RollerCoaster Tycoon 4...mobile.. *sigh* - UPDATE Yes, there will be a PC Version -

by: John - - Add a Comment

I know a lot of people have been clamoring for another RollerCoaster Tycoon, but this isn't probably what they had in mind.

Atari today announced that RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile will be coming to iOS devices. Yeah, mobile. From the sounds of it, I bet there's going to be a bunch of microtransactions as well making this version of RollerCoaster Tycoon one that I'll pass up on. I just have a feeling Atari will Dungeon Keeper this one as well.

Guess I'll go back to the third game, which can be had from Steam.

- Update - Atari has mentioned on their Facebook page that a PC version of the game is coming out in the Fall of 2014. Hopefully, it's a full fledged sequel and worthy of the RollerCoaster Tycoon name. Fall 2014 isn't that far off, so I hope they start showing what they have done soon.

Hearthstone will have about 300 different cards to start with and booster packs of 5 will cost $1. Like card games of norm, the more you spend the better chances you have of winning.

[UPDATE] The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2 launches March 4 on PlayStation 3 – Xbox 360 and iOS later

by: Randy - - Add a Comment

[UPDATE: According to this tweet from developer Telltale Games, launch dates for The Walking Dead Season Two – Episode Two is as follows: PC/Mac on March 4, Xbox 360 on March 5, and iOS on March 6.]

The Walking Dead Season One put players in binds, episode after episode, for an entire harrowing five-episode run.

Season Two is no joke either, with Episode One not exactly out to get laughs. Now, we've got a launch date for Episode Two: A House Divided — it's tomorrow, March 4 — while we wait for the usual Telltale Games song and dance for release dates on the other platforms.

It should be on Xbox 360 and iOS the following day, March 5, but I'm only guessing. I know Sony probably handed over a bagfull of cash to get a 24-hour jump on the competition, but let's just go ahead and have the release calendar nailed down for the public when there's only 48 hours to go, ok, Telltale Games? It was cute having these at-the-last-minute launch announcements during Season One, but ithis routine's gotten old. Same goes for The Wolf Among Us. You're not in danger of overhyping when you give me a one or two-week launch announcement. I'm capable of managing my own hype levels, thank you.

Pier Solar HD may end up on 3DS and Wii U

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

Pier Solar and the Great Architects was a Sega Mega Drive/Genesis homebrew RPG released in December of 2010. In an attempt to reach a wider audience, developer WaterMelon Co. created a KickStarter campaign to make an HD version they could release on modern platforms. The KickStarter met it goal, and the game is set to release sometime this year on a variety of systems, including a Wii U version that would take advantage of the GamePad screen for special features. Now the developer says that a 3DS version may be on the way using the same second screen features.

I have been looking forward to the HD release of Pier Solar for awhile, and now I learn its coming to my favorite handheld as well? Count me in! I can't wait to see what this game is all about when it releases in the coming months.

Papercraft adventure game Tengami releasing February 20th

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

If you aren't already familiar with Nyamyam's pop-up book style game Tengami you better familiarize yourself quick. This beautiful papercraft adventure game will be releasing on iOS February 20th, with Wii U, PC, and Mac versions coming later this year. In this game you use the touch screen to interact with a paper environment, pushing and pulling pieces to solve puzzles and progress. The game will cost $4.99 when it releases on the App Store.

Tengami's paper world reminds me a lot of Tearaway, but with a bigger focus on puzzle solving. I'm still not sure if I will get the iOS version Thursday or wait for the Wii U version, but either way I'm looking forward to playing this great looking game.
