KakaoTalk, a messaging system used all over Asia and especially in South Korea, continues to be the go-to social network for games in South Korea. Cookie Run, like I♡Coffee and Dragon Flight before it, is another example of a simple game that blows up simply through leveraging social aspects. In this case, it’s an endless runner aimed almost directly at kids. It’s also one that I, as a man-child who is surrounded by children on a daily basis, happen to play myself.

If you’re playing Real Racing 3, there’s a good chance you’re toiling away race after race, trying to hoard enough R$ and Gold for the next big upgrade or a shiny new car. If that sounds a lot like you, then you might need a little help farming cash and fame.
Here’s a quick video tutorial for you Real Racing 3 fans. Don’t forget to check out our guide for more tips from myself and the RR3 community.
Real Racing 3, the game the Internet hated way more than regular people did, has announced the next content update with the following teaser trailer.
Seven, count ‘em, SEVEN generations of Porsche 911′s are coming to the next update. If the previous teasers are any indication, the update should hit in a matter of days and completely ruin any chance I have of ever completely updating my Real Racing 3 guide again.
If you haven’t played the game in a while, perhaps it’s time to give it a shot again. Reduced timers, changes to the way you reach content, and fixed Endurance races are just the tip of the (come on… think of an iceberg equivalent for cars, Fade…) exhaust pipe? Fender? Wait, what do you hit with cars? Pedestrians? Someone help me out here.
Seven more cars now brings Real Racing 3 to a grand total of 69 cars, a plurality of which will now be Porsche 911′s.
Over the past year or so, I’ve mentioned “for Kakao” games numerous times. It’s a strictly-Asian phenomenon that leverages South Korea’s massive Kakaotalk social network in the same way that Facebook got your mother to talk about her stupid farm.
PATI Games is one of the success stories of Games for Kakao with massively popular “I Love Coffee.” With a total player base of 8,000,000 Korean gamers, or about 16% of the population of South Korea, they’re kind of a big deal and have sticker books to prove it.
Now, PATI Games is adding third-party publisher to their resume. The company has added Happy Street to the “for Kakao” network. This, to my knowledge, marks the first time a game “for Kakao” didn’t originate from Asia. Now, Koreans will know the joy of bird poop, too.
Happy Street (해피스트릿), a game that I’m personally very fond of, made great use of Apple’s GameCenter integration in the past. It will likely do the same for Kakao users.
Well, that was unexpected.
Capcom is dusting off the Breath of Fire franchise once more, announcing Breath of Fire VI and a multitude of other games during a presentation over on NicoNico Video (premium subscription required… lame) as seen in these screen captures from this blog post on Esuteru. It’s coming to PC, tablets, and mobile phones sometime in 2014.
The latest update for Real Racing 3, revealed just a few days back, has already dropped adding a new track in the Dubai Autodrome.
More importantly, four new cars are now available for purchase in the Dodge Charger R/T, Dodge Charger SRT8, Lexus IS F, and Lexus LFA. The IS F and LFA are the first two Lexus cars in the game, bringing the total number of car manufacturers to 14. This also takes the total number of cars available to a whopping 53!
The update also brings 50 new events to the table. While most people came into the game with trepidation in the transition to free-to-play, only one of the four new cars costs Gold to purchase at a fair 130 Gold for the Lexus LFA. You can get that in a couple of days if you’ve got the gumption and a stable of cars to avoid waiting on the repair timers.
Real Racing 3 fans were greeted by an interesting push notification today.
The previous Real Racing 3 update brought the Chevrolet brand to the game with two cars, the Chevrolet Cobalt SS and Chevorlet Camaro ZL1. What we didn’t know was that there was more goods under the hood.
A third Chevrolet car, the Corvette ZR1, was unlocked in Real Racing 3 and is now available for purchase for 50 Gold.
