Final Fantasy III now available for iPad

If you’re looking for a reason to call out sick on Friday, here it is. On Thursday Square Enix followed up its March launch of Final Fantasy III for the iPhone by releasing a new iPad version. We’ve been playing the iPhone version for a while and appreciate the crisp 3D graphics and easy controls. Plus, you’re guaranteed to get more than just a few hours of game play out of this epic title that first made its debut in 1990 — before being relaunched on the Nintendo DS in 2006. Square Enix promises new and improved 3D visuals and story sequences on the iPad, quicker browsing through monster bestiary and other game records, and new visual designs for Job Mastery cards. The user interface has also been revamped to take advantage of the iPad’s larger display. There’s a reason we have a few Sumolounge beanbag chairs in our office… and this game is it. More →

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 for iOS now available

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 for iOS now available

Look, we know what it feels like to be the only one left in the office while the senior partners all go out for a not-so-quick 18. But that’s OK, because today EA launched Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 for the iPhone and iPod touch ($6.99) and iPad ($9.99). The updated game allows you to hit the links on championship courses, including TPC Sawgrass, Pebble Beach, and St. Andrews, all from the comfort of your cubicle. We fired up the game today and loved the multiplayer option, which allows you to challenge friends over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth — you can also find friends ready to hit the links by signing into Facebook. The graphics look like they have been totally overhauled from the original, iPhone Tiger Woods game, but the controls remain just as easy — you pull your finger down to swing back, throw it forward to swing through, and add spin to the ball by swiping like a madman. We’re definitely impressed with the game so far and think it’s a worthy update to the original. All those years of sleep-away golf camp are finally paying off. Hit the jump for the iTunes link.
