Firefly Online Announced

Whedon fans have long dreamed of the day when the beloved sci-fi series Firefly would return - but I don't think any of them expected it to happen like this. At Comic-Con this week, SparkPlug games announced Firefly Online, a social MMORPG set to launch on iOS and Android in early 2014.

 

New Releases this week | July 22nd – July 28th

Pretty dead week this week for releases (especially for consoles). You just know it's a slow week when Smurfs 2 is the headline game.

 

Infinity Blade: Dungeons canceled

When Impossible Games closed their doors earlier this year, Epic Games wasn't quite ready to kibosh Infinity Blade: Dungeons, Impossible's Diablo-like action RPG due to hit the mobile gaming-sphere sometime this year..... yet. A few months later, however, the news is now official: the highly-anticipated Infinity Blade: Dungeons is cancelled.

 
 

New Releases this week | July 15th – 21st 2013

The upcoming 7 days sees quite a lot of variety with RPGs, brain dead shooters, snail racing, and even men in bowler hats. No PC releases but the other...

 

Worms 3 Announced

Team 17 have announced that they'll be releasing Worms 3 on iOS towards the end of this year. Worms 2 was released in 1997, so it's been a hell of a wait, but hopefully it'll end up having been worth it. Worms 3 will bring together a number of things from more recent spin-offs, including the class-based combat of the rather excellent Worms Revolution.

New Releases this week | July 1st – July 7th 2013

This week's new releases are severely lacking especially for the 2 main consoles, but Limbo comes to iOS on Wednesday so that kind of makes up for the big release short comings. The popular indie game is accompanied by some minor, small releases but hey, it's July.

 

Limbo releases on IOS 7/3

Since its release in 2010, Playdead's award-winning platformer Limbo has sold over three million copies, an impressive number for any studio's first official title. Yesterday, the Dutch developers dropped a bit of surprise on the gaming world, announcing that their monochromatic side-scroller will release on iOS on July 3rd.

 

Apple Paying Parents of “Accidental Purchase” Kids

As somebody who is at least reasonably intelligent, there's a good chance that you wouldn't allow your children access to your credit card in a toy shop. You probably wouldn't give them a thousand dollars to hold either. Apparently, though, if you have over your phone, fail to use the included parental controls and your kid spends way too much on doughnuts, smurf berries and skins, it is the manufacturer of the phone that is at fault.

 
 

XCOM for iOS releases 6/20 for $19.99

Well, that didn't take long. After announcing an iOS version of their award-winning strategy title earlier this spring, Firaxis Games wasted no time optimizing XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the touch screen: on Monday they announced the game would hit the App Store this Thursday for $19.99. That's right, the full XCOM experience (save for DLC, though Firaxis could always release this later as an in-app purchase) will launch for $10-20 cheaper than most retailers currently sell the console/PC version.
