Aaa - I love the smell of a new thread. Wish I had something beyond the 3G so I could try RAGE. Oh well.

You can get the regular, non-HD version of rage for the 3G at a buck less right now.

Also, shape's webcamera app is on sale for $2.

Would anyone reccomend Zenonia or Hybrid?


It's alright. I found its quests to be super repetitive, but it is a polished game for sure. I don't regret buying it on sale

Amateur Surgeon 2 came out recently and as a result, both AS1 and AS2 are down to $1 each for the time being.

These are ports of Adult Swim flash games (And thus are free to play online.) and are not spectacular but I am such a giant Trauma Center fanboy that I enjoyed these for what they were. AS2 is better by MILES and if you only want one, that's the one to get, but AS1 also has a great many clever operations that you miss out on. Plus, the backstory, but it's almost more interesting to hear Alan tell it in AS2 than to live it in AS1.

They are both just charming games, in my opinion, more than you'd expect from Adult Swim.

The Phoenix Wright port, by the way, is functional and if you never played the game on DS, you should consider getting it here. I've only got a couple qualms with it. The menu you have to hold on to open and release to select is WAY too clunky and slow for it's own good, saving is too indeterminate for my tastes (You have a save option and what appears to be a home button restore option too. It looked ugly and not well thought out.), and the text is still unskippable until you beat the case and replay it (And then, naturally, you lose that savegame if you delete the app.), so there is absolutely NO reason to double dip if you already have PW1 on DS, but, if you don't, there's not likely to be a better chance for you to dive into the franchise.

..and what seems to be the problem?

Do you have any idea how many people have posted, "Tell me what apps to buy"? To those of us who view this forum several times a week, it gets pretty old. I don't mean to pick on you because you're far from the first (or the last), but it really clogs up these threads.

It's like walking into a gym and yelling, "So how do I get jacked up?" Or walking into a strip club and yelling, "So how do I get jacked off?" It's just sort of uncouth.

I think all these deja vu aspects just show that we need a prominent, general iDevice discussion thread on CAG. Then this one can be only about deals.

Having bought Game Dev Story because of the tiny sale... I must say, it might be my favorite iPhone game! It's not a game that you would say, "hey, this was built for the iphone!" But, it's the only game I've played that I have legitimately lost time playing. I started it for the first time last night and the next time I looked at the clock... over an hour had already passed! Simply ridiculous. It would be nice if the game got updated with some kind of leaderboard system in the future.

Thanks for the mini-review, RollingSkull! With the DS version of the first game becoming a bit hard to come by, I think I that I will go ahead and jump on this.

I'm figuring that towards the end of next year, I will have to refer to this as the iOS Devices Sales Thread. By then I think the AppleTV will be able to play games. Either with cloud based storage, or via bluetooth connection to the iPod/iPad/iPhone.

The Macintosh App Store will be an entirely different thread though since it wouldn't apply to as many people.



Eh. If/When Apple makes the AppleTV capable of using apps, I don't think it's going to use iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad apps because I think there'll be a lot of difference between the UI of a touchscreen-based device and a device without said interface.

Even if they did do that, I assume it'll be like today where most developers are making "universal apps" and "iPad apps" and pricing up the apps for the iPad. So you'll THEN have iPhone apps, iPhone Retina apps (aka what most "universal" apps are), iPad apps, and then AppleTV apps. With a few truly "universal" apps out there that work across most or all of these devices.

The older thread was a convenient place to look for apps very quickly, but with Ipad and AppleTV content coming to this one, I'm wait and see if that remains true here because now instead of knowing what I'm looking at is relevant to my device, I'll have to double-check to be sure it's not an iPad-only (or in the future AppleTV-only) app.

Considering there is no such thing as an Apple TV app at this point, and iPad app sales are few and far between, you can rest easy.

The idea is that you'll use your idevice as a controller for apple tv apps.

Also, maybe the first thread could include that same list of "essential apps" that get listed ad nauseum in this thread, because honestly, it gets annoying and takes a lot of space.

Until yesterday, a guy called Boss broke into their home and announced that none of the moles were allowed to have too much food. What the reason was that for the so called “low carbon”,they had to keep weight.The damned Boss tries every possible method to prevent the moles from taking food back home. The moles also fight to defend the dessert.
Now, in the game, you are the abominable Boss!"

Can you tell me what apps to buy? Also while we are on the subject, could you also tell me how to get jacked up while we're at the gym. On a related note, could you also tell me how do I get jacked off while we're at the strip club.

Depending upon the club it's going to range anywhere from $20-$100. It's figure into the private room charge. I assume. From movies. Not personal experience.

Damn it.

Hey man, that's uncouth. We can't go around talking about worthwhile apps in an app deal thread. There's obviously an entire section for iOS discussions that you should be using. If there isn't, it's somehow your fault for not creating it. I'd appreciate if everyone would continue to further pollute this thread with random whining about relevant app/device content that does not specifically mention a sale. I'm capable of ignoring that content, unlike those pesky lists of worthy applications. :lol:

I agree, I've ran into that problem with a few apps and it's quite annoying. I guess that's one way to screw the jailbreakers.

Question though, did you notice that when you downloaded it through iTunes or through your phone? I got the notice on my phone. I wonder if I bought it on iTunes if I would have been screwed.

Rage HD is my 4th app/game over .99 and it is worth it! Sound and graphics are awesome. Controls are a bit iffy but I don't see how they could have done them better. I wish I could touch items to pick them up because I find myself wasting ammo trying to do it.

It does not work on the iphone 4 fw 4.0.1 when downloaded off the appstore. Google it or look at the reviews. Many people have paid for it and gotten an error when downloading/installing.

There will eventually be Apple TV apps, just indirectly. What Apple will do is take whatever is on your iOS device's display and send it wirelessly over Bluetooth to your AppleTV and show it on the screen. Your iOS device will still do all the processing.

The AppleTV has nand flash inside of it but that's reserved for future OS updates, not necessarily app store use.
