Well, Samsung went right ahead and announced the Galaxy S8 last night. It's the newest in the South Korean firm's range of smartphones, and it's got a few new features that gamers are definitely going to be interested in. And a few potential problems too.

Destiny 2 for iPhone and iPad won't happen, but you could play these games instead

Well. Wellity wellity well. Bungie has gone and announced Destiny 2. I mean, sort of, it's shown a picture with the word Destiny and a big number 2, which could mean a lot of things. But I'm gonna go ahead and say Destiny 2 is coming to consoles this year. But console games, as we all know, are for dweebs. Mobile is where all the best experiences are at. Yup. Sure. We all definitely believe that. Move on. Nothing to see here. Which got me thinking, what games could you play on your iPad or iPhone to get some of that sweet Destiny feeling in your eyes and fingers. Since, y'know, the game is highly unlikely to ever come to mobile. So here's a list of games that might just scratch your mobil…

Its latest game, Card Thief, just came out on the App Store, and it's really, really good. So I thought we'd have a look at three other games from the dev that you should definitely play.

The Monday Musing - The best console tie-in games for iPhone and iPad

Well The Elder Scrolls: Legends came out last week. It's a card game set in the super famous Western RPG universe. There are cards, monsters, and it's all wrapped up with some pleasing strategy that reveals itself as you play. But that got me thinking about big console games that have made the transition to mobile. Not ports, but games that have taken some part of their experience and transcribed that onto touchscreen. So in today's Monday Musing that's what we're going to have a look at. You can click on the emboldened names of the games to download them.
