The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may be hoarding up gamers' attention right now with their E3 promises of mind-blowing graphics, but Gameloft is teasing phenomenal visuals that will fit inside your pocket. Asphalt 8 Airborne is due out this summer, and at only 99 cents, you might not be able to find more polygons for your buck.
Consumers have dropped $59 for visuals like these for years now, and while the next console leap is ushering in a sizable upgrade, do they compensate for the $58 difference in price?
Gameloft is preparing to unveil the newest incarnation of it's popular and totally original first-person shooter franchise Modern Combat. We can glean several things from the trailer: there will be guns, there will be helicopters, and oh my god the graphics.
This trailer is obviously designed to look as good as it possibly can, but it does seem to be a cut above Gameloft's previous efforts. The level of detail is impressive and texture resolution is very high.

I have many fond memories of sitting around the kitchen table with my family and playing Uno as a child. The thrill of getting down to one or two cards, hoping that no one throws down a Reverse, Draw Four, or changes the color is still one that I readily recall (and miss). Alas, life goes on, people get older and move away, and before you know it, those simple games of Uno are nothing but a memory of something that you had no idea you'd miss so much.

We first caught a glimpse of Gameloft's Team Fortress 2 clone Blitz Brigadeback in late January. If you've been chomping at the bit to get in on the action since then, the day has finally arrived: BB is now live in the Play Store.
The game was only published this morning, but it already has an unprecedented 450+ (mostly positive) ratings in the store – a true testament to the excitement surrounding the title.
I had a revelation last year: when it comes to my favorite superheroes, I'm a big fan of the "normal" guys who just have lots of money and gadgets. That's not to say that Wolverine, Thor, and the like aren't complete and total badasses, but there's just something to be said for millionaire philanthropists looking for a bit of vigilante justice.
For those who may be outside the super hero loop (way outside of it), I'm referring to Batman and Iron Man.
If you're a fan of high quality mobile games, there's a good chance you've at least tried your hand at Gameloft's Modern Combat series. The latest installment – Zero Hour – builds upon its predecessors to offer some of the most in-depth, graphically rich, immersive gameplay that we've ever seen on a mobile device. It seems like only yesterday graphics like these were considered amazing on consoles – and now they're readily available on phones and tablets.
The fourth incarnation of Gameloft's action-RPG Dungeon Hunter franchise is going to be coming out in the near future, but the developer is already priming the pump with a teaser trailer. Unlike some other pre-release trailers, this one actually includes gameplay footage. Take a gander.
It looks like the same kind of hack-and-slash gameplay from past editions of Dungeon Hunter at work here. There will still be an arena where you can do battle against other humans, but the main quest will surely be the meat of the experience.
Order & Chaos is Gameloft's fantasy-themed MMORPG franchise, but the French developer's newest title in the series is a bit of a departure. Order & Chaos Duels is a card game in the spirit of Magic, but with simplified rules. It has an offline campaign mode, as well as online PvP play.
Order & Chaos Duels has over 250 cards to collect. Some of them are common, and you might come across them as random drops.
