The Alchemists (with Warner Bros.) has just released new app called Transcendence: Origins, which also serves as a prequel plot for upcoming sci-fi major motion movie Transcendence, due out in theaters in mid-April 2014.

Transcendence: Origins is available for free on the App Store.

Jurassic Park: The Game to Show Off More Isla Nublar

Posted by Rob Rich on November 14th, 2011

In just a few short days, Telltale Games' second "adventure game that's practically a sequel for the movie it's based on" will be unleashed. On less mobile devices, anyway. The iPad 2 version is set to follow soon after the November 15th release date, but nothing specific has been stated as of yet. That's okay though, because we have these new morsels of information to tide us over.

Jurassic Park: The Game takes us back to Isla Nublar shortly after the events of the first film, following a new cast of characters simply trying to escape the island with their lives intact. However, it's not just about the new faces: this time around we're going to be seeing more of the park itself. Sure there will be familiar areas (i.e. Dennis Nedry's "ditched" vehicle), but we've also learned of some new locations players will get to explore that weren't covered in the movie.

Locations such as the still under-construction Bone Shaker Roller Coaster, the Geothermal Power Plant, Dr. Laura Sorkin's Field Lab used for observational studies (as well as some unsanctioned and dangerous experiments, the North Docks which are a stone's throw away from the iconic Visitor's Center, and finally the Marine Facility (video featured below), which I'm personally terrified to experience. Wait until the end of the clip to see what I mean.

iPad 2 owners, keep an eye on that App Store after the 15th. There might not be an official release date for the iOS version, but I'd imagine it might only be a week or two longer. Heck, since the 15th is a Tuesday it's also not out of the question to consider it might be available on the 17th (Thursday). So... Anyone have an iPad 2 they don't want anymore..?


Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots

By Rob Rich on October 24th, 2011
Slicing up produce is always a good time, but owners of the original Fruit Ninja don't have much reason to invest in this all-too-similar spin-off. Unless they REALLY like Antonio Banderas.

Who doesn't love dragons? Everyone loves dragons. Unfortunately playing as a dragon isn't quite enough to convince yourself that there may be better games in this genre.
