So I mentioned this on another thread on here but what are your guys thoughts on phone gaming in particular? I enjoy tetris but it gets old after a while and stuff. As I mentioned I've been playing God fo War on my phone and I have to say, I think that games like that and IP like Tom Clancy coming to phones is really cool. These things are getting powerful now and it's a legitimate platform to make games for at this point.

God of War on your phone? Huh? Where? Even though it must be a bitch to play (my Mogul's d-pad isn't exactly up to the task...).

As for me I mainly play slower games. Turn based RPG titles like The Quest (pseudo-Daggerfall) and Legacy (psuedo-Eye of the Beholder) (both with ample demos over at http://www.redshift.hu/) for example. Something that doesn't rely on constant action to get by (as the device just isn't suited for that type of playing).

You know, I just realized you two are talking about actual phone games (Java based games for a standard cell phone) verses my Smartphone/PPC.

^^yeah, in the case of god of war, I just downloaded it from my carrier and played. To be honest though, I had some of the reservations you said, mainly about the keypad. I think they've done a good job of using it for various actions though.

I saw a pretty cool promotion where you can text "kratos" to 4sony and you can download the god of war game on your phone. That's very cool.

We'll be doing some contests to give away copies of the God of War title for phones.  We also have an upcoming interview with the devs.  Yea, we are cool like that. slywink

+1.  Surprisingly fun little game.  "Orcs & Elves" was a also a fun dungeon romp in the same vein.

There's supposedly a cell phone version of "Guitar Hero" coming out.  That could prove...interesting.

Bejewelled is actually a good game to play while you're sitting on the crapper at work.  Just make sure to turn off the sounds otherwise you may get weird looks when you exit.

Doom RPG was great.  In fact... I have the only walkthru FAQ out there for it  icon_mrgreen

I was going to get Orc & Elves, but I'm just going to wait for it to come out on the DS.

Yeah, a lot of them are being ported all over and stuff. Some others are simply ports to the cell. I think we will probably see a lot of orginal IP come to the cell as it becomes a more legit gaming device. Something like God of War with it's own storyline. Especially since you are probably going to start seeing more and more convergant devices.
