Bioshock announced for phones, gamers let out collective groan

  2K Games have announced that Bioshock, the seminal 2007 FPS, is being ported down to the latest generations of iPhone and iPad. Once the mobile gaming community stopped organizing the stack of paperwork at their desks or waiting at the bus stop, they cheered! Immediately after that, they loaded up Candy Crush and spent $100,000 collectively on gems, raspberries or whatever else it is you buy in that game. The remainder of the...

The Walking Dead Season Two: All That Remains Review

Skylanders: Lost Islands Review

Welcome back, Portal Master! It hasn’t been that long since the launch of Skylanders: Giants and there’s already another Skylanders game to keep me from being productive. Vicarious Visions’ previous iOS take on the Skylanders license was fun, but left a lot to be desired with their simplistic Skylanders: Cloud Patrol. This time, they created a resource management game with a Skylanders twist, making Skylanders: Lost...
