Tons of Marvel Mobile Gaming News Came Out of Comic-Con Over the Weekend

This past weekend was Comic-Con in San Diego, and being one of the heavyweights in the world of comics, Marvel had plenty to announce at the convention that pertains to their mobile gaming offerings. Without further ado, here's a quick rundown of some new content you can expect for Marvel Puzzle Quest, Marvel Pinball, and Marvel War of Heroes, as well as a brand new game announcement in the form of Marvel Contest of Champions and an updated look at the previously announced Spider-Man Unlimited from Gameloft...

Over the weekend at Comic-Con, Telltale Games announced that their ultra popular, critically acclaimed adventure series The Walking Dead will be coming back for a third season at some point in the future. The news was initially announced at a Comic-Con panel hosted by Skybound Entertainment, who publishes Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics from which Telltale's game series is based on, and later confirmed by Telltale's official Twitter account...

Simogo's Latest Story-Based iOS Game, 'The Sailor's Dream', Announced

Simogo released two utter masterpieces in 2013: Year Walk [$3.99] and Device 6 [$3.99], but they've been in quiet in 2014 outside of the Year Walk Steam release. But wait no longer: they have announced their next game, The Sailor's Dream, coming late 2014 to iOS. ..

'Firefly Online' Also Gets a Comic Con Trailer

Hey! Another thing that's relevant to us at Comic Con! If you remember last Comic Con we posted the vague reveal trailer for Firefly Online, which didn't show too much unless you're really in to ships and planets. Well, this year they've upped the ante:..

Here's some good news for "Canadians" and actual Canadians living in Canada: NimbleBit's followup to Tiny Tower [Free], Tiny Tower Vegas, recently soft launched in the Canadian App Store. They've been doing a pretty wide scale beta test of the game, and now everyone can get in on it- Assuming you're savvy enough to have a Canadian iTunes account, anyway...

'Re-Volt 2' Briefly Appears on the App Store as Free to Play Racer

There are few PC racing games I have fonder memories of than the RC car racer Re-Volt. It hit in the late 90's, and I couldn't even begin to guess the amount of time I spent playing multiplayer with friends around that time. Re-Volt Classic [$5.99] is available on the App Store, but it's one of those games that you need to have some thick rose colored nostalgia classes on to fully enjoy. Regardless, this classic IP seems primed for a reboot...

Apple "Frustrated" that "People Don't Want to Pay Anything" on Mobile, Says 'The Banner Saga' Developer

There's a very interesting interview over on Polygon with Stoic Studios, developers of the hit tactical adventure title The Banner Saga which launched on Steam back in January and is on its way to the iPad. In the interview Stoic touches on what it's like developing a game as a fledgling indie studio, and two things in particular really stood out to me...

Is 'Bioshock' Finally Coming to iOS? Well, That's One Way You Could Read These Tea Leaves

Hanging out with our pals from MacRumors and having been involved in the X-Files club in Junior High (No, for real, X-Files just premiered and it was red hot.) might be responsible for grooming me in to reading between any two lines I can possibly find, but try this on for size: 2K's UK account typically tweets about Borderlands, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns Superman punching, and other stuff relevant to their games. That makes sense, it's a Twitter account for a publisher...

The 'Angry Birds Transformers' Comic Con Trailer is Pretty Gnarly

Mobile stuff usually isn't that prevalent at Comic Con, short of a few spillover trailers for games that might also be coming to mobile. Rovio, as usual, is the exception here and just released a pretty awesome Angry Birds Transformers trailer:..

Lucky Frame Bringing Roguelike Puzzler 'The Nightmare Cooperative' to iOS

Lucky Frame, the Edinbugensian studio behind Bad Hotel [$1.99], Wave Trip [$0.99], and Gentlemen! [$4.99 (HD)] (all of which we loved), are brining their newest game to iOS. ..

Epiphany Games Announces 'Majestic Nights,' An Episodic RPG Thriller About Conspiracy Theories

Alongside neon, cocaine, and capitalism, conspiracy theories remain one of the enduring cultural touchstones of America during the 1980s. Some of the best crackpot theories happened in the preceding decades— the Philadelphia Experiment, Roswell and Area 51, MK Ultra, John F. Kennedy's assassination, Watergate—but the Iran-Contra affair and the ensuing crack epidemic happened under Ronald Reagan's wrinkly watch, putting a doughy, plastic face on years of alleged coverups. It's no surprise that X-Files was created in 1993...

Kick In Doors and Blast Through Walls in Tactical Shooter 'LA Cops'

LA Cops is an upcoming tactical shoot-out game that takes place in a stylish, romanticized version of the 1970s. There's no way Kowalski, the game's main character, gets all the way through the game without handing his gun and badge over to the Chief, glaring behind his glossy aviators. You've gone too far this time, Kowalski -- this is coming straight from the Mayor!..

'The Walking Dead: No Man's Land' Mobile Game Announced from AMC and Next Games

There's a new mobile game in the works from AMC and Next Games built around the ultra-popular The Walking Dead franchise. It's called The Walking Dead: No Man's Land, and though the exact gameplay hasn't been revealed yet, Next's CEO Teemu Huuhtanen says of the upcoming game "Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show: survival strategy, finding safety for your people, balancing between right and wrong and, of course, action when it comes to fighting against the hordes of walkers. We respect the creators of The Walking Dead immensely and want this game to portray the world they have created as closely as possible." Here's a brief cinematic trailer...

Space Bears Bring Abstract Strategy to iOS with Upcoming 'Kingdoms'

Perhaps unfortunately, French indie duo Space Bears' first project isn't about a roaming sleuth of star-faring ursids. Instead, the Paris-based combo are making Kingdoms, a two-player strategy game about capturing tiles, fortifying positions, and wresting territory away from your enemies...

Zombies Invade Chess in 'Kings & Corpses', Coming This Thursday

Indie developer Danny Perski has a new project in the works which was revealed in our forums this afternoon. It's called Kings & Corpses, and it's very loosely based on a simplified version of chess where your goal is to protect your king from the zombies on the board. Based on the following video, you'll be doing that by strategically maneuvering your pawns and using them for cannon fodder against the zombies. The levels in Kings & Corpses are randomly generated too, so it's different each time you play. ..
