Get ready for another update to Angry Birds Seasons this weekend. Rovio Mobile has posted the trailer for the Year of the Dragon update to Seasons. You can check out the latest teaser trailer below.
Chair, the Epic game studio that brought us Infinity Blade and now Infinity Blade 2 has released Infinity Blade 2 1.0.1. The update is designed to fix a start up crashing issue that customers, including myself, have been experiencing on the iPad 1 and iPhone 4.
The game was released back on Wednesday. Infinity Blade 2 is a universal game, meaning that you will be able to run the game on both your iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad 2 without having to pay for it again.
Infinity Blade 2 sells for $6.99 via the iTunes Store. The 1.0.1 Infinity Blade 2 update is free to people who have already purchased the game already.
After installing the 1.0.1 update on my iPad 1, I’m still having trouble running Infinity Blade 2. Epic Games is working on on a fix
. After installing the update, make sure that you reboot your iPad before trying to play the game. I’ve been able to get a little further into the game before it crashes, but I don’t get to see the introductory cut scene movie.
Infinity Blade is an amazing game for the iPhone and iPad. Starting at 11:00pm Eastern time later this evening, Epic is expected to begin selling Infinity Blade 2 for iOS.
“Beyond the enhanced visuals, Infinity Blade 2 also advances the storyline of the original game and expands the combat experience to include more options and less predictable enemies.”
Infinity Blade is one of those games that I can play often and not get bored with. I’m looking forward to more stunning graphics and touch-tastic RPG play tonight.

I just saw this over on Boy Genius Report and thoughts of playing Halo on my Mac (without Parallels) started dancing in my head.
“Programmer Andrew Russell is working on a project that will undoubtedly pique the interest of game developers around the world. Dubbed ExEn, Russell’s open source software allows devs to port XNA games to iOS, Silverlight and in the near future, Android and OS X as well. In practical terms, this software gives developers a much easier way to take games they have built for Xbox 360, Windows or Windows Phone 7 using Microsoft’s XNA framework and port them to the iPhone or iPad, the Web (Silverlight), and soon to Android devices and Mac OS X!”
Firemint, recently acquired by Electronic Arts, has put their popular Real Racing series of games on sale for Father’s Day weekend!

PopCap’s popular game Plants vs. Zombies HD for iPad and iPad 2 is on sale right now for $1.99 (iTunes link). PvZ, as it is often referred to, is normally $6.99.
If you haven’t played before, the premise is that you control a variety of plants and mushrooms to stop the zombie horde that is invading your yard from the cemetery across the street. Oh, and your neighbor, Crazy Dave shows up every now and again to sell you more seeds and other important upgrades. The best part of the game, for me anyway, are all of the wonderful plants and things in your zombie busting arsenal. It’s hard to look cute and slightly irritated all at the same time.
Sounds weird, I know. Until you play it. My kids and I started off playing the web version, and I decided that we like the game enough to buy the Mac OS X version. For a while there, I was super addicted to the game because I wanted to make it all the way to the end of the game and not get stuck on a tough level.
PopCap also has a version of PvZ for the iPhone/iPod touch for $2.99 (iTunes link). You can also purchase the Mac OS X version from the Mac App Store for $9.99 (App Store link) or, if you’re on a Windows PC, you can purchase the game directly from the PopCap website.
Rivio’s Angry Birds Rio has been updated to include the 30 new Beach Volley levels.
The update is available now for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Angry Birds Rio for iPhone/iPod touch is $.99; the Angry Birds Rio HD edition for iPad is $2.99. The upgrade with the new levels is free to all existing Angry Birds Rio customers.
Angry Birds Rio, like other versions of the Angry Birds franchise, includes Game Center achievements and new hidden fruits to find. Once you have completed episode one, Blu and Jewel will be added to your avian arsenal.

Google Android and HP webOS users, unfortunately, still have to wait for Rovio to release the Beach Volley update.
