Gameloft recaps recent updates in video podcast


Gameloft still doesn’t give Android the same lovin that goes to iOS, but they are still my favorite mobile game developer by far (seriously, I’ve authored about 50 blog posts on them). They produce some of the best looking games that Android has seen (Modern Combat 3) and they also have one of the largest library of titles spanning all genres.

In episode 20 of the Gameloft Podcast, longtime host Josh Goldberg bids farewell to his gig. To celebrate his final episode Gameloft told Josh he could do whatever he wants, which results in one of the more entertaining episodes. I won’t spoil any details, so just check out the show below.

We haven’t seen many new games from Gameloft this year, but they did just launch their free community app Gameloft Live to the Android Market. The app lets you create a 3D avatar of yourself (think Wii’s Miis) and provides access to exclusive news, spotlight promotions, and special discounts on games.

I played around with the app and didn’t see much added value yet, but this is just the first version and I’m sure Gameloft will improve it. Hey, at least it’s a sign that Gameloft is making an effort to grow their Android fan base. Be on the lookout for Dungeon Hunter 3 to hit the Android Market next month.

    It’s a good thing we haven’t seen anything from them this year. All they’ve been releasing on IOS lately has been freemium bullshit (like Dungeon Hunter 3, actually) which is completely stripped of any substance and asks you for money every 5 minutes.

    The lack of devices they support makes them the least popular game developer in my book. Few if any of their high end 3d games are supported on the Asus Transformer line.

      Gameloft supports the devices where they will get the most salse and there are not many Prime units out there yet. Give it time and you will see more games on the Prime.

        Well that may be true but I thought that besides some small tweaks that there wasn’t much difference between one Tegra 2 device and another. Gameloft has on Uno and Tin Tin support for the G Slate. I know I will definitely look in to the games supported before buying my next tab
