Rooster Teeth vs Zombiens Invades the App Store

By Lory Gil on Nov 19, 2014

The whole “aliens versus zombies” thing is way overrated. We all know that zombies would win. They can’t die and they turn you into one of them with just a single bite. If they were fighting aliens, well, they would turn them into “Zombiens.” Or, at least that’s what the protagonist of this game has dubbed them

Rooster Teeth vs Zombiens is a survival game starring the cast members of Rooster Teeth Studios (the guys that created the hilarious web series Red vs. Blue). If you want the RT cast to stay alive, you’d better learn how to fight. Read More

Vainglory, a much anticipated multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game that Apple featured during the September 2014 iPhone 6 keynote, launched unexpectedly early and is now available for download in select App Stores, developers announced Tuesday. Created by a team with a rather interesting name, Super Evil Megacorp, Vainglory for the iPhone and iPad is their first game ever but Apple was so impressed they decided to feature the game as a showcase of the graphics power provided by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

We’ve got a hands-on game review of Icewind Dale for you today. Read More
