Square Enix Reschedules E3 Press Conference

Square Enix has announced a new time for its E3 media briefing, which was originally scheduled to take place at 9am PT on June 16.

The Japanese publisher has opted to delay the media briefing by one hour, a move that is undoubtedly in response to Nintendo’s recent announcement that its Digital Event would be held at the very same time.

Our @SquareEnix #E32015 Press Conference will now start at 10am PDT instead of 9am PDT.

The Apple Watch Review: Week 1 – A Very Beautiful Less Functional Pebble

I’ve been struggling to come up with the best way to appropriately “review” the Apple Watch. We don’t do many hardware reviews of Apple products because our primary platforms are the iPhone and iPad, two product families that are arguably pretty dumb to review because in the case of the iPhone we’re on the 8th generation of a device that’s only gotten better. Additionally, the historical precedence of how awesome iPhones get with each revision leads most people to (admittedly, very safely) buy one on day one. Sure, there’s been a few *gates here and there between Antennagate and Bendgate, but by and large, every iPhone is better than the last one. I doubt very many people are out there who are waiting for the reviews to come in before buying a new iPhone, and people who do fall inside that demographic are likely just going to wait for the next (print) issue of Consumer Reports. Almost the exact same thing can be said for the iPad.

The Apple Watch, however, is a totally different animal. It’s a whole new product line for Apple, with an entirely new operating system and usage patterns. Of course it comes with all the lofty …read more

‘Wrassling’ Gets Much-Demanded Local Multiplayer Feature in Update

Wrassling [Free] is fun. But Wrassling has sadly been a solo affair. One can perhaps only be entertained by wrestling other people out of the ring for so long. That amount of time is probably longer than it’s taken for Wrassling to get its local multiplayer update, but better sooner than later for more wrasslin’ in Wrassling, I say. You can wrassle with a friend on the same device in either co-op mode, or in a versus mode, with or without AI wrasslers. With the five-button controls, it’s probably a better experience on an iPad, but we must make do with whatever wrassling equipment we’ve got.

Considering that these sorts of goofy physics games are always more fun with other people, getting multipayer is a huge addition to Wrassling. There’s also a couple extra welcome additions: you can change the color of your Wrassler, and you can pause the game too. For the glory of Slamdovia!
