Very quick tips: Swing Copters photo
Very quick tips: Swing Copters
by Kyle MacGregor

The spiritual successor to Flappy Bird has arrived, and it's incredibly difficult. It's also awful. Just plain awful. Don't you worry, though. Destructoid is here to help. 

Maybe you liked Flappy Bird. Maybe you are a Flappy Bird master. Maybe you are an actual human being with a soul and better things to do with your time. Anyway, the point is that Flappy Bird is so two months ago. Swing Copters is the new "it" thing.

So, with that in mind, we have put together a little something to help all you intrepid Swing Copters players. Hopefully these tips will help make your life a just tad better.

ChAIR is wrapping up Infinity Blade III with its final update next week photo
ChAIR is wrapping up Infinity Blade III with its final update next week
by Jordan Devore

As part of my slowly-get-out-of-bed routine this morning, I glanced at my inbox and was delighted to see an email pop up on my phone about ChAIR. Could this be it? The announcement of another Shadow Complex? We've been waiting years for a follow-up!

Nah. It was just a press release for some more Infinity Blade stuff.

The studio is preparing its final update for Infinity Blade III, a free download dubbed Kingdom Come. It'll hit the App Store on September 4, 2014. There's going to be a new environment, more items and weapons, a dragon -- the usual. ChAIR has also put out a recap of the series, viewable above, with some of this new content featured here and there.

I liked the original Infinity Blade fine, but I'm eager to see this team move on to another project.

This Humble Bundle is a good way to get Threes! and Eliss Infinity

Humble Bundles are great, depending on how many gaps there are in your videogame library. (Although, admittedly, they're sometimes so cheap even that isn't a setback.) But, ideally, you don't want to wrack up a bunch of dupl...

If Pokémon were a F2P mobile game, it might look something like this

This mock-up of what Pokémon would be like as a free-to-play mobile game has surfaced on reddit and is eerily reminiscent of several of the more widely panned F2P games in recent memory. It makes me sad to think of all...
