Spacetime Studios has launched a new expansion for their latest 3D MMORPG called Arcane Legends. This new content expansion, called Kraken Isles, brings with it a lot of new content that happens to be themed around pirates and the open sea life of a pirate. In fact you will be traveling by ship to the Kraken Isles to start your new adventures.
So today marks another milestone for Rovio and their Angry Birds franchise but instead of download numbers this milestone is for YouTube views. Rovio has surpassed the 1 billion views mark on YouTube, something that rarely happens unless you sing songs like Gangnam Style.
What do you get when you combine trains with waves of undead brain hungry zombies? Nothing really except puddles of splattered blood everywhere and that is pretty much what you’re going to get in Kristanix Games’ newest title appropriately named Zombies & Trains.
Our friends over at Retrobomb just dropped us a note to inform us that their game, Expendable Rearmed, has gone on sale for a limited time at 50% off. This revamped and re-imaged version of the classic Dreamcast game brings with it all of the action the original had but with completely new visuals and controls specifically designed for mobile devices.
Capcom apparently has plans to bring their Mega Man themed social game Rockman Xover over to Android devices at some point in the relatively near future. On top of that the company is holding a contest for people to design a boss and the winner will then have his or her boss included into the game.
Back in March of last year we talked about a WipeOut-style futuristic racing game heading our way later that year called Flashout 3D from Jujubee. Well the April release date came and went, along with many other months after that, with no game being released. Almost a year later, Flashout 3D has finally made its appearance onto the Google Play store.
Yesterday, as probably most of you are aware of, Sony held their Playstation event where the company announced their next console, the Playstation 4. The press conference, which seemed to last forever, also featured a lot of information on mobile aspects that the console will bring with its release. While most of it was focused on the PS Vita, there was some interesting news regarding Android smartphones and tablets as well.
Back in mid-January of this year we mentioned a few games had landed on the Japanese Google Play store from Kairosoft. One of those games was called Stakes Ranch G1 which was the actual translation of the title. Well it might have taken a bit longer than we had originally though but that game is now available on Google Play for everyone under it’s official English name called Pocket Stables.
