You guys know how this works by now, but it's Wednesday again and I guess there's no harm in explaining it one more time- Due to the majiks of iTunes regions, games hit the New Zealand App Store first at right around 7:00 AM Eastern. Around this time, folks start posting threads in our forums and first impressions start dribbling in from people in New Zealand, Australia, and various Asian markets that are all lucky enough to get iOS games first. Us Americans are stuck waiting until 11:00 PM Eastern for these games to appear on our App Store.

Here's what's on our forums' radar right now:

Stick around for more coverage on these games throughout the day.

    Sonic 2 remastered any time soon?

    • nini

      Patience, young padawan.

  • Weewoo312

    Sweet, Skate is finally coming in a full fledged game!

    I remember months ago when I would go free roam hours on end completing challenges. Can't wait for actual missions and new skate parks!

    • Weewoo312

      Whoops, nevermind. Was thinking about True Skate. Still though, Skate 2 looks like a fully fleshed out game unlike True Skate!

      • postmodernpilot

        True Skate has 4 new maps coming soon. So yay for everyone!

      • C. Stubb

        Really? I just wish they'd finish up and release Jet Car Stunts 2 already. It was supposed to be a 2012 release, but they put it off until "third quarter of 2013" to focus on True Skate...

    Space chicks and super hammer for me
    Still hoping for the wolf a,one us tonight, and the Plague Inc update.

    Nothing really pops out at me. Space chicks looks alright. Maybe I'll just buy a controller!!! Now of they could manage to make games stream seamlessly through Apple TV I wouldn't have to worry about constant lag and could play my games on my tv without a problem.

  • ste86uk

    Already picked up Hatch and I'll definitely try Flick Kick.

  • cloudpuff

    Space chicks and give me my ball back for me, also one called numerity that's released tomorrow (it's like a hidden object game with numbers)

  • kenken11

    I need demon tribe badly

  • Peter Bohanna

    check out Boom Boat 2!

  • Alex

    What happened to the Clumsy Ninja release from last week? It was never available in the US store and then it just fell off the radar.

    • ste86uk

      I'd never seen it either, someone said it had been out ages in another country anyway.

  • otakuzod

    Lords of Waterdeep for me. I've been pretty stoked about that since it was announced. It seems I'll have to at least triple my iOS budget for the end of the year rush. Final Fantasy VI hits before the end of the year too, I think.

    • ImJPaul

      They said winter. Judging by the freeze around the holidays it doesn't look likely. I'd look for it around January. I believe the FF4 spinoff comes out before the end of the year though!

  • Boris Nguetie

    sorry guys this is a bit off topic but i dont know where to ask this question. how comes the ipad air is that close in terms of benchmark to the iphone 5s while having just 0.1ghz more but running alost 4X the iphone resolution??

  • C. Stubb

    I love how on of the featured points in the TG trailer is "camera angle of Touchgrind BMX"

  • echo_pdx

    Lords of Waterdeep and Drive on Moscow for me! Really been looking forward to LoW in particular. :)

    • Emos

      Yep those are the two games I'm looking at, DoM is the must buy for me!

  • Lazer Kat

    Where's zombie Volcano

  • Opinion

    Excited for steam punks
