Portable Agenda :: February 13th
Find out what's on Modojo's mind, as well as its calendar...
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Portable Agenda. Some regular Modojo readers have probably noticed a few changes around the site, one of which is the launch of this column. Portable Agenda will lead off every week and give you a sneak peak at what features we have planned, as well our take on the important issues currently facing the handheld & mobile industry.
Modojo has been around for over a year now (crazy!), but we're only now ready to get our baby to a state of completion and give it a hard push. We think we've slowly and steadily been putting together a great destination, but it's your opinion that really counts, so let me know your thoughts on how we're doing. "Let me know" is a link, by the way. Colored linking text is one such detail that will soon be fixed.
From here on out portable gaming enthusiasts can look forward to much weightier editorial output, as well as regular exclusive reviews, previews, and interviews. We're passionate about mobile gaming, and we know that there are others like us out there. Our goal is to provide this underrepresented group of gamers the coverage they deserve, and just aren't getting from other websites.
This week on Modojo we're continuing to catch up on our mobile backlog, with over 10 reviews slated, including ports of such classics as Castlevania and Bubble Bobble, as well as original titles including Brave Shot and Midnight Bowling. Sega's Rub Rabbits and Capcom's Resident Evil DS will also come under the Modojo microscope.
This week's exclusive interview is GameLoft's Director of North American Operations Eric Albert. If you missed it, be sure to check out last week's interview with Glu Mobile's North American GM Jill Braff here.
2006 is going to be a year mobile gamers will remember for a long time. Last year's launch of the DS and PSP created a war in the handheld space for the first time in nearly 15 years. Cell phone gaming in North America is finally maturing to levels comparable to that of Europe or Japan. Never before has there been more ways to wage war on idle downtime, and Modojo will be there to advise you how to do it best.
