OUYA console and controller

With the release of the OUYA console expected sometime in June 2013, the list of games so far is quite impressive. Four hundred sixty-six titles so far have been listed, and it looks as though the number will continue to grow. The entire list of games can be viewed here. It includes some rather intriguing titles—2 Hando Commando, A Tofu Tail, Balls in Your Face, Fist of Awesome, MurderDollz: Home For Demented Toys, and The Pedobear Returns, just to name a few.

The OUYA will be an Android-based game console that will plug into a television, be powerful enough to play games in HD, and include a controller with a touchpad. In addition to games, the OUYA will also support other Android apps. The OUYA team also boasts the system will be open for any developer to publish a game. More information can be found in OUYA’s fact sheet here.

About Daymon Trapold

Daymon joined oprainfall because he has a deep, nerdy love for niche games—basically anything Atlus-/XSEED-/Aksys-/NIS-related. An obscene collector of such games (some may call it obsessive), he is also a part-time bassoonist and a full-time dork.

    That’s a lot of shit.

  • madmofo145

    That is a big list with very few games I’d want to play. I really hope the OUYA team figures out a way to spotlight any games that are actually worth playing on their storefront. As a potential home for indie games, it needs a good discovery mechanism or else it ends up like every other mobile store.

    If it plays everything on the android/iOS market, fine there’s some good games there. However if it’s not 100% compatible and only the shovelware make it on Ouya… I think we can forget about it really fast.

  • Like it or not, there’s nothing there to draw the mainstream consumer or the dude bros. I ctrl + F’ed some of the biggest third parties I could think of and you know what I found?

    Final Fantasy III – Square Enix
    That’s the only one.

    Ouya has raised its death flag.

    • Carrie Brown

      … /facepalm

      That doesn’t mean anything. It is a new kind of platform. The kings of the consoles are not the big players in the mobile gaming market or the Facebook game market. They probably will not be in the Ouya market either. Ouya did not “raise their death flag” as they KNEW that it would not necessarily attract big developers. They built a console that is priced competitively and meant to foster the growth of a game app store for games meant to be played on HD TVs. It’s not a weird or unproven concept…people want apps on their TV. See Roku, and SmartTVs.

    • Missed my point. Sans third party support this is just another android based thing that plays games. People are making noise about this one, but there have been quite a lot in the past already before kickstarter was a thing.

    • StriderWhite

      Yeah, another open console! But what shall we play on it? There isn’t a single good game on that list (except a couple of them, of course!)…

  • Balls in Your Face? MurderDollz: Home of the Demented Toys? The Pedobear Returns? Is anyone else greatly disturbed by what was mentioned in the article alone?

  • Quantity does not necessarily mean quality. If this is Android based where the hell is Final Fantasy Dimensions?

  • as I understand, correct me if I’m wrong, you can run old console emulators on it. I’ll buy it for that for 99$ considering it would save me money over all the $ I would spend on psclassics and virtual console stuff. And with nearly 500 games coming to it there’s gotta be a few diamonds in the rough.

    • bob

      Yes, buy it for something illegal, great idea there.

    • Randomguy

      Its not illegal if you own the real game

  • Carrie Brown

    Plenty of great games are coming to the Ouya – Kitaru, Doublefine Adventure, Shadowrun Online, Pier Solar HD, Steam Bandits: Outpost, The Banner Saga: Factions, Gunblitz, Starbound, Fist of Awesome, Dusty’s Revenge, Rival Threads… and there are likely to be many more. There are going to be a ton of mediocre games because it is an open platform… iOS and Android platforms have the same problem but with word-of-mouth and storefront curation it should not be a problem.

    • StriderWhite

      Yawn…
