Fans of the once Pokemon-like now brutal monster-killing action game franchise have reason to celebrate. Somewhat. Capcom has finally bestowed upon iPhones and iPads a Monster Hunter title of its own. However, although this game has been retrofitted to be playable on mobile devices, it might not be the same Monster Hunter that you've grown to love and dreamed of playing on your iPhone.
Fans of the The Witcher games on PCs and consoles will either be filled with anticipation or dread. The popular action RPG franchise is coming to mobile devices soon, but, unsurprisingly, it won't be the same type of game you might have grown to love. The Witcher Battle Arena will indeed drop you in the middle of the game's world, but you'll be dishing it out in solo or team-based skirmishes, ala DotA or LoL.

2K Games has just made a revelation that would elate smartphone-wielding fans of the Civilization franchise.

Flappy Bird is an unlikely story of rampant success, unanticipated stardom, and, for some on the gaming end of the app, endless frustration and feelings of soul-crippling failure.

A new survey is making the rounds that shows an interesting fact, a tiny amount of mobile gamers account for half of mobile game revenues. The survey was conducted by a company called Swrve. Swrve used data collected from tens of millions of gamers to get its numbers, and the numbers are impressive.
Like a zombie that refuses to die, Flappy Bird has still been seeing some activity days after its official demise thanks to imitations and scams proliferating on the Internet. Now it seems that Google and Apple are finally putting an axe to those clones by rejecting or even removing games from iTunes App Store and Google Play Store if they have the word "Flappy" in their name.
Mobile gaming is a contentious topic right now, variously accused of being the future of play, a passing fad, or the insidious villain undermining and devaluing traditional consoles and the developers that create for them. The next to potentially embrace the smartphone might surprise you, however: Sony Online Entertainment's EverQuest, a stalwart of the MMO scene - not one normally associated with another other than hardcore gaming PCs - but one about to shake up the industry by throwing open its latest alpha to the public.
