Upcoming Games You're Anticipating?

Here is my list:

1. Worms 4
Big fan of Worms so of course I'm going to be looking forward to this one. This version of Worms is said to be built from the ground up for mobile. I've never really played Worms on mobile because I'd always thought that play sessions dragged on, but it seems like this one's play sessions are just the right size.

2. CSR2
Real Racing 3 was one of my all time favorite iOS games. I spent countless hours on it. But eventually the game got repetitive to me and play sessions got too long. I then moved onto CSR it was a good fit for me. Short play sessions, fun drag racing, and plenty of cars! I've stopped playing it though, because I'm now waiting for CSR2 to soft launch.

3. Need for Speed: No Limits
The soft launch version of this game seriously had me upset, mainly because it didn't feel like a firemint racer. But its still soft launched so I'll keep my eye on it.

3. FIFA Mobile
What can I say? I love me some ultimate team.

4. Titan Quest
Never heard of this game, but apparently its a well loved one. No mobile game has yet to scratch that Diablo dungeon crawling itch. It looks like this one will.

5. Torchlight Mobile
I always welcome any MMORG to the AppStore. There are very few that I stick with but I try out all of them nonetheless. Curious to see how this one turns out.

So what games are you guys looking forward to? Ranking from most to least.

1. Heroes & Castles 2
The first installment is one of my favourite mobile games. It combines action combat with strategic castle defense and the versus mode is one of the best experiences I ever had on this platform. I am expecting no less of the second game. It also has better graphics and a lot of new features. Can't wait!
2. Aralon Forge and Flame
Huge fan of Crescent Moon since 2010. Love what they did with Aralon in collaboration with Galoobeth games. Aralon Sword and Shadow was certainly one of the better open world RPGs, and so will be the this one.
3. Mission Europa 2
One of the most under appreciated developers out there, who has been making real games back when iOS wasn't even considered a gaming platform. His work on Necromancer rising and Mission Europa 1 is amazing. Can't wait to see what he does with Mission Europa 2 in the Unity engine.
4. The Wild
Pretty sure every TA member has heard of this one. Great looking game by indie developers, might be the survival game I always wanted on mobile.
5. Submerged
Not much has been revealed about this game (or I haven't heard about it), but it looks amazing from this gameplay demo.
6. Beast Quest
An open world action adventure RPG with Infinity Blade style combat, can't resist that. Hope they don't screw it up too much with the freemium payment model and I hope it will be challenging enough.
7. The Deer God
Another visually impressive game from Crescent Moon.
8. Riot
The best looking pixel art game I've seen to date. Expecting a solid strategy game from this one. The developers are also promising to bring customizable levels, which should be quite interesting.
9. The Dream Room
Another fancy looking pixel art game, no idea what's it about though.
10. Forgotten Memories
A horror game that has been in development for years, it looks well worth the wait though.
11. Solomon
Big fan of Solomon's boneyard. A dual stick "shooter" where you play as a Mage constantly evolving your powers and mixing them with other elements? Anytime. There's also talk of new classes, oh and did I mention multiplayer yet??
12. Respite
Looks interesting, besides there aren't many FPS games to look forward to.
13. Death Road to Canada
There are too few Oregon Trail style games on iOS. Any rendition of it will always have a place on my phone.
14. Heroes of Midgard
Can't have too many action RPGs. It also has a very impressive visual style. Seriously check out the short videos and screenshots.
15. Drifter
As a big fan of space trading games (thanks Galaxy on Fire), I certainly won't let this one get past me.
16. Legacy Quest
As said, can't have too many action RPGs. Hope they don't screw the pooch with IAPs though.

The titles aren't ranked, simply numbered.

I love the iPad version, but I enjoy gaming on my iPhone a lot more. I saw the screen shots of the UI and it looks like they nailed it. Can't wait!

2. Mortal Kombat X
I was a big fan of NR's Injustice for iOS. Something about it was just addicting. Just being able to half-mindlessly play while performing badass moves and progressing while gathering badass characters. I stopped playing it a few weeks ago though, but no doubt Ill be jumping into this one though.

3. Implosion
This has been in development for some while and information has been very scarce. Not much i could say aside it from looking like a badass hack and slasher. It looks like a combination of Diablo III, Metal Gear, and Warframe. Oh and it is supposedly premium!

4. Dungeon Hunter 5
I have never been interested in the DH story but rather its standard hack and slash combat. And it looks like this one is not going to fail to deliver. I personally do not care about always online. This just seems like another Injustice in a way. Mindlessly slay crap while being able to progress and developing a badass character. But this is just a place holder until MKX comes out. I only need one of these types on games on my phone.

So what games are you guys looking forward to? Ranking from most to least.
Wow man I think you hit it spot on for me too. Plus the new Aralon game but hopefully its better than Exiles.

Yeah looking forward to aralon as well, but exiles is having me rethink that. Either way ima pick it up. Its more of a "buy it when it comes out" type of game to me. Not really anticipating it, not really tracking it, not really paying much attention to it at all, but when it launches ill pick it up and play it for sure.

There is no game I am more excited about right now than Antihero, a different and compact but still hopefully (and by what little we have to go by, ostensibly) still deep and highly tactical 4X, set in a crime-ridden Victorian London. Refreshingly unique in setting and atmosphere, but according to what few reports there are still a proper 4X, in spite of the small scale and local focus. There is only so much Starbase Orion a man can play before he needs another async 4X (where "so much" = on and off for four years).

That this is from the devs who made Bang! Howdy really doesn't lessen my enthusiasm.

Also, they develop their games in a steampunk sub.
