Ariana Grande is so into Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...   read

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has some familiar faces
