Did you know that their was a Simpsons game in development for mobile devices? Yeah, we forgot as well. Turns out, that The Simpsons: Tapped Out, had to be pulled, because of server issues related to its popularity, but now they’re back, and will be available worldwide this week.

Players will be able to build their own virtual Springfield, including all the iconic buildings available, populated by notorious characters. We’re guessing that Gavin is going to be spending a lot of time at Moe’s Tavern.

Time to pimp some Origin. EA is trying their best to make it a decent alternative to the almighty Steam, by expanding it to Mac, Android and Facebook, and include new social features such as achievements and social challenges.

But right now, it’s time for SimCity to shine! EA wants players to have a deep single-player experiene with this game, but in a manner that impacts on the online world,as SimCity will result in the creations of players going on to power a global economy, meaning each and every single action taken will have ramifications on this online cash-flow. Interesting stuff, and the game is out next year March, on PC AND mac.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
