As promised by its developer Dong Nguyen, Flappy Bird is back. For those who somehow missed out on the story, Nguyen came up with a simple, but highly addictive game, where you control Flappy Bird and try to maneuver the foul fowl through a series of pipes borrowed from Mario Brothers. The game became so popular, that it was soon generating $50,000 a day in ad revenue.
Surprisingly, at the peak of its popularity, Nguyen pulled the game from all of the app stores it was in, claiming that the game was getting too addictive. In addition, the developer was not ready for the amazing success of the game. He did promise that it would return, with a message to users warning them that the game could be addictive.
After months of game players going through Flappy Bird withdrawal, we are happy to report that the game is back, albeit with a few changes. Now titled 'Flappy Birds Family' the game offers a two-player mode. New obstacles, like ghosts, stand in the way of Flappy Bird's successful journey.
For now at least, Flappy Birds 'Family' can be found only in the Amazon Appstore, and can only be used for the Amazon Fire TV set-top box. The game now supports supports Amazon's Fire TV remote, and its dedicated video game controller. Players will push a button instead of tapping on a touchscreen in order to control Flappy Bird.
Are you a fan of Christopher Nolan's highly-acclaimed Dark Knight trilogy, your favorite game has just been released on Google Play Store.
Introducing Batman: Arkham Origins, a brawler that puts you in the armored shoes of the Caped Crusader. All in all, the game is somewhat similar to the likes of Tekken or Mortal Kombat, but it certainly lacks the depth and the sophisticated controls of your average fighting video game. All you can do is tap once for a straight jab, three times for a combo, and slide the screen in certain moments in order to unleash a critical punch.
Despite the overall simplicity of the gameplay mechanics, you'll need to adapt your fighting style accordingly to your opponent. Speaking of rivals, we get to beat up a whole galaxy of notorious Batman villains. Yet again, before you get to fight the more popular foes, you'll have to crawl all the way up to the top of Gotham's criminal sludge.

Today, Gameloft community manager, Florian Weber, was annoyed and pissed off because the company's biggest FPS game "Modern Combat 5" got pirated.
Well, the story begins when Gameloft gave away early access copies of the iOS version of their latest Modern Combat 5: Blackout game to contest winners. Instead of being thankful and playing the game as they were expected, some of these people cracked the game and uploaded it on pirating sites, note that Only the iOS version of the game got pirated (not Android!!).
Gameloft doesn't accept this kind of piracy. The company will also be banning anyone found to be using the pirated version of the game, preventing them from playing further. As we mentioned in our review, the game requires a constant internet connection to work, so the ban can be executed easily. The company made this official statement :
"Following the release of several pirated versions of Modern Combat 5 prior the release of the game, we have turned on our anti-piracy systems and now all illegitimate users on a non-official version have been incapacitated." - Gameloft
If you really want to play the game, it will be out on iOS, Android and Windows Phone on July,24.
