Another new batch of games has appeared in Ovi Store, the full list is below. (Incidentally, if anyone from Nokia is reading this, could you please take a look at the Ovi Store servers and find out why some games are constantly appearing and disappearing!) Anyway, on with the new games, you can see them listed below in alphabetical order. Most of the new games seem to be from the publisher Playfon, who are apparently making their Ovi Store debut.
Dance Fabulous launch date confirmed, trailer and official website unveiled, book month's free rental now
The official N-Gage blog has confirmed that the N-Gage-exclusive first party music game Dance Fabulous will be released on the 11th of June, and has unveiled both the official trailer and the official Dance Fabulous website. Interestingly the website promotes the upcoming 5730 XpressMusic, which is an unusual music-oriented version of the very popular E75 QWERTY smartphone. You can see the official trailer embedded below, along with some earlier videos about the game. On top of all that, you can now reserve a free 30 day rental of Dance Fabulous by going to this mobile website on your N-Gage-compatible phone: nokia.mobi/dancefabulous
Some of you may have noticed a new name and logo on this site and wondered where All About N-Gage has gone. Don't worry, we're still here, we're the same people doing the site, but we've adopted a new name! Ovi Gaming is going to cover all the usual N-Gage reviews, news and previews it always has done, but from now on it will also cover Ovi Store games from Nokia's soon-to-launch content shop service. Both N-Gage and Ovi Store are a part of Nokia's online services brand Ovi, so we felt a good name to cover games from both would be "Ovi Gaming". If you have any questions or feedback please leave them in the comments thread below.

In a GDC-inspired AAS podcast special, Ewan sits down with Jakko Kaidesoja (Nokia's VP of Games, Services and Software) to discuss the current status of the N-Gage ecosystem. It's a wide-ranging discussion and there's a LOT of meat in here, despite it only clocking in at 16 minutes - a must-listen for anyone remotely interested in N-Gage.
More news from the GDC in San Francisco via AAN's on-the-spot reporter Ewan Spence: apparently Nokia's Mark Ollila announced that they're bringing Reset Generation as a free web-based game to Linux and Macintosh computers. The current free web-based version only works with Windows PCs, but hopefully soon we'll all be able to drop our blocks...
