Transformers: Forged to Fight is 30 years in the making

When I first saw the trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Forged to Fight I thought it looked kind of bad-ass. When I got the end and saw that it was for mobile, I still thought it looked kind of bad-ass, but would rather have a stra...   read

Rip and tear (pin)balls in Bethesda Pinball next month

Zen Studios had runaway success with its Zen Pinball series. While the first game wasn't too widespread, Zen Pinball 2 has been ported to more devices than I can count. It even has a Wii U port, which is basically just for show with most de...   read

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia delayed

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia kind of came out of left field, and is yet another of Square Enix's many spinoffs for their existing properties (this is a spinoff of a fighting game spinoff franchise!). If you aren't aware of it yet it'...   read

Mobius Final Fantasy is coming to Steam, maybe some of you will actually play it

Playing a fully fledged Final Fantasy game on a mobile device probably doesn't sound like fun to a lot of people out there. I know for a fact it didn't around these parts, as many sounded off around the launch of Mobius Final Fantasy t...   read

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is getting a smartphone game

Madoka is one of the best shows I've watched in the last five years or so. What starts off as a standard slice of life/magical girl narrative becomes so much more, and I won't spoil it beyond that. It's also the kind of series that would tr...   read
