From the premise to its execution, Bad Hotel is one of the oddest games you could ever hope to find in the App Store. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, mind you. I think we all enjoy a game that’s a little off-kilter now and then. I know I do, and Bad Hotel totally scratches that itch; it’s certainly one of the weirdest takes on tower defense I’ve ever played, and easily one of the coolest.

We’re not going to waste your time. The iPhone 5 was announced and goes on sale in nine countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada on September 21st. Another 22 countries can purchase theirs on September 28th. There phone comes in three different sizes: 16 GB for $199, 32 GB for $299, and 64 GB for $399.
Some people were underwhelmed by the announcement. Yes, there’s a couple of better cameras, LTE radio for 4G connectivity, and a longer 16:9 display. There are even some neat quirks for the norms out there, too, like the ability to capture panoramic pictures and use FaceTime in 720P. Apple claims to have over 200 new features on an iPhone 5 using iOS 6, but we’ll just have to wait and see what’s really worthwhile.

Welcome to another installment of “This Week in iOS,” your weekly installment of all the things I’m too lazy to write about.
This week, there’s a hidden drinking game. See if you can find it…
I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I am not proud to admit. I skipped the Wii. Not on purpose, mind you, as I really wanted one on day one. When it sold out and was re-stocked a month later, I still wanted one. Around sixteen months later, with the system still only found on eBay for around $400 (a sixty percent mark-up), I gave up and decided that, if I was going to spend that much, I’d just buy an Xbox 360 Elite, instead.
I’ve missed out on a lot of great Nintendo games; Super Paper Mario, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl spring to mind. But, like all those days Peter Gibbons missed in Office Space, I wouldn’t say I’ve been missing them.
The day has come. We make a pretty big deal out of Final Fantasy Tactics around these parts. It’s just one of those cherry-popping games that introduced a genre to most of us (See also: Plants vs. Zombies and, to many people younger than me, Final Fantasy VII). Sure, Tactics Ogre is probably better and I personally prefer Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, but you always remember your first. Especially if she’s missing a couple of fingers. I got a good feeling!
