Nintendo's Mobile 'Animal Crossing' Still Coming in 2017

I know that E3 was pretty devoid of mobile content, with Nintendo being one of the culprits, but in this case no news wasn't necessarily bad news.

Create Tsunamis and Rainbows in 'The Sandbox Evolution' Disasters 2 Update, Launching June 28th

So many modern games carry the 'sandbox' moniker without truly being endless havens of experimentation like the genre label suggests.

Apple Removes 58,000 Applications From the Chinese App Store - Is the 32-Bit Appocalypse Near?

What us at TouchArcade Towers have coined the '32-bit Appocalypse' has been a significant cause of much anxiety amongst both mobile gamers and developers on the App Store of late.

Musgravian Musings - SEGA Forever's Launch is a Disaster

Hello everyone, and welcome to Musgravian Musings, a little space of my own where I can do some non-review reflections on recent game releases. In general, the featured games are ones that have caught my interest in some way or another, and will tend to be games that I didn't (and won't) review. This time,

MMORPG 'Crusaders of Light' Launching July 13th, Includes 40-Person Raids
