Last week, the massively anticipated Genshin Impact released, and now it seems to be the only game anyone's talking about. There's a good reason for this, or rather several. It looks great, it's free, and it actually follows through as an experience that takes meaningful inspiration from Breath of the Wild.

In case you're looking at Genshin Impact from the outside wondering if it's all it's cracked up to be, you're in the right place. The short answer is yes, but here's some more things that might inform whether you should dive into the game.

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: SEEN THIS BEFORE
We've seen this game before, but now it's got an Arabian Nights motif that doesn't make a ton of sense.

Clone Camera's biggest and most note-worthy feature is the ability to merge multiple photos of the same background together to produce the illusion that an object was cloned.

Dream Heights Launched, Receives Many One Star Reviews

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on February 17th, 2012

Dream Heights, the new freemium game from Zynga that looks an awful lot like Tiny Tower, has officially been launched on the US App Store. And, proving that gamers have long and vengeful memories, the title has promptly been slammed with a whole mess of One Star reviews. Choice morsels include "Blatant copy of Tiny Tower mechanics /w a Zynga art dept. skin. But I have to say, the way Zynga innovated with regards to being stingy with in app currency is nothing short of ground breaking," and "Wow, not a Tiny Tower ripoff. Not at all. Completely different in every way." As of right now the game has received 311 One Star ratings, but that number has been largely overwhelmed by the 1263 Five Star ratings it's also seen.

Zynga has been accused of shady business practices in the past, but this time around the community seems to be taking particular offense. Part of the controversy stems from the fact that Zynga attempted to buy out Tiny Tower developer Nimblebit at one point, but was refused. Thus, many are taking the launch of Dream Heights as a slap in the face to the smaller company. Still, it seems the rage has all but abated, and it appears Zynga may weather the fury of the Internet and come away largely unscathed. The game is currently averaging a Four Star overall review score, and the average iOS social gamer is probably largely unaware of the controversy. We'll wait a bit and see if there's any long-term effects, but for now it seems that Zynga's future (and stock price) remains mostly unaffected.
