In a new bit of teaser footage, publisher Gameloft debuts Wild Blood's dark fantasy world and gives you a decent look at its monsters, which you'll presumably need to kill as the broody guy with the monstrous sword that pops up at the end of the video...

Here's Some More 'Horn' For Your Eyeballs

Curses! Demons! Destruction! Horn, Phosphor Games' upcoming iPad and iPhone title, has a new trailer.

If you pay attention, you'll catch that Horn's action mechanics appear to resemble Infinity Blade's, which, you know, is pretty cool. We hear Infinity Blade really clicked with people...

Supplemental versions of the game are coming to mobile and tablets, too. In a recent interview, Bowling said that these versions will use some sort of GPS mechanic that will let you dumpster dive in the real world for items that you can transport into your game of Human Element proper. ..

E3: Madfinger Games Announces 'Dead Trigger,' A Sharp-Looking Zombie FPS

Do you like zombie games? We sure hope so. It's clear that studios aren't going to be giving the undead a break despite how clotted the market is with their moans and groans and brainless wanderings. On the other hand, we're still finding interesting things in the latest crop of zombie games. Dead Trigger, for example, is tickling us because its production values appear to be off the chain. We guess we're not over the whole zombie thing quite yet, either...

E3 always has surprises, but most big publishers announce what they're taking or showing off in advance of the Los Angeles based event. Square Enix just did this, and revealed a new, or at the very least upcoming, 2D Final Fantasy game in the process. Yay!..

He also announced that his new digs will be pumping out titles for console and PC, as well as phones and tablets...

Consisting of staff sliced and diced from the Splash Damage team, WarChest is primed to deliver quality free-to-play games across iPhone, iPad, and other handsets. We spoke with a Splash Damage marketing dude at the studio the other night, and he seemed revved about the opportunity and the change of pace this represents for the studio. It as a whole, however, will continue developing games in the triple A space. In fact, there's a PC-exclusive free-to-play game and a separate free-to-play console game in the works right now...

Hello Games' Joe Danger will be making his debut on mobile in the near future, and it won't be a port of the Xbox Live Arcade or PSN version of the title.

Cafeteria Nipponica is the latest Kairosoft game to grace Android. In it, you'll play as "the chef de cuisine" and assume his or her role of planner, architect, and chef. You'll compose menus, discover and research ingredients, construct a restaurant and then put in various trimmings in an effort to boost its popularity and make customers happy.
