Butterscotch Shenanigans have released their second game onto Google Play called Quadropus Rampage, a game we’ve talked about a couple of times in the past including why the company would be releasing it for free. As they are calling it, this game is an endless roguelike action-rpg brawler which is a hell of a lot of genres wrapped into one title.

Another Ouya game has been confirmed as of today and that is Vlambeer’s Super Crate Box. Of course since this game is on just about every platform known to mankind, an Ouya version is all too surprising but it is good to know that it is coming and will be shown off during E3 2013.

Guillermo del Toro has has a new movie coming out in July called Pacific Rim and Reliance Games have been commissioned to created a movie spin-off game that will be coming to mobile phones and tablets this Summer as well.

Zynga is having some troubles these days when it comes to making money and unfortunately some of their recent acquisitions are going to be suffering for this with the first one being OMGPop.

If they leave, their severance packages will, unfortunately, be slashed as well.
