Chaos Rings Ventures Into Social Waters With Next Title
If you play RPG games on mobile you have probably heard of the Chaos Rings Franchise from Square Enix. It’s wildly popular and with good reason. Square Enix wants to take Chaos Rings social though so you can not only play a great RPG but interact with other players. Chaos Rings Sigma as it will be called is going to be a TCG based game it looks like and it will feature 27 of the main characters throughout the series. Its supposedly going to be a free title with IAP support. So once its released we can give a little more detail on how those things are going to affect the game if at all.
Upcoming Brawler Title Kavinsky Looks Top Notch
There’s just something about cell-shaded games that i really dig. They look so damn cool and it just makes me feel like i’m controlling the characters inside of a comic book or graphic novel. The upcoming brawler type game from Vincent Belorgey called Kavinsky has this style and the game looks absolutely stunning. Kavinsky is going to be an old school retro brawler game with ass kicking and driving fast cars, which everyone knows of course is the recipe for success in a game like this. Along with the games retro theme comes the ability to swap out the graphics for 16-bit ones if you so choose in ‘retro game mode’. One of the other cool features of Kavinsky that seems to be gaining some popularity in games is augmented reality. You will be able to use your devices rear facing camera to fight in special bonus levels that use the scenery of the area your in as a background. Legit right? Excited for Kavinsky like I am? The official release onto all supported mobile platforms is supposed to be on July 8th. So we should only have two more days till we see how Kavinsky will stack up.
Real Racing 3 Update Comes With Huge Game Tweaks Like Career Progression And Trial Mode
Real Racing 3 despite all its bad press and hate filled reviews around launch is still a widely popular racing title on mobile. The reason is because its still an awesome game, and its about to get more awesome. The newest update, called “prestige” is going to bring some hefty changes. A brand new career progression, trial mode and new cars are just some of the things we will see in this new update. Over 180 events are part of this new update along with the ability to buy cars from Bentley and Mercedes-Benz. Two very welcomed manufacturers to the game I think. The new game mode that will be introduced called time trial mode, will let you race against others from all over the world, and the fastest time gets to take home the bragging rights. Just like other elements in the game, you’ll have to accumulate enough in game currency to participate in Time Trial races which you obtain over time. The new currency is called Drive and you can either let it stack up as time goes on or purchase more via IAP. All the same, the new update seems to be pretty cool and will make the game a lot more fun.

New Angry Birds Update Brings Along Special Powers For The Red Bird
Angry Birds has long been a household name in mobile gaming. There are many different types of Angry Birds games, and they get updated frequently with new content so you always have some more 3 star goals to achieve. The one thing that has always been missing though is powers for the red bird. Previously, if you flung him and then tapped on the screen like you would for other birds all you would get is a squawk. That all changes with this new update. The red bird finally gets his own powers, ‘Red’s Mighty Feathers’. The powers aren’t all that’s new though, you’ll have a host of new levels to play through as well like with most Angry Birds updates. Along with the new levels comes a new game mode called “egg defender” which will have the birds trying to protect their eggs from would be piggy thieves. The new game mode seems to be a mesh of Angry Birds and Bad Piggies as the pigs will be using their contraptions (all 72 of them) to try and steal the egg away. Sounds like a huge update for the game and it is live in the play store now so if you haven’t done it yet, now is a good time to do so.
