It’s a difficult time for fans of Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series, as Part 4 has been officially delayed until this Thursday.

4 of the funniest mobile games on iPad and iPhone

Posted by Harry Slater on September 13th, 2016

There's a new video game comedy show coming from Seth Rogen. I don't know about you, but that whole sentence has filled me with a sort of awful dread. It's creeping up my chest, and I feel like it's about strangle me.

Anyway, it'll probably pass. So while I'm shivering on the floor wondering where the whole world has gone wrong, I thought I'd take the time to think up some of the funniest games on the App Store.

Because I don't know, someone had to, and since it's pretty late and everyone else is probably out having a lovely time with people who they like and who like them, it may as well be me. Sigh. Here goes. Fun times.

Titanfall Frontline and the best and worst console to mobile tie-in games

Posted by Harry Slater on September 13th, 2016

There's a Titanfall card battler coming out. So that's a thing. Now let's all take a moment to think about the sort of content we could spin out of that fact. Remember to consider SEO while your cogs are whirring.

Oh wait, I've got it, let's look at some of the other tie-in games that have come out on the App Store and have a good old laugh about them.

Who knows, we might even find some good ones out there? I can think of like maybe two. I'll try and think some more as I get deeper into the list, but I'm not promising anything. Let's just roll with it and see what happens.

7 reasons Luigi deserves a mobile game rather than Mario

Posted by Harry Slater on September 12th, 2016

Look, I don't want to start an argument because of my excellent content writing skills, but anyone who's anyone knows that Luigi is the best of the Mario brothers. I mean, for starters his first name and his second name aren't exactly the same. That instantly makes him more trustworthy.

Plus he's the underdog, the other brother, the charming moustache-wearing loser who secretly we all root for. He's more than the player two character, he's an institution. I mean he had a whole year dedicated to him. Remember that? That was a thing that actually happened.

To that end, here are just some of the reasons that it should be Luigi spearheading Nintendo's next mobile game and not his stupid brother whose name I've already pretty much forgotten. Martin or something, I think.

Bowmasters character guide: All the archers you could ever want

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on September 6th, 2016
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

I don't know much about archery in real life, meaning if there's an apocalypse that leaves us having to hunt food without firearms, I won't be much help. But I've always loved archery in comics, movies, and video games, which is one of the reasons I love Bowmasters.

The game's dark humor and silly gore (if there is such a thing) help a lot too. Most of all, I just want to collect all the different characters and put them all through their paces, even if that means they'll all end up dying bloody deaths dozens of times over. C'est la vie, right?

A few new ones were added to the mix in a recent update, meaning there are now more options than ever for your arrow-shooting pleasure. Here's the entire list of Bowmasters in one handy character guide.
