Freebie Alert: Kemco Monster Taming RPG 'Band of Monsters'

If you see Shaun endlessly reviewing Kemco games, and found yourself curious what all the fuss was about but not curious enough to drop the upwards of ten bucks their games usually cost, here's your chance. Band of Monsters [Free] just went free, down from its normal price of $7.99...

Avenged Sevenfold's Upcoming 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' Shows Loads of Potential

The music industry is in a real weird place right now, and, arguably, has been since the advent of Napster. These days, MTV is nearly irrelevant, music videos are shot with comparatively microscopic budgets with hopes for viral success on YouTube, and terrestrial radio has taken a back seat to the many great options for streaming music via the internet. Bands are forced to get creative, both when it comes to initially getting discovered as well as maintaining and fostering that popularity. Mobile gaming obviously is undeniably huge, which has bands like Avenged Sevenfold asking, "Why not make a video game instead of a music video?"..

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing. Instead, it's more just us picking out the single game out of the week's releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one...

Hearthstone [Free (HD)] is getting its first expansion next Tuesday. Pricing details were already announced, and you can buy it in one of two ways: Drop a total of 2,800 in game gold, or spend $24.99. Like World of Warcraft's Naxxramas raid instance, the expansion is split in to "wings," which each wing sold individually. The cool part of all of this is that the price to unlock things decreases as you spend gold to unlock things, so you can basically just dump the gold you've been saving and then pick up the rest for a discounted amount of real-world cash...

Out Now: 'Bio Inc.', 'Castle Doombad: Free to Slay', 'daWindci Deluxe', 'Mad Bullets', 'Zombie Commando' and More

Here we are with another busy week of new iOS game releases. As with most weeks, even if it doesn't seem like there's any major heavy-hitters on first glance, there definitely looks to be some cool titles this week. There were a few soft-launches in our list from earlier today, and we'll be keeping an eye on if any of those hit the US tonight or not. If there's anything else that you see was released that isn't in this list, feel free to shout them out in the comments below!..

Another Wednesday, another huge batch of games for us to dive in to later this evening when they all hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM Eastern. It seems like everyone and their brother is just waiting for Modern Combat 5 to hit next week, but, there's some good stuff (and another Gameloft game) in this list...

'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Multiplayer Hands-On Preview and Video

The release of Gameloft's highly-anticipated first-person shooter Modern Combat 5: Blackout is nearly upon us (it's coming out July 24th in case you haven't heard), and so far we've seen a great deal of the single-player portion in our hands-on video from May, but we have yet to really get a sense of the multiplayer portion, which is arguably the meat and potatoes of the game. This past week, Gameloft held an event at their San Francisco office that gave game media types like myself a chance to get a taste of the multiplayer in Modern Combat 5. In short: it was a total blast...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Magic 2015' for iPad

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to.

Out Now: 'Hellraid: The Escape', 'Transworld Endless Skater', 'Beyond Gravity', the 'Blackwell' Trilogy', 'Sky Tourist Blitz Trip' and More

It's new iOS release day, and it's another busy one around TouchArcade Towers this week after the fairly hectic last couple of weeks. There's a lot of strong new titles this time around, including the early-releaser Magic 2015 which hit earlier today. Also there are some prominent updates hitting tonight, like the fifth and final episode of The Wolf Among Us which is available right now and a big update coming to Minecraft Pocket Edition which hasn't appeared for me just yet but we'll keep an eye out for it. ..

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Beyond Gravity', The 'Blackwell' Series, 'Hellraid: The Escape', and Much More

Today is a bit of an odd day, as there's oodles of games being released on the App Store that have come in what amounts to three stages. The first of which are indie games which are out now from developers who aren't doing the whole Thursday launch thing that recently had threads posted in our forums. (Hint: Developers should post threads for their games if they want people to know about them!) The second group are games that are going to be available at 11:00 PM Eastern like usual, and the third is one (so far) lonely soft launched game...

'Hearthstone' Expansion Curse of Naxxramas Pricing Details Revealed, $24.99 for All Content

Since the expansion was originally hinted at, Hearthstone [Free (HD)] players everywhere have been speculating how much the expansion was going to cost. Well, Blizzard just gave us our answer. First off, players who participate in the launch event which will last around a month following the release of the expansion will gain access to the first wing, the Arachnid Quarter. After that, the rest of the wings can be purchased for 700 in-game gold each, or $6.99 in real money...

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Monster Hunter Freedom Unite'

Out Now: 'Monster Hunter Freedom Unite', 'Buzz Killem', 'Zombie Puzzle Panic', 'Cally's Caves 2' and More

Ok, last week's insane number of new releases was overwhelming, so it's actually nice to see this week's list of new games down to a more manageable size. The headliner tonight is definitely the worldwide release of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and we'll have a review up for it in just a bit. Also, there were a couple of high profile early releases like Civilization Revolution 2 which launched last night and has been quite well-received so far. Then there's David O'Reilly's strange but interesting mountain simulator MTN which showed up the night before last. Still, they've been included in the list below just in case you missed 'em...

New iPhone Games Coming Tonight: 'Buzz Killem', 'Deep Loot', 'Soccer Showdown 2015', 'Zombie Puzzle Panic' and More

I feel like we might've gotten a little spoiled with last week's insane bonanza of game releases, because this week, on any other week, would look pretty decent… But after last week's over 50 games that appeared, it does look like a bit of a weak week. But, hey, quality over quantity and all that. It looks like there's some good games in here...
