Ghostbusting takes a new format today, as Beeline Interactive has released Ghostbusters: Puzzle Fighter. It follows in the footsteps of other the meed Match-3s, like Marvel Puzzle Quest, which task players with assembling a team of heroes to progress through a story.

You’ll be able to collect new party members in the form of cards and put together a team with different skills. Characters include the original quartet and newer Ghostbusters from the IDW comics. Because Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter has RPG elements, you’ll be able to level your party up to take on harder challenges.

Free Pac-Man iOS & Android Game From The Crossy Road Team

about X hours ago from

If you’re one of the millions that fed countless hours into the free mobile game Crossy Road, Pac-Man 256 could be your latest addiction. The free-to-play game is out now for both iOS and Android devices. 

Pac-Man 256, named for the infamous level 256 glitch in the original Pac-Man arcade game, puts you in control of a 3D Pac-Man in an endless 2-D maze. Pac-man must outrun the glitch slowly consuming the level while using powerups to dodge and destroy the ghosts hot on his trail. Just like Hipster Whale’s previous creation Crossy Road, the goal of the game is to see how high of a score players can obtain before something inevitably brings the run to an end.

The update trailer shows Francis, Zoey, Lewis, Bill, Nick, Ellis, Coach, and Rochelle in action. Each of their characters looks just like you'd remember from their original Left 4 Dead appearances. Bill especially remains true to his original character and calmly beheads an attacking nazi-zombie with a swing of his rifle. The gallery below offers a first look at how the eight survivors will fit into the Zombie Army Trilogy universe. For even more glorious zombie fighting action, check out our Test Chamber episode featuring the game here.

Players will need to build the resistance from disparate cells around the world. In order to do that, you’ll need to move your mobile base, make contact, and bring those small groups into the fold.

Gassy Mob puts players in the unenviable position of a cute little character who has eaten too much and must pass gas around strangers and friends alike. Your farting will deeply anger these people, who will promptly form a mob and attempt to murder you. The only way to progress is to fart on new people, causing the mob to grow and your score to climb. While the premise is childish, there looks to be some deep gameplay for those who can put up with the smell.

50 Exciting Changes Coming To NBA 2K16's Franchise Modes

about X hours ago from

As sports games evolve in new directions, the decades-long mainstay franchise mode is often superseded when it comes to development resources in favor of shiny new possibilities like moneymaking Ultimate Teams, new draft modes, competitive play, and even simply playing along with a team through the regular season. The neglect of this mode is sometimes attributed to a shift in player interests, but from where I'm sitting a well-executed franchise mode offers more engagement, depth, and long-term replayability than any contending mode.

Visual Concepts senior producer Erick Boensich agrees, which is why each year he and his team push hard for the resources to build forward-thinking new features into the NBA 2K games. This year is no different. In fact, Visual Concepts staffed up with more engineers this year so the franchise mode team responsible for building MyGM and MyLeague in NBA 2K16 could think big. Here are their bold plans for continuing to raise the bar of franchise modes:

Darth Maul Stitches Himself Back Together For Disney Infinity 3.0

Darth Maul’s fate at the end of The Phantom Menace was tragic. The villain with the most potential in the prequel trilogy was snuffed out far too soon. Disney Infinity 3.0 is looking to right those wrongs.

He’ll have more opposition this time out, though. Obi Wan Kenobi is older and wiser, and he has Yoda, Anakin Skywalker, and the young padawan Ahsoka Tano along.

Like, Zoinks, Scoob! We’re In Lego Dimensions

Lego Dimensions is hanging its hat on a diverse collection of licensed properties. The latest under the spotlight is Scooby Doo.

In a new trailer, we see Shaggy, Scooby, and the gang solving mysteries alongside Batman, Wyldstyle, Gandalf, and other representatives from the many included franchises. A Ghostbusters team-up might be amusing, especially when players find out they fried a human in a rubber mask with a proton stream.
