Sometimes a good idea comes around but there’s not much consumer buy-in, possibly bad marketing, or there is poor developer support. I think most of us can admit that the way mobile games have come along in the past 12 months or so that a proper controller is needed to get the most out of games now. The only problem is the whole idea is moot unless the developers jump on board. Well it looks as if that momentum is gaining a bit – at least regarding the MOGA Mobile Gaming Controller from PowerA.
Two recent AAA games that released with MOGA controller support were Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Gaining support from the best developers is usually critical in pushing ideas forward, while almost making other games’ compatibility ‘mandatory’ just so another game doesn’t have an automatic advantage over it.
This is good news for us as consumers and gamers. The full list of games that have already launched, updated, or will soon be updated with MOGA support are:
- Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour
- BATTLE BEARS ROYALE
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
- Dead Trigger
- Wild Blood
- NFL Pro 2013
- Jet Set Radio
- Tiki Kart 3D
- Expendable Rearmed
- The Bard’s Tale
Here’s to hoping that this list continues to grow.

‘Tis the season for giving. Arcane Legends’ developer is feeling a bit generous and wants to give owners of the recently released MMORPG an update just in time for all of that holiday downtime. We aren’t talking about just slapping some Santa hats on the characters either. To begin with, players will now see a level-cap of 21. Players will also be greeted with five new dungeons to explore, a new loot chest to unlock above level 16, and new achievements along with a weapons-type shakeup for each class. There are also numerous holiday-themed goodies but we’ll leave that for you to explore and find. You may want to jump on it though as the holiday-themed goodies end – you guessed it – when the holidays wind down.
You can never have enough games featuring explosions, machines and overall destruction, right? Well that’s what 11 Bit Studios believes with its brand-new Anomaly Korea game.

There’s no word on whether or not the game will utilize a multiplayer mode, but based off of what’s included in the game, the single player campaigns may be more than sufficient enough for most gamers.
The game is due to arrive “Christmas Time”… whatever that means. But while the gaming world waits for the new beast to be released, 11 Bit Studios has released a trailer highlighting the game’s features and capabilities in the meantime. You can check out the game in its full glory once you hit past the break.
