When Hearthstone made its way to the iPad, I may or may not have played it for two weeks straight. My wife and I would sit down by the fire (or hearth, if you will) with our iPad and laptop in-hand and play for hours whi...

I wish everyday started with over 20 minutes of gorgeous mech combat. Project HON's impressively long trailer includes everything you could ask for from a game inspired by mecha anime: senseless destruction, giant guns, metal fisticuffs, weaponized grappling hooks, and transforming robots. Best breakfast viewing ever.
Every once and awhile I see something that I desperately want but know I shouldn't get because it would ruin my life. Motorcycles, home-installed espresso machines, that sort of thing. Now I can add XCOM: Enemy Within on mobi...

The Banner Saga is coming to iOS, but porting isn't the developer's major concern. That's pretty much already done. Stoic's main dilemma is how much the game should cost on the platform. "Apple is frustrated, along with every...
Deadman's Cross fans can now explore Resident Evil's Raccoon City as a limited-time area from now until July 27. It's set to open up when you complete an in-game collaboration quest, and from there you can collect special car...

I've played Candy Crush Saga and my share of match-three games as a mobile game fanatic, but to date I've not spent a dime on any of the free-to-play giants. I can understand wanting to spend a dollar or two here and there fo...
In a somewhat surprising move, CD Projekt Red announced yesterday that they would be releasing a free-to-play MOBA for mobile devices featuring characters from The Witcher series. This is slated for release sometime this winter and hey, who knows, it might be really awesome.
Did you ever get a chance to play The World Ends With You? If not, you should have. There's still time before you start reading this post. Did you start it yet? No? Yeah, I guess it is a bit hard to find a retail copy unless ...
Alright, so it's no Ultra Street Fighter IV, but Capcom is working on an upcoming mobile Street Fighter title in tandem with Nexon. Sounds a bit strange, I suppose, but since it's a mobile game it makes sense. Street Fighter ...

Just Dance 2015 and Just Dance Now are things that are happening, Ubisoft announced today. The former looks to be the next iteration of the series you've become accustomed to seeing on consoles over the past few years. Just Dance Now, however, will make use of your phone. Now you can bump and grind on the go. You can dance everywhere, guys. Because you totally couldn't do that before.

I was and still am in love with the entire day of April 23, 2014. That was the day that lots of my peers ran a fake SoulCalibur: Unbreakable Soul Trailer as a real, legit Namco Bandai release. When I saw it I ran to make a c...
