It is always nice to see the return of a series that has lost a bit of its global staying power, and thanks to Lilith Games' latest collaboration, Warpath will be playing host the the run-and-gun legend that is Metal Slug 3.
Released in the late 90s and set in the fat too near 2028, anyone else feeling old yet, the Metal Slug series followed the exploits of the Peregrine Falcons Special Forces Squad, led by technological wunderkind Marco Rossi. The team was soon bolstered by a partnership street kid-turned-spy Eri Kasamoto, who was the worst spy in existence thanks to her speciality of throwing bombs everywhere.

We’re getting closer and closer to Halloween every day, which means everyone’s gearing up to watch their favorite horror movies, make weekend trips out to pumpkin patches, and do all kinds of other, fun seasonal stuff before this month ends and everyone looks toward Thanksgiving.
If you’re in the midst of all your Halloween activities and you want to take a break with some games that match the spirit, we’ve got good news for you. There’s a bunch of great games on the App Store that can get you in the mood for Halloween, and we’ve compiled a list of the best ones in a handy little list. We've also added a "spookiness rating" (1=not scary, 5=scariest) to each one so you can find the right game for you. Check out the picks below:
It goes without saying, but I'm going to anyway, that actual gameplay and graphics are incredibly important, but they can mean nothing without the right sound. Music sets the atmosphere, whether it's relaxing in a town, the budding swell of adventure, or that dramatic twang when a boss arrives, and Tarisland has landed itself a legend in this arena.
The upcoming cross-platform MMORPG has announced that world-renowned, Emmy Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated composer Russell Brower will be contributing a lot of music for the game, across a multitude of different regions in the world. Having such proven hands taking the reins in the audio realm definitely sets Tarisland in good stead.
If you have ever wondered how the fast-food magnate Harland Sanders ever gained the rank of Colonel, then you are in luck as we are about to see the chicken slinger in action as KFC collides with PUBG Mobile for a limited time, with in-game restaurants, items, and outfits to collect.
EVE is one of those game franchises that if you haven’t played it, you still most definitely know about it, thanks to its sprawling world, limitless playstyle, or the tales of year-long subterfuge for players to eliminate an enemy. Now, the freestyle fun is expanding thanks to CCP Games' announcement of the 4X strategy game EVE Galaxy Conquest.
Conquest sees its playerbase team up to battle opponents for interstellar supremacy, taking command of a legion of ships from one of EVE online empires; the Caldari State, Gallente Federation, Amarr Empire, or Minmatar Republic. Unfortunately, there will be no independent rampant piracy for you today.
Square Enix commemorates one of its greatest forgotten franchises in new Final Fantasy Brave Exvius collaboration
One of the most criminally underused properties in the Square Enix roster is undoubtedly Parasite Eve, a fantastic fusion of Resident Evil and Final Fantasy that deserved far more than two PlayStation One Games and a PSP follow-up. Now, however, Aya Brea is stepping back into the spotlight thanks to a collaboration between Eve and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.
If you haven’t played anything from the Parasite Eve catalogue you are missing out. It starts with the protagonist, rookie cop Aya Brea, attending an opera only to have everyone area her spontaneously combust, which sets the tone for the rest of the game. The combat system was a then-experimental mix that combined an Active Turn-based system with free movement to dodge attacks as you used parasite powers to save Manhattan.
NASCAR often gets a bad reputation outside of America, but there is a certain charm to it with its close side-by-side action and its focus on pure speed, but it never managed to really massively break out internationally. Now, there's a chance that will change thanks to automotive game experts Hutch announcing a partnership with the racing giants.
Hutch has staked a claim as perhaps the top racing developer on mobile, with big hits like the Supercar smash Race Kings, the more cerebral Top Drives, or the officially licensed F1 Clash, perhaps the biggest testament to their talents. This experience with another of the world's top car sports with be no doubt invaluable as they develop this NASCAR title, and at a pretty big milestone.
Name the most Norse bird you can think of, then give it a twist because Playdigious is introducing not the Raven clan, mostly because they already exist, but the Clan of the Eagle in Northgard’s latest DLC. If you find gathering resources a challenge, then you are definitely going to want to see this.
The Clan of the Eagle, or Hraesvelg, are led by Grif because Big Bird sounded too silly. As a young child, Grif lived through the destruction of their parent’s clan, before being adopted by Hraesvelg. Living through this, then rising to the command of their new clan shows levels of adaptability that gave them the skills to be a perfect leader.
You may have thought that a game series revolving around biscuits in battle would not have the best-staying power, but Devsisters have proven that so wrong with these massively popular CookieRun series. And now, the latest entry in this delicious series has finally revealed its name; CookieRun: Tower of Adventures.
Previously known as Project B, presumably for baked goods or perhaps Bookie, Tower of Adventurers will be a casual action game with real-time action combat, and will be the franchise's first 3D, for maximum snack power. It will even feature cooperative play because no one cookie is a full meal.
Dust off your phones that you are probably reading this on, and get ready for some absurdist fun as Jackbox Party Pack 10 releases this October. Gather some funds and take part in five new games, including a return of one fan favourite, just in time to put on a hilarious Halloween party.
Tee K.O 2 will take players back to the fan-favourite Tee Shirt Island to draw the ultimate shirt for everyone to vote on. Even if you can’t draw, Jackbox games always reward ingenuity and humour. You will have new drawing tools, and the ability to use different fonts, or you can even choose different garments like a hoodie.
Get yourself a headstart on the Halloween season, as Nexon and Nitro Studios bring a scarily earlier seasonal update to its racer, KartRider: Drift. Season 4: Hallo-Drift brings spooky new tracks, characters, and even a striking new mode for everyone to sink their fangs into.
Crossover Mode is a brand new way to play, and combines aspects from the two core existing modes; Speed and Item. Item boxes will spawn on the track for racers to collect and use, and you will be able to fill up that Boost Gauge through drifting to make sure you get that box before anyone else. It’s a combination of the best that Drift has to offer.
If you are looking for a new phone then the upcoming iPhone 15 could jump to the top of your wishlist with the recent announcement by Capcom that Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village will be available on the Pro and Pro Max devices. You can also grab these outstanding titles on an iPad Air or iPad Pro with an M1 chip or later.
This marks the first time that these two titles will be available on smartphones, and they are definitely worth the price. Whilst they don’t retain much of the straight original survival horror aspects of the original instalments, both leaning a bit more toward action, both have won Game of the Year accolades, and Resident Evil 4 is no doubt one of the most beloved in the series.
When a developer puts out a mystery game influenced by a show like Twin Peaks, you know you are in for an incredibly interesting time, and that is what The Isle Tide Hotel promises. In this interactive mystery movie, you will need to collect clues, solve puzzles, and always remember not to break the Etiquettes.
Once a year, for three nights only, the Isle Tide Hotel opens its doors to a group of people with only one thing bringing them; their search for the meaning of life. This year, however, the answer is within reach, provided they hand over a sacrifice to their founder, Dr Aniston, who promises this act will conclude the search.
Android users look away now lest your eyes melt from envy, as Magic Fuel Games has announced a new, absolutely wonderful mode for the Apple Arcade city-building game Cityscapes: Sim Builder.
