[Ooga Chaka] Marvel Releases A Guardians Of The Galaxy Action-RPG With No IAPs: You're Welcome

Raise your hands if you're excited about Guardians of the Galaxy. Now put them back down, because this is a text-based news story and I can't see you. As usual before a big summer movie, Marvel has released a new mobile game to get fans excited for the upcoming release. But what I'm really excited about is the fact that Marvel published the game itself (instead of outsourcing it to Gameloft) without the usual free-to-play trappings. Yup, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Ultimate Weapon is a $5 paid game, with no in-app purchases.

Despite the cutesy Tartakovsky-style graphics, the game is based on the upcoming movie, not the niche comics.

The Witcher Battle Arena Is An Eye-Catching DotA-Style Multiplayer Action RPG Due Out Later This Year

Developer CD Projekt Red has something impressive in the works for fans of The Witcher in need of a mobile fix. Its upcoming game, The Witcher Battle Arena, is a multiplayer experience akin to DotA and League of Legends, but set in the rich medieval universe made popular by the PC/console video game series that's been around since 2007 (themselves based on a series of books). The game was demoed at this year's E3, and it looks awesome.

In each battle, six heroes enter the arena and compete over three conquest points, hoping to capture and hold them longer than the other side.

Brandnew Boy

What's this? An anime-style action-RPG with full 3D visuals and movement? Indeed, Brandnew Boy (which I suppose is a better title than "Cliché Amnesiac Anime Savior") seems like a surprisingly polished little brawler built on the Unreal engine, with enough energetic style to tide over the most ardent console gamer.

[New Game] Square Enix's Deus Ex: The Fall Is Now Available Inside The Play Store For $6.99

Most games that get released for Android are decidedly casual. They're intended for quick, pick-up-and-play encounters when you have a few moments to kill while waiting in the fast food line or in the back seat of a cab. Most, frankly, can't compare to the lean-back experience we get from console games (or the lean-forward immersion of their PC brethren). Square Enix's Deus Ex: The Fall is a different beast entirely. This is a full-blown entry in the series designed from the ground up for touchscreens, and after getting released inside the Apple App Store this past summer, it's finally made its way over to Google Play.

[New Game] Lightbringers: Saviors Of Raia Brings Another Wave Of Co-Op 4-Player Hack And Slash Action To Android

From the company that brought us Nun Attack and the action-packed followed-up Nun Attack: Run & Gun comes Lightbringer: Saviors of Raia, an entirely different property that bears zero resemblance to the aforementioned titles. This new IP is decidedly less casual, and its 4-player multiplayer hack and slash gameplay might just be enough to keep Diablo fans satisfied when they're away from their computers.

[New Game] Blood Sword Hits The Play Store Just In Time For NVIDIA SHIELD Launch, Exclusive To Tegra Devices

While we published an exhaustive list of all the content currently availably for SHIELD yesterday, many of the more graphically intense titles were ports of games you may have completed years before. Blood Sword is a fresh piece of eye candy just raring to help you break in your new device.

BloodSword1 BloodSword3 BloodSword2

BloodSword4

This is a top-down action RPG in the style of Diablo and Baldur's Gate - or, if you've only played mobile games, SoulCraft. The view pans down to resemble a third-person action game during boss fights, but the camera remains high during levels to provide players with a clear vantage point.

[Bonus Round] Ku: Shroud Of The Morrigan, Battle Bears Gold, And World War Z

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got an interesting take on old-school action RPGs, a new version of an adorably violent shooter, and yet another game licensed from a summer blockbuster. Without further ado:

Ku: Shroud Of The Morrigan

Ku seems to have everything I want in a mobile game: fast, fluid combat, controls that are designed for touchscreens first and foremost, and more style than you can shake a shaleighleigh at.

Bladeslinger Review: More Than Just A Pretty Face

Bladeslinger is one of those games that makes a splash with impressive trailers and promises of console-level gaming, but how often have we been left heartbroken by similar titles? This game sets out to tell a story, so at least it has that going for it. William Glaston is just your average cowboy with a revolver-gun and robot arm, but things get weird when he returns to his home town of Hammer's Peak to find it overrun with monsters that used to be the townsfolk. The story unfolds as Glaston wanders the seedier parts of Hammer's Peak in search of his brother, and the cause of the corruption.
