Mobile Monday No tricks in this Mobile Monday. Not a one. Just because it's that April 1st holiday thing doesn't mean we have to participate, right? We're still recovering from the massive influx of news from the two recent game-centric events. We've read all the news and carefully selected the most awesome bits to share with you. Because you're awesome. No tricks!

Mobile Monday So many new games! It's like, why can't the future be here now? Or, why can't the games I'm bored with be not here while the exciting games I don't have be here? And why can't a normal day at the office be more like a video game?!

Mobile Monday Geeky times call for geeky games, and this edition of Mobile Monday shows no shortage of said stylings. We've got a gorgeous point and click puzzle game, a math-driven roguelike, and a so-very-retro puzzle hybrid crossing from iOS to Android. We'd love to quote Maximus from that old gem of a film Gladiator about being entertained, but that'd be a bit expected, wouldn't it?

Link Dump Friday Horror, merit badges, and... rapping over one of the most beloved JRPGs of all time? Hmmm. Anywhere else, that wouldn't make any sense. But here, throw in a sale of a pack of celebrated indie point-and-click adventures, some crafting, and it's just another Link Dump Friday!

Mobile Monday Time to get some thieving in! And we're not just talking about games that feature thieving. It's also games being given away for free, which is sort of thievery. Not really, but it sounds a little more exciting when you think about it that way.

Link Dump Friday Normally if you snooze, you lose, but at least one of the games in this week's Link Dump Friday features a hero who sleeps his way to and through adventure! Tack on some zombies, a sequel to a celebrated indie RPG, the next chapter in a story about dreams and memories, and a little spiritual succession to one of the greatest RPGs of all time, and you have a recipe for success!

Link Dump Friday A houseful of genetically enhanced kittens. A dimensional-warping, child-stealing monstrosity. A tribe of Vikings to be lead to victory. And Wilson, who's still stuck thanks to that darn demon, and now we know why. Packed with the weird and wonderful, it's another Link Dump Friday!

Mobile Monday Here's a trend we wouldn't mind seeing proliferate: games releasing alongside reference guides. Sure, you see the word "reference" and automatically think "boring" and sure, it's not a good idea for every game to do this, but in the case of Year Walk, a game based on Swedish folklore, a companion release that features more detailed mythological information is an amazing idea. Now we're almost more exciting about the companion than the game itself!

Mobile Monday Do you ever stare at your iPhone or Android phone and just ask it what the heck it thinks it's doing? Sitting there, sucking power out of the battery, awaiting your commands like some sort of obedient machine. And then, when you're playing a game and suddenly fail, why it made you do that? Because you totally had the skills to pull that jump off, it was your phone's fault you missed it. Your phone's fault...

Link Dump Friday I don't know about you, but I like to kick off my weekends with creepy cosplay, Metroidvania adventure, and science. Luckily, this week's Link Dump Friday has all three! From a commercial re-imagining and overhaul of the 2011 indie game of the year to a musical celebration of deadly technology, this week has something for everyone.

Link Dump Friday This week on Link Dump Friday, we set sail for IndieGoGo where we discover two very intriguing projects... one a sequel to a 2008 indie RPG, and another a fur-filled horror puzzle adventure set in deep space. As a bonus, an absurdly addictive iOS hit comes to your PC, the Dustforce devs cook up something new, and Slender Man is right behind you.

Did you know that Stonehenge is actually a massive in-progress game of tic-tac-toe? Or that the pyramids are the only remaining pieces of a game of chess? Your move, gargantuan space aliens.

Link Dump Friday Coming up in 2013. A game with a hat the Doctor would approve of, and monstrous time-traveling mayhem... that the Doctor probably would NOT approve of, but he's not here right now, is he? Also: Hotline Miami gets evidence as to why it could never have been a text adventure, and an effortlessly addictive free casual roguelike gets an update.
