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...

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...

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is now available in the New Zealand App Store, and it should be available later tonight in the US as the title continues worming its way around the globe. As you probably expected, this is a port of Vice City. Minus a few touch enhancements, this is the same game you played back in 2002 -- the same 80's-themed, open-world shooter you fell in love with as you cruised a color-infused Miami and jammed to Flock of Seagulls in a stolen car...

'Modern Combat 4' Will Support iPhone 5, Also It'll Be a Paid App

So, we've been thinking about Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour since its "leak" and subsequent actual reveal. And we've go some new details. Most notably, it will support iPhone 5 and its taller screen at launch. Presumably, the extra real estate will make a difference in a control sense, as the added width will give the virtual buttons more breathing room...

So, that Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour "leak" was the real deal. The footage was from the official trailer for the game, which should see a release across Android, iPhone, and iPad later this fall.
