We haven’t reported on the progress regarding the big 0.9.0 update for Minecraft: Pocket Edition in quite some time but now it looks like it might be worth posting an update. Why is that you might ask? Because it appears that the 0.9.0 update will be arriving as soon as tomorrow or as late as next week. It all stems on about seven bugs that need squashing.

The Humble Bundle PC and Android 10 sale just got a lot more interesting. It was already a fantastic deal with three games available for pay what you want and the critically acclaimed Breach & Clear and Skulls of the Shogun and Fieldrunners 2 along with the arcade classic Metal Slug 3 available for those who pay more than the average.
Gameloft has been teasing three games over the course of the last few weeks. One is Modern Combat 5: Blackout which we have been following closely and reporting on all the new details and screenshots that get released. Another one is a game that hasn’t had its name revealed yet, although we have our guessed as to what it is and we will be posting those later today. The last is Gameloft’s jousting title called Rival Knights.
Flashout 2 is a fast paced racing game, which is set in the future and you use anti-gravity ships to win money and fame. Throughout playing this game I couldn’t help but liken it to F-Zero or Extreme G. It won’t pass for either of those, but it’s definitely in the same category. With that frame of reference in place, there’s a lot to like about this game.
At a time when even Epic Games can’t resist contributing to the proliferation of Flappy Bird clones, Warner Bros. Entertainment and Gree Inc. have opted to release an entry into the tried and true endless running category. Batman & The Flash: Hero Run is the latest iteration of the formula popularized by Imangi Studios and their breakout hit, Temple Run.
Square Enix’s new Hitman game called Hitman GO has just landed on iTune for iOS owners today. Even though there is an Android version of Hitman GO as well, our version isn’t available just yet but it will be very soon. Even though waiting sucks, thankfully there is a new 12 minute video showing off the gameplay for Hitman GO that we get to check out to see if it is something we would want to buy.
Due to the popularity of The Walking Dead franchise it should not really be much of a surprise that Zen Studios will be bringing The Walking Dead: Season 1 to Zen Pinball in the form of a new tablet to play. Considering how much eye candy, animation and general fun most pinball tables from Zen Studio have, this newly announced The Walking Dead table should be pretty good.
Since the announcement of a new socially conscience version of Angry Birds was heading our way, there hasn’t been too much information released since then. Today, however, we have news that Angry Birds Stella will be arriving some time this Fall and we also have a screenshot of an actual level from the game.
Developers going by the name of Eltechs who have released a port of DOOM and Heretic onto Android along with the PC game emulator called ExaGear Strategies have updated their emulator to include support for three additional games today. If you’re a fan of playing retro PC games on your Android device, then this is some good news for you.
Gameloft is on a roll with new releases lately. We all know that the crowd is very excited about the upcoming Modern Combat 5: Blackout but there is more to come. Rival Knights was also recently revealed as a new jousting game, presented with some well put together trailers, but now we have a third game creeping its way into the “coming soon” lists, however nothing is really known about it.
