'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: Firefly Online is still in development, and hopefully coming soon.

SNK's Latest Fighting Game Port 'The King of Fighters '98' Out Now

When we reported that King of Fighters '98 [$3.99] was coming to mobile soon, we were not kidding around, as soon meant "this week" – you can download this classic Neo-Geo fighting game regarded as one of the best in the series right now. The port is done by the usual suspects at DotEmu, who

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

Storm and Polaris Come to 'Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past', Currently On Sale for a Dollar

Historically, movie tie-in games have sucked, but it seems like that trend might ever so slowly be changing. Temple Run has produced a couple of fun movie tie-in spinoffs, the Guardians of the Galaxy mobile game is pretty good, and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [$3.99] game seems really promising. Another good example is Glitchsoft's

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

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: Angry Birds Transformers is still in the "coming soon" camp, with few other details

'Hearthstone' Curse of Naxxramas Guide: Free to Play Decks to Beat the Heroic Arachnid Quarter

Yesterday I posted about how I managed to beat the heroic difficulty of Hearthstone's [Free (HD)] Arachnid Quarter in the new Curse of Naxxramas expansion. All three decks were loaded with epic and legendary cards, and I suspected that it was entirely possible to beat them with way cheaper decks. Well, less than a day

'Thomas Was Alone' Drops to $3.99 and Goes Universal

Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone [$3.99] is one of those things I wish I could delete from my brain. Not because it was bad, but because it was so good and the original experience was so powerful I want to experience it fresh all over again. It's an insanely clever game, as on the surface

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.

'Hearthstone' Curse of Naxxramas Guide - Tips and Decks to Beat Heroic Arachnid Quarter

Yesterday the Hearthstone [Free (HD)] expansion Curse of Naxxramas was released. The non-heroic difficulty levels of the three bosses and class challenges are pretty easy, but heroic is an entirely different ball game.

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,

'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.

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. To do that, you and your opponent will take turns placing tiles. You can take

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.
