Gizmo and accessory manufacturer Scosche has some crazy stuff on the horizon with their Bluetooth "smartROLL" dice. They work via low power Bluetooth, and, well, serve as real-world dice that can be also used in game. It sounds crazy, and it kind of is, but check out the demo in action from the E3 show floor:..

E3 2013: Hands-On with 'Asphalt 8: Airborne' and Its Insane Brand of Racing

It's hard to believe that Gameloft is already up to the eighth entry in the Asphalt racing series, but here we are. Of course not all of those are on the iOS platform, as this series has been around since the pre-smartphone era, but Asphalt 4: Elite Racing did make a huge splash on iOS when the App Store launched way back in 2008...

Dead Rising 3's SmartGlass support is way too neat to not mention. According to Joystiq, the "second screen experience" for the Xbox One exclusive will grant players access to bonus missions, as well as special abilities including, but not limited to, air strikes and drone support. More interestingly, the SmartGlass app will also help folks "locate specific types of items and abandoned storefronts," Joystiq says. Meaning, you could have a couch co-op partner help you find stuff, as well as set waypoints on your map. That's pretty neat, as it opens up a new way to play via tablets and phones. The potential of SmartGlass is seriously awesome...

E3 2013: In Square Enix's 'Bloodmasque,' You Are The Vampire Hunter Guy

Sunlight! Crosses! Garlic! These are all things vampires Do Not Want. I've learned this from reading the finest of literature, my friends. Oh, and another thing vampires don't like? Your face. That's not a slam. It's another Vampire Fact that I just picked up from watching footage of Square Enix's new vampire-themed action RPG, Bloodmasque. I think it's an incredible game, and not just from an academic perspective...

Brothers in Arms isn't dead! Earlier today, Gameloft announced Brothers in Arms 3, a new follow-up to the studio's long-running WWII-themed franchise. Details are few at the moment, but we do know this: it's an on-rails, cover-based shooter that tasks users with swiping between pieces of cover. You know, sorta like Epoch [$2.99], except without robots. And lasers. Probably...

As expected, the PlayStation 4, or more specifically features on PS4's PlayStation Network, will be accessible on phones.

The return of Commander Mode to Battlefield 4 was a pretty cool reveal the other day at EA's E3 2013 press briefing. The part of the feature that's getting us revved up is the fact that players will be able to offload their duties as Commander to a mobile device. Just as if you were in-game, Commanders with a tablet or phone can gather intel, order air strikes, and coordinate positions. ..

Welp! It looks like that Walking Dead: The Game tease we posted about a few weeks ago is actually a PlayStation Vita game (for now). During Sony's E3 2013 tonight, Sony announced Walking Dead: The Game is coming to its handheld platform. In addition, a new episode called "400 Days" is coming, too, filling the hole between season one and two nicely no doubt...

Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference closed with a look at Tom Clancy's The Division, an MMO shooter RPG that's being created by the capable hands at Massive Entertainment.
