Devsisters bow to fan backlash over planned update to CookieRun: Kingdom

The oft-paraphrased Gordon Gecko once opined that “greed is good”, a mantra he clearly did not trot out in front of a ravenous cookie-based fan base. After some impressive levels of backlash, the team behind CookieRun: Kingdom has announced that their much-maligned update will be postponed as they address their audience concerns. Originally slated to be released June 19th, Devsisters posted a tweet thanking the community for their, rather optimistically worded, feedback on these matters. As well as stating their desire to look at what the rabble wanted, they have also confirmed that for the time being, all ongoing game events and shop deals will be extended. It appears that a l…

Wrecking Golf is out now on iOS and Android, letting you score hole-in-ones with casual physics-based controls

Dusan Popovic has announced the official launch of Wrecking Golf on mobile, offering both iOS and Android players plenty of casual golfing fun across 8-bit visuals and simple controls. The game's physics-based mechanics add an addictive element similar to Angry Birds and Flappy Bird, complemented with short levels made to be enjoyed on the go. In Wrecking Golf, you might just find that time is an illusion, given the game's addictive nature that entices you to complete "just one more level" each time. Physics can be a tricky little thing, so trying to target holes with your aim may not always be as simple as it seems. With the game's lovely soundtrack and easy-on-the-eyes visuals, it's an…

Recruit one of the most well-rounded Warframes yet as the Jade Shadows Cinematic Update launches

Recruit one of the most well-rounded Warframes yet as the Jade Shadows Cinematic Update launches

It feels like it has been a very long time coming, especially for impatient excitable fools like yours truly, but finally, the next big update has hit Warframe. Jade Shadows is here, bringing with it a bumper crop of story content to ninja through, and, of course, the arrival of the 57th Warframe. First off, possibly the most exciting part of the update is the new Warframe, Jade. She comes equipped with three new weapons; the Evensong bow, Cantare Throwing Knives, and Harmony Scythe. She is also packing quite an appealing skillset, able to buff damage and shield regen, heal, and debuff foes. Top that with an ultimate to obliterate your foes, and you are going to want a Jade on your every te…

The world is gearing up for the Summers War World Arena Championship (SWC2024)

It is almost time for the eighth annual Summoners War World Arena Championship, with players able to stick their names down for the preliminaries until June 24th. Participants will be selected based on their in-game World Arena records from Season 28th and 29th and will take part in a best-of-five tournament. The European Preliminaries are set to take place from August 3rd to the 10th, with 16 players taking part, whittling down to 4 who will advance to the regionals. If you are one of the lucky few, you will head to Berlin on September 21st for the European Regional Cup, where the top 3 will head to the World Finals.  August 31st to September 7th is when the Americas Preliminaries wi…

Completely break the game with two new heroes in Seven Knights Idle Adventure

Completely break the game with two new heroes in Seven Knights Idle Adventure

It appears that Netmarble has decided Seven Knights Idle Adventure should have an easy mode, and has therefore decided to release two new characters. One of which has a skill that sounds like he could single-handedly beat any boss in the game blindfolded. If you are looking to add a bit of edge to your team, the Legendary Melee Dark Knight Platin could be the one for you. He has a single target skill that can deal additional damage equal to the target’s Max HP, which after reading it multiple times still sounds just insanely broken. When a Critical Hit Attack is successfully activated he will receive a buff that also enhances Bonus Damage Rate, just in case you think he isn't hitting…

KartRider Rush+ enters the medieval realm with new Camelot season

KartRider Rush+ enters the medieval realm with new Camelot season

I am a big fan of mythology; Greek, Roman, and especially Norse to name a few, but sadly as a Brit we lack those grandiose stories of pantheons and giants and the like. What we do have are the Arthurian legends though which are fascinating in their own right, and are the focus of the new KartRider Rush+ season. Camelot, as the 26th season has been knighted, comes equipped with two new Arthurian tracks, Pendragon Castle and the Knights Camp. You can also revisit the Mine in the Cascading Waterfalls, which sounds particularly pretty. Of course, there are new wheels to enjoy this new location in, with the Inferno Ranger and Astral Ranger bursting onto the track. Not particularly mythical sound…

Ubisoft confirms Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be coming out on iPad

More and more lately it feels like I am seeing more announcements of AAA games coming to mobile, and it is a delight. Mostly on Apple, yes, but it is still great to see mobile gaming flourish this rapidly, and thanks to Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Shadows is the next title to follow the trend.  It has taken a long time to get to Japan, which is weird because home of actual ninjas, but finally the Ubisoft smash series is headed to feudal Japan. There will be two characters to play as here; the stealthy and silent shinobi Naoe, and the powerful and legendary samurai Yasuke.  There will be two playstyles to choose between, stealthy or stabby, and it sounds like the perfect way t…

FunPlus drops a new trailer for DC: Dark Legion showcasing more of the nefarious Batman Who Laughs

It has been almost a year since the Official Teaser Trailer for DC: Dark Legion dropped, and quite frankly I had forgotten it was a thing. Now, however, FunPlus is pushing their upcoming strategy game back into the limelight, with a new teaser trailer, and it looks quite enticing, to say the least. At this point, it is fairly obvious that The Batman Who Laughs is going to be the main villain of the story, and for good reason. If you haven’t seen much of this character, I heartily recommend you do, at least his origin. It is a character with the intellect and resources of Batman and the insanity of the Joker. It’s going to be a tough battle. Unfortunately, things keep getting wo…

Continue the story of Leon and Ethan as the latest titles from Capcom’s hit survival horror series prepare to launch on Apple devices

Halloween has come early as Capcom announces the latest Resident Evil titles to shuffle their way onto iOS. We are going backwards, as Resident Evil 7 Biohazard has a release date of July 2nd, and there is also confirmation that Resident Evil 2 is in development. Even though it may be off in the distance, Resident Evil 2 coming to iOS is very exciting. It is one of the definitive PS1 games, and the remake, which is the version being ported, is excellent. With Resident Evil 4 already on iPhone, we can continue playing the Leon Kennedy saga on the go.  To help with mobile controls, Resident Evil 7 biohazard will include a new Auto Fire feature. Simply aim at an enemy for a set amount of…

Honkai: Star Rail unveils a new trailer at Summer Game Fest that both delights and disappoints

To fill the void that E3 left, Geogg Keighley hosted the Summer Game Fest recently, and it was certainly a thing. As of right now, Keighley’s own Twix poll has the show at 40% Grade D and below, which is a whole other story altogether. Hoyoverse took part, and dropped a new trailer for Honkai: Star Rail, as well as a reveal rather in keeping with the whole show reception, at least in my opinion. Star Rail dropped a new trailer for this show, full of the reunion that a lot of fans were waiting for. Some of the trailer relies on knowledge of some spoiler-y reveals so bear that in mind. What we can say is that version 2.3, due June 19th, is the finale of the Penacony story. It centres ar…

Steady your breathing and zero your scope as Sniper Elite 4 is coming to iPhone and iPad

If your main concern when looking for a phone is gaming, then it is safe to say that Apple is making its mark in this sector. Bringing titles like Resident Evil 4 and Death Stranding to mobile is a big coup, and soon Rebellions’ Sniper Elite 4 will be joining that lineup. For those who don’t know Rebellion, they are one of the world's biggest independent video game developers, generally known for their shooters more than anything. They made the Zombie Army games, they popped out Strange Brigade a few years back which was briefly the game of the week, and, of course, the popular Sniper Elite series. Sniper Elite 4 places you in the midst of World War Two, in idyllic Italy in 194…

Marvel Snap invites a little bit of chaos into matches with latest set

In order to win in any form of card game you need to have a pretty solid strategy, but it seems with the June 2024 season, Marvel Snap is trying to ruin everyone's well-thought-out plans. How, you ask? Well, one of the locations and two cards in this Celestial’s Finest set seem intent on injecting a lot of randomness into proceedings. Let's start with the low-cost cards. Thena is a two-cost/one power who gains plus three power each turn if you've played exactly two cards, pretty niche. The three/three Phastos will give each card in your deck either minus one cost or plus two Power which is nice for the price. Finally, after a turn, the three/three Makkari will run from your hand to a…

Boxing Star gets an upgrade with what could be a game-changing buff system

Thumbage Co has announced that their sports simulator, Boxing Star, has received a few new updates. Promising pugilists are now able to train for some new buffs, repair equipment for nearly nothing, and even receive some neat gifts for simply showing up. Not a bad time to get into the ring. Getting right into the update that caught my eye the most; the Sparring System. You will now to able to undertake some training to gain buffs for both attack and defence characters. These will last for a set amount of time, and undergoing any form of sparring when this is active will cause it to be replaced, so no stacking. This does open up the game to quite a big degree and there are now a multitude o…

Capcom announces pre-registration for Monster Hunter Puzzles Felyne Isles

Back in the Nintendo 64 days, there was a puzzler called Pokemon Puzzle League, a fun romp through Kanto with a Tetris flavour. It was enjoyable, but the market is now oversaturated with IPs just cramming their own characters into puzzle games with zero meaningful mechanical changes, it's getting old. And now, thanks to the upcoming Monster Hunter Puzzles Felyne Isles, Capcom is adding another to the bloated pile. Felyne Isles follows the tale of one of Monster Hunter's adorable catty critters, the Felynes. Through the use of the classic match-3 mechanics, you will need to, you guessed it, make matches to clear the board. Combine the right things and you will find yourself surrounded by exp…

Warframe's final devstream before TennoCon delivers on the new Mission Type and character

TennoCon, Valhalla for all things Warframe, is coming up fast and Digital Extremes have recently released their last Devstream before the hallowed event. We got a new look at Warframe Jade’s upcoming abilities, the new mission type Ascension, and a breakdown of what to expect at the con. Jade is sitting firmly in the support camp of Warframes, requiring quite a high level of skill to play well. There is always a lot of action to track. She can sing a solo to buff damage or shield regen, inflict slow on foes, or unleash some heals. And, if you get too annoyed with enemies, unleash her ultimate to take to the skies and rain down holy hell. For those excited for a new mission type, we g…
