Hearthstone 'Fireside Gatherings' to encourage real-life meets

Like any card game worth the paper it's printed on, Hearthstone is an innately social experience. It's even about Warcraft characters playing cards in a tavern! And though it boasts online features to find matches, Blizzard is enticing players to get together in real-life with a special card-back.

FarmVille 2: Country Escape hits mobile devices

FarmVille 2: Country Escape has released on iOS and Android devices this week, part of Zynga's effort to revitalize flagging franchises. The free-to-play game lets you build your farm, tend to your crops and animals, and visit with friends--but as an "escape," it is intentionally slimmed down from the more busy farming on the web application.

PlayStation Vita Pets gets Android and iOS demo

Sony's upcoming PlayStation Vita Pets is more-than-a-little-inspired by Nintendogs. But, Sony's doing something Nintendo has never done before: releasing a demo version of their game on mobile.

"We wanted to give people the opportunity to get to know the pups in advance of the full game's release and experience one of the core aspects at the same time," Sony XDev associate producer Neil McPhillips explained. "So we put together the app to allow players to run their own puppy pampering parlor." It's called PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlor.

Hitman GO preview: Agent 47 goes tabletop

Hitman GO preview: Agent 47 goes tabletop

Perhaps one of the biggest surprises of PAX East was Hitman GO, a made-for-mobile game from Square Enix that turns Agent 47's stealth-murdering into a turn-based tabletop game. It's absolutely adorable.

Players play the game by simply swiping a Hitman character across spots on the board. Enemies will also move, but can be distracted using rocks and other tools. Being directly spotted by a guard will result in failure, but moving into their spot while they're turned around will make them open for a kill.

The Game Atelier make their games free to promote Flying Hamster 2

The Game Atelier's Flying Hamster became a surprise hit, downloaded over 1.7 million times ever since its humble debut on PSP back in 2010. The French studio wants to make a sequel-of-sorts, and is turning to Kickstarter to make their game real.

Although the original game was a hyper-cute shmup, Flying Hamster 2: Knight of the Golden Seed switches genres, turning into a platforming action RPG. It's still hyper-cute.

Trials Frontier review: training wheels

Trials Frontier review: training wheels

Trials is a series that's built on completing short courses of about a minute each, so it makes sense that Ubisoft and RedLynx would bring their motorcycle-driven series to mobile devices. Trials Frontier makes a valiant effort to reach the heights of its console big brothers, even in the face of familiar (and unwelcome) free-to-play elements. Though Frontier may not quite have the same addictive pull as its predecessors, it's a very solid racing game on its own and one that transitions well to mobile platforms.

Frontier immediately stands out from previous Trials games by introducing a story. A western-themed town is being terrorized by a notorious biker and it's up to the player to track him down and beat him in a one-on-one race. This element allows the game to add in various characters to offer missions and goals for certain trial runs.

R.B.I. Baseball 14 review: easy out

R.B.I. Baseball 14 review: easy out

Nostalgia is a powerful tool. MLBAM is bringing back the NES classic R.B.I. Baseball, replicating the "good ol'" two-button gameplay of old with a presentation that tries to compete with today's more sophisticated sims. Does it pay off?

Playing homage to its simplistic origins, R.B.I. Baseball 14 is not an in-depth sim along the lines of the recently released MLB 14: The Show. Instead, it's an arcade game with just three basic modes to choose from: Exhibition, Season and Post-Season. There's multiplayer as well, but you're limited to playing with a pal in the living room, as the game's only online support is leaderboards.
