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. ..

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?"..

Classic NeoGeo Fighter 'The King of Fighters '98' Heading to Mobile Soon

In November of last year, SNK Playmore and Dotemu teamed up to bring the classic arcade fighting game The King of Fighters '97 [$3.99] to the App Store, and according to a page on SNK's website, it looks like the sequel The King of Fighters '98 is also on its way to mobile. The King of Fighters series began in 1994 when SNK combined characters from their Art of Fighting and Fatal Fury games, as well as some new original characters and those from previous SNK games, into one ultimate fighting game. The series continued with yearly releases, with The King of Fighters '98 being the fifth entry, up until 2003. From that point on the series had a more staggered release schedule, with the most recent release being 2010's The King of Fighters XIII...

New 'Modern Combat 5: Blackout' Trailer Released Ahead of Launch Next Week

The time is finally drawing near when we'll get to download and play and enjoy Gameloft's latest mobile first person shooter Modern Combat 5: Blackout. We've already gone hands-on with the single-player portion of the game, and more recently dove into some multiplayer action at Gameloft's SF office, and basically I along with everyone else are anxious as all get out to finally have the finished product in our hands. Ahead of its release next Thursday, Gameloft has set live a brand new launch trailer for Modern Combat 5: Blackout, and I'll go ahead and let it speak for itself because it looks really incredible. Check it out...

Late last month, an inadvertent screenshot from Ubisoft's Uplay service outed a new mobile game called Assassin's Creed Memories, and based on the brief description in that screenshot it promised a game that blended "card battle, RPG, and strategy gameplay." It sounded quite similar to the now defunct Assassin's Creed Recollection, which was actually a pretty darn good game. Well, this week Assassin's Creed Memories soft-launched in Australia, and based on the comments in our forums, it's not going over so well...

Square Enix and DeNA have unveiled a new mobile Final Fantasy game for Japan called Final Fantasy Record Keeper, Siliconera reports. The game sees you playing as Deci, an apprentice under Dr. Mog in the history department. The "history" in question is previous Final Fantasy games, which are preserved in the form of different paintings on the wall. Dr. Mog uses magic to enable you to enter those paintings, reliving some of the most famous battles from previous Final Fantasy games and even unlocking characters from those games which you can then add to your own party to take into later battles...

'ANNO: Build an Empire' for iPad Soft-Launches in Canada

Back in May, Ubisoft announced that the popular city-building strategy series ANNO was coming to the iPad in an original, built-for-touchscreen experience called ANNO: Build an Empire. Today, that game has soft-launched in the Canadian App Store. As with the other games in the ANNO series, you'll start off by colonizing an unihabited island, collecting resources and enticing people to live there. You'll need to balance all the city building and resource management to keep your inhabitants happy, and eventually, you'll be able to branch out and trade with neighboring islands and even control multiple islands of your own at the same time...

Upcoming 'Overkill 3' Turns the Series into a 3rd-Person, Cover-Based Shooter

Yesterday, Craneballs Studio officially unveiled Overkill 3 on our forums, and it's quite a departure from the previous entries in the popular free to play shooter series. The big change is that Overkill 3 will be a cover-based 3rd-person shooter as opposed to the gallery-style shooters of the first two Overkill games as well as the 1930s mafia-themed spinoff Overkill Mafia. You can get a sense of what Overkill 3 will be like in the following teaser...
