A couple of weeks ago we reported on a new game coming from Gamevil called Darkness Reborn along with the first teaser trailer for it.

Way back in November of 2012 we reported on the development studio Origin8 who were in the midst of developing the fourth installment into their Sentinel franchise called Sentinel 4: Dark Star.

A new 'endless' game is heading our way in a couple of days called Chop Block by Vital Zigns. Technically this game is an endless 2D platformer where you control this little block character and try to survive as long as possible by avoiding massive saws that are bend on slicing you up.

SEGA and fast growing e-hail app Hailo have teamed up to bring a sort of real-life Crazy Taxi experience to New York Comic Con which will be happening October 9th and 10th.

We haven't talked about a game going to Kickstarter for funding in awhile but today a new title is looking for funding and it looks very promising. Rogue Wizards RPG is the game and it is being developer by Spellbind Studios. This is their first game that will also be released onto multiple platforms (Android, iOS, PC) but the biggest aspect about this Kickstarter campaign is that it has praise from some seriously big people in the game industry: the creators of Diablo, Torchlight, Left 4 Dead, and Marvel Heroes.

Anytime I hear the name Ubisoft mentioned, I always focus my attention on the story. The game developer has a long successful history in creating dynamic console games, as well as mobile games. A few weeks ago, word of a new Assassin's Creed game (Assassin's Creed: Identity) in development for Android/iOS, seemingly appeared out of nowhere. This week, it has been announced, that a new game from the Ubisoft Shanghai Studio will arrive next week. The game is called The Bot Squad: Puzzle Battles. It will arrive in the Play Store October 16th.
The next installment into the Reckless Racing franchise will be heading to Android later this month. The last two Reckless Racing games were developed by Pixelbite Studios and released onto Google Play by Polarbit but while Pixelbite will be making Reckless Racing 3, there is no mention of Polarbit publishing it this time. That doesn't mean that they won't be publishing it, but for whatever reason it seems like that might be up in the air right now.

Samsung has been working on their own virtual reality headset since the Oculus VR was bought by Facebook, essentially opening up the market for other companies to make their own virtual reality headsets for gaming and other goodies.
