80% of their original players was no new fresh content quick enough!

Consumer research firm Nielsen, identifies when players most want updates, breaks down what types of content work for which mobile games, and to keep their new players on-board, fresh content needs to be added between the 3 to 5 weeks mark after launch.


It seems for the mobile game to stay on top of the charts and continue to be popular and to maintain those that started to play the game first when it launched, developers need to be able to quickly add new fresh content to their games between the third and fifth weeks after it was launched, if they fail to do so, they will quickly lost their userbase, as their players move on to other newer games.

DeNA shutters U.S. offices as the early leader in mobile gaming retreats to Japan

Despite Nintendo's initial success in its foray into mobile gaming, with Pokemon GO becoming a global phenomenon over the summer, and Super Mario Run being lined up to be an unprecedented success, some breaking news has suggested that everything isn't necessarily going as straightforward as the prevailing narrative suggests.


Even tho Pokemon Go was very popular all around the world, it seems the success of it in Western World was not enough for Nintendo's mobile partner DENA to keep up an running USA office, instead they are going to manage all future game releases from Japan only, which means some fans are worried that in the future after Super Mario Run is released, that Nintendo's mobile arm will be Japan/Asia only, similar in setup to Sony's new direction in producing Mobile PlayStation games will be...

Augmented reality, fueled most recently by the Pokémon GO sensation, and virtual reality gaming opportunities are beginning to really open up on mobile platforms.


Pokemon Go has been so popular that people are no longer just playing it in their free spare time, they have found out there is even Pokemon to be captured nearby or even inside their office workplace, and as such it has become a problem for some employers to control or limit the usage of the app while you are working, but when it comes to security there is alot more problems then just running around capturing monsters instead of working, because the employee's cellphone itself depending on the games or apps installed on it, could be leaking...
