If you have a Nokia N95 you might like to watch Ovi Gaming's video of how to install Ovi Store (this should work on most other Nokia phones too). It's very simple to do the installation, but if you're at all unsure about the process this video may make things clearer. As an alternative to the application, the video also shows how to access Ovi Store through the phone's web browser.
As most Ovi Store users are still new to the service, Ovi Gaming has done a brief video showing off all the basic features of the current Ovi Store app (version 1.05) including browsing categories, sorting by popularity, filtering by price etc.
In an OviGaming.com editorial, Ewan discusses the dual existence of the (virtually identical) standalone and N-Gage versions of Sims 3 - will this be a problem, will this duality give Nokia and EA much useful information and does it highlight any flaws in the current muddled system?
Perhaps because of its "soft" launch, discussions of Ovi Store have brought up an amazing number of misconceptions about how it works, which devices are compatible, and what kind of content is on offer. Instead of simply repeating ourselves, we've tried to set the record straight in our Unofficial Ovi Store FAQ, which can also be reached from the "FAQ" links elsewhere on this site. If you have any questions you want answered about Ovi Store please read the FAQ first, and if there's still something you want answered post a message in this news item's comments thread.
Just in case you've missed it, Ovi Gaming is now also available as a mobile website at ovigaming.mobi. It contains the same content as ovigaming.com but in a reformatted style which should work on the majority of mobile web browsers and screen resolutions. It should also load a lot more quickly and use much less data, which may be useful for those on a slow connection or with expensive data charges. Have a look and let us know what you think...
The unofficial Scrabble clone Lexulous (aka Scrabulous) became famous as an online game on Facebook, and a downloadable client is now available through Ovi Store which supports both online multiplayer through Facebook and offline against the computer. Ovi Gaming has taken a look, and presents its usual review, video and screenshots. Is this a double word score or have they come up with nothing but consonants?
British cinema's greatest heroes have finally made it to Ovi Store, and Ovi Gaming has done a review, video and screenshots of Wallace & Gromit Adventures. Is this cracking cheese or a bit of a let-down? Click on the link to find out...
Sonic Unleashed, the latest incarnation of Sonic The Hedgehog, is a disappointment partly due to lag on the game engine but largely due to a flawed central concept. Ovi Gaming has done a review, video and screenshots so click on the link if you want to you can find out what went wrong.
Ovi Gaming has done a review, video and screenshots of Progressive Media's rather strange racing game Sheep Mania: Barnyard Dash, where you have to drive sheep through various leagues, winning money to upgrade their abilities at the farm. It's a simple game but it's been done well and we recommend all sheep fans buy it.
Almost everyone is or has been in a relationship, so what on earth can mobile games tell us about love and romance? Ovi Gaming takes a look at Gameloft's Date Or Ditch, a dialogue-centric dating game based around the same engine as Paris Nights. As usual we've included an extensive gameplay video so you can get a feel for what the game is like.
