Valiant Hearts coming to iOS devices on September 4

Valiant Hearts: The Great War was a wonderful experience that came out not too long ago on consoles and PC. And now it's set to arrive on iOS devices on September 4. Same game, just controls redesigned with touch screen in mind. No price point was given, but now you will have no excuse to miss this one.

Uh, why is that Looney Tunes hole stealing buildings in Donut County

I don't entirely understand Donut County, but I want it. You are the hole that goes from stealing donuts to stealing mountains. It reminds me a bit of Tales from Space: Mutant Blob Attacks, which was good. You, the hole, get bigger every time you swallow something. I am down with this game. It's coming to "home computers & touch devices."

Dargon Quest IV on iOS: A typo, not a trick

No, this is not someone trying to make a quick buck with some off brand Nontendo 3DS. This is Square Enix putting Dragon Quest IV up on the (fertile testing ground that is New Zealand) Apple Store and misspelling it...

That BioShock teaser was an iOS port and it plays well (sort of) photo
That BioShock teaser was an iOS port and it plays well (sort of)
by Steven Hansen

That BioShock teaser from 2K? It's not a new BioShock game. It's the first one, but on Apple devices. Hence the apple in the tease. Clever. Who called it?

This is basically a full port of the PC version of BioShock, sans dynamic shadows and some fog. BioShock is a good game. Arguably a lot better than Infinite. It has cost less than whatever a "premium" mobile game will cost when the iOS port launches later this summer. That's a cue for, "it won't be $0.99, please don't be upset." 

Still, there's some novelty to playing the thing on your phone or iPad (I played on an iPad Air). And thanks to the same team that delivered a heck of an iOS port of XCOM, BioShock looks and runs well on the smaller screen.

Rhythm puzzler Beatbuddy is coming to the iPad
