In Skulls of the Shogun, developer 17-Bit has brought scores of undead samurai to the field so that they may engage in fierce turn-based battles... to the death. The game has been around since early 2013 when it launched for Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. Before the year was up, the game moved to PlayStation 4/Vita and iOS. In May of this year, it hit Mac and Linux as part of a Humble Bundle.
Gaming is one of the things Amazon touted quite a bit for Fire TV, and the company released an exclusive title called Sev Zero to show off everything its set-top box can do. The game is a mixture of tower defense and action shooter, which offers a unique blend of gameplay.
The company also released a companion app for the Kindle Fire HDX, which allows a two player co-op experience where the second player offers air support for player one.
Do you remember going to the arcade as a kid (... or an adult) and playing Crazy Taxi? The awesome soundtrack, the absurd physics? The almost unbelievable number of taxi drivers with unbuttoned shirts? Those were the good old days, and you paid for them - maybe $0.50 a pop for a ride in the Crazy Taxi seat.
Well, if you liked paying for Crazy Taxi by the minute then, you'll love paying for it on a regular basis now!
In what will surely be a crushing blow to at least four, maybe five gamers across the globe, Sony has announced that it is ending support for its branded PlayStation Mobile game store and platform. If you'll recall, that's the app and control setup that is (or was) exclusive to Xperia phones and tablets, plus a few select models from HTC and Sharp. In a statement posted to the Japanese PlayStation website, the company said that devices running versions of Android past 4.4.3 would not be supported.

Update: As it turns out, there's many more where that came from. Carcassonne is part of Amazon's current "Over $100 in Essential Apps FREE Thursday and Friday Only" deal. It's joined by a slew of free apps and games.
There's always a free app of the day in the Amazon Appstore, but sometimes consumers are treated to multiple giveaways on the site at the same time. Today's free app, Sorcery, is joined by Carcassonne, which just happens to be going for the glorious price of $0.00 at the same time.
