What’s that you say? Gaming has some great heroes these days. Korvo from Dishonored, Kratos from God of War and Desmond McMonkeyface from the Assassin’s Creed franchise? I scoff at your selection. Scoff to the max. Back in the day when those guys were nothing more than pen on paper diaper concept drawings, there was one hero who stood tall and kept damn quiet.

We really don’t give enough attention to other mobile gaming devices here on the site. But with the recent announcement of powerhouse tablet devices, cell-phones and more efficient operating systems, it looks like these overlooked items may be getting more advanced games to their library, titles which will provide hours of fun and actually be more contemporary and in line with what us PC and console gamers are experiencing.
