New 'Shadowrun' Game 'Shadowrun Returns' Gets New Trailer And Release Date

Oh, hey, did you know that Harebrained Schemes is working on a Shadowrun revival? It is! The game's called Shadowrun Returns, and it's a top-down, tactical squad-based strategy game that tasks you with scouring the "urban sprawl of the Seattle metroplex" in search of a mysterious killer. Your squad will consist of a mages and street samurai, as well as other weird classes that combine magic with cyberpunk. Sounds a bit better than that Xbox Shadowrun everyone loves to hate, right? Right?..

Remember that whole "Rovio Account" thing Rovio announced not so long ago? You know, the thing that would give players the ability to sync their progress in Rovio games across a range of phones and tablets? That thing. It's out now for Angry Birds [$0.99 / Free / $2.99 (HD) / Free (HD)] on Android and iOS devices...




YES: D-Pad Studio's 'Savant'

Imagine, if you will, a game that features (a) an elevator death ride, (b) dubstep, and (c) evil flying metal monsters. Wait, stop imagining! That game exists. Or, at least, it will later this month. D-Pad Studio's July 30th-bound Savant is an intense shooter that, apparently, puts you in the boots of a dude on an eternal elevator ride filled with all sorts of flying evil metal things. The goal it seems is pretty simple: shoot everything...

Weird. Beamdog has pulled Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition from the App Store and as a PC download via its site due to a "number of contractual issues," the studio confirmed in a message on the official Baldur's Gate page. Work on the game's Android port and the next patch for the game have also been put on hold. ..

Disney's 'Where's My Mickey?' Hits the App Store This Week

I've always been quite fond of Disney Interactive's mobile games simply for the fact that they're one of the few big production companies that has a dedicated mobile team. They got the ground running by acquiring Jelly Car  [Free] and buying Tapulous, the studio behind the popular Tap Tap Revenge [$2.99] series. As a team, their biggest hit so far is Where's My Water? [$1.99]. This Thursday, they're showing all their cards on the table and giving their biggest character an iOS game of its own in Where's My Mickey?..

Here's A Trailer For 'Final Fantasy Tactics S'

Well, that was fast. Final Fantasy Tactics S, that free-to-play version of FFT we noted was a thing a few weeks ago, is out now in Japan across iOS and Android.

It's called Fightback, and according to the PR, it'll feature a "striking 80's action movie vibe and a revolutionary touch-based combat system." Also, it'll be free-to-play because of course...

Here's A Look At 'Diesel Tactics,' A Steampunk Turn-Based Strategy Game

If you're a Powerman 5000 fan or just dig robots with clockwork parts, Diesel Tactics seems like a game to throw onto your Watch List. At the top-level, it's an asynchronous turn-based strategy game that tasks you with banging diverse groups of unit types into each other until someone wins. Basically it's Hero Academy, except with a steampunk-y twist. The art for this in particular is radical, distorting World War I and World War II imagery through its stylistic lens as it does...

When a new update to Minecraft - Pocket Edition [$6.99] hits, we can't help but wonder how many potential players aren't playing this game. Minecraft is baffling for some folks; it's not the best at expressing what it is and what you can do in it. And even when you do figure out that punching blocks yields resources, you've still got to figure out the whole living through the first night thing. And crafting. There's a lot for the uninitiated to learn...

Gameloft Reveals New Shooter 'Blitz Brigade'

Blitz Brigade is the name of Gameloft's next online third-person shooter, and we've got some footage of the game just below. The video positions it firmly as a Team Fortress 2 knock-off, complete with zany music, a cheerful art style, and strong characterizations for each of the game's classes. The action, on the other hand, is looking a little more traditional as far as competitive shooters go...

Neat: Ubisoft finally got around to alerting people to Far Cry The Outpost [Free], an official Far Cry 3 companion app that's been kinda hiding on the App Store since the freeze.

You also get access to the game's stat-tracking functionality, allowing you to see exactly how much time you've been piddling away in the game's competitive modes...

Morning Star is ambitious, if anything. This morning, Industrial Toys unveiled its first game, Morning Star, to the world. It's a sci-fi shooter set to hit in spring 2013 across iPhone and iPad and, possibly, Android. But it's not just a sci-fi shooter. According to Industrial Toys, it's a "re-imagining of the sci-fi shooter for touch." Also, it's being made specifically for people who play video games regularly...

Here's something pretty interesting. Long-time mobile game developer Gamevil, who have been a major player in Asian markets for the past decade but really cemented their Western expansion selling games on iOS the past several years, has launched their highly anticipated fifth entry in the Zenonia RPG series on Android's Google Play marketplace ahead of the iOS App Store. Zenonia 5: Wheel of Destiny landed at the end of last month and seems to have been quite well-received from the Android gaming community, and quite popular too based on its chart ranking...
