The Drone

October 30th - via: flyingorc.com
I love playing with my phone, but I genuinely won't play a game like GTA III on it because I hate not having the feel of a controller. Phones are getting bigger and better games, but I genuinely need more than a touch screen. This project caught my eye for this reason. (Read More)

Drone: открытый, кроссплатформенный, минималистичный

October 29th - via: a320.emulate.su
Свежие онлайн игры, браузерные и клиентские. Скачать и играть. Такой вот проект открытого и кроссплатформенного Bluetooth-контроллера на базе RISC-микроконтроллера Atmel X64D3 всплыл на прошедшей неделе на Kickstarter. Drone от Evolution Controllers напоминает внешне своего престижного конкурента от SteelSeries и чем-то геймпад GameStick, отличается интересным (и, на мой взгляд, крайне логичным) расположением одной из двух пар его триггеров на задней стороне, компактностью, повышенной прочностью к нагрузкам и доступностью сразу в семи вариантах расцветки. (Read More)

October 28th - via: gearnuke.com
Controllers come in many shapes and sizes. From the first controller of Nintendo Entertainment System to the evolutionary design of the DualShock for the PlayStation One which included dual analog sticks, controllers have come a long way ever since. Controllers nowadays range from featuring touchpad to trackpads and also work wirelessly (Bluetooth, WiFi). With the recent increase in power of the smartphones and the gaming on them, many smartphone developers are also manufacturing a controller to be used exclusively for smartphones for gaming. These controllers however have certain limitations like they will only work with the smartphone that was manufactured by the organization. (Read More)

October 28th - via: king5.mlnwap.com
REDMOND, WA - The rise of mobile devices sparked a new casual gaming category that usually requires nothing more than your fingers to race an explorer through an ancient temple or send birds with nasty dispositions flying into chortling pigs.
