Is 'Bioshock' Finally Coming to iOS? Well, That's One Way You Could Read These Tea Leaves

Hanging out with our pals from MacRumors and having been involved in the X-Files club in Junior High (No, for real, X-Files just premiered and it was red hot.) might be responsible for grooming me in to reading between any two lines I can possibly find, but try this on for size: 2K's UK account typically tweets about Borderlands, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns Superman punching, and other stuff relevant to their games. That makes sense, it's a Twitter account for a publisher...

The 'Angry Birds Transformers' Comic Con Trailer is Pretty Gnarly

Mobile stuff usually isn't that prevalent at Comic Con, short of a few spillover trailers for games that might also be coming to mobile. Rovio, as usual, is the exception here and just released a pretty awesome Angry Birds Transformers trailer:..

Yesterday I posted about how I managed to beat the heroic difficulty of Hearthstone's [Free (HD)] Arachnid Quarter in the new Curse of Naxxramas expansion. All three decks were loaded with epic and legendary cards, and I suspected that it was entirely possible to beat them with way cheaper decks...

Alright, so this isn't a game, but I imagine if you made a Venn diagram representing gamers and people interested enough in Marvel comics to flop out a dollar to unlimited access to Marvel's online catalog, you'd pretty much have a circle. Thanks to a promotion taking place for San Diego Comic Con, those two worlds can now collide...

'Thomas Was Alone' Drops to $3.99 and Goes Universal

Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone [$3.99] is one of those things I wish I could delete from my brain. Not because it was bad, but because it was so good and the original experience was so powerful I want to experience it fresh all over again. It's an insanely clever game, as on the surface it's an incredibly basic puzzle platformer. You play as one of many characters, represented as basic polygons, and need to get them all to the end of the level utilizing each of their unique abilities. Think Blizzard's The Lost Vikings stripped down to its most minimal core...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Single Player Review - Blurring the Lines Between Single and Multiplayer

After months of news, teaser trailers, and hands-on previews, Gameloft’s latest entry in its first-person shooter series is finally here. As was the case with MC4, there’s a lot to look it with this latest sequel, so this first part of the review focuses primarily on the single player campaign and underlying gameplay mechanics. In that regard, Modern Combat 5: Blackout [$6.99] is an excellent sequel that makes some dramatic improvements to said mechanics while keeping the actual FPS action mostly unchanged...

Out Now: 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout', 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles', 'Traps n' Gemstones', 'Revolution 60', 'The Great Prank War' and More

It's another Wednesday night filled with new iOS game releases, but for many people out there today is simply "Modern Combat 5 release day." And that's cool, I totally get it, we've been waiting a long, long time for Gameloft's latest FPS. Luckily, it looks like it was worth the wait. Check out our review of the single-player portion of the game, and look for a review of the multiplayer portion soon. Besides that major release, there's also a surprise arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the official mobile game of the upcoming movie. It's a beat 'em up made by the guys who made Combo Crew, so I've got high hopes for it...

Lucky Frame Bringing Roguelike Puzzler 'The Nightmare Cooperative' to iOS

Lucky Frame, the Edinbugensian studio behind Bad Hotel [$1.99], Wave Trip [$0.99], and Gentlemen! [$4.99 (HD)] (all of which we loved), are brining their newest game to iOS. ..

Epiphany Games Announces 'Majestic Nights,' An Episodic RPG Thriller About Conspiracy Theories

Alongside neon, cocaine, and capitalism, conspiracy theories remain one of the enduring cultural touchstones of America during the 1980s. Some of the best crackpot theories happened in the preceding decades— the Philadelphia Experiment, Roswell and Area 51, MK Ultra, John F. Kennedy's assassination, Watergate—but the Iran-Contra affair and the ensuing crack epidemic happened under Ronald Reagan's wrinkly watch, putting a doughy, plastic face on years of alleged coverups. It's no surprise that X-Files was created in 1993...

Yesterday the Hearthstone [Free (HD)] expansion Curse of Naxxramas was released. The non-heroic difficulty levels of the three bosses and class challenges are pretty easy, but heroic is an entirely different ball game. If you're stuck on the normal challenges, check out our guide from yesterday. If you're stuck on the heroic bosses, read on, just keep in mind there are potential spoilers ahead as these single player adventures are essentially deck building puzzles...

Pixbits' Junk Jack X [$4.99] is one of those iOS gifts that keeps on giving, and today its newest update has arrived adding all sorts of summer-themed items, an entire new planet, and even the ability to go fishing. The summer items are summer-y things like popsicles and water balloons, as well as some jazzy new outfits like you can see in the screen below. The new planet is Mayan-themed and named Yuca, and it contains 15 new mob types, lots of new blocks and items, and some special Yuca equipment and weapons. ..

In my review of the game based on Thor: The Dark World [Free], I remarked about how, as a child, I never would have expected Thor of all characters to become a major media star for Marvel. There are always bigger miracles, however. I remember flipping through the pages of a Marvel Handbook when I was in elementary school and coming across Rocket Raccoon. It was my first time seeing him, and to my eyes, he looked stupid. Not just The Shocker-stupid, but genuine, unadulterated Razorback-level stupid. He was the kind of character who you would only see in a Marvel Handbook, with a handful of appearances to his name, doomed to disappear entirely for 15 years of publications. Several years ago, he and many other somewhat forgotten members of Cosmic Marvel returned as a new Guardians of the Galaxy team, in an effort to revamp that part of the Marvel Universe. It was so successful, they've got a live action movie coming out next week, and with it, their very own game. Now, that's improbable...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout', 'Revolution 60' and Loads More

The day is finally upon us, after loads of anticipation and drama of nearly all forms, Gameloft's Modern Combat 5 is finally almost here. Also, if you're not in to modern military shooters, there's a ton of other awesome games coming out tonight too. Here's the launch trailer for MC5 if you haven't seen it yet:..

Kick In Doors and Blast Through Walls in Tactical Shooter 'LA Cops'

LA Cops is an upcoming tactical shoot-out game that takes place in a stylish, romanticized version of the 1970s. There's no way Kowalski, the game's main character, gets all the way through the game without handing his gun and badge over to the Chief, glaring behind his glossy aviators. You've gone too far this time, Kowalski -- this is coming straight from the Mayor!..

Zombie Road Trip Trials [Free], develped by Spokko and published by the fine folks at Noodlecake Games, has a new content update that is just about to go live, containing a crossover with another Noodlecake game, and an indestructable shark car...
