Hey, here's just a quick heads up that the massive Infinity Blade III [$6.99] update that we detailed last week is now alive and kicking in the App Store. And that's not all, as for the first time since its release in September, Infinity Blade III is currently on sale for just $2.99. The new update, called Ausar Rising, adds tons of new quests, items, a new Infinity weapon, and just so, so much more. It also adds two brand new modes, one of which is called the Deathless Mode and is detailed by Donald Mustard in this new video...

Our collective minds were blown earlier this summer when Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic [$9.99] hit the iPad, and that mindset continued through our review. KOTOR is a game with a ton of history behind it, and our review's conclusion is just as relevant for the new universal update as it was when it was iPad exclusive:..

When EA and Firemonkeys first revealed their "time-shifted multiplayer" in Real Racing 3 [Free] at the iPhone 5 event last year, it sounded like a perfect fit for a mobile game. It was essentially like racing ghosts of other real players from around the world, but it gave those ghosts their own AI so they could react dynamically when you raced against them. It was like being able to race against real people without needing those real people to be online at the exact same time as you, which can be difficult when gaming on the go...

When Super Stickman Golf 2 [$0.99] launched in March of this year, it expanded on and improved over the original game in just about every way, which is really saying something as the first Super Stickman Golf was sublime. Several months later, in August, a huge version 2.0 update added even more greatness in the form of new characters, new courses, replay sharing and a whole lot more. The team at Noodlecake has been somewhat quiet on the Super Stickman Golf front since then, but this week they've unveiled a small portion of what to expect from yet another huge update which is set to go live in January...

Rovio has just release a new update to the original Angry Birds Star Wars, and it appears as if it will be the last update for the game. Not surprising really, since Angry Birds Star Wars II [$0.99] launched this past September and has taken over its predecessor in the charts. ..

It seems like only yesterday that Pixbits updated their crafting adventure game Junk Jack X [$4.99] with a Thanksgiving theme and tons of other new content, but it was actually just under a month ago. Still, that's an incredibly short amount of time to already be releasing another update, but that's exactly what Pixbits has done as a new Christmas themed update has gone live for the game...

Late last week, Rodeo Games' Warhammer Quest [$4.99] received a new batch of paid DLC, and like its previous expansion released in early October, it adds a good amount of new content for those looking to get more out of this already fantastic strategic dungeon crawler...

Bioware's classic Star Wars RPG Knights of the Old Republic [$9.99] found new life and a brand new audience when it launched on the iPad back in May of this year, and according to IGN, a forthcoming update will include iPhones and iPod touches in on the fun. The game will reportedly require users have at least an iPhone 4S or a 5th generation iPod touch in order to run the robust title. ..

The huge Minecraft - Pocket Edition [$6.99] update which developer Mojang detailed back in October is now available in the App Store. The biggest addition is the ability to craft minecarts and rails to run them on. While Redstone is in the mobile version now in a limited capacity, you can't yet make circuits out of the Redstone dust, though it does seem you can power your minecart rails with it...

Infinity Blade III [$6.99] is set to receive what developer Chair is calling "The biggest Infinity Blade update ever!" next week, on December 19th. The update is called Ausar Rising, and features the return of Siris' previous incarnation Ausar the Vile. Together with Isa, they'll set out to destroy the dark mirror of Ausar in a series of new quests featuring new enemies which include two new Deathless. You'll also be able to return to the castle from the original Infinity Blade, the God King's Dark Citadel, for the first time, as well as other new environments...

Just a quick heads-up to let you know that the Sonic The Hedgehog 2 [$2.99] remastered update, which we gave you some first impressions of yesterday, is now available as a free update to the original game in the App Store. Additionally, if you're amongst the Android ranks, the game is now available on Google Play for the first time ever. In addition to improved visuals, widescreen and Universal iPad support, and a 60fps frame rate, this remastered Sonic 2 also includes brand new additions like a Boss Attack Mode, an online 2-player mode, Knuckles as a playable character right from the start, and the first ever official inclusion of the long-lost Hidden Palace Zone which was scrapped from the original Sega Genesis version of the game just days before release back in 1992...

The massively popular, "life-ruiningly fun" The Simpsons: Tapped Out [Free] iOS game continues its near-monthly tradition of updates, this time with a Christmas update full of holiday goodies. Let's jump right into what's new. First off, presents and gift bags can now be found spread around Springfield offering goodies with a tap, and you can collect spin tokens to take a shot at winning even more prizes in Krusty's Non-Denominational Holiday Giveaway. There's some new holiday characters, like Ebenezer Burns, Mr. Costington of Costington's Department Store fame, and Barney as the infamous Plow King. There's new buildings too, like Springfield Mall filled with holiday shoppers, the Helter Shelter homeless facility, an Egg Nog Bar, and loads of Christmas decorations from ClausCo. Finally, you can now build the Happy Elves ride at Krustyland, you know, for kids. The Christmas update includes a new quest storyline to play through too, which sees Springfield residents rolling in the virtual cash of gift cards due to a clerical error. How come stuff like that never happens to me?..

505 Games' action/crafting platformer Terraria [$4.99] is getting into the holiday spirit with its latest update. Just in time for Christmas, you'll now have the chance to score a Christmas ornament when chopping down trees. ..

It's been nearly a year since Kumobius's Time Surfer [$0.99] was released on the App Store, and today it's received another major update adding new Holiday themed content. Time Surfer took the hill-sliding mechanic of Tiny Wings and combined it with a Braid-like rewind mechanic to create one of the more exciting and interesting endless runners out there. Fantastic pixel graphics and an amazing soundtrack rounded out the package, and we really loved Time Surfer in our review following its release. Since then it's been updated with new costumes, new pets, and even a brand new mode called The Kepler Run which significantly altered the normal gameplay. Time Surfer seemed to just keep getting better with age...

When One Man Left released Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous [$2.99] a few weeks back, the long-awaited sequel to one of the App Store's all-time classics, there was much rejoicing. It improved upon the original with improved visuals, a multitude of awesome new power-ups, and challenging boss fights. It did all the things you want a sequel to a great game to do, but there were some hang-ups. ..
