If you’re in need of a tablet and don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars for the Apple iPad, check out the Google Nexus 7.
At 10″, with a quad-core CPU and 1280×800 display, it’s really more of a direct competitor to the Kindle Fire than anything else. The N7 is a well-built, great looking handheld that packs a punch. It feels great in the hands thanks to the rear texture, and the screen looks great and bright, with a good viewing angle (better than most tabs I’ve seen). The touch screen is responsive, gaming feels and looks great and hi-def movies look really crisp.

How did it take me so long to play this game?!
When I first heard of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games, I was admittedly skeptical. I had heard good things, but I’d also seen Telltale’s previous work – namely Back to the Future – and it wasn’t exactly a masterpiece. So when I got down to playing TWD, I wasn’t expecting too much.
Was I ever wrong: This game is amazing!

In keeping with the Halloween inspired theme of the month I give you my review of Infectonator, an 8-bit zombie infection game on the iOS.
If you’ve ever wanted to spread plague and virus on unsuspecting countries and cities in the hopes of inciting complete panic and the destruction of the entire planet, well then my friend, this is your game! (ps. You’re sick!)

Usually when I’m writing about a game based on a movie for Mat Langford’s Gaming World, it’s bad news. Let’s face it…there aren’t many great movie/tv-based games out there. So when I discovered Dexter on the iOS, I wasn’t expecting anything mind-blowing. What I got however, was something completely surprising.

There hasn’t really been a game in the last few years that truly recaptures that magic of the old-school Final Fantasy games. Sure, some have tried, but lackluster attempts and even progressive titles from Squeenix have fallen short, leaving FF gamers with a certain emptiness.
While Final Fantasy Dimensions on iOS – Sqaure Enix’s latest entry into the FF series – is a throwback to the old games, is it truly capable of bringing back the true feel of the games of yore? Find out after the jump.

Avengers fans assemble!
A new iOS/Android Avengers game is coming titled Avengers Initiative, and it’s is deemed to be the “mobile gaming event of the year.”
According to the trailer, the premise is somewhat vague, but what we do know is that someone has released every super-powered criminal you’ve captured, and those criminals are now running rampant through the city. The trailer shows specific game-play controlling the Hulk only, and – though it doesn’t show any on-screen control buttons – claims that the game’s controls and high-definition visuals have been built exclusively for touch-screen devices, which could mean a better gaming experience for those jaded by shoddy controls in previous action/adventure games.
As previously stated, the trailer shows Hulk footage only, but it is revealed that this is only the first installment, and that there will be free – I smell micro-transactions! – episodic content coming that looks to include other fan favorites Captain…

I’m admittedly a little late to the party on this one, but if you haven’t tried Fieldrunners 2 for the iOS, you don’t know what you’re missing!
For fans of tower defense games, FR2 will make you feel right at home. Instead of defending a specific point, however, you’re simply trying to stop the “fieldrunners” from getting across your screen. This is pretty simple in the opening levels, as they enter the screen from one point, and are relatively weak – allowing you to dispatch them with ease. Once you progress however, you’ll find a multitude of different units including airships, zeppelins, tanks and more coming across your screen, with varying levels of armor and speed. It gets hard…really hard.
